I think we all know the difference between trolling and friendly banter.
Agreed, which is why I thought it was simply an excuse to drive me away from the forum. It worked.
Yeah, some places are cliquey like that. If you don't fall into line, then you are on the shit list.
That would be like ignoring God. You can't do that! Better yet would be for staph to ignore me.
That one was very cliquey. It didn't help that I had a short (3 month) physical relationship with one of the clique's princesses. She turned out to be batshit crazy and it ended. My continued presence on the forum ended shortly thereafter.
Another forum had a tight clique and anyone who disagreed with them was driven away with the same tactic; temp-bans for minor offenses which were overlooked for clique-members. I left that one too. Ten years ago, political forums were few, now they are all over the place. Too common to have to put up with bullshit. I fail to see why someone who is constantly banned from a forum keeps coming back when there are so many opportunities elsewhere.
Appreciate that. If we figure out how to grant access to the records without full moderation status -- that person would be an independent "ombudsman" reporting on the type of work that was done. But it's "still in committee".
If you want to avoid staph -- I'd suggest more attention to hygiene and your environment. Just sayin'.
If you want a moderation-free existence -- just follow the simple rules. We'll never know you're even there !
One day working at the prison I was outside on gate control. A group of bigwigs were touring the housing units with the warden. As they walked up to the door at one unit, I guess the person inside at the monitor was busy and didn't see them out there. The warden looked at me and raised her hand to her ear so I would call them on the radio. So I said on the radio, "Gate control to D block, you've got a staph infection at your front door!" When they came out as they passed me, she flipped me off!
Understood. No worries. Hash it out amongst yourselves and let me know yea or nay.
Because we're more studly than you
