    Stop the ad hom attacks (i.e. "deluded"). Stick to substance.

    •  yeah, thanks mom. (0+ / 0-)

      I'm going to express my thoughts and opinions as I see them. Deluded is part of the substance.

      I can handle the responses to my comments. Thanks for "stepping in and looking out" but I think NYFM and Tirge Caps can handle themselves just fine without you parenting the conversation.

        That's part of that whole self-moderation thing you seem to have forgotten about but some of us haven't. Keep it up and the HRs will come.

        •  I am not afraid of your HRs nor do I agree (0+ / 0-)

          with your boundaries of acceptable conversation.

          I have my own. Calling someone's opinion deluded is fine. OK?

          NYFM telling me I don't know what the hell I am talking about is fine. OK?

          You, stepping in here like a babysitter is not fine. Save your policing for the real abuse.

          This is just people disagreeing. Because your sensitivities are so bare does not mean the rest of us have to change.

          You deal with the world; the world does not deal with you.

            It's a safe place from "the world". And it's not your place to decide by yourself what is and isn't acceptable behavior here. It's the community's.

            And guess what? I'm a part of it. And the community standard here is that calling someone "deluded" or a "hater" is unacceptable and HRable ad hom.

            Of course, site rules also prevent me from HRing either of you now, so I won't.

            •  It's a saying. I'm not claiming this place (0+ / 0-)

              is the world.

              re:

              Did I say it was my place? Any more than it is yours?

              Relax.

                •  So we all gotta act by your standards? (0+ / 0-)

                  I am not free to disagree with you on those standards?

                  Let's get something straight, kovie: You're the one telling people how to act.

                  I am not. I am not telling anyone how to act. That's what "our" is about. It's putting up with things YOU may not agree with.

                  Save your policing for the nasty. Lord knows there's plenty here.

                    prohibit attacking someone personally in these ways. It's not my standards, but community and admin standards. You can disagree with them all you like but they're still the standards on this site and we are all tasked with enforcing them, via comments, reporting and HR's. I have only done the first and don't intend to do anything more.
