Also, to clarify, I don't think Stitches is boring but think his advice to French to defer to members with 'clout' would make the forum more boring. That said, I have no idea what the original issue was.

IMO, being relatively civil is not deferring. There is a wide spectrum between deferring and being intentionally antagonistic. I'm trying for a happy medium myself, and instead of amp'ing things up when someone is repeatedly antagonistic or rude to me, will use the mechanism many of us should have all along: the mods.

I was editing my post as you wrote this. As I have no idea as to the nature of the initial conflict, I missed out on the background/context of the animosity. I just thought the way Stitches framed his advice was generally un-democratic.

And you are absolutely right.

laugh.gif I left myself wide open for that one. mwink[1].gif

Frenchy in his previous incarnation was so aggressively rude, so bizarrely antagonistic, just such a dickhead, that for a couple of years he was the only person on my ignore list.

That said, this latest incarnation seems well-behaved and he's got a clean slate in my book.

Is there an actionable verb for 'boring'? As in 'inflicting boredom on others'. I can think of different ways to phrase it but the perfect word for it is elusive. I don't mean just 'this is a boring conversation' or 'boring movie' but a situation where one is intentionally boring the other? Like a drive-by shooting or a mugging but instead of using a gun the perpetrator bores you and is only rewarded by your dissatisfaction.

we cant all be hoss, hoss. nomesayn?

Everything is democracy in America, motherfucker. EVERYTHING. It's probably the law. I should sue everybody just because you said that. Go to North Korea or Iran or somewhere horrible if you're going to think like that.

Nope. That shit's like baseball and Marilyn Monroe.

Democracy, baseball, Marilyn Monroe.

One of these things is not like the others,
One of these things just doesn't belong,
Can you tell which thing is not like the others.

Flag it, mang.

Speaking of the Red Flag: Instead of calling it the "snitch button", I'd rather think of it as "Quality Control". Not that we can really enforce Quality Poasting, but still, it alerts the relevant mods to the post and is easier than scrolling though the thread.

BTW, re: that thread, I read and thoroughly enjoyed the first 10 pages and then it passed me by. The last couple of pages (including the flagged post) seemed OT and if I were Manton (or another DH member), I would have hacked away those last couple of pages (at least!) and not lost a moment's sleep. To me, if you're posting in a DH-started thread then please bring your A-game or relevant questions to the discussion or stay on the sidelines. Just my opinion, though.

I'd just like to echo FLMM/Thomas on the flagging of posts. It's by far the best way to get us to take a look at something that's a potential problem. We simply can't see every post in every thread, so I'm sure there's a lot that deserves moderation but slips through the cracks. By flagging it, you make sure at least one of us takes a look at it.
