    Burntan's complaint

    As I had said elsewhere, I should not be explaining my moderation ... simply because it takes too long and I don't have the time. But for this one time, since it is the season for fellowship, charity, generosity and goodwill ... I shall oblige to explain a bit and give away some over ripe (overdue) bananas

    Let me tell you flers this ... I DO NOT think Burntan is a cybertrooper. I never said he was and I never supported anyone saying he was. I believe a real cybertrooper is very well trained and he'd be properly supported by a team of expert troopers to strategise the war of words. Sadly, burntan's performance would have failed him from the trooper class I think he was too crude and unpolished.

    And you bunch of trooper-haters were also all wrong. You guys can't identify a real cybertrooper even if he sat down for coffee and had currymee with you face-to-face. The bunch of you deserve my over-ripe bananas for intimidating poor 'ol Burntan.

    Burntan was getting frustrated with non-moderation from the mod. So he started his own demonstration. He was learning from past observations the technique of getting his "enemies" into the plantation by simply popping up comments in various threads, knowing very well the perpetrators cannot resist needling him. By Burntan's expectations, the mod should then issue bananas for all the flers that broke the rules, so to say. And we have a bunch of willing and silly people falling for his trap. I suggest you blokes knock each other on the head for falling for it. Why were you flers entertaining him?

    Why were threads moved to Chatterbox?

    Burntan thought I was selectively picking on him. But did he (or anyone else) see why threads were moved to chatterbox?

    Election is coming, eventually. And you flers were (and still are) giving the same rhetorics. Let me remind you that I removed the Arus Politik in 2008. I kept reminding you folks that this is not a political forum. Frankly I find the political tirades very boring and repeatitive. Nothing but mind-numbing stuff. If you were to take a hammer and hit your head long enough, it will get numb ...

    I was simply removing the numbing source and moving it to Chatterbox. it just so happens Burntan was pushing his politics. Too bad. Other politically inclined threads have also moved there. I may miss some since I can't be checking all but I can assure you I will continue to do so. If the deluge comes on (simple English = if there are too many political threads to handle), I will simply remove all of them from the Forum.

    You want it to stay? Just stop posting the same comments. It is time you flers learnt to debate properly and stop repeating the same dreary stuff

    disclaimer

    As I have declared umpteen times, I am apolitical and I do not go gaga over politics. As far as I am concerned we vote in the politician whom we think can deliver the goods. Alternatively, we could also not vote the politician whom we think would not deliver.

    Simple. No political issues. No hate. Let the politicians explain themselves on Judgement Day (if you have a judgement day in your religion). Sure, some of you will disagree but I am stating a disclaimer here ....

    I do not have to favour Barisan or the Alternative Front. Although some of you express your political preferences and I allow it to exist, it does not mean i support your believes. Remember this is a Forum.

    Burntan thinks I am supportive of the Opposition Front. And in declaring that Burntan is not a cybertrooper, some of you would think I support the Barisan. Those of you who make any conclusion has forgotten that I am the mod and referee here. How would you like the soccer referee to support MU or Chelsea? The referee wouldn't be in the field. The fact that I am on the field, I will be apolitical.

    Nuff said

    I congratulate your integrity in declaring your intentions and volunteering to be equally chastised. However, I take my bananas seriously. I spent a lot of time last night reading all the related posts to pick the ones who were attacking him. On a glance, anyone would see a mob attacking burntan. But on closer scrutiny, I saw a lot of comments but not directly attacking burntan. You were one of those who kept away from personal attacks or slander. Hence you don't qualify for the banana. Same for currymee who "thought" he too committed the offense.

    What is it, you getting lonely or what? And what about fighting for justice? Hey man, this is not a fight and what justice? Are we under siege? What you flers believe about burntan being a cybertrooper is not necessarily true. A believe is something in the mind. I don't share the same view. i m not convinced. He may support the other party but is that wrong to have his own opinion? When did this forum become PKR property?

    You guys better get it straight

    It's time Chang had to act, tho abit too late. I was away on 'holiday' for a while. When I hit the forum, and saw this attack, I thought it was really uncalled for. Some just wanted it, but I did not see the reason for such attacks. Chang did the right thing to keep the forum cool. It's time forumers here learn how to behave

    Just to keep the records straight - things would not be out of hand if Burntan had not decided to go around (in the early stage) "provoking thoughts" with curt, short one-liners and irritating questions in almost every single thread and posts.

    For those who PM me as to how it all started - here is the thread where it all started: Stupids Drivers Still Aplenty .... http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...ad.php?t=33885

    Granted that Burtan decided to try and make "peace" (see thread "Please forget about who am I - http://www.usj.com.my/bulletin/uploa...ad.php?t=33943 ) and even the senior forumers were agreeable to it ....

    Personally, I too withdrew from engaging him (see post below and after advice from KWChang and other senior forumers) but believe me, he really knows how to push a person to the limit .... Different forumers have different threshold limit is all I can say ...

    Remember if you PROVOKE people, others also can PROVOKE BACK just as much or worse .... shalom

    You should consider adopting a STIMULATING AND PROMOTING THOUGHTS and DISCUSSIONS APPROACH rather than PROVOCATION ....
    PEACE TO ALL, MERRY XMAS ...
