    I have some questions and comments about pinball podcasts/videos. Can we discuss that topic. I don’t understand, My thread was closed by pinside.

    #2 7 months ago

    I donate to pinside and have paid them for all my pinside sale ads. I’ve never been moderated in my entire time here and been a loyal supporter. Is this topic forbidden?

    Read Robin's post at the end of your other thread.

    You are not allowed to mention the name of K-mans podcast, which is difficult in a podcast thread since he won the TWIPY last year.

    I never have mentioned that name

    Doesn’t explain anything . I don’t understand why they would delete me asking a question.

    I agree it's dumb. It's the Streisand effect in full force

    You are now officially a pinsider. All that time pre-mod was just conditioning. Welcome.

    I wasn't talking about you specifically and meant pinside as a whole.

    I can only speculate that mods were deleting posts instead of issuing moderations and eventually just deleted the thread. I have seen threads resurrected so maybe Robin will bring them back.

    If this really boils down to not even being able to mention the name "Kaneda", it really should be posted in the community rules or at least explain this. Luckily I only pop in on the forums fairly infrequently, because this place can be pretty ridiculous.

    HEAD KNIGHT: Don't say that word.

    ARTHUR: What word?

    HEAD KNIGHT: I cannot tell, suffice to say is one of the words the Knights of Ni cannot hear.

    ARTHUR: How can we not say the word if you don't tell us what it is?

    KNIGHTS: Aaaaugh! Aaaugh!

    Robin asked you to bear with him for a minute. Maybe try that?

    That’s cool, but why close an entire thread that just asked if you enjoy podcasts??

    LOL for a minute I thought thread two had been unlooked

    You were asked to bear with him while it's being investigated. Do that. If you still have questions when he is finished open a moderator feedback thread and discuss it with the people that took the action(s) you're questioning.

    Can't be.

    There was an entire thread dedicated to that chap at the Texas pinball festival started by one of the head moderators himself last year. Including pictures of him with his arms around Robin.

    Simply Google ...”his name” banned from pinside and you will figure it out really fast.

    I have not been moderated. I have said nothing controversial, perhaps others did??

    More like.. it boils down to not giving a platform to individuals who have behaved as pure cancers in our hobby, including threatening and wishing harm on people.. including the owners of the site. Anyone who can listen to what Chris openly admitted he did, and think the repercussions are not justified need to really re-evaluate their priorities. If you don't know what he did, go listen to his podcasts where he comes clean on the threats and hate he spewed. And then put yourself in the place of those targeted, and rethink your position. Doesn't matter what you say afterwards, or what you've done elsewhere. There should be consequences for such abhorrent behavior because it was done with the thought that you could just 'take stuff back' so why cares about boundaries.

    and besides... the guy is a tool.

    You were already aware of the other thread that went “missing”. You were discussing it with the guys from SDTM on Facebook. Not very helpful to keep opening new threads here.

    Robin asked for some time to figure things out. So stop speculating guys. You can also post your thoughts thru moderators feedback as already suggested earlier.

    #24 7 months ago

    I just had a customer tell my "you're not the same guy!". I was reading this forum at the time.

    #25 7 months ago

    There are other pinball forums, none of them anywhere near as good as this one, and most are moderated even more closely.

    Not trying to stir up trouble. Just a legitimate question. I will not post further, I don’t want to cause any drama

    This one was way better before that dude and his chick came on here complaining about 3 or 4 years ago.

    #28 7 months ago

    Looks like your thread is back up.

    Edit: Hmmm...maybe that's a different one.

    #30 7 months ago

    Perhaps this thread should now be deleted?

    People made jokes about saying the K-man 3 times, thinking it was a joke and then telling us to put on our big pants and just say his name. Well, this is what happens when you say his name 3 times.

    If you aren't supposed to mention that name referenced above in quotes, it seems silly that the form for posting in the forums is not coded to auto-replace said banned name with some other word like meatball, or taco, or controversialbutoftenaccuratepodcaster, something to make this less of an issue automagically.
