I have never used so much profanity in my life (Jimmy'll do that to ya) (joke, i have to cover my ass now).
But something needs to be addressed. I don't like where this is going with all these forum rules...
Ok, Stan, you may or may not have noticed, firstname.lastname@example.org is not a real address (well not mine anyway), so this is one of the rare chances i'll ever have to voice some suggestions.
First off, the issue that I was concerned about from the beginning was about censorship and post deletion and where to draw the line (which I know is up for debate). But the key thing here is to remain consistent.
As i've said before, I haven't been around as much as I usually am, so I might have missed something, but from the posts that i've read (I'm not sure when the deleting started), it seemed to me that Panties was having his posts deleted for using offensive language. If i'm wrong then please correct me. (This is where i suggest that moderators announce post deletions and possibly giving a general reason such as spam, etc)
If there was something that truly deserved to be deleted without a doubt, then i have not read it. Who knows maybe Panties DID do something like leave a Rape Website link on a post. But if nobody knows why his posts are being deleted, then it might seem that he's being unfairly treated.
If i'm correct that it was about language or about attacking another member, then I would hope that you would reconsider deleting their posts.
Because it's not consistent with what goes on here on a weekly basis. This attitude is what makes this forum more attractive than Seinology and Seinfeldfan.net
I realize that this sort of thing can drive away the soft-skinned, but if Jimmy can dish it out, and Bookman can dish it out, and Gendison, and I can, why not Panties? Eventually, Panties will prove himself to be either a passionate, emotional Seinfeld fan (much like Jimmy) or just another fad we never hear from again. Either way, his posts should not be deleted for foul language.
I'll admit, that things got a bit out of hand, and it's embarassing to have you come and have to tell us to calm down. I just hope this forum doesn't fold under the pressure and become like every other forum where the regulars have nothing else to do but answer questions for people.
THIS NEXT PART IS FOR JIMMY (IF YOU CHOOSE TO READ IT):
(fact: you made the first attack. You started the profanity.)
I started out from the beginning addressing this censorship problem, and somehow it became a discussion about how I jump on a bandwagon to attack Jimmy, how i side with "board terrorists".
Let me make this clear, I DON'T SIDE WITH ANYBODY. I NEVER HAVE. I choose to have fun on this site whichever way pleases me. If Wibble has a good comeback, i'll acknowledge it, if somebody chooses the name Elaine's Panties, i'll chuckle. Heck, i even claimed to be Guero. The genius behind that one I was actually playing on my reputation here (which is totally unfounded) that i'm always siding with board terrorists. I started a thread begging Jackie and Gendison to take out the claws again. I didn't care about watching them go at it, I was having fun.
I've made jokes about you, i've made jokes about Wibble, i've made jokes about Ramon, you name it.
I've never made one enemy on this site, though. Because i've been able to remain tasteful in my remarks so that those who are reading it can tell that i'm joking. I've made numerous jabs at Ramon, and have taken them too. Ok, so I had a little tiff with Bookman a long time ago that lasted about an hour. Why would i have this personal vendetta against you? Everything i do on this site (except for this) is always to have fun. I figured I can make jabs at you because you knew that it wasn't an attack, but a joke (like the "what kind of idiot would give Jimmy any sort of power or authority).
If you were affended then i'm sorry, i'll have to work harder at making sure there is no confusion between an attack and a joke.
Meanwhile, you have numerous people posting entire threads trying to get you kicked off. Maybe it's because you use words like fuck, and cunt. (putting the * doesn't change a whole lot)
I will stop the personal attacks, i'm sorry it went so far.
However I will not stop having fun on this site, even if that involves deciding not to berate a newbie.
And the award for longest rant goes to.....Cousin Jeffrey for Two Rants and a Joke.
