Lock any two but ban deej from the other

I have no standing these days but rolling face tat thread seems to be most faithful to the old formula

leave them all open, ban deej from all but forks'

nope please lock 2 thx

for the record I already asked for boring street rap to be locked and c&ped after deej was being a bitch about it, just do it already he's already in victory lap smug mode and forks is too worked up about it

bhad and bhabie (upper mississippi sh@kedown), Wednesday, 31 January 2018 01:38 (ten months ago) Permalink

i'm not worked up; I am just more than a little tired of deej's petty tyrant shit. It's particularly lame as it bars the dreaded CASUAL RAP FAN from even finding the rap thread! The lack of the words "rap" or "hip hop" in the title is completely intentional.

I read all the genre threads; this is the only genre where one monkey thinks he makes the whole show run and will actually pout and try to shut down the thread if he doesn't get his way. it's embarrassing.

forks please stop starting threads, and lock 2 out of 3 of the current rap threads. thx

flopson, Wednesday, 31 January 2018 03:15 (ten months ago) Permalink

actually if you keep making rap threads, each with successively longer and more deranged and passive aggressive titles, culminating in hateful fugues that exceed the character limit, that's ok too

flopson, Wednesday, 31 January 2018 03:20 (ten months ago) Permalink

this is the weirdest shit to be beefing about

the only person in the universe who actually in his heart gives a fuck about what the rap thread on ilx is called is deej. it seems uncharitable for any of us to pretend we care even a fraction that much, and he's our friend whether we beef w/him or not, so let him title the thread as he sees fit, who gives a shit, done deal

otm, also tbf rap threads have a proud history of opaque thread titles, this is nothing new

k3vin k., Wednesday, 31 January 2018 03:28 (ten months ago) Permalink

well your boy is currently having a fit in multiple threads, so i guess there's your hateful fugues

it's silly to me that everyone wants to bend over backwards to accommodate this guy after he's spent over a decade doing the same patronizing, pedantic, small-win control freak nonsense.

another important rap thread tradition is arguing about the thread title for the first 30 posts

k3vin k., Wednesday, 31 January 2018 04:00 (ten months ago) Permalink

anyways, not to apologize, but i have the flu here so i'm willing to cop that deej might just have caught me when i didn't have the patience to put up with his angry rap nerd schtick. there are some days when I have more energy to excuse other people's issues than others.

I've long thought that the ilx 2.0 tradition of obscuring rap threads didn't go far enough in titular obscurantist brinksmanship. like on Jan 1st I'd call my rap thread "rainbow grills" and call it a day.

2 more observations. 1. this really should've happened in, like, 2011, and ilx has shown incredible restraint that it doesn't happen every year. 2. I know t-shirt is barely in the rearview mirror but I truly thought deej had outgrown this shit.

I 100% support clowning on Deej when he gets like this but multiple threads with dumb titles kind of undercuts Forks's claim to be doing it for all the poor posters who otherwise can't access the rap thread.

Matt DC, Wednesday, 31 January 2018 09:16 (ten months ago) Permalink

i respect deej's point as far as it extends to obscurantism and anti-cataloguery but this whole showdown is quite funny

Alderweireld Horses (darraghmac), Wednesday, 31 January 2018 09:37 (ten months ago) Permalink

Locked the boring streep rap thread because UMS requested it like a week ago (sorry man).

And then locked the 2018 Rolling Boring Face Tat Rap for Rap and for Face Tats but Mostly for Rap because I felt that deej would continue to blather if he didn't get his way. But then I unlocked it because I really don't think anything's settled and don't want to abuse my mod privileges in deciding what's best for ilx's rap community.

^^^take this idea and extend it to all threads

call all destroyer, Thursday, 15 February 2018 02:40 (nine months ago) Permalink

context:

- no regular rap thread poster besides forks thinks rap thread should be split in 2. his own motivations, besides a vague animosity towards deej, are unclear to me. i personally think forks is a great guy who does a lot for the board (updating dozens of spotify playlists out of pure generosity). just wish he would not try to split my favourite rolling genre thread in two for no apparent reason, as it makes it very confusing to follow!

- decade+ long tradition of naming rap threads riffing on trends in 'lcd rap' is good-natured fun, bickering over particulars of the name in early january a part of the tradition. this has never resulted in a split before. the names speak to posters' simple pleasure in trendwatching, as well as a more trad 'popist' critical pov that is reluctant to dismiss 'low' forms of the genre out of hand

- despite naming convention, it's well-known that music posted in the threads is not exclusive to street rap (as a scroll through any years' thread would immediately confirm), and the supposed bias towards street rap is a misrepresentation. as in any rolling genre thread, links to music will elicit opinions and critical perspectives. imo this is a feature not a bug!

in conclusion, please lock the thread. thanks <3
