    Where did the "Post Whore" thread go!?

    So, I was just wonder where it had disappeared to... The conversations didn't seem to be anything to worry about, maybe a slightly more condensed version of what we see spattered across the board, but I'd say nothing objectionable.

    I know that there has been an issue on the content-matter of avatars and pictures that have been posted lately(which is quite confusing because it still adheres to the "PG-13" content rules of the website), but if that was the only reason for the thread's disappearance, why did the pictures just not get deleted like content (be it words, sentences, or whole posts) in other threads that the GMI staff members don't agree with?

    Come on guys, this is getting a little crazy... I know certain readers also don't agree with the subject matter, but they are more than able to skip over the thread rather than reading it and complaining about it every time it offends them.

    I didn't even realize it was gone. I had not posted in the thread but it through it every once in a while to see what the community was going on about. Certainly was some fairly interesting stuff but nothing that really bothered me.
    Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing.

    I'm guessing this is due to a fuss created by someone who's used portraits of George Bush and mutant canines as his "inoffensive" avatars...

    The thread veered off-topic to a matter that isn't something that needs to be discussed publicly at this time.

    When a thread is deleted does that cause members post count to go down?

    If it does, that certainly won't help the "post whore" reach his ultimate goal.

    No, it does not. The threads are not deleted, they are moved to a location on the site that only staff can access. This is so we can refer back to them if needed.

    There is good reason there is only 2 people in my ignore list, after all these years.. I just confirmed that it was the right decision to put them there.

    Was it in the Snake Pit? I can't remember. But it was a great, very human, very sharing LIGHT HEARTED fun thread that I think created a new openness and friendliness at GMI.

    Kind of ironic that it disappeared. Oh well.

    It got really rough. I had to stop reading after the 3rd page.

    Never even looked at it. I might go check it out now...

    And there's another reason why some of you guys should work at becoming contributors to GMI...

    What irony? Some a-hole complained to a mod, so it was removed (probably Buick61... is there anything he DOESN'T cry about?).

    That's how GMI works. It doesn't matter what the majority wishes ... it's the crybabies and idiots who are pandered to.

    And the more crybaby / dumbass / narrow minded / redneck / homophobic / too-stupid-to-get-basic-sarcasm the complainer is, the more quickly GMI panders to their foot-stamping petulance.

    GMI is merely a reflection of the degradation of American society, where the twofold evils of political correctness and "Church Lady" mentality have entrenched themselves, displacing prudency and sanity.
