In OOT it used to mean having stuff that happened on 2p2 brought into real life, but it seems like people also use it to mean posting RL info on 2p2.

Just don't be an ******* and keep 2p2 stuff on 2p2 and real life to real life.

Re: Question about trainwrecking

So let me clear this up a bit, when used here on 2p2 it generally means what others said. Your real life getting intermixed on here.

Examples are you ***** about your Girlfriend and tell us you are cheating on her by blowing some dude in a back ally, she finds out because someone from here knows her and links her the post or she just finds it. Well choo choo mother ****er..you got hit by a train.
This is a total disaster is it not?

The exception to this rule is if someone trainwrecks you , this is where the "formal" definition seems to skew , IE you can't come on the forums post some personal stuff about a poster and think its going to fly.

But if you come here and make a bad choice , we have no responsibility to remove it, I've gone so far as to have to respond to Mat about this and justify actions and the threads in question only 1 has been deleted in the 11 years I modded.

Golden Rule of the tubes: don't air your dirty laundry on here unless your willing to have your family, friends and coworkers find it. Cause I promise you they will

Re: Question about trainwrecking

It seems that the 2+2 definition, at least according to post #53 is at odds with any other accepted definition.

The normal definition: Something so disastrous that, metaphorically it resembles a crashed train, is perfectly logical and can be easily intuited by anyone with a reasonable grasp of English.

The alternative definition: Posting personal information (yours or someone else's) seems completely arbitrary and could in no way be determined intuitively.

This may explain why there is now a 50+ post thread discussing something that (under a more comprehensible description) would fairly obviously, when the information related to someone else, be disallowed on any reasonable forum.

Re: Question about trainwrecking

Wiki, how exactly do you propose that this reasonable forum to which you appeal control what people do outside the forum? How does it disallow someone from anonymously contacting someone's boss or wife with a link to a thread?

I think you have somehow misunderstood what I wrote.

Any reasonable forum would have a rule that would stop people tying someone's real life persona to their anonymous forum name on the forum.

Clearly they cannot stop anyone who knows the true identity of a forum user passing on that information off site.

Why do you assume it is reasonable to expect anonymity?

I'm not sure why you're bringing that up here. That's not trainwrecking. Plus the T&C prohibit violations of privacy, and 2p2 will generally remove personal details upon request.

I brought it up simply to point out that just about all forums have such terms and it was only the fact that some people at 2+2 are using a completely non standard definition of 'trainwrecking' that is causing confusion.

You should ask the people who craft forum T&C's, if you are really interested.
