Why there's no more posting in the HoS

Over time, it's devolved into a place where some get laughs at the expense of others, and we don't feel that's right.

The forum is still going to stick around as a place to look at the really weird stuff that gets posted. However, you won't have a chance to comment anymore. Sorry, but we feel it's in everyone's best interests.

Happy browsing, though! There's still plenty of ridiculous things deserving of your private ridicule.

    I don't give a shit that I can't post in there.

    I do, however, give a shit that the posts in there now are basically the reason it was closed to everyone else.

    It was supposed to be all or nothing, and I prefer the nothing option.

    Well, as someone who never felt that it should have been closed period, I can't relate to the "nothing" approach whatsoever.

    If I had my way it would be "all," but never "nothing..." never ever ever.

    I'm not saying I wouldn't like it to be open again. I'm just saying that evkl's post made it seem like there would be no posts, which is definitely not the case. That's what I have issue with.

    I blame the bad trollers and the crybabies for ruining it for the rest of us... sadly though, reopening it wouldn't solve that... but at the same time I refuse to stop posting in there myself when I still have the ability to...

    While the mod circlejerk in there is somewhat disturbing, I'd rather them take it there than to the general userbase. Besides, everyone else just mastermemted all over the place there. It was just as stupid, possibly moreso, than the topics themselves!

    Reopening it would allow users like Snorlaxmonster in.

    Worst. Outcome. Possible.

    Honestly, I don't really see mods or admin posting in there too often, it's actually very dead compared to how the HoS used to be... so circlejerk is a little bit offensive.

    Although I wouldn't mind a good circlejerk....wait, I didn't just say that, did I?

    Well, whatever you wanna call it, it is still better than when everyone could post there.

    The admins are being hypocritical. If it's in "everyone's best interests" that it should be closed, maybe the admins should consider it closed to them too. Unless they can provide a logical, reasonable arguement as to why they should be allowed to post in the HoS, this is how I stand.

    Because they can. There's the logic.

    I don't see why it can't be made a private forum if the admins want to post in it alone.

    That wouldn't stop it from being a low-brow pocket of elitism, but at least we wouldn't have to see it.

    Also thumbs up to Blazevoir.

    Okay... thanks for calling me a hypocrite... and if enjoying myself is being a hypocrite... then yeah, I am.
