I'll bring this up again: Considering that there is an unspoken limit on how malicious a personal attack can be in Dumb Threads, I propose that the thread about Teger be squirrelled because it is nothing but a venue for attacks against a specific member. Maybe the intention by mordecai, who started the thread, is not mean-spirited but it certainly has turned that way and will always be a platform for such while it exists.
I'm going to vehemently disagree with this. If the precedent is deleting a thread because it has the potential to become mean are we going to ban douche of the year contest? I can understand getting rid of a thread when it crosses the line of nastiness, I don't think that one has. The point of that thread was to show some of the knucklehead things Teger says time from time. It was poking fun at his immaturity. If a poster crosses that line just delete that offending post and punish the poster if it is called for. If anyone crossed the line in that thread it was Teger.
See, I've drawn the line when there was a thread dedicated to the disparagement of one person, but then also to me it got kind of nasty even by the person who is the brunt of the thread.
You know, fuck it.
