I don't think they should, it's always fun bumping these threads when they're prediction fail and are made to look like idiots.

I'm not sure of exact times but if a post was within a certain time of now then it will not be on the "find more posts" page yet.

I can't remember the specifics of my post anymore, but perhaps directly copied, yes.

But when his post contains a very specific line that goes ''Friday the 13th and I'm Jason'', while the rapper of the same name has a song that contains the line ''Friday the 13th, ghetto Jason'', I don't think you can mark that down to a coincidence. Of course that doesn't mean it was consciously stolen, there is such a thing as unconscious plagiarism in music, where listening to music from others can influence you in your own craftsmanship without even realizing it.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

We don't normally go into that much detail about detailed posts/threads. Normally either a moderator finds the content objectionable, misleading or intended to bait/troll, or it is reported by another poster and then deleted by moderators.

Then a moderator with absolutely no knowledge of the subject came along and for unknown reasons decided to side with the reporter. Isn't that convenient, get exposed and simply contact a moderator to make it all disappear. That way you are never in the wrong. Or even worse, there was no reporter to begin with and that moderator took it upon himself to meddle, which reeks of bias. It all seems a very strange way of dealing with things.

Re: Ask MTF Mods

Good to know that my rap battle ended up in a CK vs. mods battle
But yeah, nothing against MM but I found it strange that CK thread disappeared.
