Lmao seeing as the moderator has had personal issue with dark_lord in the past this feels very petty. Seeing as it isnt generalising

Even if it's not generalising it's definitely sexism so I don't think the moderation is unfair.

Plus to me at least Pemalite seems like one of, if not the, least biased mods on the team so...

It's sexism, alright. But I think this highlights a consistent problem that VGC moderation has had for a long time and why females don't want to post much, if they even sign up at all.

You just need to give the thread dark_lord posted in a read. You'll find that the OP (Metroid33slayer) has written several posts that are sexist and misogynist beyond doubt, but the one post that got picked out for moderation targets men.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Your claim calls the moderation bogus, based on the moderator who provided it and on the moderation type. I'm telling you that, even if you remove Pem, you don't remove the moderation (whether it was Flaming for Generalization or Sexism). 

As for the thread, once I reviewed everything, it was agreed upon to lock it. Yes, misogyny played a big role in the thread and the OP will also be dealt with as a result.

Earlier today with some of the mods I discussed seeing such generalizing posts in that topic before (and as I recall they were aimed towards women), but that was at my own leisure as there were no reports from that thread, so I didn't take a full look through the topic yet.

The thread was locked based on the OP and some misogynistic comments, but I think the idea was that we would fully review the thread later as well.

In the meantime if you think any particular posts in there stand out, feel free to report them as it can speed up the process. But either way, we'll be looking through all of the posts in there shortly.

As for Pemalite, the important thing is if the moderation was justified or not, and I think it was. You have to keep in mind that there's always a good possibility that the moderator hasn't seen other potential offenses, if they were not reported. Everyone is busy with their lives, and when we're not, we mainly focus on the reports we get. Because we tend to get a lot of them. And one single report can take quite a few days to resolve.

I dunno, claiming that women need to be "controlled" is pretty misogynist as well.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I have absolutely zero personal issues with anyone on this forum. Even Dark_Lord. - Some of his posts certainly does grate me as we have very different world views.. And that is actually perfectly fine.
The world is made up of individuals all with differing perspectives, it's a good thing... Thus I debate the points he presents rather than take issue with the individual.

Not only that... But before we moderate anyone, it's brought up in the mod chat so as to side-step any personal issues one may have for anyone... Meaning your complaint is pretty much pointless anyway from all angles, but thanks for bringing up your concerns... I am sure the Head Mods have taken note.

He was generalizing by inferring from a specific case. - That men were weak due to not having appropriate control of women.

I do have a PC bias though... :P

But in general I have no preferences or ill towards any individuals on this site, I take things as they come.

You actually bring up a valid point... So I ask if you see such infractions... Smack that report button or let a moderator know so we can take the appropriate course of action... Even though we try, we don't always see everything.



Why was Rols thread closed he gave a valid point even if he didnt have my permission to use my userdata.

You should PM the mod who closed it. :)

Because of the reason him creating the thread which I explained in my closing post, also the answer is no anyway.
