JFK Forum: Rules of Behaviour and other points

Recommended Posts

Amazing that you noticed Blair's post but missed mine which was immediately above it. I'm not into hairsplitting semantics; you participated in a less than friendly exchange with him on this page of this thread so saying, “I do not recall participating in an argument with Blair” was rather disingenuous, or were you really not smart enough to figure what I was referring to?

You still haven't told me which forum rule my signature violates. You are a Moderator, thus you can enforce the rules not make up new ones or give arbitrary orders. So until you or another Mod./Admin. provides a legitimate rationale for changing the quote, it's going to stay the way it is. And as I've told you due to your repeated violation of the rules I do not recognize your moral authority as a Mod. Pat agreed with you about Robert's sig. but Mr. Morrow reiterating his faux wager but it is bit different from me mocking him and his silly 'bet' in mine. This is analogous to Jack hypothetically having included his 'hung by their thumbs' comment in his sig. vs. my inclusion of it in mine.

Len, can you not envision effects of an option available to all members that might have made it more difficult for me to notice your posts than to read Blair's?

You are recently off moderation. You have refused a polite request, twice, to act in a civil manner in the best interests of this community.

You admit you know that this request has come from more than one moderator, and that two other members have cooperated in implementing it.

I have escalated this incident to the attention of all moderators and admins. You seem to assume there have been no other deliberations about

the issue of inappropriate member signatures, aside from comments posted by Pat Speer and I.

You have acted on your assumptions with incomplete information, to your own disadvantage.

I have no idea what you are babbling about, you obvious don't have me on 'ignore'.

Two "polite requests" from a moderator whose moral authority I do NOT recognize due to his hypocritical violation of the very rules he enforces against others.

You admit you know that this request has come from more than one moderator, and that two other members have cooperated in implementing it.

I made no such admission, do you have trouble understanding what you read? I noted that Pat's request was directed at Robert and that the context of the quote in his sig. was different from the same one in mine. I have no idea who the 2nd member you referred to is

Another Mod./Admin., one whom I respect, asked me to alter my sig. thus I will due so, it has nothing to do with your threats.

Could someone please tell me why there is a "0 warning points" under the number of my posts? Did I upset the ancient gods somehow, or just miss something?

Thanks in advance,

When a forum member is banned for whatever reason, is it necessary to summarily delete all of his or her old posts?

Isn't that kind of Orwellian?

Dave

Apart from Peter - or if it is requested - I don't know of this happening. Even if requested, we really would prefer not to do that.

What instance were you refering to?

Ken - only the poster sees this message, when he posts and when signed in. Nobody else can see other people's points or zeroes.

Look - I can see mine!

Is there a protocol surrounding deleted threads?

If I start a thread that goes "sideways" on me -- e.g. Dave Reitzes' "New JFK article in Skeptic" -- can I arrange to have the entire thread deleted, which is what has apparently happened with the Reitzes thread?

So David Reitzes got himself banned.

Is it at all possible to recover work I posted on his "Skep Mag" thread?
