I was just looking at this thread and my antivirus comes up with a notice and map that said "Your location is exposed! Please Resolve!"
It's the first time I've seen that particular notice from my AV, but they want me to buy a VPN because Internet Providers are selling data now.
Is it normal for this website to ping my location data?
I still have a computer that remains unfunctional after the last thing it did was post on this website.

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.



Thats exactly what happened when she was the leading vote getter in the Who Should Be The Next Mod? poll.

The jury is still out on whether OD has done a better job than Nathan would’ve.

The Supreme Court says that Corporations have certain unalienable rights.
Doesn't it follow that "websites" should have similar rights, yet no one here has thought to ask it's opinion.

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.



Whatever, the Chinese have no defense against their censors either. It is obvious by the poll numbers that most don't see it the Chair/wo/man's way. When are we going to get our social credit rating buttons?
#1 allows for a free market. If something is suspendable under the rules, then do it.

Yeah, but what's the margin of error?

Plus or minus an Electoral College.

You must be monitoring the wrong Jury. That verdict has been reached long ago. It would be fairly hard to be worst than the WMOAT.
