The mod team doesn't care if you think a poster is a "little beta" or a "fucking cuck" or any other bullshit that involves negging another forum user. We encourage you to keep it real, this isn't a "safe space" for the weak, but at the same time it is not a battleground where "whoever speaks the most edgy shit wins." Nah, we don't want that shit here. We'll leave that bullshit to the perpetual adolescents who give more fucks about seeming cool than learning.
When all people do is disrespect one another, substantive conversation cannot be had and the topic devolves into a battle of egos.
We really don't give a shit about your ego here, how popular you are, what you make, the kind of level you're at in society, the car you drive ad nauseam. We give a massive number of negative fucks about your real life, the only thing important to us when you come in here is your knowledge. So don't posture, because we don't care and we don't want you to tell us shit we don't give a fuck about.
When you feel the need to tell someone how pathetic they probably are and how awesome you are in comparison, nobody learns anything. All you do is lower the signal and increase the noise.
RESULT? You give the mods more work to do, and people who give us more work to do are people we want to kick in the head. But because we can't do that, we just ban 'em instead. The mod team does not give a fuck if you need to shit on other people to feel like you exist, we don't tolerate that immature "LOOK I'M SUPERIOR, WATCH ME GO ASSERT MYSELF TO PROVE IT" bullshit here. Anybody behaving in this manner will be given the flair "worthless tramp" to give everybody a laugh the next time they instigate in the never ending quest for drama, that or we'll just ban you.
This is a forum to discuss ideas pertaining to masculine self-improvement and sexual strategy, we can only do this if a basic level of decency and respect are maintained. This predominantly means:
- Show a basic level of common decency to all posters
- Attack the opinion, not the poster
You are talking to other dudes anonymously over a machine, you're not trying to impress a hot girl by deploying "AMOG EVERYBODY Donald Trump caveman game." You don't need to neg all the guys around you and then flirt-neg the hot girl to show how ALPHA AS FUARRRK #winning you are. This narcissistic posturing bullshit shit is for getting your dick wet with soulless bitches, not for talking to dudes about sexual strategy and self-improvement.
Treat your fellow red pillers with respect and refrain from petty internet bullshit, or the fraternity doesn't want you. It's that simple. People who behave like this drive people away who are actually worth a fuck.
As for our more mature users who don't endorse nor encourage this nonsense, we'd like you to report comment chains where people are simply putting one another down or bickering over net worth, notch count and other unverifiable offline bullshit. If you want this place to be worth a fuck, you have to play your part in defending the community from bullshit by reporting it whenever it crops up.
People like to bitch "why haven't the mods removed X?" like we're fucking minimum wage janitors that aren't doing our jobs properly. Truth is, we probably haven't noticed it, we get a few thousand comments per day and there are only a dozen or so moderators. We cannot read every topic, low karma doesn't mean a topic is bad, and some bad topics have good titles.
If you've noticed some crap that needs cleaning, you can do your bit by spending literally 5 seconds to report it. DO THAT, do not spend a minute writing out a post bemoaning how TRP has gone to shit, just report the post and keep quiet - THIS IS THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR THE BOARD.
By reporting a post, you bring it to our attention and heavily increase the chances the offending post will be removed. Every comment has a report button under it, use it when you spot nonsense and we'll all be the better for it. Less complaining about "why have the mods not done X?" and more helping us the fuck out by reporting stuff. For a community this size and this active we do not get enough comment reports.
With a forum this size, a dozen dudes cannot be everywhere at once to clean up the epic amounts of bullshit that get posted, you have to do your bit to help us. See it as your civic duty, the more people who adopt this attitude, the less crap there will be in the forum and the more you will enjoy coming here.
One more thing: do not talk shit to endorsed, senior endorsed and vanguards - chances of you being kicked out for trying to be an edgy fuckwit with these guys is about 99.9%. And then we'll ignore you when you blow up our mailboxes screaming insults demanding to know why you're banned.
The red pill is a resource, not a crab bucket. There is no competition here, so act right, treat each other well, boost each other up and don't make me post rants.
Show common decency
More substance, less fluff. Maturity > Immaturity
