Bias in the Moderators of TOT
« on: December 17, 2002, 10:20:13 PM »
I created this poll to see what everybody thinks of the Moderators of this forum.

Are they doing their job?

Are they fair and balanced?

Do they represent the members of WCC?

Should there be more diversity?

My views are this:
I don't think that the current moderators represent WCC, and more specifically, the people who post in the Train of Thought.

Blade and Doggy are open minded individuals who I feel are fair and balanced. I look at their views with an open mind and really take in what they have to say because 9 times out of 10, they bring something positive to the discussion and also a very valuable viewpoint. They are also willing to look at things from an unbiased standpoint. I commend them for this. Thanks for being great mods.

Finite: Where should I start? Let’s not forget he got his mod position revoked for deleting posts to make his argument stronger, and bashing other religions. He is close minded, hypocritical, and most of all a bigot.

Tech: Threatens others with violence, pretends his name is osama bin laden, shuts down discussion criticizing his religion, and makes fun of others for bringing information to the board and holding people accountable for their words.

I To da geezy: I really haven't seen him post much, so I can't comment.

Look at the religious preference of the current mods:
Doggy aka Pitbull: Muslim
Infinite Ibrahim Abdul Hamid: Muslim
KING TECH QUADAFI: Muslim
I TO DA GEEZY: I'm assuming he is a religion other than Muslim.
Blade: Sikh

The point I’m trying to make is that this board is heavily Muslim biased. I have no problem with Muslims, but I would really like to see members of other religions in mod positions. If this is really the train of thought, then discussion criticizing others religions shouldn't be shut down, rather they should be encouraged. Currently, this isn't happening.  

Vote up.

Edited by Engelwood...
Trauma pointed out that I had Blade down as a different religion.

For real though...I think either Trauma, Engel-Wood, Cwalker, or myself (For more Jewish moderation) should be elected as a mod for this board...PeACe

why thanks NIK

but i really don't  want that responsibilty for this type of board, the only boards i'd want to moderate would be MY album review board (that was my baby lol) or an idea i have for a forum that i'd want to do with trauma (a non hip hop forum)


but seriously i think TOT isn't very representative of the average WCC poster , i mean the majority if not all of the muslum population at this board are mods here , when the majority of WCC is either quazi christian , christian, or non religious


for equality i'd put 1 christian, 1 muslum, 1 jew, and 1 non religious as  mods. we could vote for who we'd want out of those choices . equal representation


i dont know how or why anyone would disagree with that

Sorry if that sounded kinda hostile... I'll be sure to rush over to church tomorrow morning to confess.

So the bias is we've got 2 muslims and one of "other deviations".
Quite a fair spread... not going to hustle up NIK 'just because he's jewish'
or someone else 'just because they're buddist' or whatever

p.s. Like Jake said above about not wanting to be a mod.
Trauma could be a mod and can be if he wants, but doesnt want to.


being a mod or not hasnt affected anybodies attitudes anyways, and it shouldnt.
