In Serial Experiments Lain, there is a world above and a world below. The world above is the sky, the heavens, the wired. The world below is the ground, the earth, the flesh. The name reflects the fact that this persona is a fragment of an above-world, but that the person typing this isn't. Weird, right?
I'm selfish and arrogant, but you'll never need to put up with that because I'm just a fragment of some unimportant person's online persona. Stand up and stretch. Have a good day!
Caelidesu said: Some mods illegitimately delete threads which they don't like shouldn't be an excuse to remove that type of thread entirely. That makes no sense.
There is no "illegitimate" thread removal on MAL. If a thread is removed you get a private message with the thread in question and a reason for its removal. If for some reason you did not get this PM, you contact a forum moderator on MAL or IRC asking why was your thread removed.
Know about what you're saying before you start talking of things you know little about and have a look at the Site & Forum Guidelines to avoid making threads that break the rules in the future.
Please understand that what follows isn't a personal attack; don't use this as an excuse to delete this thread too:
I stand by what I said. You straight up deleted one of my threads, for 'spam, off topic and baiting'; a thread that discussed the subtleties of subjectivity and objectivity in the rating of anime; a thread placed in Anime Discussion. I spent a lot of time promoting interesting discussion in that thread and you deleted it instantly, even though it followed all of the guidelines.
All a mod needs to do to remove a thread is write this:
'Thread devolved into a lot of Spam, off topic and baiting. No hope for discussion.'
The content of the thread is irrelevant, because a mod can always use this tagline as an excuse for deleting a thread and get away with it. It doesn't matter if you receive a PM about it, because no-one is obligated to respond to your response. There is only a pretence of a dialogue. Apparently that also implies that by making enough troll responses to a thread, you can get it deleted, regardless of the quality of the content on the first page.
So yes, I can say that a thread was illegitimately removed from MAL, and I will continue to say so. And it is relevant to this discussion: it's bad enough that mods can remove threads at a whim for incredibly vague reasons, so being able to remove a thread at a whim because it wasn't in line with said mod's political ideology would give mods the complete freedom to delete threads as they saw fit, assuming they don't already have that and the rules aren't a total farce.

- Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, Muhammad demanded 1/5th of all they earned, the pick of whatever woman he wanted and more wives than he limited for everyone else.
- Jesus didn't kill a single soul. Muhammad was a conqueror who slew people that didn't submit to his rule.
- Jesus taught that it is what comes out of the heart that makes you unclean, Muhammad taught that eating certain foods, refusing to wear certain things, etc made you unclean.
- Jesus taught to love your enemies, Muhammad taught to be harsh to them and fight and kill them in some cases.
- Jesus taught about believing in him being the only way to be saved, Muhammad taught that following certain rules and regulations was the way to be saved.
There's no "pretty much the same" about it.
You are yet to say what is the same about it. Your statements only indicate that the same prophets & supposed God you dismissed are exactly what you are using to judge as being the same.

Whoever passed down these lies is the ultimate evil, and has done nothing for progress. It's too late on mass to fix the problem, and I still have hundreds of questions feeling that there's also lies that have come under the guise of religious truth; but this is ok now. Passing down dishonest premises for people who are honest and have good intentions scared me, and I'm trying to leave that behind.
Hope I haven't caused any doubt or anything, seriously.
I remember mostly the gist of what a lot of users have said in the past, and a few things you've said have changed my outlook on life in some good ways, so it didn't feel empty at the time. (I heard you say something I've never heard someone else say).
But at least I know you just don't feel like coming back anytime soon.
I won't spam mentioning you in comments, it was just a joke. Do you think you'll ever come back to casual discussion, or is it something you're leaving behind? Everyone's got to do what they've got to do.
Yeah, to me the upcoming season does not look a little dull. I saw shows from around last season and some maybe a bit before that were somewhat good. I saw Re-Zero, Orange, Konosuba, and New Game recently. The first two were action and dramaish, whereas the second two were slice-of-life.
Though what recently actually blew my mind and got me pretty pumped was Parasyte (or Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu). It is a somewhat dark and it looks like you like dark stuff. If you have nothing else you really want to watch, definitely check it out. I am surprised I missed it given how recent it was and its ranking. I pretty much marathoned it from around yesterday haha.
