    Can I at least get a reason why from the mod that did it? It was 5 pages in with some really funny posts, I see nothing in any of the rules relating to shoop threads. It certainly wasn't fighter bashing unless you have some serious soft skin.

    Maybe the mod was a Barao fan and got his panties in a bunch ? I dunno.

    Maybe because of the tattoo being his grandmother? So we can make fun of crippling drug addiction, we can laugh at people being knocked completely unconscious, we can make humor in broken bones, but we can't shoop someone's awful tattoo? Only on sherdog.

    It's not like it was even moved to pictures or wastelanded or something like that. Just outright deleted, no warning about what was being done wrong in the thread, or a PM letting me know or anything like that. One minute it's there, I refresh and it's an invalid thread.

    I'd love to know what rules the thread had broken, that'd be sweet. The shoop threads are the only decent part of this site.

    No kidding? I had just posted a new picture in the copy I had open last night and didn't even look at the new page when it posted. Christ I missed half of my own thread from some overzealous mod.

    I bet some idiot posted some shoops that were against the rules and rather than delete the posts a mod Schaub'd the thread.

    Some of the mods on this site are out to lunch, just a bunch of power hungery geeks with nothing else to do

    I'm not really sure why it was deleted. As long as the posters are only making fun of the tattoo itself and not his relative then it's not breaking any rules.

    I restored it and moved it to MMA P&M

    And it had 5 pages, you noobs.

    30 posts per page is the only way to go.

    Lethal is added to my "list of mods that kick ass"

    Thank you very much, it's greatly appreciated. I'll update the OP to clarify it's for taunting the tattoo and not the relative, and I'll report any posts otherwise so they can be looked at by a mod and decided upon by them.


    Edit: Yeah I thought it was 5, aw man now I'm upset. I thought I had 8 more pages to go through.

    I'm all for a joke, but making fun of a fighter's grandma is off limits, and that thread is too much all over that line.

    Once again, it was the tattoo. The grandma almost certainly doesn't look as bad as that tattoo does. That's what the joke was, the tattoo came out awful because portrait tattoos almost always come out awful.

    I had just finished updating the OP with huge yellow text saying not to insult or demean Barao or his relatives and to focus the shoops solely on the tattoo, and then edited out any posts of mine I felt were over the boundaries (there was 1), PMing a mod about the one other post that was offensive that was from another user.

    Most of the shoops were putting new tattoos on his chest. I fail to see how making fun of a poorly drawn tattoo is more offensive than a legitimate drug problem.

    Leave people's family etc. out of the jokes/shoop threads. I'm not saying every shoop would cross that line. But it's too close to it to bother with.

    And really, you don't see how making fun of a drug test isn't as bad as making fun of their grandma?

    But it wasn't about the family. His grandma was nowhere in that thread, only his awful tattoo was. If anything you're saying his grandma is ugly by thinking that tattoo actually looks like her. Nobody insulted his grandma, they said he got an awful tattoo.

    And yeah, I think somebody having to check into a rehabilitation facility is a lot more off-grounds for taunting then somebody getting an awful tattoo on their chest.

    But fair enough, I made my argument, it's been shot down. If that's how it is then that's fine, I'm happy enough to get a reasoning for it at least, even if it's not one I can agree with.

    I appreciate that, and yeah I think a lot of the posts would have been not about his grandma, but enough of them would be to not make it worth it. Better to just people's families/loved ones out of it. I appreciate you talking it out here with me too.

    My first reaction is usually "Anger fury anger fury anger", which is definitely a big fault of mine (look no further than the post I started the thread with.) But after a few minutes I'm pretty reasonable to deal with. I don't want issues with people if it can be avoided.
