I take spreading private information and lies very seriously, even on other forums. It is definitely nuke-worthy.



I seem to recall a mod here chimed in to the effect that people on this board were not likely to be sanctioned for the content of posts they made on other boards.

IIRC I had asked whether someone posting on another board something negative about this board or a member of this board would be subject to suspension.

Mission also told people not to tell people they have been blocked and to just block them. Unfortunately Mike didn't agree to that.

I thought it was a good idea. Saying you're blocked is just a drama queen childish move.

I haven't blocked you yet. However, you'll
be the first to know if I ever do..

I rest my case.

I haven't blocked anyone, I haven't had to. I can just ignore them if need be.

There's has been a few people that post lots of gibberish I have considered blocking them, but instead I just try to skip over their posts'

So you don't know the giddy pleasure of
blocking. Ask any of the scores who have
me blocked. They'll tell you it's wonderful
and fulfilling..

I suspend without complaints lots of times. Probably the majority of times.



You're implying you did not receive a complaint [from Norm] regarding KJ's posts on ZZF....but I highly doubt you're on that site just browsing around and/or posting. Plus, I don't think there are any privacy issues saying I PM'd someone, someone PM'd me, or someone PM'd someone.

Is there actually a rule about "what you can or can't say on other forums [regarding WOV]"? And I certainly haven't seen any posts from KJ that would require a 'nuclear option' to be invoked.

I'm like you here. Never blocked, but have occasionally thought about it.

Sucks to hear about KewlJ. I would be a lot more disappointed if he kept planning to actively post. Worst loss in a long while.

It's a shame KewlJ is gone, whatever the circumstances. If we ranked people in terms of value to the Forum, I just went up one slot, as well as 90% of the people here, I'll put it that way.

I'd wish him luck, but his skills far surpass any need for luck.

I have read some of the stuff on other forums and it seems as I stated earlier--that it takes two to feud. I'm not sure the exact nature of the "personal information" that caused the nuke to be imposed, but there was a lot of really negative stuff said from the other side. One side of the feud would not exist without the other. I would hope at the very least that the Wizard would consider any insults here by the other party as unacceptable also. KewlJ is not here to defend himself and usually that means say whatever you want about him. Since this is a feud spreading across a variety of forums, I don't think allowing the opportunity for the other party to come here and insult him freely is a good idea.

I know wizard has autonomy but I'm upset by this..... It seems like overstepping the bounds of free speech , so what happens if I meet up with a member in real like and we bash content in this forum- can I be banned? I'm not sure how you can be kicked off for things said in other forums, but again obviously it's his call I just don't think it's right, I don't know all the facts but seems like norm and wizard have some sort of strong friendship or long history, just my two cents
No longer hiring, donít ask because I wonít hire you either
