Hola Hola! What is this?
Best, a player most of us know for quite a while (as the player ´nosy´) is accused of being an antisemite!
DonDK accused Best of antisemitic speech in the lobby. In the same post he indicated that moderators don´t act towards racism as they should, as there is some ´on going favorism´ from moderators, especially me, towards players like best. He suggested it is maybe because we both are German, which indicates a certain attitude with the history the Germans have and I and other mods and admins are antisemitic as well in tolerating Best. Aha.
Well indeed, I pull the reins in rather late, nobody gets muted, kicked or banned for a little spamming, a fuck here and there or some anti-female remark.
Indeed some players even asked me, why I do not ban Adriano or Song-Jiang for attacking me under the belt. It is because I can seperate being a player attacked from being a mod. The last stupid comment I can remember was Attila calling me a chick with a dick. So what?
I am not as freeminded as RIPPE, but I share his dislike of censorship. There are only two exceptions: Racism and homophobia.
I dont like players giving themselves nicks like Hitler, or Ethan calling someone nigger. I saw Xuul warning AdolfHitler to change his nick immediately or risking being kicked. And indeed being German with a more than average interest in history I humbly accept the responsibility comming with that heritage. I surely defy any antisemitic remarks.
So what about Best?. Which are the evicences?
DonDK said he saw best talking in an antisemitic way in the lobby.
Attila (Adriano) seconded to that.
Any other evicences? I talked to Xuul about that and he confirmed that best in one game (not to be misunderstood as constantly) called someone a jew (not a lying jew). Xuul, as admin and witness talked with best about that and best directly apologized and distanced himself from that remark, so Xuul told me. Xuul, being admin and a well known, fair sportsman saw no need for action.
What about me?
My own opinion about best? I know him for more than 3 years now both as best and nosy. I never read anything racist or antisemitic from him as I havent from the vast majority of the players here. And I was online enough the last years. Also in his style of playing he seems to be a fair character, eager to win, but not unable to loose.
What do I know about Attila (Adriano)? Ok we all know A/A. Sorry man, but you are a troubleshooter, very eloquent with words. You guys know, Best complained a few times to me some months ago that Attila is constantly whipering to him, calling him a nazi, fag (?) and whatever and that he felt mobbed and stalked. Hmmm.
And DonDK? You are a very good player, having played you once, but registered only recently in this lobby (31.12.2010). I havent seen you playing so much but only the last 3 months ago and never really talked to you in person. Rather then talking to me about best when I was online you decided to write a post, not only accusing best, but also question my, masters and admins ability in acting as a mod/admin. Not only that but hinting me being German and ,according to best protecting him, thus being antisemitic as well. Hmmm.
I take your accuses serious, but you can´t seriously expect any serious moderator to ban someone just because of what you say. Most people complaing here use screenshots to prove their accusations. Attila seconded for what you said, but I am really sorry to say, that is not a reliable resource. And BAAL, well he registered 06.01.2011 and I never heard of him. If there are such serious accusations one should expect that people are not hiding behind second or third nics (which is the same as ´hiding behind friends´which you don´t like).
Is there any other well known, grown up player here, who can confirm DonDks accusations? And I mean more than that one comment Xuul referred to, but ongoing racism and antisemitism. Paars? LNO? G? Queen? Emp? Rex? Scientist? Gratis? Keyser?
Is there any other member of this community questioning my ability as a mod? Or accusing me of on going favourism of certain players who need to be banned?
DonDK accused not only best and indirectly me, but the whole Community in being antisemitic.
Anybody who experienced this community and played this game seriously knows: We are not antisemitic or racists!
Is antisemitism and racism here really the problem or is this only an excuse to make up a front where there hasnt been one before? I think we all know the answer.
