Maybe start with policing yourself?

You just reminded me why you aren’t worth the effort now or ever.  No need to respond, I won’t read it, you are not capable of having a reasonable discussion and I won’t  waste my time with that.

Do you have any clue how often you accuse others of trolling? :lmao:

@Don't Noonanto use an LOD expression, that was a rather unmanly maneuver you just pulled to hide behind Joe's skirt like that. I'll stick on 21 and leave it at that.

Pointing out lies in thread titles that insinuate the President of the United States conspired with Russia after Mueller report shows the opposite is unmanly?  Sorry, I don't appreciate your crying about this and I see the trolls bucky and scooter happily liked your misguided post.

Yes, let's not talk about moderation in the Official PSF Moderation Thread.

Please try to keep things gender neutral. You make it sound like it’s lesser to wear a skirt where as we strive to make everyone greater.

None of us appreciate your childish behavior. You don't engage in good faith conversation,  you post fallacies consistently, you treat others poorly and you whine to the mods at every opportunity. These traits are not even exclusive to the PF.

That you have the audacity to call out ANYONE else on this board for their behavior is just continuing proof of your inability to conduct yourself in a manner that will benefit the community. 

@Joe BryantI don't believe I've ever addressed you directly in the 17+ years I've been a member/ subscriber here. I've never reported anyone or put anyone on ignore and I've never received so much as a warning,  let alone a suspension. You're a busy guy that doesn't have time to follow individual posters and their content. I respect that. I like this place, always have. But this poster is a perfect example of the things you claim you don't want on your board. And you're allowing him to dictate what goes on, to the detriment not only of discourse,  but the enjoyment of a majority of members. Changing thread titles has always been a part of this place.  Are you going to tell @Capellathat he can no longer make jokes with the NBA thread title? That would be a net loss for these boards, IMO.

Thank you for your time and hearing me out, and for your efforts to improve our experiences here.

Thanks for being here so long! And for sure, not reporting posters isn't a good thing though. We need that. Very often it's the only way we see something that's over the line. So please report things over the line. And yes, Cappella and I talked about the title thing a good while back and he dialed it back some. It's more a guideline. I just very much prefer targeted threads vs rotating titles that don't match up with the vast majority of the pages in the thread. Way better in my opinion to have targeted threads. 

Looks like the noonan poster you referenced has been suspended twice lately. He's dictating absolutely nothing. The moderators will see if he can continue posting here. Thanks for being part of the boards.

Nope, I treat others how they treat me.  I have been a subscriber for as long as you have.  Pointing out flat out lies to Joe seems like something weird to get bent out of shape over.  I posted about this to @whoknew a few days ago and asked him to change it and he refused.  If he would have simply changed it he would still have the ability to make changes to titles.

Just to be clear, WhoKnew's thread titles have not been on the trolling insulting side, at all.

The guy has been the model of moderation even taking requests from Trump critics. He's a cool guy online and more than fair.

It's provided news updates and kept the title in line with current events. I'm not lobbying, just keeping the record straight.

Joe I know you've got work-work to do, seriously not bothering you about this, just getting it down.

I don't put people on ignore, and your little games aren't going to make me change that. I have no problem being respectful to you or engaging you elsewhere,  but if you'd like to put me on ignore or not respond to me ever again in the PF then I would be amenable to that arrangement.

I don't put people on ignore either.  I have no problem being respectful to you and you normally are very respectful, except for your attack on me above.

Joe I know you've got work-work to do, seriously not bothering you about this, just getting it down.

Understood. Look, I don't have time to micro manage this every minute. It's my strong preference we don't change titles constantly in a thread. It's a moving target. I completely get it that other people like it. I hate the giant threads where you can't find anything. I hate taking a huge thread and posting a new title with a serious accusation in the title and you click on the first page and it's something 4 years old. I know the "inside people" like it. Someone visiting looks at it and is :confused:   Probably why we have so few new people coming in. 

I'd much rather start a new thread on a topic and keep it on topic. I'm not going to suspend anyone if they don't and I'm not going to look at every little thing. My guess is you guys will just wear me down on this and not do what I asked and I won't have the energy to keep asking. So do whatever you think is best. I'm asking nicely to not constantly be rotating thread titles.

I remember my Mom becoming exasperated with us kids constantly running to her to mediate minor disputes that we purposefully cultivated.  I apologized to her once I was grown for having so exhausted her in my less mature years..  I was glad I did.  I am surprised now to discern her emerging exasperated tone in Mr. Bryant's tone.  I believe only children can evoke that tone.  Sad that we would reduce our benefactor to bordering on such a state.  BTW, thanks for being a benefactor Joe.

For what it's worth, I think it's usually easier to find something if it's in a big thread. This thread is a good example. If I want to see what people were saying about the Russia stuff in December 2017, there's a record of it here. If the Russia stuff were spread out over 50 different threads, most of it would be much harder to find. JMHO. [Oops. I thought this was the Russia thread rather than the moderation thread -- my mistake, but same point.]

I have clicked on a lot of threads and posts from ignored posters in my day, and I have regretting it on occasion, but never more than in this thread/these posts. Yowza. 

@Joe Bryant I still disagree with you regarding the stuff we've butted heads over lately, but after seeing what you're dealing with I think you all deserve more than a little slack.

I wasn’t the one whining about the moderation.  I was pulling the whining out of another thread so I wasn’t accused of derailing it when I responded to someone.

I’ve noticed it, too, and I completely agree with DW. The whining, complaining and trolling has gotten pretty bad (20+ years here), and I find myself here less as a result. Not to add to your work load, but other than what you usually say about reporting, what can we do to help you all? A lot of us care, and I’m sure many of those that care would like to help.

Wat?

Today's discussion was triggered (pun intended) by a pro-Trump guy who complained and reported until the rules were changed to placate him.
