I just tested it. You can block threads. Then they didn't show up for you. The blocked threads list doesn't appear to list the threads you've blocked.



What's the point of me blocking a thread filled with BS when everyone else can read it?

While this seemed like a reasonable response initially, with the offending party/parties free to start new threads with the same topic in which they are free to pursue their agenda of spreading the same "crap", it no longer solves the problem. It is like putting a band-aid on a bullet wound.

On a related note, if the parties involved are free to start new threads on the same topic, what about me? Exactly how many threads am I now restricted from? Half the board? A pentalty that has never been imposed on anyone else by the way. :/

As other issues arise, the mods will take care of it.

I am revoking mdawg's privileges to start new threads, unless prior permission is granted by me or OD.



As to 'Exact' restrictions on KewlJ: AIUI, he is not to start threads with the purpose of challenging MDawg's claims. A subjective test, yes, but KewlJ and the moderators know where the line in the sand is. Like judging Heat at blackjack, it's all about knowing what will be tolerated: EXACT restrictions are not written out there either.
An exact restriction has been placed on Mdawg, and I see he has already posted today. I'll deal with that in the appropriate thread.

So, I wonder what this is doing in the Hidden Threads thread?

Well, no actually, I don't wonder. I see it as a way for the 'Emperor' (a simile for Mdawg, I guess) To highlight his triumphant return from suspension. It would not get wide attention in his 'adventures' thread because, hey, that thread is hidden!. And he can't start a new thread because he just got a restriction placed on that!. So why not hijack this thread? I'll answer my own question.... Because he knows that hijacking threads is against the rules here, but couldn't resist.

I'll share that I chuckled as I watched the video of that pathetic, insane Emperor Caligula. I love how he did the big reveal of his treasure plundered from Neptune. Chests full of sea shells. For that chuckle, I'll restrict myself to rebuking Mdawg for the thread hijack.

He sure knows how to veil his insults. by metaphor. Bless him he was disappointed at his welcoming committee.

Quote: Caligula

"He had thought in his Divine Innocence that the streets would be lined with cheering crowds"..."had thought that the streets might be strewn with flowers"

Well, not even much from his fan club, by the look of it.

Fact is, wizard and I have done a bit of cleaning house while the Mdawg has been in the dog house. And standards of expected behaviour have been reconsidered.

It's nothing to do with blocked threads.
You block threads for yourself. We Hide threads from being prominent for everyone.

It ceases to be a problem to you but does not stop it being a resource to those who are interested in it.

WTH was that ChumpChange? some sort of retaliatory thread hijack? I already rebuked one member for that.

I have to admit that I enjoyed Mdawg's posting of the I, Claudius video. I was not familiar with I, Claudius -but that was one Hell of a monologue. It was infinitely more interesting than the rest of today's forum. Thank you MDawg for enriching my life.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.
