    As a lawyer ... you're really gonna justify semantics?
    Or should I say, you're gonna justify semantics, as a lawyer.
    Orrr.. I can see you justifying semantics, as you're a lawyer.

    Either way.. calling someone a fool isn't name calling.. it's descriptive.
    Had I called him a cock smoking bytch... then you could say I was name calling.

    Slippery slope, Cak.
    He said I was ignorant and illogical.
    Is that name name calling under the 'fool' title.
    What about comparing me to a 5 y/o?
    Each one of these are way off base (in my humble opinion) but still just descriptions and analogies.

    Let em have the 1st Amendment .

    I explained the policy. Not debating it. You're smart enough to see the distinction even if you disagree. Time to move on.

    I get where Cak's coming from though, he can't moderate on a case by case basis. So while posters like you and I are fine with the name calling, and insults others get butt hurt and take it to the extreme. If you really want to call me a name or insult me just send a pm, can't promise I'll ever read it since i never check those but I guess it gives you a chance to let me know what you think about me lol

    If only we had a method for one on one conversation between members.

    It could be built into the software relatively easily. We'd probably want to give it a cryptic title though so folks won't over use it.

    :thinking:

    Something like "personal message" or "PM" for short.


    I really don't have a dog in the race, but I'm running out of ways to bich about our HC

    Bob already beat ya to the punch with this innovation, Kyss.
    That said.. I don't resort to name calling but if descriptive terms are being scrutinized I might need to be careful... as I now wonder if the word petulance almost got me the ban hammer.

    deleting posts isn't much of a deterrent … givem a week or two time out and maybe they appreciate this place a little more and act civilized …. or not.


    Save the asshattery for the NSZ ...
