Members of the Moderator Board:
The Moderator Reformation has finally begun. Rejoice!
Greetings all, news on the debating society, future plans and happy new year!
Important message to everyone. Please read before posting in this group and the forums.
If your membership or presence in this group is to be a good experience, you must follow the code of conduct
I will now bring forth a debate that will shock the very foundations of modDB!
WHO WOULD WIN?!
OMG CHEWIE WOULD WIN
So the Wind of Change had come?
And the litter of the earth is swept away!
Hey guys have a look at this:
Top 10 gaming controversies. Pretty interesting.
The comments section has been cleansed from the smears of hatred and conflict. Soon the remnants of it ends will follow.
This is not the place to pit your crusades against others for their differences, it is little things like these that boil into full scale chaos.
It was all a childish farce, and most who took part in it have really stooped to such petty boundaries.
Now begins the reformation of this group, evidently my trust has blatantly been misused. I read all of the comments and it felt like I was watching Roman politics. Even splinter groups have formed as a result of this break down.
To those who were not involved or tried to maintain the peace, I thank you and I apologise for what seemed to be such an unruly and unpleasant engagement for an establishment originally found on the very basis of cohesion and civil discussion.
The code of conduct has been completely disregarded, let me reiterate them:
No profanity (CC.1)
No trolling (CC.2)
No remarks or pictures with the intention of being offensive (CC.3)
Personal debates, or specific ones, MUST take place in the forums. (CC.4)
Respect each other's views.(CC.5)
No misquoting. (Re-wording a user's quotes) (CC.8)
No biased sources to present as evidence for argument(CC.9)
I understand we as humans are far from perfect and we falter sometimes, which is ok. What is not ok is allowing the situation to reach a sheer scale of disregard for human empathy and rationality. This behaviour was completely unacceptable from some members and moderators alike!
I am profoundly disappointed.
I am deeply sorry for this long winded rant, but the line has been drawn. It is time to address these issues with thought and maturity.
Please. Do not let this happen again, be heralds of greater wisdom, rather than promoters of strife.
One has to wonder where are all these military officers, commanders and so on keep getting their piles of merit badges, medals, ect. 'Murika hasn't done much of anything besides bomb brown people and their villages for the past few decades.
After the camp Bastion incident in 2012 two USMC Major Generals were relieved of service even though the failure was a result of a lack of funding.
The US has done a lot, and we actually haven't dropped a single "bomb". A lot of the operations in Afghanistan have been tough combat operations, but more than anything else, we've begun to use communication and *real* diplomacy with Afghan leaders over recent years, and you'll find that many of these medals are well deserved regardless of whether or not they're combat medals.
You might want to do some research here, because it doesn't sound like you know much of anything about the US military or any other for that matter.
It's amusing how corporations are going against Republicans for once only because they're threatening their part of economy; the entire economy.
People are ******* suffering and dying from this government shutdown. Those ******* Republicans would tie a rope around America's neck to get get rid of a democratically passed bill. I can't believe people are still being politically correct after this! You don't have to be liberal to know that the GOP is ******* America in the ***, and now they're going balls to the wall because no one noticed it. So many people on the CDC, including children, are suffering because of this. 2 million people aren't getting any money. This is fascism! Now of you'll excuse me, I'll get on with my usual morning routine and wait for aliens to come and fix it for us.
