Maybe we should have a de facto "troll assassination squad" to deal with them pesky critters without having to fuck around with the rules. I vote Hamata K as squad leader and Girlyman as second-in-command. Big Grin

Erm, that quote wasn't something I said. You might wanna read that bit of the thread again.

Ah, my bad, it sure wasn't you. Blush

Anyway, where is this hostility you refer to?

It may or may not turn out like this. Big Grin





This is only eleven seconds, folks. Well worth diffusing any tension you might feel atm. Who knows, maybe the dog threw up, the kids aren't listening to you, you lost your bus pass... (I did Weeping )

Just know the vid takes less time to watch than to read at this very point.

RE: So, whose forum is this, anyway?
I'd say the ideal level of moderation is probably more than "anyone can say anything, forever".

All the poop does tend to warn people off.

But, free speech is still an ideal I think we'd agree to uphold so far as is practical. Practical being the source of disagreement.

RE: So, whose forum is this, anyway?
This is a very slippery slope BUT let's take simgiran's 3rd thread on pedophiles as an example. At what point, if there is one, does this become more harmful to the forum than banning and being accused of limiting free speech?

In my opinion we're there.

RE: So, whose forum is this, anyway?
Can I just say, I like that not everyone that comes here stays.
The forum is a good size as is, perhaps a little bigger would be better, but it's fine as is.

From the time I've been here the forum activity has stayed roughly the same the whole time.
Old members leave, or post less, new members join etc..

It is about quality not quantity after all.
