Re: Politics and Moderation

While catching up on today's posts, all I can say is nothing seems to have actually changed as a result of this thread.

Re: Politics and Moderation

In all seriousness (really???) I have to say (really???) that here on SN we seem to spend more time arguing about what needs to change on the site -- while on CF (where they have all sorts of rules and no OT / Pol section) they wind up arguing over OT / Pol and how to moderate it. So, it seems to me that our biggest problem is that we don't know how good we've got it!

Re: Politics and Moderation

Hey everybody, all joking aside, the point of this thread was not to change anything or get any cudos, though we definitely appreciate them. We just wanted to remind everyone that there may come times when we have to alter sigs or posts that are political in nature and we would appreciate your understanding.

That's all. Now, can we get back to making fun of TDW? That is much more enjoyable!!

Hi Brian, Hope you're well. We'll catch up next time.

Just got a visit from Bill Archer. He is doing great and has decided, as soon as the remainder of his doctors sign off, to go sailing.
Jen sends her best.

Happy sailing,
Steve

Are you saying you don't have a poor rep?
I don't understand the answer.

I don't understand your point.

BTW, there was a member here named ParadiseParrot. He ended up pissing off half the members here, not to mention one of the moderators, before finally being shown his way to the door. Funny that. Just curious, before I pull IP addresses, if you might have been around during that time? We still have his IP address, incidentally. Not a cousin of yours, is he? Your name brings suspicion... but hey, the world is filled with parrots! They are everywhere. Some are fun to watch and listen to, while others like to take a high limb and crap on others when they walk by. Just hope you two don't happen to be talking from the same branch. Because if you did happen to remember seeing him when you looked in that mirror in your cage, yet you did enjoy hanging around Sailnet, I would consider the unfortunate reality that not all Parrots learn to talk. Some just hang around on their perch, watch you quietly behind the bars, and observe the world around them in utter silence. In that way, they are often ignored, and ignorance is bliss. But when they start talking, they gain attention. When they gain attention, well, so does my IP checker and subsequent ban and IP blocking from an ISP should they be the same person or in the same general neighborhood.

Ponder that metaphor for a while in silence, please, ParadiseParrot.
