What happened to The Left?
Why did The Left get banned?
 
Dakar² Nov 28, 2006 11:37 AM
My guess is either because he was a joke account or a troll.

I wouldn't be surprised if the mods knew who he was, too.
 
Demonhood Nov 28, 2006 12:15 PM
joke account + troll = banned.
and yes, i do know who was behind it.
 
lpkmckenna Nov 28, 2006 12:22 PM
I figured as much. He was too over-the-top to be believed.
 
rickey939 Nov 28, 2006 12:24 PM
Just wait for "The Right"...
 
OreoCookie Nov 28, 2006 12:27 PM
… coincidentally that account has been banninated already. Apparently The Left and The Right share their internet connection ;)

So does that earn an infraction ?

Well, I mean for the individual and his other acccounts. :hmm:
Of course, the banninated nick got a HUGE infraction.

I know what you meant. And I still think its a given.
 
Dakar² Nov 28, 2006 02:47 PM
Heh, we need a public infraction log... :lol:

That couldn't possibly go wrong.
 
bstone Nov 29, 2006 07:39 AM
Interesting. I recall some months ago when Ca$h used "The Jesus". I thought it was funny.
 
SSharon Nov 30, 2006 05:11 PM
I don't see how you guys can all joke about this. The Left is probably dying of an iron or b12 deficiency. He was only calling out for help!

On second though, I won't miss him.
 
Kevin Dec 3, 2006 01:51 PM
What about "TheMiddle"

Does it exist?
 
OreoCookie Dec 3, 2006 06:51 PM
Nope, but don't give this individual any funny ideas ;)
 
besson3c Dec 3, 2006 07:18 PM
Are the mods allowed to have secondary nicks? OreoCookie, I think you should tell us that mods don't have any secondary nicks, and then create one called "TwoKey" and start using it. That would be pretty clever, and simultaneously awesome I might add...

Is The Left marden?
 
Rumor Dec 3, 2006 07:20 PM
I'd be interested in knowing who it was also.

bstone your sig takes up more than four lines of text, between its text and the breaks you have in there, especially at the bottom.

That's because of his location text, forcing this extra width...

Is it an issue?

However, Oreo gave all the accounts marden was using. Or had used in the past.

And it wasn't one of em.

Hmmm... That logic seems solid, but I'm not sure he gave those accounts after The Left had been banned.

I've listed all accounts that shared an IP with marden. Just to put speculations to rest: it's not his account and I hope me listing his other aliases put this endless and tiresome discussion `marden = abe = aberdeenwriter' to rest.

Beyond that, I'm not going to divulge any further clues as to who it is (I just wanted to avoid another marden = The Left discussion). If this member decides to come forward either in private or publicly, it's his/her decision.
 
Kevin Dec 4, 2006 07:01 AM
Hmm two people hide behind nicks.

One person gets ALL their accounts listed on this forum. Even made fun of a little bit for it. Wasn't even asked if it was ok.

But another member gets to remain anonymous and is let "To come forward either private or publicly" that it is his/her decision. And their wishes to remain anonymous are granted.

Do you not see some discrepancy here Oreo?

This is the non-consistancy I am referring to. Different rules for different people.

Do you guys not even see it when you do it?

I mean in the same post even. *sigh*

So lets be fair and tell us who said offender was. Or apologize to marden.

And please don't insult our intelligence by attempting to spin's marden's case as being different.
 
OreoCookie Dec 4, 2006 08:48 AM
No, I don't. The issue has been taken care off by another mod, so I won't interfere.

Also there were no harmful remarks in threads in which the person behind The Left has posted (which you have rightfully complained about in marden's case). So I was hoping you'd read this differently: I'm defending marden by telling everyone he's not behind this one. And I was making sure that people who have discussions about marden instead of with him can now be reprimanded. Otherwise suspicions would continue and derail future threads. Now, mods can tell people to cut it out when they bring up the old topic of marden's alter egos -- something that isn't the case here. In my opinion, the two cases are different.

So I'm puzzled as to why I should apologize to marden when I clearly said, he didn't do it. I could've said nothing earlier, too, and let suspicions mount again and again.
 
Kevin Dec 4, 2006 09:25 AM
When someone asked who marden was you posted this. After said person made it clear he didn't want anyone knowing.

Quote
My Moderator Control Panel tells me that the following users all have used the same IP as marden to post: abe, aberdeenwriter, marden, mojo2, reddirtgirl (who TH is reddirtgirl?). Coincidence?

When we asked who TheLeft was we got this

Why wasn't it marden's decision to come out or not?

Look up Demonhood's initial post, it's clear that he has taken care of the matter.
 
Kevin Dec 4, 2006 10:18 AM
Demon's actions doesn't explain why you would give one person's indentity up, but not another.

As a matter of fact, they have nothing to do with each other.
 
Dakar² Dec 4, 2006 04:37 PM
Well, over 50% of the forum knew marden was abe, so he wasn't really giving new information so much as confirming it.

Especially since marden called us liars. It's ok IMO to expose him.

Well that is good and all, but he also gave OTHER accounts we didn't know was marden.

Either way, it's just more examples of two different people getting different treatment.

Consistency be damned!

Once person deserves secrecy and another doesn't appearently.

Again these are poor excuses.

What is stopping the poster of "TheLeft" from doing it again?

We get it, people don't like marden.

That doesn't mean he should be treated differently. Hell I have no problems with giving out such info with people hiding behind other nicks.

There is no reason TheLeft should be protected when others aren't.

My issue isn't with marden's outage.

But with why are they protecting the person hiding behind "TheLeft" when others don't get such protection?
 
besson3c Dec 4, 2006 05:51 PM
OreoCookie,

Perhaps you could check to make sure that Kevin and Marden have different IPs?

I think maybe Kevin is Marden... (and vice versa).

Why are you intentionally derailing this thread?
 
turtle777 Dec 4, 2006 06:36 PM
I do agree. The Left should not be protected.
Nobody who uses doublicate accounts with the intent to fool others should be protected.
