Topic merge rules??

Recommended Posts

Sry, I am a new user. Can someone please kindly explain to me the topics merge rules or the logic behind it.

This topic "    
Ilhan Omar campaign strategist's wife claims Omar is having an affair with her husband" has been merged with "The road to 2020" (2020 United States presidential election). Then, this 3 topics "Snopes is Utter Crap/Kamala Harris is Likely Descended from Slave Owners" and  "Bernie Sanders, at 77, Just Learning the Basics - Socialism is an Epic Failure", and "The Squad Trip To Israel Cancelled" have their own threads. In addition, I lost my reply as well.

TIA

Your reply was not lost. 

It did lost. I am not lying. My reply was "it seems that she uses  "some people did something" describe 9/11, not illegal parking" , and it was gone after you megred the topic.

And your call base on what?   Last time I chect, she didn't run for the whitehouse. Now, you megred the thread, and my topic is hijacking the old thread. Do you understand what thread hjjacking mean?

I find Charles Anthony to be the best moderator I've ever encountered on the internet, even when I think he's being excessive, it's still good moderating in relation to most moderated forums.

So? Can you kindly enough to explain this one please.

I don't know, IMO,  it is odd that you need to pull up someone history to justify his current act.:rolleyes:

I defer to his judgement, frankly, I think his intuition is better than mine when it comes to moderation.

If he sanctions me, I just acknowledge and move on, there's an endless number of threads, none of them are precious per se.

All moderation is arbitrary, it's like being a Ref in hockey, it's a judgement call and the players usually gripe about it, but the Refs just have to move on.

I don't like video review, let the Refs call the game, even when I curse them.

What I don't like is if there is ideological bias and/or favoritism, but again, in my estimation, Charles Anthony makes a good faith effort to call the plays without trying to decide the outcome of the game.

Which is all you can really ask from the Refs in the end.

Ya, I usually will let it go, but this one is so offside. It's even worse than Cody Eakin's major or matt duchene's goal. C'mon, by not making a correct call, Refs already affects the outcome of the game.

There is a board administrator, he's like the director of referees, it's his job to regulate Charles Anthony, I just jump over the boards and play my shift, it's not my place to tell the Refs how to suck eggs.

Moreover, as I've seen what moderating is like on the internet in general, so if I was board admin, I would think Charles Anthony was elite, so I wouldn't fire him.

Unless they are firing Charles Anthony, they pretty much have to defer to his judgement as well, it's unlikely that being the moderator of this forum is well compensated.

If Charles Anthony decides he's got better things to do, I'd bet we'd get stuck with a real dickhead as the new moderator, so I don't look a gift horse in the mouth,

SHORT VERSION: Write a better Opening Post next time that clearly defines and limits the discussion you wish to provoke. 

If you think my intervention is unfair, send Greg, Admin and Owner, a message and ask him to order me to reverse the merger.

Your reply is here:

I think she is safe. First of all, she religiously married Ahmed Hirsi in 2002. Then, she married Ahmed Nur both religiously and legally after she had a religious divorce. In 2011, Omar and Elmi divorced religiously, but remained married legally. In 2012, Omar and Hirsi reconciled (no stoning here) and had a third child. In 2017, Omar legally divorced Elmi, and the following year, she legally married Hirsi. Now, I don't believe that guy is muslim. So, she only commits adultery legally, not religiously.

It seems self-evident to me.

Ask anybody you know in real life to read your opening post Ilhan Omar campaign strategist's wife claims Omar is having an affair with her husband and tell you what that has to do with United States of America Politics [Discuss various political issues affecting the United States] and let us know how that works out. 

Afterwards, I will tell you why I merged it into The road to 2020 thread.

Why ?  Do you think your topic is "special" ?   Topics get merged on a regular basis...no big deal.

Don't like it ?   Then seek true love elsewhere.....

So there you go, that's what the Refs in the NHL do, if a player is really squawking, they come over and give you a quick explanation, as a courtesy.

All is well.

Are you telling people that I am lying here., I am saying this reply (as I mentioned about)"it seems that she uses  "some people did something" describe 9/11, not illegal parking"  which I was replying this comment. 

shxt happened, may be a bug. You did not need to make up staff to cover the mistake.

First of all, did you read the news itself or you just think this is TMZ and skip it? The news was on nbcnews' politics-news section, Washingtion Examniner's news, inquistir's US politics section. nypost's news section, Huffpost's politics section, national reivew's POLITICS & POLICY section ....

If that is the case, you need to merge all other threads (I mentioned) to that thread. C'mon, if you want users not making dems look moralless, just say so.

Yeah can someone tell us why these two  VERY DIFFERENT TOPICS were merged?

This causes a LOT load of confusion for me and Egghead who were both wondering what the hell happened to the thread.

It happened, we know it happened, we need an explanation as to WHY and now we need both threads separated again.

Agreed, though he's never "excessive", imo. People deserve what they get. Don't like it? Grow some hair.

C'mon give me a break, did you think I would act without fact checked as you or are you thinking people are stupid? look at the time stamp. I went through 3 pages to assure that the reply was gone, and I reposted the reply (I omitted "not illegal parking" so that I knew that it was a repost). As, I said before, it is not a big deal. Just own it.

P.S. you can go over the backend db or traffic log, it should show up.

I did. I gave you the best advice you will ever get on the internet: Ask somebody in real life to read what you wrote. 

 

 

If you want to discuss public soap operas and circus acts of popular figures, feel free to start a group in the Clubs sub-forum and have at it.  Next time, I will enforce the forum Rules and Guidelines
