i still kinda like the idea of a subforum moderated by taintrunner and SHM where the premise is a combat zone between people who voted for biden and who abstained or voted hawkins/la riva/HRC etc. i just worry it would devolve into a helldump situation

e: i mean a subforum of cspam of course, where trunner and shm are iks

There used to be a subforum of LF called Thunderdome that was for settling grudges between posters. I think they had to do mod challenges?

This does not seem to be a reason to gas threads, as there is no "multiple threads cannot be made about similar topic" rule, so I assume it was yet another unfortunate mistake

"I am not Josh Hawley, literally not Josh Hawley" - some other Josh Hawley irl, but not that one.

Crusty Nutsack posted:

all right speaking as the main person who posts content in the succ zone i should probably make it clear why i tend to post there instead of other threads in the first place i do post in other threads as appropriate but by and large the tweets i want to share with my posting pals tend to be succ zone tweets heres an example

https://twitter.com/kenvogel/status/1358817580979539968

this tweet is succ zone topical because the figure in question vivek murthy is technically nonpartisan despite the dems fetish for competent adults he was running the show during the ebola epidemic hosed it up and ever since last year weve been gaslighted into thinking obamas ebola response was cool and good actually and now we find out hes been taking bribes from health insurance companies but in a positive way which has been a recurring trend for biden nominees

now where can i post this except the succ zone? democrats thread? not really because hes not an elected figure. biden thread? hes more an obama guy than a biden guy and biden probably thinks hes some immigrant who works at the convenience store. did you get that joke? because biden is senile and because succ zone regulars have all seen the gross racist footage where biden talks about how youre not allowed to own a convenience store unless youre an indian. even if you did get it thats very much a succ zone culture joke that would probably be misunderstood in either of the other two threads i just mentioned

and yes two threads im looking at the front page of cspam and im already out of other threads where a tweet about bidens surgeon general pick taking bribes would feel even slightly on topic if theres no succ zone thread theres honestly not much reason for me to hang out in cspam at all and maybe thats your goal for all i know this succ zone drama is just an excuse to get rid of me but if youre actually sincere about closing it down due to dorechat or d and d relitigation it would make a hell of a lot more sense to go after the minority of posters doing that stuff instead of the majority of us who use the thread to discuss weird democrat adjacent news stories that arent easily classified under the subject line of more straightforward thread topics

Please explain, exactly, what the problem is with us having a thread instead of silently gassing any attempt to open discussion and then condescending to us for daring to ask anything of our betters

Is it breaking a rule? No, so mods shouldn't be involved
Are you being forced to by admins? Well the Head Admin approved it so no again, that's not an excuse

which leaves us with option 3: "I don't want to"

None of the posted threads seemed to be doing this before you gassed them though? So we're right back to "you're full of poo poo"

Nice to know that the reason the original closed is example #351 of you guys prioritizing the whining of other mods over your own users though

While that rule is loving stupid because literally no other forum has a rule like that and it's just to arbitrarily punish a single thread for daring to speak ill of their betters, none of the new threads broke it so even by those stupid standards the gassing was entirely unjustified

ok

step 1: we get a shitload of complaints about (and from within!) one particular thread all the time
step 2: we go in to talk to you about it
step 3: you yell about nazi mods
step 4: we probate people who are making wildly hosed up posts
step 5: you yell about nazi mods
step 6: repeat this for months
step 7: gas the thread because the frequency at which this happens has come to everyone's attention

i don't know which part you think is ridiculous here
