    Whyyyyy, its banter.
    My posts mainly got deleted yet again.

    Nofap is boring as hell if we just stay on topic in every thread.
    If I want discussions I would go back to college for lectures.

    Spoiled the fun a bit I will admit.
    Plus it's not a journal.

    Back and forth banter that has nothing to do with the OP's original post is considered off-topic and is subject to removal. Please be respectful of the OP's thread and subject matter.

    Yet the thread is in the off topic section...
    My case rests.

    Plus why only my posts get deleted...

    RMS, your posts were not the only ones deleted.

    Yes, the thread was in the off-topic section, not the free-for-all section. The same rules that apply in other areas of the forum apply there too.

    The one that is applicable is:

    My emphasis added.

    By the way, I moved all these posts from the other thread as they were further off-topic.

    Draconian.

    I don't care.
    Free speech.

    Let's all be robots to a system here as well.

    Let's all dance with the fairies and eat cookies while we get shackled.
    If I want to be controlled. I go to North Korea.

    Also, isn't posting messages about forum rules off topic to the original thread topic?

    Oh wait mods are exempt of couuuurse.

    If you'd like this changed, I suggest you use your powers of free speech to convince the community, the moderator team and the site's owner to amend the rules.

    Here's our impasse:

    On one hand, free-flowing threads can be fun.

    On the other hand, when someone is obviously trying to have a serious discussion, the comments that are unrelated to the proposed topic make it difficult to carry on the intent of the thread.

    What would you propose that is a solution to both those things?

    Great, a patronising post with an impossible to answer question at the end because the previous was completely one sided.
    Well done.

    Well I will ask you a question.

    What is the point of calling off topic section off topic if each thread is to be only on topic?

    I hate the forum rules and hate the way you lot moderate things.

    And that, like, dude, is your opinion.

    So, we could make everything better by calling it the "Miscellaneous" section?

    Really though, at that point we'd just be arguing semantics and whoever would end up right wouldn't afford any real solution.

    I've seen a general chat section, or general chat thread, used to some good effect for the kinds of conversations that you may want to have.

    I'm not against you RMS, but if this is going to be a thing, it's got to be done in proper order.

    And why is my discussion about this being isolated to part of the forum hardly anyone looks at.

    Oh wait negativity.
    Yes we don't want the masses having divided thoughts on right or wrong.

    Because this is the appropriate place to have a discussion about NoFap itself.

    Maybe there should be an ANARCHY section where all of the unmoderated content goes. It's a free for all. Blood spilled. Porn everywhere. And... if things get really crazy... thread replies that are off-subject from the original post.

    There needs to be a "You are now leaving NoFap" warning message and a required Click Here before we can be redirected to the pages with off-subject posts.

    Sarcastic patronisation. If that isn't a good way to keep members I don't know what is.

    Oh wait I don't donate, so I'm not a valuable asset. That means I can be isolated amongst the community and secretly laughed at.

    Twisting my original viewpoint into the most extreme form that I don't want. Typical.

    Hate me, fine. I don't care anymore.

    I would refute what you have said, RMS, but I do not believe that you can see reason at this moment.

    My above posts were made in earnest, I was actually trying to help you achieve the thing you wanted. However, for this, you threw nasty comments my way. As such, I am not inclined to further help you. Even if I wanted to, which I did before, right now I think I'd just get more abuse from you.

    I'd have kept silent, but the statement you made above about "twisting my original viewpoint" is a serious accusation. I will say that this simply isn't so. While I can refute this and offer you help in coming to reconcile the matter, you've done me a disservice and I don't want to have further dealings with you while you are in the kind of state of mind you are in right now.

    If you want to keep discussing this, please come back and find me when you are prepared to be civil.

    It's not good to derail threads because it makes it hard for people who actually want to have a discussion about the original topic. On topic posts drown in offtopic ones and the thread eventually ceases to have a meaningful direction. In the thread in question, 'capitalism to blame??' you and deadlihood were the only ones pinging sarcastic messages to each other, clogging the thread for everybody else. So, yes, Jen did the right thing in deleting the cloggage.

    I agree with OST in that the off topic section does not mean that all the threads can be driven offtopic. Rather, the offtopic section is for individual threads that do not fit in any other section. Some of them can be trivial, but for the most part they are interesting, worthwhile discussions.

    We are not against you, RMS. :)

    Well it's probably best if I don't participate in threads anymore.
    I'll just post one more truth.

    So it's been nearly 12 hours since this nonsense.

    Why hasn't the other posts in that thread been moderated yet then huh?

    Oh let me guess, because deadlihood is a donating member he gets to roam free?

    The level of elitism is unreal. I'm sick of this shit.

    Double standards, hypocrisy to the rules.
    I joined this site a year ago. Clearly I've wasted many hours browsing this site, only to be segregated.
    The problem here is nobody likes people like me, blunt and upfront. I spoil the dream of equilibrium in your eyes, well news fact you can't get equilibrium with individuality. I will remain an individual and I will stand for my own didignity.

    Have a nice life...bye

    Edit: I'm not done with this BS.

    I like you man, both you and deadlihood. I haven't looked at the thread you are referring to but I would say this, without any bias - deadlihood posts much more in the way of offtopic remarks and pseudo-rude replies than anyone else. So, if there is you get greater sanctions against you RMS, that is very unfair. As to the reasons, I have no idea to be honest. :confused:

    Because I'm blunt.
    I upset people because I tell it how it is.
