comments in celeb forum
Is there any appetite from mods to ban comments in celeb threads or at least implement the NS rule there? . It's not life or death, but trawling through the inevitable troll posts to find adds is becoming really not enjoyable. Some people like Lohan, others don't, same with miley and many others.
As it relates to implants or not, nipple out not etc, can there not be a separate celeb discussion area ? It's killing other posters threads as while the pics are of equal quality the subject is not as polarizing.
Some would say if it ain't broke don't fix it but it would be great to see mods make a brave, proactive and major change.
It's not about interaction anymore, it's just a handful of people spamming good threads
Look at me I got 100+ posts
I couldn't disagree more strongly with this idea if someone paid me. The fact that the celeb forum allows for discussion -- even when much of that gets taken up with morons who, say, can't tell Emma Watson's a girl if her hair is short -- is all that sets Phun above boring collections of photosets like PlanetSuzy, or the Mod-Ego-Fests that are VEF and NCF.
I oppose a comment ban in the strongest possible terms. (In fact, I really think that the strong discouragement of discussion in the "Woah, she did hardcore" thread, and its predecessor, the "I Can't believe She Did Hardcore" thread, is somewhere between foolish and stupid. Clearly, the needs of the board users are best met by allowing discussion. You can tell, because they discuss stuff until they're yelled at.)

A refreshing change, Gap! In the past you've sided with the view that heavy-handed Mod censorship of discussion/debate was stifling the life out of phun.org!
As far as NS breaches are concerned, we usually leave it to thread owners to monitor their own threads, because each has his own ideas as to what he finds acceptable, and we're happy to respond to them when necessary.
We have no plans to embargo general comments/discussion, in the Celeb arena or elsewhere, but as usual we will act in those instances where we believe that phun.org's stated principles are threatened.

My general standpoint is to always try and let the debate and opinions flow as they see fit. It isnt always possible off course but i tend to only lock at things i see as NS when im in a thread with such a thing or if it has been reported to me from a member.
started from the bottom
I'm generally for whatever idiotic comments people want to make. The only hard line I would draw is posting off-topic pics in someone else's thread. The only time I ever asked a mod to delete a comment was when someone posted depressing post-boob-job HC pics of Jessie Rogers in my thread featuring one of her pre-boob-job glam sets.

I'm against censoring comments whether I agree with them or not, or to what degree of idiocy they reach. Something has to be pretty foul for me to take issue with it. And while I agree there's a maddening level of inane comments in celeb threads I really can't think of a compelling reason to legislate it. Morons outnumber sensible people in this world, that's just a fact of life.
Also, I'm not really fond of people posting off subject pics in others' threads but unless there's a vocal complaint about it from the thread owner/starter or others commenting in the thread I leave 'em be.
Isn't that one of the purposes of the General Forum?
