So it is clear that this websites moderators/ creators dont want to promote OPEN MINDED thinking and ideas… they want to be nazis and basically tell people to discuss life in strictly positive terms or ban them (the irony)
What is the point in that ? Where do we draw the line ? So any idea that goes against the idea that life must be a beautiful joyous thing is not accepted on this website ?
LOL. you should be ashamed
@fucksake, Dunno. I have seen appointed mods become a little corrupt and drunk with power, sensoring things a little prematurely. But the core administration is pretty lenient and open-minded unless you’re consistently attacking people or trolling. You’re totally welcome to have a different view as long as you’re not shoving it down people’s throats and insulting them. If you think you’ve been unjustly moderated report that to Martijn or something and I’m sure they would look into it.
I don’t mind the moderation, I just found a site with deeper and more open-minded threads lol. And not much about “My boyfriend left me, what do I do next” stuff on it. Anyone interested in far deeper (open minded) disscussions can pm me if interested. Many here may already know of this site.
@spaceghost, He’s obviously angry. He made a comment earlier in someone’s thread about their marijuana experience, and he said something very troll-like that had no significance or purpose and was just rude to the OP. That’s why he was banned. Anyway, regarding Jon, he took a leave of absence, but I believe he’s back, or was back for a brief period. I saw him post something a few days ago. Haven’t seen him since though.

@fucksake, If you have any problems with the way things go here, please feel free to PM me so we can discuss the matter.
Could you also be more specific why you think highexistence is not open minded? I have been participating on quite some forums and I think highexistence has an above average tolerance level.
Actually our policy is that we almost never ban and definitely not because we disagree with somebodies opinion. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion as long as your opinion does not directly harm other beings. I do not believe we would have grown as big as we have done if we would be as close minded as you are talking about.
We are very much open for feedback and discussions regarding these matters, because we are eager to learn. We all make mistakes.
@versai, “I have seen appointed mods become a little corrupt and drunk with power, sensoring things a little prematurely.”
I am also quite interested about this. Could you be more specific please? Also with these matters, you can contact me to discuss these things anytime. I will either pass it on to Martijn or Jordan, or try to resolve it, but there is always room for a dialogue.
@fucksake, If you do not feel like discussing this publicly you can also send me a private message. Which topic was closed? What was it about? Do you have an idea who may have closed it? When was it closed?
@filipek, It’s nothing really worth making a complaint about. I tend to let things work themselves out, which they did. The specific mod I had in mind is no longer a mod. I’m sure others took notice of the behavior and the dialogue already took place. I brought it up as an example for the OP that bad moderation isn’t tolerated and the admins do take it seriously and won’t hesitate to make a change if they feel they should.
@chodebalm, yeah thats me. . and i would love to know exactly what message caused the mods to ban me.. i did not troll or post anything offensive, i simply stated my opinion about certain aspects of reality and society . if you want to stick your head in the sand and pretend things dont exist then this websites purpose is hypocritical at best, and childish at worst.
@filipek, @kahlib, @monkeyzazu, i made comments about the nature of life and “happiness” being just out body trying to trick us into reproducing. thats all it is. every thing we do we do because sex drive. its all to survive and procreate. i feel like we are a virus and we trick ourselves into thinking otherwise. every single thing we do .. just to stick our dick into something and survive. every negative action we make is frustration just because we cant do this. this view seemed to make a mod so butthurt/ frightened he felt the need to ban me..
my argument that “happiness” isnt really “real” . i for one do not find happiness in anything . behind all my feeble actions is the underlying truth that we are nothing but bacteria spreading through another organism. you cant mask the truth for long with pretty pictures and grand quotes. it is still the truth.
@fucksake, That is a freudian perspective which is definitely worth discussing. Especially as to culture/society has rules in place that prevents the fulfilment of this sexual drives which causes the ‘butthurt’.
Your argument about being just bacteria is intrinsically false and weak nihilistic. It is a type of false reductionism. If I slap you in the face – would you experience anger/fear/pain or would there be just some bacteria who don’t care?
Anyways – on to the topic. I sincerely doubt you were banned because of that post. The name of your account and previous account certainly indicates a different intent than just to enter discussions and make comments. Then again – I would like to know the rationale behind the mods action and will try to discover it.
@martijn, so you agree that our sole purpose is to exist + mindlessly spread. but you disagree we are more than bacteria. that is the definition of all bacteria and organic life.
If you slapped me in the face i would feel pain as i am programmed , like bacteria, to survive at all costs . All fear/anger/pain basically comes down to being programmed to live .
My name is my name , it had a nice ring to it, dont you think ?
@fucksake, No, the other way around. I disagree we have any purpose, which is too antropomorhphic for my taste. (Yes, I prefer taste to truth). And I would say we are much more than cells and bacteria.
While I agree there is a large vector of evolutionary psychology at play which offers the option in which we can act, it doesn’t necessarily determine which options we choose at any given moment. That said, I don’t think you can reduce pain to more than pain itself. Once you reduce it to something smaller, and in your case, you add a value judgment of insignificant to it, like bacteria, then you lose an essential component of pain – that which we actually feel and experience.
A = A. Tautology. Doesn’t mean anything. My point is, that if you don’t use your given name then the way you present yourself is a matter of choice, and in this case, idiotcunt is a confession of your intent. Yes, nice ring, but don’t be a crybaby if other disagree on that point.
