Has anyone heard from Concerned Canuk?

I haven't seen any posts from him in a long time. I did a search back to Jan. 1 and got no results.

Maybe he is stuck in a snowdrift or something! He lives in the backwoods somewhere in Canada.

CC, where are you???

7. Did you see the one nasty homophobic post about the olympics?

 

I think it's one of those cases where you step over the line and then you're toast.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=713872

Me, I was all like "Fuck the Olympics, especially with this gay banning shit" but I was hating the Olympics anyway.

I have no idea why the member would want to defend the "games".

12. I did see it.

There is a thread on CC in MIRT.

I stayed away from the Olympics threads.

14. I'm not seeing a MIRT thread on this member.

 

Do you have a link you can send by PM?

And, like you, I was not interested in the Olympics drama.

guess I missed all of that. Some people just choose to post less but I don't always check to see if they'd been PPR'd.

4. Of course I wasn't part of the conversation. I wonder if it was this post.

 

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1014&pid=713872

It is pretty offensive, but this POV is not uncommon among especially older folks. Honestly, I don't know that I'd ban a person for it but I'm not surprised if that's what happened.

It's got that "some of my best friends" thing going and a whole lot more. Who knows.

This is their last post, AFAIK: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1017&pid=172824

FWIW, I don't recall that member being a problem, and I do remember administrative decisions that were a bit harsh and were even reversed.

Who remembers, for example, that MiddleFingerMom was banned for what was deemed a homophobic post?

If Canuck deserved it, that's fine. I just never saw it.

6. If that was what got him PPR that seems a

tad extreme. I have seen a lot worse posts then that which did not result in someone being PPRd.

11. Typically, admins look for a pattern.

 

A singular post doesn't ordinarily do it, but a series of posts (and hidden posts are recorded forever) may result in action.

As I wrote above, a most beloved member who recently passed, MiddleFingerMom, was banned and then reinstated for a post that many found to be homophobic but the intention was never there. It was more of a bad judgement call on MFM's part.

RIP MFM.

18. Well, I am ever less supportive of the Olympics. I'm sorry that CC cared so much.

 

For a fucking commercialized no-ender and, in this event, a homophobic clusterfuck.

They went too far, too bad for them and I won't shed a tear as their rationale is a meaningless one, I don't care about international competitions that are supported by corporations. Fuck them all.

19. To be honest I couldn't say I boycotted the Olympics for the same reason

I could not say I boycott chik-fil-a I wouldn't eat there anyway same with the Olympics I don't watch them in any event-to claim boycott just seems bandwagon jumping

20. You said Chik Fil A so I am now obliged to post this youtube video. Warning. Tosh.0

 

It could considered offensive if you haven't been exposed to the snarky and self-effacing Westwood Santa Monica demographic of which Daniel Tosh is a part.

You got this:



And then there's this:

13. At the risk of being banned myself, I'll remind Skinner et all that they banned MiddleFingerMom.

 

And that was a mistake.

I don't have the posting history of ConcernedCanuk, but I kinda feel like if they were a troll we'd all know it by now.

That post about the olympics is certainly inappropriate, unkind, insensitive, and more, but I'm not sure if it, by itself, is ban-worthy.

If there are other indications of homophobia or trollish behavior then I hope people will post them.

I'm unconvinced.

26. I'm shocked, and certainly saddened to see him go too.

Especially in such a summary fashion, when by contrast, nasty and relentless agitators rack up hidden posts and get a 90 day suspension. Unless I'm missing something.

27. MFM was banned for "bad humor" which is why it was reversed.

CC was very clear, and it wasn't the first time, his opinions of GLBT people was not very high, despite his "best friend's" caveat. His post wasn't "inappropriate, unkind, insensitive, and more" is was flat-out bigoted! Claiming gay people are "shoving their agenda in his face" is the type of shit one would see on a right-wing site, if need be, I can pull many examples.

29. Look, I totally agree with you. MFM was a gem and that one post wasn't indicative of a pattern.

 

I'm fine with the PPR of CC, I'm just trying to let the community know that it's a work in progress, this whole community monitored thing.

I think you get where I'm coming from...

He was a member for 11 years. I'm sorry he's gone; I enjoyed his posts. I won't write anything more of how I feel, for fear of ending up banned myself.

28. I see him on Facebook.

I didn't realize he'd been PPRed. I'm not sure why that keeps happening to my best friends. I've lost many.
