Propose New Forum..."The Sewer"...for posts that get deleted.
cause I wanna know what they said!
..................................

I'm old, and I can't keep up.
By the time I get to the "Good Parts",
the posts have already been deleted and the "name removed"!


Couldn't these posts be moved to a Forum called "The Trash" or "The Sewer" where voyeurs like me can go and see what they said?

The Moderator can use discretion, or just limit the this forum to posts from disruptors that have been tombstoned.
It would be like the "Hate Mailbag"....good for alot of laughs.

2. Great idea!
Sometimes the deletions cut significant parts of the flow of conversation. There ought to be a way to interrupt the disruption but allow the debris to be inspected ... forensically speaking.

3. I think this was suggested before
although I can't remember what came of it so I guess it was shot down. It would be a hoot. Like the hate mailbag with the worst of the illiterate troll spew on display 24/7.

7. And accessible to donors only! I know my star has lapsed and
a chance to check out TS'd posts just might get me off my arse and turn the pop cans in for redemption to get my star back!

21. Yeah -- I Think This Is A GOOD Idea...
And making it a membership premium sounds like a good value-added offering.

Starred DU members could click on a deleted link, or thread, to read.

One of the problems, however, may be legal. It may be illegal for DU to permit certain kinds of posts... like racial hate posts, etc.

22. That's hilarious! How do you post something that get's deleted

9. The only problem is that it's still on the site...
so the DU haters can say "this is what I found on DU" and not mention what section.

15. The M oderator would need to use discretion.
Threats, obscinities, personal information would not be posted.
Just the REALLY dumb things.

Edited on Thu Jul-07-05 05:17 PM by cynatnite
I wouldn't care to have posts overwhelmed like that because they know their posts would be read and seen. I certainly don't them to have a platform here.

13. I think one of mine got tanked.
I just suggested that one certain group had more to gain from today's bombings than any other. I leave it to you figure out who. There are clues in David Ray Griffin's book The New Pearl Harbor.

19. Self kick
Someone upthread suggested that this type of forum would appeal to masochists, so I am self kicking.

Gee, just noticed that one more nomination puts this on "The Greatest" page.
I'm NOT trolling for nominations. That would be beneath me.
I'm just making a simple observation.....

23. Nominated and kicked...
...per your request bvar22, perhaps a weekly or monthly edition version with a moderators commentary may work. I read and enjoyed the hatemail article posted a couple of weeks or so ago. I for one am ready for more.

31. I think it's a great idea.
It could be a forum that no one can reply to so that fights and arguments won't be continued there. It could be used as a tool for the Admins and Mods to show us exactly the sort of behavior they find unacceptable. They could post an explanation as to why a certian post was deleted. And of course they could use discrestion and not put posts there that could get DU or anyone on DU in trouble.

I like the idea that you'd have to be a donor to view the forum. I also think you should have a certian number of posts, a high number. This would help ensure that trolls won't be able to see the forum. How many of them actually donate money to DU and have over 1000 posts? Some do, I know, but not many.

Someone would have to propose this to Skinner. Perhaps bvar22? ;)

ps... sorry for the spelling errors. the spell check is going to slow for me. I'm impatient... sue me.

35. Every time I see "deleted"
all I can think about is what was it they said that was so foul and disruptive that it had to deleted? What was it?

I wanna know. So put them in a special place where we curious weirdos can read them. We could even have a secret password or something to get in so that nice people don't stumble in by mistake and read them and fall to pieces.

An idea whose time has obviously come.

Khash.
