CHIP Wars.

chip-india appointed mods just a month or so ago and already they’ve stepped on people’s toes.

It all started with “‘maheshwar2006” ‘s post “Tribute to aXXo”. For those who don’t know who aXXo is, he’s a guy who rips DVDs and uploads them to torrents. This was apparantly considered piracy and the thread was locked. Pretty Wierd No?

So Mahe posts another thread “Tribute to aXXo 2” and “High handedness of Mods”. Surprise Surprise…”Tribute to aXXo 2″ Deleted.

Now everybody is mighty miffed and there are flames all over the place with “jithukrishna” demanding that the mod reply why he deleted or locked these topics and not some others.

The other mods start topics to cool people down. Some being “Settle Down People” by “Mr.Cool” and “Feedback for mods” by “anandk”.

When after some time, yours truly goes to reply he gets a screen saying “sorry can only blah blah blah …”. Now He posts a thread “ZOMG !!! somebody is on a delting roll” and Mahe posts “My answer”.

Well whatdya know, Deleted in minutes. Now We’ve got all night and a nice BB conn. so we just go on reposting.

Today some sense of normality has returned to the place. But there’s still a lot of flames left.

Watch this space.

    Arrogant beings these mods..
    Some often do stuffs like this to prove that they are actually working….
    This happens more so with newly apppointed mods… However , riping DVDs and making them available on torrents is illegal… so mods might well delete it without much ado…

    Chip wars..cheers..

    The post that started it “Tribute to aXXo” did not contain any links to torrents. It’s just that the mod thought that people would come to know which pirtae to choose and thus piracy would increase.

  12. vatsuak Says:

    yeah…cracking,piracy,flame-wars…these are the topics mods try to keep out of any ethical&respected tech-forum…

  13. neelakantankk Says:

    Its when they go overboard that the problem starts.

  14. Santosh Says:

    Actually, i respect what SHARPTOOTH did, I pity that he decided to leave.

    Anyways, I hardly have time to think of all these politics.

  15. neelakantankk Says:

    The locking was all right. He had every right to lock. and he did provide reasons.

    What was irksome was the flood of deletions that followed. 😦
