So you think that its ok for you to imply that members are breaking the rules, forging accounts, engaging in conspiracies, but its not okay when one
of the people you are yourself abusing retorts that you are posting utter nonesense???
but, your own admin and its family (Val being the wife of the boards finance admin) violate posted rules (use others accounts, curse)
Val only noted that you were wrong. Her son broke the rules and got spanked for it.
If you don't want to have run ins with members, don't post about members. If you don't like the political process, don't get invovled in it.
Just stick to the topical forums, thats what brought you, and everyone else here anway. I can assure you, Val doesn't get special treatment just
because her husband bothers to do work for the board. She gets warned and disciplined when she makes mistakes like everyone else. Heck, she
from being elected
a council person strictly because
she was concerned that there'd be an appearance of nepotism, and
yet you charge her with just that??
What exactly do you think she is able to get done by all of this 'plotting' anyway? Change the
background colours? Have different fonts on the board? She certainly isn't going to be able to 'silence' anyone that disagrees with her. Hell, I
don't think I've agreed with her on almost anything. Lots of peopel disagree with her, they don't get kicked for it, or punished at all.
I mean, honestly, don't complain when she notes that you make no sense when you suggest somethign that, well, makes no sense. And the only person
that was abusive, and I can personally understand it since you were giving his mom
a hard time, received a warning and reprimands for it
No one is interfereing with your posting or silencing your views. Assuming its going to happen, making a stink about it, rallying people against
other board members, that
is the sort of thing, the sort of drama, that brings problems.
DeltaNine banned- boy that's something.
Thats the perfect case. He used to contribute to the board. Some stuff some peopel agreed with, other stuff other people didn. IOW, he was a good
contributing member. But then he just stopped carring or being interested, and starting posting all sorts of whacky politicizing drama-running b/s,
and in addtion to that started receiving warnings for his behaviour. He was given many a chance to reform, and agreed to, but constantly revereted
back to warn worthy behaviour and not being a good contributor. Ultimately it caught up with him and he got banned.
This is a discussion board. About the weird and paranormal and conspiracy and terrorism. Focus on that. Contribute to that, not to board drama.
And, honestly, I'm not trying to single you out, everyone
should be working to make this board great. And what makes it great? Content and
intelligent discussion. Joking around makes it fun, the characters make it interesting, but ATS is
great because of the content. You, and
every poster, have a unique view on things, and a different understanding on the topics that the board is about. Go out and tell us what that view is,
demonstrate it to everyone, bring in good content, like everyone is obviusly capable of, like Delta Nine once
