And I said it was a completely pointless thread and most people exploded?

When was the last reply to it? 28th November.

Thanks for proving my point, ladies and gentlemen.

This board has a thing for vaginal and buttsects.

seems more of an obsession for the buttsecks, with all the gay threads and all

*Whispers* straight couples have buttsex too.

yes, that is true, but it is much more popular amongst the homosexual male community, is it not?

I won't name names, but there is someone on the BBS who's had buttsex ..in front of her hanson posters.

An oldie but a goldie (i.e. I've said it before but I still find it amusing to the max)

*sigh*

And just because a thread doesn't get replies for a while, doesn't mean it was pointless. A lot of people liked it.

That is not a good idea. People would get enraged over it again.

Do you mean that you don't see their side of the argument, or you can't comprehend their posts? I'd think it was the latter.

hmph.

Remember when you dated Sky? Yeah. We all do stupid things when we're young. Really stupid things.

Just because you're smart enough NOW to post "lolz today i ate a fine sandwich and watched a movie and i think tom cruise is sexy" doesn't mean others don't deserve a chance.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 01:38 PM
i'd understand it if all the random shit was in fact confined to that one thread. but no, people continued spamming other threads (Photo Album, hello) with their random conversations instead of using SWOYM.

HornyPope
12-17-2005, 01:42 PM
Well then how does deleting SWOYM helps?

Remember when you posted threads made up entierely of your discussions with Sky and Sanni, and occasionaly others? And when someone complained and said "use aim or PMs", you replied... "just don't fucking click on the topic if you don't like"

BATWT
12-17-2005, 01:45 PM
banning threads like that makes no difference, as people will just post the same shit in a different thread, making it 'ok'. its for the birds, just leave the threads up, and if people want to post in them; let them. it frees up other - better - threads to actually contain relevent material

HP, just because i did something in the *PAST* doesn't mean I can't be annoyed by it at *this* point. Yes, I dated Sky, we all get it. yaddah yaddah ya. it just doesn't strike me as a particularly valid argument. When I was 12 I wore electric blue mascara. Doesn't mean I don't literally barf when I see it on other people though.

Deleting it doesn't help, maybe, but i don't quite see how it is so wrong of me to be annoyed by other people constantly whining about it being gone.

12-17-2005, 01:51 PM
meh it's a valid argument because it still gets done between people who have an established reputation here. there do seem to be double standards a lot of times for stuff like this.

HornyPope
12-17-2005, 01:55 PM
You can be annoyed of whatever you want.

You, however, asked if anyone defends SWOYM. Well I do. And the fact that you and Ozy and others are annoyed by it shouldn't negate anyone's ability to speak out. In particular since you, as we all did, behaved in a very similar manner when we started out on this board.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 01:59 PM
i just don't understand why "BUT U DID IT 2 A FEW YEARS AGO" is supposed to shut me up when i express my annoyance at something.

i didn't delete SWOYM. and i don't care if it gets deleted. however, i don't see why people made such a fucking huge deal out of it being gone. like, you know, spamming the board with 34095304 new "SWOYM" threads.

Sunny is correct, that thread is indefensible as is all organized stupidity.

The people who made all those threads didn't even use SWOYM thread. They just wanted to be annoying.

Not shutting you up, just reminding you where you stand. You know the classic pot, kettle, black story.

That's an entierly different argument.

Well then I did a pretty good job of defending it, didn't I?

The status quo wants the thread to stay. You'll need a far stronger argument beyond "I don't like it" to watch it go. And you don't have none.

Like I said, I never expected that thread to last more than two pages, so may it rest in peace.

Sunny

HP, here's what I find irritating about this whole deal. I didn't care about the existence of SWOYM, in fact, I hardly noticed it. Once it got deleted, though, and the SWOYM idiots started spamming, I started to think that it should never come back.

What I meant, originally, is that I didn't - still don't - understand people who defended the existence of SWOYM after the spamming episode. Rewarding the spammers with bringing the thread back.. well, it's just not something i agree with. at the same time, though, i don't have moderating powers, so who gives a shit.

and certainly, i've had random lame conversations on this board. we all have. however, i don't spam like a fucking retarded maniac if a thread of mine gets deleted, and i never have. even in the dating-sky-having-bad-hair days. =P

Lock or delete it, we have enough moderators to handle the chaos now. Right?

HornyPope
12-17-2005, 02:13 PM
No, that's not what you meant from the start. Now you're changing your stance to give more leverage to your agument. But i'll bite:

This isn't about rewarding anyone. It's about correcting a wrong. The spammers are very easy to deal with, and hold zero leverage against moderators in their tactics.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 02:16 PM
HP, one thing I definitely don't like is people telling me what I originally thought. One would assume I would know best, and I would appreciate it if you refrained from correcting me on the matter.

As I said, I found SWOYM to be pointless, yet harmless. After it got deleted, and people flipped the fuck out, I changed my stance to "fuck that shit, it needs to go".

Bringing it back reminds me of buying a spoiled brat a toy after it throws a huge fit. That's all.

Well then you certainly wouldn't like it if I corrected you again, huh?

Not relevant in the slightest.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 02:24 PM
There's a difference between "correcting" and "sharing your own interpretation". You seem to be doing the latter.

Personally, I find the brat analogy very relevant.. and so at this point I believe we should agree to disagree. Obviously we have very different views on this issue, and not planning to change them anytime soon.

Who decided to delete the damn thing in the first place, anyway?

HornyPope
12-17-2005, 02:29 PM
Oh you can disagree all you want. I simply answered your question. Not in the best tone perhaps, and not the way you would prefer, but answer the question I did.

Well it wasn't me. I can tell you this much.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 02:35 PM
Indeed, I felt the tone was somewhat uncalled for. It's alright though.

And yeah, I figured you didn't delete it. ;p

JohnnyNemesis
12-17-2005, 02:43 PM
Bah, I know the argument is over but...

We have an anti-spam stance on this BBS, right? The entire point of SWOYM is to spam. That's seriously the reason it was created. Seems pretty simple to me, honestly. Just delete the darned thing.

I've noticed the double standards thing too, and even though I've been annoyed by it, I've inadvertently been a part of it too. So I just judge that on a case-by-case basis. I don't think that shit matters in this case though, because is is irrelevant in this situation, for reasons I already stated.

Sunny
12-17-2005, 02:50 PM
On an unrelated note, I <3 your Incubus signature thingy. ;D And before anyone points it out, yes, I used to like Incubus way back in the day, misguided child that I was. And now I think they blow ass. :D

How does one post classifies as spam? It's just people having a mindless conversation. They bother no one.

It's not the double-standard, it's the memories of us being stupid kids five years ago in the Americana board. We had ridiculous fights and stupid posts and juvenile groups, and just anything to have a good time. Why act like we're so high and mighty and restrict others from playin' around a bit?

I have no problem with kids playing around. It was revived for that very purpose. And now it's been left for nearly a month. My point is not to argue whether it should be deleted or not, simply that there was a huge outcry, they got it back, and now it's been left.

Let's not discuss this any more. Or somebody will want to revive it. It was a big issue and I was glad everybody forgot about it already.
