Kettle. Black.[/link] Members are berated for complaining about not being able to use new features (*cough*PadmeBra*cough*) when this demonstrates that those very few put in control of such a feature (and we know who they are) aren't even responsible enough to refrain from juvenile displays such as this. I might find it funny if I didn't have two very close friends from Vietnam who find that term just as derogatory as calling someone a sp*c or the "n" word. Oh, wait, I'm not a childish insensitive jerk. Instead I'm pretty damned offended that something like this was allowed to happen, and that the person responsible decided to use a derogatory term instead of something more general, or even decided to do it at all. For shame. Makes you wonder who else might be next. And no, before you ask or accuse, I was not put up to this. It was simply pointed out to me, and I thought it was rather hypocritical in light of the recent "Who me?" situation that has devloped among the mods these past few days. Oh, and "Hello" to my friend Internet Drama. <<EDIT: OK, so everyone seems to have big issues with me locking this. I have no problem with this subject being discussed. It's an issue, OK, I understand that. But I locked this thread because it was being taken off track with off-color commentary. If you want to discuss the titles, then DISCUSS the titles....and start a new thread to do so.>> --------------------------------------------- Wattowatta Registered: Jan 00 Date Posted: 5:47pm Subject: RE: OFFENSIVE MISUSE of title ability by the Administration - Date Edited: 5:49pm (1 edits total) Edited By: Wattowatta Would this be a use of "Community-building Stupidity" by the administration? Come, children, let's see how they try to pull their asses out of this sling! Honestly, this is simply incredible. First, an administrator would have the gumption to grant a member a custom title which should have only be granted to mod staff-a blatant breach of established forum policy-and second, would use that title to put on a derogatory slur for childish amusement-a blatant breach of human decency. Regardless of what dp has done in the past, there is absolutely no justification for this action. It would serve the Mod Squad well to give a complete and full explanation to the populace as to why this incident occured, and-if it weren't too much of a blow to the Squad's pride-to issue an apology toward those afflicted. Apology Posted. DRAMA over.
