we have always been reminded that this is not a democracy and that the rules of the site applied by mods' judgment is the arbitrator on this site, then why do you delete threads based on how a minority of fans react to it, bearing in mind that this happens many years after it was accepted by moderators as a valid thread?
in this case you now have posters who are offended by the fact that you have deleted a funny and light-hearted thread, why do you listen to the pleas of one side and completely ignore the other?
and finally, which rule are you following exactly when you delete a thread like this? and if such a rule exists, what is the set number of complaints needed to delete a thread? we need this rule cleared out so users can start lobbying against threads that we think should rightly be deleted.
This. The moderation seems to be about addressing the complaints of those who cry the loudest irrespective of whether the crying is justified or not.
+1 Sad state of affairs if humorless whiners will get their way just to stop whining. Either there's reason to delete/close the thread or it's fine. In both this case and ha-ha threads, the threads existed for years and it was a few, but persistent people who objected.
