You will get used to the mods.
They do plenty of questionable things.
They were given authority over parts of this site.
Nothing we can do.
Every week there is a complaint against them.
You will only be ignored.

Short Answer: Yes.

Sounds like you posted in 'Breaking News' which has a different way of handling posts, I believe using the sourced title of the story you are posting as the thread title is the way you are supposed to post there.

If so, this sounds like a PEBKAC error.

It isn't a conspiracy.
This site has an owner, who can run it as he sees fit.

replaced withthe title of article
This is exactly why. Maybe you should have followed the rules, that are designed to hopefully minimize the numerous amounts of duplicate threads that continue being posted time and time again. Part of the reason for many of the duplicate threads is because of those who choose to spice up the title with their own words, which in turn makes the search feature that much less accurate.

Starting threads about complaints about Mods never turns out well, OP


Instead, send them a u2u, if the answer received is not sufficient, "Alert" the thread and your issue will be discussed between multiple Mods, like a round table.

If you are still not satisfied then you will just have to deal with it and move on.

You don't really have a right to free speech when you're posting on a privately owned board. Site owners can do what they want. Just the way it is. They set the rules and you agree to them when you make an account. It's all in the Terms of Service.

Also I think it's an attempt on the owner's part to combat plagiarism, which really is a big problem. Most people will plagiarize without even realizing they're doing it. Easy mistake if you aren't familiar with the rules.

Nope. It's not a joke. It is actually extremely logical, as I have already explained.

I see that you don't have much of a need for logic though. If you made an attempt to listen to reason, then it would be much more difficult to continue being angry about it. Go ahead and continue being angry, if it makes you feel better.

the way it was quoting was changed... I get that... Truly I do. I'm just blown away cause the main reason I posted it WAS for the title... Namely... Solargate.... Had not heard it yet and wanted to be able to post it first...
