Quit the name calling, please; this and your post above it. I'm giving the politics threads a little latitude for the moment so I'm stopping with a warning. For now. Thanks.
Since when is calling some a maroon an insult?
Figures that you have no clue what maroon reference cues.
From The Urban Dictionary :
1. A color between red and brown
2. A stupid person; a fool
1. She's wearing maroon pants
2. "What a maroon." -- Bugs Bunny
Obviously you meant definition 2 both times your said it. Not my first turnip truck on slang. If you have some other cultural reference, it's obscure compared to this, and the common perception of any third party is going to be personal insult. Take a few days and think about it; I'm reversing my decision.
There isn't much for him to think about; some poster comes here, writes negative and insulting crap about people all the time (with just a hint of some kind of moral superiority and rants about eliminating the opposition in Hitler-esque fashion) probably will push people to the edge of the insult line. One got a few warnings up front for his behavior; the other uses the same word twice and gets suspended. I am sure that he is tremendously hurt by that...
None of my clients know if they will be in the country election day
Then they can request an absentee ballot like they have been able to do for decades. No need to risk security of an election because people are too lazy to do that. But you should never be allowed to vote absentee the first time you vote, and never more than three years in a row,
Sorry you feel I'm being unfair. I wasn't going to suspend billryan, either, but instead of recognizing he was hitting foul balls he wanted to argue that he wasn't making personal insults when he obviously was.
Everybody is tense and polarized over this election, and I'm trying to let people air it out so we're not just a mass of suspensions, but the faux innocence and derision over being called on his insults gave me little choice. Everyone else has been gracious about their warnings and lightened up; he fought it. So he got the strict interpretation of the rules.
