Soundy asked for more examples of his moderating. I gave multiple examples. Then in a PM he told me he is going to ban me for listing multiple examples.

Carry on the good fight, Soonetters.

So what makes someone "left" or "right"?
How do we define them?


Well now I'm confused.

So, in a thread in the soapbox, you (Aristotle) eluded to a member named "Soc67". Who is this "Soc67" since I don't see any posts by him/her here? I understand that by posting in the politics section, I am immune from the wrath of Soundbear, so that is why I am posting here.

I have been told by a member her in a PM who Soc 67 really is, and I didn't know until that PM was sent to me. Is that a violation of SooNet rules?

It's okay for Soc to engage in such an activity, but should one of us had engaged in such an activity originally, a banning would have been forthcoming.

You announced, basically, that Soc 67, is somebody special or someone with two identities. Well those of us who have no idea what is going on don't see why someone is getting away with whatever! I had and still have no idea who Soc 67 is. In fact, I don't recall seeing any posts by said person lately.

I am sorry but it just reminds me of kids in the school yard, whispering and telling secrets. Some of us have no idea what is going on. I guess we are supposed to be just like mushrooms....kept in the dark and fed ****!

Just to set the record straight, for the titillated scandal ho's among us, I have only ever had one account here, the same account, since 2002.

There is a function you can use here, where you ask the administrator for a name change, on your account. It isn't a deceptive practice, you don't need to have multiple accounts, or engage in clandestine espionage, or break any kind of rules. You simply request a name change from the administrator.

I was here for a few years, gave it up for a while, and upon my return I thought it would be good to start fresh, so I asked for a name change. So, soc_67 became 'The Left Sock'. It wasn't an attempt to escape any former identity, because anyone with a working brain could figure out that I was the 'soc who left'.

But it does seem to fascinate some around here, for reasons I can only speculate on. It's too bad really, because new members won't have a clue what some people are obsessing over, and it ruins the fun for them.

Hopefully, this will clear things up nicely, and life can go on, and the conspiracy theorists can seek greener pasture.

Nice try, but that doesn't fly. When first confronted about being Soc 67 you tried to pretend you didn't know what that meant. You finally admitted it after all the tell-tale signs were readily available for all to see:

1) an obsession with America

2) an insatiable desire to rewrite history, and take on America's glories as Canada's

3) extreme anger when bested in a debate

4) consistent distortion of facts

That's some heavy delusion, coming from somewhere, and since it isn't coming from me, perhaps you should look within?

Left Sock has made no attempt to hide his identity... It came out "officially" on some silly useless thread about nothing that you probably missed Igor, no one can blame you for that. I suspect Aristotle is just playing "super spy guy" games and is showing off his ninja skills.
but that's all you missed Igor, he never made it a secret.

He didn't make a scene out of it, but did try a half-hearted denial at first, but by that time everybody knew it was him,there was no denying the style of posts, etc

I have read the terms of use I don't think that is the rulebook.

I am positive that the rule against Identifying a poster pertains to their REAL LIFE Identity. Not their handle in the make believe cyber world. WHO CARES if the sock used to be soc67, Big Whoppie.

What bearing does it really have on anything?

Can anyone give me any plausible reason what effect this has on anything? (That is besides giving SB another weapon to ban people.)

I find it asinine that a mod would think this is somehow disruptive to cyber harmony.

I am curious if the sock got a demerit point a few weeks back when he was trying to suggest that I was RW's Alter Ego?

If I was trying to be deceptive, why the hell would I change my name to 'The Left Sock'? It doesn't take a rocket scientist to make the connection from my original name, but it sure seems to have thrown a monkey wrench into some people.

And that was years ago now. Time to move on, kiddies!

No wrench at all, it's just that you thought you were clever enough to pull it off. But, as I said, the obsession with America plus the ease at which you would get angry when proven wrong made it all too clear your ruse would not fly.

And that was years ago now. Time to move on, kiddies

Try to escape your past, you can't.

That stuff can never fade away...when you're 100% convinced you are the vanguard against a well-planned world takeover by religious people, with their HQ here on Soonet and led by a Soonetter and his minions, and the fate of the free secular world depends on your ability to win the fight, that stuff will live on forever.
