  •  It seems you are putting words in Zopvihbob's... (16+ / 0-)

    mouth.  If you are going to HR someone and claim it is for something they said, at least correctly quote them.

    Here is what was said,

    Me thinks the bank he works at should be boycotted until they throw the asshat out the top floor.
    Here is what you said he said:
    HR'd for advocating violence - murder, in fact. This guy is despicable, deserves to lose his job, and possibly be prosecuted and have a vacation at the Crobar Hotel, but - thrown out the window?
    Two words in your comment that do not appear in the first one are "Murder" and "Window".  Now, if I said that someone should be thrown out of the penthouse, does that mean I want them murdered by physically throwing them out a window or does it mean I want them removed from the property which would be a fine desire by anyone's standards?  Could be either but you cannot just assume I mean the worse of the two and then condemn me for it.

    I am uprating Zopvihbob's comment and I would strongly suggest you reconsider your HR.  It is a priviledge to be a trusted user.  Do not abuse that priviledge.

    •  Total agreement. The quote did not advocate (3+ / 0-)

      violence unless that's what you were look for. I commented the exact same thing.

      The key word in zopvihbob's comment is "out". Neither you nor I know whether that means out of an office, or out of a window. A clarification from the commenter would make me change my mind, but s/he hasn't seen fit to provide one.

      Uprate away, but please don't lecture me on the privilege of being a trusted user. I've been here almost 10 years, and I'll put my HR record up against anybody else's on the site.

      •  Longevity does not make one right... (0+ / 0-)
        Neither you nor I know whether that means out of an office, or out of a window.
        HRs are for blatant violations like actual calls for violence.  You admit that you do not know what s/he meant by that and yet you make an assumption, lay down the hammer and then expect the person you hit with it to come back and clarify whether they meant the most extreme interpretation or not.

        We are a community and we are all fighting for the same things; progressive ideals, fairness in our justice system, protecting those who need a hand up...  We are on the same team.  

        Please try to give the people who are here, fighting for the same causes you are, the benefit of the doubt.

        •  I am not claiming mere longevity. (1+ / 0-)

          I am claiming a very, very good - and long - record w/r/t HRs.

          If the commenter clarifies in favor of your interpretation, I will happily remove the HR.
