Hey, feel free to lock/delete this but I just want you staff to know that I think you're all doing great, and I appreciate what you do even though I may not always be the easiest poster do handle.

You've all taken a beating lately, but I'm proud of all of you.

Have a good day.

This morning I had a thought that I would like to share.  I'm not suggesting any particular mod actions; this is more just food for thought.

I think a major source of nastiness on this site is treating discussion of a disagreement as some sort of a verbal battle instead of as a shared search for truth and knowledge.  Political topics are especially prone to this, but it happens on other threads as well.  I think threads would go a lot smoother if all participants took responsibility for becoming informed on the topic under discussion and trying to understand others' positions and questioning their own positions, with the ultimate goal of either (1) reaching agreement on the disputed matter after carefully considering evidence and reasoning or (2) coming to the conclusion that both positions have some merit due to factual uncertainties or differently weighing competing values.

I know this can be difficult in practice, but I think even just making a good-faith effort to strive toward this goal would help make things a lot smoother.

Please do not bring any prior drama into this thread.  (If you want to use an example to illustrate a point, don't use something that happened on this site.  Perhaps use a hypothetical instead.)

I asked some stupid question once and Tracer gave me a LMGTFY link and it was fucking hilarious.

What search terms to use can be legitimately important in finding right result, plus if i remember right, it did actually run the search for me too.  (Its the only time i've seen it so cud be rememberinh wrong)  so it's legitimate even if a tad sarcastic.

>It is perfectly reasonable when presented a disagreeable assertion to request that the person putting forth that assertion provide more information.  
>It's also reasonable not to provide more information if you really don't want to!  Like legitimately maybe you don't want to talk about it, that's fine

Hmmm this seems particularly reasonable to a lost pony.

Especially when, for example you're at work and are able to engage on the topic of how sexy dragons are, but don't really have the focus required to explain or lookup basic physiology.  *cough hypothetically.

It's definitely sarcastic, but, I've always thought of it as a tad tongue in cheek, than 'rude'.
And like you said, it is fulfilling the rule of question-asking.

I dunno. I guess I'm a tad thicker skinned around it. It's something of an old-internet item, anyway.

Perhaps a tad too thick, like dragon scale.

Wheat just started a thread about a very specific topic with no links at all and some are asking questions and others are pulling up links to foster sharing knowledge.  Seems an example of what OP is wishing for.

So, Iara was just banned on /pony/ for one of her silly bandwagon threads.

Sorry if this seems like putting extra pressure on the mods, but could we modify that ban notification to cite and show what reason Iara was banned?

Sorry about that, I should've posted alongside it.

This was their ban message if it helps any though:

"You were warned earlier about infractions to rules 7 and 8.  You then posted "I wasn't planning on deleting my thread tho. I wanted to keep it around because I love being provocative. In all senses." afterwards.  You then posted a thread to try and continue being mean to people, ironically or not that's against the rules.  You are now being banned for 4 hours due to breaking 5, 7, and 8.  We ask that you please stop breaking the rules and be nicer to others. Thank you. -!!Rainbow Dash"


Gonna be bluntly honest: I think my ban was stupid.
I should have been warned/banned for the first thread I made. THe second thread was just a dumb meme bandwagon, that was all made in comedy.

The first one I got a warning on WAS pretty rude tho, and I would have accepted nothing less than a ban from that one.

I mean, we can scrap the whole site and solve a lot of problems that way too! But I mean, at this point it's probably fine since I doubt anyone even uses Netherlands theme anymore. And if so, they don't need special banners.

Still, I made those silly nl banners and they'll be missed. Stroopwafel.

I wasn't sure where else to put these, but a while ago Moony commissioned me for some banners, and I only saw one in rotation.

And also because life ran me over, but I finished the other ones today!

As posted in a thread:

>>808539 (You)
That has nothing to do with any other thread Moony, that's teasing Manley for saying his toaster told him stuff.  

This reminds me, i wondered why my image of Pinky in a diaper was quietly deleted in that thread the other night without comment when 1) you discussed Noomy's image a great deal before deleting it and 2) artee posts pinky in a diaper all the time and it's not a problem.  Theres nothing sexual about the image i posted (in fact the opposite) and i see a much more fetishy pet-play Sonata than Noom's image posted all the time here and no one objects.  I think you know the Sonata on a leash image and artee's diapered pinky images im talking about.

I don't see how joking Manley about his phrasing of this OP, or the images that got deleted the other night are any different than a lot of what goes on around here and i'm not making a big deal out of it, i just want to point this out as inconsistent moderation since you bring it up.

It was just good clean fun and i think you're reading too much into it.

1.  Dark Knight doesn't have Superman in it,
2.  I didn't call Manley a furry.  
3.  Why so serious my friend?

It happened with shoe-fitting fluoroscopes and is happening with cigarettes.  Current research strongly indicates that overconsumption of sugar and other highly refined carbs is the main culprit behind the obesity epidemic.  Eventually, as the public becomes aware of this, countries will take measures to curtail consumption of sugar (and other highly refined carbs). (And those countries that don't will be weeded out by natural selection.)

>and those countries that don't will be weeded out

You sounded great right until that line. I don't know what kind of world you think we live in, but countries typically aren't ended by their inability to regulate addictive substances.

Actually that is something that will likely happen.

Cutting out extra sugars, exercising and quitting smoking and drinking in moderation can add around 20 years of lifespan. If people are smart, they will realize eventually that current eating habits are very wack.

Okay, this is hack, but it solves the problem: At the beginning of each
, insert the following:

   <div style="font-size: 1px">
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:250px;"></span>

and at the end of each
, insert this:

   <div style="font-size: 1px">
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>
     <span style="display:inline-block; min-width:230px;"></span>

This will force the text below the image when there's not at least 250px of space to the right of the image.  The div of three spans at the end is needed to avoid bad things happening especially with embedded YouTube videos.

>I am putting in 12 hour days at work
Oy vey, that's horrible!  Reminds me of crunch time in grad school before a conference deadline.  And those deadlines were often like 5:00 AM local time, and sometimes I was working literally minutes before the deadline.  Unpleasant.


Yeah, it's total shit. It is not usually this bad, but I always have one such project like this per year where I burn the candle from both ends and probably trim some years off the tail end of my life from stress.

On the bright side it can be nice to work when nobody else is in the office. Take my shoes off, turn the thermostat down, take mobile game and internet breaks liberally, sing loudly and stomp my feet. It's too bad there is ever anyone else in the office to begin with!

Moony you promised Manley and myself a solid one-week ban if we squabbled again after the 12 hour ban.

In the Avengers movie thread he gaybashed me remorselessly for commenting that my gf and i both found a character to be hot in the middle of my post, told me to take the gay elsewhere n got into a long repetitive creepy obsession about how my gay makes him uncomfortable.  He also claims he's fine with gay "because he has gay friends" but then admits he finds my gay uncomfortable because he's been hit on by a gay person once and because he feels that was an attempt to "convert him to gay".  Which to me says that he's uncomfortable with me because, i guess he feels i want to have sex with him?!  Its disgustingly offensive to me and while i took several multiple-hour long breaks each time i looked back in i found the discussion going on and on with my name being discussed constantly.

I lost my cool a bit and reacted, yes.  I also had a really dark deconstructive mood that significantly negatively impacted me irl.

Zeke rightly called us both on squabbling like children.  It's an experience that brought me back to the worst moments of my childhood, and manley stated that he did nothing wrong.

My favorite tidbit is that he's tried not to talk to me but i won't stop, when in fact my original reply was to ukp and not even to Manley at all.  He contacted me first to tell me to take my "gay" elsewhere such as seeking naked pics of the character's actor (eew).  Unless perhaps i'm not allowed to discuss the op with other posters just because he started the thread, but thats not the way it's supposed to work.

Theres a lot of talk about the manley problem and the difficulty in knowing what to do about it but this makes no sense to me.  He's a chronic breaker of the basic rules and ignores all mod input that he's doing so.  Hes being rewarded by getting away with this time after time after time so it's no wonder this problem won't go away.

Lack of proper response to his violation of the rules is not only allowing disruption to this site and the wellbeing of its members, it is directly hurting Manley in real life by conditioning bad behavior that could harm his rl relationships or even get him beat up or killed.

My behavior was not golden either.

I'm odd like that.

Has my ban expired?  I never got the block notice and I am not sure exactly when the prescribed one-week ban was applied.  I don't see Manley posting yet so I don't know if it's ok for me to post again or not.

please some mod let me know, thanks.

It was a looong week; I want to come home now pls.


Yeah, you are fine. Your ban expired on Sunday.

Whatever IP you are posting on now was never even banned. It was some other IP, maybe a wifi your phone was connected to? So, don't be surprised if you see the ban message whenever you try to post from that location. It'll say the ban already expired and you'll be clear to post.


Its always this fone (on its own network) or my computer at work.  I guess my fone switches ip at will.

Thanks for always being so kind to me, Thorax.

This other anon's thread >>>/pony/827659 was locked.  I understand one reason for locking it (it sure seems like political shitposting to me), but I would like clarification on a point.  A stated reason for locking the thread is "Normalizing Nazi iconography isn't acceptable".  But I see nowhere in the existing or newly proposed rules any indication that the 'normalization' of the iconography of certain political ideologies is verboten per se.  Is all casual use of symbols exclusively associated with any violent extremist groups (such as Nazis, ISIS, and Antifa) forbidden?  What about symbols of violent street gangs?  It seems like this should be its own rule, if it is to be enforced as such by the mod team.

it also wouldn't be a hate crime, unless you intended to send a message to a minority or something, in which case if a similar thread was made here it would be taken down for the same "slur" reason, as per the current rules.

Hmm, I still don't see how a picture of a noose can be considered a "slur".  It (the picture of the noose) is not a word, and furthermore it's more of a threat than an insult or disparagement.

Yeah a swastika (when used in reference to Nazis rather than as a symbol of peace- that is, not tilted sideways slightly-) isn't a slur.

It's more or less an implied threat, I guess. That would be the closest you could really get to it.

But slur is simply incorrect. Slurs are verbal, they are words. Slurs are not symbols. Unless you're talking music. Then slurs are a musical symbol. But that's not the same.
