We at the Flat Earth Society appreciate your input. Because of the serious nature of your allegations, we cannot make a determination without appropriate earnest measures. I will summon the high council on the next blood moon, as is tradition regarding such serious accusations.  We will meet in our secret lair and weigh the alleged offenses against your entitled and rude behaviour, of which even globularists have tried to make you aware. When we have sipped sufficient champagne and supped our fill of the caviar, we will make our decision and contact you.

PS -- stop spamming the complaint feature.

You got a response. We have already agreed to brave the dangers of the blood moon to convene and discuss this serious matter.  What more could you possibly want of us?

@pongo I'm still waiting for an answer as to why it's allowed, i've presented blatant proof, I'm waiting on my complaint response and confirmation the moderators have been advised accordingly

You misunderstand the situation here. You don't pay for our services, I am not beholden to you, nor is anyone else. I'm not sure why you have this perception that I must answer any question that you put forth. Furthermore, no one is under any obligation to distribute advisories to moderation at your discretion.

I fear that our open and friendly culture has incorrectly lead your to assume that the Flat Earth Society is some sort of user-driven service industry with a "customer's always right" motto and a "give them what they want for the sake of future patronage" model.

I've been ignoring your query because I felt like I've already answered it and, quite frankly, this whole topic is asinine.

Hey, I told you all yonks  ago that I can sort this forum out. But you still choose to ignore me!
His arguments and logic are the worst that I have ever encountered….. It is so bad that a sort of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm of pish and crawls inanely up the topmost pinnacle of posh. It is rumble and bumble. It is flap and doo.

ok, so the flat earth society has no moderation?

well your two worst moderators who are rude, antagonising, petty and childish, are banning people for doing the same things as they do

no point calling them moderators as they're not moderating anything, they're picking and choosing who to ban dependent on how much 'they don't like'

of course you're under no obligation to me, you're under obligation to ALL members since you've decided to have moderators

there's forum rules if you wasn't already aware, and your moderators are constantly breaking them

you're then making excuses FOR their actions

No.  I am serious. 

As long as globalists are trolling this forum, complaining about unfair moderation is petty.

in what way are globalists trolling?

globe earthers state facts and present evidence to back up their facts, that's not trolling

flat earthers claim globe earthers are wrong, but never present any evidence, they ignore direct questions and instead just attempt to belittle globe earthers (like you have above)

well this is a DEBATE forum, excuse us that actually provide irrefutable evidence and ask for a DEBATE

again, ever heard of irony?

Every post that contradicts the premise "The earth is flat." is trolling. 

All contrarians should be permanently banned, in my opinion.  Who cares if a moderator "breaks" a rule??  I do not.

but there's no evidence of a flat earth, and an abundance of a globe earth

research = evidence

I'd advise you do some research instead of simply taking someone's word for it (I know this as anyone who cross examines evidence comes to the same conclusion, that the earth is EVIDENTLY a globe)

trolling, haha says the guy admitting he's wanting globe earthers off the forum (in fact, respect on that front, at least you've got the balls to admit it)

Moderators can do anything. It's not a new thing. They can break rules any time and admins won't care. Get use to it.

Take jroa for instance. He is the master of shitposting, insulting, personal attacks, derailing, trolling etc etc and yet he is a moderator. This process continues for months and has been reported multiple times.

See, even in this very topic, rules are broken.

these are the (apparently) 'strictly enforced' rules
http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=43826.msg1086418#msg1086418

5, 7 and 8 are regularly abused by both Ski and Jroa

so I followed the rules and did what rule 10 told me to (post concerns in here)..
but it seems like instead, I was ambushed by the people who are actually supposed to be dealing with these kinds of issues

this isn't a public forum, it's a closed forum for flat earth believers only, the fact the mods act like a dictatorship is the evidence to back up my claim

from the guy who inboxed me in my first week telling me how impressed he was with my comments towards Jroa and how you can't wait for his head to spin

times change eh?

the 'strictly enforced rules' being even loosely enforced would be a start

What do you mean? There is no money being made from this website, and John Davis has no control over the money other people make with their youtube videos or books. Admitted... like it's some big secret?

I think John was referring to the small amount of money which is made off of official memberships every couple of years when they occur.

Which is not enough to cover the cost of running this website, and is donated to charity. Johnorbital is always looking for something evil.
