Okay, so you come back to the board one day, and more than a dozen threads have been moved out of Serious Discussion. At least two of them were very serious indeed...but that didn't help them.

They were moved to obscurity because any thread posted here, regardless of intent or effort extended, is at the mercy of the mod who is feeling LEAST reasonable on any given day.

Which is why this board is doomed.

This ain't one of the Big Boards. Having a snobby fucking attitude about what's serious and what isn't is a sure fire way of making sure you wind up with two types of people: asshole mods with a terminal case of big-fish-in-a-little-pond, and people that will put up with ANYTHING.

This is fucking bullshit, and the mod responsible for this most recent purge should be dragged out and given the bastinado. Yeah, I'm talking about YOU, Fallen. What the FUCK was that all about? Do you think you're fucking editing the goddamn New Yorker here or something? With a small and shrinking user base, you think you have grounds to be a choosy little shit about what meets the (ever undefined) "standards" of this "holy ground"?

No wonder this place is a fucking morgue. Bastards like YOU killed it. You've taken the funniest joke religion since Mormonism and SUCKED ALL THE FUN OUT OF IT. Congratulations. Jackass.

On a REAL board, the mods fucking ENCOURAGE content, they don't goddamn SMASH IT FLAT AT BIRTH. They spend more time improving the board (some fucking smileys would be nice), and they don't spend all their goddamn time purging the discussion boards of everything that, you know, might be FUN to debate about.

You MIGHT consider building a USER BASE and a little CONTENT before you start being a picky bastard.

But you won't.

See you in IFU.

Or kill me.

Hell yeah!

first they came for the serious discussion, but I did not speak up because I was not a serious discussion....

this place reminds me of The Fall Of The House Of Usher

I.
In the greenest of our valleys,
By good angels tenanted,
Once a fair and stately palace -
Radiant palace - reared its head.
In the monarch Thought's dominion -
It stood there !
Never seraph spread a pinion
Over fabric half so fair.
II.
Banners yellow, glorious, golden,
On its roof did float and flow;
(This - all this - was in the olden
Time long ago)
And every gentle air that dallied,
In that sweet day,
Along the ramparts plumed and pallid,
A winged odor went away.
III.
Wanderers in that happy valley
Through two luminous windows saw
Spirits moving musically
To a lute's well-tunÚd law,
Round about a throne, where sitting
(Porphyrogene !)
In state his glory well befitting,
The ruler of the realm was seen.
IV.
And all with pearl and ruby glowing
Was the fair palace door,
Through which came flowing, flowing, flowing,
And sparkling evermore,
A troop of Echoes whose sweet duty
Was but to sing,
In voices of surpassing beauty,
The wit and wisdom of their king.
V.
But evil things, in robes of sorrow,
Assailed the monarch's high estate ;
(Ah, let us mourn, for never morrow
Shall dawn upon him, desolate !)
And, round about his home, the glory
That blushed and bloomed
Is but a dim-remembered story
Of the old time entombed.
VI.
And travellers now within that valley,
Through the red-litten windows, see
Vast forms that move fantastically
To a discordant melody ;
While, like a rapid ghastly river,
Through the pale door,
A hideous throng rush out forever,
And laugh - but smile no more.

There, that's better. Back where the thread belongs.

Also, a rant isn't supposed to make the intended audience comfortable. Just saying.
