I'm happy with the decision, but I'm not a contest person. You could cancel all of the Contests and I wouldn't mind at all

The entire moderation team should be declared ACC winners for this.

MTF isn't a school playground, it's an anonymous forum. The roasting threads went, now the ACC goes too. What next??? Let's kill all the fun of MTF for good?

The ACC is the only thing that unites the forum. It's a good outlet for all the hostility in GM and the bitching is no worse than it is in there.

Pop contest should go too. It's no less cynical.

This does put an end to him coming back under yet another account to try to win the ACC now. And maybe now he will stop making all those Double Accounts! I have lost track of the number of accounts he has had!

The mods have a point. trolling is a bannable offence. so are personal attacks. You can't have a contest that encourages this kind of behaviour, then uses the rule to ban you for doing it.

Of course there's a "line" between fun and attacks, but if people could ever collectively agree on where the (highly subjective) "line" is -- and then actually stick to those rules -- we wouldn't have half the laws we have in this world.

Very poor decision. If people were getting banned because of ACC, so much the better, it was a great way to get rid of some of the biggest trolls. It was a sort of the ultimate litmus test, if you can't your s**t together during ACC, you shouldn't be posting on this form anyway.

Yeah well if there's personal attacks and the line is crossed, then those people get banned don't they? Why should those who wanna have fun pay the price? This is like banning alcohol just because of alcoholics.

Filo V went sick in 2011 and ate a ban. How was that anyone else's fault???

It doesn't encourage it. The goal was not to win it and show everyone who the worst poster was. Of course some didn't see it that way, and for most the goal was to win a few rounds (even the mods themselves seemed happy winning early on)

It probably will, as people will just use it to run an unofficial ACC.

Congrats, Tripwires! Pop Queen for life.
