The site is looking better than ever. Of course the haggis threads are getting silly and the obvious left/right bum fights are verging on the pathetic (I must avoid the two threads) but as someone said, we must be expected to exercise some personal restraint or moderation.

"Haggis threads" are - generally speaking - reasonably popular. There are half a dozen currently on the front page with 100-1000 replies, and another four or five with over 1000 replies.

Dale/Vino/Tuff Gong/Joe threads, by contrast, are not popular. If those cunts leave me alone (or all suddenly dropped dead), I'll just consistently make threads on all sorts of random topics, and most of those threads will lead to some good discussion.

Whereas if I leave these moron cunts alone, they will......... start zero threads and generate zero discussions. But they WILL follow me around the forum, spamming the fuck out of every single thread that I start and most threads that I appear in. :patsch

I meant the 400 threads posted by aliases, not ‘your’ threads. I should have explained myself clearer.

The Trump thread has become a cesspit and all parties are guilty. You have that clown MW just posting tweet after meme after tweet and others saying how fat Trump and his supporters are.

Maybe a truce needs to be made, where anti-Trumpists stay out of that thread, and Trumpophiles stay out of the Democratic Part Nomination 2020 thread. Yeah, it sounds extreme and flies in the face of free speech but things may be a whole lot better around here, starting with less derailing of the good threads?

Just a thought.

MW, myself and all the Trump haters are in the "Democratic nominee" thread. Vino, Joe and Dale aren't, for some reason.

Look at the difference in quality between the two threads. There's your answer about where the problem is, right there.

Never, EVER going to work. Because this shit is EXACTLY what they are here FOR. They aren't interested in doing anything else.

They don't start threads. They don't join discussions. They don't add anything funny to the picture thread, they don't link any articles in the Insane SJW thread, and they point blank will NOT talk about the Trump admin in the "Trump" thread. Not at all.

Laughing their asses off, cheering and throwing likes around in the 30th mindless, forum-ruining "Haggis!" spam thread? Of course. Running into every single thread I start, to try to ruin it for everyone for no reason except they're moron cunts? Absolutely. Stinking up the eerie/creepy thread for pages on end with mindless babble about waaaah, Haggis? Sure! Just throwing shit at Jonestown if I'm not around? Certainly.

Starting or getting involved in on-topic discussions, or linking interesting content to the forum, or doing anything other than spew bile and stroke each other's cocks? You must be fucking kidding. Show me how I'm wrong. :sad

Measuring your worth by the number of posts in your threads, again, Rudder? 12,440 and still going strong.

Literally everyone who isn't directly involved in this little teenage girl shit fight is absolutely sick of it from all sides. It's painfully fucking boring and it's shocking to me that not one of you fucking idiots seem to know how the ignore function works.

I have fucking dozens of those stupid haggis alts on ignore. If everyone who was sick of this bullshit put you muppets on ignore then you may as well all fuck off and start your own forum just for bickering back and forth with haggis like a fucking child.

I don't try to derail their fucking threads. I talk about all sorts of shit on here, that's what I'd rather be doing. When's the last time you saw these cunts do anything at all other than troll and stink the place up?

Because when it's not 'Haggis' related, the rest of you are normally alright and decent posters to interact with. The same as Haggis generally offers some decent content and is great for creating discussions and topics that everyone can get invested in. I know you lot don't like him, I know he doesn't like you. But that is literally affecting every thread one of you interact in. It makes the forum shit. It's impacting the enjoyment of large parts of the forum's memberbase, especially the loungers. This means that the management team can either ignore it, or we have to get involved - if so, how? No one wants to ban anyone, but the idea that a poster could be driven off the board over this is unacceptable to me.

I know you want him gone, have convinced yourselves that you'll be doing the world/forum a favour, but the site will probably die if Haggis disappears. When he took a break the thread creations and posts dropped massively. That's purely from a management/stats point of view. Like him or not, he puts more effort into content creation on the lounge than any other poster. Probably more than the vast majority put together. Not every thread is great/interesting, but a large amount get good traction/discussion. That and he's not actually a bad guy - he has his annoying moments, but he's just like you lot, regular guys posting on an internet forum.

The entire feud is fucking moronic. It needs to end, a truce be called or something to stop every single fucking thread derailed into the shittiest bickering and insults. You all look stupid for it - you, haggis, dale, tg, vino etc. None of us find it funny or enjoy reading it. And the mod/admin team can't be arsed to go through each thread deleting the bickering posts from all of you, we have better things to do.

You might not derail their threads, but you've derailed plenty of your own threads by randomly mentioning them and telling us all how useless and infantile they are. You're as much to blame as they are for contributing to this bullshit. And I (nor anyone else) gives a fuck who started it, or who you think started it, you are all perpetuating it.

The mod team has let it go on for far too long. Like years too long. The hands off approach works for the most part and I'm sure many of the members here appreciate it, but this insidious bickering bullshit has escalated far beyond what should have been allowed. Put them all on forced ignore, and if that's not an option of if any of them circumvents it, issue a temp ban. A week or two. If they continue or start making alts then IP ban them and be fucking done with it. I know management might not want to lose such valuable contributors, but I can just about guarantee you've already lost members due to this continued farce.

I fucking am not "as much to blame."

If those three or four cunts all die tomorrow, I'll go right on making random threads, linking to content and participating in discussions.

If I die tomorrow, these cunts will switch to nonstop babbling shit at Johnstown or some other prickly, confrontational poster that they haven't driven off the boards yet.

That's the fucking difference. This infantile bullshit is infuriating to me. For them, it's what they're here for and they think it's hilarious. It's not the fucking same. :bart
