Abuse of Authority by Sleepery Jeem Please Read.

Post by sleepery jeem » Mon Jun 11, 2018 5:45 pm

Ok :| ...first of all I should point out that I have reported myself to ImagineForumAdmin for my actions, so this post may be a complete moot point but here goes.


Last Friday I posted news on the release of Twin Mirror...

The reply I received from Blakey was rather offensive…

How in the hell is this related to LiS Jeem?

Make a new thread for new game announcements you lazy cunt, I’ve saved you the trouble this time.

I gave my standard reply...

:| because LIS was enjoyed by a few of you I put this here to draw attention to it (mission accomplished) as it was from the same developer, otherwise it would have been concined to Game Titbits oblivion.

Other than that I have no interest in the game and see no point on posting further on it (same as Hitman 2).

I find the C word unacceptable and nether use it or suffer it used and given the continuing animosity that exists between us I doubt it was used in jest.

I altered his post replacing both it and lazy with xxxx xxxx, mulling this over since I realise this was a misuse of my authority as moderator and have since turned it back.

I have also added him as a Foe so will no longer have to read his posts (this may unfortunately lead to duplication of news etc.being printed on occasion) and will be removing myself from the PS4 community he runs as I no longer wish to interact with him.

For now I will continue on till I hear otherwise.

So in summery I misused my authority and will no longer provide Mod services to a forum member.

Assuming ImagineForumAdmin allows me to remain a Moderator I will only do so with the approval of yourselves.

I am a firm believer in free speech so in retrospect I messed up and think i should stand and be judged for my actions.


Thank you for you time.

I've always been against swearing tbh, I did try to kerb it but was laughed at.
Dont really need it, there's plenty of other words to use and it mostly comes across as insulting.
Thats fine if you're talking to randoms but nit members of a community such as ours (dwindling though it may be)
I shouldn't worry tho' Jeem, the admin do not actually exist, a bit like God - you're told he's there but you never see him

Yeah, but I feel its more important that the members have their say to, we answer to them more than the site owners.

For the record I thought Blakey's post was inappropriate and I didn't even see the uncensored version until now. But I didn't say anything because I didn't want to derail the thread.

I don't know what's going on with you two and it's not my place to judge either way but considering how few of us are left here I don't think making such a big deal about this helps anyone. I mean if we start applying the rules as they're written maf would probably get himself kicked three times per day for spamming. I think we're here at a point were you should only mod users when they're doing some extremely questionable stuff. Blakey was an ass when he wrote that post, whether editing his post was the right or wrong thing, I don't know. I just think we should all get along (or try to) because who knows for how long we'll have until someone flips the switch for this forum.

I don't like the idea of moderators using their powers to force their own arbitrary morals upon others. Censorship is bad. However, since you changed the post back I don't have any problem with you continuing to act as a moderator.

Lets be fair here due to lack of Admin intervention, its very easy to think of this as our own community.

However It is actually a still bigger than us, and represents not Just the magazine but also the Publishers, we are lucky with what we get away with here, however I would Imagine The acceptable use policy pretty much dictates that the Post should have been deleted.
So I would say Jeem censoring it was to be fair quite fair.

Not sure whether Blakeys post was meant to come over as offensively as it seemed, but looking at it based on these posts seems a bit harsh, but might just be the Joys of interpreting incorrectly.

Jeem dont be hard on yourself you do a good job, and hope this doesn't all get blown out of proportion, While again I champion free speech, I also champion peoples right to view a forum without being offended or triggered by inappropriate language.
It didn't really seem add anything to the context of the point being made.

Either way, hope this is resolved quickly, last thing this place needs is a spotlight thrown on it.

Intonation of the word in question. Me calling Blakey a cunt is fine, since I know him quite well and talk to him several times a week. Slagging friends off is a perk you earn, when you start getting jolly abuse from me it's like you've reached the inner circle.

Calling, Say Bilge Rat a cunt, that's kind of a shitty thing to do, because I don't really know him. Even if I'm trying to be friendly with it, there has to be a bond there before you start throwing it about. I need to level up my shit with Bilge before I start referring to him as genitalia.

You're all free to call me a cunt anytime you want. I'm either close to the people that do it so they can get away with it, or I don't care about the rest, water off a ducks back. For some that's not the case. That's fine. You sort of know what you're getting into when you commune with certain people. Respect those boundaries, but also don't tread on that person being that person.

That's a good point actually Sly.
I mean, I'm sure most of us get this in our workplace with regularity, I know I do :lol:
Twat, Wanker, Cuntface..... But again, we all know each other, so using these words with people you don't really know too well means they come across with their original intention - to offend.

:| ugh your telling me I was "triggered", that's hard to take.


I'm sorry about any issue you think this may cause with the owners (must admit I never thought of that) but i'm tired of Blakey's snark and simply refuse to deal with him anymore.

Before the internet this would have been settled in the pub car park, but you cant square up to a laptop screen so this is my only option.

You weren't triggered. It's a term wrongly used these days. Unless you did actually have a anxiety or psychotic attack due to PTSD.

Triggereds definition has been twisted into meaning "fired up" or "offended" now. Language evolves faster than superbugs created by Chinese overusing antibiotics on livestock.

You're telling me. Hearing the kids speak on Love Island confuses the shit outta me.

Well can't really add to what the nice folks on here already have.

This'll blow over. It's nothing really. Apart from you n Blakey need to find some respectful ground.

Makes me think about people I butted heads with in the past 🤔

Do you hear that, Dwarf? We gotta stop the violence and bloodshed. Too many threads have died because of our bullshit. I will respectfully accept that you’re a millennial if you respect that I’m not one

Hug it out?
