I guess that's all understandable then... If I had taken the line of thought "What is/was it like in the eyes of the staff members?" I would probably have thought out whatever I was planning to post here better...

However, I have seen a bit of a double standard with moderators being able to bend the rules... For example I'll quote El Sitherino:

I've always found it ironic that using "adult" language shows a lack of maturity.

Explain to me how there is a double standard? I haven't remove any language from peoples posts, nor has anyone enstated that curse words are off bounds. There's a censor for a reason, as well people are allowed to enter in personality into a post as long as there is point and reason to their post. If you disagree with my personality then tell me so, I'll refrain from making referencial humor and jokes in general.

That's cool, I've always found it ironic that people have a hard time differentiating between serious topics and serious posting. You can discuss a serious topic without having a serious attitude. Sometimes taking life less serious is a good thing.

I also enjoy that you simply quote my reference and don't quote my post which was well worded and detailed that if there is an issue with a deleted post there are places to take that, and there is a place to read where and why things may be done (the rules thread). Before attempting to demonize me, perhaps it would serve you to understand what type of person I am. I attempt to make the effort to know what type of person you are and I attempt to show you respect by providing you with the information you seek, how about showing me the same respect.

After all respect is a two-part system, it's like a dance, both parties need to show respect in order for a respectful discourse to take place. Here we treat eachother as civilized people capable of rational and logical thought. To say that someone must first show that is dysfunctional and incorrect, as well it goes against the very purpose of this place. Everyone that enters Kavar's is understanding that this is not Ahto, that's why serious topics have been transfered to their own dedicated forum, just like the Senate's creation so long ago.

So the staff is relieved there is no discussion in a discussion forum? I guess that is one way to prevent disagreements.

Please don’t stop. I may not agree with you all the time, but I do enjoy how you keep things from getting too serious.

I love you guys.


In a totally non-gay way. But if I were to, it'd be colorful and filled with disco-globes. ABBA would not be played, but experienced. As well, Meryl Streep will be kept 20 feet away at all times, except when we bring up Death Becomes Her.

Must be missing the actual irony part.

But yes I do agree that respect should be a two way street, however since you cannot control the other(well technically you can since you are a mod, but still....) the best option is to treat the other with respect first, until they show that they do not deserve the respect. Or more to the topic, just be nice. You don't have to respect someone to be nice.

No, I just have a hard time not commenting on something. I like to poke around at standards. The way I see it, this section is basically for posting facts. Either your facts counter someones ideal or they don't, either way you should never have ill intent with your post. That's just my personal philosophy and I never try to take this place seriously. I prefer imagining that I'm just goofing around with some friends, hoping at the end everyone will be okay talking with one another peacefully with no irritation. Any judgement or anything taking place in a post, takes place in that post.

Any words I changed, would be because when working as PE technician, and teaching young people, they are words which would have brought disciplinary procedures against me had I used them. As such, that is why I didn't consider them appropriate for a PG-13 procedure. I hope that clears that up

There is a slight difference between language being starred out, and that on display - though it depends on many different variations, context used, discussion etc. Some of my favourite comedy shows have lots of swearing in, but I can't post them in forum.

That's not what I mean and you know it

I do think discussion such as this are helpful, as I think it helps us all understand where we are coming from, and hopefully to lessen 'incidents' in the future. Thanks for the discussion y'all.

Reminder to everyone since the flaming has been getting out of hand lately--keep it toned down. If you want to say something nasty, fine, just don't hit the 'post reply' button when you do so.
