The Privates always criticize the Generals .
I had a post removed for violating forum policy (which it didn't. I was discussing life), but they don't give you any information so you don't make the same mistake twice.
Lately it's been really a messed up situation.
When you allow a human some degree of control over others, based on ambiguous rules they are free to interpret however they choose, with no oversight — how could it NOT cause problems?
Sorry for the brief post-I was at work.
See, I think of you as one of the fixtures around here so I assumed you remembered. My impression of Chet was that he thrived on attention. You've met those people that seem to gravitate toward drama. Chet's piece de resistance was when he asked the moderators to ban him.
It was a moment. No big deal.
It's always been like that.
Get mad, get over it optionally. Leave, leave and come back. Don't leave and forget about it...
I can say I have done all these things in 15 years here, yet here I am.
I read that thread and linked article and enjoyed them both, but I was surprised the thread lasted as long as it did. It was inherently political. I like that sort of thing and would be happy to see more of it, but it was doomed from the start.
This is the Central Scrutinizer...
"We should do this again sometime"
"Your dog is now living on a farm that looks like this Thomas Kinkade painting"
Yea, the key is to remember this is a social forum. That's it. It really doesn't matter, there's no official policy or decisional importance to anything shared here. This is all recreational, and doesn't matter. Some folks get too serious and carried away, as if this is the battleground for survival, lol. Its just a friendly guitar forum whats not important. Even if a thread gets deleted. Deleted threads don't delete the truth. Just dodge the over-serious threads, or try to help reign folks in to a friendly discourse.
Bill pulls it off ok
I don't know what to say except that I will read the regulations again.
In the meantime I'm shutting up as I don't want to offend anyone.
I’m only offended by cargo shrots…and bumched shrits.
@blowtorch - touche Whether or not I'd want to moderate this forum... good question... been there done that, albeit in a lot smaller scale. Whether or not I'd want to do it here, yeah, don't know. I have no idea on the daily number of postings.
My apology - I generally try to be a lot more careful in how I express myself. Yes, you are right, it does indeed touch politics - can't really avoid it ref subject. Instead of laconic "no politics" I should've written "The article wasn't political".
My point was to initiate a discussion about how our experience of time is changing and has changed, and how that might affect the future generations. The article does mention a dilemma of a fictitious politician "Clarissa" and brings up a few examples how different governments are specifically incorporating long-term thinking into policy-making, but that's just one, relatively minor, part of it. IMO if one thinks that little part turns the whole article political, one has a leetle bit narrow point of view.
From what @Manual Slim says I gather that someone apparently did pick up just that and run with it, and others apparently followed. Maybe we should have a little addition to the ground rules listed at the bottom of the page... Don't Feed The Troll.
The only reason he pulls it off though, is the matching footwear. It's this care and attention he's given that makes the whole ensemble...
There lies a picture of a man who cares not what others think but is cunning enough to still draw attention to himself, a well fed ego imho..
I don't know, baiting trolls often results in them exposing themselves as trolls. At which point, they realize they are outed and leave, and folks loose interest and ignore the thread. Thread ignoring is a gentleman's alternative to deletion btw.
Cargo shrots . . . check (extra points for camo pattern)
Bumched shrit . . . check
Socks with sandals . . . check
Seems Bill Murray is the archetypal TDPRI poster. Who knew? Is he somewhat of a bodybuilder?
