Confused malcontents swilling Chardonnay while awaiting the Zombie Apocalypse.
There is nothing necessarily democratic about a poll. As such it may have validity if the terms are clear to a valid sample of a given population.
As such, your poll does not meet this criteria. So the results eitherway are not valid as its use by you to act as censor. What you are doing is attempting to ban
free speech, based on the fact that you <<CHOOSE>> to feel insulted by what is in effect a response to negative posts, from yourself. in fact far more negative
and insulting. If this was the real world where you were a judge, you would have to recuse yourself because you are setting yourself up as a judge, prosecutor, and plaintif.
Actually, I am doing what you asked.
You said other people being annoyed was a figment of my imagination.
As it is impossible for me to vote twice in one poll, this will prove either you correct, or me.
And censorship happens all throughout Delphi.
The default settings of this forum prohibit certain words, because it is commonly considered that they are offensive to people.
I simply wish to add your Macro to the list of filtered words.
You are simply a name, the others without names are imaginary.
Your problem is not my macro it is the fact that the majority of your posts to me are invalid and I am calling you on it.,
To justify "G=G+1" to be filtered, you have to respond to one "G" to prove why it is an inappropriate response.
Still waiting for you to do so - try "euphenism" used as an example of its opposite.
I agree that macroer is very aggravating, self-important, arrogant and "smirky". However, my personal opinion is that it's not right to ban someone from the forum simply for being a jerk. If you did that, you'd lose at least 2 more members (maybe me included).
By the same standard, her arrogance in her responses, would get her banned by the same criteria.
Examples: the Word "euphenism" suggests a nicer way of saying something not so nice, but when I commented that to put a thing in a worse light, she only responded by saying, incorrectly, that my example included a Word that was not a Word. When I explained the difference between unique and uniquely (which she objected to as invalid), she ignored my response, and returned with an off topic response. In both cases this is not only rude but negative. I only use the "G" response after I have already complained politely but am ignored as she repeats the same error. This is not an example of arrogance or self-importance, it is merely the way a childish person should be treated, when they repeat an offence after having having its inappropriateness explained to them.
As an example, have I ever sent a "macroer" to you? If so what was it in response to?
Hahahaha, Gossamer man, you just cant help yourself, can you?
Are you sure you're not really Grainne's husband?
>>As a result, instead of my usual "G" response to trolls such as Zarknorph, Squaddy, U2, Medley, et all.<<
Have you fired you secretariat? Did Delphi TOS come a knocking? Enquiring minds need to know!
>> et all. <<
I must ask again, teach.......did ANY of your high school students actually graduate??????
Stephanie, it's funny to see you take up arms with the auld curmudgeon, RGoss.
YOU do realize, that in his prior incarnations, Rgoss used the following nicks: Gaelicnight1 and 2, Thruso21 and Upandaway2, plus a plethora of other short lived nicks. His first cousin is the notorious troll who used infest many a fora under the guise of KaitlynMCH. You must remember those nicks, right?
No surprises then that you would seek solace in his arms!
You, the Gosserman and Ha'ld, three peas in a putrid pod!
Then it is a well earned and deserved filthy "smear," isn't it, dingbat!
Nope, you haven't. However, while I find some of your posts, especially those of historical content, interesting, for me there is no room for reply or debate in any of your other arguments. Knowing in advance that when you disagree with a response you first "correct" the poster, then shut down the conversation if you don't like the answer to your "correction", I simply don't reply.
Edited to add: What this all boils down to is, I find your long-winded explanations of why you are right and everyone else is wrong "aggravating, self-important, arrogant and "smirky". That is simply my opinion, you are not required to agree.
There is nothing necessarily democratic about a poll.
Democracy is so important and wonderful. Pirate ships operated almost the purest form of it - all hang together or all hang apart.
Why, individuals such as BM can only be protected by democracy.
Otherwise might have to meet me in real debate and be properly exposed as woolly-headed.
(Sorry BM, I think I let myself run away describing you thus).
