Why do the funny threads get archived?
Oh you know what I mean. People question moderation or some fluther policy or another, and it ends like this:
“Now that people are getting snippy again, I don’t think anything productive will come from continuing at this point. We’re going to archive this one, too.”
Aside from the issue of who gets to decide what is “productive” or not, or whether productivity is even a relative standard for a conversation (it isn’t), what about the humor? These threads are hysterical. I love how people get all up in arms. Getting “snippy” is the whole point. I was just about to poke a little fun at myself for still following the question, when I discovered it had been archived, and now I have to start a new thread for no reason at all, other than to make fun of myself.
Well, I invite you all to make fun of yourselves, too. Get as snippy as you want. Just realize it’s funny.
What do you think you take most seriously—to the point of annoying other people?
In my case, I know that I take the moderation here way too seriously, and that annoys a whole slew of others no end. So I hereby tell myself to get a life. ;-)
