If it is completely taken away the whole thread may turn sour and mean spirited.
Far too many people take themselves and what they say too seriously on this forum, hence they deserve to be ridiculed at some stage. Its an internet forum for f sake if they don't want to be in here get the f out don't reply etc..

P*ss taking is essential!

It appears that the only member who can quote themselves is "thehog" if you try it (quote yourself) and make a joke about it being thehog's SOP then the post is deleted.

It is to bad someone got their feelings hurt over something simple as that.

You do know how to report posts to the mods, yes? Please feel free to do so.

Thank you.

With all due regards, you well know that a skilled troll is difficult to "report". Trolling at its finest is an art form, and we have a few of these artists right here on CN forums. Subtle, twisted circular logic - but with a clear objective of destroying a thread and any intelligent discussion in order to defend/protect certain special interests.

A classic example is the famous LauraLyn. Had me fooled for a long time, yet he/she was finally banned for trolling. Any one post was almost impossible to report, it was l'ensemble de son œuvre that was so compelling.

There is the problem right there. The original mods would read the forum so they knew what was going on. Moderation by simply looking at reported posts does not work well. We get idiocy like ferryman thinking he needs to respond to a Sky homer complaining about The Hog patting himself on the back while mountainbpc has spent the last few weeks making one idiotic post after another.

I don't think it was idiocy but I hear you.
