Yeah, I can't find Nathan's Corner thread at all. This is some straight up commie censorship BS.

My prediction: This poll will heavily be in support of Nathan being reinstated. I'm fairly sure most of those votes will be cast for the wrong reasons. Yet, Nathan will think, they all love me so much.

I cast my vote for exactly the wrong reason.
With the corner being MIA I don't know where to post profound thoughts about everything on the Taco Bell menu tasting exactly the same.

Sure you can. Just look in your own posts in the last 24 hours and click on one that says Nathan. The OP in this thread named it the same as the re-name, so just don't click on today's of yours.

Bottom line, what's been done is censorship. Not that we haven't seen that before....lol

The ability to stay even tempered in the face of insults is the sign of a good forum member, or good citizen, however you wish to look at it. The ability to stay even tempered at all times is the sign of a good Mod. beachbumbabs seems to be such a Mod.

I think Nathan was removed for hurling invective once too often, no? Or was it just for repeated profanity?

I don't think it was for appearing as a repeated sock puppet; I asked about that though and noted various theories.


I think it all comes down to a bit of a Taoist / "Groundhog Day" thing - we need to go through it more than once before we learn. Nathan might have learned by now, which might be a reason to have her back. Or maybe in a year, after which she would have learned even more, we might presume.

As I formerly wasn't aware of the significance of Nathan's writings, then perhaps the OP of this thread can be appointed executor of the Nathan archive. Probably requires translation into 7 languages and voluminous footnotes.

Well yes, that's another way to look at it, as in "Who cares?" but given that we are all here posting today, we do care in some way or other about this issue, or at least about the forum in general.

Bottom line, I had 3 choices.

1. Give out about 4 suspensions for trolling.

2. Close the thread, which could perhaps be censorship in a twisted way.

3. Take the thread out of the recent posts lists but leave it alone otherwise. Which I did, as the least impact to the forum and members otherwise in good standing.

You're confusing serving up impulse-trolling and escalation of bad feelings on purpose by featuring it, for censorship. Those that care to beat a dead horse topic, as it appears you want to, can still do it. For now, anyway. If it continues to draw flies and stink, I will close it, along with this protest thread. I would prefer to move past all of it once people have had their say, which it seems like they already had and were just on repeat, but I guess we aren't there yet.

Good. We need MORE censorship in this forum. There's too much obvious trolling and B.S. high school drama going on.
