Reported Threads Discussion

Post by Ice Cream Jonsey » Sun Dec 24, 2017 2:56 pm

This thread is for the community discussion of reported posts. First up is a post by Casual Observer. The report said that his post was unhelpful and rude. I agreed with that report. I don't have the exact message handy. I feel Casual Observer would also agree with the report, so I think we have consensus on it?

Now that this is a thing, I went back and reported RealNC's criticism of the Pinback Morning Show. Still haven't recovered from that one. :(
Above all else... We shall go on... And continue!

Right, so what's the punishment for being unhelpful and rude? The Electric Chair? I was sent to the Electric Chair as punishment for overeating. Stoning? The Bible is big on stoning for a lot of crimes.

But today is Christmas Eve. Let's send him some non-Christian charity & mercy and just sentence him to a lump of coal in his stocking. But he has to pay for it. Amazon sells a lump of coal in stocking for $5.95, in a cool glacier blue box for $9.95.

Damn, I forgot the Tie-in line. Ferris Bueller once said his friend was so tight assed that if you stuck a lump of coal up his ass in two weeks you'd have a diamond.

I had recently reported a post by Casual Observer for "Being a spoilsport." It was posted in RealNC's electronica thread and went:

Sheesh, this is fucking sad. Someone with nothing but free time wants to nickel and dime his online friends cause he's too afraid to try to get some real gigs. Can we put our heads together to help the Dr get some situations? Someone can help him get an upwork account, teach him how to respond to job ads from people that don't care he's morbidly obese and may not last much past the project.
I felt that I was in the right for doing so, but the result was a ban warning on me. I will respect this decision if I have to but I would like a second opinion from one of the other two moderators of this sight (AArdvark, Ice Cream Jonsey) before doing so.
