More seriously though, the rules are put in place for two reasons, one is to prevent illegal content, and the other is to filter content that may be offensive and/or damaging to the forum's average userbase. And to be honest, good old vets, while respected, are not the one and only userbase here. We have newbies, and youngsters, so some things are just a no-no simply because of that. And it may be weird to some of you guys, but with such rules we have to account for many things. I imagine Soth had the best interest of the forum and quality of content in mind. While the general counterargument here is that "this is spam, no quality control here". But again, I find it difficult to care about the pun threads in any way. To me it was pretty much one of the most insignificant fads we've had here since the "I am offended" threads, and whether these threads exist or don't is so mighty unimportant to me that I cannot see myself actually taking a stand in this argument.
And for something so insignificant this sure did manage to make me type and awful lot. Which is a bit disappointing. I could even say "you got me".
Well played. I guess.
