    I know I sound like I'm being the fun police NO JOKES ALLOWED but if the extent of your post is a shitty one liner you're asking for a ban

    The thread would probably be second page by now if it hadn't caused such a scene. There's nothing to actually discuss. It's something for people to laugh at.

    Well that didn't automerge how I expected it.

    yeah and if they're gonna laugh at it they should try being more clever than shoving a few mj song titles into a post and calling it a joke

    There was no chance for discussion in that thread due to the "pun revolution" that was going on.
    Do you have any other examples?

    But why is he asking for threads that are impossible to contribute to in the first place? I said "practically impossible" I.E. hard. I'm saying that there are threads where there isn't much useful discussion material. If you force it, of course you can come up with a generic post to any thread.

    These posts aren't bad. However, they show that the topic itself isn't really exciting except from the perspective of it being humorous to joke about.
    You didn't say a thread that doesn't have very good discussion. You said a thread where you can't contribute beyond puns. If this is such an issue it shouldn't be hard for you to find us some examples.

    This really isn't going anywhere.

    What about threads that are practically impossible to contribute to? Some threads you can't really reply with anything other than "Oh, that sucks" or "oh, that's funny". Sometimes a joke or pun provides more contribution than is otherwise possible to a thread.
    This is a bad excuse. maybe there are threads where you don't know what to contribute, so perhaps you should wait for someone to spark conversation and join that instead of making a terrible joke.

    Albeit, some of these don't even have pun potential, but it highlights my point that there are threads out there that are meant as mild entertainment versus serious intellectual discussion.

    If those threads are to die, fine. I was just asking in the first place lol.

    Like, if we can make puns as long as there is actual contribution attached to the post, that's fine with me, and I thank you guys. I was asking that question for clarification, not to push.

    what

    a thread about leechs tracking down endangered species doesn't have discussion potential? Just because it didn't get many posts doesn't mean it has no potential. Those first three don't even come close to "impossible to discuss without puns" seriously, and the 4th has plenty of room for discussion since it's about kids doing an awesome experiment.

    None of those come close to "impossible to discuss without puns" this really is going nowhere. Enough already.

    proving that some dumb thread about some cuban actors NEEDS puns isn't going to make SH a super happy fun place where you can make really lame jokes and receive many cool faces like: or the logo for electricity type pokémans:

    to avoid going completely off-topic i have a question
    does anyone know how much FP costs to run per month? since larry said he partially uses money from boostar to run the site i wondered what it could cost , being so big that it can contain all these hilarious puns

    What's wrong with puns/jokes that contribute to topic of the thread? It can potentially invoke a new insight on the topic and at the same time contributes to the thread. If the pun sucks then let the community dumb it down and shun him or something. If it gets out of hand then the moderators can ban them (because they are there to moderate). Everything can be deducted with some logic instead of saying "No means no I am bigger than you so shut up!!!" like a bigot. There's not much to argue against and I'm speaking with honesty, so if there is some plausible retort to my argument then by all means....

    Edited:

    Ah yes of course, it was dav0rs fault all along that people have no self-control and thought revolting was a good idea! I should've known!

    Edited:

    damn you dav0r for enforcing the rules like a moderator is supposed to do!!!! I'M STILL SO ANGRY
    Nobody revolted (Like you can revolt on an internet forum), everybody just thought they should say something about a ban that didn't seem justified. Like somebody walks in and makes a lighthearted joke and then being pummeled to the floor and kicked on for that very reason.
