Pre-meditated would be my guess.  This seemed to be a pretty random, spur-of-the-moment act.

Good point.  "Attempted joke threads" is probably a better descriptor.

There were 4 threads on this topic with many messages complaining about how there were 4 threads on this topic.    So I got folks to click on a link for a rickroll and boom -- beheaded story comes up.    New age RickRoll.     Irony is that I announced it ahead of time.

Agreed - unfortunately the content of some of the posts reminded me a bit to much of something I would expect to see in /b on 4chan

Let what go on?  I don't really care to moderate what is considered funny.  If the community doesn't care for this stuff then presumably they will be vocal in that (and indeed some have been) and perhaps peer pressure will check it. 

But nothing in these threads constitutes a breach of the CoC IMO and, as such, I don't see why these threads should have been locked.  Could they have been merged?  Perhaps but we don't do that every often either.

Personally, I don't think posting multiple threads as some sort of meta-joke is very funny and if it becomes constant then maybe we can decide on an official policy against it.  But, for now, these type of meta-jokes don't seem frequent enough to take such action.

I just think six threads on the same topic, four of which were done just to be funny, is too much.  What's the point of moderating a board if you're going to just allow people to spam away like that? 

Also, this line from the CoC strikes me as possibly applicable:

Quote
The posting of inflammatory, rude, repetitive or offensive messages designed to annoy or antagonize other posters or disrupt the flow of discussion is not allowed here.

I'd argue that the multiple threads constitute repetitive messages designed to annoy.  You might even argue that some of them were offensive, given the issue that was originally being discussed.

People can joke around all they want, I just don't think we needed four additional threads started, as was the case in this situation.

IMHO, obviously.

I think a better question is why you're making a big whoop out of this. The threads have died out, it's a new week, and people have moved on. It's you who's keeping the threads alive with your posts. Why not simply ignore the posts if they didn't appeal to your sense of humor? This is what most of us do. Now you're calling for 'mod action' and god knows what.

I didn't want to say anything.. but, seriously, you're being petty.

Because what you may feel is too much others may find amusing.  Again, I try not to be an arbiter of what's funny and what isn't. Yes, I could take a more heavy approach to the CoC  but when I do that it typically results in complaints as well. Were the posts designed to annoy or to be funny?  Evidently it was both depending on the person. 

Further, the bulk of this stuff was over the weekend when we have less traffic.  I, along with many others, don't spend nearly as much time here on the weekend so frankly I didn't even take too much notice. There were never any reports on any of the threads and, believe it or not, I don't/can't read every post on this board.  If the subject line doesn't interest me (and at this point Rick Roll is hardly something I'm burning to read more about) then I may not even read any of the thread.

We really need to stop calling it that. Tongue



As to the topic itself, it's a sick thing and I hope the perp ends up living the rest of his life behind bars. Do I think it's actually funny? No. Did I think the multiple threads deadhorse? Yes. But posting in them keeps them around and there's no point in reviving it, merging it, or slapping people on the wrist for something they did not do with malice or ill-will.
