Its come to my attention that well before I was a mod I made a thread for the 2012 election. Because of the modding situation in 2016, people seem to have misunderstood what my original intent was in creating that thread and accused me of attempting to “rewrite history” on my intentions.
I have a lot more freedom to as to my moderation at this time so everybody is going to get it raw. This thread is literally meant to be a containment zone so that people don’t put political nonsense all over GD. Remember that this is General Discussion inside of SRK. How literate anybody is at any point in time is questionable at best and subject to an UN investigation at worst.
This means that if you’re posting in this thread, you’re going to have to understand some things about it:
People are going to say crazy shit.
The vast majority aren’t going to watch your youtube video.
Some will probably read w/e article you linked.
Any good conversation you get it out of it will come from ignoring a lot of people.
If you need to know wtf the point of this place is, watch The Wire until you find out about Hamsterdam. I’m the only mod you’re dealing with when it comes to anything involving this thread. Going above my head is not going to save. As a matter of fact, it’ll probably get you a 48 hour time out for being a dunce about this.
Say your peace and have fun. If you’re going to make a really outlandish claim, then please provide a source out of courtesy. If a source is provided and you didn’t read it, then well you can kick rocks and people will clown you.
If you see a post that starts with “This is a Mod Post” you’ll want to pay attention to it. Dragging any political stuff to any other GD thread to dodge this one is going to get you clapped. You need to vent on something, drop it here and then forget about it.
So that’s about it really. Don’t admit to any crimes, don’t encourage legitimately dangerous behavior (like legitimately telling people not to vaccinate their children), and don’t actually post racist stuff. Yes, I can tell the difference between actually racist and just banter. Have fun.
