Group Hosts - Notification that I'm going to block a Member - AA Group Host Thread

AOR - Popped up in my MIRT Inbox - 40 posts since July 10th and may come back here and start trouble. Seems focused on 1strong and I don't have time for the nonsense.

1. I have dealt with that one

 

and his class argument before. SOS. Different day. He like the rest who deny the virulence, viciousness and lethality of amerikkkan racism based on skin color alone, are part of the privileged class that doesn't have to worry about racism precisely because of their skin color alone. They will NEVER grasp even the fundamentals of racism. Block on...please. Some of these "whitesplainers" have to go.

2. I got a post of his hidden just yesterday. Seems to have MASSIVE issues with 1SBM

Guy is brand new and already has an issue with one of the few minority posters here. No, that doesn't smell fishy at all. The real question is, are the admins going to do something about these people that go out of their fucking way to harass our members???

But you cannot ban anyone without them posting in this forum first. So we can't do any type of pre-emptive banning even if we wanted to.

This is what you and many others are missing...

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

YOUR COMMENTS

This is a nasty, abusive post from a newbie who appears to have joined DU for the sole purpose of putting 1StrongBlackMan "in his place." This is nothing short of astonishing.

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sun Jul 19, 2015, 05:35 PM, and voted 4-3 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Actually, I thought it was a well thought out post, and certainly didn't see anything even hinting of a personal attack.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Low post count, attacking longtime DUer. And yet another poster lecturing AfAm DUers about what is important. So sick of this.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: Sounds like truth to power to my ears, few posts or not.
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given

7. And you - an undecided voter

Just got another post hidden -


Number23 This message was hidden by Jury decision. Hide
110. It's obvious that you think Bernie turns pee into wine and can breathe water. I am interested in

hearing what he has to say and discussing this with people without you chasing everyone around.

THIS thread was about Bernie Sanders, not Hillary.
A Jury voted 4-3 to hide this post on Tue Jul 7, 2015, 10:27 PM. Reason: This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.


If they alert me out of this thread - watch me start another one with whomever I think did it at the top.

Tm99(sp?) wrote someone was being a jerk - because they weren't kissing her ass in this group. Not one fuck to give if she is bi-racial.

I am too. It's not an excuse to be mean.

9. TM99... I'll stop myself there but you know what I'm thinking.

Not that I give a shit about hidden posts. Not anymore.

But that post you're referring to was hidden weeks ago and was in response to BrotherIvan. Apparently on a web site where many of its posters are unable to post without typing the word "fuck" at least a half dozen times, the word "pee" in that post was just too Terrible Horrible!! Those delicate sensibilities just kicked in the second I hit the "Post my Reply" button!!

11. Last night read a post with someone saying all AA's not for BS are 1%. SMH and left DU then.

It's as if there was an envy thing going on there.

Makes no sense. I wonder if it's a spam program typing nonsense from words used?

Same thread different post -

90. Bravenak is the only DUer that I had on my hidden posts list. Glad She/He is gone

You wrote: 

"In fact some seem to want to circumcsribe how black people act, who their leaders should and shouldn't be, and how those leaders should act." 

I do try to listen, and keep trying. And in turn, others are obligated to try to understand me. That's the deal. That's what makes it a conversation. It's plain, though, after a few postings, and replies, that some people you try to interact with have no interest in conversation -- only in broadcasting their internal monologue. If you reply, the response is a shout down -- a 'how dare you try to talk' smack -- as though you tried to grab their megaphone. 

Maybe Bravenak was smacked-down, or denied the right to talk in the past. Maybe he/she has legitimate grievances for past generations of his/her family. Or maybe she's the reincarnation of a Confederate General attached to a karmic bungee cord -- I just don't know. I do know that I came here to talk, to listen, and be listened-to. Sorry, but telling me that, when it comes to race, I only get to do one (listen) is a deal breaker.

14. I just got a post hidden in this forum because I asked someone who is hostile to black

posters and has been for years to not post in this forum.

So from now on, I will no longer ask. I will block and not say one word. Excellent work, jury. Just made things a shit load easier for me.

17. Unlike other groups here, I have made a concerted effort to always give people the chance to know

that their opinions and perspectives are not wanted before blocking them. And I have always done that more than once. People generally get about 3-4 warnings from me that they're not wanted here before they get the block. I've always thought that was the right thing to do.

This incredibly stupid jury decision has changed that, just like that. No more warnings now. And if anyone wants to know why, they can refer to this post.

18. I'll still update this thread

I ask people politely to back away.

But the one this afternoon - unacceptable.

They had every single oter group and board to post that - it was beyond cruel to someone who is just a member on time out.

19. Wow.. I looked around for

it but didn't see it.

Hate it when BSers can get anyone a hide even in their own Group because they can't handle anything but praise for BS.

Didn't they just make life easier. So many times when ugliness rears its stupid head life has a way of turning it into an opportunity for something good.
