Have you read anything I've typed out at all?

I'm not going to explain anything to you. This line of conversation is a dead end. I don't like you very much, either. I find your prose demeaning.

Again, I'm not surprised you're being intentionally vague. This is standard operating procedure for nonsense claims. I have read what you've typed. And I'm sorry that you don't like me, but... well I actually don't care that much.

What are you going to do? Hex me?


Is his flamebaiting/trolling/goading actionable now, or is this just his personality? He's been rude, insulting, and insistent I tell him what he want so he can - in his own words - judge me and I'm growing bored of it.

Telekinesis. I'd like to be able to change the channel on the TV without having to get up and get the remote if it's on the other side of the room.


This one is... like... suuuuper off topic?

The paranormal ability of telekinesis is, like, not witchcraft.

Oh you're right. I don't have to respond. I just thought I'd be more respectful than you had been. And also less demeaning. And less judgmental. For example, I didn't say your faith was fake. Just that you have no right, nor the knowledge, to judge mine. Both things others have noticed.

Your “faith” is fake, but your pathetic devotion to convincing people on internet site otherwise is very much real.


Blatant flaming/accusation of fake faith.

Just to be clear, this is very much a pot calling the kettle black with Bluepillar being very condescending, insisting that people who don't take witchcraft seriously are ignorant of history, and talking down to people to the tune of:
Bluepillar wrote:Look, kid.

and,
Bluepillar wrote:Aww, does it bother you that I won't answer your questions?.


I don't particularly mind. So wouldn't have escalated this to moderation personally. But since Bluepillar apparently does mind A LOT, I will be removing myself from the thread effective immediately.

Up to you folks, of course, if you think further action is necessary.


EDIT: also, and maybe it's a trivial thing to get caught up on, but I've never "in my own words" claimed to want to "judge" them at all. A search of my recent post history reveals 0 instances of the word "judge" being used.
EDIT 2: Well, except for just now. Obviously.

"not taking witchcraft seriously" is different from completely derailing the thread, insulting faiths present on 6 continents as fake or "trivial" derivations of older things, demanding that I tell you my faith so I can be judged by you, claiming to know a lot about witchcraft/pagan beliefs despite, apparently, thinking witches only popped up within the past century. trying to force me into "proving" my faith (which I think 3 people have done so far), and deciding that I can't meet your condescension with my own, more muted condescension. And it was waaaay more muted than the paragraphs I got. You're a fucking hypocrite, dude.

And you're upset cause I called you kid? Your proof is that I called you "kid" after you acted so childishly? What even.

After your "go ahead and call my faith fake" thing, which you already did to mine, I'm pretty sure you've realized I'm reporting you because you're ruining my fucking thread and I believe you to have broken the rules, not cause you're upsetting me. You just crossed a line, and I wanted you out of the thread before you and your friend Orderia upset anyone else.

And this isn't a debate thread. This is moderation. Stay out of my report when it's about you, please.

Ope. This one has been remedied. We're all on another topic, now.

Go ahead, say my faith is fake. I really don't mind.


Why ever would I do to him what he did to me? That would be hypocrisy.

And it was waaaay more muted than the paragraphs I got. You're a fucking hypocrite, dude.

It was more along the lines of "I don't really know what you mean by witchcraft, please specify." And also, "most of the forms of witchcraft you describe are unrelated to each other, and some of them seem kind of trivial (like herbalism.)" I don't think witchcraft popped up in the last century, I just think the modern imagining of it is largely unrelated to many of the older practices you link it to. And, as I said, your protests are the pot calling the kettle black. I didn't say I'm not condescending, I just said it's odd to hear you complain about it.

Also, the underlined seems unnecessary.

Also also, I don't think I ever actually asked you to prove anything. The "what are you going to do, hex me?" thing could be construed as that, but it was really meant to be more tongue-and-cheek. Perhaps I should have added a :p

I don't believe disputing the authenticity of a religion is against site rules. And I feel that this is all well within the realm of a debate thread. However, it is true that it is not exactly on-topic (although still clearly relevant to the idea of cursing), and furthermore: noting that it has upset you, I have stopped posting in the thread.

And this isn't a debate thread. This is moderation. Stay out of my report when it's about you, please.

The accused are allowed to respond in these threads.

I don't find it odd to complain about toxicity and thread derailing at all. In fact, you did ruin the thread.

Oh, right. How about this: I don't want to talk to you rn, then. I find further interaction with you today unpalatable.

I really did wish we had a waving emoji, though... or any other emoji. They remind me of the ones from proboards for some reason. Like OLD proboards. Before tapatalk purchased it

But I suspect that there are people in the world that are capable of real magic - though they surely do not advertise their knowledge on the internet. So my question is, if someone casts a real curse on somebody else, should they be executed, imprisoned, or something else?


why is Ordreria singling me out? smh. this is connected to my other witchcraft thread, aft3r Orderia being Orderia in... well... places. they started a beef with me for no reason, and it started leaking into other threads

I know this is a report thread, but I have a 2 questions regarding the Hexing thread, I was going to report the said thread because of poor OP, but didn't because I had seen 2 mods comment on it, so I thought it was allowed to stay open. (In hindsight I should of still reported it)
So my 2 questons are how come the 2 mods didn't take action on it and are mods allowed to close threads without it been reported in moderation?

  1. Moderators have plenty of responsibilities to tackle in NS and/or RL. We're volunteers who moderate on our spare time; consider Mod Emeritus Ransium, whose RL responsibilities have ultimately precluded him from committing to moderation and editing issues.
  2. Yes. Consider threads that are little more than glorified blog posts on NSG; when we spot them, we lock them, along with the occasional friendly reminder that NSG is not the poster's blog.

I hope this post answers your questions and would like to remind you that this thread is not for discussion.


Thanks!
