what about daily "bumping up my post" posts?

No more than once daily. You shouldn't bump a post too many times in a row. Bumping shouldn't be annoying. Delete old "bump" posts so they don't clutter up the topic.

Interesting policy. I consider pure bump posts very very rude. If I can't make up any """news""", I don't bump my threads.

If bumping is all fine with the mods, could you please introduce a checkbox "bump up once per day" so I can bump it without cluttering it with "/bump" posts? Aka I don't agree with pure bumping being all fine as it is the opposite of the often requested feature of rating posts and threads.

1. Free speech
5. No NSFW content

Please read 5, then read 1, then read 5, then read 1 and tell me if you see a problem.

Can I say "fat cock" if I present it in a calm and polite manner?


I like Alex A+. There needs to be a place for people to say what ever they want. Then there needs to be a place that is women and young person friendly. The newbie forum would be a excellent place for full rule enforcement the trading forum not so much. If you can let the people know clearly what kind of room their in they will generally self regulate the content. If we develop and area for "serious" transactions that is clearly marked with expected behavior clearly posted then you wont have to spend so much time micromanaging.

The policy to not remove anything worked when the forum was small. Now that we have thousands of posts a day, we can't afford 50% of them being junk. The moderators are now instructed to be less tolerant of low-value posts.

Some guidelines:

1. Free speech - you can say anything as long as it is relevant and presented in a calm and polite manner. Swearing, SHOUTING etc. make your post more likely to be removed.
2. No zero value posts or threads, like "SELL SELL SELL"
3. No pointless or uninteresting threads.
4. No referral code spam
5. No NSFW content

A step in a wrong direction. Now moderators will decide which posts have "low value", which posts are "uninteresting" or "pointless". In practice moderators will delete everything they don't like. The words "free speech" above are thus an obvious lie.


Completely agree. I think the moderator is on a power trip and definitely giving more favor to larger companies. I asked the moderator  in the general discussion to please clarify why some service announcements are allowed (eg. Dentist accepting Bitcoin, Bitpay announcements, etc.) and others are moved to the services announcement page.

My request to clarify post was promptly moved to the "other/meta" thread. lol. I think there's a kickback system going on here. I will be starting a reddit post to try to give this more attention. New services are being shutout at the discretion of the moderator.

Limited Liberty is ok. Too much of Liberty is dangerous as it may affect the interests of other members. Anything may be stated as long as the interests of a majority of members are not affected.

After 9 years regular army and a lifetime as an interstate truck driver, I believe I've heard it all, but expletive suffused posts still drive me spare, so I excersise my own form of moderation, if you can't express yourself in a Proper manner than I will simply ignore your post, no matter how relevant, informative or interesting it may be.

I've been part of ( and still am) many forums where offensive language is simply not tolerated, likewise with personal attacks involving race, creed, colour or religion, sexual proclivities or otherwise, yet the debate still remains robust.

Free speech by all means, but with free speech comes responsibility too and a limitless courtesy and respect go a long way.

I think it's kinda borderline.  We'll see if we get any complaints first.

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the systems was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank...sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

Main thing I ever see enforced is a loose concept of "scammer" with tags being applied to various users for various reasons which don't seem to be well documented in a conspicuous way / nowhere I've seen in forums explains the exact definition of scammer (comprehensively or otherwise)

I'm glad you don't see moderation. I hate it when moderation is intrusive on forums.

Like when the mods imposed their own ideologies in the sidebar of r/bitcoin? And refused to remove it even though a clear majority wants to get rid of them?

Yeah, I hate that too.

I find the trust system and its future implementation quite intrusive.

Banning people for insults etc. is a one way trip to making the forum deserted, considering how vague rules usually are it means you could get banned for calling a moderator out for being a power tripping douchebag, I can't believe how many people are missing the ignore function, it's perfectly easy to use and great at blocking people from annoying you when you're having a discussion.

Are moderators really reading through every post to determine if its valuable or not?  How do we call attention to posts that really suck?  Can we ban people of low intelligence?  Is it right to do so?

We could, but no, that wouldn't be proper.

I've no interest in participating in any forum whose rules take longer than 3 seconds to read.

But yes, subjectivity is your main problem: a lot of uninteresting posts are entertaining, a lot of entertaining posts are uninteresting.

Repeat ad nauseum.

Would hate to see this please get legislated into oblivion.
