I read the sticky Gabe posted in M2. It seems this is an act taken to speed up the fora rather than something punitive. At least he has the decency to warn M2 people to save their favorite threads...it's more decency than he showed pit denizens.

I'd like to think he's learnt something from his handling of the Pit.

Somehow, and despite numerous emails from me (mostly unacknowledged), I think that the warnings are more to do with the mods than with Gabe. You don't go from being a PR nightmare to a PR success overnight.

Why are they deleting it? To make the other 2 forums faster? Or is M2 getting replaced?

Its not a full deletion, its more of a cleansing. M2 will still be there, but most of the old threads will be gone. Post count whores are crying their eyes out, but most of us agree that this is the best way to handle the situation.

I never quite understood the people who like having many [as in over 1000] posts. If anything, I prefer having my posts low so I can continue to duck the feds, if possible.

It's all about status. Like they can say 'I'm the biggest dork', or something.

Or not, as the case ended up.


And yet we still had to endure a passing moron.

:Realises everyone looked at him when Joker said the words "...post count whores...":

What? I entertain....

Upon the subject, I am happy that there is pain to those whole cryed about their posts, those who took the time to make more than one paragraph, however, I sympathise for them.

Hrm.... It seems that Gabe decided that M2 was not to be deleted, got pissed off at Psilar for some reason, removed him from Mod status, then reinstated him.

From what Ive seen, I think that the cleansing is happening as we speak, because only Mods and Admins are allowed to post.
