"in the center of the garden" thread
www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=25&t=3107&m=1 -->www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=25&t=3107&m=1">http://www.evcforum.net/cgi-bin/dm.cgi?action=msg&f=25&t=3107&m=1

that one. i think it's way too specific to take residence in my genesis bible study. if we just shove everything pertaining to genesis into this thread it will be a total abortion. it's meant to be a discussion of the whole book, as a whole, not every little word that might be in it. if you want to encourage discussion on this topic, don't try to squish it into the other topic.

Re: brenna's suspension
that particular occasion really fucking pissed me off, actually. i was trying to be very calm about a difficult situation and express real and deep emotion to crash and this jerk comes in and tries to destroy everything i've said by attacking my chosen typeface. not to mention that this happened not even a few weeks ago with a very important and considered post and one of the very few i actually get to make withing my fucking field and nobody did anything about it.

at any rate, at least my short suspensions tend to coinside with naps or sleeptime and i've got shit to do anyways.

Re: brenna's suspension
the moderators have to be much harder on evolutionists than on creationists.

i don't really qualify as either, and i kind of qualify as both.

the failure of moderators to behave responsibly and instead punishing people for being attacked is really not something i should expect just because i happen to deny YEC.

that's nice.

florida law actually does protect self defense, though. just so you know.

Re: brenna's suspension
how i've been acting lately? what the hell is that supposed to mean?

i was involved in a serious and delicate conversation in which i was paying particular attention to how i was speaking and some guy comes out of left field and attacks my typeface and says absolutely nothing about what i said. i'll agree that my response was out of line, but the fact that this is the second time in the last month this has happened and he was not punished until three hours after the fact because someone else complained about it and not because any admin actually felt that he was behaving out of line.

and if i'm so entirely ill-behaved and useless, then just ban me and get it over with.

Re: Take It Elsewhere
there were no creationists in the discussion that got brenna suspended

i agree. it was more an issue of the thing that should have been settled two years ago when percy said that forum guidelines in no way require proper capitalization. i would suggest that style complaints should be ruled off-topic unless they really, really cause inability to be read like giant fucking sparkles or navy blue text on the navy blue background.

in re suspension of jar
it seems to me that the title "General Discussion Of Moderation Procedures" should be open to any discussion of moderation procedure. the "12.0" part should express that this thread has been through many incarnations and is more than able to contain any number of topics of various breadths.

i'd just like to express my displeasure at moose throwing his own weight around. a discussion between admins in a moderation procedure thread shouldn't be able to be acted on by one of the admins engaged in the discussion. this isn't the first time i've seen this kind of behavior from moose, or the first time i've made this suggestion either.

Re: brenna's suspension
I imagine with enough self-justification we all could rely on "extreme aggravation" as a reason for ad hominem. But as with most things, there simply has to be some boundaries. And after two previous warnings were issued, followed by, "grow up you fucking cripple," pretty much will guarantee some kind of negative reaction.

i don't think anyone is actually arguing that i shouldn't have been suspended. i think the biggest complaint is that no one did anything about his off-topic and useless remark that has been repeatedly warned against for the last two fucking years.

Mark was issued a suspension that mirrored Brenna's.

3 hours after the fact by a different moderator and grudgingly, from my reading of the related post.

Re: brenna's suspension
i'm really suggesting that people stop giving me shit for my stylistic decisions. i don't bother anyone else for theirs. and i rarely even bother to correct peoples' poor grammar. my typeface has been approved by the board administrator and that should be that.

Re: Question about Offensive Content
i think it's generally acceptable to have a reasonable standard of decency. but then we have a reasonable standard of a lot of things here and that doesn't always work out because there are a few levels of reasonable here.

i think if the content is hidden, that is acceptable. it's available to those who want to see it and hidden for those at work or with tender sensibilities. often, off topic posts are deleted, i think this should be amended.
