White Gold Wielder
Steward of Minas Tirith
Citizen # 2

Idea-generator that I am, I came up with this clever topic for reporting threads that used to be interesting and shouldn't be deleted, but have since devolved into endless bickering.

Feel free to chide the individuals for their lack of maturity and for giving the steward a hard time. He already has enough children to take care of!

Well I was considering taking the obvious bait to nominate this thread, but I think instead it should be archived somewhere and nominated for most amusing thread. []

Condoned flaming, eh?

Well, you're horrible people. Honestly, I don't know how you live with yourselves. You bring shame to MT. Do you have no respect for the Steward? Are you lacking in advanced cognitive ability, et cetera?

I may very well be the only MTer who holds this opinion, but I think this thread:

http://www.minastirith.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=16;t=000081;p=1#000000

Scores high on the suckitude meter. After something like two years, the gag is tired, tired, tired. []

At the very least, it doesn't belong in the Ivy Bush. Is there anyway to move it to the Log or the Perch?

Indeed I think you are the only MTer who holds that opinion, I for one think the thread is quite funny, but i agree with you it does not belong in the Ivy Bush.

Thanks, Silmahtar. Perhaps you can petition WGW to move it to a forum you consider appropriate. Barring that, I could always save the thread, and delete it from the Ivy Bush. Though I was hoping it could keep "middle earth pickup lines", and the threads about WGW's citizen number and the age of MT citizens, company.

EDIT: And oh, yes don't forget...

Oh, jeez, here we go. Buckle up kids, we're going on an ego trip. Please, spare me the dramatics. As far as I'm concerned, those threads should be somewhere else too.

Dramatics? Really? []

Oh, I see, if I defend the thread, it's an "ego trip", and I need to "chill". Never mind that you had the option of asking me, or WGW, to delete, or move, the offending thread privately, and yet you chose to do so publically, including insults to demonstrate your derision. I suppose it's not an "ego trip" to expect that a forum on a message board (that someone else created) conforms to your own standards? []

First of all, it's not your thread like you have ownership rights over it. Secondly, defend the thread, don't get defensive about it. You are taking this personally. I'm not the one who told you to chill, either.

I think it's played out and not for the Ivy Bush. Others don't think so. Am I flinging barbs at them for disagreeing? No.

Again with the dramatics. Hyperbole is more like it. When did I EVER say that I expect MT to conform to my standards?

Is it possible that people are confusing the word 'deletion' for 'derision'?
