Tumblr/Twitter Sonic's latest exploits in Green Grove Zone Posted August 31, 2015 · Edited August 31, 2015 by Diesel This has nothing to do with the franchise's current state nor the predication of what is and isn't a popular opinion. It doesn't even have to do with how pleasant your posts look. This topic on characters of various popularity levels progressed just fine until one specific individual- whose behavior has been marked as problematic by- I shit you not, the entire active moderating team ever since he joined- came into the thread. Did the thread get problematic only after I entered it? Yes, but I had nothing to do with it initially. Before the whole argument about Knuckles and Blaze started, you yourself noted that the thread was getting derailed by spam: Furthermore, let's not get too snarky and spammy in here. Yes it's a dumb poll at the end of the day but let's not have the thread get on the train towards Shitsville. As far as I know, no one has decided to or even accused SSMB of making a concerted effort to band together to vote for any single character. We're also not arguing that what you're doing is illegal (and in any event, using "it's not against the rules" isn't a solid defense for the ethics of a behavior). We're arguing that it's unsportsmanlike and thus becomes a poll about /v/'s favorite characters versus the fandom's favorite characters. Also to the rest of you, listen to Azoo and cut the spam out. There's no use coming here to defend yourselves if you're going to bandy about the topic. And then, you gave Kamina a fairly serious warning: This is your last warning. Anymore of this and you'll have to go. I had absolutely nothing to do with anything of this, so don't try to say it's my fault the thread ever got problematic. The thread was not going "just fine" before I started any arguments. I highly disagree with the rest of your post regarding how I behaved in this thread, but I won't bother responding to it for the sake of the thread.
