I'm a little confused. Was this post directed at me? If so, I don't get the relevance of the post deletion that you quoted (from nearly four years ago).

Anyway, the "no serial groaning" rule has indeed been enforced many timesóyour case is just one example. Just one of thousands of moderator actions that you never see.
No, not aimed at you. Just an example of a certain mod powertripping. the 'abusive' PM was sent over one year before the ban.

On the contrary, I say far worse face to face than I do on the internet.

Re: Mod shakeup

Wasn't sure if to start a new thread about this, but I thought this might be a good place to put something for a mod to see...

There appears to be some funky bidness going on in the forum by a poster with the name of "smmgoal." It appears to be some kind of bot or something (no idea).

I noticed it a bit ago when I saw that a post I had created (in the Amazon thread) a couple weeks ago is now saying that it's posted by someone with the name of "smmgoal." (Sorry if I shouldn't have put this here...)

Not a clue what this thread is really about (I can see by the number of posts it is exploding, so it is emotive for sure) but a bot got banned that has to be good

I have dipped in and out and recognise some of the usernames but lost as to the tales and tit-4-tat but shame as I think this forum is amazing.

You pathetic lot really don't have anything better to do than to bicker, plot and twist every ounce of decency out of each other? Sad.

As usual, I don't get what's going on - should I report myself for disturbing images?
We would have to ban at least half the avatars.

Yes, I can see that. Do you reckon that by closing down this thread, it will resolve anything? I doubt it.
People will keep on bickering, discussing each other's daily achievements on other platforms, give out mutual-virtual handjobs and laugh and bicker some more about who's incapable of what and why did they post that. I don't care OG. This thread will at least keep everybody in one place.

Re: Mod shakeup

It's one of the 'dangers' of online communications among strangers. People can easily dehumanize someone when they don't know them in the real world and aren't dealing with them face-to-face. Also... There's the dopamine factor. Sites like this are designed to increase dopamine (that's what makes them addicting). And increased dopamine makes people aggressive and competitive.

Ya see people, it's the dopamine. Good. We finally figured it out. I'm going to bed. Nighty-nights! Can the last one turn off the lights please. Thanks.

As fmf already said. And it seems to work. Like an invisible fence keeping in the flock of sheep, huh?
