So, if I'm not mistaken, some topics especially from the adult forum got deleted? I agree with that, not because I want to constrain the freedom of speech, but because the adult forum is in the "manga" part and not in the chatter box.

You could have read everything I just wrote in the Adult forum rules, too, but I have another reason to start a new thread.
It's about the attitude of some people in this forum. So far, most posts in this forum have been friendly enough (except when it came to naruto, maybe smile wink grin ). But then, when I criticized one topic (to be specific: it was the "pubic hair" topic), I got this:

Quote
Mod edit: PMs are private, not public


Well, the first reason why I wanted to show you this PM: It's just funny. Especially the last sentence.
The second reason: If the tone of the conversations becomes like this, this forum, no, even the whole mu site will lose its credibility as a serious manga information site. This may have been a PM, but: if people already think that way in private, it isn't a big step to think and express yourself that way publicly. Sure, the mods would probably censor a post like that, but it wouldn't do any good to the forum.
So, my point is, please, refrain from expressing this kind of immature attitude.

I agree with you, and as Penny Arcade noted: "Normal Person + Anonymity + Audience = ****tard".

I'm sorry, maybe I'm missing the concept of PMs, but aren't PMs supposed to private discussions between two members of the forum?

That you'd openly critique a sender, while completely failing to grasp even the most base concepts of the message shows that you truly do not understand forums.

Since your problem is obviously solely with me here, have the decency to tell it to me instead of shitting up these main forums with pointless e-drama.

I can only hope that the mods will have this thread locked, as you're really not offering much to discuss, and are really only complaining about me.

Thanks, buddy. <3 *glomps*

for this one i support sage completely.
everyone has the right to make a thread on whatever they like, as long as its in the right section on the forums.
it can be a question about manga, it can be a question about life, it can be a poll about how you clip your toe nails, its for the poster to decide, and only for the admin to make a justified, legal desition about locking.

and the del about you quoting a pm without permission, was totally jerky thing to do.
none

Well, private messages are private,
but I don't see anything wrong in quoting
a message that was made solely for flaming.
Flaming is against the rules even in private.

cut down the angry phrases, and u get a

"youngster, if my threads r not to your likng, mind you not post in them?

If you cannot tolarate this, please PM me instead of complaining about it as if you were a coward... That would show you have the good will to deal with your problems instead of simply complaining about them...

Hopefully you'll follow my advice so we can get along better in the future smile "

that sounds better, doesnt it? biggrin

ahhh, i suddenly feel like making a thread about toenail clipping...

People should respect the forum rules and not write stuff like that. It's immature. I think that it's in the Global thread too.

But on PM, I'd say that you can say anything you want.

I don't think that topics should be deleted, I think that they should just be locked with explanation, so people will know what to do. Plus, the Adult section seems to be more of a general section than anything else. Stuff in the Chatter Box has been moved there by an admin/mod when the discussions got to be 18+.

saying the "words" on a thread maybe wrong but it's a private message. it should remain private. just as long as the poster didn't post the "words" on a thread, it's fine by me

I'm gonna have to go with the side that says "private messages are called private for a reason". Unless the other person gave permission, don't quote private messages in a public forum.

And btw, the thread was deleted because original poster asked it to be

First of all, the thread got deleted on "request" by Dark_Sage.
And private messages should stay private. If someone is flaming you on PM and you just can't stand it anymore, you should report them to an admin/mod and not post them in the forum.

PS. I'm slow.... Lamb got here first... I feel like a parakeet now.
