A Modest Proposal For Moderation: Consolidation Of Silliness!Submitted by LibBerte on Sat, 04/10/2010 - 06:30
The satire is not found here, but in the emphatically titled cartoon threads started by Jackie and Dunlap type distraction trolls, bumped by tag team buddies and tounge-in-cheek snarkers, along with conscientious objectors, who then by their attention just feed the fraudsters inadvertently helping fools and psyops achieve the goal of clogging our boards with hyperbolic smoke which obscures the real fires raging.
Ironically, I am calling for moderators to be less moderate in allowing such titles to proliferate.
Pull them together as ' Paper Chase Thread', for example. Or, ' Brave New World For Patriot's Thread'.
Moderators -- you decide if you will allow all caps and twenty exclamations in the title. When these goofs begin littering other threads with impertinate questions like: " Isn't this just like Brave World Paper Chasing?" -- Don't strike the valid exchange by deleting content -- move the off topic or inciting post.
Valid discussion will work its way out of this hole without destruction of content. Disputes about title can be part of the discussion within pigeon holed threads until a value judgment neutral consensus emerges.
My hope would be this approach would take some of the wind out of the sail of these maurauding blowhards who presume to storm our decks to cut our throats.
