Chickenshit or not... they're not going to happen if they ban your ass a few times, are they?
It's not a horrible plan (though it's easily circumvented - get an anonymous/tor browser). It's a horrible policy though... but will bullshit tools at their disposal, what are they going to do?
The threads associated with the website mugshots... and all of the associated Max Reith photoshops cemented my love for this place.
I haven't threatened anybody and I'm not worried about waking up and finding porn on the board. It would be nice if people gave a shit and PM'd a Mod knowing there's no other way to report a post.
I like you Gomer
It does on my screen. I'm using your Firefox script too. The one that counts douchebags online
This is a "solid" "good get" capable of coaching up post.

I lumped you in with AA because you replied to a post about him threatening to ban posters. That is what I was talking about when I said context. The point of it was how can posters moderate the board without the proper tools, and then be banned for it? I understand you want the tools too, but why should posters be banned for the site's lack of tools?
Anyway, which mod to we have to PM when there is no mod on the board? There are 18 of them, and PMing every single mod is a pain in the ass. Plus, it's not like that would have done anything.
I understand the frustration about having porn on the site for 9 hours, yet the posters should not be punished for it. That is the only point I have been making.
People don't give a shit:
A. Because 95% of them are entertained by the whole thing.
B. 247 doesn't give a shit.
How hard is it to code a button above reply in each post that:
A. Opens a PM
B. Populates "to" with all the mods
C. Includes a link to that specific post in the subject
Pretty effing hard I guess. The button would have to be specific to each board I guess. But jesus these guys suck.
I fully expect my bans to not exceed 24 hours when I partake in such threads =)
I have sent those PMs....and gotten people banned as a result
35,600 posts and counting since 09-09-2002. tRCMB Dead Pool Commissioner.
Nope, his act doesn't bother me cause I know him in person....Ross a number of times though
yes it is going to happen because the only people that will be left are the assholes willing to post porn and continue to start new names.
Your logic is rather flawed. I am not going to hang around a site that keeps banning me for stupid reasons, and I can bet I am not the only one. Same thing with your tear gas analogy. If I keep going down a street where I get tear gassed all the time, I am not suddenly going to be reporting everything I see to the police. I am simply not going to go to that street anymore.
Alienating customers is not a good solution to a problem.
I didn't see the thread as I was in Maryland on business so I'm not even sure what happened. If another poster quoted the pics in question...they could be banned. Just bumping the thread, to me, isn't even worth discussing.
If you seriously want to know who to PM I would suggest me, AA, d.mcc and PR Stoetzer. We are all on here a lot.
I'll be honest here too. I pay attention to my PM box but I've seen a new notification for a PM sent days before.
You could also bump this thread .
The higher ups at 247 have done that since the beginning....and it doesn't seem to be effecting their bottom line at all. They don't give a shit about the boards we all know this. It isn't going to change.
I never said that I was going to ban posters. Although you keep saying that I'm threatening it over and over. That comment came out of discussions with other mods and Trevor about how there isn't anything that we can do about a group of immature posters being unable to follow board rules. It was my opinion that up to that kind of action could happen if people kept doing it and that's where my comment came from. This wasn't the first or even second time in the past few days that posters have posted porn. We just don't have users on here that GAF about trying to help the board out anymore. That's frustrating.
Why is quoting the porn bannable? When you quote pics, the pic is not quoted. I would understand if it copied the pic, but it doesn't.
As for the other stuff, you are asking posters to have knowledge that is not readily known. On top of all that, it's pretty clear PMing anyone the other day would have done nothing. If someone calls 911 and no one shows up, then people will stop calling 911. So I am not sure any of those things you mentioned are real solutions.
Speaking of banning. Think our friend Issac_N needs one
There may have been moderators active on other boards besides tRCMB.
My logic is flawed???????????????????
If you don't post in a thread with porn in it... you're not going to get banned.
People post porn to get attention. If no one replies, they don't get attention. The only way for them to get attention is to start many porn threads under many names at once. And that would be horrible. It would be like a porn cold war. Many many porn threads at once... gosh, I shudder to think about it.
I don't condone the policy.
Your analogy is reta... stupid. The people getting teargassed while the guy ran by with the stop sign weren't out there to report the incident to the police. They were cheering it on.
Try to keep up.
The pics don't get quoted? Then disregard that statement.
That guy was gone 10 minutes ago. You can thank AA for that.
Oh, well done sir! Think hes making his rounds through UM/MSU/OSU boards
Then what the heck did you mean by "the bannings will probably be a little more all-inclusive"? You didn't even clarify when someone asked "what?? banning people for posting in a porn thread? only 1 guy broke the rules...." In fact, you continued with the point that bumping the thread was just as bad. How is that not threatening to ban posters the next time something like this happens?
The thing is, people conduct themselves by your rules, but are not about to enforce them if they don't care about them. Most people on here don't care about porn being on a message board, and they are especially not going to go out their way in order to enforce them. Especially if no one is there to enforce it anyway.
