  •  Sorry, I didn't intend it to be on your post (0+ / 0-)

    My post was intended as a general observation that looking for ideological purity in a forum for open discussion is a dangerous path. Much as you more eloquently just said. But, I had skimmed Candide's more recent posts and saw no other HR's as well as pretty standard commenting on his part.  Further, the argument in the thread moved from "hey my conspiracy is valid" to "oh, yeah?  your declarations of fact are no more supported than mine, so there"  Not value added, but still, not so-called "CT", just pointless.  I basically saw no reason in his post and response for a banning, even if the HR is more reasonable as an individuals caution statement, I wouldn't have gone there.

    The line item that bugged me was actually "anastasia p" when she titled a post in the other thread  "You were warned above".  Very much a statement of presumed authority and one that would have certainly rankled me no matter the reasonableness of her post.

    •  Yeah, some people could work on tone. (0+ / 0-)

      I won't comment on that user because I wasn't in that diary contemporaneously and things often feel different in the light of a new day. Monday morning quarterbacking is a dangerous sport that earns one few friends in life.

      I will just say that I've noticed that there are a few people who seem to think this place is their little fiefdom. I suppose it's unavoidable because that's what happens in real life too. But I figure my job as a longtime community member is only to make sure that others are treated with minimal decency here. Other rule infractions, Markos and his very capable staff can and do handle.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
