Every time I come into this Temple and find the same 3 people consistently being jerks for the lulz, it completely derails any kind of legitimacy this b.s. NRM has or hopes to have in the future.

Temple, handle your nonsense or quit pretending to be what you're obviously not.


Whilst it's usually only on a technical level that Steam and I disagree on things, I have to say that I'm 100% in agreement with him on this one.

I'm no Computer Whizz, but is there a way of introducing a button which allows users to effectively block a thread from their view? I kind of think that it would solve a lot of our issues

I disagree. We don't need a block button. A block button hides part of reality. If someone doesn't want to see a thread they should use their own button. It's called discipline... restraint. No, not everyone here is a Jedi Master. But even guests, coming to TOTJO, should have some expectation of this place being ours and running by our rules. We have threads that are already hidden from the general public. If they're participating then they're asking to see it. If they join us then they're asking to see more. I think everyone needs to exercise caution and self-control. If we give people a way, a button, where they don't have to exercise these things its like giving them a button where they can just turn off being a Jedi. Because why learn things you don't ever have to actually use?

I entirely agree with what you're saying too to be honest Zealot. I'm just sick of threads getting derailed by people who lack the discipline and restraint that you speak of. Its stifling the discussions here.

At least this button could reduce that from happening

I feel you. But I also think these interactions help us learn how to deal with these interactions. How do you handle someone who is disruptive? Does a Jedi always call the forum cops? Or should we also learn how to debate effectively, try to de-escalate, not feed into it too much, understand and account for different personality types, etc. etc.? Us giving them an easy button would be a kind of easy button for us as well because it would use technology to unnaturally remove conflict instead of dealing with that conflict as Jedi. But do I feel you and understand where you're coming from? Absolutely. But I think our frustrations are part of what we should work on.

There is no passion, there is serenity
