There is no rhyme or reason, just making a light statement.

I really enjoy being able to read a thread before it gets 404'd and trash binned. Sometimes I cruise the recent posts and new threads with the mentality of playing this game: 'Read the thread before a mod closes it."

Even when the subject matter is an angry rant or an unsubstantiated claim, if I am able to read a thread before it's closed, I almost feel like I was privy to some special inside information. A bit odd perhaps. Do anyone of you guys play this game also?

Peace.

I do! A fun game, to say the least. Like going up a rank in a secret society: new knowledge, that is closed to others . . .

It's not censorship..... and it doesn't matter how many times it's explained, some just "ain't" gonna get it.

Sometimes I see a newbie posting their first thread, and it's amazingly similar in style and content to someone recently banned. When those threads go *poof*, I assume ATS keeps track of banned members attempting to circumvent their ban. Makes total sense to me.

This is why I'm resentful of the mods. In my experience they are all nice people but I get the impression that they quite enjoy lording it over us muggles, laughing and joking amongst themselves at our inadequacies in their own secret forums, revelling in the power that their insider knowledge gives them.

Sometimes it feels like us normal members are treated like mushrooms - kept in the dark and fed crap. It's no wonder we find these little glimpses into what goes on behind the scenes so fascinating. It is human nature to have your curiosity piqued when you discover that somebody is holding out on you.

Please don't feel that way. It's the furthest from the truth, I assure you.

Yeah, It IS frustrating to open a thread with an interesting title, and find most of the replies have been wiped out and replaced with violation signs, leaving more questions than answers...
