If you check the bottom of the page, I am the moderator for this forum.
And just because there is no moderator doesn't mean the threads are unmoderated. Just that there is no set person to moderate them. So try to contain yourself, and not post politard or religion bashing threads (despite how much I dislike organized religion) and everything will be fine.. Mmkay?

I hate to be anything that even slightly resembles a lawyer but...

"You can talk about anything here. Not moderated. Post exploits, complaints, questions, off topic etc. Open 24 hours a day...."

that really makes it seem as if nobody's supposed to care what people talk about in here

I'll have to request that be changed, then, won't I? :p

It'll have to be 'barely moderated'. Trolling and flame wars will not be tolerated. Nor will endless politards/religion debates.

 to put it bluntly i think religeon is crap.

 
 There you go.
 
 From there you proceeded to bash other people's belief systems. Sure, you tried to save face by saying that you can appreciate the strength and drive it gives to people, but your statement was contradictory. And was more headed into a debate on religion, which we have seen countless times on HLP. Threads such as those degenerate rather quickly. As do the political threads.
 
 None of you will change eachother's minds. But the arguing will go on for page after page if left unchecked.
 
 Also:
 
 "This is the internet. Get over yourself."
 
 I think that's a fitting statement for people looking to start flame wars.
 And if you think I'm directing that at you, you have a guilty conscience.

can we have a seperate flamewar section?

so that people who dont want to deal with it dont have to, and people who like being offended and reading the viewpoints of others on controvercial subjects can do so in relative peace and isolation?

Umm... I highly doubt that'll happen. But I am not an admin. I am merely a moderator. And my only purpose is to keep things civil.

i personally dont think i was bashing when i said all religeon was crap i was mearly portraying my point of view and if people were affended by that then its their problem." From there you proceeded to bash other people's belief systems"
i was just saying my ideas on the subject and in no way "bashing" anyone

you were bashing religion in general, and while it really does deserve a good bashing, some people take it personally (yet another problem with religion) and don't appreciate your opinion.  like, if you run into a church and yell "Jesus was a big stupidhead (or something to that effect)" people might get offended

unmoderated means that your posts will hit the thread without the need for a moderator to read them and ok them first.  If you'd like to see how it works i would be more than happy to make this entire forum moderated in that manner.  Or i could create a user group for southern, and in the user group options i can set it up that all posts from that user group must be moderated.

understand?

In regards to SP's post: Whatever. I didn't lock it. Matt did. He has his reasons, and as this is his forum, and his webspace, that he is paying for us to use free of charge, we are to respect his wishes. If he doesn't want Political or religious threads on his forum, then I will do what I can to make sure there are none in this forum. End of discussion.

ok southern here is the deal.  no one is forcing you to be here.  if you don't like the way things are done, there are other forums, including a brand new one.  However, i will not be drawn into a discussion of this matter.  No politard threads, no religeon threads.  If you cannot live with that, then i would suggest that you look for a different forum to post in.

This discussion has come to an end.

*sigh*
 
 Grammar owns you.
 
 How do I know he didn't want threads like that? Simple. By reading his replies to the threads that are locked stating that he doesn't want threads like that. It'd be pretty pointless to stalk him, since he lives in Texas, and I live in New York. There are far more eloquent ways of expressing yorur opinion without stepping over other people. And since you cannot have a simple argument without resorting to lame humiliation attempts, I'm closing this thread.
