Well, well, well, @SwitchOnTwitch, if you want to levy a formal complaint then this just became a very serious matter indeed. I will say, though, as the accused party in this spectacle, I maintain every right to defend myself. Unfortunately for you, however, you've challenged me in my own post, and now you'll need to support your complaint in our very first instance of:
Village Idiot: @SwitchOnTwitch
Alright, let's get this started. This looks like an open and shut case, but we have to go through the motions anyway. *Bangs gavel*
Okay, so the prosecution has stated that the Defendant has violated rule 14 of the SCB forums. They've also handily provided a link to the actual rule itself, so let's take a look here:
14. Formatting: For the sake of maintaining the clarity of our forums, when posting content that is copied from another outlet or source, we ask, that it be formatted in a presentable and professional manner. This means when you create a post, you must remove the old formatting from the previous source it has been copied from and re-present it when pasted here.
Additionally, when creating a post, we ask that it have more content than just a link. For example, you could provide your thoughts on the linked information or a brief summary of whats found in the link.
That seems pretty clear-cut to me, but what does the Defense have to say about their non-compliance with this rule?
Your Honor, the Defendant would like point out that the wording for Rule 14 indicates that it entirely in reference to the re-posting of content from another site, and as to avoid any formatting issues, the re-poster must take the time to format the posted content into a readable manner, devoid of it's original formatting. There is really no other way to read this rule other than the method I the Defendant have just described, and since this post is not sourced from another site, this rule is non-applicable. Therefore, this complaint is entirely lacking in logic or reason, and seems to only maintain a singular purpose: to slander the Defendant.
Whoa there, I won't be having any additional counter-charges added on to this case. I do see reason in your initial counter-statement, though. However, the Prosecution still has three points that haven't been addressed. Would the Defendant like to continue?
Yes, I would like to address the rest of their supporting points in due order:
While bullet points are "cool", numerical lists are far superior, as represented by the list of rules the Prosecution linked to in their initial complaint.
While orange text means moderation, gold text is the standard for a flat-out beat down in Moderation Court, and by no means a "troll" comment.
I'll fuk'n wreck you m8
Your Honor, the Defense rests.
Alright, I think I've seen enough. This case started out as a complaint for a rule violation, but turned into a straight murder in my courtroom. Prosecution, I've been convinced that this complaint should've been dismissed in it's entirety, and by allowing it to progress this far in court, I've only allowed you to be embarrassed in front of your peers. I will allow closing statements from the Defendant, and then we will end with your sentencing.
Thank you, Your Honor. In closing:
Brutal. Now to end this continued embarrassment of the Prosecution, we will bypass the judgement from the Jury, and immediately sentence you to death, so that you will never need to face whatever friends you have left after receiving this level of humiliation. Court dismissed! *Bangs gavel*
