Just imagine if I decided to shove every political slapfight thread into one. Where the hell would I find a rug big enough to sweep that under?

The problem with most of what I'm seeing both in this thread and about the attempt to dismiss this on cbr is that someone thinks b/c they volunteer they suddenly have no bias. (something that's hard to swallow when you have a dc themed avatar :lol: )


Edit: and looking at the mighty thread, it's confusing as hell, I wouldn't jump into that. So the only thing they accomplished was creating a segregation of people that want to complain about DC (despite letting one or two other threads live). You can't create one thread to complain about an entire line of 52, no, more than that after relaunches, books, with a variety of creators on those books, with often different problems. You don't have to get a paycheck from warners to be a fanboy or push your own opinions off on a board your moderate.

Asking board mods, admins, or writers to not display any kind of bias or fanboyism in how they run a site is asking a lot.

Dark Paw and the Meanos find this amusing in a sense even though it makes no sense from their point of view.

I don't think so, that's what being in charge of that sort of thing is about. Personally, they can support and do whatever they love, but if they can't set it aside to do the job they volunteered for, then they should quit.

Nobody is saying this person couldn't take part against these threads shooting down someone's complaints with his own arguments, write up his own articles about how much he loves dc, etc., but the minute you start deleting threads and changing rules to follow your own vision, then it's something different. And if it's not just his vision, then the article, speaking about CBR as a whole, since the buck stops with them anyways, is ultimately responsible and they are combining threads not to help posters, but to help whatever vision they want to create.

But we deal with it here, I work with these guys writing stuff on the front page everyday and people that say we have a grudge against DC are fucking idiots, to put it simply. We are doing the same before as we do now, any extra attention dc gets is their own doing by the stories the provide, but we get snarky about everything and everyone and we also have no problem writing about it when they do something right. Now, you don't have to believe that, many people don't. I guess it depends on how much you think outside of your fanboyism b/c most people that have issue are dc fanboys who get butthurt or people from other sites that are insecure and want to try and diminish someone else's work.

Let's flip it though, do we tell people in the forum they have to only praise DC in one megathread? If you want to give any DC book a positive review, praise a creator, or a decision, etc. you have to do it in this one 4K post megathread. If you want to talk about how awesome superman unchained is that just came out, too damn bad, it's a duplicate post b/c it's just like talking about how you liked Batman a year ago.

They've created an agenda in their modding to control the speech of the forum, and the agenda doesn't have much to do with helping the people in the forum... but who does it benefit? hmmm...

I can no longer tell when you're serious or when you are messing with people. This is a sad day.
