    Default The closing of treads on politics

    I'm not accord with the way threads are closed in the politics forum by The Godess( I usually only come there, so I don't know how it is going on in the other parts). It started with the Anarchy sticky, where she showed clearly how she disliked Anarchy and so here true earth of on-objectivity was showen. Then she closed a couple of new Anarchy threads, which there were allready a lot so that was okay. But then she closed 'Would you like to live in an Anarchistic World?', which allready lived for a while and where there was a discussion going on at the moment. So someone else started a thread about the misusing of the mod functions, but 'cuz it wasn't politics'(while mods are kinda the leaders/policemen off the forum, and so exally it is), the thread was also closed. And then(or maybe before it) I pm'ed The Godess for it, but she never replied and allready sayed something like 'I don't give a shit what a member with less then 20 post pm me', even tho there will be a serious reason if he does.

    It is true there is seldom a good discussion going on, but that is for al threads, not only the Anarchy ones. But extreme racist threads or offensive osts or tolerated, while I think hurt a lot off persons. I've the feeling the mods just protect the popular, a-lot-posting members.

    Be careful NOAMR.

    The Goddess has the power now. If she disagrees with your political beliefs, she will silence you.

    I did read your PM and am aware of the feedback. Also, disagreed with quoted statement because I don't remember saying that, ever. Serious reasons are always accepted. If you still insist on me saying that, please link me to the respectable post I apparently made.

    The Anarchy sticky is temporary because of the recent flood of anarchy threads and we really don't need more than one or two. True, I personally don't agree with anarchy and I have a right to voice my opinion too. However the sticky is not about me disagreeing with anarchy. The sticky was about the pointlessness of some threads that were started which basically have nothing to say.

    I prefered to close the 'Would you like to live in an Anarchistic World?' topic (being aware of the discussion evolving at the end) because the first few pages of that thread were just horrible nonsense and no discussion at all. I can't imagine how anyone new reading that would wade through so much nonsense and actually find a discussion at the end. Also there already was another thread where you could continue the discussion. Or maybe I should have merged the threads which seems like an option.

    And maybe I'm the only one then who seems to see and recognise the joke in the apparently 'offensive' posts. I don't tolerate spam, pornographic content or extreme offensiveness. But I fully support controversy and humour.

    i don't see where people get off using "but other people post racist stuff!" as a defense of their posting pure spam.

    Personally, I love the argument that Sim is simultaneously closing too many threads and not closing enough of them.
    “It is a strange paradox that today’s central banks are generally staffed by economists, who by and large profess a belief in a theory which says that their jobs are, at the best, unnecessary, and more likely wealth-destroying. Needless to say, this is not a point widely discussed among respectable economists. Nevertheless, it is an issue worth pondering.”

    Don't expect him to make any intelligent points, he's a fuckin anarchist for Christs sake. Anarchists aren't even human.
