Mod Button Mash
This thread is for noting/reporting stuff done with the mod buttons.

I moved a couple posts from Official 2016 election thread (3rd party edition) to 2016 Election (U.S. Presidential, duh).

I split a bunch of posts from the green desert thread to here.

Yeah I just noticed it myself. There are automatic admin and moderation logs though.

Just a FYI, I've mashed a few of Jim's posts. I've got to the point where if I see he's just spammed his Newton OP again (and again and...) I just delete the frigging post because it's the easiest option. Anyone disagree with this?

Not me. It's spamming, imo.

Oh ok, no problem.

Quote from: Teh Sacred Scriptures What Were Handed Down With Much Trumpeting
3.6) Posts will only be edited or deleted to remove duplicate posts, spam, malicious code or links to malicious code, illegal content, and members' personal data not posted with their explicit permission. Members may request for staff to edit/delete their own posts after the 120-minute edit period expires, but the integrity of the thread will take precedence.
So the stuff I kiboshed was definitely duplicate posts, and in some people's eyes was also spam.

I conclude that I am as pure as the driven snow before the huskies got to it, and can sleep soundly tonight.

if they're duplicate posts, the charter covers that kind of deletion.  non-commercial spam has mostly been handled by moving it to TCR, and suspending people who keep re-adding it.  Non-commercial spam is usually a protest or a free speech challenge by the spammer.  If the posts all get deleted, it's hard for people to know how much of a spamfest it actually was.

All of this was a lot more important during the early days of TR.

Dunno if any of this applies to the current situation.

Going to go back to my #notmyproblem cave now.

Well Jim's stuff is a bit of a borderline case. You could argue that some of it was non-commercial spam, but OTOH he is also trying to promote his books. My 2c is just wallop it with common sense, unless someone decides to do a freak out in TH, but I'll go along with any consensus.

By the way, I deleted the duplicate GIA thread. It was exactly the same OP as the one that's still there, and the only posts were about it being a duplicate.
