[QUOTE=Dee;2724292]I issued one warning during the time that the political forum was active. I’m not a person to hold a grudge, as anyone who really knows me will confirm. With that in mind, I’d like to state here in open forum that as far as I am concerned, the slate is wiped clean, and that warning is trashed. [/QUOTE]
I had to think about addressing this but since I’m fairly certain this is to me I thought I would.
Since there was no violation of forum rules ( even less chance of that in the former political sub-forum).There would have no reason to have or hold a grudge.
Further there was no flaming or anything close posted.
I think this is correct but I didn’t go back & check every post I’ve ever made on the forum. If admin or staff or any member wants to put in the effort to correct me on what I post below : Go for it.
I have never called a member stupid or ignorant directly. I may have been thinking that & it came out in the context of a post.That’s not exactly the same. Since I rarely use profanity in real life I rarely use it on the forum . I may have at some time if it was in the spirit of what was being posted by various members in a thread.
I do remember one ocassion where I made a comeback that a member had a bad reaction to. That wasn’t my intention & I appoligized within the next couple of posts. That apology wasn’t accepted & the thread decended into flaming.
That being said. I know I sometimes push the forum rules to the limit & past. That will still happen occassionally.
If I feel I’m right about something I will strongly defend my position.That at times will be considered excessive .
What I will do when doing that is remain civil & not decend into name calling. I may even tell a member with an opposing opinion they are wrong .
I also remember answering a technical question one time where the OP used a string of explatives toward me that would make a crow blush . Rather than engaging in a flamewar I reported it. I still have no idea why this was the OP’s response.
