    Source link

    • Thread "When talking to the police, always be truthful": Source link added to topic post.

    Members are reminded that quoted material must be accompanied by source information. Minimal standard is author and hyperlink when available. Source name (e.g., website name) will suffice if no other author information is available.

    Post edit, thread closure

    • Thread "I want my kidney back!!": Post edit to remove material perceived as insulting. There does exist a question of whether or not it is fair and appropriate to sting another member according to their family. While, on the one hand, a member might insult his or her own family on a regular basis around here, and while some of my colleagues consider it perfectly acceptable to openly denigrate another member according to facts real or imagined about their family, those people are not present to defend themselves, and really ought to be left out of it.

    • Thread closed for plagiarism in topic post. Members are required to properly attribute quoted material to its source, and our standard (author and link for online sources) really is quite easy to accommodate.

    • Thread re-opened in expectation of source link.

    Thread closure, queue for review

    • "Sad state of humanity" queued for review.

    • Thread closed. Policy inquiry regarding snuff films and adult websites undertaken. Update to follow.

    Update: Thread deleted. No member sanctions issued; while the underlying question of the thread is one we can appreciate, the problem was a matter of content and source. To clarify that point specifically: Snuff films and adult websites are absolutely off-limits. If, for some reason, a member believes he or she has encountered a reasonable exception to this rule, inquire via administration, and be prepared to explain the basis for exception. In truth, I would expect that very few such propositions—if any at all—will be approved.

    Post deletion

    • "Man Beheads Wife in 'Honor' Killing": Post deleted, insulting content.

    Note: Frankly, I don't feel like cleaning up twenty-eight pages of people's hatred and fury. If I find much more to deal with, I'll just send the whole thing.

    Update: Further Action:

    • Post edited; remove pathetic trolling.
