Default USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST (a.k.a. my €0.02 that noone asked for)

Like most of us care... if he was banned because he was spamming why let the spam stay and just add <USER WAS BANNED FOR THIS POST> ?

Why not just soft-delete it so that other mods\admin can see why the post was deleted and the user banned?

Do you need to show that you can ban people? Not like the spam bots will care.

And getting rid of all that sh*t will most defenitely (misspell?) make the search engine go a lot better in the future...

Some of you should really learn how to be an *effective* mod. Also, some of you could also be a little less 4chantards when your not in 4chan.

um ditto

The threads Lillymon closed don't really serve any purpose either. I always soft-delete threads that shouldn't have existed in the first place and sometimes send a private message instead of posting.

Well, I've been deleting the spam posts that I moderate. I didn't really see the point in them cluttering up/interrupting the threads since they were only spam bots.

3 words for you.

Freedom of Speech.

It's f*ckin hard to hear people tell you the mistakes you make and knowing that they're right isn't it?

Technically, freedom of speech only applies to the government, and Zophar's Message Domain is a private establishment. I'm willing to entertain changes to my moderation style, but that's me. Reaper man gets to be an ass about it because he does so much moderation work he's making the rest of us look bad by comparison.

Well, at least, it's a warning for the other users. A new user could see the post and refrain from making this type of post after seeing that someone else got banned for doing the same.

Those edits, unlike the older ones, actually make sense.
