dctim is now also Forum Admin

Post  dctim on Thu Sep 02, 2010 7:18 am

I am honored that Markus has decided that I am up to this responsibility.

No vulgarity, no personal attacks, keep it PG-13 or below. If something looks offensive to me or someone messages me that it looks offensive to them - it gets booted.

If you see the text "*removed*" appearing where your post used to be, it is my doing.

Kalisiin,

If Aaron is banned from the forum, I believe you should be too. You mentioned to me in an email that Aaron would be banned from WG for what he said. I'm not sure that you realize it, but you would be too. You seem incapable of posting anything with swearing.

My advice (and you get it whether you like it or not, just like the rest of us were subjected to both of you ranting at each other) to both of you is this: GROW UP!

Tim and Markus: If you find this objectionable, can I ask you to leave it on long enough that the two offending parties both have a chance to read it. Then by all means, please delete it.

Oh come now no personal attacks? I just hope you don't start getting all restrictive. I say let them yell and scream at each other and if someone complains tell them to suck it up. Don't turn this into a WG forum. Please. Free speech means you don't always like what someone else says.

Free speech does NOT give a person the right to constantly stalk, harass and abuse others. THAT is what was happening here.

You just let him get under your skin. Don't you realize he is entertained by ticking you off. If you do not dignify him with a response he will sooner or later stop. It might take a good year or two but it will happen. he was just trying to get a rise out of you and he did it. You are giving him what he wanted. Yes it is not right but that is the proper way to deal with it. An ignore feature on the forums would be nice though. It would have solved everything.

Mostly, yes. But an ignore feature would not have solved this problem, as he was posting personal information about me that may well have placed my life/safety in danger. But let's talk about something else, I don't really want to re-visit this, okay?

Yes, posting personal info is going too far. What is wrong with the guy? I'm sure he has some serious mental problems and something you said inadvertantly set him off. It is the only explanation for such behavior I can think of. Sorry to see this happen. May you be at peace now. Don't hold it against him, he obviously has some issues.
