    It is not so much why my thread was moved, but why was I carded for racism? Asian cuisine does have dog in it sometimes. Plus I was not even given a private message notification

    I appreciate the Nazi being punched thread finally being closed. I think the discussion was fine, but the OPs condoning of violence was not.

    I call the mods out at times, but I have to give credit where it's due. You followed through and did the right thing. I sincerely appreciate the work you guys do even if we're at odds at times

    @BAM not sure how to get this message to you folks as I don't know who ended up closing it

    Why was my "The Mad Pooper" thread deleted from Mayberry? It was a real news article and a relatively tame post.

    From the Forum Rules:

    Even if the OP doesn't have that content, it's impossible to keep the thread from attracting more of those types of posts and images.

    Like an explanation on that. It was a valid point about UFC culture compared to other sports. It was deleted in probably a minute flat. Who has their finger on this button and had to delete the thread so quickly? What was unwise? Acting like the thread is a danger to the forum or something. May cause unrest. lol. wtf.

    There is no reason to bring a hot button political debate into the UFC subforum, and it would not bring productive discussion to the table. Not only did you disparage national anthems themselves in the original post, but you also said you hated the issue you claimed to raise. If you want to have a discussion about the UFC and its anthems, make the thread in the war room, but please keep politics out of the heavies.

    It is something about the production of the UFC from other sports. It isnt a political issue.

    Oh, I disparage national anthems? lol. They are bad music and make me go to bed later. I like the quickness of the UFC. There was a point being made. But whatever. Doesn't matter in big scheme of things. I am just annoyed. lol

    I accept your reasoning. It would most likely turn into stupidity when I wanted it to be about aesthetics.

    Why was the "evidence for theory of evolution" thread closed after 2 years and over 50 pages?

    Most threads are closed at 1,000 posts and started with a new version, other than specially approved/current event threads. That thread broke 1000 posts, so I believe it was locked and the next one can start anew.

    If it's over 50 pages then it's likely above the 1000 post limit. Either the TS or anyone else who was highly invested in the thread is free to make a Version 2.

    The thread is about Megadeth, the band. It was moved to the Music Discussion forum. I don't see what the problem is, that's why we made the Music subforum - for discussion about music. If you're concerned your thread won't get the traffic it might have gotten in Mayberry, then help Bam's Bieberverse grow by posting more in it.

    Post in an unrelated thread to generate traffic for a thread that would have had a day of activity and then be finished?
    Seems kind of the long way to go about having a simple thread for discussion.
    But no big deal, there were only a few people that would've given a shit anyways, it's best that it never got a chance.

    I just had 3 threads deleted without so much as a notification and there were posts I haven't read in it yet

    really?

    People were enjoying these threads what is the problem?

    I'm pretty annoyed so I'm just going to log off for a while.

    @Clippy

    Your threads were deleted for posting what is essentially stream of consciousness; that is, lacking an OP that merits intelligent discussion or taps into any light-hearted humour – as are standards for the Berry.

    I feel like that's most of my threads ... so it's like you're picking and choosing which ones to remove

    Cause there's all sorts of terrible threads in that section that survive somehow

    Can you meet me half way and put them in the plats (cause there seems to be no rules there) or dump so I can view the replies?

    People were having fun drawing chickens, don't know which mod missed their turkey dinner and got all pissed off about it

    Thanks friend

    I'm sorry @Valkosen I don't mean to give you a hard time.

    My back hurts and it's making me easily annoyed.

    Honestly the onyl thread of the 3 I was concerned about was the draw a turkey thread, that was harmless fun

    I also am confused by threads being deleted without notifications - or skipping the dump - there's no consistancy here

    Ehhhhhh I'll stfu now
