Why Heavens NO !! If I wanted to offend you I would send you a personal message.....How does the siggy offend you?? I'm a nut case and I'm older than you.......and your humor went where?? How about I go through and pick each and every "Siggy" that offends me and report it to you...what are you going to do about it????

 

If you would like me off your site Pubby, I would be more than happy to depart, however, I ask that you would erase me completely from your system....as Serve pro says.... "like it never even happened"

 

 

Have a nice day !!

 

How about this siggy ....

If I continue my very offensive siggy that bullets will fly and I will get suspended and yada,yada,yada. He calls it a "Personal Attack", against who I'm not sure. :wacko:

It's obviously an attack against anyone who considers themselves to be a "Crazy Old Nutcase" and who are also offended by the idea of men who are "against" them.

Only if you are also offended by the idea that men (brothers) are "against" you. If you don't meet both criteria you can't be offended by that.

Just out of curiosity, was the name inspired by someone's near-constant mentioning of bacon-flavored condoms?

 

I was never sure why that kept getting allowed on the site.

Pick, pick, pick. The whole bacon thing is offensive in all its permutations.

 

Referencing and recalling it in any of its permutations is disturbing and I would appreciate folks from bringing it up or reminding anyone or trying to make any points puffing up or slamming down.

 

So if it seems to you like there is a line in the sand ... you can pick, pick, pick or you can go another direction and on your merry way.

 

I've turned my cheek more than once.

To answer your question, I've quoted the relevant parts of pubby's posts.

 

This ruling will be put in place and active beginning immediately with the notation that warnings are the rule for existing violations until Sept. 1st. New violations are another matter.

The cooperation and removal of offending commentary by those members who happened to have placed personal attacks in their signatures is humbly requested. The moderators will begin making changes to the offending signatures beginning on the 15th of August. They will issuing warnings at that time.

I would say the bacon flavored condoms and talk of camel toes someone kept bringing up were slightly offensive.

If management doesn't like somebody's siggy, why not deal with it privately? Why make it an issue?

This is a new rule regarding personal attacks in signatures. I'm pretty sure there has always been a "public notice" thread when a new rule is implemented. The rule may have been provoked by a certain signature line that multiple members were sharing recently, but the rule isn't only for the most recent issue.

 

 

There was no cyberstalking (queue scary organ music) going on, no ganging up on anyone, there was no conspiring. We were cracking bacon jokes. Really people, how silly can you be? Mountain out of a molehill much?

Apparently your idea of ganging up on someone differs from mine. When multiple members each put "Proud member of Brothers Against Crazy Old Nutcases" in their signature, then collectively post insults in The Postman's threads (whether provoked or not) and particularly take a thread completely off topic by posting numerous things about bacon to reinforce the Brothers Against Crazy Old Nutcases motto, I call that ganging up on The Postman. I haven't seen your bacon antics directed at anybody else.

 

 

 

Just because a member starts a thread that you (any member) find annoying does not give you the right to insult that member. A recipient of personal attacks does not have the right to reply with insults. Sometimes we issue bullets, sometimes we issue warnings. We've never been one sided and punished one party but not the other if both were guilty. However, I feel that the lax "tit for tat" attitude of not always issuing bullets has resulted in the playground bullying described above.

 

Particularly, I'm fed up with the constant and continual false accusations that the mods won't do anything to a "favorite few" because we love them, especially when I discover that the member who is making the accusation while complaining about an insult had posted insults and provoked the response. That's why I put my foot down and am taking this more seriously.

Hummh. When you have a member that is annoying the vast percentage of the rest of the site, what is the logic in punishing everybody to accommodate one member's attention needs? You don't need a sledgehammer to kill a pesky fly.

Thanks for posting that Gomer. I think your analysis hit it right square on the head.

 

Those who are resisting it are the one's making a mountain out of a mole hill.

 

We are all responsible for our own actions. I appreciate your clarity Gomer. I don't think anyone can say we didn't give folks ample opportunity to wind down and cease the nastiness. We will make the changes in offending signatures tomorrow and issue warnings. If the individuals are so offended or insist on replacing them with the same or similar, they will be subject to the rule change which simply says that with a personal barb posted in a signature, the violation will be sanctioned on the basis of its appearance in the number of posts that member has. If a member creates a signature and has but one post, they would get one bullet. If they have ten posts; they potentially will earn ten bullets; and if they have 10,000 posts; they could be bulleted 10,000 times.

 

I will say that Barney Fife used to tell us we should nip this stuff in the bud ... We should have. Regardless, there comes a time when I said, enough is enough. I said that about a month and a half ago. I feel the warning was issued then.

The kind and generous thing to do is to ignore the one who annoys. I sometimes wonder if there are folks who come here for company. I just don't get driving a person away from a site instead of putting them on ignore....:huh:

Your first mistake is in thinking we are accommodating his needs. IMO, what you're actually asking us to do is accommodate your need to bash, trash and otherwise demean another human being whom you could, with much less effort than your currently expend, tactfully ignore.

 

I'm sorry he annoyed you. It is not like we haven't suggested time and time again that you ignore him. But instead there are a handful of you who confront him and attack him personally, considering, I can only assume, some sort of sport.

 

My parents clipped this quote from Winston Churchill and pasted on the inside of one of the kitchen cabinets. When feelings got awkward and my brother or I were contemplating some vindictive action, we'd be marched over the cabinet and be requested to read it. The salient passage said: “Sir, I will treat you like a gentleman, not because you are one, but because I am one.”

 

Again, I would much prefer the mods or I not be forced to take any action and that all men of good will act like gentlemen.

 

I would like to think of you all as a gentleman who were able to rise to the occasion.

 

Actions will speak louder than words. This topic has run its course.
