    Ramshutu, a now officially 'orange crown on profile' moderator, continually chooses images to trigger me and only me. He has explicitly admitted to doing it on 7 different occasions. His current image is meant to depict me as a retard who thinks he is a genius. I would like to know how this is acceptable, professional mod behaviour.

    If I choose rats, he chooses a cartoon character who has massacred rats in an 18+ cartoon. If I choose Q from Star Trek, he will choose the letter R just to be 'one better' than me. It is so pathetic that he actually said that by choosing a dollar when I had the rapper 50 Cent as my profile pic, it made it clear that he's 'twice the man that' I am and people thought I was the egomaniac for saying I'm an alpha wolf in the same thread! LOL!

    At any given opportunity he will prey on me verbally too, as will Ragnar.

    There is a reason why this is being ignored.

    I was about to write a loooong post about you and your beliefset again, but yeah I stopped that.
    But anyway, ...

    Why would you let it bother you? You're closer to the opposite than you are to a retard who thinks he's a genius.

    Just because he's making a statement not direct enough for you to directly get back at doesn't necessarily mean you have to directly respond to him.
    Directly responding to him only makes you look stupid by showing you can't think of a way to indirectly respond back. And if you can't, he's not doing anything real damage anyway, otherwise you could. You could think of a way to respond indirectly and playfully if he was actually doing some sort of damage to you, but he isn't.

    That is not a solution to the problem, it is succumbing to bullying.

    This is an absolute travesty. How on earth could it continue? Your suffering... it must be beyond human imagining. I pray that you, young RM, can muster the strength to go on, to log on each day and type up your exquisite forum posts.

    no. Big dick energy is taking your enemy on and having a pic and persona they ridicule and 'counter' no matter what. Small dick energy is cowering around them, picking an image and persona they don't pick on.

    The genius avatar was actually a self depricating reference to myself (I do that a lot) : I wanted to change my avatar to reflect myself - and precipitated by a stupid incident last night: as I describe myself as either a dumb smart person or smart dumb person and cut my internet teeth on rage comics, this was my choice. I am pretty open about what is and isn’t related to you.

    Even though it wasn’t directed at you; I have however changed it for your benefit.

    Saying that, a major omission you make in your assumption here, is that of context. 

    The context here is not you going about your business only to have me constantly copy your profile picture while you stand back from afar. The Context is that for the last 6-8ish months you’ve been engaged in a fairly relentless campaign of unceasing personal attacks and accusations. For the first couple of months, if you recall, I countered the factual accuracy of your claims, challenged you to debates and asked you to stop. 

    As you’ve continued fairly unabated since then - I now mostly just use various forms of humour to mock the validity of these outrageous and unfounded claims - I can’t do much more. I most often do this by “playing into” the accusations, insinuations and tropes you use : You’ve called me manipulative; so I’ve changed my avatar to Machiavelli, you’ve called me evil - so I chose emperor palpatine, you’ve accused me of thinking I’m better than you; so I ended up changing my avatar to a dollar coin (as a tacit reference to your picture of 50cent) - which imo is objectively hilarious any way you think about it. 

    All the avatar changes are intended to play into this repeated and consistent narrative you espouse in the form of an accusatory tropes of me thinking I’m better than you, or that I am an enemy out to get you. That’s what these profile pictures are targeting. None are explicitly or objectively demeaning, none are derogatory or abusive. They are a trivial, non-abusive, indirect commentary on your accusations - and I have made that expressly clear to you in the past that their intent is intended as satire for these accusations.

    Consider, however, that over the last 8 months you’ve repeatedly accused me of bullying, harassment, accused me of engaging in off-site anti-semitism, death threats, and verbally abusing you off the site; accusing me of being someone else, threatened to doxx me, and share my personal information with others, despite repeated pleas to stop on all counts, and generally been out to get you - this pattern of abuse has been over PMs, debate comments, forum comments, call-out threads - even in votes, and debate rounds; extending to other websites - you also wrote 3 raps about it. 

    While I’m generally fine with this abuse: I find it particularly obtuse and wholly disingenuous that you now consider something as egregious as selecting an R as a profile picture when you had Q from start trek, and choosing a dollar coin when you had 50 cent as reference to your attacks and portrayal to be harassment.

    Saying that I will be considering the nature of how I engage in humour when faced with such unfounded accusations going forward due to increased responsibility as part of the mod team, and in light of what happened with Bsh (in part this is why I modified the avatar) - it’s probably not as appropriate for such light hearted mockery of accusations - but up to this point as a vote moderator with no forum power, I do not feel that using general low level satire - including using profile pictures - to lampoon these regular personal attacks constitutes anything particularly unethical or inappropriate especially considering the nature of the attacks they are directed at.

    Usually a bully or harasser doesn't realise how the victim is really taking it, they just get off on the shits and giggles and power. This is no different.
