So, do we need a synopsis of todays debate?

There is a call for ceasing to support "trolling" certain members by "alt" accounts.

There was an answer by one member calling on those who support said trolling to remove their support.




I'm to assume this is from the bashing thread, I don't read it much and won't comb through it and read.

It should stop. I agree.


There was an inference that members of FT Forums, that are also members of Discord, used the Discord channel to subvert FT business in the way of a "group buy" being promoted by Discord members, however, there was no evidence forthcoming.

There was an accounting of the true intent and purpose for the opening of a Discord Channel to invited members of FT Forums, and an accounting for the perception that Discord was used to be disruptive of FT Forums.



From what I recall, the channel was simply to create a room away from fasttechs moderation, since the original creators were banned for certain reasons I completely agree with. I don't believe it was to disrupt FT sales, but 1 rouge member on discord did attack, remember all the scat porn and other spambots that went nuts for the short period? He spilled the beans on who he was mid spam spree but I cannot remember.


There were statements that place blame for the current strife in evidence on FT Forums, only upon dual members of both sites and that paint all dual members with the same brush.



There will always be people anywhere that disagree with some being extreme and create issue. I can say I understand why some people would choose here or there to chat because it may reduce drama to a degree.

There was but one member that came forward with an acknowledgement of culpability and acceptance of responsibility.



Please tell me it was scat man...

If I missed anything of note due to the debate being expunged and a poor memory, please fill in the gap....



I would if I could, but my memory is poor and I haven't read alot of the issues just pointed out.

I would clarify that. The channel was opened for two reasons:

1)To escape the scat spam and, 2) to provide a refuge from the fighting. For both, there was no moderation.

The creation of the channel was something I requested of a former member with greater savvy of the process than I. That former member had, indeed, been banned from FT for doxxing.

I'm probably wrong but I thought the discord channel was made well before the scat, maybe a year.

My opinion is that without the "kudo" feature it will encourage people to weigh in, in their own words, rather than try to weight a statement or idea coming from their "faction". So it neutralizes potential abuse of the feature.Edit; either way, I will not be using it. I would wish there were a way to prevent, or hide any kudo given to me.


You misunderstand my comment.

Break kudos in THIS thread.

Speaking our minds here.

I am not a forum lawyer gathering support.

I am a person tired of long term grudge hurting our community.

Well, perhaps I should have written the "scat spammer". It is possible that he had not turned to scat yet. As I recall there was pretty intense spamming though and that was becoming an issue for many as it seemed FT was powerless to eliminate it. Remember, this was years ago and, I am going on an aging memory.

Sorry eric, I was only stating my opinion and though it may have seemed in response to you, it was not. I will admit to being confused by your comment, though. Thanks for the clarification.
