    We get along just fine. That does not mean we have to agree on everything, as that would make for a boring experience.

    Not entirely true is it Hans? I have seen more and a couple of scathing posts aimed at Barry when others were piling on. That was unethical, unnecessary and only added fuel to the attack. People of authority do not discuss differences in public as that serves to diminish your status. When you are an authority figure one discusses their views in camera,not in public.

    And it is an attack by what standards? What constitutes "an attack"?

    Every medal has 2 sides, and I have seen some instances where I felt compelled to make some kind of public statement.
    It does have something to do with ethics, but not in the negative way you portray it.
    If people have a point they have a point, and I have no problem to admit in public they have a point.

    Now if you were wondering why it is so silent on here, it is simple: certain people are making a point. I think they are making their point rather well actually.

    When a review was asked for of a certain member's posts, Admin banned him permanently. AND his alter ego had to have his posts approved by a mod. So it was with no small satisfaction I put that alter ego on ignore when he began to send me nasty PM's.

    There are people who are not in the least concerned about attacks on others. "Not an issue" is the usual response. Of course, not an issue to them is the reality. And if it has become clear that the care and safety of others is not their concern, then it is easy to see where at least part of the fault lies.

    And that is just making a point!!

    Are you saying members were crying out for help in the name of "care and safety" from this web site? If so, I feel pity for those who take a BBS so serious. Their life must be in absolute turmoil in the day to day struggles of reality. I can't even imagine allowing this site or any other to have so much control over ones life that they would pursue admin to review their post. In my view, if this was the biggest problem I was facing, I would consider myself to be fortunate and blessed knowing I have the power to walk away at any time.

    Nope, wasn't saying that at all.

    If people asked for clarification before ranting, we'd have a lot less trouble.

    Wasn't trying to strike a nerve Barry. There's no need for you to be defensive. My point is people have a choice to be here or not. If it becomes stressful to the point that they need someone to be removed then it's a healthy choice to let go and leave the site.

    As for trouble.....it appears highly unlikely with only a few people posting.

    Since you are obviously talking to someone else, I'll leave this conversation.

    I know of quite a few who left due to the constant derision. There were yet others who left simply due to the constant turmoil and the hijacking of threads. Many came here to natter, visit, commiserate, or simply exchange banter. That, unfortunately, became impossible.

    An 18 year run is not bad, and this site has apparently outlasted most of the other Vianet BBS. So if those who only come to insult people are gone, I certainly have no problem with it.

    No problem with it doing what? Folding or starting over.

    Well, that is a rather bold statement to make Barry.

    Why is that? They were a very large part of the problem. Those of a milder nature or those not quite as adept with the English language were put upon in numbers. Beaten into submission until they gave up and left. I feel compelled to say RWGR was not guilty of the brow beating of those people, he and Barry were/are? at one another constantly to the exclusion of any and all threads prior to RW's forced sabbatical this time round.
