Here is how it should have happened:
-Amirite launches a media release stating what happened.
-ASDF1234/AssCakes should have got ONE post of the day with a note that this is in memory.
-The moderators mourn in private with each other in stead of making a public display, which is desecrates the deceased.
-The account is memorialized with a notice of death
THAT IS ALL
me, why me?
I am saying that this would avoid the situation.
That actually would have made sense.
We recently lost a member of the moderating staff. So to honor her, we put her posts through to the home page. People are throwing a shit storm.
I can't believe how inconsiderate people are being about the whole situation.
it's supposed to honor her memory. You're being disrespectful.
We're not trying to piss people off. We're trying to honor our good friend who many of us loved with all our hearts. Please stop being inconsiderate.
(Your+name+(optional)): I can't believe you just said that. How can you be so fucking disrespectful? You make me sick.
(Your+name+(optional)): Are you kidding me right now?
out of here
(Your+name+(optional)): Did you ever met her? Did you know everything going on in her life, or even the half of it? Before you start to talk shit about people, maybe you should know what happened.
No, they are being assholes because every post that criticizes the mods in any way is being deleted. It's a pathetic abuse of a very small power. This site lost 1000s of cool points today.
I've seen posts criticizing mods and Anthony before that don't get deleted. It's obviously a bad time to criticize mods. Learn the context of situations.
Then leave. We clearly don't want you here.
let's just leave this site... there are other places on the internet.
Oh, I get it; it's just that the rest of us didn't realize this whole site is the mod's personal mourning area, and we're not allowed to be annoyed by that. Got it.
If you aren't going to be respectful, then you should leave this site, because we don't need assholes like you.
Disrespecting someone who is deceased is not an "opinion."
ASKING, is not disrespectful. Saying the Mods aren't allowed to mourn, and posting things like "ASSCAKE SUCKS" IS disrespectful.
Sound plan, Anon #436717. It definitely would have avoided all this.
I just hope all this negative reaction to their hijacking the whole site and running roughshod over what it's supposed to be gets through somewhere. This isn't about a dead chick, or respect, or any of that shit- this is about abusing your position for personal reasons, how incredibly pathetic it is, and how it ruins sites.
Ohh, I forgot, that's how youy run a successful website- by insulting and alienating it's users. Sound strategy. I can see a lot of thought goes into picking mods.
@dioxyde420: that's exactly it; if this was my website, every mod on duty right now would lose their delete powers after this.
you're the only asshole I see here.
I actually see a lot more, they all hang out in chat
NOBODY RESPECTS ANYTHING ON THIS SITE ANY OTHER DAY!! People are hateful, mean, judgemental, and rude... and it all goes by without a peep until it's personal to the mods. THAT'S what is pissing people off. Nothing is sacred until it huwts your wittle feewings and then it's the end of the fucking world. Grow up, go share your pain in a personal place instead of jacking a public site and beating everything it is into the ground.
Ty, dioxyde420. I mean, all someone had to do was comment if they disagreed, call me a cunt or whatever, but oh nooo we can't even leave stuff the almighty mods disagree with up for discussion. And knowing she's a suicide just makes me care less; that's a coward's way out.
Did you know why she did it? I doubt it.
she did not have a good life, it was tough. she held on for as long as she could.
she was my heart outside my body.
