moderator last word power

this when forum moderator try and have the last word with people after banning them so they can't reply

Name Space:
Main
Page Type:
Trope
Occasionally as a result of out & out trolling or just being inconsiderate and/or stupid a forum user will break the rules of said forum and they rightly get banned or suspended. Now ideally a good moderator will send them a personal message explaining that their “entailed to believe whatever they want but that they can’t in good continence let them….blah blah blah and that that’s why they been banned” trying to keep the entire thing impersonal and impartial. A not so good and ethical moderator will reply in the offensive thread and take the opportunity have some kind of last word on issue in a situation where the user or in some cases no one (if the thread is locked) can contradict them, or too just insult the now blocked user well they can not defend them self

Good moderator: "I'm sorry, but if you're going to be like this I can't let you stay on this site"

Bad moderator: "Havant you learned your ******* lesson yet you retard toddler? Of-course “insert show name here” isn’t communist propaganda"

    I'm really worried this will back fire and I'll get accused of just turning moderators into ass holes in my head to avoid blaming my self for getting banned from stuff

    Not a trope. Real Life.

    @polarbear2217 I know but there are pages on this site that are not tropes, I assumed they where created the same way

    There shouldn't be any pages that are not tropes, unless they're works pages or pages dealing with the wiki itself. So, sorry, but I don't think this belongs on this wiki.

    Actually, New Media Tropes is one of our oldest branching-outs from TV... which is another thing that makes me wonder about the way the definition of "trope" has been pinned down in recent years. We have Wiki Tropes, Blog Tropes, Online Personas, there's a list of tropes on Fora...

    However, I'm really concerned that this is going to turn into a magnet for exporting drama from other sites, which we really don't need.

    Of course, we can always limit examples to fictional ones.

    I really doubt there are going to be enough fictional examples to fill out the trope.

    Not a trope, nor anything we'd need.

    This is exactly as much a trope as "that guy in the office who eats all the bagels." If it happens in many stories, yes, it's a trope. If it only happens it real life? Not a trope.

    Tropes sometimes have real life sections in addition to all the examples of them appearing in fictional works, but this only applies to real life, and seems to me like it's just someone with a personal bitterness towards moderators looking for a way to preach against them, rather than wanting to expand this website and make it more efficient and accurate (the only reason a YKTTW should ever be made).

    @Nithael

    you sound like a Yorkshire villager reacting to the suggestion of building a Tesco express

    @Routerie

    then why do pages like this http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OrwellianEditor exist? I don't understand this site at all I suspect

    @Dapz

    OK firstly you want to actually address me directly well you accuse me of stuff? Secondly I did acknowledge and praise the existence of good moderators. You know at the risk of ranting one of the things I dislike about internet culture is that in real life if you claim to have been say..... victimised by an authority figure people will believe you. Where as if you say the same thing about an on-line authority figure like say a forum moderator people will accuse you of just having "a personal bitterness towards moderators" because every body on-line has a "we're all buddies here" attitude that people lack in real life and are as a result more open to outsiders and more suspicious of their leaders because of

    YOU KNOW WHAT FORGET THIS YKTTW, I KNEW IT'D CAUSE TROUBLE FOR ME AND IT'S SO NOT WORTH THE RISK
