    Nah I meant lock the thread with the comments and just let it sink to the bottom of the page.
    It was a thread to draw in like minded people to actually give a fighter props instead of shitting all over them. Have you been to the forum recently? There's a bunch of threads bashing Joanna and Rose that are still active.

    If you're going to delete threads that draw in trolls at least stay consistent and delete the ones with troll bait titles.

    Because of the traffic in that section, along with us having multiple sub forums and our limited staffing, if it's not reported it likely won't be seen by a Moderator. Just report these threads or posts and someone will look into it.

    Should be fine, as long as it doesn't turn into advertising or done excessively.

    I have posted a discussion regarding GSP vs Fedor GOAT status, twice now and one of your mods has taken offence to it and removed it, now warning me that re-posting it will get me dubs.

    It literally contained dot points regarding both's career as well as a little math for win% and opponent win%

    Unless the entire reason of deletion was because of a "HOWBOW DAH" at the end which was just for humour (its a meme, catch me outside girl).

    I'll post the entire thing here, please clarify which part is "Trolling" so i can have an understanding of it. Unless of course, facts are now counted as trolling.

    Thats fair, i saw support and blindly thought it was for all support issues.

    Do you have input on my thread and what part of it is considered "Trolling"? I'd like to post it without having it removed, so i'll adjust it accordingly.

    Because to me it really feels like one of your mods can't handle facts that make their favourite fighter appear not as great as they'd like, and is trying to censor the thread.

    My interpretation on why it was deleted amounts to the off-topic trajectory of the thread as well as negatively spoon-feeding OP for why the Community should collectively discredit Fjodor's MMA career.

    Because you are also entertaining comparison of one mixed martial artist to another in a largely fantasy context, the correct sub for thread creation should be Wasteland.

    I hope this helps on how best and where to thread productive content moving forward.

    Enjoy the site.

    What about this then?
    http://forums.sherdog.com/threads/all-time-and-skillwise-fedor-gsp.3651329/

    I fail to see the differences.

    I never discredited Fedor, i said many times inside the thread that he was a great fighter. I was arguing GOAT status and only GOAT status.

    What do i need to edit for the post to be allowed like the above one i linked? I was threatened with dubs. It really feels like one of your mods was just abusing their power because they didn't personally like what i had to say.

    I was locked out of my own thread "evidence for theory of evolution". I think this decision is absolutely ridiculous. I've shown a willingness to discuss the topic with anywho wish to talk about it. The mod who locked me from the thread was posting nonsense a few pages prior. Calling my questions a trap insinuating I'm a troll etc.

    Is this how the waroom is moderated now?

    My thread titled "Bharat Khandare - first Indian in UFC" was deleted - why? It was unanimously enjoyed by all posters and had no flame wars or any kind of conflict.

    Huh? My thread was about Bharat Khandare who is certainly not Canadian. Other posters have mentioned Arjan Bhullar who is indeed Canadian of Indian heritage but you could just delete those posts.

    Besides, nobody was making fun of anybody, aside from a few innocent puns. Surprised to see SD turn so PC all of a sudden. Could have moved it to the War Room if puns are suddenly off-limits in the main forum. :p

    Well I guess he was referring to both Khandare and Bhullar, but the idea was that the entire thread consisted of mocking them for being Indian (random Indian stereotypes and memes/gifs), which was initiated by the puns in your OP, and the thread/posts were getting reported for racism.

    Must have missed that since I'm in Europe and shit hit the fan in US hours. Can't even make a pun these days without ppl going full racist or full SJW I guess.

    a thread was dumped today, and so far as i can tell, no rules were even flirted with, let alone broken

    i think the universal expectation here is that when we write posts, that our thoughts will be publicly available to be read, reacted to, scrutinized, etc

    if this weren't the case, we'd all just be writing in our personal diaries

    i'd argue that the primary motivation for posting here, or anywhere, is the chance for people to try out their ideas, then succeed or fail by their merits

    if that draw is taken away for no good reason, and could potentially be taken away at any moment for no good reason, what are any of us even doing here?

    here is the thread:

    http://forums.sherdog.com/threads/c...ing-to-more-to-the-back-of-a-concert.3646813/

    quite a few people made thoughtful and serious posts, with the entirely reasonable expectation that their words would be featured in the section for which they were intended

    i think all of the following deserve an explanation, because i cannot see any legitimate reason for censoring this thread


    i personally have a lot more i'd like to say in that thread, but there's no way i'm gonna put the time in to have it be read by four people
