ask moderation about reading serious moderation candidates TGs without telling them about it until afterwards and/or apparently refusing to confirm/deny the exact timeline of TG reading ~~~ i hope you never sent any of the recent mods or the ones that got really close anything personal!

signature edit: confirmation has been received. they will explicitly do it before and without asking. they can look at TGs basically whenever they want so please keep this in mind when nominating people for moderator or TGing good posters/anyone!

Four companies who were developing tech for the "Porn Block" are seeking £3m in damages after the idea was scrapped.

I hope they're rightly compensated for the emotional distress of state blue-balling.

One of the mods dropped by in the last thread a few days ago and said that a new thread needed to be created, and I complied. :)
