We've seen too many previously "normal" posters go off the cliff and commit RCGroups suicide by poking the mods, to think that everyone remains unchanged, here.

Yeah - but I've always be boringly repeatable, madsci, even when I was young!

Basically, running to Momma, methinks!

An example is the plain nastiness that has arisen from appenders on LTUP in the last few years, who can't even accept that others are able to think different than themselves (just like the Libs/Socialists/Dems/Repubs/partisan/etc venom that gets poured out from many of you guys.)

Anyway, I've stated my view - and I'm not going to play any more 'Wrightme/Goat' style of treadmill games - just because you can't accept that others have a different opinion and feel you have to blather on until someone dies of boredom..
No, that is not accurate.


Reporting does not require ANY type of 'prickly skin' nature. It doesn't even require the reporter to actually be offended, upset, or anything emotional about a post at all. It simply needs a person to see a post, recognize it possibly violates a rule, and then clicking the link to send it for moderator review. YOUR post alters that, by either being 'clean,' or by being seen to have an infraction. I think, for the most part, the SAME persons are populating LTUP as were populating it back when you weren't earning points.

Further, unless you continue to earn points, it is most likely that the reality is that you DO find it easy to post in a way that avoids rule infractions.


As for the 'games,' piffle. I accept that you have an opinion that isn't in line with my own. I also believe that your opinion is flawed, and isn't based in facts.

ROFL!


The double-meaning that is now so obvious to me, was not such when I typed it.

You said it is supposedly 'out of control.' Well, what is it, and why do you feel it is 'out of control?'
Every time I reply to a LTUP righty's post, one of you think it is a personnal attack. Thankfully the mods lately have been calling BS to your and madaci's frivolous reportings.

Hyperbole.


Um, what reportings do you think you refer to?

How have you determined that I and madsci have done any action whatsoever like that?

I don't have proof. But I can guess you two have reported my posts.....frequently. And madsci was saying that I personally attacked when I said conservatives had no idea what they were taking about in the education funding topic and can only assume it was reported. But I got no notice to edit it from the mods and am assuming they are calling BS to you guys finally.

Another example. I said a person was clueless for saying that anyone that wanted early voting is lazy. That got reported too. Again. Another example of frivolous reporting. Such a joke.

Huh? I would expect that calling another RCG member 'clueless' is a rule infraction. If that gets reported and warned, that isn't 'frivolous,' it is expected.

Madsci's Exclusionary Rule of Causes or Motives:

For each observed action, there exist at least two possible, incompatible, motives, or causes, where both can not simultaneously be true. This effect is due to the severe bandwidth reduction involved by observing only the outcome, not the causes of the observed action.


In other words, you didn't consider another equally likely, very possibly a more likely possibility, that I simply didn't report that post.

By failing to consider all the possible causes for your not receiving a point, you incorrectly assumed that the, "Mods were calling BS to my reporting"

If the post was never reported, and I certainly didn't report it, then the Mods never even got involved.

See? False premise on your part, therefore false conclusion.

If you got pointed, it broke a rule in a Mod's opinion. As I stated before, you could always appeal a point, unless you edited it.

i said it was an assumption. And it's anything but baseless guesses based on the number of times I've edited my responses to you and Madsci.

In regards to the member who said that early voting is only for the lazy, I, and I think most of LTUP, would agree with my assertion on his post. And that it was reported is entirely frivolous. One could even argue he did a personal attack on me by accusing me of being lazy because I early voted. But the pair of balls hanging in my sack are tougher than that (of course I didn't report him).

A moderator felt this post violated the following rule: Personal Attack. Show it to me anyway.

No, it IS baseless. There is NO way for you to know who reported a post that gets warned, unless a reporter tells you .

Whether any number of LTUP participants agree or disagree with a post you make, is irrelevant as to whether it is reportable and warned.


When you assume that either MS or I report replies that you post to us, you are operating in a worldview where someone must be offended by your post to click the report button. That is a false worldview. NO ONE need be offended by a post, for it to be reported and warned. In fact, someone who has no idea what the discussion is actually about can click the button, on the sole basis that they recognize a rule infraction in a post.

I can make educated guess on who reported what based the post in question. And it is clear to me who is sensitive on this board

What past history is that? IIRC, I have claimed to have reported posts that were racist and one thread starter that was provoking another poster. Beyond that, I do not believe that you have any evidence of my reporting history. If you do, please bring it up.

Why assume that your post was reported only once?
