Is there any way on chess.com to find out which admin has been banning members?

I have this club, and there is an admin who has been banning members (members reduced from 140-9). I can't find which admin who has been doing it, and I cant falsely accuse someone. Can anybody help? 

Btw the club link is here: https://www.chess.com/club/busy-chess-players 

If you is a SA in the club you can just see it in "Club audits log"

Notice that I created this forum more than a year ago. Much  before Club audits existed.

Thanks for blocking me ( which got your forum locked ) 

No I got my forum locked because only the banned person can appeal

No you got your forum locked because you are D U and M B 

@CRYYSIS Those sort of personal insults are not acceptable here on Chess.com. Don't do it any more, or stronger sanctions will be applied.

@David , I am going repeat again , you can mute me after this but calling someone dumb as a friend or in a joking way isn't called a insult or personal attack

Just because I didn't called her opinion dumb doesn't mean that I am insulting her

You even took my name in a thread before locking it , but the thing is I wasn't even there in that thread , I never commented there in the first place

You said the ↓

"

Personal attacks are definitely not ok.

@CRYYSIS and @TheBestBeer_Root, I don't know what's going on with you two, but leave it alone - no more posts or notes about each other or to each other. Just stop."

i was never in that thread , so no idea who you're talking to

https://www.chess.com/forum/view/off-topic/is-love-about-sex?page=11#comment-48882812 @David there are members who taunt and harassed me so many times but i don't know why staff didn't take action against them. This word "dumb" is enough to insult someone but people are using this word on this site and staff is not taking action. Read or bump any thread is someone's own choice but there are members who felt problem if i choose any topic to discuss and they wanted to make fun of me.

Yikes, using an engine during games is so wrong. In the end those people are only cheating themselves.

And the problem with "treating everyone equal" and #AllLivesMatter is that's fine when everyone is in fact being treated equally, but when a group of people has historically and - more importantly, is still presently being treated horribly unequally, it's actually undermining any action aimed at reducing that inequality. It's actually the same sort of thinking that attacks women's titles and prizemoney in chess as discriminatory against men, instead of recognising it as an attempt to improve women's participation in a game that they have been historically discouraged from playing.

If people have any concerns about a specific instance of moderation or with a particular moderator, the correct course of action is to raise it with Chess.com - contact Support via https://support.chess.com/article/346-contact-us or even the staff members leading the moderation team, @jdcannon or @shaun. It is not to complain about it repeatedly in the forums, and attaching additional insults like "whining snowflake" is not acceptable either.

David,

Let me first say that i pretty much agree with your post.  What I do not agree with is the bending over backwards for the black cause.  Besides overreacting to what is going on now.  When as the last time chess.com interviewed black chess players, and their experiences with racism? 

Suddenly businesses think they need to flood sites with black movies, black comedies, black history, black documentaries.  You know how much this addresses racism?  It doesn't.  Its pandering, plain and simple.  If you weren't worried about interviewing black chess players before about racism, then why do it now?  All this fosters is reverse racism.  Now we have to play the black national anthem at sporting events?  Now kneeling is acceptable?  And their is talk of a black bill of rights???
So why dont we play an Asian national anthem? After all we worked the Chinese to death building our railroads.   Why not the Mexican national anthem?   American Indian national anthem?  We killed an awful lot of them taking their land. 

Again...all this over reacting is reverse racism.  If you didn't care enough before, then you dont care now.  Its a bunch of hypocrisy. 

Well said.

Meh. Mostly what I got out of it was that peacefully protesting police brutality (by simply kneeling) is reverse racism, but civil disobedience when conservatives show up to government offices in para-military gear because they're mad buffets are closed is righteous.

It's a double standard by people with a very narrow view of the world, and likely little self esteem and empathy.

By the way "it's racist against white people" is exactly what was argued when they wanted to e.g. let black kids go to school. Conservatives have always resisted change, which is useful when the change is too much, but sometimes they need to be quiet and let humanity take a few steps forward.

It's a great American tradition to peacefully protest. Can you explain to me why kneeling is bad?

I see your point about interviewing black chess players, but can you explain to me how interviewing black chess players is reverse racism? (It's not a zero sum game. You can interview both white and black players.)

I think a lot of companies, particularly in silicon valley, are pressured by some far left insanity. However I don't think black lives matter fits into that category. In fact I heard one guy saying if you go to their website you'll find they promote Marxist ideology. So I went there looking for it, because I don't want to say I support BLM if there is some crazy stuff associated with it, but I couldn't find anything like that. So for that too, if you can point that out to me I'd appreciate it (not being sarcastic).

 

I would have doubted your sincerity after you made a point of being a news junky that does your own research, yet haven't done a 5 minute Google search or been in any online communal space (probably a distinction to be made between 'communal space' where people of different views gather, and 'safe space') in the last few months such as Youtube, Yahoo, etc. You get such information just looking up football results now. And that's just the internet, even my grandmother knew George Floyd's criminal  record the week that happened - contrary to sainthood for example. But i'll humour it.

From The Telegraph (British) print newspaper:
"BLM happily self-identifies as a neo-marxist movement with various far-left objectives including defunding the police, dismantling capitalism, dismantling patriarchy, disrupting the nuclear family structure, and seeking reperations to redistribute wealth".

The co-founder of black lives matter Patrisse Cullors describes herself as Marxist, the group's ideological framework as such, and is a protégé of Eric Mann. Quote:  "the first thing is that we have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organisers. We are trained Marxists". Patrisse Cullors in an interview with Jared Ball for The Real News Network.

Eric Mann was formerly of the Weather Underground communist terrorist group which aimed to overthrow the American government in order to quote "form a classless  communist world". They were designated as a terrorist group by the FBI.

Not sure about America, but their UK go fund me page proclaims the goal of "dismantling capitalism". Their UK Twitter feed from June 28 apparently has a lot of anti-semitic material in support of the sacked Rebecca Long-Bailey (who almost became our version of the left's party leader here), which caused the current leader of  England's left party (Labour) to distance himself from the group - describing their policies as "nonsense" on TV.

They also seem to have this very big thing for Venezuela. Because why be America, when you can be Venezuela? Not like the people there are starving or anything.

My opinion is that they are quite ridiculous, and are essentially relegated to being yet another lobbyist group here (given that this 'movement' is the complete opposite of what they need to do to gain any actual power - as is fairly well explained in a report made by the Fabian Society). But the United States is questionable.

I never said I was a news junky, and it's rather distasteful to bring up a murdered man's criminal record. At least in the US we have a criminal justice system. People aren't supposed to be murdered in the streets by policemen. We have courts and laws. Maybe you could make use of your yahoo and youtube skills to figure that one out.

Here's black lives matter.com literally in the "what we believe" section (link below). I see you demonized some founders, and that's fine, but go ahead and show me where it says they want to burn society to the ground.

I gave you a bunch of information from over a half dozen sources, which is what you asked for. If you were sincere, you'd be searching that up.

Again true- why does his criminal record come into that?

Would he be saying that if GF was a relative or a friend- nah don't think so

llama

@hdbb8
That's true, I might do that tomorrow. Honestly it'd take a few hours at least and I'm not going to do that right now.

I do see some wealth redistribution stuff, so I disagree with that, and disrupting the nuclear family to live in "villages" where we care for each other... which is... very vague and strange, so I'm pretty sure I don't support that.

But I could do without the flamboyant demonizing, Floyd had a criminal record, and their co-founder is a Marxist. Leaving stuff like that out will help people take you more seriously.

That's like saying the entire military sucks because a few Navy Seals are out of control. My Yahoo news feed says the T.V show "Boy Meets World" will be re-done this fall with a black family. Not sure if that's catering to racism or not. 

Yeah, I wouldn't dismiss the whole thing, but it would prevent me from answering flatly with "yes" if asked whether I support BLM. I'd say something like I think institutional racism has existed, and still exists, and that it has disadvantaged black people in the United States, and that I support equal treatment of everyone.
