Who gave (and continues to give) Tye McQueen his authority for his autocratic domination of PerlMonks?
Spoken with your usual lack of tack, and missing the mark to boot. I think the question to ask, suggestion to make is that, given the general lack of oversight by TPF, the number of semi-active to barely active gods, and past abuses of position (the cabal acting as troll enablers a couple years back is a good example), isn't it time for some new gods? Or maybe even a democratically elected governing body (or at least an oversight committee)? I'm not sure how well those would go over, or even work for that matter, but at least they are something we could have an interesting discussion about.
As you no doubt noticed, raising personal grievances does not get you very far. Partly because of perceived slights, ingrained biases due to long held grudges, etc. Consider, for example, your view of tye juxtaposed with sundialsvc4's view of you.
And what of the result? Whether your account was hacked, a god disabled it, or the fallout from some random event billions of years ago finally hit earth, causing some anomaly to occur, you have weakened your position. And if people believe a god temporarily banned your account you have significantly weakened your position, because who will risk an even lengthier ban by joining your crusade?
I do not know what actually happened, but dang, what an incredibly damaging, self inflicted first salvo!
