Pie thread needs to go! Its setting a bad example and encouraging spam!

I dont know how many people have noticed this useless thread in the flood but I speak for alot of people when I say that thing needs to get locked,deleted and nuked out of the flood forum. Lets see why it needs to go Shall we? It's a pointless thread that encourages the mindless people in the flood forum to spam , the thread itself is spam itself , just because an employee that bypasses the profanity filter numerous times made it and it was one of the first threads ever made [b] DOES NOT [/b] mean that it can just get away with breaking a rule almost everyone knows about. Ninjas can't do anything about it because it [b] has [/b] been locked before but it has been reopened for NO PURPOSE WHATSO EVER! I thought Bungie.net was a place where you can have intelligent discussions with a calm community. Clearly this thread [b] COMPLETELY [/b] defies that. Heres another reason It should get locked. A member in the flood goes and reads the rules. He notices the NO CAPS LOCK RULE. Him being a good civil person says...." Okay no caps " he then notices that thread where multiple rules are broken. He notices that then creates a thread with caps and spams in it. What happens to him? He gets banned. What happens to the ninja who banned him? They get yelled at because the user is asking why that thread is able to stay up and why they were banned? What is the ninja supposed to say? " Oh hes an employee so he gets away with it. " NO thats not how it works I know the motto " You have no rights play nice " but this goes beyond that! Shoulden't the rules mean [b] EVERYONE [/b] has to follow them? Is that not what rules are? If people want to spam go to 4chan for christ sake keep that garbage out of here! [Edited on 03.22.2009 9:54 AM PDT]

  • I find it to be less of the pie thread, and more of the floods population (age group, maturity level, etc).... I think it should stay, but I agree, it is kind of useless..

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] SEM484X Well it's certainly a shame that the pie thread has been deleted,I certainly didn't think it would happen. Although I do wonder why the other 2 threads are gone as well?[/quote]My guess is that they've got rid of the evidence of a Bungie employee getting away with spam as it sets a bad example.

  • The DO YOU LIKE PIE? thread (linked page 1) has been deleted along with the threads attached (such as the poll, linked on page 3). The user [url=http://www.bungie.net/Account/profile.aspx?uid=4431978]drabominable[/url] (this form of spelling) seems to have also been banned, the account doesn't have the title "Bungie Employee" attached. Looks like there is a no mercy policy emerging, that's two bungie employees banned in the space of a month. I guess it is a good thing really, they should set an example not abuse their position as some have done however I don't quite understand the motive for this; perhaps I just found the wrong account in the people finder. It seems ridiculous to ban the user after all this time so there must be something I have overlooked. Ah well, RIP Pie thread, I can't say I'll really miss thee but I'm sure many users will.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Yoozel We've been saying that about Australia for a long while, I mean... your Board of Tourism said that you guys don't ride kangaroos. So why bother to keep you guys around? Fire ze missiles! [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Skibur I think it's time for it to go.[/quote][/quote] Anyone see the irony in this response, and how it connects to the thread title?

  • On one hand the masses cry out that they want the Bungie employees to interact with us more, while the other hand cries out that they don't like the manner in which the employees interact with us. Reminds me of the [url=http://www.pinktink3.250x.com/essays/holygrail_files/image019.jpg]3-headed knight[/url]. You can't have your cake and eat it too.

  • That thread certainly had run it's course. I enjoyed reading through it from time to time, but a lock was certainly in order [i]eventually[/i]. Now that the "point of no return" from being locked has been reached, it will turn into a simple memory. Or at least I would imagine so :-P I'll leave a small tribute/memory/whatever you'd like to call it for anyone who's interested.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 As to a new, different, or other topic from drabominable? He's more than capable of making/creating any thread that he likes.[/quote] Personally, I say keep the thread. I have no interest in it, nor have I posted to it, but I feel it is an outlet for some of the stupidity found on B.net. Besides, and not to be rude, but why delete one 'spam' thread just to create another? What purpose would that serve? You'll simply be creating another thread that, within a year's time, people will complain about and soon thereafter begin to cry for it's deletion as well. Then again, I've always been a fan of hanging a sign on the Flood that says "Say your stupid things here" and leaving it at that, but I think I'm the minority here.

  • God speed pie thread... you have no idea how many times I [i]nearly[/i] locked you and went "Oh, its that one." [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Recon Number 54 Of course, I have (both publicly and privately) challenged drabominable to try to come up with an equally mythic and yet still very zen topic to replace it.[/quote] WHO LIKES FENG SHUI?? Eh, this might take awhile.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Skibur I think it's time for it to go.[/quote] I saw your comment before you edited and I have a feeling there's more than meets the eye in that thread. Maybe I'm trying to look too deep or something, but there may be more to the seemingly horrible comments he made to people. Or maybe he just likes being an ass, but judging by some of the previous posts in that thread, I don't think that's necessarily the case. I'm likely just trying too hard to find deeper meaning though. Anyway, it may be because it's late and I'm a little tired, I don't know, but I don't think it should go.

It seems as though the amazing post history throughout the thread is what everyone is worried about anyway.[/quote] I thought about doing that, but I'm sure they'll allow us ample time to reflect on it before they (if they) decide to delete it.
