after a few emails back and forth the mod, Josh, said
For some random user with no pattern of behavior, obnoxious might not push it over the threshold, no. You are not some random user with no pattern of behavior on this. We have warned you to cut this shit out if you want to continue being; I am not going to go into detail with you on it again. Just knock it off.
regarding my comment in this
more below the fold.
here's my comment. the first part was deleted, and then i posted it again because i thought it might have been deleted because it was too flippant, and if i provided more context they'd let it stand:
what was wrong with this comment?
Expecting a drink that's not watered down, without an extraordinary wait seems perfectly fair to me.
this is female privilege.
[the comment above was deleted without explanation, i'll try to give more context.]
my experiences at many bars have been poor service, and when ordering cocktails, watered down drinks. at a bar everyone's money is worth the same, but if you're more attractive you'll get served quicker and get a stronger drink in a (at least subconscious) effort by the bar tender to get the client to like them. if we assume that most bar tenders are male, and since the vast majority of men are straight, this would mean women have a privilege in that respect.
you may not like the fact that your favorite minority group has at least one privilege, but the fact still remains.
i sent a message using the contact form, and got this response:
It was an obnoxious "yeah, well, women get away with some stuff too" sidebar. You have a history of injecting obnoxious "yeah, well, what about..." sidebars into threads. We've talked to you about this stuff a ton. Don't do it.
to which i replied:
since when has "obnoxious" been grounds to delete comments? my comment was a lot more substantive than "yeah, well, women get away with some stuff too". was it actually flagged? or is it just a mod thing?
and then he said the thing above the fold.
you all have different views than me about substantive all the time, but could we all agree that comments should be deleted or not based on the content of the actual post/comment?
