Firstly i congratulate you on your new sharpened fangs, at the moment their appears to be a full set of them all white and gleaming.
I do however take issue with an incident i had with a mod giving me a warning for saying exactly the same thing as you have boss, in a 9/11 thread a
few days ago.
A number of people wer becoming more vexed and angered as the thread progressed, i made a first post saying to those who were becoming more wound up
that all they need do is to stop responding to those people who were they felt "baiting" them, i implied the best thing they could do was deny them
the platform they required by putting them on ignore.
I also postulated as to wether some people suffer from a sense of morbid curiosity and couldn't live without knowing what the next insult/put down
I returned to the thread some time later to see that the baiting had continued and stated that there were a number of people in the the thread that i
had put on my "Kill List".
For this i was warned and fined.
SO it appears its okay for you to use the word "Kill" when couched within the frame of referance of quieting someone, but not for me even though i
had previously couched the frame of referance "KIll" by advising people to put others on ignore and to silence them.
So why, pray tell is it okay for you to use a term, and not for me, i dont believe i was being in any way devisive or inflamatory in my posts, in
light of your opening post i would please ask you to look at the posts i made and adjudge wether or not the fine you imposed upon me of removing ATS
points was fair.
Or does the problem go deeper due to some political leanings within the ATS leadership whom actually get the casting vote on wether or not someone is
trolling based on current political views, and possible objectives that remain unsaid but nonetheless may exist with regards to some topics of great
You say you are impartial but that remains to be seen as day by day you must maintain that impartiality.
Out and out trolling is plainly visible for what it is but some well meaning people who dearly hold some views will invariably be called trolls, when
all they are doing is defending either poorly or doggedly those views.
This is what you get when you google kill list
