    Mod Note (Bells)

    Troll flame bait thread.

    Really, this is childish bullshit and the intent is only to flame others into responding. And you people were stupid enough to fall for it.

    Thread closed.

    [my emphasis added]

    Really calling 'this' childish bullshit is also unnecessary and hardly moderate, but at least his is aimed at the post and not the poster. After that there is no need to mind read, all Bells had to do was justify based on content. That Bells went on and insulted all the participants in the threads was immoderate icing on an immoderate cake.

    Wait, I was insulted?
    I was pretty sure I didn't "fall for it".

    Well, just in case. *Flings poo*

    People make mistakes so why dont we overlook it.
    Sometimes we let things or people get to us and respond in a manner that others will think is strange and mods are just as susceptible to error as anyone else.
    They have a thankless job and do their best and we could help by accepting their decisions, reasons and if at times strange behaviour.

    Of course, though an apology would be appropriate. I don't know the long term behavior of this moderator, but if this is common, then perhaps they might want to drop the role. No need for them to suffer or lower civility here.

    I guess the OP hasn't crossed paths with some of the other mods yet. Bells is Miss Manners by comparison.

    Perhaps the fact that you replied at all indicates that you were drawn in.
    I f MRs intention was to get someone to bite I expect you may have been that someone.
    That is not very nice.

    Yeah, poo already flung.

    When every time I read your posts it seems you're trolling, I'm not even sure if anything you post can be taken seriously.
    Just joking with a joker.

    You dont think a claim that I am always right should be taken seriously.
    Now dont sidetrack this thread.
    I just believe the mods have a difficult job and we should appreciate them and support them.

    Mod Hat — Just a note

    I think you might have made a mistake when you filed a post report complaining according to an inaccurate quote. Now, I'm all well and fine if people wish to celebrate dismal conduct, but the staff has not yet received any explicit instruction to coddle bad faith. That applies both to the childish bullshit in the flamebait thread, as well as the present complaint thread.

    We should probably take a poll on people's expectations of good faith, but that's a far more complicated question than the current complaint about the manner in which a flamebait thread laden with childish bullshit was closed.
