I know, I know...two wrongs don't make a right...

Thanks for the input.
My D-Ego is back on board.

You know it's because of your official stance and sensitivity that made this an important find in my D-life.

You can go nearly anywhere on the web and get lectured, hounded, pitched, proselytized, otherwise folded - spindled - and mutilated. But here I have a chance that at least someone will hear my words, respond, and give me a sense that I'm not an abnormal moron with psychotic delusions for asking questions they don't want to hear. I hope you maintain this atmosphere and shun the people who define themselves by how many arguments they quash.

(By the way, if anyone says I am a delusional psychotic yada yada - it's all untrue, I swear it!
)

Because it needs to be bumped.
I'm noticing a lot of sniping and tit for tat today.

I get it - but I find it interesting that people can say the most hateful sarcastic, disrespectful crap to others but as long as they don't use any popular epithets its all groovy -
whatever - but I will abide...

This forum, not this particular thread, is for you to ask any question involving ATS BTS MATS. If you have a problem with the site for what ever reason you post it to a thread similar to your problem. If you cannot find one you start a new thread with your question.

I was just flagged for manners and decorum for rather humorously pointing out that the op was off his rocker(not of this post but another).Now I have no problem being polite,what I need to know is where do you (the mods) draw the line it seems very arbitrary when I read replies like this


So your answer to the problems we face is to let the government control us? Then it would appear that you are the uneducated retard living in a trailer park.
I pulled that off an old thread in about 2 seconds please tell me my post was not as insulting as that.Again I'm not trying to justify what I wrote,I'm just trying to get an Idea of where the line is drawn.obviously it is up to the discretion of the moderator supervising the thread but is there any uniform criteria for them?

Moderators are unable to read every single post, unfortunately. That is why there is an alert/complaint button so when a member sees something as you quoted, it can be brought to the attention of staff and taken care of.

so some one didn't like my reply and reported me?That's how it works?I have questions then, once reported is it "judged" or just acted upon. and where do I report any one who thinks I"m stupid or wrong and can I plead my case to any one besides the mod that flagged me?

You can file a COMPLAINT which all MODs will see.

www.abovetopsecret.com... the link is for page one the post is on page six by alien mind I believe.........................here is another from the next post


With right wing freaks you still have a choice where to live. If we let left wing nuts like yourself run free - we all would have to live in a giant concentration camp. Toilet paper rationing, anyone?
calling some one nuts is that off limits?

I have read and understand but you must also understand that everything has a context and I wasn't using that as an example of "well they said this so why can't I say that" I was using it as an example of the arbitrary nature of having more than one person subjectively interpreting the rules. Thanks

I have had some issues on ATS/BTS with members who have stalked and harassed me in an attempt to shut me up and not share my views and opinions. I really wish that such members who continually violate the TOS would be banned.

On a recent thread a moderator posted a link to this thread on a clearly discourteous post. However given that the discourteous post in question was allowed to remain and the poster was allowed to continue the posting of prima facie violations of the 'don't be a jerk' ATS terms and conditions stipulation on that same thread, I have concluded that the title to this thread should be 'Courtesy is Strongly Encouraged but Not Required.'
