    I wish that everyone in the world will act kind to each other. There would be less problems that way.
    The day that happens is the day I grow wings and fly right inside my 3DS screen, and become one with SmileBASIC; that means sorry man, that is never going to happen

  • #24 ✎ 1088 randomous Owner Robot Hidden Easter Eggs Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website Drawing I like to draw! Hobbies Don't worry about the messy thread. I'll try to make my intentions a bit clearer. I'm not looking to censor rudeness. I personally will not remove comments or posts unless they are spam advertisements or flagged far too many times. The removal of posts and comments is really up to the admins, and I think they're doing a pretty good job so far, especially if you compare them to admins in other communities. The point I was trying to make is that I'd like people to be kind and helpful. I know I can't force you to do this, which is why it's not a rule. But if a community is lead by pompous, elitist, sarcastic people, then there's a greater chance the community will be the same way. People look for communities that match their personalities, so if the community is rude, you'll attract more rude people. I hope that by encouraging a nice community, some of our old members will take it to heart, and maybe new members will follow suit. As a final note, being helpful doesn't mean you're pampering someone's fragile ego. It's not good to assume everyone who's asking for help is a weak person. Posted
  • #25 ✎ 123 glennxserge This seems like the right approach. As I'm reading through this chain of comments, I'm not sure what prompted the concern about censorship, but it seemed like a reactionary, non-sequitur to me. I can't imagine how anyone took the idea of being charitable to the noobs, and decided it meant banning speech. But maybe some people who'd like to be rude, think that being asked to play nice in someone else's home is a form of suppression. If I can only speak to the selfish side of such an individual, being nice has personal benefits too. "Not being a dick", will actually help you socially and professionally. Posted

    It was a comment now deleted that was more than likely a troll comment, but was very disrespectful to the wishes of the sbs staff and the users here themselves. The chain was then deleted as it made very little sense without the original post for context. Personally, I dont see removing "being a dick for the sake of being a dick" comments as censorship. Its not like the Admins here are stopping us from talking about any subject. They just don't want people pissing in cornflakes for no reason.

  • #27 ✎ 123 glennxserge Oh, I managed to read the post before it was deleted, and even in context, I don't understand how that person decided that censorship was incoming based on some tips on how to be courteous to others. It only became a topic after that. Posted

    To be honest, I think that was meant to start an uproar of SBS users protesting with virtual signs with "internet censorship" crossed out on them. The community may be small, but people here are smart enough to catch on to people's mind games.
