What's worse than a moderator?

How about someone who comes into this forum once a month and selectively cleans house?

Jep Branner just did one of his famous half-assed "I'm the Super Administrator" cleanups of the website tonite. Afterwards, he sent me a lame message stating he "does what he can do."

Right or wrong, agree or disagree, at least the people who post here regularly make the effort to make something of this site.

I sent branner the following message:

"No one respects you or this site. Your half assed attempts only irritate people. That's why there's almost no one here.

IBdaMann's not the problem.
Into the Night's not the problem.
Tim the plumber's not the problem.
I'm not the problem.

You're the problem.

Just stay away and let us do what we need to do."


Personally, I'd rather post with a bunch of denialist trolls than have an idiot moderator like branner haphazardly waving his wand whenever the mood strikes him because "it's the best that he can do."

Jep, if you can't be consistent, then don't bother.

Thoughts?

Why do you speak for the rest of us? I like this site.

Personally, I'd rather post with a bunch of denialist trolls than have an idiot moderator like branner haphazardly waving his wand whenever the mood strikes him because "it's the best that he can do."

So you would rather have spam take over discussions? Have endless drooling babies/dogs/people images? Or are you angry because he removed the repetitive self-promotion from your posts?

You have your own fucking forum, stop acting like an angry teenager, you're a grown man.

Copy of PM to Banner;

Hi Banner,

I just got this from a mad idiot;


Thought you might appreciate this. I just sent this to branner:

No one respects you or this site. Your half assed attempts only irritate people. That's why there's almost no one here.

IBdaMann's not the problem.
Into the Night's not the problem.
Tim the plumber's not the problem.
I'm not the problem.

You're the problem.

Just stay away and let us do what we need to do.




Anybody who is unable to cope with their ideas being held up to scrutiny should not be posting on any sort of public forum.

This subject area is extremely serrious. Mad prats should be shown to be so.

Thank you for this forum where the process of democracy and science can be hammered out.

Cheers Tim

This is pretty much what you say he does...

He cleaned up the spam, then he left the community to continue.

Wamizombies and Marxists have this overriding belief that they somehow speak for countless unnamed others. It only gets them into trouble and it completely invalidates their arguments.

No one takes this website, your drivel (as you like to say), or IBdaMann, or Into the Night, seriously.

Ever notice how dead it is here?

Check the numbers. branner has been here exactly 25 times since he opened this site in 2009. That means he comes here on average about once every 3 months to "moderate." That's not moderation - that's lazy!

@everyone - WOW! And I thought this site was dead.

Check out the daily posts on branners other great climate debate website:

http://www.klimadebat.dk/forum/alle_indlaeg.php

There are at least as many daily posts, sometimes more, here on this dead site as on that one.

Poor branner.

This site isn't dead. Your own little playroom corners are, which is why you keep coming back here. Got a little lonely over there did it?

So he's leaving us to self moderate. He's trusting us to not spam up the place, except he still needs to visit periodically to clean up after those who cannot keep from spamming.

So, I just removed more than 100 posts again (posted in less than 48 hours). It's a waste of everybody's time to post spam, personal attacks and endless replies to these kind of things. IT WILL JUST BE REMOVED. If you think someone is spamming, then just ignore it, and wait until it is cleaned up. The site is monitored regularly (this can't be meassured in the number of posts by me).

If you don't like the way this site is managed, you are always welcome to contact me with ideas, and you are of course always welcome to leave the site!

Climate-Debate.com or Klimadebat.dk are in no way dead sites. We have a lot of climate discussions going on - just need to get rid of all the noise.

I wish you all a good and calm weekend!

Well, I see the trolls have been bombarding you with their "Help us branner!" messages.

branner wrote: Climate-Debate.com or Klimadebat.dk are in no way dead sites.

Let's see, this site has been around since 2009 - about 2200 days - with a total of about 4800 posts. Gee, that's an average of a little over 2 posts per day. Sounds pretty dead to me!

branner wrote:We have a lot of climate discussions going on - just need to get rid of all the noise.

No, you have a lot of trolls spreading deceptive and misleading information, which seems to be what you want.

Given you have averaged about one post every three months since this website opened (do the math), you are hardly what anyone on the internet considers a qualified or good moderator. If you want to fix that, PM me.

Of course, branner seems to prefer raw post counts to post content, so don't expect the denialist trolls to disappear from here any time soon.

So this is a dead site, with a broken moderator, that's mostly filled with false information about climate science.

Sounds more like Climate-Deadbate.com to me.

Trafn, please. You can contribute with your opinion or your stance on this, I enjoy reading what everyone writes, but you keep focusing on the "trolls" as you call them and that'll do you no good.

@Totototo - you're right. It's just hard to take this site seriously when 95% of what's posted here is outdated and wrong. Given how serious this situation really is, it's sad to see such a bullshit website, even if it is dead.

To4, please ask him why he is so intent on posting on a site he despises, that he thinks is "dead," that has posters he despises and that is run by an administrator he despises.

I'd be interested to know the answer.

Vikings: Spam spam spam spam...
Trafn: ...spam spam spam egg and spam; spam spam spam spam spam spam baked beans spam spam spam...
Vikings: Spam! Lovely spam! Lovely spam!
Trafn: ...or Lobster Thermidor a Crevette with a mornay sauce served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top and spam.
brannon: Have you got anything without spam?
Trafn: Well, there's spam egg sausage and spam, that's not got much spam in it.
Brannon: I don't want ANY spam!
trafn: What about egg bacon spam and sausage?
Brannon: THAT'S got spam in it!
Man: Hasn't got as much spam in it as spam egg sausage and spam, has it?
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam... (Crescendo through next few lines...)
Brannon: Could you do the egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam then?
Trafn: Urgghh!
Brannon: What do you mean 'Urgghh'? I don't like spam!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
brannon: Shut up!
Vikings: Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!
Trafn: Shut up! (Vikings stop) Bloody Vikings! You can't have egg bacon spam and sausage without the spam.
Brannon: I don't like spam!
Vikings: Spam spam spam spam. Lovely spam! Wonderful spam!

Thank you for informing us.

I think it is sad to loose a user that way.
I hope we can fit him back in someday somehow when things become more like water under the bridge.

Do not worry. He is likely to return under an alias. Let's learn from the past and recognize the problem the moment it rears its ugly head (instead of forever defending it).
