We are all guilty of unkind words and all are supposedly adult so with admins position if you know it will offend you don't enter that thread. thanks for re-opening the threads!
No it is not censorship.It is common sense.If the fans of the bashed character are not allowed into the thread to agrue with the bashers there will be no trouble same as a basher going into a non bash thread.It cuts down on the fighting which is all the bash threads are is to bait a fan into posting so they can agrue with them.This takes that away.
How would that be monitored? Would Mods be expected to know which poster is a fan of which character and monitor every post? We are all adults, we are able to ignore if someone does that. I have seen it happen often in a bash thread. For every character. Ignore is the way to handle it.If baiters are in your bash thread, report it.
My iPad likes gaiters better than baiter!
How would you know a fan is in a bash thread?Gee I guess they would be in there defending the character that is being bashed. ~)
You are talking like they should not be allowed to enter. There is no way to stop someone from entering any thread. I repeat...if they bait, you report.
