I mean, if I posted a one-word reply to something in a forum, then posted three paragraphs in invisitext beneath it, then I was warned for spam, I'd be a little concerned you'd missed three paragraphs of invisitext, but I'd understand. But if you then, once I had brought it up with you, genuinely continued to believe that my that three paragraph response is genuine spam, then I'd probly disagree.
Quote from Seppel »I love Joboman, Poggy, Niv, and Vezok, because, while they may not be the best players, they still try to win. Having fun is the most important thing to a game, but I've learned that if you don't try to win, then you're ruining everyone else's fun.
Quote from JayC »Now I had no job, and the truth was, I didn't want one. Unemployment took care of my Taco Bell and Cloves needs - and mom paid the rent and filled the refridgerator despite her nagging - so why get a job? The computer was all I really needed.
Quote from PuzzleFor reference, I and others saw Urzassedatives's invisitext, which disproves the underlined part, the base of your reasoning.
As for my record, you mentioned that mods check them before giving further infractions : that's why I want to keep it clean. Plus, I like to think myself a very respectable person and fight injustice.
Anyway, I'd suggest :
- putting all that into the rules.
- removing access to invisitext from users.
- considering the fact that this rule didn't exist at the time of the infraction to revise it in consequence.
As one-word posts are not necessarily spam (cf Nan), why is my post even infracted ? Even without the invisitext, it's a joke referring to Nan's April's Fools joke (joking disrespect of the rules by me vs. joking stupid rules by Nan).
Seriously, why is my post spam and Nan's April's Fools announcement not ?
If we are not supposed to answer jokingly to mod jokes, then that should also figure in the rules.
Somebody quote this please, Nan is on a post-deleting spree and I'd like my suggestions to be heard. [/joke, like in humor, etc]
Quote from CravenDoes invisi-text add anything to a thread? No, because it's invisible. Whoever reads that post will only see the visible text, and this is what matters. If that is spam, then the whole post is spam.
That's how we mods will handle similiar situations, and there's really no need to complain any longer - especially if you have never received such an infraction before.

Quote from NaiWhen the invisitext AND the visible text are both on the same line, you can't tell there's invisitext there. And that's where the problem lies with many posts.
Quote from ButteBluesShould not the true judge in regards to spam be based on the post's content in a vacuum outside of what is merely perceived at first?

Quote from creampuffeaterFirst of all Nai, the post was a damn joke. Come on... you seriously think we DONT know that you are infracting those? Also, if your gonna "JOKE" infract it, and not even see if its worth it, then it better not be a real infraction. But the fact that you just dont seem to care is what is pissing me off here. You dont need to check all posts for invisitextm but if you are INFRACTING one, wouldnt it help to check? O what is that a extra 10 seconds out of your precious life?.

Quote from Feuerdrache
Also, I would appreciate it if the general populace would give the staff some respect. I'm not saying that you have to agree with their decisions, but a little bit of respect for authority would go a long way.

Chances are, if said thread is not in Humor or the Gutter, it isn't a joke thread.
Quote from KeeperEUSC
I really don't understand this though. I think there are plenty of appropriate places on the forums to make jokes. We shouldn't all be sitting around as though we represent all things serious. Surely a forum mostly frequented by teens should be laid back, even if it's just slightly.
