Oh, that’s not my fault - it’s what I’m going to start doing everytime you abuse the moderation features of the forum and hide my posts. I’m just gonna go back through and repost every single post, and then you can flag them again, and I will post them again, and you can flag them again, and I’ll post them again, and we’ll just keep doing since there don’t appear to be any official CCP moderators empowered to do anything on the forum.
So, it’s not true that my posts were flagged because I posted the same thing three times, but it is true that I posted the same thing three times because my posts were flagged.
Or you guys could be mature adults and agree to only flag posts when its actual spam, or actually offensive content.
It’s extremely rare for me to flag any post on these forums, and I’ve only ever done so when I’ve genuinely thought a post has been spam or OOC trolling, of an IC thread in the IGS.
I do accept though, that sometimes, something I may have interpeted as OOC trolling may not have been, but as I say. It’s a rare thing for me to flag a post.
I actually agree with you that the current system is open to abuse, and yes there are likely to be people out there who do take advantage of that. I actually like some of the suggested ideas in this thread, too.
That said, I’m not sure intentionally repeating posts again and again that have been flagged is the reaction of a mature adult either, though.
For the record I also feel that auto-hides are problematic.
Moreover, the message you get when your post is auto-hidden (happened to me for the for the first time ever just, so pot-kettle-black much?), lacks information on what to do if you disagree.
It seems to be that the case is that autohidden things do get looked by a moderator and they are hidden only until a mod gets to it? If this is the case, it’s still annoying but at least there is some control. I feel the auto-hide automated message would benefit from clearly explaining this tho.
(I don’t think purposefully spamming stuff to go around it is very mature, either. Nor do I think it works in the long run; will likely just get mods annoyed at you for creating more work.)
Making noise to protest against ■■■■■■■■ is a smart thing to do when acting calmly does not achieve anything. She’s perfectly right. There’s no connection to maturity, or lack of it, at all. People too often mistake maturity with appearing reasonable and calm, but immature people can pretend to be reasonable and calm, while on the inside they’re not.
Case in Point: Balos, Dracvlad, Naarian, Anderson.
Maturity is a point in personal development reached when one is able to rationalise his feelings before mindlessly acting on them. Most people have that part backwards. What the princess does isn’t immature, it’s smart.
That it is a game is irrelevant.
Plenty of scientific papers have been written about EVE and its people.
CCP literally governs a literal society,
with the single best simulation of a functional market on the planet.
As we all are members of this society,
the princess’ form of protest is civil disobedience.
If you have any actual arguments,
not “no” and “it’s a game”, then please feel encouraged to share them,
though I recommend you first spend a few months educating yourself on the matter.
