    Computer chat forum very abusive mods
    « on: May 04, 2015, 11:37:09 PM »
    I found out one of the moderators banned me from the ComputerHope chat forum and I was banned unfairly, i did nothing wrong at all and nothing justifies the ban at all, I got banned and then I was told to be quiet by one of the mods, lostcoast, that is not the way a mod should speak to a member. I will not respect a moderator if they dont respect me, how would lostcoast like it if I told him to be quiet? unacceptable behavior lostcoast, unacceptable! dont u dare tell me to be quiet u dont tell me what to do, u are not my boss and i dont have to listen to u at all i did not even do anything wrong and how dare u ban me u cant do that!

    IRC bans are not determined via a jury of your peers. If you think a ban is unfair, you move on (or wait for it to expire, which I think is 2 weeks). I don't have any logs but if I had to guess based on this post you were probably banned for your recalcitrant attitude.
    I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

    Logs for context.  User in question was originally guest_22 and then later guest_63 after the initial kick (Probably best to start reading from near the end, I just included everything for full context.)

    [04:06:35] <guest_22> Hey guys I have a quick concern regarding IP addresses
    [04:06:37] <Quantos> Ah cool, nothing like a good learning experiment
    [04:06:41] <lostcoast> and you never did one?
    [04:06:53] <Quantos> Yes guest_22?
    [04:07:03] <guest_80> no, but I hav replaced the cpu
    [04:07:21] <guest_80> upgraded the ram 2
    [04:07:45] <guest_22> Say I have 2 computers(or any other device) using the same internet connection, are those 2 computers using the same exact IP address or are they 2 different ones
    [04:07:47] <Quantos> If you're comfortable with it go ahead, that's a good experience for you
    [04:07:57] <lostcoast> find a dead laptop and try and take it apart and put back 1st
    [04:08:11] <Quantos> Yeap, unbeatable advice on that ^^^^
    [04:08:20] <guest_80> I had an old netbook I took apart and reassembled
    [04:08:27] <Quantos> They would share the IP guest_22
    [04:09:15] <guest_22> And the same ISP as well?
    [04:09:18] -*- Quantos wonders if he's just answered homework or not
    [04:09:43] <Quantos> Sorry, we don't do homework here guest_22, you're going to have to make use of Google.
    [04:10:16] <guest_22> Should Google have all the answers to this?
    [04:10:30] <Quantos> It'll have more than your getting out of me
    [04:10:46] <guest_80> this is what i hav right now: http://www.algogo.com/store/products/HP-Pavilion-DV6000-DV6500-DV6700-460901%252d001-Intel-Motherboard-Laptop-Notebook.html
    [04:11:05] <guest_80> this is the 1 im looking at getting: http://www.ebay.com/itm/HP-DV6000-laptop-motherboard-443774-001-NVIDIA-Geforce-7200-AMD-DDR2-skt-S1-/181539891956?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a449eeaf4

    [04:11:47] <guest_80> the only difference I can see is the cpu slot
    [04:11:51] <Quantos> It looks like it might fit guest_80
    [04:12:03] <guest_80> or socket I mean
    [04:12:09] <Quantos> But you can understand my willingness to comment
    [04:12:22] <Quantos> You know, there isn't any
    [04:12:38] <guest_22> thanks Quantos btw do u know how i can check my IP address
    [04:12:52] <Quantos> Google my young friend
    [04:13:01] <Quantos> Google will tell you all
    [04:14:51] --> Nikhil ([email protected]) has joined #computerhope
    [04:15:35] <guest_22> if u say so Quantos I will Google all of this if I happen to not find an answer to a query on Google should I come on here and ask or is this site not for these kind of related questions? Thanks ?
    [04:16:12] <lostcoast> you open a browser and use any search engine like http://google.com and search    ''<condensed question>''  and research the results like most things that can be found easy. Basic search tips:http://miburl.com/MM8qEZ
    [04:16:14] <Quantos> We just don't do homework is all.  We've done ours, now it's your turn to do yours
    [04:16:27] <Quantos> Good luck with it
    [04:16:53] <lostcoast> http://google.com Enter a search term to get results for yourself, such as ''Avast'' to find a program or ''Avast Tutorial'', ''Avast Forum'' ..use as little info as you can to start, like ''win7 repair install' be creative and switch around words to get diff results.

    [04:34:22] <guest_22> Anyone who is able to answer this, I looked over on Google for this but unfortunately there was no answer to it is there a way to track what activity can be done on another computer thats using ur same IP
    [04:34:42] <lostcoast> why?
    [04:35:06] <guest_40> why bro
    [04:35:20] <guest_40> you can but thats just not right

    [04:36:19] <lostcoast> miss your paranoid pill today?
    [04:36:35] <guest_40> no there can stalk you
    [04:37:02] <guest_40> thats this for hackers to do
    [04:37:10] <guest_40> ever hard
    [04:37:17] <guest_40> very hard
    [04:37:38] <lostcoast> whats that behind you?
    [04:37:43] <lostcoast> BOO!
    [04:38:01] <guest_40> lol
    [04:38:14] <guest_22> I just dont like when my activity is stalked by someone else i try to keep everything secure though
    [04:38:28] <lostcoast> who do you suspect?
    [04:39:32] <lostcoast> or is this a general paranoia?
    [04:39:39] <guest_40> did any thing just pop up telling you to install something
    [04:40:02] <guest_40> like a ad to speed up pc or etc
    [04:40:38] <lostcoast> it popped up and said BOO!
    [04:40:49] <guest_22> @guest 40 which pop up
    [04:41:34] <guest_40> any pop up
    [04:41:49] <guest_22> Not at the moment I havent gotten a pop up
    [04:42:07] <guest_40> like out of the ordinary
    [04:42:21] <guest_22> Sometimes very rarely though
    [04:42:46] <guest_40> or you are installing a app an there say you have to install this first
    [04:43:13] <guest_22> No that hasnt happened to me yet is it common
    [04:43:25] <guest_40> yep
    [04:43:52] <lostcoast> g netstat
    [04:43:53] <Hopebot> Netstat - TechNet - Microsoft: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb490947.aspx
    [04:44:00] <lostcoast> read
    [04:44:38] <guest_40> like for eg need for speed there might give you a downloader to download the app through then install
    [04:44:48] <guest_40> THATS VIRUS
    [04:44:51] <guest_22> @lostcoast when u say who do I suspect u mean cud someone be stalking me
    [04:45:56] <lostcoast> nowhere fast award
    [04:46:41] <guest_40> right so i have to try to get a new ram and try it
    [04:46:55] <guest_40> or ask someone the use there ddr2 ram
    [04:47:06] <guest_22> If I have XP is that still safe to use for Windows
    [04:47:20] <guest_40> if people here use that anymore
    [04:47:45] <guest_40> xp is windows
    [04:48:08] <guest_22> But didnt they stop doing updates for it
    [04:48:23] <guest_40> yep
    [04:48:35] <guest_40> but you can upgrade to windows 7
    [04:48:55] <guest_40> but do not expect great performance
    [04:49:19] <guest_22> Good idea so u mean windows 7 is not great performance
    [04:49:22] <guest_40> performance compare to the xp, xp is faster
    [04:49:34] <guest_22> I mean I prefer XP over 7 for sure
    [04:49:45] <guest_40> yea
    [04:49:58] <guest_40> less animations
    [04:50:05] <guest_40> better performance
    [04:50:21] <guest_22> like u said its faster, less animations and for one thing I just dont like the way windows 7 is set up at all
    [04:50:24] <guest_40> like windows 8 that pull ram like mad
    [04:50:49] <guest_22> windows 8 is totally different
    [04:50:55] <guest_22> i like XP the best
    [04:51:03] <guest_40> in a way
    [04:51:30] <guest_40> windows 8 is just crap
    [04:51:42] <guest_40> games will lag like mad
    [04:51:58] <guest_40> overall xp will win
    [04:52:06] <guest_40> but not is style
    [04:52:17] <guest_40> but not in style
    [04:52:23] <guest_22> But guest_40 there was a really important reason on why I was asking about the IPs yeah I dont like windows 8 or 7, and how to upgrade to 7?
    [04:52:52] <guest_40> get a flashdrive
    [04:52:55] *** Mode #computerhope -h Quantos by ChanServ
    [04:53:01] <guest_40> download window 7
    [04:53:16] <guest_40> and make your flashdrive flashable
    [04:53:25] <guest_40> or just buy the cd
    [04:53:43] <guest_22> Ok I think I will buy the cd is that the easiest thing to do
    [04:54:06] <guest_40> yep
    [04:54:19] <guest_22> And if I dont like 7 is there any way to go back to XP
    [04:54:22] <guest_22> im assuming no
    [04:54:36] <guest_40> yep
    [04:54:47] <guest_40> get the windows xp cd
    [04:54:49] <guest_40> :)
    [04:55:46] <guest_22> oh i should have thought that! i dont know why i didnt think of that do u recommend upgrading or should I stick with XP since i like it
    [04:55:55] <lostcoast> put in a diff hard drive and load win7
    [04:56:07] <lostcoast> you can dual boot
    [04:56:40] <guest_40> get a sata harddrive
    [04:56:42] <guest_40> too
    [04:56:43] <lostcoast> my comp triple boots
    [04:57:05] <guest_40> because you might have 160gb right now
    [04:57:14] <guest_40> but go for win 7
    [04:57:26] <guest_40> best of both worlds

      IRC bans are not determined via a jury of your peers. If you think a ban is unfair, you move on (or wait for it to expire, which I think is 2 weeks). I don't have any logs but if I had to guess based on this post you were probably banned for your recalcitrant attitude.

      Excuse me but that is an assumption on your part. Without knowing any facts how can you just say right off the bat that I had a bad attitude? Not very nice of you, camerongray has posted a log of the recent chat and I would like to know where I was misbehaving in that, I am guest 22 btw. lostcoast was the one who told me to be quiet who is he to say that I am not his slave and he is not my master, I am not trying to sound rude but this does not mean I will tolerate rudeness, especially when I never showed any in the first place, if you refer to the log where was I being rude? I had a humble question and the resposne I get is be quiet , nothing justifies that at all and I am really hurt and upest I feel I was treated badly, just one question though for you BC_Programmer are you completely on lostcoast's side, dont u think he is wrong at all? Should I be banned for no fault of mine?

        Logs for context.  User in question was originally guest_22 and then later guest_63 after the initial kick (Probably best to start reading from near the end, I just included everything for full context.)

        Camerongray dont u think the ban placed for me was unfair?  I would like to know what was fair about that ban

          Further I would like to apologize if I have hurt anyones' feelings, it was never my intention to do so, however I still believe my ban was unfair and thought of coming to the forum to explain how I felt I was treated unfairly, I dont think I was being rude or had any disrespectful attitude on the chat, I did not say anything hurtful to anyone, I had a computer question and for that I was kicked out which I believe is not fair at all, after all its a website for computer related questions, which obviously I never really had much of a chance to discuss.

            patio I was not being rude or showing any unacceptable behavior, why do u say get over it? Why was I given a ban in the first place? At least the mod could have told me why he/she was banning me, and the threatening tone of the moderator was not nice either I'm not a person who lets things go I am very hurt right now I had a computer question which I could never ask due to this ban!

              I've given up on commenting on things like this.  I merely posted the log to give your post context so that others can get a fair idea of what happened.

              While I understand that you are upset (as anyone who is banned like this would be), your tone in this thread is a bit rude and offputtting which doesn't give the best impression.  Don't feel as though I'm defending anyone, I am not getting involved in either side of this.  As you can see throughout the rest of this forum section, it is pointless trying to argue with the ban, it's best just to move on.

              I had a computer question which I could never ask due to this ban!

              You are still totally welcome to ask it in the relevant section on the forum, your question will be seen by more people on the forum anyway, it just takes a bit more time to get the answer.

                Hi camerongray, I appreciate your response, thank you. And thank you also for a neutral and diplomatic reply as well, I understand you do not wish to get involved in this matter as you were not even in the chat, you were only posting this so that others understand what is going on, I would like to ask you, do you mind showing me where my tone sounded kind of rude? I may have missed that but if you would mind telling me where my tone was disrespectful I will accept it and apologize for it, just curious to know though do you think the moderator(in this case lostcoast)'s tone was also not very polite either with me? Thanks in advance.

                Look, I'm not a fan of lostcoast's, but please - give it a rest. We get it - you don't think you were rude and you don't think you deserved to be banned. Okay. Maybe you're right and maybe you're not - but enough.  It's a 2 week ban from a chat room, not a firing squad. There are other things to do and other chat rooms to visit. Chill - your posts here are not winning you any fans or sympathy, trust me. Just let it go and move on.

                There are many knee-jerk reaction bans in the Chat atmosphere...i'll neither defend nor explain them because i don't always agree with it either...

                All i'm stating is you shouldn't over-react either...
                That's my take on it.

                  Its just that I was banned for no fault of mine! Wouldn't anyone in my position feel the same way? Another thing I dont get it is I feel the rules of the chat were kind of unfair, lostcoast because he/she is a mod is allowed to say whatever they want, and then ban me for absolutely nothing. Doesnt there have to be a valid reason for banning someone, dont the moderators have rules to follow as well? I am not against rule following at all, I will try my best to follow the rules of the site however why should I tolerate injustice being done to me? The worst part is I feel like I'm being ganged up against on this thread, taking lostcoast's side. I apologize again if I sounded rude at all in my post, I never wanted to hurt anyone, its just that knowing why I was banned would be nice so I would know not to do whatever I did in the chat again to avoid getting banned next time, thanks.
