yinlock do you engage in any political or organizing activity that isnt post-based, or do you just post relentlessly about how the mods are stopping you from posting the posts that will usher in an age of utopian communism
posting is a revolutionary act and will usher in the vanguard of the revolution

When did I ever say my posts were going to usher in communism or whatever the gently caress you're saying here, what even is this?

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

ok let me translate that

step 1: mods from other forums whine at you and their bootlickers report-flood you, which you take more seriously than your own users
step 2: you go in to yell at us about it after the problem has already died down, thus sparking it again
step 3: you get laughed at for being dipshits
step 4: you probate some hosed up posts but explicitly refuse to probe any liberals trolling the poo poo out of the thread
step 5: you get yelled at for being dipshits
step 6: repeat this for months
step 7: it gets revealed that the mods from other forums are being shittier than even you imagined, you choose to double-down to protect them rather than the users of the forum you moderate because being a member of the cool cops club is more important to you than actually supporting a community
step 8: close the zone with the most obvious lie ever, get called out on the lie, get mad about this
step 9: silently chain-gas any new threads for no reason

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

thinking the succ zone is just about hating democrats is very much misunderstanding what the succ zone is about succ is a cultural movement of terrible people so heavily addicted to their own farts they not only dont have principles they dont even understand what principles are

biden was a creation of the succ with the succ itself existing long before he declared his candidacy its a concept that goes far beyond the democratic party as we properly understand it having also permeated much of the media and countless sad twitter randos and celebrities

saying the succ is the same basic thing as biden and the democratic party is like saying populism is the same basic thing as trump and the republican party youre distorting the definitions so badly that misunderstanding the actual root causes is virtually inevitable

Yeah I guess it's that appearance of a double standard that gets me.

'fyad can do helldumping/kys/mock threads because it's not against the rules of fyad. Case closed.'

If that's all it takes, take the rule about not talking about d&d out of the cspam rules. Then my plan works flawlessly.

I'm sorry I still can't get over how pathetic this is. You went and made nice little edited screenshots to try and own people wanting their one thread back saying there's already too many of them when the complaint is that it sucks that one thread got split into 40 differnet ones.

If the issue is there's too many similar threads you're the idiots who made them!

GET LOSE, YOU CAN'T COMPARE WITH MY POWERS


Hi,

I cannot have a thread that is doing live commentary on dnd posts and posters. That is not exclusive to c-spam - the yospos games thread doesn't talk about the worst posters in the games forum, soccer forum doesn't live commentate on the football forum, etc. That's the core of it - that poo poo sucks and breeds resentment all over the place. This is a long-standing rule, brought about when helldump was banished to where it belonged. Please just don't do this. If you read D&D, accept that you're going to read posts by people you are going to disagree with vehemently, and use whatever equanimity you have to resist the urge to go write commentary on those posts in some other thread.

I also can't have a thread where the response to enforcing that rule is screaming at the mods and calling them nazis or cops or bootlickers. That just can't be the arrangement here - you're screaming at the bank tellers over fdic rules. It's lovely to treat mods that way the same way it is lovely to treat other posters that way. There are places you can post about moderation, I write lots of PMs each day, but the politics forum isn't it. I'm not asking the unpaid volunteer moderators to endure unbounded abuse because you disagree with something. This is something awful, you are overtly allowed to express yourself forcefully here, but any action taken towards enforcing the aforementioned rule in succ zone has been met with a response that is way, way over the line.

It is cool to laugh at liberals and democrats in c-spam. It is not cool to give live commentary on posters on other parts of this website in c-spam. Please respect that distinction - I do not think it is asking a lot.

really because i was a regular poster in the succ zone and i can barely remember anyone getting probed at all and bear in mind that since im night crew id see probes that were only approved long after the fact

even in the context of moderation discussion we had far longer chats about threadbanning quetzadilla and mcmagic or banning jimmy dore conversations than i can remember anyone ever seriously getting mad about d and d
