    Forum Punishment Rework?

    I have seen people talk about threads getting locked due to what people reply with. It would make way more sense to edit/delete the REPLY, not the thread itself.

    If what people are saying about this is false, then please tell me.
    Bananas are a lie. The universe is a simulation. And you are a person behind a screen. Go buy your dog a flavored Collagen and Calcium Phosphate. If you don't have a dog, buy a dog, then get them a flavored Collagen and Calcium Phosphate.

    Well, I suppose it makes a lot of sense to use a flyswatter to kill the mosquitoes buzzing around your apartment, but at some point don't you think you should just close the window?

    The big piece of the puzzle you're missing is that you have no idea how many of the posts we've already edited, how many we've already deleted, how many reports we've dealt with from players asking why we've allowed a thread to go on for so long, how many members we've spoken to, warned, infracted or banned as a result of their attraction to the the posts that are still left visible.

    It's that lack of information about what we deal with in order to do our jobs that puts members at a disadvantage in such a conversation and which necessitated forum rule #19, prohibition against publicly discussing moderator actions. Now, be honest. Were you happier that I just closed this forum rule-breeching thread, or would you have prefered that I left it open for others to post and then infracted everybody who did?
