    Genuine question, is it several mods or just that clown HA doing all the changes?

    Can't say I've ever paid attention who the mods were until now, MrTomftw seems nice though.

    You're better than that, mate.
    I'd have kept that one in my back pocket longer. Wasted
    ;-P yeah, but the original use must still be fresh or the context will be lost.

    It's a fine line I guess.

    I was annoyed at HA taking liberties with his power beyond his duty.

    Then he spoke to Venatio and Venatio said it's basically okay. So it now is his duty, so I'm begrudgingly fine with it.

    So that's kind of where it should end, as long as it's just thread titles that need grammatical fixes or whatever the decided upon rules are, and not comedy fixes or ones for personal stylistic reason.

    Who made my wii u deus ex thread a general gaming thread?  Everyone knows the elite gamepad version should have its own thread.  Have they nothing better to do?  The little princesses.

    Which'd be great if the fixes to some of the thread titles weren't grammatically unsound (even the change to this thread has two errors in it!). And what about the "swapsie" threads? Changing those is just being a self-entitled dick.

    Couldn't give two shits about thread titles, HairyArse or Nipples. But for the love of god bring back Portable view for fucks sakes fuckers.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    You realise half the stuff that HA is being accused of, he didn't even do right?

    I thought calling bdaggers princess was me taking the high ground after he called me a cunt.

    Also, that's exactly why the thread was locked - he ruined what was a reasonably healthy discussion up until that point.

    YES

    Let's focus on the more pressing issues here, people.

    Also, for the tenth time today, I haven't edited a thread title since Friday. I'm not the only one with a Nazi-gold-plated Sheriff's badge around here.

    You cant run around calling folk a princess, princess.  It upsets people.  They arent even real people, just internet people, its not the same thing.

    Again, I didn't name any names, but pointing out that someone did it.

    @HairyArse

    I don't know if this will help or hinder your cause, but I agreeded with your moderation initiatives. Fortunately for you, so does kalel; because my endorsement might have been a citation of proof that everyone disagrees with you.

    However, I think the “princess” remark was wrong on all counts. It wasn't required to begin with imo. But assuming it was required, why not go for the one wood, instead of the putter?

    To quote Point Break, “ If you project weakness, you draw aggression... that's how people get hurt. Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation ... to come true. You project strength to avoid conflict.”
  • Deleted user 22 October 2013 20:27:40
    You said you didn't name names but you referred to Princess bdaggers in your original post.

    It really is the end of reason when people start quoting bloody Point Break.

    You're a mod, you're not supposed to engage in slanging matches.

    Okay, so this thread isn't locked (and will hopefully remain civil) - so why exactly are all these silly changes being made around the forum? It's draw enough ire to be an issue for some posters, so why bother doing it? They're not even constructive changes, just change for the sake of it and looks like it's been done purely because someone has the power to do so.
