If only it were all so simple! If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?

Hi @Patrick - there's a T2 guy in the mod queue asking to be deleted, both comment and account.
I'm biased towards approval absent "Go Fuck Yourself, you sniveling shitbag."
yeah, its a childish conversation. even if those two want to have that convo, i'd lean towards deleting it anyways... just to keep the forum focused on actual discussions. dont want this place slipping back into the realm of personal flame wars.
I really don't want flame wars. I'm definitely still on the pendulum swing away from "anything goes" towards quickly deleting anything that sounds like a personal attack on other users.
If you really applied this standard without bias, it would be great. As it is now, it is ridiculous. I challenge you to look at curious2's posts over the past 3 days and tell me how his remain but mine are deleted and I somehow end up in moderation. This website is a joke.

as expected. Run away little man.
This website is a joke.
Your comments do remain, including this one:
If some of your comments are not appearing, you might have blocked scripting or something, but it has nothing to do with me. I have never flagged any of your comments as personal, even though some are, clearly. I had simply stopped responding to you, and you responded to that by taunting me (see above). Now you seem to pursue the matter in other threads. Again, it has nothing to do with me, so I would prefer that you (including your aliases joeyjoejoejr and tatupu70 among others) leave me out of it.
Patrick LET you say that.Argue the topic instead of attacking the person and your posts should be fine.
I'm in post moderation for doing NOTHING wrong, and no posts deleted
If all posts were treated equally and all personal attacks were deleted, then I would be ecstatic.
Trolls and sockpuppets are ubiquitous on the internet. not allowing personal attacks denies them one of their biggest weapons. They still have the strawman, mock outrage, denial of facts, and charts.
I, personally, had to mark a post of yours personal 3 times before it finally got deleted!
@PatrickMy posts are not showing up, why?
Ah, it was an auto-downgrade thing where there were enough comments marked personal to limit your privileges.
Who was marking them personal?
@Goran_K no, moderators should see all comments in moderation.
I'm not able to see the comments of "Aphroman" as I think he put me on ignore
why the fuck bother having mods
run off most all opposing viewpoints
I for one welcome opposing viewpoints. Haven't heard anyone make a decent opposing argument in a while though. Its all "fuck trump" or "republicans are KKK" or "white men are nazis". yeah, people with that level of arguments should be chased off
removed leon's comment as a personal distraction from this discussion. to leon, id be happy to have that discussion, but start a different thread. this one isnt for flame wars, its for improving pat.net
The rules here are pointless because they are not applied equally.
show us an example. I see you flame ad homs, then get mad when non ad homs are allowed to stay. your "this isnt fair" routine is getting tedious.
can we please eliminate this functionality? noone should be able to edit YOUR pat.net experience. If someone wants to mute their own experience, thats completely different. However, muting someone else's ability to view pat/net posts will destroy users ability to follow conversations and drive them from the site. We are down to a core 50... you dont want 25 of those 50 never seeing what the other 25 are discussing, unless you dont want discussions.
bitter Trumpublicans have run off most all opposing viewpoints
@Patrick, I agree. Aphroman blocking mods is him defacto circumventing the system to he can continue ad hom attacks on people.
I think at least a few left because they could no longer belittle and abuse other posters.
Onvacation saysI think at least a few left because they could no longer belittle and abuse other posters. Yes, some people get pleasure out of that. Don't want them around.
Yet, you allowed Aphroman sign on with a completely new screen name/profile (and deleted his old one, which led the pack with comments in Comment Jail), only so he could continue his ad hom attacks under this new profile?What's up with that?
Bullshit. It was the TDS flipouts that caused the ad hom ban, and THAT was literally given as the reason by TDSers that it was no longer "Free Speech" unless you could call everybody a retarded Trumptard scumbag five times in a post.
Yep--nobody left because they couldn't ad hom. They left because pat.net became a place where free speech was no longer welcome unless you are on the right team.
MrMagic saysYet, you allowed Aphroman sign on with a completely new screen name/profile (and deleted his old one, which led the pack with comments in Comment Jail), only so he could continue his ad hom attacks under this new profile?What's up with that?Can someone quote some of these supposed ad hom attacks from Aphro?
The Right is batshit crazy, and they’re antithetical to everything America was founded on. It’s pathetic
they left because having moderators only on 1 team is really not moderation at all.
Pretty much. Not to mention the most vile, racist comments were levied by those crying "free speech!"
LeonDurham saysYep--nobody left because they couldn't ad hom. They left because pat.net became a place where free speech was no longer welcome unless you are on the right team. they left because having moderators only on 1 team is really not moderation at all.
Although there is an extremely racist post title currently active on the home screen. But the author is on the right team so it's no problem.

Lol Libertarians are indistinguishable from Republicans Feel free to prove me wrong
I had my posts deleted. But I just learned to not adhom instead of taking it personally and quitting.
If you mean Hey N... police your own, the author is HEYYOU and he is on no teams other than his own
@Patrick why are you censoring my posts again? What is the excuse this time?
Rogue moderator coward with an axe to grind again?
Lol Libertarians are indistinguishable from Republicans
Being that the issue is deeply rooted in racism, as Paul says, why is it important to ignore such an obvious fact?Does pretending it doesn’t exist help somehow?
Aphroman saysBeing that the issue is deeply rooted in racism, as Paul says, why is it important to ignore such an obvious fact?Does pretending it doesn’t exist help somehow?1. The fact that stupid drug war influences minorities more does not mean that currently it is rooted in racism. It was (initially, at least for MJ-but not necessarily for other drugs), but now the prohibition machine is crushing everyone who is poor, as minorities are poorer, they suffer more. Cause here is not race, it is economics. I am sure Hollywood and Washington are snorting coke like crazy yet poor guy is going to jail.2. RP is R in name only as his voting record shows, and he run as Prez from Libertarian party many times. His voting record and views shows that L's are different from R's. Too bad R's redristricted him out of his district. Kind of similar to what D's did to Kucinich and Sanders.
Yet strong institutional forces have kept nearly every law enforcement professional association opposed to reform. Starting with the Reagan administration, police departments were encouraged to seize and sell property associated with drug busts, which significantly augmented their revenue. Between 2002 and 2012, law enforcement agencies collected about $1 billion from marijuana arrests, according to Justice Department data.
especially pharmaceuticals, because cannabis is such an inexpensive and effective medicine.
If you listen to what the Prohibitionist actually say, their main reason is to terrorize blacks and disempower the liberals
Go ahead and share you conspiracy theory though. Which major medication will marijuana replace?
Just wiping out the pain killer market would have a massive upheaval on the pharma industry.
Aphroman saysIf you listen to what the Prohibitionist actually say, their main reason is to terrorize blacks and disempower the liberalsYeah, White Supremacists pushed for tough sentences for drug dealers.
Liberals tend to rewrite history to fit their own narrative.
Can this marijuana extract be given for a few pennies per dose?
Also what about sports or just being able to give it to a kid in school?
There are varieties that don't get you nearly as high as what people would think. And if you actually NEED it daily, then you do build up a tolerance to the high.
people just wanting to get high. Getting high isn't bad though either.
I'm just saying I dont see the conspiracy to keep it down for money reasons... or perhaps there are negative monetary reasons for some corporations, but many other see huge $$$. This isnt some corporations vs the small man situation. Phillip Morris could make more than anyone if marijuana is legalized. https://hightimes.com/news/tobacco-companies-investing-cannabis/
My god if they could remove the "munchies" and perhaps the "stupid" from the high, it would be the perfect recreational drug.
When you say “get high”, what do you think you mean? The euphoric feeling? Generally there’s not much impairment with cannabis consumption.
