“i'm just sayin.....”
“Who pissed in your cornflakes?”
“you ain't sayin' much there reachAround.”
“Oh Man, we can't get this guy to shut up! He just goes on and on and on and on and on..... post after post, thread after thread....
JEEZ what a load of hot air!
“now you post random links? wtf?”
“i thought my link ties in nicely with the fuego.”
“it's just random sh.t.”
“then it fits in perfectly on this forum!
I'm glad you approve.”
“fnord keeps a spare eyebrow in its pocket.”
“Then I saw the fnords.”
“My oldest son bought a whall shaving kit and promptly shaved the cat to look like a lion. It's hurt his self esteem a lot. The cat's, not the boy's....”
And now...Generic Fuego
“[insert witty comment with slight political overtones]”
“Stovie gets to go first.”
“I blame Canada for this thread...”
“WTF? Most of today's threads are fuego in disguise.
Are the moderators asleep or just don't give a schidt?”
“That's just my campsite after a night of eating rehydrated canned chili...”
“What your bra size stovette?”
“No fuego thread posts since before Christmas? What changed? Oh yeah, they banned Nigel.
It is a significant improvement. Thanks mods!”
“Are you talking bout Nigal? Nigel is trubrit.”
“Er...I'm not sure...maybe I shouldn't clarify for fear of getting myself banned.”
“They banned someone else as well so all the threads seem much nicer in tone and text...”
“It's pretty tacky to talk about someone while they can't respond.”
“nigal was definitely NOT the problem”
“If he was trubrit then in a way he was part of it. Right or wrong, whenever we directly challenge you know who we are responsible for what happens just as much as you know who. We all know what the result will be when we do it. And we all know that if we don't then we might as well hand over ownership to you know who because walking on eggshells isn't what TT is supposed to be about. It would be best if you know who wasn't here or if EVERYONE used the ignore feature on him.”
“It would be best if you know who wasn't here or if EVERYONE used the ignore feature on him.”
winner winner chicken dinner!”
“hyway, like sticks said, i think you're confusing nigAl with nigEl...trubrit's real name was nigel(i believe), not to be confused with the pant-less wonder, nigal”
“I think Nigal and Nigel are both banned.”
“nigal is banned, trubrit was it appears lol.”
“There's a positive vibe about the forum in the past few days”
“We have an ignore feature????”
“Since I don't do fuego I just knew Nigel was the bloody Brit ;-) from a little conversation he and I had a few months ago. LOL!
Nigal did seem a little testy even on the this side of the board...must have been from light deprivation because this part of the country is nothing but clouds this time of the year. It is depressing.”
““We have an ignore feature????”
Yes, but true to its name, most people ignore it.”
“Waitwaitwait, so NigAl got banned? Wha'd he get das boot for?
Hyway you tawkin 'bout the messiah?”
oh yeah, another thang...
“Now, this might be a fuego thread, altho it's on the "normal" board. But is there a big difference in the real TT world, as compared to the fuego TT world?
I wouldn't know, cause I never check the fuego topic when I open up TT.”
“What the living heyall !!!!!
I just got a warning email from Noncon, it says I "have to end the personal 'attacks' ". So when was it that I performed a personal attack on some dooshbag anyhow?”
“The ignore feature is terrible. On every other forum if you ignore someone it just deletes their posts and quotes from the threads, there is no little + sign that shows up hundreds of times for he who must not be named being ignored. I think the way Matt implemented it was bad, if he had done it the other way no one would ever know they were ignoring the bad ones and forget about them.”
“Dub - Whenever I ignore someone end up clicking on the plus sign just to see what stupid line or offensive image is being posted. Then I wish I hadn't.”
“Yawl might complain about the iggy button, but hyway is totally right. If we all iggy'd the messiah, TT's quality would shoot up quick-like.
Man that warning email is burnin' my a$$ .........
.........Noncon, you got mail.”
“noncom, this naked guy on TT keeps talking about his burning a$$.
errr, i thought this was my e-mail program.”
“It's much quieter without all of them. It'd be even better if Trubit would have accepted his time out like a man.”
“I got your email NA, thank you. I will pass along your concerns about the inability to change your email address in your profile. Is that why you cc'd five other people---similar address issues? I haven't seen that issue come up on the main board.”
“Ignoring is the only option and its generally a poor solution.
Think of TT as your neighborhood, or work place or a social setting while shopping etc...You can only ignore the crazy guy with walmart bags on his feet screaming his lungs out for so long, especially when he is absolutely everywhere interjecting, derailing, sidetracking and intentionally trying to gain attention. That will push normally mellow folks like NA and many others to their limits and they respond. Its about a community standard.
You can call it group think, or some other label but the reality is often times people will come to the same conclusion without a conspiracy or agenda. They are simply sick of it.
The community here is being told by some of the mod staff that they are the problem. Thats akin to blaming a class of students for disrupting class when they call out the class loud mouth.
TT has historically been a place for meeting people with a focus on trips etc... Thats changed as all things do, but is this (at least what we had had prior to the timeouts) what anyone wants?
Isnt the point of moderation to maintain the standards and rules of the owners while at the same time keeping traffic and hits up? Many go on about group think (not my buzz word) but isnt moderation just being a group think enforcer for demand media?
And before the expected response of "you cant stop talking about him while he's gone"...dont forget people still talk about hitler and stalin not because they are missed or admired but because they changed things for the worse. TT has a pretty good collective memory.
If ignoring meant not having constant reminders and annoyances it would work. As its set up its half ass at best.
end of rant.”
