What I dislike even more is the way the jack-booted "mods" here seem to arbitrarily use their abilities to do so in an otherwise un-calculated matter.
One might regard it as "whimsy".
Or one might also say nepotism. Or cronyism.
Yeah, sometimes a thread is simply closed to further posting, sometimes the unlawful portion is simply edited out by a mod, or the op is given a
chance to revise it themselves via mod warning, and sometimes the entire thread vanishes as if it never existed. It can appear rather arbitrary at
times, which method of correction is employed.
While I do understand the necessity of these corrections, I find it hard to believe anyone would not find it annoying to have something they were
reading suddenly be taken away, especially if they found it interesting. Maybe some people are just very patient... but really? not even slightly
irked, erictheawful?? Or is it that, being a moderator, you are automatically uninterested in any topic deemed subversive to the ATS TnC? Like, when
you became a mod, the program in your brain governing your interests was re-written during times you are reading something on ATS?
Come on... There is being professional at your job, and that's one thing, but there is a difference between understanding the necessity of such
actions, and your own personal annoyance being activated on a level you cannot fully control. A subconscious level.
