It's not allowed, unless you are 1) making fun of a number of other posters instead of just one specific poster, OR 2) you have posted in the thread about something else already.

Edit: Also, if the thing you're making fun of them for happened more than a year ago, the punishment is a ban.

Always check the postcount. If they have a negative postcount you can say whatever vile poo poo you want about them, sometimes with staff encouragement.

there are a lot of incredibly stupid and petty moderators on this site who take mild and 100% accurate criticisms of their online friends more seriously they do death threats, advising others to commit murder, etc. not going to direct this to anyone in particular, per the rules of this forum

If you are going to arbitrarily decide that you arenít tolerating making fun of a hypothetical other users for hypothetically extremely embarrassing past and hypothetically pathetic behavior, then the appropriate action is to warn people about that or probe them, not to just ban them without warning after already probing them twice.

making fun of users? I got one:

Hi mods, please ban me you bootlicking thugs!

I love CSPAM and because of that I'm doing my best to save it from the completely lovely junkyard that it sprang from before the literal child-brained owner flushes either the community here, or the entire website down the toilet

the events that occurred on the night of the stream with the "livebans" were really beyond the pale and basically killed any appetite I had to post here or spend money here, at the behest of a nazi chud peanut gallery, a man in his 40's banned some of my favorite people from their favorite place and seriously upset them, if you can countenance that poo poo, be my guest

i've been workin' hard (thank you!) to capture as many disaffected, displaced and banned posters as I can, and have literally hundreds trickling into the new hotness.

so come check us out!

if you register with your SA account name, I can track you down and approve you (we're doing manual approvals for now) and you can come check out the new joint, which despite being a work in progress is already REALLY loving solid.

if you can't be bothered, or if all of this is "dumb online bullshit" or you don't care, then I bid you good posting friend, it was nice making content with you!

That banme deserves to get made fun of; in fact, i think it should be a yearly tradition here. As newly appointed admin, I hear by deem this an acceptable "hELLdUmP" and should be pinned on SA's fridge of shame.

I feel really unsafe now. Yikesaroo. I'm glad those guys got punished but it's really disheartening to see how doxxing and stalxxing are tolerated around here. But I guess we can't have nice things. Sigh...

So you've never posted in this thread before, you're targeting a single poster, and you're making fun of them for something that happened a year ago. Enjoy your ban.

I think the main reason this looks so bad is smarxist was posting about posters and received no punishment. Itís ok if you do it this way but not THAT way!

Forums can become insular, and mods/iks miss or overlook the things they've become accustomed to. Being made fun of by a separate group is sometimes the only way someone threatening murderous intent towards others can be brought to light, as an example.

It should be considered a service, but left to those who are good at it.

EasilyConfused's secret method for an enjoyable forums experience Trolls hate him!

1. Try not to post dumb poo poo
2. When you do post dumb poo poo, don't be offended when someone calls you on it
3. If you ever get upset about somebody making fun of you, realize that you are talking the forums too seriously

If you post sufficiently embarrassing poo poo you become immune to probation, like in that thread that got closed and then twelve hours later a dumbass piece of poo poo mod went through and probated basically everyone except the op and smarxist, just as a recent example, totally unrelated

My extremely helpful answer is that it depends.

My other extremely helpful answer is that if you go into a forum you are subject to the whims of that forum's moderation team. Sometimes that means being chain-probated, sometimes that means being banned, and sometimes that means having other people point and laugh right alongside you.

would like to bring it to people's attention out that years ago fyad moderator Jack Daniels drank some beers and ate a sandwich which caused his farts to be extremely stinky, as evidenced by his post:

Jack Daniels posted:

ololll huge extra lagrge Philly Cheese Steak + double meat & cheesae PLUS Bacon .....gulped down w/ some IPA beers. yeah the farts *JUST* started rollling in but they literellya smell like wierd stinky cheese poop lol

i don't have the link but there were also other farts from around that time that had such an iconic stench that his children gave a name to them ("Fresh Eggs")

I make these claims fully understanding that I may get banned for them, under the "no making fun of things from over a year ago" clause, which is enforced evenly and without bias by the moderation team

Are you saying that the FYAD mods are allowed to ban anyone who posts in FYAD for any reason, or is there still a threshold that must be passed before a ban is justified?

what prob happened is they just got tired of seeing reports from the same crew over and over, and this it is extremely funny because bloom is 100% not the guy whose posted the smarxist post the most lol. might have even been his first time & he got left holding the bag.

all moderator actions are the same thing and completely equivocal therefore a justified chain probe here is the same as a thin skinned vendetta ban over there. I am very smart

I'm still reading the cspam thread for full context, so I'll speak in general since clearly this thread is totally not about that.

Had someone brought up something they previously did in an unrelated conversation to own them I would probe them.

Though, had the OP getting owned been basically baiting people to do it, then I would probe them and ask that people stop giving them attention after the first "round" of owning.
