It seems at least a few of the Mods and Devs of Mourning have been here and some have been un-wise enought to attempt to surpress the discussion being had here. The people who 6 weeks ago were being labled trolls and flamers are now looking more and more like prophets every day.
The point is this.
The reason 90% of what has been posted by the "visitors" from Mourning doesnt last and is deleted or picked apart very quickly here is that they do not seem used to the art of having to construct valid arguments that stand scrutiny.
After months of deleting everything they found "rude" on their boards they now have very few skills to participate in, or construct arguments that will be validated by any weight of evidence on these boards.
You see the people who post on MMO are courageous in their own way. We know that unless you post something REALLY offensive here, then your post wont be deleted and you will have to live with what you typed and support and defend it to the other thinking minds.
I applaud the Mods of these boards and I applaud the regular posters here. 99% of what we write is our genuine thoughts and feelings. We write them after much research and thought, (Arcarius, Bitey, Grunch) are examples of people who post controversial but largely incontravertable stuff. You may not agree with, or like what they, or I or anyone else posts, but you can bet they put a lot of effort into it and that unless you research just as hard you wont be able to contradict it.
On these boards we take our reputations relatively seriously and know we are going to have to live with the things we type.
I actually think you encourage your community to really start typing trash when you start deleting every second post. I mean who cares what you type if you know its gonna be gone in 5 minutes. Consequently people try to get their BIG message accross in loud and ugly ways, like using bad language in the subject lines etc.
The Mourning forums are full of that now (although the last 24 hours seems to have been some improvement). Angry people trying to vent in the very format they should be allowed to vent in are being made even more "venty" by denying them the opportunity. So they come here and the result is that MMO ends up being a dumping ground of the negative posts about Mourning.
It makes it seem like everyone from MMO is just here to talk negatively about the game. When really its just a self generated phenomena of the official board management.
The results of the current state of discusion about this topic are those created by the desicions made by the people runing the Mourning community itself. No one else created this situation. Mourning people, If you want to see where the problem is then look in the mirror.
As a manager I have to take responsibility in my workplace when something I was supposed to be managing goes pear shaped. Whether I feel its my fault or not, Its part of the job as a manager to step up and accept responsibility when stuff happens on your watch. Any and every action that tries to do something other than that is called "making excuses"
Well all I can say about the frustration of the Mourning managers at these boards are :
"You reap what you sow"
<small footnote> I dont intend this to be provocative to the Mourning Mods, just my opinion of how things got this bad. Also Spoon and Natty. You came here under your own identities and posted logic, you also are not being aimed at here.
