    https://www.tetongravity.com/forums/...-Update/page56

    A line has been crossed.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Is "the line" that NSFW photo, I assume? Stuff like that will be removed; report it when you see it.

    That thread has prompted a few emails between the mods and myself. Given how much the members want an "unmoderated" community, we try to step back unless illegal stuff is going on.

    Did you guys start this forum for ski bums to talk about random shit, or for racists like Saul or white supremacists like Damian to have a platform? You guys need to grow some balls and do what's best for your brand. Just a tiny bit of sensible moderation would go a long way.

    Saul is a stage 5 stalker. whoever this coward is he knows me and my family, and posted personal info about us. It was mostly wrong and misleading, but unsettling nonetheless.

    The fact that a nameless troll on here can just expose and out maggots while hiding behind a fake alias is bullshit.

    I'm not sure how many different aliases this idiot has, or who he is, but I'd be interested in seeing how deep this rabbit hole goes.

    PS. Check twodogs IP and see where it goes.

    You guys act like it's easy to decide who to ban, that there's some obvious consensus that TGR is missing.

    So, first, look at the roolz thread, propose changes. Come up with a definable standard to apply. Then list who fits your standard.

    I don't think it's very easy. And I doubt that everyone's lists will sync up.

    I wanted to add that doxxing is clearly against the roolz, did you report the post(s)?

    also, from what I gather, IP address is not always (or even often?) an accurate way to ID folks. But I'm just a dentist.

    I once got a very angry PM from skifishbum telling me that splat had "traced" the IP address of some alias to me. He was currently involved in some kind of flame war with said alias and basically threatened to punch me in the face if he ever saw me in person again. I had been on vacation without internet access for over a week. So, no, the admins here are not cyber forensics experts.

    The IP traces started out fairly reliable became but highly unreliable over time, it seems. I've wondered if someone's IP can be spoofed long term through an anonymizer or other program by someone malevolent enough to make others appear to be the offending alias. For a while, years ago, everyone's IP was showing so they would have been available for the spoof. I owe you an apology on that, Dan.

    It would be worthwhile to have an honest and introspective "is it still worth having polyass at all?" conversation imo.

    If I were in charge of TGR and this website helped pay my salary, I would dump that whole shithole and permanently ban, via whatever technical means necessary, every single poster who posts 75%+ of their posts in polyass, and anyone whose alias they are. I would then create a read-only forum called "the moron trash heap" or something, purely to shame people, and I would move political threads there when they became intolerably stupid, which is another way of saying "when they get created." Because having pictures of dead people, members threatening other members, hate speech of all kinds, and just generally a horrifically hostile political subforum dominated by the mentally unhinged simply cannot reflect well in any sense on your business - what financial or PR benefit does this convey? None.

    I don't understand how anyone can think there's any mentally healthy way to argue about politics online with strangers, or that any meaningful perspective can be gleaned about someone's political views without knowing them personally, how old they are, their job/family/socio-economic status, their gender, their upbringing, and something about the way they think. And even then, it's very difficult to have productive political discourse. Think about talking politics with your family. And for us! Not only are we all largely anonymized, but most of the serial polyass posters are aliases on top of that. Utterly pointless to discuss political issues with someone you can't distinguish from a blip of text on a computer screen. Not that I haven't done it, but it's like doing tequila shots at the end of the night: occasionally tempting, always a bad decision in retrospect.

    Also, we've all lived online for a while now, and everyone has posted in forums. It's 2017, nobody can honestly claim they get any happiness out of those arguments, nobody wins them, everybody loses. We've all posted online long enough to know the state of mind one is in when arguing online with strangers about politics, and despite the repeated claims of "lol I do this because it's funny to me when you guys are mad," this is total bullshit - you're addicted to it, it gets you worked up, you reply to everything and have these big drawn-out fights.... for what? This isn't even a political site, not even close. Go fight on twitter if you want to waste hours upon hours of your life deliberately making yourself angry about things you could do something about instead of actually going and doing something about them.

    Edit: just now since I've posted this I've seen yet more drama with some handful-of-posts polyass troll pseudo-doxxing/threatening another poster. Angry political arguments just don't need to be permitted on every website, it increasingly leads to this sort of shit.

    Put polyass on the trash heap. Just imo

    serious question: how do you define a sockpuppet? I am serious, look at the roolz thread and propose changes. Your proposed change missed my next requirement, "Come up with a definable standard to apply. Then list who fits your standard."

    It's not as easy as you seem to think, because what if my list is different than yours is different than ????

    It only gives these guys a platform if you engage with them, right? I agree that no minds are going to be changed here.

    Could be, although these types of issues tend to heat up after/before ski seasons, seemingly when there is nothing better to do.


    There is more discussion going on behind the scenes on limiting access to the poly forum to deter aliases.

    IP addresses change. Your office IP is different than your home IP. When your phone isn't using work or home WiFi, it also has a different IP. After a month a lot of them may change, anyway, unless you pay extra for a static. And then there's proxy servers, but most of us probably aren't using them to access TGR. Actually, they're a great way to access country restricted streaming content, especially on YouTube.
    And I think crusty sock puppets are pretty obvious.
