Serious question: are you retarded?

I was a moderator when we had the Volcanic Asteroid, and because people didn't respect the authority Krang had given me and I only had moderation abilities for that section, it didn't last long. People who didn't agree with the decision to make me a moderator purposefully tried to cause problems/havoc.

@CanadianDrome: What are you even talking about?
You don't become a mod because you're a super fan....

Maybe the current events section needs to be closed down. Keep the TV/movies section, Videogames, and maybe the Everything Else forum. Close the rest of it down.

I'm guessing all threads but those are public, except those in groups?

Just keep em. If you can't take the heat, stay out of that kitchen. I barely ever visit the current event forums so I'm not getting triggered and calling for a safe place.

Drama only works if someone starts it and if someone is looking for it. Break the chain and you end the drama.

hence why the ignore button is your best friend of defense. you don't have to see the constant nasty insults. if only people used it both ways.

thicker skin only works to an extent. if people are constantly nasty, constantly insulting, constantly looking for a fight, that'll wear down even the toughest skin after a while.

Can we at least NUKE this thread?
My stomach turns just looking at it and the insides of it are already awful, some of the worst the drome has seen in the past decade

More reasons why the non-TMNT sections should be shut down, threads are going out of control and people are going crazy:

The Star Wars Episode 8 thread is nothing but mindless bickering and back and forth:

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/sho...=54544&page=65

This thread about a transexual Lois Lane being cast in Supergirl speaks for itself:

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=59421

Current Events has mind boggling threads going on like this one:

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=59342

The Sexual allegations thread filled with insane posts:

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=59129

And Vegita-san being Vegita-san

http://forums.thetechnodrome.com/showthread.php?t=58953


It's time, SHUT IT ALL DOWN.






At least for a little while. It's time.

Once again, I agree. Maybe a temp-lock trial run?

Shut it down. This entire site has gone down the drain in the past 2 years. It's the same f*cking 8 people arguing and quiping at each other. And it's not even fun to watch- just annoying.

Just don't engage.
It's that simple.

So the creepo who wrote "A day in May" gets to call the shots?

How does a pedophile get to call the shots, exactly?

Stop bringing up that fanfiction.

Bringing it can be funny in a different context, but you are just using it for Ad Hominem.

1. Its not child porn. No real children were involved and CyberCubed isn't a criminal for writing it (even though I personally dislike the fic itself).

2. Its still irrelevant to CyberCubed's point about the non-tmnt sections of the drome. You have no other arguement other than to use Ad hominem attacks against him.

3. You're only proving CyberCubed's point about the non-tmnt sections of the drome needing to be shut down by making a thread about Trans Lois then accusing anyone who disagrees with you as a hateful Transphobic.

Again, y'all could have just not engaged.
Or if you needed to engage, say to counter the concept of complicity by way of silence, Then There are a multitude of ways to do that that don't implicate yourself as holding transphobic views.

I just find it funny that cubed wants the Drome closed when he is just as responsible for making provocative threads.

Again, I'm gonna vote no. If you don't like the conversation taking place in a thread, just step away. It can be frustrating or hard to do, but there are better places on the Internet to engage in sociopolitical discussions if people here can't be civil.

Currently I only read the IDW comics and the updates regarding Rise of the TMNT are few and far between so I enjoy having other topics to discuss on the site, as long as peple can keep it light. Maybe we need new/more mods here or a revamped set of rules to enforce appropriate behavior
