    When will people learn that annoying the owner of this forum is the fastest way to not being allowed to post here?

    Some people you are really not allowed to be a smartass too. Like policemen, judges, Zeus, a Great White Shark, and J.

    The number one rule here is do not piss off or annoy J. Learn it. This is not a democracy. The rules may not be fair, but they are clear. Follow the rule and you can stay. Break it, and go somewhere else.

    To RJ it means something, to me it means something else. It's one of those stories I tell and then at the end of it, people say "that's it?". I hate those stories.

    ok, but I vote that before you change, you have to tell the story.

    There was a very interesting article I read years ago about transparent moderation and it is the exact opposite of this. The theory was that all moderation just happened and there was no explanation because in the long run it creates more conflict than it is worth.

    I think what's about to happen is going to be very transparent.

    (In light of my belief that this thread will not be locked, I should rephrase this as "In before banning")

    I don't know why J would ban me. All I did was report the post. He brought the topic up here. I never brought it up anywhere nor did I expect anything to happen. But if someone brings up a topic in a public forum they should expect it to be discussed.

    What is so non-transparent? You are acting like a petulant child and annoying the person who's space you are in. When invited over to someone else's house, do you make it a point to annoy your host and make smartass remarks all night until you are asked to leave? If the situation was any more transparent, you wouldn't be able to read these opaque letters.

    I mean, really. You are trying to pick a fight with the owner, you have moderators telling you to chill out... what more do you want?

    Don't do this. Your spirit name is your source of power. If you change it, you will be someone and something else. Something lesser.

    The first time my wife heard that term, she asked why the room had to be kept so cold.
