The last thread locked as a perfect example, the mods lock/destroy threads, but do not do anything to moderate. All the pics of hot chicks, then gay pics and a Mod abusing members with family personal attacks? Seriously, WTF?
Why not remove the off topic and abusive shit? Basically you reward people for being abusive, now that thread is permanent because you locked it.
Basically the spammers won. The topic was valid, the emotional tangents were valid, only derailed by members knowing you would not do anything.
Most people do whatever they want here to whomever they want, But instead of doing actual moderating, you lock threads without any accountability? Douchebaggery collectively.
Drunk with power is an understatement, and I imagine something will come to a head in an unrelated and unexpected way with these choices of karma and patterns of incompetence.
Here are a few Snowolf letters about what went down. WHile I don't agree with everything said, it clears up and many things proven in the last thread that was locked. I have much more compassion and understanding than just nuking people, but the bullying games do need to stop.
"See why I gave up?
Followed the drama on the I hate thread. See what I was up against as an admin who tried to bust up the frat boy circle jerk with that douchebag Killclimbz and his pet troll BA? When I started the Neversummer design team, BA led the attack against me after years of being the most helpful and friendly member of the forum. As an instructor, I was always helping folks with their riding. These usual suspects twisted it around and saw it as abusing my admin status so I had enough one night and deleted 6 years worth of posts.
It is truly the most dysfunctional forum I have ever seen and Killclimbz is the biggest reason for it. He is unfit to be an admin and is beyond arrogant and egocentric. Notice also that for the most part their clique comprises mostly people from Colorado? I hate that state with a passion because most people from Colorado that I have met are self absorbed pricks who think the universe revolves around Colorado!
It is amazing to behold the way this little circle jerk twists reality like that lame ass Donutz has done.
Killclimbz is about the dumbest thing on the planet too. How is Blake 1979 being "homophobic" by actually celebrating and promoting his gayness?????? Dumb fuck doesn't even know what homophobia even is.
The things you see are real and the forum regulars have drank the kool aid. I fought it non stop and tried to ban BA who is a full blown psychopath, by the way. I've met the guy and rode part of the day with him. Got away from him ASAP as I saw the mental instability as did my friends riding with me that day.
As for Killclimbz, he's a 250 pound wannabe who loves to toot his own horn about being some back country god. He's a poser! He tours an abandoned ski are a quarter mile from the highway and walks his dog. Dude spends way more time on the Internet in about 10 forums than he does actually snowboarding. I wouldn't rely on him in the back country; he is too damn stupid!
This forum is turning to shit faster than I could have imagined when I nuked my account. Neversummer won't have a thing to do with it after the way I was treated."
