Wait.. what if we made it so TVTropes links still went to TVTropes, but they chose a different trope to link to at random. Most posters would never notice because no one clicks them, but it would drive Herald crazy because a link showing how someone is a no good buddy bear will all of a sudden go to a trope about japanese schoolgirl panties or something.

Are you trying to turn him on? That reads like Herald fanfic.

I actually click on the tropes links when I see them and usually end up reading a bunch of the linked ones. Call me crazy.

No, this reads like Herald fanfic:

"You look nice today," said Billy Buddy Bear to Bobby Buddy Bear.

"Thanks," Bobby Buddy Bear replied.

They embraced. Billy Buddy Bear's clawed, stubby hand pressed against Bobby Buddy Bear's furry back. He slid it downward, touching Bobby Buddy Bear's butt.

"Ooooh," said Bobby Buddy Bear.

Billy Buddy Bear grabbed the soft flesh of Bobby Buddy Bear's bottom and squeezed. He could feel the muscles in Bobby Buddy Bear's butt clench.

"Don't be nervous," Billy Buddy Bear told him. "We are the Buddy Bears. We always get along."

etc.

Fine, first its herald and nac, and draco - after them who is the most annoying poster, won't tehy automatically be the most annoying at that point?

How many threads of what length with 5 posters repeating themselves before are "discussing" "banning" "doing something about" Schlemer (whose NSFW threads have caused more actual mawding actions than herald, nac, and drao combined [~2])

if you, or anyone else wants that level of active modding, there are plenty of places that will do that - CBR, Bryne's boards, and that MLP forum I po... - but the mawds here, at least since I started posting, have always said that they/we are passive mawds. If people want action find us an actual reason besides "there are so many ways I can ignore these people but I'm too cool for school to report or ignore" or whatever veration this thread is about.

The TOS is something that not only users have to adhere to inorder to remain posters, but the mawds and admins have to abide by them as well or we lose whatever semblance of respect the borad pretends to have.

Punchy used to spoil books in his thread titles, this pissed me off, I reported one. The title was changed at the request (or action I do not remember) of a mawd and for all of Punchy's bluster (as far as I know) he never outright spoiled a book again.

You want something to happen, give us an actual reason besides your neighbor's tree branch fell on your side of the fence.

Or, you know, we could keep talking about them as if they are not here and get a bunch of people together to vote them off the island.
in other words, you know this is bullying, right?

I've had Nac on ignore for ages and I love it and as previously posted I just haven't gotten around to doing that to Herald. I'd love it if they were just gone for good and banning sounds lovely.

But is the answer really banning or ignoring them? Why is it on us? Why is it not on them?

They see this thread and others similar calling on the behavior. You'd think they'd realize that they only spur negative attention and would want to change the crappy perception that so many of us have of them.


And yet you still b!tch about me.

Hence the irony: I've actually been spending less time here recently, and yet some of you are whining about me all the more. Would a reversal on my end reverse such discussion about me as well?? Hmmm...
