Have something to say about itself?

Dean, you couldn't care less about the forum rules on any given day. You have made this quite apparent in the past. The fact is that you have some kind of personal beef with me apparently. It doesn't matter whether I would have consulted with other staff or not. This has been made apparent in the past already as you have specifically mocked me for consulting with others instead of making the decision of my own accord. Either way, you are trying to bully your way threw things. I find it hard to believe that "now" all of a sudden you are clinging to the forum rules that you keep showing such disregard for.

As for my actions, I had just cause to take them. As far as I am concerned, I could have been harder on those involved and it would have still been reasonable. With all the trash talk and bickering the thread probably just should have been locked. There are several more severe actions I could have too rather than just obfuscating a link for a time.

From what you are saying if someone were to of posted child porn instead but I could not have seen it, I should have just left it. That is asinine.

So big deal, the link was obfuscated for a few hours while things were checked out. Anyone who really wanted to view it could (assuming they had the capability). With all this fuss one would think I deleted someones account for no reason at all. Get real and grow up.

Not that I claim to be an excrement expert, but it does look a little feline to me .. :lol:

and speaking of excrement, I think it's about to hit the fan in this thread. :(

They have been? I'm not aware of anything like that. Can you elaborate, please?

Follow-up: after a quick check in the logs, I see that three users appear to have removed their own posts from the thread. Since there has been some anger about moderator edits more generally, I want to make clear that I don't think any mod or admin has edited this thread in any way. I may be wrong about that, but it's what I can see in the logs.

Just for what it's worth, I would hope that we could give each other the benefit of the doubt and not assume the worst (nor jump to conspiratorial, worst-case conclusions). So far as I know, it has always been the case that except for moving outright spam or in the case of very extreme pornography, racism or hate, edited or locked posts are marked as such. I don't believe any of the mods does this sort of thing secretly or on the sly.

You can see why i quote this?

I did remove my last post, cause in this section not much is going on. I don't want nadir to be there, at top of this section, for a long time. I am tired of him. That was all. In case no one will post after this one i will remove this post too
(assuming no one will make it non-editable)
