For a moment I thought that it said "mob" instead of "mod".
I don't see a reason to close the thread, but I agree with the Pole otherwise.

Some of you seem a little confused. Let me help.

The word "moist" by some to be an exceptionally unpleasant word for some reason, enough so to justify news articles about it. I was making a post about its famous unpleasantness in order to make fun of Viktor's thread, and of the ilk of people in general who think they are going to right all the world's wrongs by changing words into other words. It had nothing to do with gays.

By the way, not to be too smug about it, but your reaction (in assuming I was referring to some-or-other slur) kind of proves my own point, doesn't it? It seems to me that the censorious language police have definitively entered Poe's Law territory, if I can't even make a satirical post (about a word people dislike because of "facial feedback" or because it conjures "images of cake and sweaty armpits") without accidentally committing some misdemeanor from the Index Verborum Prohibitorum.

And at least one of you wants to lock the thread as well? Good lord. You people are unbelievable.

The language of the first post made it obvious to me that it was satirical. That doesn't mean that I cannot try to take the subject seriously. Also, Poe's law is so prevalent that it should be taken for granted when posting satire.
People are unbelievable. Perhaps that is we feel the compulsion to study ourselves?

(On the positive side, Xephyr, at least one person, me, found it funny.)

What I mean is that if a person ridicules the complaining about words, that doesn't mean people can't have a serious discussion for the solution to complaints.

have you considered that it would also be possible to have a serious discussion on the validity of the complaints

Yes, that is also an important part of the conversation.

Conjuring up images of cake? Where on earth would one allow such a thing? They don't even have any bread to eat!

When it comes to the Pole's posts, I just assume that all interpretations are meant, even the ones that flatly contradict each other.

I don't really know much about Star Trek, so I had to rely on the Wikipedia page for the character description. The Pole certainly resembles that description though.

Of course I was being sarcastic. Honestly, if it were serious, I would demand much more severe punishment for using the M-word…

What was your former signature, the Pole? Something about one cutting themselves? After seeing that, you know that you can't take anything the Pole says 100% seriously. (That was a pretty disturbing signature, and I am glad that you removed it).

Well, there are some times when the Pole is at least relatively serious, but it doesn't happen often. :)
