It wouldn't have turned into a "pro drug vs. anti drug" discussion if you had done something to prevent that. Instead of cracking down on people trolling by posting images of "Winners Don't Use Drugs", you decided that "DRUGS ARE BAD AND WE CAN'T HAVE A DISCUSSION ON THEM AT ALL." I would not have gotten defensive if I didn't have a reason to.Originally Posted by Dot50Cal
I honestly do not care in the slightest if you don't like drug use. If anyone wants to discuss it in a calm and civil manner, that is fine with me. Having people shoving opinions down my throat when they are not asked for is guaranteed to piss me off.
"Use" your moderating power? Being a moderator is a job, not a toy you use to close topics you don't like. If all you have to do is delete the occasional spam, then that's all you have to do. Closing a topic because you haven't had an excuse to use that ability in a long time is pathetic.
Edit: If you actually want to go back and read the "Legalize it" thread, Tachikoma even said he believed the discussion was civil. Again, this is not about pro drug vs. anti drug, but you forcing your opinions into what should be otherwise neutral matters.
