Coyote booted from Coffee House
Message 51

Bit much, innit? I didn't think EvC was a place that stifled dissenting views...

Coyote Barred From Coffee House?
I think the moderators should confine themselves to punishing actual infractions of the forum rules and leave the meting out of poetic justice to Allah.

Re: Coyote Barred From Coffee House?
Unbelievable. Can we have this reversed immediately, and then perhaps we can just pretend that EvC never actually performed this disgraceful act.

Re: Coyote Barred From Coffee House?
I don't see it. What the hell did Coyote do?

No disrespect or personal attacks on others. No misrepresentation. No abusive language. And quite "on-topic" given the circumstance of his view. No forum violations.

What is this all about? Something personal?

Re: Coyote Barred From Coffee House?
Maybe it would be a good idea if individual admins only had the right to warn or admonish people, and that sanctions like restriction and banishment and the like had to be decided by at least two consenting admins. That way if a grumpy old clown had a bad day, it wouldn't lead to undesirable results like this.

Maybe the Moose thought of it like this?
Since Coyote complains that we should keep this site to only discuss creation and evolution, he shouldn't post in the coffee house section, the only section in the forum not about creation and evolution.

Still, since he is one of the few dissenting views regarding "lefties" (who are annoying, even if they 'probably aren't the same "lefties" he is talking about, he would probably call them communists), I don't see why he should be restricted, just that he is wrong about the nature of the coffee house forums.

Good point. Perhaps the clown has some sense of humor after all. But he could have just told Coyote, instead of showing him the door.

Yes, that admin Adminnemooseus action did seem a bit excessive.

Re: Coyote booted from Coffee House
Ah, but it is rutting season and no one knows what a moose will do during rutting season.

Anyone so limited that they can only spell a word one way is severely handicapped!

We do not know if this is correct or not. If this is the reason then it is an awfully weak one and should be rejected.

Some kind of explanation should have accompanied the suspension. Without some explanation from Moose, however, we have no idea why this action was taken. This is disturbing.

Oh come on, jar. They rut. That's why we call it "rutting" season, remember? Duh.

Quite. Hence the usage of the word "Maybe".

If this is the reason then it is an awfully weak one and should be rejected.

Agreed.

Some kind of explanation should have accompanied the suspension. Without some explanation from Moose, however, we have no idea why this action was taken. This is disturbing.

Well, he did post this in Message 51 in the Members with restricted posting privileges thread:

Adminnemooseus writes:

Coyote, at "Coffee House" topic "Racist?" - From messages 382, 385, and 388.

(And did anyone realize that this website is for creation/evolution debates, not politics? Want to stick to those subjects?)

And why can't we keep this site limited to the creation/evolution issues? Why do leftists/socialists keep trying to push their flawed agenda in places it wasn't designed for?

But then we could always stick to creation/evolution here. That would be nice too, eh?

Adminnemooseus

From which I gleaned my "explanation". But yes, he should explain more clearly.

Edited by Huntard, : Word changed after a "mysterious benefactor" pointed out a rather elementary mistake on my part.

It's typical Moose - ham-handed and solves a "problem" that wasn't one.

Been this way for years, though. Nobody's going to do anything about it. He's a menace, always has been, but people will always cheer on a bully.

Wow... does this sound like a non-biased Admin??? Sound like an emotional response to me. Just saying.... If C had of broke a rule then it would be different. I have seen a lot worse things happen in the coffee house with no Admin response at all.
