    So I take it that my thread called "Why are black people so lazy and criminally inclined; an honest debate" wouldn't be popular? I'll have to stick with the one I'm preparing about "Why can't I call faggots; faggots while faggots can call faggots; faggots?"

    All this time and I never knew you were Swiss . . .










    Joking, lakewolf, joking . . .

    I feel this post is a personal attack on me, but I am taking your message to heart and am not going to report it. This time. But I'm watching you.

    1. Before reporting a post, gauge whether something is appropriate given the general tenor of the forum, not whether you find it personally offensive. For example, today, someone reported posts asking me to take down posts that broke the Commandment to "Not Take the Lord's Name in Vain." Dear member: "You evidently forgot that you were logged into Styleforum, not The 'Evangelical Bible Study forum'". 2. Don't come awhining that you are being picked on when you so very clearly deserve it. No, we do not condone bullying, and when someone goes out of their way to be a dick, I am not hesistant to use the ban-hammer. However, if you invite barbs from a lot of posters, maybe you ought to examine your own online behavior. Here is a pretty good guideline: If it would sound stupid/vain/pretentious in real life, it will come off doubly so over the net. 3. Do not bother reporting trivial crap. Today, someone reported a signature that they said was a personal attack on him. It wasn't. It was a comment on an attack on one of his posts. We are not babysitters. You are by-and-large grown men. Behave as such.
    It seems like a good rule of thumb would be think three times before reporting a post, and then if you still think you should report it, think three more times. Repeat as necessary.

    I'm sorry, but what you're doing is not working.
    So what do you propose?

    Goodbye fashionist. You ignore my requests, you spam up my board, you post pics that are tiny, you aren't interested in discussing things in your own threads, and you can't even give the courtesy of a link back to us.

    Good luck.

    Either ban Artisan Fan and get it done with or stop the sporadic enforcement. It's clearly done absolutely nothing to stop that kind of bullshit (from several more people than just AF) for more than a day.

    Do people actually report stuff other than spam??? I mean, I've dished out and taken some smack in my day, but I'd never think of whining to a mod about it.

    Everybody who has ever reported anything other than spam needs to grow some balls on the double.

    An embargo on AF from posting in the CEsspool would do. Sort of like how amerikajinda isn't allowed to post in girls-related threads.

    Take a look at this post here. Looks like someone is trying to draw attention to his thread by posting a million keywords in white to get higher on google or something...
    Against the rules? Or just weird and obnoxious?

    I think AF is the most harmless of the CE posters. Manton's posts are positively Machiavellian, iammatt's are charmingly snarky, but AF is the Fashion TC of politics (and audio): he clearly isn't firing on all cylinders, he parrots (what he thinks is) received wisdom, and he never learns.

    It would be like an embargo on me from posting in threads about cats.

    In AF's defense, he really does seem like a good-natured person who means no harm. Even if his posts sometimes may be offensive.
