Psychologists says ... lets people talk and expresses their self ... otherwise soon we going to became followers of that guy ...




reminds me the tv movie called "the wave"

An experiment in an American High School where students learn how easy it is to be seduced by the same social forces which led to the horrors of Nazi Germany. Based on a true story.

It's unfair. You keep deleting my posts while I do not consider them off-topic at all, while I see so many off-topic posts everywhere on this forum being preserved. What are your OBJECTIVE PARAMETERS here?

An example, I have just sent a post to an OFF-TOPIC thread, with the intention to demonstrate appreciation in a funny way, because indeed, I like and I find it funny whenever I see that OP's (in that regarded thread) frequent (and also, some times off-topic, but whatever) comment:

Unfortunately that is not the only deleted post I had. And it was always unfair from my perspective.

I'm looking forward to a betterment of OUR forum.

Thank you.

Sorry to ask, I read in a topic by a staff(if I am right) that posts containing just '+1' or similar to it are considered as spam. So is the above post considered as scam? If it is, why isn't it deleted?

Edit:

IMO, such posts are considered as spam.  Try to avoid such posts.

I am baffled. I got a PM, apparently from "Bitcoin Forum on Bitcoin Forum" It says:

Aigeezer, is that Alan Turing or Joseph Goebbels in your avatar? The latter could do wonders for our Darkcoin marketing, taking it to a whole new level Smiley

Heh. It is Turing.

It included a link that said "Reply to this PM here". I drafted this reply:

-- draft reply start --

I do not understand why my reply was deleted. Please explain so that I can "In the future, please avoid posting things that need to be deleted."

From my perspective, I replied honestly and as briefly as I could to an annoying question directly addressed to me. Hard to avoid! I see that the question remains untouched on the site - making it appear that I never answered.

Thanks

-- draft reply end --

When I pressed "send" I got this in response: "User 'Bitcoin Forum' has blocked your personal message."

Now what?

Edit: Update, some 15 hours later. In the absence of any moderator feedback/explanation, I have answered the original question again: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=421615.msg9152190#msg9152190

There is no user Bitcoin Forum. That message is automated. Next time if you have question about your deleted post, post in Meta or PM to Global Moderators.

Thanks for the info. Reminder - the PM I received included an unresponsive link that said "Reply to this PM here", with no other instructions about recourse.

My posts are now being deleted without reason, 5 already. Everything I post.
No name given as to who, OR reason as to why.
Even replies to my own threads, so I'm on my own topic, are being removed.

Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon. Even if you win, they strut around, knock the pieces over and shit all over the place.

It take some time to get into the action but if you want a fast re-action from mod, report the post by clicking 'Report to moderator' situated at bottom-right. There is a high chance that the spams near to the reported one getting deleted. Smiley

there probably is a reason you can start a meta thread and get the attention of the moderator who deleted your posts and he will probably give you a explanation.

There is any way to star and/or grade a topic maybe could helps to "clean up"


Quite a good idea! What comes to my mind is the concept of marking, just like Poloniex did. Mark the good post and it'll be recorded on a ledger, maybe even could be calculated into activity score periodically. That might prevent all those "I like it", "+10", "I agree" empty comments needed moderation.

Trolls are becoming a huge problem throughout the forum for unknown reasons to me so far; maybe we're just sitting ducks. I'd propose the newbie jail v.2.0 where 3 older members could bring someone out by voting. If the new member has 0 posts, he won't be allowed into the main forum. If he's a troll we will know it sooner than he posts japanese naked men and homo pictures into a 14000 long page thread.

Roll Eyes. You can reply to threads in off-topic, just not with off topic replies IE discussing music in a thread about apples.

Is this to define as silencing if staff members allow offtopic and delete ontopic?

It seems like if definition of on/offtopic varies from user to user, there is no specific definition of what is offtopic and if you suggest splitting sentences into posts to void confusion, you will get even more bytes used by this forum and number of posts will grow, of course if you dont ban every user before.

What is offtopic and if it is forbidden why do I see it everywhere?

One thing to anyone that starts a thread here on the forum.

Make sure that you always mark the self-moderated box on any thread that you start.  Make sure that you watch your own thread and try to take part in it.

Many times the subject starts off as one thing and nature guides the thread into another subject that takes over and continues.  There are open threads on here about exchanges that closed 3 years ago and I still see them pop up.  That is because the subject went from that bad exchange into scamming and stealing and security and such and is still getting posts based on that last reply. 

If you self-moderate the thread, you have the ability to close it at anytime.  If you do not, that means the admins have to close it and there are way too many threads here to track and read them all.  If the subject wanders off-topic and stays there, post and let everyone know that you are going to open a new thread based on the new topic and because the OP has gotten lost in the thread, give them 24 hours notice.  Be nice, this is not you playing God, it is you guiding the forum users to a new thread that is titled more subject appropriate. Come back the next day, start the new thread, title it to make the new subject, tick the self-moderated box, and post the link as the last post in your old thread.  Read back to your announcement and make sure no one protested what you were doing and then, close the old thread. 

Also, if there is a single person posting off-topic and the rest are on-topic, you can delete their posts from a thread.  This is not a license to remove those comments that you do not like from the thread because you dislike the person or the comments are against your service or subject.  If you are selling a service/product/coin, it is a real important thing to show your people how you handled a client/complaint.  They all saw the reply before you deleted it and that is a bad way to show your business ethics.

If you start a self-moderated thread, I (and many others) will not post in it.
If the moderators questionably delete any of my posts, I can at least appeal against it in Meta.
In a self-moderated thread, I wouldn't even have that option.
