Giltric: Notabunny: Is this where I sign up for a smack from teh banhammer?

The thread is an experiment, welcoming posters to test the boundaries.

At least that's what I read into it.

So it's a frog in a pan sort of thing, then? Ok

Giltric: In all seriousness Fark is not heavy handed with the moderation.

There is definitely more freedom of thought/opinion etc here than at other forums.

Is that freedom a planned feature, or an alcohol-fueled source of constant shame and regret? For example

"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.

On an unrelated issue, shoot me an email soonish. I'd like to expedite the issue we discussed recently before I forget all about it.

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.

I for one etc. etc.

ski9600: I just wish that one farkette hadn't gotten moderated so much.

She was using Fark to drive traffic to her paysite.
Without paying for advetising.

Trust me on this.
/Yes, yes, I know moderating isn't easy since we're worse than ADHD 5-year-olds on M&M's and Red Bull

Hah. Lootie.

There was another forum where someone ran into him in the meat world and Lootie knew he was a meme and was sad about it.

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.
