Is being a nuisance for the sake of being a nuisance against the rules?

Haven't seen it anywhere, if so what is the proper punishment?

Can you be any more specific?
I doubt it's written black on white in the rules, but it's a matter of intent, if you're blatantly being a dick to people and being a nuisance just to piss them off or ruin the thread, you're not safe behind the shield of "Ha-ha you can't get me because the rules don't say I can't do this specific thing".

Gee, good to know.
For a second there i thought drama-mongering idiots were free to roam as they like.

So, is this just a saying or do you actively moderate this?

If you have anything specific in mind, feel free to bring it up.

>So, is this just a saying or do you actively moderate this?

We actively moderate this. Usually all it takes is a warning and people stop, I can't think of one precise occasion where I actually had to ban someone for being a dick - mind you I'm not saying it never happened, I've been at this for over a year, but it doesn't happen often enough to be memorable is what I'm getting at, at least.
The site is community-driven, but there are some standards of dignity and sense of community we - the staff and the community - expect people to at least try to abide by, this is a public space, not a dumpster for people's frustrations.

I hope that answers the question.

I'm just a normal user, but I think it depends on what your idea of "being a nuisance" is.

On /anon/, we have heated debates all the time about all kinds of things, to the point where we sometimes insult each other out of anger at different opinions or in defense of our own when they are being attacked…but that's kind of normal.

I'd say there's a difference between having a really passionate argument about something from the show or the fandom, and then someone coming and just trying to blatantly start drama for no reason (I wish I could think of a good example of what that would be like but I can't).

I'm not sure what /oat/ is like but the general lack of mod intervention on /anon/ is enjoyed by most, even though things can get taken pretty far sometimes. But that's the beauty of (most of) us being anonymous there.

/oat/ is meant to be worksafe so some strict mods should be expected with the territory

i kind of see /oat/ as the board i can casually browse if im bored in a library on my phone or on my laptop and not have to worry about having to scroll through pages of offensive/risque/lewd/disgusting/inappropriate stuff that i'd rather engage in when im at home and behind closed doors.

that said getting rid of people obviously trying to break rules and push limits just because theyre edgy kids off their meds and hopped up on drugs going through a rebellious phase is not something id ever be against
of course itd have to be within reason

If you're being a nuisance just to be a nuisance, you should probably isolate yourself from humanity for being a shitty human being.

I can't believe someone needs a rule specifically saying, "don't be a cockbite to other people" to prevent them from doing it. This is basically why my faith in humanity is as low as I can get it without needing to dig a hole.

Nibble the right ones and you'll go far here.

I think there is a discernible difference between being a nuisance and a cockbite. I wouldn't want to think of myself as the latter. Mind you, I don't think being a cockbite is against the rules either, for those who want to be one. Plenty of people have been cockbiteish towards me, for example. I think the general attitude among the staff is that if a little cockbiting gets to you, you need a thicker foreskin.

Also worthy of note, however, is that the staff frowns on cockbiting while on /site/. This is not the arena for such practices. But we're good. Cause we're not biting any cocks. We're just discussing the process.
