once they got that nude thats where the real shit starts. Then you are in their pocket in their eyes. They will ask or make you do/say all kinds of shit and if you dont want to he/she threathens to release the nude. Pretty standard abuse of power / blackmail indeed.
I dont directly respond to guests, stop being a pussy and sign up or piss off.

Abuse of power is typical for those kinds of forums tbh. Honestly, it'd be typical of this forum too if poonoo weren't so careful about who gets mod status. DHI 1.0 had problems like that iirc.

Monty loved overregulation. The worst thing about 1.0 was having a thread for every minor happening and not for the nobodies themselves. We already have too many threads talking about the CA doc at once.

Volunteer forum moderators are kind of like cops or politicians. Power entails responsibility, so most of the people who are willing to take on the responsibility of the position do so because they derive personal satisfaction from the associated power. So the job heavily self-selects for the exact people you don't want doing it.

The problem comes from the fact that a moderator's actions are associated with their main account, which they also use in ordinary discussions when not acting in capacity as a mod. So users of a forum have a vested interest in treating moderators with more respect or deference they would show non-moderators in order to gain privileges or avoid punishments. If the moderator in question actively and regularly participates in the forum (and if they care enough to be a mod, they probably do) it can result in a miniature cult of personality springing up around them.

I can't stand that kind of phony ass-kissing bullshit so I don't really post on message boards anymore because of it.

I'll probably merge those threads once the storm has passed. For now, my attitude is people on a shitposting forum should be free to shitpost in threads that may be redundant.

If enough people complain that they can't find the "right" thread to talk about the CA #changethechanneltobitchycunts happening, I might merge them sooner.

Good observation. I'll grant you special privileges for that post. Upboat!

I didn't know Null needed to see penises that much.
I don't think it was about that so much as it was exerting power over another human being that motivated him. I don't want to get too autistic about psychoanalyzing the guy because I don't really know him, but I got the impression that he has very little autonomy in "real life" and running a forum dedicated to harassing retards on the internet is his way of compensating for that.
I haven't really bothered to keep up with Kiwicuck lore but AFAIK Null has daddy issues and claims that he can't hold a job due to doxxing himself eons ago. Doesn't help that he has constant schizo breakdowns on his own forum all the time :lol:

Null tried to blackmail me for nudes shortly after his takeover.
What in God's name did he try to blackmail you with?

Being allowed to continue posting on the forum. I guess extortion might be a better term than blackmail.
