  •  My original comment took care of that (0+ / 0-)

    But if you're worried more about automated data mining ops going on here by outside entities that might not see such context readily and draw the wrong conclusions, then that's a different matter. Is that what you're worried about?

    •  Yes about mining But I still think you... (0+ / 0-)

      ... underestimate how often comments are viewed outside their context. A certain amount of self-containment of the whole concept you're trying to get across is necessary, imo, when you make a remark like  you did that I first responded to.

      Don't tell me what you believe, show me what you do and I will tell you what you believe.

        I'm still not entirely sure I agree about the need to explain context under normal pre-GWOT circumstances, but given that you affirmed that mining is a concern, then that changes things.

        How serious is the mining issue, btw (realizing that by asking about it, I'm therefore fueling it, but then that's always a major motivation for mining, be it manual or automated, to get people to self-censor, isn't it)? Is this something of real concern to K & Co.? Am I a fool to be asking such questions?

        Incidentally, am I ever likely to get back my ratings privileges, and if so how do I go about it? Or is this permanent? It sucks not to be able to rec comments I like and I imagine that people who don't know that I'm NR think that I'm rude to not do so. (And is this part of the "punishment"?)
