When a Senior Moderator starts talking about what is acceptable on site, it's hard to distinguish between their opinion and what is a ruling.

I could go on a long blast on how your opinions of the phrase are woefully ignorant (I've deleted the paragraphs, goodbye 10mins of my life) but I foresee a particularly cranky mod in my future if I stray too far into General discussion.

Mod actions have big scary red text. If it's a ruling it usually says so ("Ruling:", sometimes in bold and red) or it's in the Moderation forum.

Eh, I post so rarely as a player these days that I guess the criticism has justification to it, particularly when I'm commenting on the "acceptability" of something. I can't promise to always remember to make clear I'm posting non-modly if making a similar such comment in the future, but I'll try to, because it's not fair for someone to think they need to jump when I say something like that, because there's a possibility I could be saying it as a mod.

I'm not going to get into an NSG discussion here on the phrase, but if you want to give me your side on Discord, feel free to DM me, DYP.

Most mods do that. Some, not so much…..

I wasn't actually aware of Sedge's post when I expanded on my distaste for Rivinist offsite. Since there seems to be ambiguity though, you should know that most people generally have interpreted my posts in the least flattering light possible at every opportunity in the past decade. Feel free to interpret my previous post in whichever way angers you the most. This applies to everyone, so each person can get to think I was referring to a different group.

[ENGLAND INVASION, UPDATE]


Hello all!!! Just stopping by to give an update on our occupation of england, and it is going absolutely wonderfully, we’ve freed scotland, wales, and northern ireland from english oppression (of course this was all done with the help of a certain organization in ireland that shall remain nameless) and already we are enacting their revenge. The british army has failed to make significant gains within the last few days, giving us ample time to make many improvements that we deem necessary for england, already we have plans to give most of the southern portion of the country to ireland, and london shall be renamed derrylondon for 800 years. the midlands we plan on giving to the welsh and the english language shall be banned, everyone must now speak welsh. The north shall be given to scotland, and they’ll bond over their shared hatred of thatcher but since they will be the southern part of scotland they shall also from here on out be known as southerners, perhaps a fate worse than death.

thank you to all who have made these glorious changes possible, and let us look forward to the new future of england!

I'm bad at conclusions, go read something else now.

Given raiders newfound affinity for reports themed around terrorist and paramilitary organisations that target civilians, could they indicate which of the following their next report will invoke, just so we know in advance:
  • ISIS
  • Interahamwe
  • Black September Organization
  • Wagner Group
  • Atomwaffen Division

Really? Sedge equates a common Irish Republican slogan to the IRA, and now you are going to flat out accuse raiders of being terrorist sympathizers? You seriously need to give your goddamned head a real hard shake.

Considering their report invokes the IRA, a terrorist and paramilitary organisation that targets civilians, why shouldn't people inquire as to whether raiders will invoke other terrorist or paramilitary organisations that target civilians?

Did it invoke the IRA? They used a common phrase and some guys in military uniforms. Pretty sure that doesn't fit the FBI designation of terrorism.
