Not sure what you dont get. i already said I don't know for certain but can make an educated guess. And your avoidance to my question is hilarious given your stance.

I didn't confirm a thing.


I merely pointed out, that according to you, the answer was already 'known.'



The point you are missing entirely is that IF someone is reporting your rule infractions, then it does not matter who your responses are to. THe infractions are reportable even if they are not responses to persons you choose to 'tone it down' with. And, when you employ your 'theory,' you will soon realize that you will need to 'tone it down' with everyone you respond to, because:

Stipulation, madsci and me. (for the sake of argument)
You: Choose to tone it down with us.
You: Don't tone it down with others.

Your PM Box: STILL receives warnings for posts you respond to others in.


The ONLY sure method to reduce warnings, is to reduce your behavior where it crosses the lines set by the rules. It isn't specific to who you respond to.

ROFL!

There isn't an aspect of it that I 'don't get.'

That does not mean your theory is valid.


If I respond to your question, what would change?

It isn't frivolous to report that, no matter who reports it.

Now, WHY would you love to know who reported you? What would you DO with that information?
I would tone it down in my future responses to that specific user if I knew their skirt would get ruffled every time. As of now, I can guess who but I don't know for certain.

You don't know that to be the case.


No aspect of 'skirt ruffled' is necessary when someone reports a rule infraction. ALL that is needed, is identification of a possible infraction. Your meme is flawed.


The simple fact you are avoiding is: If you don't want warnings, don't break the rules.


It is irrelevant who reports, as ANYONE can report a post that is a likely infraction, and it does not need 'ruffled skirt' to enable reporting. If you don't want warnings, don't break the rules.

You don't know that he doesn't know.

You clearly don't get that I've already said I can't be certain who is reporting me but that I can make a pretty good guess.

See my previous post on what I'd do with the information.

Yes, I do.

He has no way of knowing if his warnings are because someone had 'ruffled skirts.'

No, wrong answer.... you and we all know because he just admitted it.

No, I got that already.

So, if you feel you made a 'pretty good guess,' then you ALREADY have enough information to alter your behavior.


But, unless you alter behavior across the board, you will not achieve a result of 'no warnings.' If you don't want warning points, don't break the rules. It IS that simple. 'Toning it down' with several others, will only remove THOSE interactions from the reportable behavior. You will STILL receive points on your interactions with others, where they are infractions.

Not following your line of reasoning at all.

You said the same thing a bunch of times already in this thread.

Wrong again. It doesn't mean I don't know. It just means I don't have proof,vwhich I have repeatedly acknowledged several times even though you still haven't accepted that fact.

When a user says I publicly attacked them in a light hearted back and forth exchange with only that member then I get a point for it within a hour , I don't think it is that likely that it was a differnet user that reported me. Of course I don't have proof and its possible it was someone else. But I don't think it is that likely.
