Whine And Geez
Hmm, looking through the responses, I'm hoping nobody will think it's inappropriate to voice dissent when it comes to all this. I know it's easy to
get the idea that different points of view aren't welcome when it comes to administrative decisions.
But the truth is much different. We are all bound to honor the T&C
, but while
we are all required to honor them, that doesn't mean we can't disagree when we think the management has made a bad call.
In this case, my only personal objection is the use of the term "Novice" to refer to members who are clearly anything but
novices when it
comes to ATS. But I'm confident that will get settled in time.
Other members have other issues to air, and it's all good.
The deadliest weapon is patience.
Polite disagreement is sacred and protected by the terms & conditions
you're disagreeing with a site owner, for example, but doing so while honoring the
, us mods have no basis for interference.
When personal attacks or other forms of insult come into the picture, however, all bets are off. But again I digress.
I'm seeing some well-expressed dissent in this thread. If you disagree and are willing to express your disagreement in a polite manner, you're in
the right thread.
