Why would it do anything?

 

What does accumulating negative points do for a post or poster? Odds are, those posting disruptive posts don't care about incurring negative points, since there's no associated penalty.

 

It should just auto hide posts once you get to a certain threshold... and then when a poster themselves gets to a certain threshold they start receiving incrementing levels of ROs.

That might make it open to abuse. I see it as a metric for other posters to see whether they should take another poster serious or not.

 

But if we go with it as a way to punish other posters without being abused, I would say if a post receives multiple downvotes, it should alert the mods to take a look at the post and they decide whether the poster should be punished.

 

Of course, that would require the mods to be consistent, fair and balanced among themselves which seems to be something they can never perfect.

Oh great, creeper is back. Just what we need on top of the pasta fanatics determined to devolve the Thread into something closer to their level.

Some children never grow up. They throw childish juvenile insults like apes throw their own poo. Count yourself firmly in that category. You have to evolve to devolve so Your in no danger whatsoever.

The saddest thing to me is how the court system is being used to further the degeneration of the constitution and civil rights. Apparently all one has to do is load the courts with partisan activist judges to get their personal agendas forced on the rest of the population at large.

Wouldn't that just make the forum chronological order Reddit? :P

Yes. I dont see this as a bad thing. Seeing posts get hidden on Reddit is great... and if getting enough neg rep started banning people... this place would clean itself up real quick.

That's interesting if the forums are like Reddit.

Wow, you actually went there. If your prior statements weren't proof that you've got zero tact, this is firm evidence. You should be ashamed of yourself.

A couple things,

 

Firstly, could we please refrain from quoting "they who have been ignored by just about everyone" please? It forces those of us who have made them persona non grata to have to read their unwelcome posts. Yes I know some of you really don't want to use the ignore list, but quoting reprehensible posts from "the ignored" just gives them the attention they want. Please don't feed the trolls.

 

Secondly, Rick Ocasek, the lead singer of The Cars, passed away over the weekend. Another one of the big singers from my childhood has gone.

I agree!  The best way to deal with trolls is to not engage.  Please stop engaging.  Let them go be a bore somewhere else on the internet or IRL.  

 

In more exciting news, here's my Dragon Conqueror Mk.2 before the final matte finishing coat tonight.

Welp, Beta O'Riurke stepped in it at the latest debate.

"Hell yes we're going to take your AR-15, your AK-47...."

That's going to get played and quoted in every gun control debate for decades, every time proponents say that confiscation isn't the end goal.

 

Ya I don't think he helped anyone with that, even himself.

It's a lot darker than I thought it would be, but I think it will look better when the matte coat is on.  It's very shiny at the moment.

 

I'm happy with it at least.  First time I used a rattle can for the main coat.

Do you use oils and the like to weather the tank?  If so, do you do it before or after your put the decals on?

From eyeballing it not closely, it DOES give the impression of the deep bronze green used from the mid 50s which is correct for a Conqueror and which is the colour of the Conqueror inside the Tank Museum.

 

I really wish that tank was a runner. It would be glorious.

 

Also your model looks great!!!

Oh good heavens no.  I like the "factory fresh" look - I don't have the skill for that anyhow :D

Warships forums mods have started disappearing posts and banning posters critical of the submarine insertion -- while those who are cheerleaders, kiss the mods' butts, and give lip service to the letter of the rules while raping the spirit of the rules, are given free reign to engage in vile posting behavior.

"As part of the deal, Purdue would be restructured into a public benefit trust. The deal will cost the company and its billionaire owners, the Sackler family, about $10 billion, according to Miller. That includes $3 billion from the Sackler family’s personal fortune as well as agreeing to sell their Britain-based drug company, Mundipharma."

 

This isn't all of the litigation they're facing, I'd love future wins to include jail time but that's probably too much to ask.
