After months of reading a Fungi Forums filled with torrents of swearing, racist jokes, sexist jokes, Nigel Thornberry licking his nipple, and drawings of cocks, I decide to start posting again, make one gag about the real highest rated handheld game (if you know what I mean) and it gets deleted in a few hours. Not edited, deleted.

What. The. Heck.

Dangit, why do I always miss these things? At least, I think I missed it... Can you clue me in, here?

What other clues do you need.
That was a joke.

Think ShadowBrain. The highest rated handheld game.

SB, it's shocking that you of all members should have difficulty deciphering a groan-tastic double entendre.

Anyway, I agree that deleting LD's comment was a tad ridiculous. I never saw it, but I'll assume that it was a reasonable facsimile to what was mentioned above.

It's hilarious because I remember I once made a similar reference and it was Lizard Dude who edited my post and left it blank except for his edit line.

How do you like them apples?
As a game that requires six friends, an HDTV, and skill, I can see why the majority of TMK is going to hate on it hard.

I'm just going with the times here. If it was back when I was a mod, the comment would not have been acceptable. I would not have made it myself, either.

But just now I came from a thread with six posts in a row talking about grinding weiners. I'm upset that my post was deleted when many far worse posts are made and tolerated every day, even if you have the profanity filter on.

What I'm saying is Chupperson Weird hates me because I think the Xbox 360 is better than the PlayStation 3.

Oh...

You're kidding me. That was deleted? There was no accompanying picture, or anything? Yeah, I can think of a ton of posts, most of them mine, that are way worse than that.

Obviously, it just comes down to the individual mod (was it CW who deleted it, or what?), but I'm not even sure Sapphira would've done that...

Hey whoa whoa, I didn't touch that post, sir. Someone else committed this post-murder.
That was a joke.

Hmm.

Well, Suffix and Sapphira haven't been online since August. I guess that leaves Deezer.

Maybe he's trying to keep Mario Chat as the last bastion of cleanliness?

It was Black Mage. He was on earlier today and still occasionally censors.

Doesn't SMF come with a moderator log?

Woah there. Don't jump to conclusions. It wasn't me, I didn't even see the post.

Unlike some of you guys I have to work during the day.
