    How can I express my dislike of something on the website?

    Several posts here that were made by other posters expressing their dislike of one thing or another have been closed.
    As a reader of this fine publication and subscriber (at least before paypal mysteriously dropped the subscription and then refused all attempts to resubscribe) what is the proper channel/method of expressing my dislike of something going on with this website that concerns me?

    Probably by posting it in the feedback thread or emailing one of the Powers That Be.

    Another option is using Firebug (or similar HTML-editing plugin) or something automatic like FoxReplace (I haven't tried it) to make it look like they wrote different things than they actually wrote.
    Support for my all-pepperjack-cheese food bank charity drive has been lukewarm at best.

    I'm not terribly certain that the OP was alluding to the horrifically foul language emanating from our mustachio'd gentlemanly mouths.

    Clearly, but I'm sure you could arrange some more complicated find-and-replace maneuvers that would make articles about (say) microtransactions read as though they were, instead, about [a new indie visual novel / the top 10 alt-fire modes in FPSes].

    The threads that have been closed have tended to include personal attacks against writers in them that went a bit over the line. I'm guessing that's why they got closed. Though I agree with the OP that without actually saying as much when closing the thread, it does look a bit like you're just shutting down anything negative about the site (albeit only because there's not much polite, reasoned criticism in this forum - just people happy with RPS and people really angry about it).

    Yarrr, I assume that rage-posts tend to make a moderator's mouse-pointer gravitate towards the delete button somewhat. Then the OP will come back later and complain that their politely-written post got unfairly removed. :) Dang kids.

    Is there any other way? Email doesn't make your e-penis grow.

    Besides, where would the site subtitles come from?

    Logically, what follows is that real mail makes your e-peen grow.
    There is no need to lick the stamps...
