Oh look

A serial troll finally got muted, and you'd think the sky was falling.

Boo freakin' hoo.

Yeah, sometimes you gotta put a kid in the corner to think about what he did.  Maybe he'll learn, probably, hopefully.  I think most of us grow up learning that It doesn't hurt to try to connect with others in positive way instead of a negative one.

Well, one can always hope. Sadly, people who take out their self-loathing on others tend to require quite a lot of effort before they realize how abhorrent their behavior is.

I think he's an ass, personally, but the whole situation is weird to me. Why not just ban him outright? Honestly, a lot of this drama could've been avoided if the mods just punted him. Muting someone and letting them use the site still seems like such a half measure to me.
bencoon

Good question. His historical behavior would certainly justify it. However, we've always had a certain aversion to outright removing accounts, sometimes to our detriment.
Gobby

That should probably be amended. I honestly can't think of a reason that a person should be muted rather than banned. Going from personal impressions, it makes it seem like you're making an example of the person rather than removing them. Being pilloried vs. exiled. They're both punishments, but one is definitely more of a spectacle.

I agree. There have been cases where somebody has recognized they were going overboard and behaved afterwards, but they are edge cases.

Does IB have a forum or something? Is everyone on Twitter? I have no idea where all this drama springs from until it shows up as journal notices.

Furries are notorious gossips, and I personally like to be kept abreast of goings-on.

This whole ordeal just been funny to me, especially the brown nosers who cannot comprehend this happened to many others before. I'm just waiting and seeing how long it gonna take before it officially dies. Prediction: Never

It's just routine housekeeping. Trolls get booted all the time, borderline cases reviewed and acted upon when needed. This case stopped being borderline.

Wait is this still about Pierce? Or did Roarey get muted now too? God I hope it's the latter
bencoon

So far as I know, Roarey is still able to comment.

Must be about someone I've already blocked/banned, 'cause I pretty much only hear about this stuff second/third-hand. Probably better that way.
bencoon

Pretty much.

I need to learn where to find he gossip XD I'm so out of the loop since I'm not on as often!

The thing with furry gossip is, it's rarely anywhere near as interesting as the drama would make it seem.

It's probably a much better use of your time going for a walk and sitting in a nice pub with a drink and a book. Let other people work themselves up about trivial shit.

In the words of a man: "Fuck it, Dude. Let's go bowling."

Pretty much. Furry gossip is the cheetos of conversation. It can be tasty, but ultimately there's way better things to consume.
SquikBat

Gemme them cheetos if you're not going to eat them :V

Too late, already ate 'em all. :9

Ffffffff.....ine. I'll just eat skittles while waiting for trick or treat to start.

XD Sometimes you just want to watch a drama with a bucket of popcorn handy, am I right? In all seriousness, it was mostly a joke and I guess I did become a little nosy after some vague posts and my name dropped at random in a comment. However, I did mean it when I said I was out of the loop. Haha! It was good for a little chuckle finding out the basics of the situation. Though, yeah, I have better things to do.

What happened? Can someone fill me in?
bencoon
5 years, 3 months ago
Somebody with a history of being unpleasant was made to limit his unpleasantness. Apparently, some people think it is their right to visit your home and smear feces all over the walls.

Can I get a bit more detail?
bencoon

There really isn't much more to it. A handful of people each with an admin action history a mile long (And a good number of them on their own final warnings) seem to feel that it is their right to act with impunity and rushed to his defense.

Man InkBunny needs an /r/Drama.

Better than the other day when a serial troll was claiming on Inkbunny to be banned and generally oppressed and persecuted on Inkbunny.  It was not very convincing.

Which troll are you talking about?  
bencoon
5 years, 3 months ago
Probably the same one; they come and they go and are pretty interchangeable when you get right to it.. This one's white knights are slightly more tenacious than usual, but they'll get distracted by the next shiny thing soon enough.

Howdy, 'coonbutt.  Gonna do a bit of a wall o' text and rant a little on here.

I'm of multiple sides on all of this, on the one hand, if someone wants to post something, art, story, journal, and someone takes offense to it and posts comments on it, well, they get what they deserve if said person replies, on the other hand, leaving nasty replies on someone else's posts is silly, if you don't like it, don't look at it.

_Destructive_ criticisms never helped any artist, and simply tends to galvanize someone's opinion, and cries of 'offensive to me' are, for the most part, on the person being offended if they're the one looking, instead of having it forced on them, example being looking through someone's art portfolio after having a warning about the content, vs having to see it spray-painted all over downtown.

Finally, we come down to this; Inkbunny is not a _public_ forum, it is not provided by society at large, it is run by a few people who give of their time and money and sanity to operate and police this art site.  We all agree to follow the rules when we come here, and if you break the rules, well, all you have to blame is yourself.  Yes, each of the administrators of the site have their own personal biases, and sometimes things get out of hand, but in the end we're all people, we all make mistakes, especially in emotionally charged situations.

We're all furries here, we're a huge and diverse group of people, looked down on by most of the other fandoms and often by the general public(when they think of us at all), the only amazing part is that the levels of drama and trolling we do to each other is the worst we've really seen.  We're all furries, togetherness through diversity, I love you all, and hope you all can try and do the same with each other, even during disagreements.

We're all real people, this isn't just text on a screen, this isn't written by an AI for your amusement, each and every person you interact with online is someone else, with a life that's often as weird and complex as your own.

The serial troll is still active, I have a very good idea who you are talking about. I really like his art but the trolling crap was way too much, I just now blocked him from my feed earlier this week.
