What you and the others don't seem to be getting...you all did break the rules, and you were not infracted (except for the more serious ones) but only had your posts deleted and given a warning....but since that did not get through to you...from now on it will be infractions.

I always love responses like that...."I can't control myself or my own actions, so just close it." Part of growing up and becoming a mature adult is being able to control your actions yourself.

Didn't you just say that you weren't going to bother any more?

You really have not been here very long and know nothing about me do you? Someone thinking they are being clever asks me to close a thread or ban them...and I do it. If someone does not want to follow the rules....then they can leave. It's that simple.

I hope you realize that you are inches away from banning. This is not your home or junior high school...acting snarky with the staff does not get you a cookie.

And if we want to discuss our favourite celebs, we may as well go to the frat house
The staff has discussed this many times. We feel that individual "appreciation" threads for a celebrity can stay open if they stay on topic and don't get out of line with the "frat house" mentality....but yes, please one of you ask for this to be closed again and I will humbly comply with your request.

Like I said....moving closer and closer to banning with every post you make.

It also confirms something else that I suspected, that the offensive content makes up only a fraction of the deleted posts and that more posts are deleted just because they reference the initial post.
That's the point. If a person makes an offensive post...and 5 people quote it or continue to joke about it...that makes 6 offensive uncalled for posts. It shows a pervading attitude in the thread. An attitude that needs to stop.

I hope you know...I have not yet had the time to go through the previous threads....so who knows what I will find when I do. Just because something was not infracted or deleted in the other threads does not mean that they were acceptable...it means that they were not seen by the staff because these threads were inadvertainly overlooked before.

Usually they don't bother to answer or even discuss these things.

And if you sum it up like this, i can also see the criticized "Frat House".

But i also have to agree with Spidey here:



But let's end this thing (not the thread of course, there is no need to do that), we will behave in the future and the world will keep on turning.
You're welcome.
