Oh, they work more out of the spotlight, as it were. It's not always me when a reported post gets dealt with. Not by a long shot.

Do at least TRY to pay attention or work things out for yourself.

Pruning thread to remove the utter crap.

Everyone read the first post again. You are all clearly having trouble understanding it. My patience has run out, and the aforementioned extreme and unfair prejudice will be applied to everyone who has posted on this thread if it continues.

If someone has posted in the 'Post Here to get banned extreme stupidity filter" thread in the past




can you get some immunity in that thread without getting banned again?....just not much happening in that thread lately....might be more exciting if there were 1 day/ 1week bans as opposed to 3 week/ 1 month bans.....

No, I think I'll stick with leaving immunity to those who have made a major contribution to "silleh" at the moderators' discretion. And the ban length will only ever increase.

Not a tcn question, or even an important one, but Sarky, you are a mod. Why's your name not in bold font like the rest?

surely banning more folk for less time would be better for all concerned?

you could ban the same person several times an hour, the Mod equivalent of the

Probably something to do with the days way back when I was a Hmod. <shrug>

That would trivialise the concept of banning, and cause me a hell of a lot more work to boot. I'm not looking to ban as many people as possible, no moderator worth their salt would be that eager to empty their forum.

What I am looking to do is teach a lesson: that thread is for people who are too stupid to realise that posting there has a consequence, and anyone who ignores the OP or all the bans that have so far been meted out, and posts there without immunity will be treated as someone who's just done something extremely stupid.

Call it mean, or bad modding, or whatever you like. But I'm not going to mollycoddle users like the rest of Boards. They can use common sense or they can send me a shocked PM demanding why I banned them from a thread that clearly states what happens when you post there.

Would just like to say that I have been guilty of quite a lot of chat in non-chat threads here. This shall henceforth be rectified. Apart from the purpose-built chat thread (and a line or two in the count one) my gob will be shut.
