    You can get around it by using lame titles such as 'What's your favorite music?' in general discussion.

    The Bethstapo censors so much I wouldn't be surprised if they get an offer to work on The Great Firewall of China.

    IN KOMMUNIST BETHESDUH, THREADS ERASE YOU!

    The Bethesda forums have the most heavy-handed moderation I have ever seen on the Internet.

    ***

    Want to have a discussion about something serious? Sorry, this topic will lead to a flamewar.

    Having a good long discussion/debate reaching its climax? Sorry, this topic is 10 pages long.

    Don't agree with Bethesda tactics? Sorry, you're trolling. I'm giving you a warning.

    Have facts and proof that show Bethesda's lies and faults? Sorry, instant deletion and BANHAMMER.

    Want to know why your topic was deleted or locked. Sorry, we don't discuss locked/deleted topics here.

    Want to know why your old account was banned? Sorry, making another account after you're banned is not allowed.

    Good, reasonable poster suddenly disappeared without notice? You heard he was banned? Sorry, we don't discuss others' accounts here.

    Want to make a topic in the Fallout 3/Oblivious/Morrowind/TES forums? Sorry, we have to approve it whether you like it or not.

    Trying to get around that by posting in General Discussion because you know your topic won't be approved? Sorry, please put this thread in the X forums which you wanted post in. I'm going to have to lock it *OR* instant deletion.

    Member of RPG Codex? Told people who you were on the Beth forums there? Sorry, we found out who you were by reading I REALLY LOVE OBLIVION. We don't want to give you a chance. BANHAMMER!

    Made a mod that makes fun of Oblivion and/or Bethesda? Sorry, we don't care how much you contributed to the community and the discussions here. BANHAMMER!(Cow Guru)

    Do you have an avatar which is perfectly fine according to the rules, but one of our moderators feel offended. Sorry, we don't care about the rules. Our moral judgement means more than the rules we're supposed to follow absolute, NO exceptions NOR additions. BANHAMMER!(Qarl)

    ***

    There's a lot more shit going on there, but this sums the most serious issues up there. I'm sure the Bethstapo Secret Police will show up in this thread telling me that's not how they do it.

    Just that one. I tried to get a mudcrab avatar in the system, but they wouldn't add it.

    Maybe. Felt like I accomplished more reading that than I have arguing with the first recipient of the weasel tag.

    Er, I was banned a while before I made Snakes on a Plane.
    They never really told me why.

    Did you like the bestiality discussion with Vipera? I reread that a few weeks ago for shits and grins; was just as good the second time around.

    That was as entertaining as dolphin sex discussion could be. The comic blitz was neat too. And the "generic Bethesda forum argument" was classic.

    I doubt it, but hey I'm more than happy to step in and let you that the point quoted above is not actually how they do it.

    Proof? I have the same name over there as I do here at the Codex and I know that at least one moderator is aware of the fact. So I guess your inference was a little over enthusiastic on that one. Can't prove or disprove any of the others, sorry.

    Lets call others on their bullshit with varying levels of aggression by all means. But making up our own Codex bullshit - just say no, no, no, fuck that shit.

    I can't agree wholly with that. Some of the moderators do seem to have a thing out for those with a Codex background or those who don't speak well of Bethesda. I wouldn't be surprised if at least one or two of them go a little out of their way. Just like any "law enforcement" there could be those with bias and prejudice. To say they all have a bias, might be some tinfoil hat type of thing....but saying nobody has a bias....well....that's just naive.

    I didn't say they were not biased. Talk about the 'wrong' thing in the 'wrong' way and you probably will be banned. All I was pointing out was that the assertion that the ESF mods finding out that a member is also a member of the Codex is followed by application of the "ban hammer", as an inevitable cause and effect, is rubbish.

    I've posted the full text of VDs Some thoughts on the Fallout 3 article as well as Section8s Calling Fallout 3 into question(s) at the Beth forums and wasn't banned or warned. As long as you don't break any of the stupid rules nothing should happen.

    Okay peoplez!
    First, I want to be part of the 'Best thread ever' thread.
    Second, what the hell are you doing? TES forum madness hasn't ended yet, oh no.

    Fallout 1 and 2 "Fallout 1 and 2 are vastly overrated and at some times just downright boring.

    It was one big post apocalyptic joke at some times which took away from the games fun."

    And I can't forget about "Go away fanboys, Howard is a genious."

    You fail. This thread is about genuine stupidity not about boring trolls.

    Ironically, this thread actually started with the posting of a troll.
