Funniest ban you have given
--> @bsh1
Yep

--> @bsh1
I often find that users report content which is clearly not against the rules. Based on context, I assume that this content is reported due to the reporter's personal objections to the content or due to the fact that the content is somehow offensive. However, reports of clearly licit content--even when that content is offensive--waste time and are not acted upon. I would urge users to be circumspect in their use of reports and to familiarize themselves with the COC.
On a debate sites with passionate users, you will probably tend to sees these a lot just due to the nature media consumption and how we take in the news. If a Liberal subscribed to only Liberal magazines, they are leaning toward a more strict and sometimes different view of offensive, CoC breaking rules. Different media outlets and beliefs lead to different interpretations of the CoC

--> @bsh1
The CoC is the base guideline for all users to follow by, but then it comes down to how to user defines to nitty gritty of the CoC. I talked about specifying the CoC DOWN A LOT in the early days of the site and I think you have done a good job with it and giving it more DO ands DONT

130 goes for you too don't think I did not forget about you FAVORITE moderator BECAUSE *cough* *cough* HE APPRECIATE DISCORD MODS
--> @SupaDudz
No ban I have given has been amusing. Some have been peculiar, like with Nd2; I was never sure why he made all those accounts. But no, I've never found any ban funny in a hilarious sense.
--> @Virtuoso
One thing I'd think would be helpful is for the voters to to explain why they're reporting the vote and why they feel like it is against the COC

Let me do this and you'd realise all my reports are accurate. Where is the mechanism to do this without spamming you for ever CoC violation?

You can PM me or Ramshutu. I wish Mike would make a comment section in the reports for reporters to explain why they're reporting it. 
--> @Virtuoso
Ramshutu has blocked me and I will never talk to him about my reports anyway. He is a biased, corrupt mod who I have no intention of dealing with.
--> @Virtuoso
Yep, anyone who wants to message me if they have an issue with a vote that may not necessarily be obvious, let me know.


--> @Speedrace
Who's your favorite coworker?
bish will not answer this because he's too polite to risk giving offense to Virt and Ram.

--> @Castin
I know lol I don't even know why I asked

--> @Speedrace
I don't think you caught onto the joke Castin made. She's the third remaining coworker and she only listed 'Virt and Ram'.
--> @Castin
Bsh loves all his coworkers equally.
It's not true. Virt is his favourite and Virt knows it, even more than bsh1 himself does.
--> @Ramshutu
Bsh loves all his coworkers equally.
Oh, absolutely. Yes. 100%. I, too, endorse the official company line.

--> @Castin
I would also consider myself one of Bsh’s Flying monkeys than a coworker.

I can imagine him cackling out of a window shouting “moderate my pretties!”

--> @Ramshutu
lol
I dont have a favorite mod, they are doing fine, I might not agree with intentions, but at least they're trying
--> @SupaDudz

Some people may buy that as your explantation for why your right arm is twice as big as your left, but not I.

--> @bsh1
How old are you?
--> @Alec
I am 24.
Have you ever considered "merch"?
--> @Club
That's more a question for the site owner than it is for moderation.
