What the hell is a matter with a recommend a movie thread. There was no reason to delete it cause it was working out fine and more people were posting in it than any other thread. Please bring it back

I can assure you it wasn't personal. There's a very long-standing rule against list threads. It's CRZ's rule. It's CRZ's board. That's just how it works.

Though I will say that (pieman aside) the movie thread had some information that I found useful, and wasn't exactly just the same things being said again and again.

Maybe if the Mods aren't bothered by it, they should just let it sit and trust that Guru or Zed will definitely take care of it if they're bothered by it. (Like the One Hit Wonders thread).

Just reading your sig. Fuzzy.

Dubya actually SAID that? I've read quite a few stupid quotes from him, but, ......like, wow.....

But, that's what the Mods were chosen to do -- act in the absence of CRZ and Guru.

My reply started like this: "Yes, well, discretion is the better part of modding?"

And then I laughed.

-Jag

Mainly I just think we need less of, "This looks like a list thread" comments. Modding is a much easier job without people trying to get you to use your power to banish or ban. Because after that, if nothing happens it seems as if the mods are condoning that behavior, and then they are forced to take action even if the crime didn't fully merit it. Just because there are rules doesn't mean that we need to take on the role of enforcing them. We already have people that do that.

It's like when people post in a trolling thread to state that the person is trolling. Trust me, if it's that apparent to you that they're a troll, it's apparent to the mods as well.

Being a list guy, I am rather enjoying no lists in these forums. (Is my nose brown yet?)

Maybe a new room can be created like titled "The things that piss CRZ off room." That way the listers can sit back and list away.

In all seriousness, I can do without lists.

I don't want to go into a lot of detail about the way that we moderate, but since it came up and I've already banned someone for doing it today, I thought I should mention.

If you aren't a moderator, and you call for moderation, I'm going to ban your account for 24 and I've asked the mods to also do this.

The mods do a great job of keeping this place together when Chris and I can't watch it 24 x 7, and they do it for nothing. I can't say that I always agree with their choices, but I do far more often than I don't.

The thread in question was very close to a straight list thread, which would be automatic. I let it slide for a while, but I was about to close it when someone else did.

I probably should make an announcement about the moderation thing.

Yup -- last week, actually, IIRC.

That seemed to just come off more as a "F the rules I do what I want" response.

I compare The W to a membership at a health club or a country club, etc ...

Sure I'm able to join, but there are still rules I have to follow ... if I walked out of the men's changing room at my health club with my dong swinging around or took a big steamer on a treadmill, I'd be asked to leave and/or banned. Same principle here.

If I don't like the rules, I can go somewhere else. It's pretty simple.

Now I must block the mental image of myself taking a steamer on a treadmill.

Seeing how CRZ was the one who got rid of it, and it's sort of his board, I will tell you not to start another thread about this. It could result in you not posting anything here for a bit of time.

In fact, I'm closing this thread. All responses needed were given out five days ago, and it doesn't belong in Random anyway.

Why don't I just ban you now and save us both a headache later?
