Recent bannings and deletions

Yeah I want to stay away, but then I am also like ‘ooooh trainwreck’ probably one of the reasons I got regular status.

Mabe we need a “banana-fy this topic” button for each user, so we can just look at it, and not have reply buttons till you turn it off at the top of the thread?

I’d have gone with any of Cicero’s tedious self-congratulation around Catiline. :wink:

Would disemvowelling be worth considering instead of deletion?

Hahaha NOPE

True. All the more reason not to ban a regular forever, unless something really extreme happens.

No, it wouldn’t. Since the toxic waste would still be there, stinking up the joint.

yeah but you can just collapse the thread

I know! It’s like broken windows, man! Don’t like racism and sexism? Just don’t look at it! So easy. Easy peasy lemon motherf**king sqeezy!

uh… going off the deep end much?

Yeah but you can just not look at the threaded racism and sexism. Threads, man. Threads. That’s where it’s at.

Think about it. 7-Elevens. 7 dwarves. 7, man, that’s the number. 7 chipmunks twirlin’ on a branch, eatin’ lots of sunflowers on my uncle’s ranch. You know that old children’s tale from the sea. It’s like you’re dreamin’ about Gorgonzola cheese when it’s clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

So … it was discussed way back then therefore automatically “nope”?

Because you don’t like it?

Fair enough.

There was a fairly detailed explanation in the cited post; feel free to read it.

I did.

And it was pretty well refuted by a couple of other posters.

Debatable. Reply in that topic if you have new arguments to bring to bear. The main problem is, disemvowelling screws up the discussions for innocent bystanders, and requires a lot of ongoing explanation. The case for it is extremely weak, and it has major cons.

I’m majorly opposed to things that make average readers suffer. Write once, read many. (Note, I’d put threaded discussions in that same bucket. Don’t like a tangent? It’s on you to collapse it, son! Click that mouse and tap that screen! Do work!)

Yeah, but you also think hearts are better than stars.

They’re always after me

Whooaaa the 1960s Lucky Charms used a six pointed star?? I can see that would not fly today.
