For one member to suggest changing someone's title to "Cock Sucker", receiving 17 rep for it, then a moderator actually changing their title to "Dick Sucker" and later "Idiot"... I can see this as nothing more than two people egging each other on, bullying a third, resulting in an abuse of power.
I am probably in the minority in terms of my outlook of what has happened, and I know it all occurred in the lounge, but I feel it is important that I communicate that at least one person on this site has seen this, shaken their head, and lost an awful amount of respect for those involved. I hope they enjoyed the time they took to bully a (albeit naive) new member, as that circlejerking episode is now front-and-centre on the home page of the site.
Welcome to the Caffeine Lounge! This is our off-topic forum for discussions related to non-programming topics including: sports, current events, games, music, movies, TV, food, drink, geek related (toys & technology), debates, life events, rants, and occasionally religion and politics.
The caffeine lounge can get a little wild, but that doesn't mean it's a free for all. Keep the name calling, trolling, bashing, and personal attacks out, and try to contribute worthwhile comments to the discussions. Have fun, but keep it real yo! TL;DR - We talk about stuff, don't be a jerk.
