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 51. auburn:
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


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

Quoting 39. Patrap:
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?

If I offended anyone,esp a Lady, I apologize.

See, I'm a Humanist first, as we all sometimes go overboard esp when it comes to subject matter were passionate about.

Quoting 20. Skyepony:
So what comment # are you talking about?


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??

Quoting 27. Patrap:
The rules of the road are explicit, and when one violates them in a manner that tries to put a members handle in Bad light with a unfounded accusation, the post is removed and that offender banned for period of time.


I saved that post and will post it here if you'd like.





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..

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 got a Christmas party to throw tonite. So I don't have a bunch of time. However, Even tho I get the occasional timeout, I love this place. I get mad sometimes, but it never lasts.

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

There is a very definite left leaning bias here.
I can't prove it but I don't believe there is a single "mod" here that would be considered a conservative.


I dont think it's so much with politics anymore as I am lefty but just with certain bloggers who get special passes..I'm considered an old timer blogger but I get a ban here every other month..the universe is not right if I don't receive one it seems....LOL..

Quoting 4. GTstormChaserCaleb:
Hmm...do you think they should remove the modify feature, ncstorm?


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..
