As a new member, I'd like to know where this forum stands on the whole topic of the dual sock-puppet issue?
Yes, you want civility and decorum, and I understand that, but in some cases it is much more hurtful to a member - to realize that some members have
organised themselves so surreptitiously as to lead the unsuspecting, uninitiated, and/or unwary on a discussion thread above their head in their
dealings with them, and in so-doing have really taken the aim of any forum beyond the purposes of its existence, or made a mockery of true civility
That is to say; the respect of the person you are discussing things with, alongside the impression you have of them in the way you are handling
IE: There's no point for me to be one way with a member and than when brought to attention, pretend like I didn't know what was occuring in respect
of the manner I brought to the thread with this said individual, if such a thing did occur. IE: If I started with a serious and true tone, I must
continue with it, must I not? I cannot just pretend this other person was the puppet and I was the sock, when I changed my tone from one of respect to
one of a kind of joking contrivance?
True respect?: Does it exist on this forum in members' dealings whith each other, or are the ham-fisted civility and decorum protocols made so loud
so far, just a way to make members kneel before administration?
Your opinion, off-topic, is most appreciated. Think of it (this) coming from a (master) Troll-King. By posing this issue, from the outset, makes this:
me rendering the sock useless and insignificant, I guess. Anyway, your thoughts, please.
