...that even the literal pointing out of facts now qualifies as "trolling."

Hugenberg wasn't a Nazi, just Nazi ally, used and then threw away, like von Papen.

Night of the Long Knives was a matter inside Nazi Movement. SA wasn't "neo-nazi" party. The closest thing was Black Front, but they actually disavowed Hitler, so doesn't really count.

But, while I disagree with your post, I don't understand this deletion.

Probably spamming the board with links is the infractable offense.

Someone please tell me that wormguy Photoshopped that. Please. I really can't take much more of this nonsense if that is infraction worthy.

     What isn't infractable these days? It seems like saying anything remotely controversial can get your stuff deleted.

Agreed. Something is wrong when such a blatant troll can run free for so long.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Hilariously, I have received infraction points for using the "I" word (and I don't mean Italian).

It amuses me that they vehemently deny that it ever existed!

Arguably, but the first two posts in that post chain are a better bet then. The links were just a ridiculous non sequitur, but...

It has never been denied. The Watch List has always been a part of moderation on this forum.

And then there's this, my friend...

We have no "List," as such.


Perhaps you guys should try to get on the same page. You're making this way too easy.

Gustaf's statement and mine don't contradict, if he's referring to what I think he is.

People have a right to be an idiots, so we can debunk their idiotic claims and somehow make a discussion more interesting.

If there's just a stupid statement, without trolling/insults/spam, I see no reason to delete it or to infract a poster.

I don't know why the "watch list" became a subject of such suprise and controversy. It's logical moderators are more likely to discuss about and observe the trolls, rather than some average, gray user.

I don't know how many times I have to explain that there is no tabulation of the sort you're implying. I'd be careful with throwing around such accusations. You never know if someone will take it the wrong way.
