It's ok to be racist, bigot, homophobic, sexist, etc. as long as you put your words in a politically correct phrasing.

To be fair, buz is just being politically correct.

Really? You think the following is politically correct?

Hey Percy,

Percy writes:

I don't really know you, and I don't recall ever having a discussion with you, and I don't recall ever interacting with you in an administrative capacity, . . .

1. Actually you previously and similarly admonished me about using examples of western crimes against third world nations. Seems to be a repeating irritant to you.

2. One of the forum rules is to argue the topic, not the person:

Percy writes:

I think you're still forgetting to take your meds.

That type of post may not foment respectful responses. It would be helpful if you model the type of behavior you want others to copy.


Percy writes:

If you'd like to engage in constructive discussion of the topic of this thread (The Trump Presidency) then I think that'd be great,

The topic has veered off-topic to “A valid reason to vote 3rd Party” before I posted anything. You yourself have participated in this off-topic discussion for several dozen posts.


Percy writes:

You seem very interested in Clinton as a war criminal, so the best way to pursue discussing it would be to open a new thread. Anyone can open a thread in the Coffee House forum. You don't have to propose it first.

I’ve opened many new threads in the past, but thanks for the reminder. Good advice for EVERYbody.


Percy writes:

But let me add that spamming a thread, even your own thread, with the kinds of photos you've been posting thus far for the reasons you have will bring administrative action.

Percy writes:

but if you continue to spam the thread in the way that you have then I will follow the normal administrative procedures for such situations.

a. Precedent: I’ve been posting these type of photos, that ARE supportive evidence, for a long time on the forum (years?). Curiously, you only started to object when I was specifically debating you.

b. “Spamming”?

spamming is the use of electronic messaging systems to send an unsolicited message (spam), especially advertising, as well as sending messages repeatedly on the same site. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spamming

It doesn’t seem my inclusion of photos or cartoons that support my argument can be called ‘spamming.’ The photos were not advertisements, and each of my posts included new material, as opposed to some variation of “please take your medications.” Per the forum’s guidelines we are encouraged to provide evidence for our arguments. Perhaps you are against me presenting TOO much evidence? That would be a strange request in a a debate forum, but perhaps the forum has some technical limitation that I am not aware. If not, then I’m confused. It seems you have a personal definition of ‘spamming’ that I am not familiar with, please provide. Be specific or else I risk running against the forum’s whims again.


Percy writes:

I want EvC Forum to remain a decent place.

a. Repeatedly posting “I think you're still forgetting to take your meds” may not help create a respectful environment for a ‘decent place.” It would be helpful if you model the type of behavior you want others to copy.

b. And since the topics are often about the ugliness of the world, life’s crudity, grown-up debates, etc., . . . then, without arbitrary censorship, how will you maintain the forum to be a decent place AND still discuss the world’s adult matters? If possible, please be specific.


Percy writes:

I’ll be downsizing the photos from your posts in this thread soon.

You originally wrote that you would be DELETING portions of my posts. Thank you for seeing that the photos are not mere “Spam,” whatever that term may now mean, and that they do indeed have value, and thank you for self-correcting your action. We both agree that credible charges of censorship would devalue the forum.

8. Lastly, just a gentle reminder, . . . you do know it is bad form to be both participant and moderator in the same thread, especially while in the middle of a debate. Asking a co-moderator to assist would seem to be a more even-handed action.

Thank you for your time.
