Title: More Active/Stricter Moderation - Yes/No
Post by: Gaaboardmod3 on October 06, 2017, 02:11:34 PM
Genuinely interested in the response to this. In the past the moderation has been seen as too 'heavy handed', now the board is struggling with threads descending into slagging matches, many provocative posts and a significant number of WUMs, Trolls and shit stirrers. Do people on the board want mods to take a much harsher line on posters? Should there be much more frequent bans handed out for those who appear to be just causing angst for the craic?

Most shit stirrers are your regulars who get a bye ball, especially those with numerous accounts who's only aim is to get a rise.

Leave things as they are.  As people have said there is an ignore button.  You know who annoys you, so don't read their posts even the are part of a long number quotes.

The board seems to work ok. It is impossible to moderate the human need for attention. The vast majority of posters play fair.

As much as I'd love some posters to disappear, there's a thin line between insanity and being a troll so I'd say leave it alone.

Self-control should be enough.

 There are a number of threads that descend into anarchy because of the polarised views of the main protaginists (Anything church related, US Politics etc) but you can tell from the posters on both sides that they genuinely believe what they are posting. These should be left alone and anyone who wants to contribute knows what they are getting into.

What I would like to see a tighter rein on is the obvious shitstirrers who go onto specific  threads with the sole aim of twisting and getting a rise (Soccer threads probably the best example) and the usual suspects who will take any thread and if their hobby horse topic is even remotely connected to the new topic will turn  it into a slanging match with their usual foes from the threads above and the original topic gets lost. The Vegas Shooting thread is a prime example of this.

These punters should either be warned or told to take it back to the original thread.

There are certain threads with certain divergent views, you can choose whether to enter these threads or not, if they have clear titles
Derailing threads on other issues is less acceptable and personal abuse of posters not acceptable at all, IMHO.

Wouldn't work as the board isn't a members only board.Anyone can still read the board if they are a member or not.

It's been mentioned before but never came to fruition but I'd be happy to pay a fee for membership.
I don't know if there is much running costs to keep the board going but if there was anything left over after paying the running costs the money could go to a different charity every year.

I voted for Yes - But only if there is a repeated pattern... as its the most sensible option.

Comparing what StGalls does to what Foxcommander does is like comparing a drunk lad in a kebab shop shouting about Enda Kenny ruining the country to Katie Hopkins.

I really don't know why people think painting issues in absolutes is a clever thing to do, because it's the opposite. Drawing false equivalences never is.

WUMs can be easily ignored. it's the blatant racism, sexism and bigotry that needs to be clamped down on. No place for that in society or on here. Let the tough bully boys treat their wives and children how they want but keep it off here. And keep the personal abuse down too, the crossmaglen thread got pretty nasty and one board member in particular did very well to rise above it all.

Some people take their life on here way too seriously. I enjoy the board as much as the next man but generally I wouldnít get too upset about someone I donít know, and am never likely to meet, saying something I donít like. I find when I log off I donít give the Board too much thought. So extra moderation of threads wouldnít be something I would be too bothered about.

I used to be great friends with an English guy when I was in university. He was a real Laaadaner. He would regularly call me a terrorist and I would regularly give him shit about Britain raping and pillaging their way round the world.  We had fierce debates about so many different things, particularly when we had a bottle of gin or whiskey.  Contextually though we both knew and respected each other well as we were just expressing our opinions and were very tongue in cheek about a lot of it.

In my opinion much of what goes on on this board is like that.....but some take it too far. Yes I made it personally recently with Fearon and I will stand over that because his comments were personally hurtful to me and he knew what he was at. The thing you get back in life what you put out. That is my motto and I will always stick to that. If you put out good vibes good things happen back. If you peddle in lies, deceit and nastiness don't cry when you get a box in the mouth. Leave it as it is,  most of us are big boys and girls(metaphorically speaking to Rois, Leenie and Tyrone Girl...only Tyrone women on the board...we miss anluabu...she was lovely!).

You can assume most if not all of the WUM alt accounts like Foxcommander have voted for one of the no options, and you can pretty much double their votes because nearly all will have more than a single account at hand.

It's actually a relatively comprehensive vote for Yes, probably something in the region of 70% plus.

Do people on the board want mods to take a much harsher line on posters? Should there be much more frequent bans handed out for those who appear to be just causing angst for the craic?

The clues are in the questions.

Seriously. If you have noticed that things have gone downhill then why do you need to take a poll? The rules are there in black and white and the penalties are spelled out in plain English. Enforce them.

There are quite obviously a number of accounts set up to cause division and controversy (look at the amount of stupid Mayo threads in the run up to the AI Final) that are almost definitely other posters on the board operating a second/third account. However, I too lack the detective skills needed to be able to identify who the original account is.

I think I remember BCB or one of the other Armagh posters highlighting a post from an account with a large number of posts that was at the time commonly accused of being a WUM. He stated that a word used by the WUM had only been used once before on this forum (must have searched for it), and it was said by another account with an even larger number of posts.

Some people on here have completely lost the run of themselves when it comes to looking for things to be offended about

Just yesterday a poster was reminiscing about the good old days when the top flight English squads were dominated by English, Irish, Welsh and Scottish players

A poster called him to account and implied that his views were both xenophobic and rascist.

Thats how a lot of these rows start.....people making legitimate points, then others jumping down their neck outraged at some supposed slight......happens me all the time  :)

Hi Lads,

I've done a bit of digging and thinking on this, and I take on board the point about enforcing rules we have in place. If you report a post, I will moderate it based on the rules we have published. I will not proactively trawl through posts on every thread to make sure everything is in order, but if I see something myself that is unreported I will follow up just as if it were reported.

I will refer to the following rules a lot of the time as my guide, and I will adhere to their penalties and try my best to implement the spirit of the rules.

1. Personal abuse.
    Personal abuse is one of the most common problems on internet boards. Known sometimes as 'playing the man', whether foul language is used or not, this behaviour is
    not allowed.
    e.g. Calling someone a fat fool is the same as calling someone something more vulgar. This rule applies even in situations where another user has breached this, or
    another rule. Retaliation is still a breach of the rule.
   
    Penalties- 1st Offence - Warning,  Second Offence - 2 Day Ban, Third Offence - 10 Day Ban, Fourth Offence - Permanent Ban

I hope this is self explanatory. To me this is the just as bad as 'trolling' in bringing threads into an unreadable state. And many posters have been guilty of this. It stops now. If you can't reply to a poster without insulting them, then either ignore their posts completely, or you will be subject to the above. That goes for everyone.


2. Libellous/insulting posts about a real person

   In this day and age, many more people are becoming aware of the existance of boards such as this. While this is generally a good thing, it also means that the posts are
   more likely to be read by a casual visitor to the site. In these circumstances, the board must protect itself against allegations of libel, or defamation and so any posts
   which make derogatory remarks about a named, or clearly implied, individual, are a serious breach of the rules, and dangerous to the board itself. This particularly applies
   to individuals' private lives, finances, legal issues etc etc. This also applies to unwarranted abuse of GAA players and officials.
   
   Penalties - 1st Offence - Warning, Second Offence  - 5 Day Ban, Third Offence - Permanent Ban

This one I freely admit is not consistent in its application. Where the topic of conversation is Irish, or particularly part of the GAA community, then you are treading on very dangerous ground and that will be a red flag item for Moderators. However, that doesn't mean you have carte blanche to talk about other people, and if posts are reported, you will also be subject to the above.

4. Inappropriate posts, incitement or racist posting.
   This is a very broad topic, and can be the most subjective in the way the moderators view things. In general, it would be the 'good manners' rule. Specific examples of
    inappropriate posts would be the following. (This list is by no means conclusive)
      - Abusive posts between fans of soccer teams, clearly not part of good humoured banter. Mentions of Hillsborough, Munich, Heysel or alluding to these incidents in a
        way designed to incite other posters to break forum rules.
      - Sectarian posts, or posts advocating violence against any community or person. Some of the topics under discussion from the different cultures on this island have
        come close to this. That will not be allowed or accomodated.
      - Racist posts, including posts propogating racist views about any race or community.
      - inappropriate posts such as the Maddie McCann jokes etc.
     
   Penalties - 1st Offence - Warning, Second Offence - 10 Day Ban, Third Offence - Permanent Ban

This rule was brought into effect because this board was almost ruined by soccer threads descending into madness. It is obvious that we need to reiterate this rule, not just for soccer, but for far wider areas. With the current refugee crisis, and other social issues, posts about groups like Refugees, Asylum Seekers, Racial Groups or the Travelling Community are all covered by this rule. If you make a racist or insulting post about any such group, you will be pulled up on it. This is subjective in certain areas, as mentioned above, but it is objective in those specific areas.  This does not mean that you cannot have an opinion that Refugees or Asylum Seekers should/should not be allowed into the country etc, but if you have such an opinion, you cannot use racist terms, or stereotypes to back up that sort of position. You'll have to tread a fine line and debate it properly. If your opinions are distasteful to many, you should expect to be challenged on them, and if you veer into this territory, you will be subject to this rule.

8. Joining up to cause trouble, or to annoy people.
   Occasionally, some people join the board simply to post something abusive, or to 'flame' the board. These people are generally easy to spot (see the F365 invasion last
   year) and have no real interest in the GAA Board. Also some people, who have been banned permanently, rejoin under different usernames and continue with the
   behaviour that led to the ban. By tracking IPs, behaviour and other items, we can sometimes tell this fairly easily, and these users will be banned again.
   
   Penalty - Immediate Permanent Ban

This may be the most subjective of all, and was actually created to counter a very specific scenario where we had posters from F365 joining, posting highly inflammatory material, and then being banned. This was not a 'trolling' rule. However as people have pointed out, it could easily be interpreted in that manner and so that is a valid perspective. Trolls are hard to legislate for, because as long as they do not post abuse, do not post racist or vulgar material, and argue their position in a logical manner, then it is hard to call them trolls. Of course if a pattern of contrarian behaviour emerges, then the likelihood is that these are not genuinely held positions (no matter how abhorrent they appear to a lot of us) but they are actually trolling.


So what does all that mean? It means that I cannot and will not ban someone for having a contrary position, even if it is a horrible one, as long as that person adheres to board rules about posting of material.

I encourage people who do not want to engage or read such posts to ignore, or alternatively to report them if they are in clear breach of one of the rules, especially the ones mentioned here.

If a poster or posters are seen to have a pattern of 'stirring it up' across several topics, then the moderator will make a subjective decision on whether the poster is a troll and can take action according to Rule 8.

Finally, as for myself, I will commit to reviewing all reports within as quick a time as possible, and I will use those rules as a guideline. I think we do need to tighten things up to make this board more usable, and that has been a bit lax recently. I won't please everyone. Some of your reports will be not acted on, but I will try explain why. Some bans will annoy people, but I hope this post explains the rationale.

I hope this post explains my thinking on this, other moderators and the admin may have a different view, but until told otherwise, this is the direction I will take.

Cheers

A rule of thumb I think is treat it like the local pub. If you wouldn't say something there for fear of getting a well deserved box on the mouth, then don't say it here.

Just catching up with this now.... Jaysus its like the Arab Spring but then a good deal of threads on here are like the Syrian Civil War

Does my vote still count... not even sure how to vote..... has the mod made his decision anyway despite the majority saying no?

On the one hand more moderation is needed because good discussions can quickly descend into pure crap sometimes.

On the other does this mean I cant call the Derry wan inbreds anymore? Tony Fearon is gonna get a lot of people banned at this rate.

Why is ad hominen the only logical fallacy that is being targeted when there are countless ones.

Is there a danger of stifling debate here with contrary opinions being labels as trolls and getting banned.

I fear that a lot of people want posters they disagree with to be booted off? What the point in having a discussion or argument anyway? Do you just want everyone to think the same as you at the end of it or can you not just leave it when you see that its not going anywhere. I do it because I enjoy thrashing around ideas, hearing the news, and learning from others

There are threads that will tend towards inevitable stupidity anyway like the Derry football thread ... I never go near it. ;-)

Do we want everyone to be as pious as J70 & AZOffaly anyway? How f**king boring would that be we need all sorts IMO

...Still tho with all that said I think Im gonna vote for better moderation.

Let's get one thing straight. The old "you want to ban anyone who disagrees with you" fallacy is BS. I disagree with plenty of people here on various topics but I don't feel the urge to get into abusive name-calling or stalking every one of their posts about some pet topic that I want to hassle them about. However this is precisely what Fox does on a daily basis in flagrant violation of rules that are posted up there in black and white and with very specific penalties prescribed. What's so unreasonable about demanding that the rules, as written, be enforced?

Really? A jews are tight with money joke?
Yes. A bit of light humour. Have you some point to make?

Yes. It was a joke in poor taste that reinforces old antisemitic tropes.

That sort of thing is ok around here though.

Shi#te, thats me in trouble then. Told a similar joke at work last week but it was a scottish person instead.
         Come to think of it, someone else was slagging off Cavan(sorry anyone from Cavan on here) people for being tight during another discussion. I shall be reporting him first thing tomorrow.
Has there been a genocide perpetrated against Scottish people or Cavan people, in which the portrayal of them as "money grabbers" was used to mobilise the widespread, systemic hatred and prejudice against them which enables genocide to happen?

The Halocaust was carried out by the Nazis but the Jews try to make everybody feel guilty for it. Anyone criticizing the Jews is accused of antisemitism to the point that they can carry out atrocities of their own with impunity.

As far as the money grabber title is concerned, it is well deserved

So, is this blatant anti-semitism going to be allowed to stand?

Will this forum's descent into the far right gutter be allowed to continue?

To suggest a whole ethnic group share the same personality (in this case negative) is racist. I have met many money grabbers who are Irish and of course many who are not.

I would point out both instances required moderation, but anyone who thinks what Mickey is getting is worse than what happened in the rape trial thread is off their rockers and rolling down a hill of self-deception.

I think you need to look up what Ďnot guiltyí means if you think it equals Ďtotally innocentí.. none of which makes the rumour and insulations about the victim any better, by the way.

Here you go again.

Totally innocent of the charges proferred .

You find it hard to accept you were wrong. You should be used to it at this stage.....

And yes I agree the character assault of the accuser was very wrong but the "justice" system that allows innocent people be named is terrible and allows a free reign to biased keyboard junkies

Still totally incorrect, and the rest highlights what is a callow attempt to change the focus away from the blatant hypocrisy on display.

My point stands well enough no matter what you try to say.

Sure discussing someone beating cancer would seem straight forward  ::)

Ban everyone under 30 as they, by and large, lack sense.

My grandfather used to say "everytime you see a young lad, give him a clip around the ear. He's either going to do harm, or he's coming from doing harm."

Do that & soon the only thing left on here will be the Death Notices thread.

Heís right though. People often look back at their lives before 30 and cringe.
Some have posted shite on an internet discussion board.
Others have prostituted themselves to a fizzy orange drink company for a sullied Irish pound.

Ironic that the poster who initiated this whole debate would undoubtedly be permanently banned by now if the rules were followed rigidly.

As someone else said - everyone needs to lighten up a bit and take themselves a little less seriously.  It's an anonymous internet discussion forum, not international diplomacy.

Harsh, I started the thread!

A rule of thumb I think is treat it like the local pub. If you wouldn't say something there for fear of getting a well deserved box on the mouth, then don't say it here.

Good rule of thumb
what about saying it in the local pub of the boyo or club you are slagging ?

mod Q - on this thread, the latest posts come up first, on others I have to go to the end of all the pages to get the latest post, is this a default setting i can change for the threads I read ?
thanks in advance
