I could well be overruled, but I see nothing in Transcend's post that is suspension-worthy, though it's obviously a sensitive subject.


Kudos. Passed the first test on objectivity. :-)

If i were to call you a ban-hammer would that be a personal insult? I was going to make a joke but then I had to wonder if it was an insult.

This rant by poker player Danial N. There is a funny part in it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxaQnv0GVUQ im not saying it apply's here, but it reminded me of the ban-hammer thing.

DT Rule 15: A ban on either site will apply to both sites, and it makes no difference if you use different names. If you're banned on one site, and complain on the other during the ban, we will take strong action.

HotBlonde was suspended on 2/16 and there she is on DT doing just that and it wasn't a typo. Instead of enforcing the rules one of our administrators joins in the discussion with her. Now we're digging up two year old posts and issuing suspensions.

Great way to celebrate the new appointees.

On your planet, maybe. Not on this one..



First of all... I do NOT want EvenBob suspended for this personal insult. There can be no argument that calling someone 'from another planet' in response to them making a point, is a personal insult. But comments like this are the salsa that goes with the chips. If we only had chips here at this party, who would want to be at this party?
As far as HB posting on DT to bemoan her suspension here on WoV, yes, it is a clear and blatant violation of the rules. I believe the Wiz has used the nuclear option in the past. I agree with those that think HB should NOT have been suspended for calling me 'not a nice guy'. Of course it is a mild personal insult, but one I am willing to take, and defend myself against it if I felt it was necessary.
I am guessing you will find dozens of such 'personal insults' if you scour the threads between B9 and s2. I am not interested in doing so.
Axelwolf is one sly guy! He is climbing to the top of my 'favorite WoV posters' list! On my computer there is an HB between the N and the G!

The post you see has been edited. It appears that the suspendable post had a single letter transposed. If you read my post you will understand.

1.) Since you like hanging out at Diversity Tomorrow so much, please join me in my campaign to more actively post there!

2.) I am waiting for the Wizard to determine said, "Strong action," over at DT. I don't feel right exercising Administration over there as I was not active on that site until, you know, yesterday.

3.) It's Diversity Tomorrow, who the Hell really cares? Do you truly care? I hope not. How many active posters are over there, four-and-a-half? I think that Rule was made when the expectation was that Forum to be a bit more active.

4.) I don't personally know anything about the DorothyGale Suspension, but it is a Suspension of a Member who herself seems to have no problem with taking a three-day Suspension. It seems the Wizard discussed Suspending her for said comment before actually doing it. Seems symbolic, but I don't know the backstory.

That having been said, I can assure everyone here that nobody else has to worry about retroactive Suspensions. My limit is generally catching something within two days, unless someone goes back and self-Edits an earlier post, that's obviously different.

The fact that you think there is a possibility of getting suspended for what you just said........ Says something.

Perhaps some people can sense when the Wizard is in a mood.

Or perhaps you are scared of the new moderator.



It is a sensitive subject, and all of this started because of different people's perceptions of over the line. What I said may seem harmless to some, others could see it another way.

Hard to believe she'd care as from reading the non-blocked threads her posting has been very sporadic over the last few months, this after a rather lengthy hiatus. Don't recall if there was drama that precipitated the prior break. Having no statute of limitations on posts is a bit awkward. Just my opinion, and I do know what opinions are like...;-(
