Once a poster was reported for "misquoting" me by changing my post from "I chuckled" to . That's not a problem at all. Especially because this poster was compiling multiple posts from people expressing that they found something funny and changing them all to . No infractions or warnings over that... the poster involved may not even be aware that his/her post was reported because the mods took no action.

It was not a mod... a regular political poster.

I'm sure the poster had his or her reasons. Perhaps that poster had recently been infracted for a similarly stupid instance of "misquoting," and reported that post as a subtle protest against the inconsistent and often capricious moderating standards in play? Just spit balling.
