Admin himself started that thread and now it´s gone. Why? I spent some time to contribute to that thread and I don´t think there was anything wrong with my posts.

 

Admin,

I think you owe us an explaination (at least). Why delete the thread you started yourself? Why not just lock it?

 

Yours awaitingly...

See also the captions to the photos in question.  The captions have rendered the photos meaningless now (for good or bad intentions) and either way the original photo was not taken with the intention of mockery (if you look at the rest of the work by that photographer and read his biography, this is clear). 

 

So,  those photos are obsolete . . . serve no purpose . . . don´t make any statement (any longer).  It would make sense for the poster to remove them and move on from this incident.

 

Just my opinion and only words I have to offer to the debate (now disappeared {#emotions_dlg.silenced})

I think spritzer went too far. However I still think those jokes were in poor taste. If a man had used those women as the butt of a joke I am sure the feminists on here would be jumping up and down by now.

If Lis deleted the photos that would mean she let a very angry person who started a ridiculous argument win. It´s already been shown the photos do not violate TC rules. Some might find them amusing, others quite contrary - but whether or not you like somebody´s personal photo is subjective. Besides, let´s not forget why and when these photos were uploaded. If I´m not mistaken it was after one of our debates on burkas. The pro-burka front was more than convinced it´s actually an outfit that lets women feel free. Why the sudden change of mind?

I absolutely agree with you..

It was a ridiculous and childish argument in the first place.

This was not a debate about burkas or tc rules..

Asking people not to draw, not to write, not to speak, not to talk is fascism. It does not matter where it comes from..

It can come from an angry crowd in pakistan with the demand ´not to publish cartoons´, it can come from an angry person who needs cold shower with the demand ´take down your burka picture´. They both are the same fascism..

Everybody needs to learn how to be tolerant and have some sense of humour.. !!!!

 I think everybody has a right to write what he/she thinks. And everybody has a right also not to agree. Not agreeing isn´t a crime but deleting a person who doesn´t agree is a crime against freedom of speech. Somebody must correct this mistake. Anyone can ask you for anything. It is not a crime unless they use power. Administration used power here.

Exactly..

She and some others ridiculously tried to lynch somebody´s right to put up a picture into her profile here.. Freedom of speech doe not mean you can "ban something because you dont agree with it"..

And that person took her anger into level of insult.. That is all..

This is an old trick. You make someone angry, then apply your admin powers by deleting posts as per wish, the user gets more angry and reaches out for the last resort - swearing and insulting. And then you can easily get rid of the unwanted user. Wink

 They provoked her and made her insult. They mocked her, deleted her messages. This is a provocation. But you know what the big provocation is? It is "mocking those poor women who want to get education". This was the biggest provocation. Spritzer witnessed how those poor girls and women live. She was in Afghanistan for a time. And she witnessed very bad things towards women. She helped them. This made her very sensible on that matter. She is an humanist. And I am proud of having such a friend. She doesn´t sit and talk like us but she goes and helps people. She defended her ideas but you provoked her. Administration wasn´t neutral on this matter. They must correct their mistakes.They are as guilty as spritzer. They must resign or give spritzer her membership back.

We have clear rules that personal insults are not allowed on this site and can result in account deletion. If someone continues to make personal attacks/insults against other members after being warned, we consider the option of account deletion. Otherwise this forum would be like a nuthouse that many of the complainers here would find not worth visiting. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech, just simple rules to keep order.

That is true, there was never full freedom of speech here and we never claimed there is. Racism is not allowed, personal insults are not allowed, swearing is not allowed etc. For some reason this makes some people uncomfortable.

 

One thing to keep in mind while waging such criticism is that TC is a private community site kept up mostly by volunteer efforts. It is not the job of the admins/mods here to untangle the mess created by nonsense, flammatory messages. We have a set of simple rules, not always followed perfectly, but used to keep the site decent while not putting lots of burden on the people maintaining this site.

I am not supporting deleting people here at all.. and I am not going to comment about the tricks..

But, the idea of ´ah this picture is an insult to this and that´ was as childish and anti everything  I stand for.. 

It is ok to put up your voice..it is ok to tell your ideas.. That is fine.. No problem at all.. 

But

- Is the picture offensive? NO

- Did you say it was? YES -you are entitled your opinion-

- Does that person HAS RIGHT TO KEEP THAT PICTURE -YES

- Then what? 

 

This is same as people in certain areas of istanbul coming and saying ´we dont like women wearing skirts ..so it should be banned´. Same as people going about  ´I dont like those cartoons. they should be banned´.. 

And the very same  people ´now´ realising the importance of freedom of speech..When trying to force people ´ah that picture  is offensive . take it down´ it was all right ..

can you see how fake it is to hear freedom of speech from them?

 You delete a whole topic on your own. Our all posts were deleted because of you. Nobody knows and decide on their own because you delete them. If you want to move a topic you must move it with all posts in it. But you delete them and move it. Some of you don´t even move but delete the whole topic. I am not sure will you delete this topic too. Should i have a copy of this topic. What is your advice?

 

I am here to help people and myself. In two months I translated lots of texts. But your undemocratic actions affects me badly. I lose my motivation. Please be mature enough and correct your mistake. This is about freedom of speech not about you. Do the right thing.

They must correct their mistakes.They are as guilty as spritzer. They must resign or give spritzer her membership back.

 

 You seem to have dismissed the insults that were hurled by her....continuously.  Provocation was not one sided here.  The fact is that spritzer didn´t like some pictures and wanted them removed.  When she didn´t get what she wanted she did not let the situation go and continued to push in an agressive and inappropriate manner.  She was asked to tone it down but refused. 

 

Administration has a right to ask someone to stop...no matter who they are and what side they are on.  I have been asked to tone down my comments in the past myself but I don´t take it personally and I don´t "ramp it up" when I am asked to tone it down! 

 

You don´t have a right to demand that anyone resign here or give someone´s membership back just as spritzer had no right to demand that pictures be removed.  You talk about freedom of speech but what about Elisabeths right to freedom of expression???  You and spritzer were not here when the pictures were originally posted so how can you judge her rational for posting them.  And whether or not she had a "reason" doesn´t matter.....she has a RIGHT!

 

You want to sanctify spritzer, that´s your right...but how do you know anything about the good deeds done by those that you are now vilifying?  Don´t condemn what you don´t know!

 

No one did any wrong to spritzer.  She took her own path and she obviously didn´t want to be here in the first place.

2. We are more tolerant towards occasional misbehavior of users who spend time and effort to contribute to this site. theHandsom did some real contributions to TC as opposed to some users whose only activity is yelling around.

You are mixing things up just to support your point. If someone swears to your mom or wife, that is dealt with as a personal attack and not as a provocation. That is reason for potential account deletion, with or without warning.

 Let spritzer defend herself. You can return her to defend herself for a little time. Are you brave enough to do this?

You are not talking to a 5 year old. I don´t get all pumped up by a comment like "are you brave enough". She insulted people, got warned, and the next day made some nasty personal attacks and got deleted. There is nothing to defend or explain.

 Some of admins and members provoked her countless times when she was chatting with istanbulluguy. She didn´t answer them. Ask admins if you want. Let her defend herself.

 Look, admin said it all when he said this is a private site and he owns it.  Whether you agree or not, admin has the right to decide how this site is run. 

You (collectively) can make your own decision....you stay and play nice or you flame out...like spritzer did.  OR you act as a mature adult and make the decision that "this is just not the place for me" and walk away with dignity and grace.  The choices are really quite simple. 

Spritz made her choice...you make yours.

Gokuyum, the reasons for deleting spritzer have been explained multiple times at this point, and it has been explained to you that ´provocation´ is not considered by this site an excuse to break forum rules. I see no point in engaging in further discussion about this.

Well, the problem didn´t start with deleted messages or threads. You should have some background of the issue before making judging statements about it.

 

This post was for handsome. not necesarily about spritzer. I didnt know what spritzer wrote.

I just hate the idea of deleting things so easily, it shows zero respect for people who participate in discussions. Suddenly posts disappear and then users.

You shouldn´t have deleted a person who criticized you. And even you were the one who was wrong. Finding these pictures funny is the same thing finding funny a picture of man was eaten by a lion too.

She got angry when she could not get what she wanted..

She started to use insulting language..she got her replies..she was warned to tone down..

She knew she would be deleted if she did not..

She could have  apologized  and shown grace and toned it down..But she did not..

Gokuyum, I think you can´t see the difference between criticism and personal insults. As a matter of fact, i have no idea what insults Spritzer posted but I trust admins they had basis to terminate her membership.

 

On this very site we´ve had millions of arguments and nobody has ever been deleted simply because they didn´t agree with someone or because they found somebody´s ideas ridiculous. The only rule is not to insult other members personally.

 

I believe most members have been warned at least once or had their posts deleted - they had all the right to express their resentment via PM to the admins rather than continuing in public.

 

If I remember correctly, all personal matters should be dealt with the same way, ie via PMs. If you find somebody´s PMs insulting, you may mark their messages as spam, choose to ignore this person or report the message to the admins.

 

It has never happened that a person was deleted without warning. However, if despite warnings you continue to behave in a way admins found unruly, then you have to face  consequences. It´s actually quite simple.

 

I understand you are not happy about your friend having been deleted. As you can see, you´re free to say it in public. You like only those that agree with you - fine. Others, like myself, do not dislike a person only because they disagree. I must say I´ve enjoyed all discussions here and I really appreciate the input of people of other opinions. I might not agree with them, but I still value and like them.

 Everybody has a right to say what they want unless they use force like the administration did. Having rules and performing them don´t make anybody right. Those rules may be unjust or or they can be performed unjust. Don´t forget there were rules in Nazi German too. But they had also a dictator dictated everything too.

Don´t forget the rules you compare to Nazi Germany are not imposed on anyone. Deciding to join TC, you learn and either accept the rules or you don´t.

 

And again, Spritzer was deleted not because she didn´t like Elisabeths pictures but because she used personal insults.

 

Would you like TC admins to allow personal insults on this site? I doubt it...

Exactly..

I agree what you are saying..

Everybody has right to say what they want (of course there are rules but lets ignore them for the time being). No one has complained about it..

what did she say? ´she wanted those pictures removed´  SHE HAS RIGHTS TO SAY THAT

And the person who put up the pictures inthe first place rejected. SHE HAS RIGHTS TO REJECT that..

That is all..

Why did she insist? why did she not stop insisting? why did she take this up to the level of insulting? 

Nothing to do with dictatorship at all.. If you are against the forum rules, say so and ask for a change..

I am not sure if he is the weaker or not..

But his and spritzer´s argument was wrong in the first place..

´I find this offensive, you have to remove it´ this is not a winning argument.

Too much bla bla about a picture that was supposed to be a joke. I didn´t think it was super funny, but humor is personal. There was no comment on the freedom, or anything like that of the burka´d women, so the discussion was pointless.

I don´t want to argue anymore. I think spritzer will come back with a new nick. She can defend herself. Bye.

 

I suggest that she reads the forum rules next time (when starting an account you agree to follow our rules). One of the rules says that if you were deleted for breaking the rules, you can return once more, but if you continue to break the rules and end up deleted again, you can´t return again.

Only once i skimmed through that thread yesterday and the last post i saw was from girlegirl containing heavy personal insults to spritzer. If spritzer deleted for personal insults in forum, girlegirl must be deleted too with same reason. Just my understanding...

 

 

You know what (and sorry for the delayed response but I was in meetings this afternoon), if admin feels that I should be deleted for stating I thought spritzer was being an arrogant bully, then so be it.   I can guarantee you I won’t whine to my friends about it.   I would accept as my own responsibility for my actions and comments.   I know the rules here.

 

What I would point out the difference between spritzer and I.  And that is that I don’t attack just because I disagree with someone.   I read their tone and respond in kind so that I can be sure I am at a level that person will understand.

 

Am I always right in how I respond, absolutely not.  Will I tone it down if asked to…..absolutely.  Spriter chose her own fate.

Your posts are still here, so obviously it is not negative opinions that is deleted.

 

As for the insults, you don´t see the deleted messages so you don´t know the full extent of the things said and done after multiple warnings.

 

Come on admin. My posts in the deleted thread are gone now and I don´t think there was anything wrong with them. I spent some time on them and you deleted the whole thread (as strange as it seems it was started by yourself) so I feel like you have stolen my time. You should give us an explaination at least why you have done so.

 

Why delete the thread you started yourself? Why not just lock it? I am curious.

 If the rules were always followed in this case then sev yanliz/ bos sevdim/ nefretebilir would no longer be here but ohh she is .. The rules seem to vary a bit from person to person as far as I can see

I start to believe she is not a person. She might be a computerized  chat programme which picks up a word from the previous poster and makes a sentence with random words.

I know most of you guys are rightly agitated with her but she is quite funny really. And I am sure she does not know the meaning of  what she is typing..

We deleted this user twice and now that she may be back with a new account we are being accused of treating her in a privileged way. This is a really interesting way of looking at things.

 My point was people (admins) are aware that she is back as a new user. so in line with the rules she would be deleted, as she has already been back twice.

We just need to be sure that it is the same user as sev yalniz. We don´t want to be deleting the wrong user based on the suspicion that it is a previously deleted user´s new account. What convinces you so certainly that nefretebilir is sev yalniz, share that information and if it makes sense the account will be deleted.

I know you weren´t asking me - but I would bet my life on the fact that not one person on the site who has come across ´sev´ in the chatroom would have the slightest doubt that ´nefretebilir´ is the same person.  I even thought so as soon as I saw the name and looked at the profile - without needing to see her in the chat room!

 1. Just a LIR said every person in chat room has noticed the same thing nearlly a minute after speaking with her.

 

2. she says exactley the same odd comments and insults as sev.

 

3. she is unable to write a sentence that makes any sense

 

4. Her english structure is so obvious and unique that even if someone tried they would not be able to match it so closely..( nothing is understood)

 

5. all you need to do is spend one second with her and it is as clear as day.

 

6. she discusses same odd topics. Dogs- earthquakes and the quote of Miss Sev is as true as Nefretebilir´s

I have come to recognise sev fairly rapidly under which ever aliase she uses.  There are a few things that sev has said when I was in the chat when non one else was there with us and whenever she sees me she trips herself up and I know it is her.

 

You could block her IP adress, it would solve the problem once and for all.

We don´t have the ability to block IP addresses at this point. It can be implemented relatively easily but I am not sure how useful it will be because you just need to restart your modem to get a new IP.

If having a dramatic life is an excuse to call someone a prostiture, a dog, that our heads are filled with fesses, to tell someone that he or she has taken pleasure in the death of peopel in the earthquake then maybe I should start speaking like sev.  I tried to understand her but to no avail. 

 

I have had a hard life but I do not act like sev, I have to much dignety and respect to do so.  I took offense when she called me a prostitute, I took offense when she called me a dog but I tried very hard to stay calm with her.

 

The straw that broke the camel´s back, Gokuyum, is when sev told me that I took pleasure in the deaths of peole in the earthquake.  I lost friends in the earthquake in question. 

 

So no, having a dramatic life does not permit you to treat others the way sev has and does not exempte you from following the rules implemented on TC.
