Dustin, I volunteer for mod. Come on, give me a chance. Can I be any worse than Steele?

Hi Rogue,
Thanks for your offer. I will chat about it with the other mods.

I haven't felt much positivity from you lately tho. If you'd like to contribute I would encourage you to start doing so in your posts as a player first.

Never fear, Rogue... based on recent events, I'm sure your turn will come too!

The New New Colossus
After Emma Lazarus


Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A flighty Canadian with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned souls of exiles, and his name
Lord of Quasars*. From his beacon-hand
Glowed world-wide welcome; now glaz'd eyes ignore
The online harbor that once brought fame.
“Keep, ancient players, your storied pomp!” cries he
With silent lips. “Give me your inept, your crude,
Your huddled masses desperate to medal,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the feckless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door of Mod-dom!”

dustin,

Given the fact that PJB has a proven history of harassing Luxers outside of Lux, I am EXTREMELY uncomfortable with the fact that as a moderator, he has access to our billing information, including real names and addresses.

i strongly urge you to reconsider this action.

Dear TSK:

Thank-you for voicing your (very valid) concern. As moderator-in-training, I wish to inform you that we have received your comment. Please allow 4-6 weeks for dustin to reply, or never, whichever comes first.


Positively yours,

RogueMonk

Hi TSK, thanks for sharing your concerns. In the interests of being extra safe, I have gone ahead and disabled PJB's ability to see users real names or addresses, while leaving him the other mod powers. I hope this assuages you.

That said, the one person whom PJB harassed in the past had a long history of starting fights and spreading abuse in our community. That doesn't excuse PJB's actions, but it should add some context to it. It's not like it was out of the blue malicious activity. In fact, that asshat in question continues to actively hack Lux (having recently impersonated a mod in order to maliciously shut down the sillysoft hosts).

For the people that feel uncomfortable with me being a mod i find this a very good solution. Thank you dustin. That being said i have no interest in any personal details of any Luxer.

I had the same concerns and doubts when TSK and her buddy became mod and supermod.

TSK you're talking about harassing Luxers but other than your friend i never harassed anyone. I responded back after a few years of harassment and bullying by your friend. Looking back on it it was a stupid move but after being harassed and bullied by your friend for about 2 to 3 years, i signed him up for 1 multiple genres newsletter in 2011(that included sex, travel, food, sports etc. newsletters). True that's harassment but he is great in harassing and bullying luxers, back then i thought he had it coming. You have no clue what he has done to me before i signed him up for a newsletter.

Some other things. I do believe that Lux Delux is over his highlight and there is not much i can do about that.
I will work with what is left and promise that going forward I will use my modship for the greater good of Lux.

Thanks, dustin. I hope you are truly able to do that.

It doesn't assuage all my concerns, but certainly would deal with the most pressing one if possible. I understand that you have a very limited pool these days for mod choices. I think the concern about GFips' behavior on Sunday during the chase highlights that. Based on my interactions with PJB over many years, I would expect his behavior to be similar in such situations.

While I'm "bitching", I think it would be a more honest reflection of Lux' current state to tidy up the mod roster. Moderators who haven't participated in months or even years might be given one last opportunity to respond. If they would like to keep that designation, for whatever reason, fine. It might even inspire them to actually rejoin the cult. If they don't respond, or are no longer interested, remove them.

Dustin, thanks so much for being responsive and attentive. You answered TSK in near record time. If this is the new and improved dustin that you last promised 19 months ago, then I'm possitively excited. Things are looking up! I'm sure your notice about your two new mods will be forthcoming! Or maybe you are preferring to keep that announcement invisible, like some of the current mods. That makes sense, um, I'm positively sure. :smt023

TSK, thanks for demanding accountability. :smt058

PJB, not sure what to say. Also, not sure why you need to throw stones at somebody who can't answer for themselves. Would have been more helpful to simply note the past transgression without the other stuff. Oh, and btw, who are you? Do you even play lux? :smt017


Now.....back to ME....this thread is about ME. :panic:


/me waits for dustin's welcome to the mod-squad PM.

/me also promises to actually play actively in games and contrinute the lux community. positively.

/me also super-duper positively promises not to sign people up for gay porn.

What a way to start--by flinging mud and being a jerk.

Let me say, when dustin appoints me mod, my first act will to not be jerk. I'm positive on that.

Now, new mod, stop hijacking my thread. Make your own.
