So I guess entertainment is more important than intellectualism. If you read Drexel's forecasts, you wouldn't be dismissing them. And predictions aren't there to show us a window into the future, it's to prepare us and warn us of what could happen.

Hey, if my choices are between happiness and "enlightenment", I'll take being happy.

It's certainly my business.
And it's my business whether or not I care that Google knows it.

Nah, there were cases where you were legitimately being an ♥♥♥hole to someone because they had a differing view. Not this case.
I would like to see these cases, since I consider myself to be pretty amicable for the most part.

Around here the two are pretty synonymous. If you aren't liked, you're ostracized. If you are, WELCOME TO THE FORUM.

It doesn't matter. He's a mod. He shouldn't be acting like how I'm acting. Additionally, the other mods/admins shouldn't just skim this thread and go like o w/e its k. Both Duh102 and TheLastBanana did so in the peak of the argument.
You seem to misunderstand the mods.
We're not really here to be nice. We're here to keep the peace. As long as raw insults and racial slurs aren't being slung, then there isn't much reason for a mod to step in.
We are still people too, who like and dislike people. Nothing tells us we can't argue and yell at people too, we just usually don't have to since the mods are overall a pretty level headed group, and when someone DOES piss them off, it's for a Moderator action worthy reason.
Admittedly, this IS pretty off topic, which IS a reason for Mod action..

Also, I'm a FORUM GAMES mod. I keep the peace in FORUM GAMES. Aside from the fact that the definition of us mods isn't one that restricts us from arguing, I am only a mod in FORUM GAMES. You post in there, you follow my rules.
You post anywhere else, I am equal to you.

That's what is really comes down to. No use trying to argue against it more. Some people prefer being "happy".

The joke was you use stupid memes. Stop using stupid memes.

Most times they get deleted. But if I had the time to read through The Lounge, then I'd provide you with examples.

You're not keeping the peace. Ad homenim is raw insult. There is reason for a mod to step in. Nobody is telling you to be poor examples, it just kind of happens. Seraph and yourself aren't level headed, but Duh and Banana are I suppose. Deserves moderation, but isn't off topic. I'm expressing my reasons to not use Google Chrome, and by extension, Google. I didn't say you specifically had to moderate this thread, it's out of your section, I just implied you were being a bad example.

Sothe I don't think you get this;

He's not a mod.
Yes it says Moderator under his name but he actually isn't allowed to do anything except enforce game rules in the forum games subforum.
He's not an authority figure.
If you want someone to take mod action then report his posts.

Also for God's sake stop criticising people for using ad hominem arguments when ad hominem arguments are 20% of the content of every post you make in this topic.
How hypocritical can you be?

When I pointed out there was ad homenim in the thread I was mainly referring to my posts.
It's not that I'm being hypocritical. I recognize both our posts got ad homenim all over. And I recognize *most of my posts have ad homenim.
Okay fine he's not an authority figure. Just somebody I don't like then.

* = most of my posts that you notice

Ah right fair enough then, I had been crediting with you with enough sense not to stand in front of the moderating team shouting "come at me bro" and waving a red cape but
I guess I was wrong.

I'm not HERE to keep the peace.

Oh what was that about Ad Hominem? And I've yet to see this elevate to the level of insulting each other.
Had I been calling you a stupid faggalicious trollshit, that'd be different. This that we've got going on right now? This is pretty much banter.

Seraph's a british drunkard, but I wouldn't say he's not level headed. Heavy handed maybe, but I don't think I've seen him punish someone undeserving of SOME punishment.
I'm totally prone to flipping my ♥♥♥♥ on the other hand. Hell, if a day goes by where I don't use half the rainbow of swears I'm probably in a coma.

I think we can pretty safely say this has devolved into an argument between you and me, not really about Chrome anymore.

How am I a bad example? Go to Forum Games, look around for anywhere I've moderated in there. When I'm doing my job, I'm impartial, speak calmly and try to be polite, and I get things done.
When I'm NOT being a mod, aka anywhere outside of Forum Games, you can't really judge me on that, because I am NOT a mod. I am a user just like everyone else here.

So I guess I'm an idiot for calling out the mods, or admit that I was doing something wrong.
I guess I can't tell the mods something is wrong when it is.

Like I said in my previous post, seriously I know both sides ad homenim come on I'm not a parrot

I guess it's just my preference in mods. He just comes off as a little too authoritarian over irrelevant things.
Yeah I'm sort of the same way, except I don't vent that much.

Well at this point there's no reason to go on because I already dislike you. But I admire your zeal. That's something not everyone on this forum has.

I was referring to this thread, but then I was corrected because you're like other users when you're outside forum games.

Yeah pretty much all of my last post was typed up and posted while Metal and you posted that other one.
The one flaw of making big quotewall posts.

Yeah it'd be easier to do it in a chatroom.
Usually threads with wall posts in them are big turn offs.

The rest was fun.

I never really understood the fairly widespread internet preoccupation with emotional state.
Quite often people have every right to be angry when discussing a serious issue, and it does not make their points any weaker unless they resort to hyperbole which is just as common from a relatively calm person.

It's in the art of war. To paraphrase, if you can find a way to annoy someone, keep doing it. Most people get that responding to tone or emotional state annoys people.
