: First let me admit I have not read all the postings between
: Ultra 7-21 and Beloq. But I have seen enough to know that
: they both seriously need a "timeout." It would probably
: be for the best if they not talk to each other until they have
: calmed down a bit.
: Second, I am not actually in favor of censorship, in public forums.
: But I don't necessarily consider this public. Micah was kind enough
: to create it, and we should take some personal responsibility.
: If someone uses a swear-word, and letters are *-ed out, I think we
: can all figure out what the word is. No big deal, right?
: Now, a message for Ultra 7-21 and Beloq. Folks, you are taking
: these things WAY TOO PERSONALLY! So someone disagrees with you,
: so what?! Ultra, your "I will take him down" attitude is what I
: call "The Self-Anointed." This isn't a fight where you can beat an
: opponent. With email, they can always shoot back. It never ends!
: If someone is truly
: causing trouble, let's trust Micah to deal with it. By creating
: this, he takes the responsibility to maintain it. Beloq, ridiculing
: someone should only be done to someone you know and trust to
: take it in the spirit intended. A stranger might not understand you
: are joking. Lack of facial cues and voice-tone are a problem with
: email.
: Lastly, Micah, thanks again for running a killer site, and starting
: this forum page. I try not to use it often, because I only like to
: use it when I think I have something to offer, not just post to see
: my name. I think the "dirty-word screen" is probably a good idea for now,
: and maybe after things die down, you can remove it. I appreciate
: all the work you put into this, and visit regularly. Keep up
: the good work!
