Good things to those who wait

I was all armoured up and ready to hit the PgDn key when I saw the first post in the darkpaganism community this morning.

But lo! there are, indeed, Gods of LJ who listen to prayers (or at least complaints).

The Troll, his sockpuppets and the odd sycophant have been banned from the community. Several accounts have also been suspended - thankfully, none of those who were defending themselves from the Troll's vitriol.

Life suddenly got a lot shinier.

(Of course, I doubt it will take long for him to pop up with another account - or that LJ have missed one of his sockpuppets - but we'll deal with that if it happens.)

The membership is now moderated, however, and it's been made clear that hex won't put up w/ any slander and shit anymore, so even if they do make it in, it shouldn't last long.

Too little too late for me. I took the comm off my friends list so I wouldn't have to see RA's blather on my friends list, but in the end I actually left the community because of theunicursalhex's "9/11 taught me to let trolls play under my bridge" post.

Her blasé attitude toward the whole thing has been at best cowardly, at worst irresponsible - and in her latest mod post she makes it clear that the only reason she took action against RA is because LiveJournal management demanded that she do so. She's pissy because people responded to RA's inflammatory remarks, but the fact is, she was unwilling to take a stand.

Every time I see her sign off on a post as "Your fearless leader," my laughter is derisive.

I completely agree with you. In fact b/c Robin ended uphaving his LJ account suspended she's done a 180 in her moderation style.. now EVERYTHING is moderated. One extreme to another.

Well, I'm curious and patient and now that son_of_art's account is gone we'll see where this goes. If I end up banned for no good reason, I won't have any tears to shed, that's for sure.

Apparently LJ abuse / management didn't get all RA's accounts (no big surprise there) if you moderate any communities, keep an eye out for owl_clan, because that's him again.

I see what you mean. He's clearly taken it up for a main account.

I will keep a look out.
