Except nobody got banned.
Even if it were the case a Tom and Jerry style cat and mouse game isn't a very honest or mature way to handle things, especially given the bait itself is against the forum rules.
I hope I haven't got the wrong end of the stick here, but I'm pointing out that it wasn't a trap thread.
I've no idea why Poozy locked and created a few of those threads.

It wasn't trap thread, but it was definitely a spam thread right? I'm serious when I say I have trouble telling the difference. Either way, I do think it would be a good way to get the unrepentant spammers outta here.

Knowing myself, I would probably get caught in the crossfire though...

Maybe a "EDIT" BUTTON would be a nice feature to have rather than thinking over before you post for typos and stuff like that.

No, just no.

would be abused to no end so people will make each other look like idiots

As for discussion on mod habits and such. If you have a problem with them then discuss it with them and another mod who mods that part of the site as well.

Understandable, but for the most part the members here can make a great decision. We've only done this once to my knowledge and Bahamut was the one chosen as a new moderator and he was modded. I don't see this being a problem. Who knows, you could end up as a moderator.

Disregard users who point out your typos, chances are it's because they have no opinion on your post but still want to hold onto the "big man on campus" act

Read the title of the thread. There's your reason.

The purpose of that thread was to keep people from making 800 MLP threads every day like they were before that thread.

Also, on another note, I didn't realize it was against the rules to insult mods and admins, I thought we were allowed to say whatever we want.

MLP C&C thread is in creation and will be out shortly. This means the MLP general thread will remain locked for the time being.

Ah, now you're gonna have fun redirecting the 2,000 My Little Pony thread makers to that very thread. "Questions about MLP" "So, how likes ponies" "Im a bronie" and "Which is your fav pony" so on and so forth.

Also, I would like it if my devout faith in God, Jesus, and The Holy Ghost was not ridiculed.

It's a Catch-22 really. At least people won't have to see the MLP thread clogging up their three "What is the most Overrated x" thread.

They were already redirected to the MLP discussion thread. Also there seem to be more video game related threads in General being redirected than that of the pony threads.

You are correct my fine sir. Now, let's do the same with repetitive religious topics.

Agreed, but at least I won't have to be reminded of it every time that monster of a MLP discussion thread turns up on the front page of general. It's C&C's problem now.

By monster I refer to its size, and the fact that every time I saw it on the front page of gen it reminded me of a sea monster's back breaching the surface.

I wouldn't know.

I also don't understand how posting pointless spam on a message board could be considered fun, especially to someone who considers themselves or is looked at as being 'mature'. I don't understand how some of the moderators can keep their on site status after they've clearly abused their privileges and banned another user for personal reasons, or because they have conflicting opinions, whatever the case may be. I think you should accept the status to help the site grow, and show your support, rather than drive people away from it in any manner. Even if you're not entirely enthusiastic about it, at least don't set a horrible example because that sends mixed messages, and before you know it everyone's walking over the top the site, taking advantage of it, abusing it, not giving a fuck about anything because the supposed leaders don't, or they're at least giving the illusion that they don't. I think that leads to these 'downfalls'. I'm not the only one who kinda sees that the general forums are kinda going downhill. I just want things to be more positive around the board, and the negativity stripped, even the sarcasm, it's just not healthy.

My personal idea of fun in regards to message boards/the site is partaking in a conversation that's somewhat stimulating/captures my interest. Not personally posting a bunch of random garbage, banning every person from the audio portal because I hate their music. I think actually doing some actual good is more fun than anything. But you know, that's just me. Go contribute something worthwhile, have fun, talk about what you want, just stay positive and have some class while doing so.

These are the opinions and thoughts of cast, based on what he has seen and feels is right.
