Title: Atlas and a public plea
Post by: dree12 on September 12, 2012, 01:25:12 AM
This is Atlas. Negotiations are underway to bring me back on the forums under the following conditions:

- I use one account.

- No trolling or vandalism is done.

- I respect the rules of the forums.

- My thread creation is kept at a minimum.

The acceptance of this agreement is pending.

I wish to thank Blitzboom (Blitz) for his support in this endeavor.
(emphasis mine)

In 87 posts and little over a day, Atlas has started 14 topics (including one poll). I believe this does not meet the condition given. This is a public plea to continue enforcing sanctions upon him until his thread creation is truly reduced.

It's 9/11 nutjob day and he's just trying to reach his quota.

I realize it is September 11, but the creation of 14 (!) threads in little over a day is utterly ridiculous. Many Hero Members have not created that many threads.

Just from observing on the sidelines.
The admins have given him a second chance and you should too. There is still that much shitposting in this forum that it barely matters. Plus you can put him on ignore this way... he'll post anyway with a new account every 3 days otherwise like last months.

Don't get me wrong, love the guy, I forgot to put a smiley at the end of that phrase  ::)

I even proposed him to represent "Bitcoin100" last year, but he said something about not feeling too well and didn't jump in.

Is it just me, or does anyone else actually enjoy atlas? I'm actually quite fond of him, although he may start 50 threads per day, he doesn't start stupid god damn threads about Pirate, or MNW, and he gives all of us something to chuckle about. Look at how many Atlas references and jokes have been used over the last year; they have kept us entertained. I say, he is one of those things that defines what Bitcoins are. And I'd much rather have Bitcoin defined by Atlas than never ending scams, extortion, and overall assholery.


Title: Re: Atlas and a public plea
Post by: theymos on September 12, 2012, 02:28:51 AM
I gave him another chance. He often does post good stuff, and his topics attract a lot of debate. I'm hoping he'll minimize the annoying stuff this time around. We'll see.

I think it would be fair to limit his ability to create new threads. Let him make, say, 1 per day. That is still much more than anybody else on this forum. His threads tend to be repetitive and clutter up the boards. Many of the threads he starts should really just be replies to existing threads.

At the current highest, I believe is Phinnaeus Gage with 8091 post.
If Atlas where to make on average 85 post a day without missing any days along with no one else making any post to make the original highest-poster loose their place; then, it would take Atlas ~95 days (a little over 3 months).

This habit stems from my years on 4chan. I've managed to create pages of active topics and get away with it because I was Anonymous.

Is it just the number of posts that is bothering you? in a sort of "Do what you say you are going to do" sort of way? I agree

But apart from that, It hasn't stopped any business from occurring, so hey, better than the ponzi puppet pals having a mental breakdown again, Better than MNW pulling another "prank", Better than people attacking bitcoin for... well the things that make it brilliant...

That said, welcome back Atlas. Now go hunt down Matthew's hero-member account. I found it.

Atlas, the way you immediately went back to trolling yesterday with image macros and ad homs when I said something you didn't like doesn't bode well for your future here. Your only saving grace was you moderated yourself, so I let it go. I probably won't next time.

At the very least, if Atlas is going to be a part of these forums again, we should consider a "Scammer" label over his theft of CPU cycles for Bitcoin mining on webpages via Javascript, or a formal "Troll" tag.

I'm stunned that Atlas was allowed back considering his long history of drama.

He's back one day and already his posts are getting archived.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=108663.0

I mean come on. The last thing this community needs is more crazy people and trolls.

EDIT: And as if to prove my point right on cue.

I'm so scared, BadBear.
Anyways, you define trolling as anything you don't like. I don't like your attitude, Mr. Troll. You treat me like trash and I won't stand under it.
Don't expect any respect from me. I've been patient with you in the past. I won't be any longer.

It's scheiße like this why he should not be allowed back.


Title: Re: Atlas and a public plea
Post by: Atlas on September 12, 2012, 05:44:42 AM
BadBear dedicates some of his posts to defaming my name and person. That to me is outright trolling. As much as I hate him having some degree of control over my happiness, his speech pains me. It has been a huge mood killer.

I will not stand under that. I will not stand under a law that makes BadBear's verbal abuse acceptable.

I would prefer to be quiet but I am compelled to do otherwise. I only wish to attack the antagonistic actions of BadBear. Nothing more.

I do not intentionally disrupt people. I do not troll. It's not my fault people do not agree with what I say or who I am. It's not my fault that some people may become emotionally off-kilter around me.

In fact, I have yet to see concrete evidence that a good majority of my posts can be considered "trolling" or disruptive. I think it's just a slur for "I don't like you."

Additionally, I would encourage you to provide evidence of me using an ad hominem as a backing to a subject-based argument. As far as I see, that is unfounded. In fact my actions lack real notability as compared to more intentional trolling done by you or others.

You citing that I was so unintelligent as to not recognize what an escrow is in a previous discussion does not lend you much credence. You, my friend, disrupted that discussion. You, yourself, have been trolling. You, yourself, created an ad hominem. So to say you are serving a greater good of preventing trolling and disruption is hypocritical to me. Trolling by you seems to be justice while all else is crime.

You have the option of showing me the intentional disruption I purportedly cause. You also have the option of continuing to lambaste my mental health and supposed lack of intelligence, which could be considered trolling by an egalitarian interpretation of the word.

As far as mods talking about banning for personal attacks. Really? Most of the threads I've read have personal attacks back and forth for pages and pages.

Personal attacks are OK when used occasionally as parts of larger posts. Someone who posts constant ad hominem attacks is probably a troll, and posts consisting mostly of ad hominem attacks are probably off-topic.

Thank you for the clarification.

Yeah I don't care about the occasional ad hom if the post makes good points or is substantial in other ways, no matter who it's about. Posting just to insult someone is a useless post/trolling and leads to more of the same.

I see one problem with Atlas posts and topic.  Very little content with almost no original idea conveyed.

Many of his post are intentionally biased, incomprehensible, with incomplete or vague ideas.  This has the effect of sparking a slew of one liners response like :

"YOU ARE WRONG!"
"WHAT ??"
"SO WHAT ?"
"Shut up, no care."

Aka. One liners,

This place is not 4chan or IRC !

@Atlas, Have a glance at these users posts and compare. Try not feeding the trolls and obviously, don't act like one.

 While this seems to work in theory, in practice, you still see the user has written a post, it's just that the post is hidden and minimized.

 It would be better if ignored users were completely removed from your viewing a thread.

Yea, it would be a nice option.

I see one problem with Atlas posts and topic.  Very little content with almost no original idea conveyed.

Many of his post are intentionally biased, incomprehensible, with incomplete or vague ideas.  This has the effect of sparking a slew of one liners response like :

"YOU ARE WRONG!"
"WHAT ??"
"SO WHAT ?"
"Shut up, no care."

Aka. One liners,

This place is not 4chan or IRC !

@Atlas, Have a glance at these users posts and compare. Try not feeding the trolls and obviously, don't act like one.

Would you rather me appeal to authority, god or religion in subjective matters? All one can do in a discussion is state their opinion and their premises for that opinion. I think you are asking for too much out of people otherwise. Do you want me to just agree?

...
Now, don't tell me trolling is a bannable offense!  ;D
Why not ? You just earned my ignore buddy.  ;D ;D ;D

And you're no better.

What about doing some research before making a topic ?

Ps : On your 911 topic, You could have taken random video from any "9/11" youtube search and you'd have most likely ended up with better content.

For fuck sake have you every heard of "Architects & Engineers For 9/11 Truth" movement ?

I'd rather your opinions were grounded in facts with research, even if they are different from mine. I'd rather you had opinions rather than just parrot shit you don't understand.

Right now you're nothing but a white noise generator that is somehow more irritating. I've got a video-card with a bad bearing that provides more use than you and is less annoying.

You're a broken record, blathering on about stuff you haven't researched, don't understand, or just parroting a youtube link. Most of your thread starters seem to be little more than a link and some drivel with misused 3-dollar words. You start threads, not for discussion, but to hear yourself talk and hope people tell you how right you are to validate your extremely ignorant and limited world view. Nobody cares about what shiny Youtube video caught your ADD riddled attention, nobody cares about your laughable Randian misinterpreted blatherings, and you're only amusing to the point where we can all point and laugh at you. You come across as pompous and a windbag, and your blinding I'm right and all the plebes are wrong attitude just makes you into more of a clown.

You're a clown who's facepaint is half-understood Randian philosophies, who's wig is nothing more than whatever new political theory makes you believe you're better than anyone else, and who's magic tricks are old Youtube videos and petty parlor tricks.

I guess what I"m saying is: Shut the hell up until you have something constructive, informative, or interesting to say.

IMO everyone on this forum has far too much of an obsession with this guy. he is annoying to you? So what, this forum is filled with dildos much worse than him. Everyone's energy here could be much better spent masturbating or shooting heroin into their balls.

I don't think that on the grounds of personal attacks, a fair mod could ban Atlas and not ban Reeses, Psy, and other "NO U, STFU you cock-sucking mongrel, I have better cocktails than you lying, jealous son of a bitch, I see you are masturbating furiously, go seek help with your mental problem" kind of users. It's bad etiquette for a moderator to punish pointless attacks on himself harder than attacks on others, so to justify a ban with this, the forum would have to ban hundreds of other users. Not that I think you shouldn't use the banhammer more. I think there are a few dozen users where it would be long justified. But that's a different topic.

Too much thread creation is an objective measure, and I agree that more than two threads started per day should not be the norm. I'm just saying that banning Atlas for too much personal attacking, derailing or trolling would be arbitrariness.

I apologize. I really do. If someone feels the need to discuss Atlas, they can do it in another thread.
