    and the fact that some Kossacks tipped one while HRing the other, formed the opening skirmish in the entire recent round of meta which culminated in the new TTFN rule.

    Thin ice.

      It was "dear leader"

    •  That is the kind of thing that should not be HR (2+ / 0-)

      worthy. We've got a lot of cowboys out there ever anxious to throw pastry, and that is a major part of the problem. When did any political figure become sacrosanct?

        who knew? :>

        He gets regularly pasted with *snarky remarks about his BigFoot™moderating skills and his *making money off of page views for [your most hated diatribe here].

        Never seen him kick a user for that altho I think I remember he did respond recently to someone's crabby remark, but as another member rather than some MetaBoss. Props fer that.

        *(Guilty of snarky remarks about both)

        slightly. She's right; the "offending" phrase was "dear leader," not "fearless leader." I'm not sure how much that changes things, but I don't want to start false rumors. It probably doesn't have quite the same connotations.

          more than once myself and will again. When people begin treating some leader as above criticism, then referring to them as dear leader is perfectly appropriate.

      why I oughtta...

      actually I missed the 'fearless leader' part of that and I thought I was paying attention.
        Any opening skirmish happened years ago afaik, this was not a new event.
        But one of the parties at least is not here to explain.
