Skip to comments.When an Admin Mod lies, what do we do?
Posted on 07/16/2010 11:25:36 PM PDT by ex 98C MI Dude
Oh, Boy! An Admin Mod lied his/her behind off in order to protect a liar!
An Admin Mod decided to lie to this Freeper, and say that Responsibility2nd didn't make the post he did...
It cost this Freeper $50. Should that Mod be banned?
This will go well.....
Hello? Admin Moderator doesn’t exist. It’s just a figment of your vivid imagination.
Hope that helps.
If someone posted a thread accusing a fellow freeper of lying, without providing any details or background, would you take that claim seriously?
Release your chakra.
I like Chocolate Covered Crunchy Frogs, myself.
It takes a special kind of slime to do get a FReeper to kick over money under false pretenses. The Admin Mod said that R2nd hadn’t made a post that was deleted, but it turns out he had. This post backs it up http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/gop/2553442/posts?page=34#34
I cannot accept an Admin Mod who lies. Too many good people donate to this site. This Admin Mod just urinated all over them.
I kicked over the cash because this is the one place where we can expect conservatism.
But the Admin Mod might as well be Mitt Romney or Barney Frank.
Admin Mod, do you deny it?
You ask that question as if WE decide who goes and stays on this board.
Since we don't, isn't your question being directed to the wrong 'place'?
there was an old proverb something bout a fool and his money parting or something like that
how’d you lose the money?
You’ve been here five years longer than I have, yet this is the first time I can recall seeing your handle.
Probably the last time, too.
It’s all a plot to get the rest of us to make $50 bets on whether you’ll still be here in the morning, with FR being the beneficiary of all the wagers.
They do it all the time.
$50????... I have never heard of FR “fines” before. Have you been scammed?
lol...second chakra, to be precise.
Maybe it wasn't a lie, but human error.
I think I've make misidentification mistakes ONCE, or TWICE, or more than I'd like to admit. How about you?
It won’t, but I expect it not to.
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/gop/2553442/posts?page=34#34 is what I base this on.
And here is what caused it: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/gop/2553442/posts?page=34#34
I'm rather partial to the spring surprise, although I don't partake in them myself.
Oh... that's hittin' below the belt!
Um - it appears to me that the deleted post in question (#17) was by 2ndDivisionVet and not Responsibility2nd.
The Admin Mod claimed that the post wasn’t deleted. It was. It was obscene. And now money has changed hands becuase the Admin Mod chose to lie.
It makes it interstate fraud.
There’s nothing in that thread that would indicate that a Mod lied about anything. Even if it happened, why get so worked up about it?
But have you tried the Ram’s Bladder Cup Drenched in Lark Vomit?
Whatever you do, don’t post a vanity about it. The mods hate that.
Love that pic. But you aren’t quite getting that the Admin Mod lied to me on a forum run by JimRob, with the knowledge that money would change hands. Makes it a criminal matter.
I’m partial to cheese.
Best belly laugh I had all day.
Just like this one did.
I believe that all the mod work is outsourced outside of the country, you may want to contact Interpol.
why would the mod lie? what is the 50 bucks all about? is that some sort of FR fine? really, I’m a bit lost here MI.
Dude. Are you out of your freaking mind?
Anyone smell that ozone smell of electricity?
1. The post was by 2ndDivisionVet.
2. That poster says here in that thread it was supposed to be a picture of: "Star Trek's Mr. Spock with a beard."
3. In all likely; 2ndDivisionVet linked to a picture that doesn't allow others to take their bandwidth. You see it all the time. Little messages on pictures that were removed. Some though, change the image to a disgusting picture to counter remote linking.
It’s a sign that the Powers That Be trust you.
They knew that if you lost the bet, you’d pay up and FR would be $50 to the good.
They weren’t so sure about the other guy.
So really, they lied ‘cause they ~like~ you.
It’s true. The MOD lied to protect me. I have carried this secret all my life.
I am Amelia Earhart.
‘Suicide by mod’ maybe? I don’t have a clue either LH.
Me too...never known a mod to say “wanna bet?” and mean it.
And when you are completely f’ing wrong because you saw a 2nd and read what you thought was right, what do you do?
Mmmmm. This begs the question: Should someone who falsely (albeit in good faith) accuses a mod, be banned?
I got banned once because somebody was either mistaken, or lied. It didn’t take long to correct the situation, because I contacted the proper people.
I didn’t plead my case to the public (hard to do anyway while you are banned), as you are doing. I don’t know what you think we should do.
When posts are deleted, I look at them as never having existed. Off limits. I don’t need to know what they said, or why they were removed, or who did it. If I do know, then I avoid even discussing it with others.
Using an ADMIN MOD to back up a bet in a wager seems like a poor decision to begin with. You are putting the ADMIN MOD in the position of REVEALING the POSTER who was censured.
The whole point of removing a post is to remove discussion about it, and remove it from public display.
When that happens, the wisest thing is to ‘drop it’.
Nah. They won’t zot me. They love me. Right Admin Mod?
(free play period)
NO. Next time offer the ADMIN MOD 50% of the take, and you won't have this problem.
Maybe you could get your new friend Admin Moderator to pull the whole thread so everyone can forget about it. You think he/she will do it for ya?
You were wrong? That will be $100, thank you.
Ah, well, guess I am zotted. Been a good run since 2002. But the post was made. JimRob earned his $150 this quarter. Adeiu, you SOBs!
