[16:44:17] <FatPhil> staff - see JNCF's comments on #Soylent just now
[16:44:53] <FatPhil> To be honest, I dont think the 2 most recent "Spam" mods were quite fair : https://soylentnews.org
[16:45:40] <FatPhil> https://soylentnews.org and https://soylentnews.org
[16:46:14] <FatPhil> they're just Offtopic, I'd say.
[16:47:05] <FatPhil> Both spam mods were by weeds, I'm not sure if that's relevant.
[16:59:45] <FatPhil> I'm tempted to say that the core FAQ devotes too much space to submitting stories, perhaps that could be bubbled out into its own sub-page in the same way moderation is?
[17:09:39] <cmn32480> Fatphil... I will unmod them, I am not sure if I shoudl unmod and ban
[17:09:45] <cmn32480> TheMightyBuzzard,
[17:09:50] <cmn32480> ping TheMightyBuzzard
[17:14:10] <FatPhil> on weeds' page https://soylentnews.org , the 11-14 20:23 link to https://soylentnews.org is also a spam mod in response to complaining about banning, like the originally reported post.
[17:15:13] <FatPhil> And another offtopic thing as spam here https://soylentnews.org

[17:15:42] <FatPhil> So it seems like he occasionally does it, but he doesn't seem like a disruptive member of the community
[17:16:56] <FatPhil> Devil's advocate hypothesis: he clicks a moderation that's not spam, and then uses the cursor keys to scroll the page. the page doesn't scroll, but his moderation selection does. he uses the mouse or page down instead, but doesn't go to fix the now-changed moderation.
[17:17:28] <FatPhil> I've accidentally mis-moderated a few times.
[17:22:25] <FatPhil> Maybe another dummy line would trap the "landed on the bottom one accidentally" case:
[17:22:29] <FatPhil> INSERT IGNORE INTO modreasons (id, name, m2able, listable, val, karma, fairfrac, ordered, needs
[17:22:32] <FatPhil> _prior_mod) VALUES (100, '-----------', 0, 1, 1, 1, 0.5, 100, 0);
[17:22:49] <FatPhil> plugins/Moderation/mysql_dump.sql
[17:25:25] <FatPhil> TheMightyBuzzard: ^^^
[17:31:32] <cmn32480> the one from 11-14 IS spam
[17:32:39] <FatPhil> well it's utterly pointless, and of no benefit to the site, I'll grant you that.
[18:11:04] <TheMightyBuzzard> cmn32480, pong
[18:12:50] <cmn32480> hey man
[18:12:58] <cmn32480> i made an executive decision
[18:13:05] <cmn32480> you were fishing...
[18:13:08] <TheMightyBuzzard> kay
[18:13:09] <cmn32480> or somesuch
[18:13:16] <cmn32480> unmod.. but no ban
[18:13:27] <TheMightyBuzzard> nah, they's snow everywhere so i was playin vidya.
[18:13:51] <TheMightyBuzzard> fair nuff, though if they was only offtopic it did call for a ban.
[18:15:28] <TheMightyBuzzard> i personally don't generally give benefit of the doubt, though i will reverse it if they claim it was an accident either via email or further down the thread.
[18:15:56] <TheMightyBuzzard> you're the one who handled it though, so your call.
[18:16:10] <cmn32480> nah his mod history is good
[18:16:25] <cmn32480> sent him a message and we is currently chatting in a PM
[18:16:37] <TheMightyBuzzard> ahh, nod nod
