I think kami is way too srs.

Yes, frankly, this IS the kind of "infantile" behavior that you will have to overlook here, and indeed on ANY forum, if you've ever been to one. This isn't even the worst of it, not even close. If you can't stand someone disagreeing with you then you won't last long here.

Calling each other morons doesn't really advance the debate much, just FYI.

Kiwi, don't even threaten to leave. I'd chase you down.


One thing is disagreeing with me, the other is blatantly saying you haven't read the thread and that you're just talking out of your ass to troll. "UMAD" caption included. I think I am fully entitled to tell her she looks like a moron.

I get the message though. It's that you're looking out for your friends and that nepotism is common in forums. Amirite? :lol2:

Nepotism? Looking out for my friends? You do realize that I was addressing both of you when I talked about "calling each other morons," right? I hardly see how I am displaying any favoritism here or how nepotism has anything to do with it.

Ehh, I'm done toying with his stupid ass. It's boring now~

You were arguing on the validity of something you never bothered to read.

Uh huh. "u wont last long here if u think blatant trolling and brony spam in debate forums is stupid".
It's OK. Very few people in the world are good moderators. ;)

Your reading ability is very low for someone who likes to use long words. It is perfectly clear that Nymh was saying the behaviour is common, and to be expected. Not that it wasn't both stupid, and unacceptable.

So let's not go slinging absurd accusations about moderating ability around.

Clear?

She both presented Kiwi's points as a mere disagreement ("if you can't stand people disagreeing with you") and implied my ephemeral stay over it ("you won't last long here"). Went so far as to put "infantile" within quotations marks as if implying that such behaviour wasn't truly infantile.

If her point is that every debate forum is a trollfest of a /b/ variety... well.

Yeah, that's much better.

I don't think it's worth rephrasing it for you again.

I said "infantile" because it is irrelevant. She got frustrated at debating with a robot. While I don't agree with what she did, it wasn't against the rules, and it is not my job as a moderator (however poorly you think I perform in my responsibilities) to micromanage debates. I stepped in to add my thoughts, not to defend her or anyone.

That's not how friendship really works.
Real friends don't offer false reassurance.

One guy makes an obnoxious, incorrect, but otherwise well written post.

Other members respond with negative reps and poorly reasoned rebuttals.

This is why we can't have nice things.


What's wrong with downvoting obnoxious posts? kami12 isn't the first obnoxious person to receive such a response.

This is the debate section. If you can't disagree with your words, leave.

A few of his earlier posts I've been able to read come across as condescending/borderline disrespectful. I think Kiwi mentioned that earlier. I agree with being able to debate, as long as the participants don't start taking snide jabs at each other.

(I'm making the assumption that people only negative repped those)

Not trying to poke fun at it but it is related to the topic at hand.
