Ban gnu_ponut and 365degrees for sabotaging the chat wiki for the umpteenth time to point to their own chat room that poses as raddle's official room

Submitted by ziq in meta (edited )

https://raddle.me/wiki/chat2

This page was created by a volunteer to fix some broken links. We were waiting for the admins to move it over to w/chat when it was hijacked by the 2 most persistent trolls I've ever come across.

This is the like the 10th time they've done this. The chat wiki had to be locked so only admins could edit it because of their antics last time:

https://raddle.me/f/meta/34379/lock-the-chat-wiki-please-it-s-being-sabotaged-constantly-to

GNU_PONUT is an empty account because this shitheel purged all their posts a while back and switched to using the anonymous accounts (to troll me, mainly).

/u/365degrees has been attacking raddle on reddit whenever anyone mentions us (and starting threads to warn people from coming here), trolling me here non stop for months, and hijacked our meta matrix channel, filled it with spam and forced us to abandon it. Their ban is long overdue.

The text says #raddle.me:matrix.org

But the chucklehead twins changed the links to point to #raddle:matrix.org, which used to be our address before they hijacked it and a dozen other raddle related addresses to all point to their anti-raddle troll channel that they created together with ShiningWing.

When an admin gets around to updating w/chat, please use the version of w/chat2 from before these trolls sabotaged it. No telling what other links they've altered:

https://raddle.me/wiki/_revision/89df03d6-85d4-4bae-a7f9-d0479151e6b4

Their fake raddle channel has been used to plot hacking the site and to dox me:

This is a straight up malicious act and only the latest in a long line of attacks on the site by these 3 trolls.

Support. They should go make their own site at this point. If only Raddle ran on free software that anyone could download to start their own alternative...

Support. They've been harassing you ever since you admitted to using alts. If they really think you're bad, they should make their own site.

Thank you. It's maddening that me making a public apology and stepping down as an admin to make amends to the 3 of them would lead to months of non-stop attacks from them.

ok, I'm banning them because of the doxxing, harrassment, smear capaigning, and threats of technical attack against the site. I didn't ban them for making changes to w/chat2 because the revision history is easy to access.

ziq is not just an ordinary member, they are the host. If you were truly an ally to Anarchism, you could find better targets (read: fash) online than some Anarchist that you don't agree with. I think of ziq as being like the owner of an Anarchist bookstore. They are forced to put their neck on the line to legally hold space for Anarchism in a system owned by capitalists. They are the ones that have to pay the rent to evil landlords. The community isn't defined or controlled by u/ziq, but I think blatant attacks against them certainly should be taken very seriously. u/ziq has made mistakes in the past, and owned up to it, but the attacks never stopped.

I hesitated to make this action because I have butted heads with u/365degrees in the past, and didn't want this to be personal in any way. I wanted to believe that we could find a way to get along if we actually had some solidarity for our comrades.

After reviewing the evidence and support for the banning, I can see they are clearly intent on being a malicious force against u/ziq and the community here. I'm sad that this is what it has come down to.

ok, I didn't ban them as I want to look into it further, but I updated the w/chat. I included the f/mylittlepony room because I don't really see a problem with having a "my little pony" channel if people want it.

I didn't realize they were adding a pony room, I just assumed they were up to no good since they're one of the 3 founders of the other raddle room and updated the wiki minutes after the other kid.

Support - altering the matrix link is unacceptable.

Simple solution. Lock the wiki... Fuckit all changes must be community approved.

ziq wrote

The chat wiki is locked because of them. But to make changes we need to make an unlocked chat2 page and wait for an admin to move it to the locked wiki. They hijacked it while we were waiting, their goal was to fool the admins.

ziq wrote

update

https://raddle.me/wiki/_history/chat2

Someone edited the wiki to add both rooms... So /u/365degrees came in and again edited it to remove the official room, and make their room the only room, and added the note: "The Raddle room people actually use."

They did this same thing last time we went through all this, after I agreed to let them link to their room under the main room, they continued to remove the official room from the wiki, forcing me to ask it be locked.

Can I just say what the actual fuck is up with you folks? Like, fuck, I wish I had the energy you seem to be able to spend on internet slap fights.

Any attack on me is an attack on raddle. It sounds silly but it's the truth. I have no choice but to drain my energy defending myself from their trolling. Their claims about me are used (by them) to try and kill the whole site.

Just by repeating their bullshit over and over it becomes part of the public record whether it's true or not. Like how they've convinced everyone I used to use my alts to abuse them, which is total bullshit.

And they have all their energy because they're teenagers that spend their entire day in chat rooms attacking anyone outside their support group. This is all they have to do. Online they get to be like the popular kids at their schools.

GaldraChevaliere wrote

Nah, I get that aspect of it. I'm just fucking impressed that they have this much time to blow on picking a fight with you. Honestly I do think it'd be better for your health not to just engage with them at this point though if you don't have to, putting people like that beneath my notice did a lot for my own. Like, shit though. I'm usually just too tired for this shit. I'm pretty young myself, I've just got too much shit going on to have time to actively fuck with someone over months-old drama. Your alt thing was a serious problem, but you stopped doing it and afaik most folk agree you've been better? The last time I paid attention to any of this shit was in like April.

ziq wrote

I stopped using alts to speak my mind about shitty politics and now I just use this account. So from their perspective probably nothing has changed.

Support.

Edit: Why don't we just go ahead and up the age limit to 18? Probably needs a new thread for folks to chime in, but perhaps getting everyone on the same maturity level might alleviate some of the nonsense. Just a thought.

2

ziq wrote

Emma pointed out to me the other day that the age where people are considered legally responsible for their own actions in most of the world (criminal responsibility) is 16.

If you made the proposal and I voted for 18, I think I'd be doing it purely because of my poor experience with these particular kids, which isn't a very good reason to make changes to the ToS... So I think I'd personally have to abstain from voting because of my bias.

supernice wrote (edited )

I'm not so worried about the legally responsible bit tbh (though I see how you would be, and I don't blame you), most people here are probably on one government list or another for whatever country they reside in. My desire to raise the age limit is purely based on quality of interactions. People mature significantly between those seemingly two short years.

Since there's no way to really enforce something like that online, I guess it doesn't matter much. Just kind of sick of seeing so much petty shit going on.

ziq wrote (edited )

Honestly I was just as immature at 16 as I was at 18. And I'm probably about 6 years less mature now than most 35 year olds lol. Why else would I care so much what people on a website say about me.

I know better than anyone how difficult it is to deal with spited teenagers, but at the same time I'd rather these young ppl learn about politics from us than reddit creeps.

If you made the proposal it would likely pass but idk if our annoyance is a good enough reason to shut out all baby radicals. We had at least one that was a great user. /u/PainlessEphemera.

And degrees used to do a lot for the site before they found out I was Defasher and had been slandering transhumanism / supporting anticiv (as ziq I only made postciv arguments, which are much more pallatable to them).

supernice wrote

This is true. I guess I'm sounding a bit ageist right about now. If anyone here is offended by that, my apologies, not my intention at all.

Anyways, I'm not going to push it. But dammit, kids these days...lol (always wanted to say that!)

Not sure if we count 365degrees since the proposal is directly about them, but since it doesn't change the result I added them to the count anyway.

The proposal currently passes by my count.

I don't see the harm in adding a channel for f/MyLittlePony. What did gnupie do to you?

(btw I oppose my own banning if I can do that ;)

ziq wrote (edited )

It should also be noted that the majority of users just called for raddle's age requirement to be raised to 18. 365degrees admits to being under that age.

I don't know that we should make it official policy to restrict the site to 18+, but the exception is cases where the user has repeatedly shown themselves to be immature and disruptive.

Cheeks wrote

Absolutely disagree with raising the age requirement to 18+.

The point of an age requirement is simply to protect you legally as the domain name holder. Outside of that there are plenty of 16 and 17 year Olds that either have or will find this place to be their only real refuge from the rest of society. I'm not going to shut them out for an easy solution.

I want to ban them for being a malicious fucking troll that has been attacking raddle on reddit, raddle and matrix for months.

For constantly trolling me and forcing me to spend my energy fighting off their toxic attacks and harmful accusations, making the whole site unpleasant and filled with hostility as a result.

For hijacking two of raddle's chat rooms.

For hijacking the wiki to point to a chat room (that you're a proud member of) that is openly set up for hating on me. They're so obsessed with me they even put my name in the topic of the room. A room where I get doxed and where hacking raddle to delete the database to spite me is considered good fun.

What does any of this have to do with 'disagreeing with me?'

Wtf.

To be fair, the highest voted "support" was from an account that hadn't posted for 7 months.

Not saying this to dismiss the problem of users attempting to doxx and harass you, which is serious, just that "not posting for 3 months" isn't a reason to dismiss anyone's contribution to a thread.

ziq wrote (edited )

Yeah. She doesn't post much but she's done a lot for the site behind the scenes. She's a mod on reddit and has always stuck her neck out for the site. I did tell her about this thread.

She's also seen their slandering of the site first hand because she's a mod and has to deal with their trolling on reddit. Their endless attacks on the site got our link removed from r/@'s sidebar, which has directly caused us to stop getting new anarchist users, and led to much more work from the existing users being needed to keep the site alive without the constant infusion of new blood that link used to provide us.

some edits:

  • every other day raddle becomes worse than tankie twitter
  • it doesnt matter which room is which, it isnt apart of this site, and doesnt dictate anything on this site
  • dale has been nice to me, whereas ziq has historically been manipulative and is currently hostile towards me

tankie twitter

their room was literally created by a tankie...

Yes it is. Raddle's chat rooms are prominently linked on the site and are an important part of the community. But they're also responsible for the toxic pony clique forming and all these months of attacks I've had to deal with.

dale has been nice to me

great reason to throw me under the bus, and just proves how damaging the clique is.

whereas ziq has historically been manipulative

...They say while supporting a two faced troll that keeps trying to manipulate people into joining their hateful chat room by hijacking the wiki. And brigading this thread from that chat room to bring all their raddle-hating comrades out of the woodwork to ensure they can keep up their epic troll campaign for another 4 months.
