Mole hunters

SzechuanosaurusSzechuanosaurus Registered User, ClubPA regular
So yeah, when mole hunters catch a mole (and I'm talking about the little blind mammals here, not CIA plants) they string them up on the nearest fence as a deterent to other moles. Possibly. Or maybe its so that the seagulls and crows can eat the bodies. But then you'd just be substituting one pest for another which'd be stupid.

Anyway, what I was trying to say was, when people make things like "Hi, I'm new" threads, lock it and sticky it -- not all of them obviously, just a few to act as deterents to other new people.

If nothing else, it'd let the mods bask in their glorious kills like heads skewered to pikes on London Bridge.

    A Duck! would, of course, disagree with you but I cling to my 134 like a pirate to a piece of rum soaked driftwood -- its all I have in this stormy sea of intellectual brine.

    This is a bad idea. If they're stupid enough not to read the rules they'll be stupid enough to not read a stickied thread up there.

    And while we're here, do you want to bet that maybe a few of them do it.....ON PURPOSE?

    How about ramius makes it part of the activation email.. ya know.. something like, if you click this link you agree to lurk and not make an ass out of yourself by creating a "Hi, I'm new thread", and then threaten banishment or someshit if the law is broken..

    that way they can't say they ever missed the warning.

    This was supposed to be a serious thread. Now Ramius is going to lock it and throw me out of his forum.

    I think the general consensus(I love using words I can't spell) on this is that there will always be stupid people and no matter what we do they are still morons. There is no salvation. The unwelcome ones must be purged from our memory with fires of hate and bandom.

    Personally I am all for a waiting period for Noobs. Like they can not make a new thread until they have made X numbers of posts to show they are not just trolls and/or ban baiters.

    Good point, but it's harder for mods to catch their asshattery if it's tucked away on page 12 of some random thread. Much easier if they make their presence known with a stupid thread so they can get the dirty work done and have them banned.

    Most people that don't read the rules anyway would just click past a rules page

    Ramius should give the mods a lock-count, instead of a postcount.

    That'd be hela cool.

    If nobody notices, then we don't really care anyway and this action is within acceptable terms.
