Why are posts being deleted?

I've noticed more and more that some posts in threads are being deleted. I don't know whether it's because of the forum or rather mods deleting the posts but it seems pretty wierd.

I guess the entire reason for the plus and minus frag system is to try to make someone feel bad if they post something stupid, so why are posts being deleted would be my next question if so. These aren't entirely distasteful posts either.

No, I've seen many posts mine and others get flat out deleted. They had like 20 plus frags so I'm pretty sure they were there.

Stuff that gets nuked is usually where seeing the post is enough to be bad, whether it be embedded NSFW stuff, spoilers (see http://teamfortress.tv/forum/thread/11742-i49-grand-final-vod), to something similar

You can confirm if a post is deleted if the post numbers skip numbers

I've noticed that the ones being deleted are posts/threads that rehash old, petty arguments that are generally toxic to the TF2 community (like the Stabby fanboy thread) or things that have no purpose except to ultimately embarrass and shame certain community members (see Lauren thread, also included as NSFW element). I would say that the -/+ frag system doesn't work in situations like that because the majority seemed to egg on the drama with +frags. I think the mods are reacting in appropriate manners and I for one appreciate their work. It also makes me do more schoolwork because there's no shitshow to follow.

Only post I saw get deleted was the guy who drew a picture of someone fucking a donkey. I thought that was completely necessary.

They should lock bad threads and edit bad posts (nsfw, spoilers). There really shouldn't be a need to delete stuff.

gotfrag was arguably 100% less infested with group think and bandwagoning than the reddit generation that populates this forum

evidence: I didn't have people adding me on steam because they appreciated that I wasn't afraid to get -fragged and they agreed with me. No one ever would have thought that someone would seriously post "june, the only person on this entire forum not afraid to get -fragged" and get +fragged/not be an alt

I don't think I've ever seen a post edited on this forum. Some things should be delete/hidden altogether though instead of just locking threads.

90% of the posts that get nuked are either NSFW or giant flashing animated .gifs posted with the sole intent of being annoying

only tangentially related, but what do people think of disabling +/- frags on specific threads, done either by the OP or mods ? it might be good in discussions like the quickfix threads to reduce bandwagon behavior.

ok june you can do this thing where you throw out buzzwords like "bandwagoning" and "reddit" and consider yourself a master debater but anybody who actually paid attention to gotfrag will remember how often the second somebody would fuck up thered be a thread in addition to a zillion alts all ripping on whoever made the mistake

see flame_idiot, dats a meatshot, enigma bubble lan story, vhalin asking about ratehacks etc

tftv is wayyy tamer as far as throwing people under the bus or calling them out, which is good/bad but definitely not more hiveminded than gotfrag was

im pretty sure thered be a pages worth of threads and not just one or two mean posts if gotfrag was still around while we watched people bomb at i49

if u mean a bunch of # skips on a couple threads recently that's due to someone posting really uhh, 'interesting' NSFW shit recently in large quantity.

I'm really amazed at how fast it got deleted though, seconds after posting it really, good job!

mbut definitely not more hiveminded than gotfrag was

Colored names and the way the frag system works in relation to them is the surest and most blatant example of how this place is more hivemind than gotfrag was. Alt-account spamming has nothing on that bullshit.
