I can’t follow up on The Standard so will try from here. After I was banned you bravely commented:
What questions? I tried to answer any reasonable questions. I’m happy to address them here, whatever they are.
By the way, when you said…
…you’re wrong, I didn’t set out “with the intent of, if at all possible, getting negative comments”. I frequently had deliberate postive intent, I tried to initiate discussions on what I thought were relevant issues.You and others had the deliberate intent of abusing me and disrupting threads. This was frequent and over a period of years.
Or do you mean posting positive comments abour David Shearer and Labour got up your nose?
It is a real wankfest for him. The rest of us hate it, we would prefer to debate the issues.
You hardly ever tried to debate issues – probably because you are hopeless at debating. So you – and others – resort to attacking the messenger. The same thing happened to others, including the Paganis this week. The Standard is famous for it.
You used to deliberately initiate and encourage mob hate. This was openly supported by moderators.
He then does this passive aggressive stuff and suggests he is the victim. He is not.
What is passive aggressive stuff? Are you confusing that with arguments that can have pros and cons, that not everything is black or white, right or wrong?
I have been a victiom of a lot of abuse. Another thing The Standard is famous for – and onesided, with the abusers knowing they have the protection of the blog moderators. You admitted it yourself a few weeks ago when you said Te Reo Putake would never be banned – one of the most persistent resident trolls and abusers.
He is a silly person who does not realise that if he wants a debate he will get one…
Rubbish, you rarely tried to debate. And I often engaged in debates with those who were willing to do it reasonably. But you know as well as I do (or you should do) debate wasn’t the usual intent of some, it was harassment.
but if he wants to tr0ll he will get dumped on.
That’s the biggest joke of the lot. You were a resident troll who often tried to disrupt threads simply because I was involved. Same with Te Reo Putake and a number of others.
You wanted to shut down discussion with people you wanted to harrass.
Perhaps I’m wrong and you really believe what you say – which would mean you are even thicker than I thought.
And have you noticed that the hate, the abuse, the personal attacks have all continued since I was banned. The same old shit, juts different targets and different excuses. It’s ingrained culture, it’s how a hard core of regulars and moderators are at The Standard.
You can’t blame any of that on me. I was permanently banned simply for pointing it out.
And a final question – are you still Chair of the Labour Party’s Auckland-Northland Regional Council?
