Maybe I didn't read the rules well enough. Maybe I don't understand what off-topic really is.

Maybe I'll never know considering I never got a detailed reason for my 3 day off-topic ban but, hey, I am not entitled to anything. It's not like the people who own this forum are held to a moral standard. They can do whatever they want.

No sarcasm intended.

The Communists say, equal labour entitles man to equal enjoyment. No, equal labour does not entitle you to it, but equal enjoyment alone entitles you to equal enjoyment. Enjoy, then you are entitled to enjoyment. But, if you have laboured and let the enjoyment be taken from you, then – ‘it serves you right.’ If you take the enjoyment, it is your right.

Slightly longer answer:  It does the same thing as when you throw away a hundred dollar bill.  You lose money, and everyone else's money gains a little value.
Hardly, when money is created out of thin air every time a bank makes a loan.

I was questioning the example. The post was relevant but it's not up to my discretion, is it?

I used to work at Nordstrom. I guess I wasn't the only one, Theymos? Who authored this?

It's a reasonable approximation of board rules, which is why I left it. You can mostly get by on common sense here.

The comment of yours that I posted above isn't related to the OP in the slightest. This is what counts when determining whether something is on-topic. Normally I'd just delete posts like this, but I'm 99.9% sure you're Atlas, so you should be very familiar with board rules by now.

Theymos, some forums have a thread where it is posted who got banned, when and for what reason. Maybe you could do the same?

The link you posted is completely ON-TOPIC, unlike the post you made on this thread that is completely OFF-TOPIC. This reply is also OFF-TOPIC.

At the very least, it would be nice if the mods were made aware of who was banned. For those who don't know, right now the mods only know when someone was banned because of a request from another mod. We have no idea what theymos does on his own.

I have had like, half a dozen posts deleted from your thread there. Be happy that someone cares enough to moderate it.

No it's not relevant. The thread was about what happens to lost bitcoins and the ramifications regarding the economy, and you nitpicking at some little example in order to turn the thread into an unrelated politics/economics discussion is typical atlas, and coincidentally enough, exactly what you he was banned for previously (initially).

Theymos, some forums have a thread where it is posted who got banned, when and for what reason. Maybe you could do the same?
At the very least, it would be nice if the mods were made aware of who was banned. For those who don't know, right now the mods only know when someone was banned because of a request from another mod. We have no idea what theymos does on his own.

That would be nice. Could cut down on the trolling/oft/whatever once people see that hey, x did get banned for it.
