Wow, I've been farking for a couple of years, and this is the first time I've found Drew actively in posting in the same thread.
I feel like I've spotted the Easter bunny or something.  ...Wait, no. Sasquatch.

/Definitely Sasquatch.

logieal typed on pg 1 that he didn't listen to WIBC much when he lived in Indpls.  I did primarily for 500 Mi Race on W 16th St that WIBC provided to AFRTS forever & a half.  Didn't hear of this in time to try to listen.
Wish to thank Ego edo for banhammer  pic at top of pg 2, & cowgirl toffee for pic just above where I now type, that I may never dare post.

All I know is the politics threads are unbearable due to the trolls. I wish we could just get rid of anyone trolling maliciously, no matter what ideology they hold.

And for no reason at all here is a kitty drinking water

The Moderator Caste is what keeps this place from turning into the kind of mono-opinionated circle jerk that the Slashdots and Reddits of the world invariably degrade into.

"Free speech" doesn't apply on the Internet. When you enter someone else's forum, someone else's game, you're in their house. You're on their property. Their rules apply to you now, not congressional restrictions. If they say "Don't be a douche", and you act like a douche, they have the right to ban your ass. Hell, they have the right to ban your ass at any given time, and there's not a lot you can do about it. Get over it, kids.

mikaloyd: Giltric: If someone were to submit an article with government statistics that shows the truth about gun violence, redlighting that article and greenlighting one from MOJO that is full of hyperbole and rhetoric and half truths is not censorship.

/or is it


Mods dont greenlight redlight or fleshlight. Admins do.

Well then WTF do Mods actually do then?

/You know, other than getting into running battles with the Rockers and crashing scooters near cliffs.

mikaloyd: Jon Stewart once kicked my puppy.


amen to that.
screw Falseface Stewart right up the arse. another jerkoff born with a silver spoon in his mouth, failed as an actor and wound up mocking media for money. gee, HS 'cool' rich kid who slums it with the stoners while raking in millions for doing so. watch: years from now he'll be in politics and be an even bigger part of the problem and non of the solution. fark you, Jon with no 'h' Stewart. i got your number right here pal. you can fool some of the dooshbags some of the time...

Fark's moderating problems are primarily inconsistency and ambiguity. Rules are not applied uniformly and when a Farker is punished they're often not told. I don't mean not told why - which also happens - just not told at all.

That's cool. I like to wait for you all to pass out cos then I get to post Pony Pics and LOLCATS. ^__^

[postallthelolcats]

Wait, Is Ms. Mapes a Mod?

Helpfully clarifying whether a link is indeed to an actual satire site and not just some Poe's Law-fueled suckblog and generally being the voice of reason and keeping one's head "when all about are losing theirs" kinda thing?

Cos I thoroughly approve of that type of modding.

I disagree with some of the changes Fark has made, but I can't say I've seen any problems with the moderation.
Admins are the ones that greenlight the blatantly false and misleading headlines/articles.

Like a comment deleted for being off topic when more than half the posts that stay are also off topic?

That's one example, yes. Another that springs to mind is the "wall of boobs" rule. There is some vague limit to the number of tit pics a person can post at once. Yet posting multiple single pics repeatedly is A-OK. So one post with 30 pics is bad but 30 posts with one pic is good.
