Xhin is listening.

Several months ago I spoke out against a hypothetical block feature.

Now, I think that users should be able to individually ban other users from being able to post in their thread.

1. Each users thread is their own.

2. Each user can make their own thread regarding anything anyway, so being excluded from certain threads doesn't equate to exclusion from the site.

3. Too often threads are derailed and too much effort is spent attempting to get the thread back on the original topic of discresion.

4. This feature will probably be most used against me anyway, which is fine since I usually start my own threads anyway.

5. I don't see anyone abusing this feature anyway. I personally would just like to use it on one or two people for my threads, which are often under attack by the same people.

6. Sometimes a mods decision may not be what the creator of the thread wanted for his thread. This is the case with many people here.

Yeah because with the way people act around here people won't post a thread and then ban anyone who might disagree........

This goes against freedom of speech.

If you'd actually answer my questions I wouldn't have to keep showing up and asking. I know this is specifically directed at me.

And by the way, I don't actually have gender dysphoria. That was a social experiment to see which of you people was going to be the biggest bigot about it. So congratulations for being a huge piece of shit. :P

Not talking to someone for being "degenerate" is so hilariously intolerant. The fact that you're so scared of me that you want to block me from even speaking to you shows how much of a cucking snowflake you really are. Go eat a dick.

I, too, love the word "anyway."

Each person's thread is essentially their own property and shitposting is equivilient to trespassing . If mods aren't going to do anything about inflammatory and toxic posts then allow the user too is a bigger freedom. They are always free to start their own threads . All inaction does is protect the right to destroy other people's threads .

Technically it's the site owners property.

We should have a diary forum where we can say what we want, bias and all, and no one is allowed to reply. Only read.

A case for banning people from their own threads

People being able to self police their threads is dumb? Why ? Do you have an anime pic that elaborates on that claim ?

It's dumb because people who join your thread will not get an accurate depiction of how the members feel. And lets say you ban me. I can just make a similar thread right above yours. And you'll still see my replies in newest replies. Even if you ignore me, half of your discussion is gonna end up in my thread. Which I can then, in turn, ban you from. It's silly.

Just be an adult and ignore people.

This makes zero sense. One thread is not indicative of a forum consensus.

And lets say you ban me. I can just make a similar thread right above yours

If you felt strongly enough to make a second thread on the same issue, which has happened many times then go for it.

And you'll still see my replies in newest replies. 

Not if I were to block you. But if I didn't, then yes i would see. So what ?

Even if you ignore me, half of your discussion is gonna end up in my thread. 

A sacrifice id be more than willing to make.

Which I can then, in turn, ban you from. It's silly. 

Sounds fine to me.

One thread is not indicative of a forum consensus.

You're banning me from your stuff not because of the content I post but because you don't like me.

But if you ban other people because you don't like their content, then you are just confirming your own bias by eliminating the opposition to your views without having to argue them. Which ruins the credibility and integrity of your threads.

Whatever #85. I don't see why we can't agree just not to talk to each other.

I mean sometimes we are interested in the same things. But I won't actively follow you around. I will cut the quantity my responses to your content to 5 percent of what they are now. I will only post on your content if I have an interesting point to make.

And since you likely won't respond anyway, then neither of us will be wasting our time.

I still request the feature and await further ruling

That's fine. This site sucks anyway. Gonna get Xhin to iron out global banning so it's better, and then have myself permabanned again and that will solve all your problems. :)

Basically, all these problems are caused by people who don't want to admit their own faults. I've been in so many threads on Facebook where the following happened:

  • I was blocked, unfriended, and my comments were deleted even though the poster was a bully and I was standing up for those he was bullying
  • The entire comment thread was removed after I made a valid point
  • The entire POST was removed after I made a valid point
  • Everyone ganged up against me and started name calling/knee jerking one-word responses instead of actually having a real conversation

    And all this happened for very stupid reasons. You are not the dictator of your own thread. If you can't handle criticism, leave. Not just the thread, or the forum, or this website, but the WORLD! If you cannot defend your ideas and the criticism they garner, then just go! Your fantasy of everyone agreeing with you is not going to happen EVER! On Facebook I said there's no evidence GMOs are harmful, and I still had critics saying and doing all of the above, acting like little bratty children with their response. I didn't think they should be blocked, though. Anyone passing by who read my response next to theirs would only end up agreeing with me because I actually supported my cause soundly.

    If your ideas look worse around others, then either A: you're not defending yourself properly, or B: your idea has flaws and needs to change. You've defended your beliefs adamantly, but the thing you're defending makes no sense. Republicans said free college would ruin us, then tried to pass a budget that added more money than what it would cost for free college to our already-insanely-bloated military budget, raising it to $700,000,000,000. Trump made snide comments about POWs when it was convenient for him to put down John McCain, but now all of a sudden is a loyal American when blasting NFL players for protesting the anthem and has yet to do anything about hurricane Maria's devastation to Puerto Rico. He's also sending bombers over North Korea past the demilitarized zone. This was all just within the last week!

    No disrespect intended, but do you realize that this can be applied to your own portfolio of never-ending arguments that you have been involved in on this site?

    Why can't you just ignore people? Lots of people shitpost, yourself included.

    Besides, disagreement breeds discussion. Do you want all your threads to be echo chambers of the same point of view?

    No, it's the property of the site owner. Moderation of the forum falls to officially assigned moderators.

    If I were you, I wouldn't worry about it. Things are going to change soon.

    Sometimes two parties agree and the original topic morphs into something else. But what about when someone, they, the creator of the thread, doesnt want their thread covered with what they deem shitposts. Already have a block feature so the free speech arguments are out the window . This would be a great update, allow users to ensure the topic of their thread is protected , not harm anyone as people can always make their own threads , ect.

    People can be easily ignored but the thread remains cluttered with off topic content .

    No. Theoretically one could ban everyone that doesn't agreed from their threads but who would actually do that ? Not me

    No, it's the property of the site owner. Moderation of the forum falls to officially assigned moderators. 

    I meant it in a metaphorical sense, not a literal sense.

    1. If they are shitposts, report them and have the moderators moderate it.

    2. If they're not actually shitposts, get over it.

    Why have this big red tape process no one wants to go through to remove garbage which is only subjective to the opinion of one local moderator ? Remember world forum is a different animal than the rest of the site. Historically more has always been tolerated but obviously many take issue with it. "Get over it" is not an effective answer

    "I don't want to get over it" is not an effective complaint.

    And not once have I ever thought that I wanted to remove someone else's reply because it made my argument weaker. I'm perfectly fine leaving my replies up next to everyone else's. In the end, the truth always shines through, and well-argued points stand the test of time while petty squabbles do not.

    I used to argue on ends about how many games are trying to be "realistic" when there is so much more interesting and engaging art styles to be had from playing with colors and pushing stylistic design. Now the talk of the town is Overwatch, and high-style is in.

    interesting and engaging


    As normal, very subjective. Your failure to understand this is what led to a lot of those arguments.

    Now the talk of the town is Overwatch, and high-style is in.


    Overall, Overwatch is not a new concept in any way. Team Fortress, DotA, LoL and other highly-regarded competitive games use many of the same principles and values in their design. It is absolutely not as if there were some Dark Ages where everything was brown'n'bloom. Perhaps if you only paid attention to Calladooty games in the '00s, maybe.

    Do you represent the staff ? Serious question . I think everyone's a mod but me right ? Can't be bothered to dig for the list .

    Its not just me taking issue with one post, multiple people are having problems with multiple people. And if the answer is "deal with it" people are going to say "ok well fuck you bye" and everyone will leave right ? Couple have left already

    Things are in the process of changing. If you still have issues after the change, I'll make something like this feature.
