I don't know what you're talking about.

I mean what do you think about the chair that you sit in front of your computer in. Frankly mine could be more comfortable while I use it to watch paint dry. Weirdly it's not to bad when watching grass grow.

But ultimately I found that the delivery service left a lot to be desired for.

Sometimes I think I could have spent more money on it. But then other times I think I could have spent less money on it.

It's a moral dilemma.

That's a conversation adults have. For hours.

I for one welcome the change. The entire f*****g internet is chockas with people arguing over politics, your personal Twitter is a s****how.

Do you really need to vomit politics all over this place too? Enough to sook about it on other threads?

How about you JUST DON'T POST and/or sook about it instead?

Easier, and for bonus money its even what the owners and founders of the website want! They're free to make that choice, right?

for you to be impacted by somebody else's post in a topic clearly marked for the subject (and not offensive in any way just not to your content preference) requires your positive decision to click into that thread. other people were enjoying the discussion, no matter how boring or toxic you perceived it to be.

you sound like a kid in the playground saying I DONT LIKE SOCCER SO NO ONE CAN PLAY SOCCER.

im just getting back to the issue of there not being any activity. the one source of activity was killed off.

admins are free to choose actions on their forum. i am free to submit an alternative strategy unless that is banned too.

Sooking about the forum rules and content moderation has literally been banned for decades. I thought you were a lawyer and could read good? Anyway:
Don't complain about being moderated/nuked/deleted/banned. If you think you've been really harshly dealt with, please feel free to email contact us and explain why you think you've been hard done by. DO NOT EMAIL/MESSAGE INDIVIDUAL ADMINS. Frivolous, childish or silly emails will be ignored.

The rest of the post is your usual s***f*****y and straw men. WTF does posting political arguments on this ancient web 1.0 forum have to do with little lunch soccer you numpty?

I can't possibly understand why political discussion was moderated away, you and Pete post worthy material for this gaming website in good faith, even when you break the rules. Maybe email the admin team?

No but you did make a point of thanking trog for locking the politics thread when you came back.

The express justification for locking the thread was that it was scaring off users.

Seems pretty clear now that the justification rested on a faulty assumption.

In any case, I simply made a passing comment implying that the organic game discussion on the forum doesn't appear to be a big driver of engagement. As evidenced by the fact that the most active topic on the forum is the one about how there is no activity on the forum. Very meta.

Well I suppose I could comment in a Bitcoin thread. Except the internet is covered in sites dedicated to crypto currency run by people with far deeper knowledge and who sook less.

Is it really necessary to vomit about Bitcoin on this web 1.0 gaming website.

For someone complaining about sooking you sure do a lot of it.

Let's just revisit how you elected to enter this discussion. Remember infi didn't address you or ask for your input in any way.

The entire f*****g internet is chockas with people arguing over politics, your personal Twitter is a s****how.


A combo sook and personal attack out of the gates.

In any case please continue to demonstrate my point about the general interest levels in this place by proving
sooking in this thread is more important to you than a topic you self identified as important to you.

Just one post Peter, that's all I'm asking for. Just one!

the general interest levels in this place by proving
sooking in this thread is more important to you than a topic you self identified as important to you.

Did you notice the number of 'hey I'm alive guys!' posts after the politics s****how closed down in January? All the old names - going back decades? Do you guys realise that the thread was closed FIVE MONTHS AGO yet you still bring it up? Side note, its legit crazy to think the insurrection by right-wing extremists was nearly 6 months ago, feels much more recent.
For someone complaining about sooking you sure do a lot of it.

I'm replying to posters sooking about the closing of a thread in a thread that sooks about the forum itself, created by one of the biggest sooks I have encountered online! Bunch of sooks, all of you. STOP. SOOKING. ABOUT. IT.

Have you noticed how it is days and often weeks between responses in threads started by users and how general chat is almost entirely comprised of news spam? This thread is the most activity the place has had in months.

Hogfather. I'm not jumping through hoops for you. I wasn't talking to you. I was talking to infi and bargain. You decided you needed to bellyflop in here insult infi and whinge that we were having an unsanctioned conversation. It's unclear to me after that why youd think I'd inclined to go and hunt for link for you to read.

In any case imma leave you to it man.

Yeh but then the JUST DONT REPLY bit loses some of its linkage back to the 'JUST DONT CLICK' advice from infi.

Its a question of rhythm, cadence and timing.

Edit: Is it just me or is the internet full of right-wingers complaining that private organisations aren't letting them from doing their do anymore? Its even happening here. None of the local lefties complained about the loss of the politics thread, yet bargain infi and Peter are all here sooking about it nearly 6 months later.

I will click on any thread and not complain that it exists because I appreciate diversity of opinion. But no I'm not posting in a crypto thread because I am not basic.

I post in many threads both news and other discussion so shove it up ya jumper.

You are super duper acerbic, though.

Edit: Why you guys sooking on my crypto thread, anyway? It was on topic, there are lots of idle GPUs around here that could make their owners lazy coin. Is there something about my money printer that annoys you in particular? You both jumped on it for cheap shots so just checking.

Nobody else had a b**** about it, and it made for interesting discussion about that space and in particular its environmental impact. For now I'm assuming you guys are just frustrated and need something to hit out at. Maybe some juice is in order? Where's ya sippy cups..

Yeh but you did get into it, jumping onto Peter's bandwagon.

You shouldn't insult people and then back away when called out, it smacks of cowardice and low character.

For example: I called you a sook. I did that because you are sooking about forum moderation in this thread.

Why did you call me basic for posting about GPU mining? I'm a retired computer scientist and I found the whole thing fascinating to set up, learn about and understand. I shared my experiences to offer free money to gamers who have idle GPU power. I was offering my expertise and knowledge to other forum users.

Once the mining dies down again I plan to start a research project to harness massively distributed GPU computational power for worthwhile endeavours beyond solving fake crypto problems for internet money.

What's basic here?

Baiting fpot is very constructive from my point of view. I got a good chuckle out of it. Generally living in a free society means we don't need to worry if puritanical Church ladies have a problem with what we say because we can generally walk away, or even better, not read it on a forum.
