Below is the random thought titled "Kids These Days". Be aware that these thoughts may be based on opinion, and my opinion might not agree with yours. Also, the thought below may be based on mood, time of day, or any number of other factors. Please keep this in mind.
Just moments ago I deleted "Flamez" account from my forum. He actually requested that I delete the account because it seems he was unhappy with how I was moderating his posts. There were two of his posts that I deleted, a duplicate of another post (probably an accident), and an "announcement" he made in the "Electronics/Power Supply" forum about the search engine Google. The duplicate was obviously deleted to keep clutter down, and the "Google announcement" was deleted for several reasons. For one, it was not posted to the proper forum. Two, announcements should only be made by the forum owner. And three, everyone already knows about Google, so it is rather pointless to announce it.
Long story short, for the past few days he has been, for a lack of a better word, whining, about how he thought this treatment was unfair. I have justified it to him several times, but it seems that he is unable to handle the fact that two of his posts were deleted off of a small Internet forum. So after complaining for a few days, he asked that I delete his account. This I have done.
Of course, one must consider that he is only 17 years old, and most seventeen year olds are not necessarily known for their maturity. But you would think that after 17 years in this world, most would have realised that they do in fact not always get their way, and sulking and whining about it will do nothing to change that fact. It is also worth mentioning that this kid is a "web designer", as shown on his website. I wonder if he acts this way when his clients are not happy with his work?
For those interested (and I can't imagine that many are), the topics I am referring to can be found here:
Have you been...
please read Aaron
The deleted topic is, of course, deleted.
Anyone else thing I was treating him unfairly?
|true kids these days are gay unless they a rocker like me but none of that gay rock green day and shit i mean ozzy osbourne and guns n roses led zep and more guys that wouldnt take a second to whoop your ass!|
|ah...yes I remember that kid. I was jumping back into the forums and I remember him asking you that =) I cant remember my user name though so I'll have to make another If you can trace my IP address back to my user name feel free to delete it.|
|some of you people can't spell!!!!
(Editor's note: And many can't capitalize properly either.)
|kid's these day's i guess are nothing but spolit rotten brat's. the parent'd let them get away with what ever they want. God what a pin some kid's are.|
|kids they make me extremely nervous i am scared of kids really when i see them they make me run away and hide from them forever the way they act with some people.|
|Editor this is the best site ever.|
|hey whas goin on guys....jus thought id tell u all that ur the biggest nerds in the world for doin this online message postin
(Editor's Note: And what does that make you for replying?)
|well what can i say, its pretty sad when a kid thinks that another kid thats older then him by like 3 years (me being 15)is an immature pussy and i think that u had a full right to delete him cause well after all it is ur site|
|I think you did the right thing by throwing him out. I don't know how grownups feel about kids, because I'm a kid myself (14 years), but I would newer do such kind of stuff to Aaron, just that smiley with those fuck fingers....! And your coulor scheme is fine!|
|It appears that his website has moved here.|
|shutup no things for kids you are really big dog|
|Just to clear up any confusion: I pay for commercial cable service, which provides me with a static IP address and allows me to run servers.
As for the colour scheme, it seems that certain video card and monitor combinations can cause weirdness. I hear a few complaints every now and then, but on most machines it works.
|You remain the moderator.you also deserve the right to delete or edit whatever posts from whoever.to me i feel you treated him fairly by going out of your way to explain things to him extensively.|
|i went to that kids' website: what a load of crap.i admit i haven't made a website myself, but if my gran made one it would be better than that. i think your site is pretty damn good. its always the first site i come to and i am still exploring it. you have helped me a few times now, and my go-kart is in production. that kid looks like a bell-end, and i think i will send him an e-mail to tell him.|
