I'm really sad to see it go. Everyone was doing so well with it - no discussions, comments, etc. It was a thread I looked forward to viewing every single day. And, quite often, I would save one of the files and send them to friends and family.

Just goes to show once again: It only takes one person to screw things up for the rest. And, if the offender had just shown the right attitude - namely contrition for making a mistake - it might not have ended with the locking of the thread.



I found what you said riveting.

Remember guys, you can't cure stupid. One dick-weed "trys da man", guess what -- da man wins.

Para, any chance you would reconsider closing the thread? Been watching it for yours. I realize you have been super tolerant with jackwagons that don’t follow the rules over the years but, this is the only place I get my daily dose of news, commentary and comedy. I don’t have Facebook or twitter and all those other social media’s. I think others would agree we will miss the truly funny meme’s that get posted in that thread.

I plead with you, have mercy on the rest of us!

Locking the thread actually gives the win to the one guy who no doubt doesn't give a crap.

Oh, horse shit. "If you (yaddayadda), the terrorists win." That shit is two decades old and it's as wrong now as it was when people starting spewing it.

How long have you been here? Do you think an approach such as the one you took in this thread ever is effective upon me?

If you want to convince me to open the thread, don't insult my intelligence.

It really is to bad it had to be closed, but Kraquin was way out of line behaving towards the owner like that.

But I suspect, with as popular as that thread was that if they decide to come back after moderated status there will be a lot of GTFO going on when they try to participate in other members threads.

RIP dummie.

Para,

Whether or not you unlock this thread, there are plenty of triggers that will cause you to lock us out. Politics in the non-political meme thread being one, comments on physical appearance another, and then the one that got my most recent discussion locked, using the "phrase that shall not be uttered" when describing Islam. I still cannot believe folks have not got that one figured out yet.

Most (the majority) of us appreciate your inviting us into your Forum each day so that we may meet up and discuss, solve, joke or maybe just vent a bit. We know the rules and do our best to abide by them and enforce them with newer or less-regular members as we can...but we are limited in our options. At best, we can 'post' within a thread and hope the member sees and changes it before you do.

How would you prefer obvious transgressions like this handled by membership in the future?

Would it be appropriate to use the 'report post' feature so that you can know that we are trying to fix something someone posted, and you can then also step in and deal with the offending poster as you see fit?

Thank you, Para.

John

Those who have never stepped over a line someplace in your life, raise your hand.

Hmmm . . . I don't see that many hands. Wink

I have made "bad posts" here, more than once. Mr. Bellum (that's the formal way to address para) has whacked me with his ruler, more than once. I have had enough sense to refrain from arguing with him. I acknowledged, apologized, and we all moved on.

Once, it was not clear to me why my post was not good, so I asked. Not to argue the case, but to understand, so that I would not transgress the same way again (I can always find a new and different way to screw up. Wink) I received an explanation, I understood, and I did not do that thing again, nor did I argue about it.

What kind of moron would do that?



Another plea to open the locked political meme thread Sir

Aside of the Lol thread in my sig, I don’t think I have ever seen Para that pissed off.
I’m dying to know, what the hell did that guy post? (No need to share the meme, just a description, if that’s acceptable to ask?)
