Well...maybe not. Blast off in t-minus 2,1,......

That's not all that's been blown out of proportion. Wink

Good job, Tarty. Good job. Granny Rev and Uncle Ferd taught you well. Hug

You're welcome. Thank you for reminding me that if someone's "free-speech" is unpopular then they are shown to the door. I've appreciated all the empathy you've shared. It's cheered me up. Thanks, bro.

No go fuck yourself like a good little lapdog.

You do realise that is the case for every forum ever right? You do realise we can't cater to everyone and that no forum ever could because some people have completely opposing opinions right?

How would you work it? Everyone who says we should change the way the forum is run gets their wish, no questions asked? You even think that is possible?

So now we've clarified that their always has to be some people that don't see the forum run the way they should be because you have people with completely opposite view then how would you handle it? Tell them they should stay and suffer in a forum that doesn't suit their needs? Is that really a great option?

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.

The forum should be run the way Seth wants it. It's his place.

It is to my knowledge. I know he's in contact with KC and when I talked to him he seemed to say he wanted it to be as free as possible and the banhammer used as sparingly as possible but with trolls removed. I made moves to do exactly that but stepped down as Admin before they were implemented.

It's hard to do exactly that, and do it effectively, when some people make such a big deal about banning particular members.

Yeah, well now if someone gets a "no" answer to wanting, and can't accept it, and starts a forumwide issue about it then they risk falling foul of Rule 5. That's what I like about it. It covers the trolls, and the complainers as well. Smile

He's just the landlord. Squatters, tenants and roommates need to work out their differences themselves. Wink
