    Why is this kind of thread not allowed, but threads with false claims of having superpowers are allowed?


    http://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/worlds-biggest-thank-you-thread-2-0.878424/

    Is there something going on behind the scenes lately, It feels like there currently is an atmosphere of stressed out, panicking and uprightness about something on BHW. Because somewhat related to this, I have not seen a big deal about off topic comments in a thread until the past few days.

    That thread got closed because it was soliciting thanks, nothing more sinister than that.

    Does there?

    How can we help you feel more at ease?

    Dunno about this one. I, personally, shut a lot of threads down or clean them up because of hijacking and off-topic bickering.

    If there's something in particular that's an issue, either post it here or PM me if you want.

    Specifics I can work with. Emotions... tend to make me back away slowly and calmly then run like hell once I'm out of range.

    Oh I remember you @Capo Dei Capi...

    You're the guy that said the forum was going to "mainstream" because I warned a guy for telling someone to jump off a bridge.

    If you go on any other forum the lounge is normally full of "let's count to 1000" or "do you like the person above" types of things, they are total crap. They are a waste of time for those that read them, post in them or have to moderate them.

    That's why I shut the thread. I'm sorry that you see this as some sort of oppression, I'm trying to keep the good content at the top and sink the crap content, so you all have a better experience while you spend time here.

    Man, you oppress me all the time and I never get an apology.


    I thought we were an anarchosyndicalist commune, what is this self-perpetuating autocracy nonsense?

    Omg. I am so offended.

    I'm going to create a suggestion thread talking about how I think the mods are doing a piss poor job bc they allow comments like this, but they get rid of comments that show a lack of respect for fellow human beings.

    I try my best to stay cynical and mean but sometimes the flowers and compliments can thaw my cold, dead heart. I'll try harder next time.

    You're my role model, AI - I'll always love you xx

    I remember watching South Park back in the days. Even skipped school a few times, thinking I was a badass guy like Cartman :D :D :D

    I don't think the guy actually was serious about wanting someone to kill themselves, it looked like a normal joke. But that seems to be taboo in today's internet.

    So I can make a thread claiming I can fly because of some power I have, but not make a thread about record thanks?

    Omg, why would you post something like that without a trigger warning? I may never recover...

    Yep. And you can also make a thread about record thanks . But if you make a thread asking for thanks, it'll probably get shut.

    Not for any deep and meaningful reason other than we see way too many of them get posted and they're boring. Superpowers - less boring.

    We clearly have different moral compasses, I don't think it's ever acceptable to tell anyone to kill themselves. I certainly would not call it a normal joke.... That's an incredible statement to make.

    You can make all the threads you want, just make them entertaining and not a complete waste of time.

    Go and find me a pewep thread with less than 30 replies, while some of them are kind of boring the majority of them are funny. People enjoy them.

    People do not enjoy threads designed to boost ego's via falsely inflating internet points on a forum. Like I said it's a complete waste of time for everyone involved.

    If the first 3 pages of the lounge were constantly crappy threads like the one I shut are you saying the forum would be better? I disagree.

    Agreed, we can troll the shit out of superpower threads, I couldn't think of one funny thing to say about the dumb thanks thread. More importantly even @Ste Fishkin or @mickyfu didn't have anything hilariously troll like to say!

    You can't just drop comedic bombs like I do on just any thread.
