Arachnophobia

Post by Renée Bagslint » Sun Jul 15, 2018 10:21 am

Today's Front Page features a picture of a golden silk orb-weaver spider. Quite a nice picture unless you're an arachnophobe, as many people are. It would be a great idea to get up a campaign to suggest that it shouldn't be there, as it would upset some readers. Of course then we would get a mean-spirited display of NOTCENSORED and with any luck edge administrators and others a little further down the path of being deliberately horrible to people just because they can, more phobia-triggering pictures on the Front Page and a consequent decline in popularity. Win-win, really. The reason I mention it here is firstly to encourage readers here to go there to complain, and secondly to encourage readers there to assume that the genuine complaints are all part of an Evil Conspiracy orchestrated from here and encourage more obnoxious behaviour there.
