Know any good prayers for someone's immortal damnation? I want to tell Trump how much I care.

"Good prayers"?

Isn't that an oxymoron?

I'm going with "no".

What I'm expecting is we will go back to how it was before the rule. The community can abide by it or not, as they individually see fit. Support it or not, encourage it or not, it's up to you.

We just aren't going to police it any longer.

I note the reds and the greens implemented the rescission, but no one at the UltraBlueInfra level has weighed in yet.

I'd thing the wiser posters on the site might be alert to any sudden disappearances over the next few weeks . . .
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

Yeah, I guess I didn't make my sarcasm strong enough. So: I think this decision SUCKS and is cowardly.

Truthfully, I hate laws, regulations, restrictions. Unfortunately, they are a necessary evil. A real-world example relevant to me is speed bumps. I hate the fucking things. They increase wear and tear on your car's front end. But I recently voted for the mobile park I live in to install them. Why? Because a number of irresponsible residents won't drive through the complex at a safe speed without them.

There are always going to be immoral, irresponsible, inconsiderate, ASSHOLES. They are everywhere and if you don't reign in their behavior, they will gleefully assume the role of ants in the picnic of life.

Clickbaiters are just an annoyance? I agree. But so are spammers. So are Trolls. Neither trolls nor spammers impact my life beyond pissing me off on message boards. But they are mercilessly hammered into internet obscurity by bloodthirsty mods who celebrate banishing them like a teenage boy celebrates kissing another girl. But clickbaiters get a pass because we're suppressing them? BULLSHIT! Fucking bullshit! Clickbaiters are an internet scourge every bit the equal of spammers and trolls.

Sure, you can ignore threads with stupid titles. You can also ignore threads advertising penis enlargement. You can ignore threads and posts obviously intended to do nothing but provoke angry responses. What's the difference?
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

@AFTT47

I agree that having too many click bait titles is very annoying, but in the end we're serving the forum, and if a new not too essential rule causes an endless stream of griping and complaints and sarcastic comments and reports, it's just not doing what it is supposed to accomplish.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
