I ended up deleting it [In reply to] Can't Post

...the whole thread, that is, as it had turned into an insult/swearing fest by some, even after Eledhwen posted about the ToS.

An insult/swearing fest? And I missed it?
So unfair...

I totally agree, s.d. [In reply to] Can't Post

Our cardinal rule as Admins is: 'edit before you delete,' so it takes a lot of editing before a post, or thread, becomes unsalvageable. Several of the Admins tried to edit and save the thread throughout the morning from the moment it was posted, including posting a request that people calm down. But, even after that request, it got too out of hand. All of us Admins are volunteers and are often reading when we're at work (cough, cough Blush). After a while you just have to throw in the towel because it's taking too much time to wade through.

I know that many people in that thread were just having lighthearted fun. It's too bad when a few people spoil it for the rest of us.

One by one they faded, and fell into shadow...

One book to rule them all
One book to find them
One book to bring them all
And in TORn bind them
In the land of TORnadoes...where the brilliant play

The time differences on this site are unacceptable [In reply to] Can't Post

I intend to write a strongly worded letter to the administration.
It is completely unfair that we miss the best bits just 'cause we are in a different time zone. Mad
