PostSubject: Minor Power Abuse   Tue Mar 05, 2013 9:04 pm

We began discussing allowable words in chat because some of the allowable ones were starred out. Mr Kura was in 2k7 and had to dodge filter to say one. I believe the kick and subsequent boasting was somewhat over the top. Although afterwards Mr kura did come in on alts which is kickable but before that I don't believe it was kick worthy.

All the "Dont mess with Brooksie!" comments don't really help the case.
As much as I like and respect Brooksie I have to agree with you.

Have to agree; that's a bit excessive with the last statement and the warning. I get brooks is playing on 07 servers but it's a bit far-fetched to warn/kick for that. The rules definitely have chillaxed about swearing and banned words from the older days. It can perhaps be a banned topic to discuss vulgar words or words that can be seen as obscene (such as porn, parts of the human anatomy, etc.)

It was a bit excessive, although Kura did push it. I'll note some thoughts..

- I understand that the words were only mentioned in relation to how stupid the filter is, but it's still not really recommended to go talking porn/sexually explicit content. Despite this, I do think that Brooks' warning/statement was a bit over the top... Even though Kura was warned by Autumn and whoever else also.
- I appreciate how your warned/explained the events to everyone, Discord, so thanks for that.
- Kura has been in the Nest long enough to know the rules - Saying "Lawl", 'Y so mad?" is just immature, stupid and a little disrespectful. He has a tendency to push ranks/rules a little, but usually it isn't to this degree.
- Coming back in on alternate accounts with the intention to troll/rub it in and get kicked again was just plain immature and unnecessary. The third and final time, I was about to kick him myself when Autumn beat me to it.
- In response to DearCelestia, my statement ("Especially x2 if it's Brooksie") was in response to Kura's above statement "Lawl/Y so mad?" which resulted in him being kicked, nothing more... We all know how stringent Brooksie is.

TL;DR: Brooksie's warnings/actions were a bit excessive. Kura did push his luck though, and using alternate accounts was childish. Thanks for bringing this up here, Discord.

Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone in thinking this. Although, I believe Kura's reaction to being kicked, the multiple accounts, has nothing to do with the power abuse seeing as it happened after the initial kick. The issue isn't how kura reacted but what he reacted to. I personally believe a joking friendly "y you mad" is not out of line or excessively disrespectful.


What makes it the worst for me is the underlined statement from brooksie. That's distrspect in the other dirction. How can I respect a rank that doesn't respect me...that views me as an all around lesser because my name doesn't have a star next to it?

I don't really want to take sides with anyone but Wana suggested a rap battle. I'm not a good rapper but I'm okay with rhymes. Very Happy

Power abuse is no laughing matter
And no-one wants to be the subject of batter
Wherever you go be nice to eachother
Forgive transgressions; don't insult their mother

But if you are cheeky, a jester of sorts
Be wary of those who may send reports
It's better to leave rule breaking at the door
Foster some friendship, that's what SN is for Smile

So what am I saying to all of you here?
Live and let live, let anger disappear
But if the habit to offend should take root
Do not be surprised if we reply with a boot

I would have warned for it as well probably. Can't say I want people saying rubbish like that in Friends Chat. If people want to use that sort of language they can go to one of the less classy establishments Razz

Normally I would agree with you but in the context it was being used I believe the kick was too sudden and mildly excessive.

Yeah I agree he was probably a bit hasty on the kick there but the warning definitely was not out of place. Some captains+ are going to moderate things a little different as well I mean you guys get away with murder with me to be honest. That doesn't mean though because you guys get away with pushing me more than you are entitled to push another captain more (referring to the Hop comment in the chat).

Brooks like to run a tight ship and sassing him is not a way of going about things.
