Title: Ichimaru Gin is a sourpuss
Post by: The Knowledge on May 17, 2012, 10:24:42 AM
It's one thing warning about low content. It's another thing to needlessly remove the low content post - most of the time they're left in place unless they are offensive. Make Ichi lighten up a bit.

Needlessly remove... Low content... Why should low content posts stay? They don't add anything to discussion and are a distraction. Make ichi do this more often.

It's inconsistent with other mod's behaviour. Either remove every low content post or remove none of them. Not arbitrarily remove some of them. Anyway it was a funny post which I put a modicum of effort into.

This not a comedy club, it's serious business.

This cannot be true. If you put effort in, its not low-content. It may have been off topic,  but that's not what you are whinging about.

It also could not possibly have been funny.

Ahh Particle Person, I was suckering him in. The punch line was to come later.

I have ruined the entire thread. Let's start over.

There will be other threads. I may be able to best "the knowledge" in one of those.

It was an amusing picture of something with Wilmore's head and details superimposed on it, and it was relevant to a low content post already placed there by John Davis.

Do not mock me knowledge. I have no time for your frontline advertising and no time for your sourpuss accusations.

If you ask me, actually moderating (deleting and moving things) is far preferable to spamming threads with low-content posts about low-content posting. I'm looking at you, markjo.

It was probably removed because, like all your posts, it was offensive to any thinking person.

Did you find it offensive? Did you even see it or are you just saying that because it was something I posted and you're prejudiced?

Just repost it in CN or AR.

I can't wait to see how funny it is. I am going to go turn on my computer so I can see the post on a bigger screen.

No, I didn't see it. In fact, this is the one recorded instance where the Zetetic Method is not relevant, as it simply follows from you making a post that it is awful. No empirical data required.

So nothing to do with the shape of the Earth?  Isn't that a round about ad hominem?

Not even a little bit.

Guys, you only get to invoke your shiny latin fallacies when someone is trying to present a logical proposition. A defaced avatar is not an argument.

It is kind of rubbish though. Maximum lame. I mean, he's already done the standard newb 'put LW in your avatar' move. This is just sinking to a level that nobody here wants to see. Time for The Knowledge to be less of a newb methinks. This is not Never Never Land.

What has this degenerated to? No one believes for a moment that The Knowledge was "funny" and I use that in the loosest definition of the word. If I am wrong, then please, show me otherwise.

He's funny when he's mad and uptight about every little thing.

But what if Thork did it? "Oh Thork, you put a peanut in my nose. You card!" Eh? Am I right or am I right or am I right?

I agree, I'd like to see this done more often.

You do realise that saying this may well come and bite you on the behind one day? Next time you claim to judge everything fairly and on its own terms, the example of you complaining about a joke image you never even saw will be held up in your face.
