Suspension Reversed
Hi Suzanne,

I have reversed your suspension on a technicality - current policy is that a warning be issued about a specific Forum Guidelines violation, and that the violation persist, before a suspension is issued. The only exception is obvious spammers.

EvC Forum is a discussion forum, with the emphasis on discussion. The Forum Guidelines state:

  1. Bare links with no supporting discussion should be avoided. Make the argument in your own words and use links as supporting references.

  2. Avoid lengthy cut-n-pastes. Introduce the point in your own words and provide a link to your source as a reference. If your source is not on-line you may contact the Site Administrator to have it made available on-line.

The request that you respond in your own words refers to words that you actually type into the response box, not words that you cut-n-paste from elsewhere, even when those words are your own. This is for three reasons. First, previously composed messages or articles are often only obliquely relevant to the precise point, question or issue raised. Second, there's no way to establish provenance, i.e., to establish that those words are actually your words. And so, third, there's no guarantee that you understand the words you're posting and can respond competently to questions and issues raised in reply.

So please respond to messages in your own words that you type right now, and please start acting more like someone sincerely interested in discussing the topic and less like Sungenis' publicity director.

AdminPhat is the moderator for this thread, I likely won't post to this thread again.

Please, no replies to this message.

EvC Forum Director
