I guess I'm about to get banned or something, for the record that's not what happened.Clockwork_Ghost wrote:Cam Revillot has been removed from the group after making threats to conduct anti-social behaviour within the school.

This is a reminder to everyone - there is no one set way of doing things, there are always two sides to the coin, and different things work differently for different people. Claiming that your way is the only way is ignorant and arrogant.
If you disagree with something I say here then question it - I am still learning to, and my ego isn't so fragile that I fear being wrong. Much of what I write about is my own experiences, my own views, I'm not a guru and I don't want what I say to be taken as gospel. Thank you to everyone who is taking part here, it is really great to be able to speak with you all.
I just don't like there only being one side of the story out there, in a post I don't have access to reply to, so here's my side.
(plus he literally just invited this reply "If you disagree with something I say here then question it")
The thing I took offense to was not having my views questioned, it was the ignorance and arrogance which clockwork mentioned above, which he conveniently doesn't seem to connect to the original complaint even though he acknowledges it right here. Clearly it just makes me sound sillier to say my complaint was that someone questioned my views.
All I heard from that was an automated forum email saying the request was closed before finding that he posted about the report publicly in such a way that it was obvious who made the complaint.
I messaged him to say that it's not really cool to out someone publicly when they come to you in confidence privately for help with a situation, and that I might as well just handle it myself next time someone is being a dick instead of filing a report.
He apparently disliked this criticism of his moderation so much that he decided to put as negative a spin as possible on everything that transpired, and kicked me out of the school for "antisocial threats", telling me how poorly he takes "threats", demanded an apology from me (which I gave him), told me he talked to the mods about having me banned, and embarrassed me publicly AGAIN by posting this biased story about what transpired privately and how he is punishing me, saying I made "antisocial threats" which sounds way more sinister than saying "oh dear god, he's going to just continue the argument another dude started with him rather than report it to me so I can embarrass him."

1. politely asked for help privately
2. shoots it down publicly
3. I privately say that wasn't really cool to do as a mod
4. He attacks me publicly again, and kicks me out of class for "antisocial behavior"
The big "antisocial threat" was that I would confront the person being "ignorant and arrogant" to me personally next time instead of reporting the post since I got screwed for that in both the action department, and the discretion department.
This simple little PM from me in response to a huge breach of nettiquette is what he describes as "became angry when I asked that people accept that other people have views different to their own." and "making threats to conduct anti-social behaviour within the school"
Wow thanks for publicly announcing I privately reported a post.
Guess I'll just publicly tell him he's acting like a dick next time and avoid looking like a tattle tale for trying to not be confrontational in your classroom.
The whole thing was a teeny tiny issue that could have been handled with 1 reply to me, but instead it was "moderated" into this.
demonized publicly by a mod who got defensive when I said he embarrassed me by posting publicly about our private conversation when I came to him for help.
It was great while it lasted, and thank you everyone for your help answering my questions etc. I will continue practicing on my own even though I sincerely wished to integrate with this community. Keep changing reality and doing your thing! Just don't report someones post whatever you do! haha.
