Bolts, Bans and Room Logs, Oh My!
I think this is the kind of stuff that should be talked about in the room when Byrdy is here so everyone is clear
Ok Phoe is exactly right, as i understand it. Byrdy has said more than once that it’s not the political chat per se that she doesn’t like, it’s the name calling and fighting about it. Actually it already has been talked about in the room with Byrdy here, but a lot of people don’t listen or aren’t in the room when it happens. If this kind of situation keeps happening then don’t be surprised if the room loses people to other rooms, which was kind of the point of my “nice” skit on last night’s post. It was meant to be funny and extreme of course, but rooms do fall apart because everyone has their own view of what should and shouldn’t be allowed and watch out when it’s them or their friends getting bolted, by God .Speaking for myself, I will blog where the action is and one reason i rarely blog about shit that happens at 4AM here is there is rarely any action here. I actually have blog material from other rooms i’ve been meaning to get to so maybe this will be good timing for that soon. One thing that is lmao material is how WW suddenly starts to insert what he thinks other rules should be here, as if he has any power. On a sidenote it fucking cracks me up when people talk about how long the blog is when i post logs that people in the room asked me to post. Of course its long, it’s a goddamn log and when a situation that people want to see detail on drags on for over an hour, you can be assured the log will have some length to it. Hell i didn’t even post the full 90 minutes that the suzy log lasted. So if you don’t want to read a long blog entry, don’t. Byrdy I support your desire to have whatever rules you want in your room. If you want to make rules as you go, that’s ok because it’s your room. If you want to change the rules, that’s ok because it’s your room. You don’t need me or anyone else telling you what to do because in the end, it’s your room. I support Cora acting as your co-host as well. My own view is she was wrong on this one(sorry Cora, i still like you!), but in the end if you support what she did, that’s ok because it’s your room. I am just a blogger and this is just a blog and one man’s opinion. good, bad and ugly.
Once again, so we are clear
Hyp and Byrdy were both wanting to see the Arf chat around the time she bolted him and i think some were wanting to see the Suzy gig from last night so after i pontificate on a couple of things below, i will post what i can find on instabang log in those. In the case of Suzy’s episode last night, it would be ludicrous to try and post the full log but i will post where i think it started and some of the main points that inspired the blog yesterday.
Earlier today or last night Byrdy commented about how the blogger probably wouldn’t agree with her banning of Arf I posted previously on the bolting/banning topic several weeks ago and was clear about my view. I mistakenly assumed that because Byrdy said she was keeping Temp’s list of banned chatters active carrying forward to this room, that she was also keeping the same two rules. Byrdy has a right to have any rules in place she wants since it’s her room. What i think and how i would run a room has ZERO to do with how she feels her room needs to be run. A big part of my position on bolting has to do with my disdain for political correctness of any kind. I am also a huge believer in freedom of speech even if the speech is distasteful, snarky, hateful, juvenile etc. Doxxing is a gray area for me only because i’m enough of an asshole that if someone wanted to put my shit in the room, i DON’T FUCKING CARE. If they extended that to coming to my house, it’s game on bitch and for their own safety they better hope they don’t cross the threshold of any door of my abode. The idea of someone telling me how i can talk and act is something i simply could never accept since i haven’t had that kind of restriction since i was a kid and even then my parents were somewhat accepting of our rights to say what we feel (unless we were grounded or somehow in other types of trouble!). Don’t mistake this for me backing Arf or anyone else that has been bolted. I’m not here to plead their cases and in Arf’s specific case, if Byrdy feels personally threatened, keep the shithead banned. Hell i can even admit it was fucking funny as hell to see his ass kicked out of the room. Having said all that, too many people in the room want to control who is allowed or not allowed there by offering their input when they feel someone is crossing the line. My thinking is use the goddamn Block feature. Byrdy can’t block without blocking people from the room, but no one else in the room has a right to that excuse and if someone is getting stressed to the point they can’t handle the offender then block block blockity block block block. A secondary problem with bolting if it gets out of hand is the room soon will become too “nice”. Let’s face it, if the room only had nice people, words, situations every hour of every day, this blog would get boring as fuck real fast. let’s see what that might look like .
