    Fine, Pepsipop.

    If you want to have, like last night, a flood of threads with massive Bioshock Infinite spoilers in the thread titles and the same spoilers posted in all the most recent threads on the forum, you can have them.

    If you like, I'll ruin the game for you now with the massive spoilers, so you can have a sense of how annoying some aspects of visiting the forum would be without moderation.

    For what it's worth, I don't think a spell of no moderation would be a disaster, it's just the internet after all. A fair slice of EG is self-policing, as this thread was sort of discussing yesterday.

    I'm actually in favour of the three days off thing. I'm pretty sure this place would be fine. Mostly.
    No, no. I think you're a great mod.

    I was referring more to the ones where there is a juicy debate going on.

    Things like spam and weirdos doing spoilers need to be kept in check.

    Further to my last post, for the record the reason I like this place so much over other place is precisely because anything goes and the moderation tends to take a hands-off approach for anything other than spambots. Yes the stuff about me gets a bit tedious, but I would far rather people posted it and be allowed to post it than mods start clamping down on anyone giving anyone else a bit of stick and the forum lose its feel.

    Giving fruit a mod tag was great if only for the incredulous rage.

    He had the tag. It was like putting a firemans hat on a toddler.
