So another joke thread gets closed without an explanation. Is there a mod who doesn't like humor? Did someone go over the line but all of us suffer?

An explanation would be nice.

Maybe start here? Not sure but here are the posted rules. Forum Rules

Not saying it was your Original Post (I didnt see it) but could have been a reply that caused it.

Those rules are broken in many threads and those offenders are suspended or put in vacation. Closing the thread should be the last resort after many member infractions and not just one.

I avoided Groan II and Groan III because among others TBN isn't facebook, twitter, etc for me either. Mods respond to complaints more than they use their own reasons, so lets get over blaming them every time that happens. You don't like speed limits, don't blame the cop who writes the ticket. I don't blame shirt & shoe mandates on wait-staff.

Can't please everybody all the time. You want to lace comments with offensive (to someone) innuendo or to support biasies (>one biasy) do that where it's expected, like "TNT".

Lets keep TBN a place where we Google-search for those who won't do it themselves, as though we members have all the answers. :sneaky:

There’s at least one mod who is way over sensitive to anything against his personal political views.

Sad to keep seeing the Groan threads closed for a single post that people find offensive. :confused:

Every good forum has some threads like the Groan thread. People know they are for entertainment and if they want to read them they can. It's like recess for kids. Personally I checked it regularly because there were lots of funny memes etc. All forums need traffic and there isn't a great reason not to allow a thread or two that are off topic. The best forums allow people to express themselves outside of the "serious, on-topic" threads. Alternatives are people putting memes in regular threads or more likely avoiding the forum altogether.
