That's almost word for word what I said on here many months ago. I advised people NOT to reply, NOT to acknowledged the vulgar comments that are offensive, and to just let the hogwash rotate in the orbit of the internet until a mod wandered over to take a look around from time to time...<quoted text>
AB I don't want to choose sides or join the fight but it really looks pretty obvious to me that if you would just TOTALLY ignore those people they would have to get bored and give up.
I know of at least three times where it was obvious that the mods came in this thread to stealthily clean things up on a daily basis. They kept it clear for a few weeks or more on every occasion... Then they abruptly stopped. Now the way I see it with using common logic, they probably realized that it was a waste of their time because of the taunting that was dished out toward the very people who were being labeled as the abusive ones. Why keep trying to keep it cordial in here once the people doing the complaining were the ones who then started to taunt the ones who'd had their content taken down?
You can't feasibly expect the mods to continue babysitting a thread when the same people who are requesting their help continue the taunting toward the users who they want to see reprimanded and/or banned.
It's not hard to police your fingers and keep yourself from replying to anything vulgar on here. If you can't help yourself, then use your fingers for placing feedback so they know that there is a comment that needs their attention.
Debate is one thing. Taunting is quite another, and quite childish as well.
I don't intend to be rude to a single one of you on here, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I just calls 'em like I see 'em. If we want to see this thread come back to life and get back on track, then we have to be the ones to keep it alive and on track. Maybe once that's accomplished, the regulars will come back and we can carry on with a thread that was so enjoyable at one time.
(Still residing in the land of the logical).
