Yesterday I posted a seemingly innocuous thread in the etc, etc forum titled eggcorns, mondagreens and malaproprisms and today I was surprised it see it had been merged with a similar thread, started, and last posted in 2006, five years ago by a member (stronzo) who is now banned. So I have a question for the moderator/s who chose to devalue and denigrate my new thread (only my second or third thread start in the whole time that i have been a member here) by merging it without any consultation or public explanation in the tread itself. Why, when there are thread after thread on almost exactly the same topics which are never merged, would you choose to merge and subvert mine? Music to fuck to, music to make love to, music to have sex to, all posted within a few hours. Circumscision threads that repeat over and over the same topics. Not that I care. I read what interests me and ignore those that have been repeated or not of interest. It seems alliances and affiiations are all important at lpsg if you are to have your opinion heard. I have had disagreements of opinion in the past with some moderators. Once I reported a post by hillare which I thought was threatening (the only time I have reported someone). There was no response whatsoever Before I posted, I did a forum search on the title of my thread...eggcorns mondagreens & malaprooisms. The result was no match. It seems the lpsg search engine is lacking in horsepower. Thanks to joytoyboy who did a more precise search for pointing out that this had been already discussed five years ago, so he copped some from me flack in the spirit of the thread. It seems some trolls come in many forms. To joytoyboy ... if you don't have anything to contribute ... shut the fuck up! To the moderators that want to fuck joytoyboy .. shut the fuck up!
