    I agree. I have no problem with shit posts getting deleted or moved. I would just like some transparency so we can have some discussion.

    I've moved most of the OT posts into this thread. It seems to work better than just deleting them at getting people back on topic.
    "Off Topic Trash" has been my standard autofill text for deleting off topic posts for ages, I just didn't bother changing it when I started moving them and notifying the posters.

    Well, if it really bothers people I guess I can delete my autofill cache and put in "Off Topic". Pain in the arse though.

    Edit: NVM I figured out how to delete specific entries.

    It's fine. Not everyone likes the OT. I thought you were typing it out every time to zing people, or something.

    Eh, by default mod notes and notifications aren't sent to the poster, but I've switched to checking the box to avoid endless explanations in Support and to make sure the off topic discussions continued here. When I move a batch of posts it's the same message for all of them.

    You should change it to "Off-topic tomfoolery".

    It's classy.

    I'd like to reach across the aisle and support this proposal. Shenanigans would also be acceptable.

    I actually enjoy it when I get an "off topic trash" notification on one of my posts.


    But it's only because the mods have brainwashed me like Alex in Clockwork. Every time I try to backtrace somebody, a phantom electric pain shoots down from my elbow. Flee to the offshoots if you know what's good for you!

    Don't shitpost and then try to play victim.

    That's just nonsense.

    I thanked a veteran for his service. That was deemed off topic trash
    I responded to a poster who said you don't need firearms, just call the police, by saying "call the police so they can solve your murder". That was deemed to be trolling.

    Did you ask mods specifically?

    Nah, you did this

    Not sure about thanking the veteran for his service, that seems unlikely (I only move offtopic posts when they reach the stage of being a derail or just empty flaming), but the one about "call the police so they can solve your murder" was part of a bunch of posts by, and replies to, WorldOfWarcraft who was derailing a thread by trolling and pretending to be a gun grabber. When multiple posts are dealt with in batches, the notification note is simply applied to all of them.

    Yeah I wasn't really concerned about that because I noticed the post I quoted got deleted as well, so I figured it was part of getting rid of a whole bunch. No issue with that other than saying it was trolling. He may have been, I wasn't. I didn't notice it was WOW that I was quoting, if had seen that I likely wouldn't have even responded.

    I did not ask mods because it has literally only happened 3 times, so not that big a deal, but we have @JosephDredd who has gone full troll recently and little is done about it. Thus my comment. Thanks for your concern.
