Does everyone who doesn't agree with NonSequitur's views get banned in this forum?

161
AlinaF

It is clear that the moderators of this forum are biased against anyone who doesn't  agree with the low quality contributions of the forum regulars like NonSequitur, the 'Nice Guy'. 

Most of us regard this site as a place for the gathering of professional architects. This is not the forum for self-promotion, attention-seeking posts of babys and comments which discriminate against people who work in jobs other than architecture, such as Starbucks workers. 

NonSequitur I am going to address you directly now. Given your track record, all of us here know what you are and what you are not. You are not a nice guy. You have consistently insulted and tried to intimidate several newcomers to the forum, like for example students posting questions. Therefore, stop playing Mr Sensitive and reporting the posts of people that interfere with your ego and insecurities. If you are looking for attention, ego boost or sympathy find yourself a therapist. Finally, none of us wants to see any more low quality content, like your baby's pictures or any other sort of photos from your personal life in this forum. Let's keep it professional. 

I hope this is clear and I demand a direct answer from the Archinect team over the ongoing censorship that needs to stop.

I don’t think you understand the meaning of “worst quality”. The OP has no relevant experience to share and has never contributed any substance to the forum. While I’ve maintained a healthy balance of snark and non snark, feel free to sink to her level. Must be pleasant down there in the shadows.

You are as bad as each other quite frankly.

"Post-rationalising is great."

"Your capacity to think is limited."

"Learn people skills."

it's the internet. Also, there's nothing wrong with NS posting a picture in thread central.

daer

It's the Internet? That's not an excuse. If you can have manners out there in the real world you can do the same when you are online. On the other hand it is usually the jerks who make the hurtful comments in these forums.

curtkram

your expectations are not aligned with you observed environment. You can't change other people, you can only work on yourself.

daer

I know that these people aren't going to change but we still have the right to call them out. Just because it's the Internet doesn't mean they can get away with it.

curtkram

I see. You see other people online bitching about what you're doing, so your adaptation is to bitch about what they're doing? Guess that makes sense.

daer

I don't know why you are insulting me at the moment. I don't think I was disrespectful to you. My overall comment on this was that the forum fosters rude behaviour. People (including people posting on this thread) have been very rude to me on here in the past, when I was on
ly posting a simple question.

randomised

daer, it is simply direct without the current societal need to sugarcoat. I usually find it more refreshing and it’s better for your teeth.

curtkram

I don't mean to insult you. You seem to have concern that there are people here who are rude and inconsiderate. In response you call those people "the jerks who make hateful comments," which I think it's fair to say is a negative thing to say about a person. My observation is just that you seem to be trying to fit in with the tenor of the group, which is commendable. You'll fit in just fine :)

daer

Sorry I can see how that sound wrong. When I said it's the jerks who make the hurtful comments, I am trying to point out that if someone is ill behaved it's more likely they will make a hurtful comment either on the Internet or not. That was in response to you saying that this is just how the Internet works in generally. I respectfully disagree because I have participated in forums
where everyone is very respectful and friendly. Archinects's problem is known anyway, I can recall Paul Petrunia discussing this in a podcast.

curtkram

Oh, I see. I don't think I've seen respectful forums. I suppose if access was gated so there was some sort of filter on who could join and if it was more heavily moderated that could be possible, but then new content would become scarce.

curtkram

there has to be a quid-pro-quo with your interaction here. It's not just you ask a question and someone answers. There would be no motive for that person to read the forums (stack exchange does kind of work in that way, but that isn't a forum, and wouldn't work well for architecture). So, someone like NS comes here to vent or for entertainment, not specifically to answer other people's questions.

daer

I do agree that there must be a further incentive other than information sharing, however what a good majority of people on here that just insult and tell off others who have simply joined to ask an innocent question. How is insulting others entertainment?

randomised

daer, it is not information sharing, it is poaching...

daer

If someone reached out to you for advice, wouldn't that make you feel important? Why would you answer their inquiry with a snark? Would you do that at your place of work?

randomised

They usually come here looking for shortcuts or handouts and treat this place as a search engine...They don’t make me personally feel important at all but cheap, very cheap.

daer

Well then you can simply not answer. There's no need to go on the offensive.

curtkram

what was the question and answer that offended you? Isn't architecture school still as tough as it used to be?

daer

School is difficult but having attended a good one I can tell you everyone was very courteous and professional. It's the bad schools where abuse takes place.

Dear AlinaF and other concerned citizens for Free Speech,

Most of you may not be aware of this, but around 40 years ago a secret society of Canadian Mounties who read the newspaper every morning banded together to form an American Propaganda Machine (mainly socialist liberal agenda)  to infiltrate and redirect the thinking of the USA. 

Image result for canadian mountie goof


Heavily influenced and very in tune with Marchal McCluhan (also Canadian) theories on Media, they predicted the control of the internet and most importantly Social Media. The word "red" in "reddit" references the Red Maple Leaf, most people don't know this.

Many have guessed that Douglas Coupland's (also Canadian) had a heavy hand in teaching the Russians how to control American thought and help elect Trump.  The Russian spy field guide - Shopping In Jail written by Coupland has been found glove boxes of cars owned by Canadian Mounties and Vlady Putin.

Only one American Duo ever tried to call-out this Canadian Mountie Secret Society of Media Control, also know as CMSSMC - pronounced - Ca-nuck!   South Park - Blame Canada!

Bear with me here.  Paul - Canadian.  NS - Canadian.  They control the thinking on architecture in the media today. Frank Gehry - Canadian.  Maple Syrup - Canadian...

Alina,

What is your issue with Non Sequitur's post on Thread Central about his son? Why wouldn't a loving and caring father be proud to share about it with people who he came to be comfortable about it. Mothers do that to. It is this non-architectural... human caring aspect that I like about this forum. It reminds us that we are talking to real people not a bunch of bots. Maybe you may have a son or daughter (if you don't already have a son or daughter)? Wouldn't you like your professional community to have humanity and heart to care about you beyond just your professional career.

Sure, not every thread or topic on Archinect would be appropriate but Thread Central has been for a long time been a general chat thread to talk about what's on your mind and not just architecture related. 

I can tell you first hand that a person isn't banned because they agree or disagree with Non Sequitur. They are banned or have some of their posts or threads deleted when they are being an unreasonable jerk. Non Sequitur is actually irrelevant to such decision. If you were being an unreasonable jerk to me, you could be banned or have such posts deleted because of your conduct. 

People are actually rarely banned but their posts or threads maybe 'nuked' for its inappropriateness are more likely. Alina, since you created this thread, it seems like you aren't banned actually. You might have your posting privileges in some threads turned off because of conduct. I can't post of TC for conduct I done awhile back that someone. Whether that conduct justifies still having such a block is up to interpretation but to say the least, I find a way to get my points across. 


Jun 8, 19 3:50 pm

Hey Rick, I don't there is such a thing as a 'resonable' jerk. A jerk is always a jerk.

RickB-Astoria

Ok. I get ya. There is different levels of jerks. Minor ones. Some that maybe a little bit of a jerk in response to something another person did. In a sense, being snarky is in a way being a jerk. However, I was trying to convey a point where a jerk's conduct reaches a level that is unreasonable and not tolerable in the social culture of the forum users. We all to some level conduct ourselves in a manner to others that maybe interpreted as being a jerk. There is a point where conduct is intolerable and result in a person being banned. However, I disagree that a jerk is not always a jerk because the always part applies the temporal eternum to the characteristics of a person. In other words, you would be conveying that a jerk will always be a jerk for eternity and can never be different. In which case, that's not true. A person can change aspects of themselves.

tttt

When I say always I don't mean for eternity. I mean that you can't apply reason to this kind of behavior.

AlinaF, if the site's leadership wants to ban or censor people for not agreeing with Non Sequitur (as unlikely as that is) - or for having names starting with A, or for being the 14th person to post on a Tuesday, or any other reason, reasonable or nonsensical, that's their prerogative.  The forum is not a democracy. You've got no standing to demand answers or policy changes.

babyarchitect1

Do you really believe that's how things work??

RickB-Astoria

Actually, that is legally how it works. 

This is a privately owned website and is like the old dial-up electronic bulletin boards in that you are on someone else's website. With exception of GDPR, there is practically zero legal recourse for almost anything. There is no laws that regulates how private websites owned by a private entity operates except where commerce (transaction of money for goods or services) and data privacy laws like the EU's GDPR. Outside of that, this site is not really bound to any regulations. A person can be suspended or banned without cause if the site owners so wishes. When you are on this site, you are kind of like in some one else's own private home or business where a person can be refused services to anyone without any requirement of any stated indication. Remember that. 

The internet is not governed by the U.S. or any one country. Just like when you call someone's home or business, a resident or business can simply hang up on you. This is not all that different. There is long standing precedence in the U.S. and many countries with long history of computerized telecommunication. Therefore, that is factually how it works per law. 

Surely, the site owner may consider how their decisions reflect on them but it isn't a requirement by regulations. It is more a social relationship norm between site owner and site users to take stuff like how banning someone may appear. I have been using computerized telecommunication for over 30 years.

babyarchitect1

It was more like a sarcastic response because yes, that is how this website and any website works, but also I don't think there's anything wrong with wanting change or initiating/starting a conversation about it, especially here on this website regardless of status or 'standing'...

RickB-Astoria

While there are a great number of laws and regulations that involves the internet, there is practically zero laws regarding how a web site / internet web forum operates and how they handle disciplinary actions of users on their web site or web forum. In short, website owners / web forum owners/admins makes their own rules or decisions based on whatever they deem. In other words, it's akin to house rules and we are guests in this house. This is really the best analogy here. We can be kicked out of the house whenever the house owner decides to by whatever basis that person feels without any verbal or written reason given. Plain and simple as that.

babyarchitect1

We are in agreement, I understand that what they (the people who run Architect) say goes in all cases and without requiring explanation.. but I also still feel like AlinaF can at least question the norm here even if it is unlikely to make a difference. Nothing would ever evolve in this world if we said, "hey we have no power to change this, so let's just do nothing" (Like i'm sure most of the people using Archinect forums often would have no problem with them removing the academia tab entirely) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

babyarchitect1, There once was a movement about wanting change on archinect. The movement once "occupied" a prominent location on page 1 of these forums, but it has since been largely ignored and replaced by piecemeal interactions like this one. Its demands, once chanted by the masses (of like 10 people), are now silent echos closely guarded by a select few, too scared to voice their opinions for fear of repercussions (mostly public humiliation). They silently wait for the day where they can rise up like a phoenix and make their demands heard once again ... more random buttons, moar font options, like button pls, more white space (actually that one may have backfired temporarily, but showed the oppressors were listening).

babyarchitect1

The entire nature of the website would need a revamp if people who are not "seasoned professional architects" aren't welcome here on Archinect. I'm still pretty new to the forums, but not without knowing a little into the drama that exists... lol

I think improvement would go a lot further and encourage more people to act accordingly if we don't just complain and present with a negativity. Start with "How can we improve this website and forum?" and "Here are my ideas..." Otherwise, we put the other people into a defensive position before communicating the idea. People tend to rend sequentially just like they would hear a speech. You may lightly put people into a disequillibrium but you have to be careful to not put people off in a defensive state where they just aren't going to care or listen to your thoughts.

Archinect is a place for architects to connect. How many of you actually use this site to connect? I doubt too many of the complainers above even have intentions of this. Many think this is your personal free advice forum and homework hotline. This, disappointment. Thus, lashing out. Change your expectations.

It is mostly residential, but not all. The common tie is the entrepreneurial spirit, so many are self-employed. I've made several connections there and gotten a few gigs there too. THIS PROFESSION IS ONE BIG HAPPY FAMILY. Cheers!

babyarchitect1

What is your definition of connecting exactly? In my office people are asking for advice all the time. It's a collaborative environment between architects of all levels, engineers, interior designers, landscape architects, clients, developers...I mean eliminating the idea of advice from archinect would remove the entire forum capabilities of allowing people to reply. If you don't want to give your advice why not just click on something else?? I mean of course complaining doesn't solve anything, but saying archinect isn't a place for advice, nor a place for students is a bit overdramatic. If this were truly a place of architects 'networking' you would be required to provide your full name and not a username.

babyarchitect1

I don't disagree, I haven't been here very long and have seen my share of stupid posts on this forum...but I also know there aren't a lot of options to choose from. Even though I never had an account back then, I visited the site often as a young HS student to read articles that I thought were interesting (before I even considered architecture as a path). When I transitioned into the architecture program in college years later, there wasn't a single person I knew that even had the vaguest idea about architecture or the profession. (half my family and friends still don't get that architecture is a five year degree.) I think I could have made smarter decisions about school/direction/goals/architecture as a profession/learning if I had had advice from various people within the architecture community that know something other than the one upper class man fourth year student at my own school. Heck, i would have realized how crazy it was that my studio professors teaching me architectural design had never actually designed a real building before. Maybe it's just me but I don't mind giving the occasional feedback/advice (that I can give) to someone whose shoes I once was in. You can check my own post history to reveal that some of my own posts were probably stupid advice questions. But don't worry I will be sure to tell them about the 'unknown legend' that is of Non Sequitur of Archinect ;)

"saying archinect isn't a place for advice, nor a place for students is a bit overdramatic." 

Who said this? I don't think this is what tintt said above at all. She can correct me if I'm wrong. I think plenty of people have come here for advice and plenty of students are getting help here as well (I know I did as a student). 

The biggest difference between the posts that get the snark and the posts that get good responses has everything to do with how the questions are asked and the effort put into figuring it out beforehand. 

There is a difference between "How do I draw XYZ? I don't know where to start and my homework is due tomorrow?" and "I'm a student who has an assignment to draw XYZ. I'm not getting much guidance from my professor even though I've gone to them to ask. I'm posting photos of my previous attempts. My professor said that the highlighted portion is incorrect. What do you guys think? I'm finding it the same way in technical documents that I've found here and here. Is my professor out of touch with current practice, or is there something I'm missing here?

If NS is guilty of anything, it is responding to the first poster with snark and keeping the thread alive. Interestingly enough, here is an example where the only difference between NS's and AlinaF's replies is about 7 minutes. Both responded with some pretty decent snark right in line with what you would expect on this or any other forum. Pot, meet kettle.

Non Sequitur

^You certainly went deep to get that one.

I got lucky. It was probably the 2nd post I clicked on in AlinaF's comment history that looked snarky, and there it was presented all nicely with a little bow on top.

babyarchitect1

I'm not defending either NS or AlinaF. I was referring to this part of tintt's post above ​ "Many think this is your personal free advice forum and homework hotline. This, disappointment. Thus, lashing out. Change your expectations." I'm no expert, but using context clues in this sentence above i get the sense that advice is not welcome for Tintt. And anyone who has been on archinect's forums knows that general disdain, towards students, which is only a partially related discussion here. I don't really care about the snark and I think a lot of what NS responds is hilarious, but there are times when people could still have a little bit of consideration for others who are still learning and still figuring it all out. Architecture isn't as cut and dry as other professions for lots of reasons I guess. I ask for advice on here all the time but I also try and start discussions as well and not just 'hey I have a question about xyz, but rather hey I know not a single other person that can help me maybe one person on this forum can steer me in a specific direction or allow me to consider another outlet." If my question is stupid, telling me its stupid is fine with me. lol

babyarchitect1

But in all honesty sometimes I get on the forums of archinect just to see what's happening with all the snark :) NS included

Non Sequitur

Cheers baby, but I think you might have misconstrued Tintt’s point.

Yeah, I think you're missing her point. Those that come here to connect and be a part of the community can seek out free advice and homework help without much issue. People coming here demanding free advice or to use it as a homework hotline with little intention on connecting and becoming a part of the community aren't received as well. The difference is friends helping friends vs strangers demanding help from other strangers.

curtkram

you go to school to learn how to learn. Many people here are probably pretty great mentors in real life, but if you get out of school thinking you can learn by asking assholes you find on the internet to carry you, we're all fucked. It's hard to get a building built. You can't treat your contractor with kid gloves and to be honest, if your contractor is nice to you it's probably because something is really fucked and they're hiding it from you because they're afraid of conflict.

babyarchitect1

Maybe I misinterpreted Tintts point earlier but you are also misinterpreting mine curtkram. You're overgeneralizing the idea of asking for advice or asking questions. We're not even talking about building buildings here. Asking the odd question with a very diverse group of people and backgrounds for responses or to create discussion isn't asking for strangers to carry you in the profession at all. I mean looking at your post history one of your posts was literally titled "question about revit' ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Even better than the original

Now there's a guy with an architecture degree making the big bucks.

mariosk

To summarise, I think most people on hear agree that noone really enjoys reading NonSequitur's comments. 


End of discussion.

Strange, that's only yours and Alina's conclusion.

tintt

There's an ignore button for that.

Non Sequitur

Tintt, stop dragging us all down with that sensible information. I might have to put you on ignore now.

rsrs

I agree mariosk. Tintt good point, let's all ignore Non Sequitur.

Non Sequitur

^love it. Keep the nonsensical targeting coming.

Frankly, I'm not too concerned about Non Sequitur's comments. What I think is most true is that most people on here (not on hear) don't really enjoy really care about reading this non-sense thread. There's a basic internet 'law' in that there will always be people whom you will disagree with on something or another or frequently for that matter. 

There are numerous times I have disagreed with Non Sequitur but it doesn't mean he doesn't have the same privilege to post his opinions as I or you or anyone else. As long as he's relatively civil which as far as I can tell he has been.

Ricky, you're still at the top of "architect members to have a beer with" list. Folks like Mariosk and Alinaf are just pesants in unhappy positions within the profession (see their long history) and are soured that no-one cares to give them their own safe space.

As the good doctor often says:

"Life sucks - get a fucking helmet."
- Dr. Denis Leary

RickB-Astoria

lol. amen to that.

Non Sequitur

Dr. Denis Leary is a national treasure and the only prophet that matters.

Leary is a hack, it says so on Wikipedia https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hack_(comedy)

Non Sequitur

Unmmm, Rando, I believe that comment fits the criteria for censorship. Begone with that blasphemy!

joseffischer

Every month Non should necro this just so the newbies know not to mess with him.

Non Sequitur

Joe, I'm just waiting to see what kind of spambot finds this thread and brings it back to life.

"Why is Denis Leary a star while Bill Hicks is unknown? Answer: Because there's no cure for cancer."

Non Sequitur

Most know who Hicks is tho... but I'd upvote your comment if I had the option.
