Yeah there are bigger problems that some random kiddo trolling or just talking ****.
But in here, if there's not authority applied or we don't apply those laws (on cyberspace) things can get very ugly.
It's frustrating, virtually speaking but punishment must be applied if the user behaviour is erratic/insulting/etc because we have to care of the community and avoid useless confrotations.
One thing is a real world issue and another thing is some kind of *anarchy* because we *can't punish them* or they just don't give a damn.
There's a thin line and if staff (anyone including me as senior members) wants to keep the forum clean. We have to use any means necessary to stop some sensless discussion or any other thing that could happen.
A board without Admin, Moderators, S-mods, Senior members = Is nothing.
I totally understand your point but we have to deal with them on a daily basis on internet.
And most of the times is not so easy ignore when you know that the user is at fault.
Even if the affected part do not care about being infracted.
Agree with your words but someone has to close the thread if it turns upside down. So at the end any board needs (i don't care what scene is at this point) Moderators to check what's happening and act as fast as possible.
But n00bs threads or the ones that i call hit and run ones, each day are getting more annoying. Im a n00b too but i have certain *codes* that i follow.
That's the issue, if nobody is there to warn someone to stop it already any moron will do the **** he/she wants and create another duplicate thread when he already has his response. Like you see any day you enter to any board and check threads.
3 thread almost per day or less consist in the same question but with a different approach.
