Anthony – you offered the opportunity to provide feedback to a warning you provided me in regards to a post I made. So I shall. I’ve been insulted far, far worse than my post. I never insulted anyone. You referred to getting personal. I’d like you to point out the personal insult. Referring to a remark as stupid is not a personal insult. The original poster had insulted William Shatner as not getting Star Trek. I used their own words to imply they didnt get Star Trek either. Thats sarcasm, not a personal attack. This site is awesome but the moderation is really all over the place. You dont have a forum where posters can be ignored or reported and allow a lot of insults and angry exchanges go. You let posters keep pushing negative, off topic, attacks on actors and other people. There have been posts hoping for death of certain actors. And then pop in occasionally to give stern (sometimes heavy handed) warnings to people, some of whom are significant contributors. Of course, it is your site to do with as you please. And I never want anyone banned or suspended (I’ve said this privately to this site’s admin). But providing even the basic tools that other forums have to assist posters in ignoring/reporting those few that are obviously trolling or baiting would be useful. If the standard by which I received a warning is the new standard, this place is going to be a ghost town. lol… Read more »

keep up the good work.

nobody cares about the orville, this is a star trek website, pls dig into further what’s happening with star trek 4 and Chris Hemsworth, NOT that farce Orville. Honestly, it’s embarrasing, remove that content. Suggestion, start a .com for those losers who enjoy that quip. Orvillenews.com?

Is there ANY moderation on this site anymore? This LETHE page is just open warfare (which I have jumped well into), and pretty tragic already. I’m also rather ticked off that I can be accused of being an alias for somebody else (who I don’t know from Adam) in multiple posts in this thread without anybody noticing or rapping anybody’s ball for same.

barely trek related, but this story does not cast Robert Wise in a particularly good light (though not too surprising given his involvement in AMBERSONS.) Would have been shortly after TMP. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/i-was-harassed-by-an-afi-director-kicked-i-reported-it-guest-column-1053469

Somewhat related to what kmart said… It very much seems like the bulk of the problems stem from mostly one, perhaps two posters. Since nothing is being done about that then a good add would be an “ignore” function. Then we don’t even have to accidentally see their posts. They would just be invisible to those who don’t even want to see them.

I also think posters should not be able to just change their handle and then lie about their previous remarks when its very very obvious its the same person. And the constant uneducated attacks on CBS and the show.

We all have things we like and dislike and 99% of us discuss them and really enjoy it. Seems to be the same 2-3 posters who said for months how much they hated the show before they ever saw it than continue to post irrational negativity. And then when you have people switching handles when the show debuted to pretend they’re new, that’s just ridiculous.

An ignore function would be nice. But really, this site is great and mostly handles its own issues. If people would look in the mirror before complaining, they might have a more positive experience. Keep up the great work!

The site’s CSS is not loading. I cannot view the site properly on Edge or Chrome.

We had an issue yesterday which created CSS loading issues, they were fixed Friday afternoon. I just confirmed in multiple browsers (Firefox, Chrome,Safari) in private (no cache) sessions that the site loads as expected.

Hi Guys! Is there an issue with comments being moderated initially? All my comments are being held in moderation which is unusual… Thanks!

Hello

I just posted a feedback comment that didnt appear, about comments being held in moderation. Is this a glitch or a something new?

Happy Hoildays. & New Year 2018.

Aaron (Naysayers are going to nay)

I think I am just about done with your site. I’ve had my fill of being attacked in the comments. Today someone literally said this about a group of people.

“You horrible, lost souls need to be exposed, called out, shamed, and relegated to your rightful place: history’s septic tank.”

Apparently moderation doesn’t exist anymore. This is completely unacceptable and bigoted behavior.

It’s really to bad as I have been visiting this site since the beginning (over ten years now I believe).

Hey all,

Love the site. Been here since 2009.

I had a couple posts moderated yesterday. I was just hoping to get a reason. No big deal either way. They were pretty shameless, I admit. Maybe this was the wrong place to post such things?

Anyway, keep up the good work. Thanks.

Hi guys

Quick remarks since I received a “warning” earlier. I will take the assumption that feedback here (even if its “negative”) is encouraged?

Can we request a crack down on bigoted posts? Some of these comments about the gay characters is really gross and crops up EVERY time there is a new thread about the show.

Im sure Im not the only one (In fact I know Im not) that ends up feeling the need to push back when we see it. If people like me get warned then it shows the mods are active. Why is some of this stuff allowed?

I think we all enjoy the generally loose/fair moderation (no one likes over-moderation). But the same gross remarks about the gay characters every thread should be zero tolerance.

My two cents.

Thanks!

While we certainly do intend to crack down more on the outright hateful comments, why you were warned was for a different reason. The interaction that you think was “fine” and felt you had to “push back” on, was not fine. The commenter had a differing opinion about the portrayal of gay characters, as well as other aspects of Discovery, it wasn’t particularly rude or bigoted. He also attempted to clarify his points in a reply. More importantly is how you continued to harass this other community member.

You seem to have lost perspective on the whole interaction, because while you thought it was fine and even made a rather dismissive reply to me there, the person you directed your comments towards was upset and reported the conversation to the site staff. So clearly it was not as harmless as you perceived it to be. Looking at the exchange, more removed from it as a site admin, it doesn’t appear to be very friendly, with a lot of the aggression coming from your side. Hence why we decided to warn you. You had been warned and came close to being banned last summer, so know this time you’ll be banned if your poor behavior continues. As a long term commenter you should know better by now, and lead by example.

Matt, Im not sure we’re thinking of the same exchange to be honest. But if I now understand the exchange you’re referring to, my initial reply was made before I read his attempt to clarify. I dont read the entire thread before replying to individual posts. That person also was extremely rude to me in his reply. So I guess I should have reported it (lol) Here’s the thing, the issue of bigotry towards gays is near and dear to me for reasons that arent anyone’s business. But there has been far too much bigotry allowed here in the past. Having a different opinion about gays isnt a nuanced debate. And the reason people feel inclined to push back so hard is because the moderation was very “liberal” here for awhile. So if you’re back to be more strict, thats great. But also, as you said, a long term commenter should be given the benefit of the doubt. I was not attacking a person, I was taking exception to his poorly worded “Opinion” on gays (which he admitted was poorly worded, hence the clarification). I also made the effort to reply to that poster in a more understanding manner after reading his clarification. As for previous near-bannings, well, you had a guy knowingly pushing the same untrue “fact” over and over again. He then left and returned with a new handle. Point taken. There are far too many insightful intelligent people here to waste time on the trolls, I grant… Read more »

What is the “Hacker” thing about??

It’s a bug with our comment system. We’re waiting on the next version, which should have a fix. If you get it, close out your browser and try again. Also don’t comment back-to-back, wait a few minutes between comments.

Thanks! I lost a long reply :( Sad for me. maybe good news for everyone else lol

In case others come by and see this, the comment system has been updated with what they claim is a fix for this. Please let us know if you continue to see the pink bar warning.

Proof is in the pudding that this site has no moderation. You let new nicknames, whose posts you need to approve before publishing, comment articles (see most recent ones about pegg) for no other reason than making personal attacks against other people that have absolutely nothing to do with the article, or disagreeing with what those people had said.

This site used to be more welcoming of different fans and opinions, but through the years it has became insular to the point a lot of fans of the kelvin movies especially had simply stopped to participate to discussions because of the modus operandi of some people who gave themselves a moderator role they didn’t have, and try to shut down discussions and alienate anyone who has an opinion they don’t like through personal ad hominem attacks. Even if it only represents a minority of this fandom, it really doesn’t give the trek fans the best reputation.

Anthony – when you close a thread for “trolling” (which I assume is related to sexist, racist or homophobic posts) can you specify if the “warning” is for the OP? Im not sure it’s clear and it might leave everyone else who posted in the thread confused as to what/who was receiving the warning…

Thanks!

Russell Bates has died. Co-wrote the classic Star Trek TAS episode, How Sharper Than A Serpent’s Tooth, which won Star Trek its first Emmy. Any chance you could do an article on him?

Capt Ransom in the GLAAD thread is getting near HM4 level with his comments, can you look in? Cuz I’m tired of dealing with him and want to see him disciplined, he is way out of line in the way he is deriding those with dissenting views.
