Admins Abusing other members

Alright guys, in this thread I'd like to discuss particular instances where admins have abused the power given to them.

This thread isn't attacking any admins but I think I'd be great to have this thread as a "watchdog". Let's keep this thread civil, because its a touchy subject. For no reason, should this thread be deleted because we as XIXAX users are merely pointing out abuses of power and I think this thread could help out other Admins.

Anyways I'll start this off, by giving a recent example of an admin abusing power.

During the Michael Moore thread, cBRAD changed my signature to...
"I ENJOY DRINKING PISS" "A cBRAD production"

Now after I saw this, I immediately noted this, but it seemed like the other admins turned there heads to this type of behaviour.

My question for the other admins is,

What do you think of the behaviour that cBRAD showed in this particular instance? And was it right?

I don't think this is very professional and I think its hard for admins to issue power and create resolves when you don't "practice what you preach".

Also, feel free for other members to point out other instances if they exist.

For absolutely no reason should this thread be closed, because its just pointing out facts, nothing is made up here.

Let's be mature about this.

Your signature was an insult to an admin to begin with.  You didn't talk about that part, and it has nothing to do with what thread it was brought up in.  The admins are too nice sometimes, I think.

I will talk about that part if you like.

My original signature was...

Don't judge someone by their post count. Just look at P.

You can read the reaction, and the drama that P created after these two simple sentences in the Michael Moore thread.

I really didn't think P would become enraged with anger over that signature, because quite frankly, It's not bad. I'm sorry P, if you I upset you with those terrible remarks. I am truly sorry.

And no, this thread nor does the instance of where cBRAD changed my signature to.. "I enjoy drinking piss" have anything to do with my original signature. This thread is about admins abusing their power.

Maybe not that one, but the four others you posted after might have had something to do with it.

At times, some of my fellow admins (and myself) can get a little hotheaded and make snap judgments. We're human.

I think what cbrad did was wrong. But just because you don't see it, doesn't mean actions aren't taken. It was dealt with two weeks ago.

That's a lie. He had complained about it, and you did nothing. I'm you're "sorry," remove it.


Mr. Blackman, I am TRULY sorry to P. As you can see, I removed my original signature.

Anyways Blackman, lets try to stay on topic.

Blackman, do you know of any instances where Admins have abused power?

no you don't.


ok, you're right. you do.


cowgoesmoo, i guess i'm biased cuz i'm an admin and all, but by using "post count doesn't matter, look at p" as your sig, you're giving a very clear message. p complained and said to you, outright, hey, b/c of that sig, i really do not like you. we are not friends in the slightest bit. so you took the sig down. now you have a mutual understanding that you're not friends and you in fact really do not like each other. so what do you do? you put a quote from P acting humorous to somebody else on the board in a slightly threatening way and then start this thread. just seems like you're trying to start shit just because. then you yell at the admins when we say, "hey. why are you picking on us?" you say to us, "no defending yourselves! this thread is to show the facts! everybody, tell about how you hate admins!" well, if you don't like us, leave. nobody's asking you to stay.

I've never said I hated the admins... And I've never said I didn't like anybody.. In fact, I've never said I disliked P, check out the threads.

Let's keep this on topic.
