In all seriousness, I realize why members do this stuff. They become comfortable here, and they just forget. I am nothing so special to think that people walk around with my unwritten rules in their head. If they remember, they comply, so these are honest mistakes.

I liked showing my wife that thread especially the ability to have the patience to stab something 1,000 times and that she is a tad sick of politics right now.







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

Me too. Maybe with Para acknowledging that folks make honest mistakes despite his having made his desires clear, that the offensive post(s) can be pruned and the thread reopened. Here's hoping. Smile

Me as well. My family thought I had suddenly become proficient at finding funny stuff on the internet. Now my primary source has dried up. I'd better download all the tree porn before the thread prunes. Smile

Definitely sucks and hopefully it'll be reopened...again. Definitely loved that thread, but hopefully this miff up isn't met with email threats and other crap like last time. He's already here apologizing. Maybe if it's reopened, we can add something like, "absolutely no politics" to the title... Something for those who don't follow an entire thread, or check back far enough.

Negatve to that, the thread was locked after ChicagoSigMan posted two political pictures.

I'm not sure what the timeline was. I think (could be wrong) that one member posted something with political content, he apologized, and then darned if another member didn't come along and post more political stuff.

As The Monkey said in a different context -- Oy!

V-Tail - your time line is correct - you caught my idiocy, I deleted. I’ve mea culpa-ed. ChicagoSigMan needs to delete and own up. At which point, we might beg foregiveness, and ask our hosts to re-open the thread of amusement.

Crazy thought...

But since the past few times this has happened it was by guys who were not regular contributors to the thread and could not possibly have known they were making a bad post...

...perhaps the OP could change/tweak the thread title to state "No Politics! By order of Para"

Issue solved.

Great minds think alike. I had a similar thought. The originator of the thread could edit the title, or better yet, one of the staff folks, who I believe have the ability to make the title BOLD -- something we ordinary folks can not do. That might or might not work, but we have already seen that an ordinary post within the thread, informing members that political posts will not be tolerated, just gets overlooked.

I'm convinced that the people who commit the infractions are not knowingly defying Parabezllum's directive, but unfortunately they just don't seem to take the time to read through the thread before posting.

Yup, like I said, title might be the only way to head things off for those who don't read the entire thread or back a few pages.

Wouldn't be a bad idea, cuz admittedly I laughed at Chicagos memes.

I don't think he can delete once the thread has been locked.

Apparently not.

Meanwhile: What is the rule about starting a new thread with the same subject, purpose or point of a thread that's been locked by the boss? And what is the inevitable result? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Congrats. FIVE maroons manage to jack this up again. Not newbs, but frequent posters with combined 45 years on the board.

Idiots. How hard is it to figure out? One has been part of at least two prior locks, and is apparently determined to keep being a frackin' PITA for mods and the folks who get a chuckle there.
