Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Wed Jul 24, 2013, 01:39 PM

Say hello to our new MIR Team!

This discussion thread was locked by EarlG (a host of the Announcements group).

The job of the Malicious Intruder Removal Team is to ban people who join DU with the intent to disrupt. MIR Team members are volunteers, and they serve for a three-month term. The members serving on the current team were selected on a first-come-first-served basis. (Note that we do not select anyone whose Transparency page is displayed.)

If you are a member of the MIR Team, you should have access to the access-restricted Malicious Intruder Removal Forum. It should appear as a red folder on your Forums & Groups page, and in the left column of any page (if you view DU in "Standard" mode).

Thank you to everyone who volunteered!

The MIR Team, July-October 2013

2. Welcome to new MIRT and thankyou to retirees. New MIRTers, please make sure you check out

these 2 threads in the MIRT forum. There may be others with more updated info, but these have a lot of good stuff that will help make your job easier.

Thanks for volunteering and helping make DU suck less.

You do a good job with my bestest buddy.

13. Well, that is good. I've caught a few and hoped he didn't change.

The writing style hasn't changed, as far as I can tell. Probably true for most of us.

Is he still going after Skinner? Am I still being murdered?

28. It's addicting.

I'm so glad that most DUers never see what MIRT sees.
The sign-up names are something else.
I used to send everything to Rhiannon12866. She was an excellent MIRTer.
There are a few MIRT members I still know. Mostly returnees.
A few of the newbies, I'll send PMs to also.

31. I'll be volunteering again for the fall and/or winter MIRT positions.

I always have lots of time to be here at DU when it's cold outside.

You seem to be awake when I am, so dropping a PM on you makes lots of sense.
You'll be hearing from me.

33. First time I ever volunteered for anything here and I didn't get picked.

I'm going to throw my keyboard in the toilet and pout for six weeks.

Goodbye, cruel world.
