so im gonna toss my 2 pennys in now because i think you may have gone a little to far with this post .i think this scroll i got across the bottom of
my page describes it better
not "many " but a "few"
i have been browsing 9/11 for many years and it seems to me there are maybe 20-30 posters on the forum that are truly regulars be they on the OS or
truther side of the coin.
the problem is that when a new person comes here wanting to learn they are often confronted by one or more of these posters and baited with cries of
"ignorance" or "deny ignorance" and these are baits.
is calling someone "ignorant" or told to "deny ignorance" (implying a poster is ignorant) any better or worse then cries of "shill" or "OSer" or
i wanted to supply some examples but unfortunately i cant because of this thread.
so... you say
This forum has turned into an inordinate strain on our staff, and that strain stops now.
but then we are asked to use the alert button at ,what seems like, the slightest insinuation of off topic and (lesser) name calling. so that every
mention of "shill" (as an example you can insert ignorant here too) needs to be alerted .
i think you are making this hard on yourself . let the people scream shill or ignorant as long as no
abusive, libelous, defamatory, hateful, intolerant, bigoted and/or racist
comments are made and people dont
harass, threaten, nor attack anyone.
then just let it go. you need to relax these definitions not make them more strict
like "shilling" someone is that really " abusive, libelous, defamatory, hateful, intolerant, bigoted and/or racist "?
i dont think so and i dont think calling someone ignorant falls into that category either
nor do i think it is harassment, threatening, or attacking
now i do think there is a lot of
15h.) Spamming: You will not Post identical content, or snippets of identical content, to multiple threads
like when certain posters only post from certain sites and repost these same points time and time again.
where am i going with this?
and im tired maybe ill make more sense tomorrow.
P.S i think if you were to implement so kind of feature like this
so that people
wouldnt have to wade through pages and pages of bickering to find an answer or a reply to a certain post they are interested in it might cut down on
