anyone ever post at sa? any goons here?<br><br>I really love the moderation at those forums. Here is a screen shot of the Leper's colony - <br><br><br><br>HAHAHA, the only place I know where you pay $10 to be able to post as a member and then get banned for being a moron.<br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
I guess I should have posted a link to the forums - <br><br>http://forums.somethingawful.com/<br><br>I don't think most of the good stuff is available without the $10 membership. But I think you can read the forums - not sure.<br><br><br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
I logged out, looks like you can access the Leper colony without being logged in.<br><br>http://forums.somethingawful.com/banlist.php<br><br>The leper colony is a list of recent bans by the moderators. Moderation at it's best - IMHO.<br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
Every once in awhile - whenever I have time. I mostly lurk. Some of the threads are really funny. Some are probably the most interesting I've ever read.<br><br>Moderation is part of the entertainment.<br><br>The moderation is quite interesting there. For example, posting a one liner response to a post that is quite long within minutes of the original post with definitely get you banned for 'Not reading'. Or posting something that doesn't sense will get you banned for 'Posting while on drugs'. Questioning the moderation will definitely get you banned.<br><br>Heated exchanges between members can be augmented by someone paying $10 to give another person a title. For example, if you think someone is a dickhead and want to spend the $10 - you can buy him a new title. The only way that person can get rid of it is by spending $10 to change it back to something else.<br><br><br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.
Man, if I call you a dickhead, will you send me $10 to make me stop? <br><br>What a great income plan. Post worthless crap (though funny), charge people to read it. Charge them again to argue with each other. Ban them, then charge them to un-ban them. I LOVE IT!<br><br>
