    Smart money is not on mod sass, it's on 'terrible modding'.
    I already know when the hammer was dropped but the mod team here has some secrecy shit going on so if I come out and say anything I'll be the next on the hit list... feel me?


    Anyway, he got a ban for Darwinism even though the very core of his post was merely an allusion to the meme and not him actually using it.

    You wouldn't know that though because you've demonstrably never picked up a book nor educated yourself on the matter. Let me guess, overweight housewife?

    You still think this is about the meme itself and not the thoughtless, thread-killing "+1" style "OH BOY NEW THREAD IN GENERAL WHO WINS THE RACE TO POST IT" posting that abuse of said meme became? Really? Or are you pulling some meta-troll shit by pretending to not understand the actual issue.

    Can we add "misuse of the word 'too'" to this list as well?

    I personally don't have a problem if it at minimum looks like the poster made an effort to contribute, but whether or not it is officially 'ok' isn't up to me. I'm just arguing what makes the most sense. Shit like 'carwinism' is just 'me too' posting and there's a good reason it was banished from Advanced.

    Edit: And asking unpaid forum mods to have to split hairs on which instances are okay and which aren't isn't a worthwhile compromise on the issue. Eventually the +1 crap will die down anyway, which as the immediate consequence of the rule is a net positive in my view.

    I don't have the patience to mod. If Kuya doesn't get to be a mod then neither do I

    I can't help but feel like we've crossed a line when we are banning things for being annoying. Darwinism is 50x more funny than the stupid translator thing will ever be. What annoys some people is entertainment to others, it'll be a sad day when you can't crack a joke in general.

    And if a one word post is a "thread killer" then I can assure you the thread was shit to begin with.

    And gosh if only there were a sandbox forum or something where shitty threads could get shat on by folks with nothing but an interest in shitting on shitty threads!

    One-word memes bumping bad threads craps up whatever forum they inhabit.

    Meh just sounds like all these rules are made so that people can be butthurt all day and look legit, like I said in spam. Whiny nerds IRL become whiny nerds with justification on the internet.

    The folks 'defending' spamming general are whining harder than those who aren't.

    So can we ban for lol, lmao, ^, this, etc... ?? All that shit is the same and even though it may fall under the rules it's never enforced. I know you see my point and will continue to play advocate but you can't tell me general is some haven for well thought out discussion all the time. I don't post in general much but I read a lot of it, and theres a lot of high horseing going on I know that.
