P@ssed at RooshV for Banning Me.

Postby zacb » Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:55 pm

That makes me really angry. I actually found the lifestyle se tion quite useful and full of hustlers (in a good way) but no soone rdid I post on the forums did I get banned for being a troll. If you can check it out, check out zacb posts. I replyed to an older thread, asked what peoples views on politic was, asked about game and how it applied to my situation, asked about hard asset investing, and maybe one other thing, and I was banned. Which do you think got me banned? Thanks

What reason did they give for banning you? I should make a video soon directed at him for being a very poor moderator on his forum. The guy must be a control freak. Probably, he's not very pleasant or fun to be around in person either, even if he is intelligent and insightful.

Why did you write "p@ssed" instead of "pissed"?

Generally when people become "gurus" they become assholes as well.

For example, Mark Rippetoe is a well known strength training writer/coach in USA. I asked an odd, but real question, about strength training related to my sport, and also expressed my own opinions that differed from his. His forum is moderated, as in he approves posts. Instead of just telling me he doesn't like my posts and to stop posting, he's just passive aggressive and just doesn't approve any of my posts.

But generally any person that claims to know everything or be the best will generally be a dick. This applies to everything in life. Listen to people who have an attitude of humility instead of "gurus" who state their way is the only way for every person regardless of circumstances.

Well I wrote pissed, because I remember you saying something about using certain terms, like the f bomb, and so it kind of stuck for other words. Lol. He said I was a troll, but the only things I could think of is asking about how game would be different for people with Aspergers, would game work as well in smaller towns, maybe resurrecting an old thread, or talking about politics. But the weird thing is that I never was trying to harm him or his business. And the reason I found his site interesting was on account of the lifestyle side of the site and the guides. Otherwise, I had no compelling reason to sign up. I wish I could appeal it, but his loss I guess.

How come I never became an asshole then?

Zac, did Roosh himself ban you, or his moderators? Maybe you can email him personally and see if he will intervene? His email address is on his website.

If his moderators are unfair to people, and Roosh knows and doesn't care, then technically that makes him a cold unfeeling asshole. Not a nice guy. This means the women in his life are not fortunate and we should pity them.

Well, your site doesn't really say you'll be doomed to hell for not going abroad or anything. You're just like "if you think this is cool, then follow my ebook/join my forum."

Also, you ask people here for advice and are open to criticism regarding your lifestyle or whatnot.

But also, you're not really "successful." As in, you are still on the road to happier abroad and haven't figured it all out yet. And you're honest about it at least on these forums, if not your main page.

Here's a quote describing the situation:

"Whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are
always so sure of themselves, and wiser people are full of
doubts"
― George Bernard Shaw

In my opinion, Rooshv is one of the best moderated sites on the Internet. He has a zero tolerance policy for trolls, and as a result there are a lot more serious posts. Additionally, more men there are actually living abroad and giving useful information. There has to be some way of making it more costly to be a troll, and they have found a good formula. Also, they limit enrollment to only one time a month, so if someone trolls they have to sit out for a month at the very least. Every website's policy is set by the owner who can do what he wants.

Do you know his email? I will check around, but I don't know if it was Roosh or the moderator.

People are giving Roosh V too much credit here. I voluntarily left his forum.

The forum is LOADED with bullshit info all over the travel sites. Stuff like all women in a given area love Black men when most don't in reality, stuff about locations when the given bar was changed about 10 years back, and stuff about how things work in a given area when in reality they don't work like that at all (customs, currency, culture, markets, etc.).

Roosh bans anyone and everyone. Most new users are banned. The guy who banned you was probably his piece of shit mod tuthmosis. The site is full of nonsense and you should not bother with it at all.

It has been two days, and no reply. Sheesh, talk about insecure. I have heard other people claim he runs his forum like a dictator. Apparently they are right.

Yes, his forum is little bit fascist. They want the elite there at least the normal. Asperger guys, minorities, midgets, indians are not very wellcome.
