*cough* thir site addy has been posted to the most despicable people i could find on the net ubblol if they where TRUE hippies............... in no way would they be giviing jo a hard time ubblol



i was banned solely because i was a registered member of a site that a few tossers decided to invade ukhippy ubblol



if the mods on HoP where even 1/4 as bad i would have been banned a long time ago. but thank farrrk HoP mods are so great and not in the view of banning people solely for having an oppion of their own!!1





troll away i say...............









 Written by: Ravehead

no problems LTC i can see where you are coming from, to get things in context i mearly suggested that if people did register i would be amazed if they lasted too long without being bloked from certain posts or banned out right.



i have nothing against them (except they banned me for no good proovable reason). they seem VERY touchey and child like as they spit the dummy out of the pram if anything is not as they want it.







Hmmmmm..... don't those 2 post contradict each other a bit? You say in the second quote you have nothing against them, but in the first quote it appears that you have posted their site address on, as you put it "*cough* thir site addy has been posted to the most despicable people i could find on the net ." and then you proceed to encourage people to "troll away i say...............". I think those actions would imply you do have something against them and you are trying to encourage other people to have a 'problem' with them too.



If you don't value these peoples opinions why do you care if they have banned you or not? Why do you feel the need to encourage other people to dislike them and their site.



So they have a different way of running their forum than HoP does... so what? It's their forum and they are free to run it anyway they please. Don't you think to judge a whole group of people just because of the way their forum admin tried to stop a raid from another forum (that appeared to them be out to cause trouble) is much more childish than their admin putting a few people on a form on probation.



Do you think when nuskoolbreaks.co.uk invaded hop the admin here weren't keeping an eye on them? Of course they were, that's their job, to keep their forum running smoothly with as little trouble as possible. They may have done it in a different manner than ukhippy, but as I say, it's up to the people who run the forums to decide how they run it.



Try standing in the other mans shoes for a bit. If it was the other way round and a thread dissing HoP had appeared on ukhippy and a whole bunch of their members had come over here, registered and started posting on here, some with a bit of an agender and attitude (and be honest, some people from here did do that) wouldn't it rub a few backs up the wrong way here and get a bit of an arsey response from some.



I've had no trouble on ukhippy. I haven't agreed with everyones views over there, but I don't agree with everyones views on HoP either. If you don't like their forum, don't visit it. If you don't like the way they run their forum, don't visit there. The same goes for HoP. I've seen Mods on HoP say abide by the way HoP is run or don't visit here... fair enough.



Ravehead, you say you've been banned for no reason other than "i was a registered member of a site that a few tossers decided to invade ukhippy". Did you click a link from that forum to ukhippy? Did you then join straight from clicking that link? Did that forum not in your own words have "a few tossers" that "decided to invade ukhippy". Can you see how they may have assumed you were one of those "tossers" that was out to cause trouble for them.... oh and look at this thread...wouldn't this thread and the fact you confess to posting their addy on the site of "most despicable people i could find on the net" reinforce their first impressions of you, whether that first impression was correct or incorrect at the time of them making it.



I say live and let live. Ukhippy is not out there trying to promote evilness, violence, trouble etc. They may be different from HoP, but that doesn't make them all "fascists" or a "dictatorship" or "middle class wanna be hippies" or "nazi" or "tossers" or any of the other names that have been thrown at them, it just means they do things differently over there than is done here on HoP. Viva la difference!

I've been haunting their boards since this thread started, and I've got to say their discussions are pretty interesting.If I were looking for another board, I seriously consider these guys.

It may be possible to view Mr. Atomik as a tyrant, but one thing's clear, he doesn't suffer fools.

1. Ravehead has already made a serious attempt to get UK Hippy shut down by trying to instigate a troll attack from another forum.







i beg to differ on this point, i can even pull up EVERY post i made on this "other" site. the ONLY time i mentioned that i didn't care what people did was after the fact i was banned for life, and the reason i was banned was because i used the link that was posted on said site.



to tell you the truth i'm not bothered about it, it was only a matter of time before i posted something that offended someone wink unintentionaly ubbangel





to be honest looking back on it all it was very restrictive at how much stuff you cant post and things you cant say.



i don't hold a grudge.................thats just a waste of my time wink

That's a horrendous load of [censored] and you know it! You made abusive posts about another member, normally I would have just given you a temp ban but as you were abusive about me I just changed your signature ad decided to be playful about the whole thing. You then started having a go when you already knew you were on thin ice and got yourself a temp ban. Then you signed up with an alias trying to be clever so that profile was changed so that people knew who you were. If you want to make yourself out to be a martyr make sure you haven't brought it all on yourself first.

No posts were ever made in your name other than the ones you posted yourself.

So why didnt you?

A mods job is to matain order of the board.
Not to piss around with people settings just because they've annoyed you.

You seem no better than the person who apprently broke board rules in the first place.

If that happend everytime a mod was annoyed here by a member the whole place would be in chaos!

I didn't because I've met Elliott in real life and thought the least disruptive way to deal with it would be humour. If it happened in every situation then yes, it would be chaos but it's happened once so I don't really see what your point is there.

To say I'm 'just as bad' for being lenient is a bit of a stretch, I'm sure Elliott would have preferred to have a joke than get banned, it's just a shame that his follow up actions led to a ban instead of this being dealt with in a light hearted way. Frankly it's been blown out of all proportion, the only reason I'm posting here is that I don't much like people telling lies about me and feel I should have the ability to stand up for myself.

I'll openly confess to having made mistakes as a mod before, I'm only human after all, this wasn't a mistake though unless you call being too lenient a mistake.

If you haden't done anything, what would have happend? I'd be willing to bet that nothing would have happend, that is to say, the boards would have copped with it and within a day or two everything would be fine.

Posted:I vote for this thread being removed. It seems that whenever someone has a problem on ukhippy, this is where it gets discussed.

It's good that things can get discussed here, because it's not moderated by UKhippy, which cuts out any chance of there being moderator censorship, but really, is there a need? I for one don't give a damn about what goes on over there. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

And the award goes to Ravehead for having the highest number of non-PG and offensive posts... umm rolleyes
