    Ohhhhhhhh kay... Irony here is that this is quickly evolving into the catalog poster of a thread that needs some ice water thrown on it. Bonus irony is that I'm the one who has to try to make my way to the fridge.


    Please put your knives away, folks. Thanks.

    So sarcasm aside - you admit that you did lie about deleting threads, which you have now moved to the Boredom section. Great to have a dishonest and sarcastic mod around this place isn't it?

    And boo-hoo to you @IronPaw you don't know shit about my life. How about having my mother die after childbirth and no record of a father. That's just the first week of my story but you don't see me bringing any of that shit up here looking for sympathy.. unlike some people. So go keep blowing your own horn.

    Don’t ever call me a cuck you cum sock. I’ve given my wife more orgasms than you’ll ever give in your measly life.

    You gotta work on your vocabulary a little bit pal.. it's called "tennis" look it up. "Try reading a book sometime" "Sit Down" "Karreennnn" and other quotables you're familar with.

    How is being able to produce the thread that I said we moved any indication of having told a lie? How would I have recreated it, anyway, if I'd banished it to the aether?

    Here's a little brick of mine from it:
    Meant it then, mean it now.

    The dishonesty here is astounding! I've searched for that thread for two days since it was "moved"... I searched for it using the same methods after your smug "Tah-Dah" post and magically it appears. I don't know how deletion works etc but it hasn't been there for days.

    This is some Omen shit... just rename toothaction 'Damien' at this point. Glad the rest of you accept a cocky, holier than thou and worst of all a lying underhanded person like David as a mod around here. No wonder this place has turned to shit.

    Missed a few posts while I was typing out the last one. Nasty ones. Not even talking about the ones disparaging me.


    You've won, Glenn - you get to roll around on the comfy blankie of having seen yet another thread locked.

    Glenn, David never deleted anything. There is a moderator-only section of the board that is for the discussion of issues on Skullbrain that need attention. Issues such as flippers, flame baiters, scammers, that time that a former mod went overboard and deleted bansheebot's entire profile and posts, etc. are handled there. When threads are getting out of hand they are sometimes locked down, and sometimes when the content needs to be reviewed, those threads will be moved to that moderator-only area of the board. While there, they appear to be removed, but they are still intact. So when David said that he didn't delete any threads, he was telling the truth. He temporarily moved the threads so they could be reviewed and discussed. After the aforementioned bansheebot incident several years ago, I made sure that nobody would run around deleting things anymore.

    As for threads that were locked and/or moved, there was discussion among the moderators (including myself) recently about whether they were getting too heated. We all agreed that things were getting to the level of personal attacks and threats (sort of like what's happening in this thread), and that the threads needed to be locked down. With everything happening in the world right now, a lot of people are out looking for fights, and that's not what Skullbrain is for. Skullbrain is an online forum for people to discuss collecting vinyl toys. So I made the call that those threads should be closed until further notice. When David locked and/or moved those threads and new ones in the same vein, he was doing as he was asked to do.

    David, Steve, and David are all doing the best they can to moderate Skullbrain, and they're doing it on their own time. There is zero compensation whatsoever for the amount of care and time that they pour into this place, and they handle a lot more than they get credit for. A LOT of discussion about the issues happens out of public view, and I can guarantee that the three of them do what they can to keep themselves in check by discussing issues with each other when things get out of hand. This thread, for example, has been discussed and was ultimately locked – not because it's a Glenn thread or because it's an anti-mod thread, but because a couple members started hurling heavier and heavier stones at each other. And nobody wins in an internet forum pissing contest.

    Nobody has a vendetta against you Glenn. I have a vendetta against vitriol and unwarranted aggression, and I believe that the threads in question are breeding grounds for exactly that kind of mentality. It's one thing to vent about getting a ticket or about someone on eBay who's flipping stuff, but it's another thing to start swearing at and attacking each other on a toy forum over personal societal or political views. That doesn't belong here.

    Stop attacking the staff. They really care about this place and just want people to be able to enjoy it. And stop playing the victim. What is gained by constantly saying things like this?
    If you don't want negative attention from the mods, why would you constantly remind them that you might be bending the rules or crossing the line? I'll repeat what I said – nobody has a vendetta against you, we're just trying to keep Skullbrain somewhat civil. It really, really, really shouldn't be this hard to keep it civil.

    Skullbrain is a toy collecting forum. 99% of the people here just want to post about the toys that they like and see other toys that they might like and talk about toys that other people like and get excited about new toys. And sure, even vent about toys that they hate (WITHOUT personally attacking the makers or fans). Can't it just be that?

    Well said James. Thank you for letting us see behind the curtain a bit. I think it's helpful to understand the process a bit more.
    Personally, I very much appreciate the moderation and the time and effort it must take (out of the kindness of your heart and a passion for this community). I would hate for the community to get shut down because the moderators are tired of dealing with the hassle. Personally, I don't know anybody outside of the online world that collects these grown man baby dolls so this is my only outlet.

    I would also venture to guess that if we looked back in recent history it would be less that 1% of the members that are causing 99% of the moderators workload. My suggestion would be to have some concrete suspension rules for the board to eliminate this extra work for the moderators and to provide transparency, expectations and regulations for the users. Example (create the times as you see fit) : First offense - 6 week ban Second offense 12 week ban Third offense one year ban. And automatic lifetime bans for offenses that are already outlined in the rules.

    It would be nice to be able to eliminate the feeling of subjectivity that some members are discussing by implementing concrete consequences for behavior that breaks the rules of the community. And selfishly, I also want to create as little work as possible for the mods so that this board will continue indefinitely.

    That's probably the most interesting thread on the entire forum these days.

    I miss Alice.

    Kinda gross seeing the word “Cuck” getting thrown around here, it seems to be the alt-right’s new favorite insult. Not accusing anyone of living that lifestyle but I would just consider using a different word. :?

    I found the fuck you fuck you thread honestly helped to relieve some stress and was pretty cathartic when I didn’t want to turn to those in my immediate circle to whinge about things. I wouldn’t want to make it a habit running to it each time I got a booboo but I do appreciate all those involved. Shame we can’t play nice but eh if everyone’s happy to bury it then no problemo, thanks for when it was there.
