Double Standard At Weatherunderground

Ever received a ban at WU when the other blogger comments were allowed to stay or better yet, he/she had a chance to edit them? The fact that a blogger edits or modifies his comments tells anyone with a brain that the blogger knew he violated the so called rules of the road. Shouldn't we have a rule of the road where you are not allowed to modify your offensive post and replace it with a decoy? I understand misspellings and such and a blogger wants to modify their post but when its common knowledge that bloggers will attack other bloggers and then go back later and replace that said comment with a "weather" post is a clear violation. I gladly took my personal ban today..I'm good with that. I own up to my ban because I violated the rules but some bloggers on WU can say/modified/attack other bloggers with the Mods either

1)scared of these bloggers and don't want to be on the outside of the "circle

2)they can't separate their bias from their "friends" at WU


I hardly post anymore at WU and I'm good with that. It's definitely not the same as it was when I started in 2006. Maybe one day things will change but I hope its not the cost of some bloggers who do provide humor, insight and weather information to Weatherunderground.

Quoting 53. ncstorm:


Auburn..whats the point of ignoring someone especially when they are quoted by other bloggers..how bout yall fix the ignore/block option that if we choose to block someone, I shouldnt have to read it from another blogger..makes sense eh?

when that is fixed, then I can see your point but until then its pointless..

as long as you are handing out the heavy bans, just make sure to ban everyone in that tiff and not just selected bloggers..would make life much easier here at WU


Most comments that are quoted from a user that has been banned are removed..no one makes you read a comment..if you see a name on a comment from a person you dont care for dont read it,and its my practice to always ban each individual that is active in a dispute.

Why dont you all Block/ignore one another and save yourselves from future bans and disagreements..this tiff seems to have been going on for sometime with no resolution in sight.If you decide to continues this on the Drs blog I for one will be heavy handed with the bans if I see it...I suggest the Block/ignore option if a lengthy ban is something you had rather not deal with

Going to try & clear up some misunderstandings since they tend to lead to more discourse.



When someone changes a comment from something not so nice to something nice it tends to still get removed & a timeout dished..not surprised it's gone. We can see them...I asked you what comment because your entry & comments started like anyone could say stuff, modify & never be caught or we were purposely ignoring it..which is not true. I thought maybe there was something missed, that I could have took care of for you. Some comment you were basing the premise of this blog on...you went as far as accusing mods of being scared & or bias..so figured there must be some awful comment that had been modified & not removed. I couldn't find it because all the wanna be sly modified comments were already removed..unlike your blog claims. You weren't the only one that lost comments & got a time out. If yours was longer, I'm guessing you deserved it (I haven't read everything removed word for word, I was looking for the un-removed comment).. Even you admitted you deserved what you got. You didn't get hammered though.. that's for spammers & people trying to really harm people here..




Not true. No one has to flag the post.. You don't come off as sly as you think...please stop.



We might miss something here & there but jeez it's way better than it ever was..You'd be thanking us 10 fold had you seen the spam Keeper removed the other morning. & you mean the used to be mod who's user name starts with R. He asked to be turned free back into the community some time ago.



I called this bad moon rising a few days ago.. You all try & help each other through. Not only the moon but everything is wrapping up for the holidays with parties & such thrown in. It's a stressful week & week ahead for many. ncstorm..thanks for hosting here. Hope you all work this out. I think the problems more lie in how you all are playing and responding then fair moderation. We've found it's more our place to protect the community as a whole from boat loads of spam & people that do nothing but attack & disrupt than to baby sit. Ya all are grown ups. Either ignore each other, make up or take a longer time out.
Okay.I'm dropping it and moving on.Thanks for calling out Pat though.Good night all.

And you as well.

If you feel the need to chastise me, do it in a wu mail Skyepony.

One never should address a member in this manner in a open comment...esp a Mod.

All this came about as a result of a character attack

I offer no refunds sadly.


Thanx,Peace

And on to another day.

unfortunately they have been removed Skye after I got banned and sent an email to Keep...I now cant reference which post that may have been modifed as all posts that quoted the offending post was removed..

I wasn't the only one who personally attack someone today to which I admit and take my ban as I should but when I get a reason of my ban that personal attacks are not allowed then I have to question why the other blogger gets his easily removed but I'm the only one who got the hammer??

Here's a lil info you wont find discussed much, If you modify any post, it does NOT remove the original from the wu server head.

So if you flag any post, even after it's MODIFIED, the Mods and admin and others involved in that loop, will see the original post.

That is all.

Have a Happy Holidays.


so why do you modify it then..just to fool us common bloggers..no because you know you are breaking the rules of the road..and if the mods can see it then why is Skye asking me about the offending post if she can easily see it?..you know something the mods don't?

Well its funny you know the rules of the road quite well but you continue to violate them with personal attacks and then modify your posts..your posts have been unfounded and done many times on the main blog as well as rood's blog but yet you continue to hurl your insults and modify it cover your violation..

by the way there was nothing unfounded about my post today..I'm sure you dont want to rehash that whole episode so If you want to post it please feel free to do so..

thanks for stopping by New Orleans..

For equal transgressions, AGW proponents get a lot more latitude than skeptics.

I totally disagree. In our regular posting community there is by far more proponents for than against that are even posting. Overall those for AGW in number of attacks & comments is even or more than the other way around.

There is some on both sides that don't want to the see the other side post & think mods should ban the other. Pro-agw are the worst on the mods for not banning the other side.

in featured blogs we are suppose to remove purely political rants regardless of which side they come from.




if that is the case the mods are surely not left leaning as one right wing blogger posts political rants time and time and does not get them pulled...not complaining mind you....just denying a right/left bias in my view

I agree with Astro.. & in featured blogs we are suppose to remove purely political rants regardless of which side they come from. Maybe the bias is created in one side ranting more than the other? Lately many are directed at Obama or Obamacare.

No, I dont think they should remove the modify feature but if the post was questionable to begin with and the blogger went back to modify it with something else, then that blogger needs to be told on the main blog what he did wrong and to stop modifying posts to cover his azz or either ban him/her altogether with a temp ban as some selected bloggers easily get..
