[quote][url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=74742264]My thanks to the moderators[/url]. With that said, this thread can be locked. It's purpose has been fulfilled.[/quote] ...and by "this" I mean all the horrible 9/11 threads that were made on the Flood last year. Threads with hundreds posts of nothing but sick humored-jokes and images about 9/11 were thriving on 9/11/2011. The mods did lock a few threads, but threads that stood as a "main" discussion hub stayed alive, and the horrible posters were never punished for what they did. The mods basically did nothing. It got to the point where flamewars were being started over the issue of, get this... being able to make fun of it. I know some of the mods will say that they did, in fact, ban people that day, but I know for a fact that the sick-humored posts within the threads were never taken care of. For discussion value, what's your opinion on this issue? Not 9/11, but the issue of posters making fun of such a tragedy on the Bungie.net forums. [Edited on 09.12.2012 1:28 PM PDT]

    I would like to thank the moderators for their service yesterday. Not once did I see a single 9/11 joke post or thread, and any that did appear were quickly handled accordingly. The situation that occurred last year was completely and utterly avoided. With that said, mods can lock this thread. Yes, I know I did bump a basically-dead thread on the second page, but I just wanted to show my appreciation.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Grimaldus [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Fuzzy McDoodle On one hand, it happened over 10 years ago and you need to not let a bunch of Internet trolls get the better of you, and on one hand, if it's violent it shouldn't be on The Flood. Making fun of other tragedies happens all the time on that board without action, I don't understand why 9/11 should be the exception.[/quote]Does it make it any more justifiable?[/quote] Yes, People should be allowed to make jokes about whatever they want.

    We don't like your logic round these here parts. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Poe Sword I think we can just come to the conclusion if you get your feelings hurt really easy, don't go to the flood. really this should be true 365 days a year not just on the anniversary of 9/11[/quote]

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CrazzySnipe55[/quote]I remember talking to a new yorker that saw it happen roughly two days ago about exactly that topic, he said 9/11 jokes were ok 5 years ago, I may be rather disconnected from the experience but someone who saw it happening right before him being perfectly fine with it? That's something else. You claim the generation barely old enough to have heard of it are still emotionally scarred by the event, but I don't think even one in a thousand would be very offended by the example jokes within this thread, in fact I'm sure a good few would laugh.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MURDUR 587 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] CrazzySnipe55 [/quote]My point that the majority of life on this planet being wiped out was a larger tragedy still stands. As for "The wounds being fresh", the majority of people aged 11 and under might not even know about it, that's coming up to a whole generation of people already, it's not that recent a tragedy that making a joke about it is still "kicking you when you're getting back up". Did you know Genghis Khan has a 0.5% chance of being your ancestor, do you know how he died?[/quote]Having sex I'm pretty sure, but I don't see how that's relevant. And people under the age of 14 aren't very relative in this discussion. They're not the people we're worried about. They're not going to have much of a connection to 9/11 barring any patriotic one or one gained via cultural-osmosis. The people who're going to get offended are the people who're sixteen and older. People around my age were in Kindergarten or 1st grade, and if you understood what was going on then your memory of the event was possibly even more horrific than some adults. Hell, one of the planes crashed into my state, too. My grandpa was in the Pentagon (on account o' he worked there) at the time and I didn't find out til years later that he was actually really close to where the plane hit. The point is that almost everyone has some sort of connection to 9/11 even if they did't live in NYC and because of the fact that everyone has a connection to the people-on-people attack and the immense panic it created and this new era of "War on Terror" it ushered us into that is still going on, we're nowhere near the point where making fun of the event is okay. (For the record, I'm against any sort of making fun of the Haitian Earthquake, Japanese Earthquake, London Subway Bombings, Norway Massacre, or any other horrific event that happened in recent memory.)

It happened to America, one the the largest, most populous, most economically powerful countries on the planet. 2. It happened to New York, one of the most populous cities in the country (if not the most). 3. Because of it happening in such a populous place, the chances of someone you knew being dead were so much greater. 4. Because of the fact that it was broadcast over CNN, etc. people still have the images of people jumping out the building burned into their heads. 5. It also happened to the pentagon and (we think) tried for the whitehouse. This caused people to have an intense fear that they still deal with when they remember the day. 6. It was people attacking people. People attacking innocent people at that. It wasn't a natural disaster. Yes, those are terrible but the idea of people attacking people means that it could just as easily happen the day after. All of those things compound into a psyche that, for the most part, was ravaged by and continues to be ravaged by the idea of the event. It's not so much laughing at tragedy as it is laughing at devastation, death, and fear. You're kicking someone, not while they're down, but while they're trying to get up which is just as bad.[/quote]THANK YOU!

My argument for this site is that the people in the Flood cannot restrain themselves to properly discussing tragedies...and honestly, I don't think the moderators would want to babysit such threads. Though obviously if the thread was an honest to god discussion it would be acceptable to just ban the troublemakers for 3 days without warning seeing as how we go through this every year...there are certain things you can say and other things that should be kept to yourself. I don't mean to sound disrespectful to you but this is a horribly touchy subject for me. [Edited on 09.11.2012 1:14 AM PDT]

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Shanaynay Why do people keep playing the blame game? I have yet to see a thread or even a post with a sick joke about 9/11. If they're are any, mods are taking care of them on the spot. Maybe this thread did entice a few premature ones, but it's pretty obvious that they would appear on the anniversary of the tragedy itself. That's why I made this thread in the first place. It's not like I made a thread saying, "Make sure you mods ban people on this day, the anniversary of 'Porch Day'" where I would obviously be bringing more awareness to the trolls rather than the mods. No, you and I both expect the same type of posts about 9/11 tomorrow as we saw in 2011.[/quote]And they would have been handled the same way they were handled last year and the same way they're being handled right now, all you've done is put the idea in more people's heads. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Shanaynay You're comparing the posting of the last words of a criminal who most likely killed people to an event where insane extremists conducted an act that killed thousands of innocents? I'm sorry, but there simply is no comparison, whether or not your moral beliefs stand for it. You began your response by defending people who post things like "Nyan Eleven", "Prince of Bel-Air 'dancing' on the towers", and other such sick jokes about the disaster (I really didn't want to post examples, but it seems that I have to to get my point across), yet you condemn me for making a thread telling people to find the last words of a criminal and post them in the thread. Make up your mind. If you're so right, I guess we would be seeing holocaust jokes posted on every message board on the internet with rules. It comes to my understanding that such content isn't very common on boards rather than 4chan. It's not your or anyone's place to deem certain things socially acceptable anywhere with a higher authority. It's the administrator's, the people running the website. It seems pretty obvious to me that they don't accept it. Yes, people may get away with posting such content, but does a bear -blam!- in the woods? You tell me...[/quote]You're the one flip flopping your position here. What are you claiming? Don't speak ill of the dead unless they broke some laws? I simply claimed that your thread was in equally bad taste, if not even worse, given that at the very least people aren't mocking the last words the innocents dead at 9/11 said to their loved ones. No, they're just adding a silly undertone to the event, not mocking those who lost their lives. I suppose they're not really compare-able, your thread was far worse.

    [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MURDUR 587 You do realise they're popping up early because of this thread?[/quote]Why do people keep playing the blame game? I have yet to see a thread or even a post with a sick joke about 9/11. If they're are any, mods are taking care of them on the spot. Maybe this thread did entice a few premature ones, but it's pretty obvious that they would appear on the anniversary of the tragedy itself. That's why I made this thread in the first place. It's not like I made a thread saying, "Make sure you mods ban people on this day, the anniversary of 'Porch Day'" where I would obviously be bringing more awareness to the trolls rather than the mods. No, you and I both expect the same type of posts about 9/11 tomorrow as we saw in 2011. [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] MURDUR 587 [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Shanaynay If you think such a statement is true, why was [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=74443988]this thread[/url] locked? Yes, I did make that thread. So? It's not making fun of a national tragedy where [i]innocent[/i] people died. Your statement is ludicrous.[/quote]Why would you even make that thread? I'm not sure mocking someone's last words, regardless of crimes they commited in their lives, is at all more appropriate than jokes about recent tragedies. What, is it only morally abhorrent if the jokes are about innocents losing their lives? Are jokes about me throwing a wood chopping racist into a saw mill all right?[/quote]You're comparing the posting of the last words of a criminal who most likely killed people to an event where insane extremists conducted an act that killed thousands of innocents? I'm sorry, but there simply is no comparison, whether or not your moral beliefs stand for it. You began your response by defending people who post things like "Nyan Eleven", "Prince of Bel-Air 'dancing' on the towers", and other such sick jokes about the disaster (I really didn't want to post examples, but it seems that I have to to get my point across), yet you condemn me for making a thread telling people to find the last words of a criminal and post them in the thread. Make up your mind. If you're so right, I guess we would be seeing holocaust jokes posted on every message board on the internet with rules. It comes to my understanding that such content isn't very common on boards rather than 4chan. It's not your or anyone's place to deem certain things socially acceptable anywhere with a higher authority. It's the administrator's, the people running the website. It seems pretty obvious to me that they don't accept it. Yes, people may get away with posting such content, but does a bear -blam!- in the woods? You tell me...

    What? I'm not allowed to make jokes about tragedies now? What about jokes that have negative connotations? Or jokes that contain more vulgar language like 'darn'? Sure, spamming lame jokes just to get a rise out of people is bad, but conceptually there's nothing wrong with simply posting the lame joke in an appropriate context. They are [i]jokes[/i] after all.
