I got warned for making a “pit-worthy” post in MPSIMS. Post link is here.
I don’t think the warning is warranted. I didn’t break any MPSIMS rules. I did not insult Silver Tyger Girl. I said her website looks like something I made when I was 11, because it does. I said I snickered when I saw it, because I did. I was providing an honest criticism of a childish webpage. At first I thought it was a joke. Then reading her increasingly irrational replies, I saw that it was not.
I didn’t say that STG was a terrible artist who should give up any aspirations of being a graphic designer. THAT would be a pit-worthy statement. But I didn’t make that statement, nor am I making it now.
Because she’s a speshool snowfwake who was just trying to get huggles and loves for her pretty pictures, and people to confirm how good she is and how unfair it is that she hasn’t got a job as Head Artist at Marvel Comics yet, and we were all just great big dickbag jerks who were only there to tell her how much she sucked.
Disingenuousness does not become you, rachelellogram. Others were blunt yes, but they also were discussing the merits and weaknesses of her work (including what they saw as her attitude toward work). You jumped in and compared her professional output to that of an 11-year-old — and jeered at it. That’s an insult.
Czarcasm came in to moderate earlier in the thread, admonishing all to quit the pit-worthy statements, which would include the OP’s “shut the fuck up” type responses. I did not see her making any more after his note; I’d be happy to go back and check.
As far as the “special snowflake” characterizations of the OP, I have no idea what you’re talking about, Sierra Indigo. She doesn’t get any special pass. I saw people ganging up when they smelled blood — the blunt critiques of her work mentioned above, and taking that as license to behave nastily. That’s why I issued warnings.
Not seeing any fault with the modding here. ** Czarcasm** said stop it or you’ll get in trouble. He’s a mod. He gets to do that. You didn’t stop it. You got in trouble. Ellen enforced the instruction previously given. If you needed clarification of the instruction, you could have started a thread here to ask for it…before posting.
