that's not what private means.
anyone can see the sight member or not.
and you use that as a defense to why certain words are banned.

and btw if you want to get real here if you DON'T use belivablity as a rule of thumb then explain why the word troll isn't banned.
explain why a mod can call me "a derp"

I posted one question on Smogon about a year ago, and every "answer" was just people being jerkoffs. The community here may have some bad seeds, but they are trumped out by the good ones. Not so on Smogon.

If you really think the FCC has any control of this site, then feel free to complain to them about us.

I don't see any reason why troll should be a banned word. As for a mod calling you a derp, feel free to mark them. We follow the same rules as everyone else and can be modded. Of course, I wouldn't mod anyone just for calling someone else a derp.

I completely doubt that. They're usually nice to beginners unless they don't read the rules and make new topics for noob questions (you have to post in the simple questions, simple answers threads). This site is very happy to moderate people for not understanding the rules too. Overall most people on Smogon tend to have good and polite conversations. You like the community here? Where everything is chaotic and threads are mostly joke threads about feet, fads, and design/genwars?

derp is another way of saying stupid.
when people call people a troll it IS ALWAYS meant as an insult.
name one time someone used it differently.

and hey your at least one mod who isn't a lazy hack considering you actually step outside of current events.
also the mod in question is lead mod so only sballen can actually do something to him

I don't like Smogon because their staff is worthless. Gamefaqs mods are saints compared to those things.


Nope, not even close. Smogon actually has consistency. Though they're much more effective at weeding out trolls though because of the smaller community which is a big reason someusers hate it.

Only 12 year olds just believe whatever others tell them.


smogon mod confirmed

Making quick ignorant assumptions? Child confirmed. I don't even have an account on Smogon.
