The difference is in what you identify with 'you.'

One describes an action, the other directly insults the person.

I must admit, I do not agree with that ruling. Some posters craft incomprehensible sentences.

The rules have always been debatable, only you're not allowed to debate them.

Exactly. This is not very difficult at all, but it is telling that it has been previously asserted that making a distinction between addressing the post as opposed to addressing the poster is some kind of ploy, or difficult to grasp concept.

It is actually basic discussion 101 territory.

I just went there for one of my "vacation points" and saw that.

I wonder if we can use these "points" for a new TV at Best Buy?

BTW, you get 40 points for having a sock puppet? What else could get you 40 points?

I do not like to see anyone get banned and I know how much he enjoyed RCG.

But this has got to be a mistake. He'll be back I bet once this is all cleared up.

Well the rules say

Troll or Spam Account Immediate ban for being a troll, robot, or spam poster. 40. Hopefully it sticks this time.

And?

I wonder how many more bans it'll really take? I wouldn't be surprised a bit if he's back by noon tomorrow spouting his classic pseudophilosophical, subtly condescending, covertly biased yet clearly targeted garbage.

If possible, I'd like to wait at least a week before I have to use the word "pseudophilosophical" again.

Anyone up for a Viking-style raid on Milford this weekend? Let's go in with torches, corssbows, and those phony horned hats... pour Mountain Dew on his keyboard or something.
