In fact I am suprised that I didnt get banned over the way I treated that ******** redneck A Theist.

I dont do that out of principle. The most idiotic members of this forum have resort to critizising me for my spelling. As a result, I do not check anything I post before I post it.
Other than that, I like to say what I think whilest I stilll think it without thinking over what I think.

Yeah I have done that when I notice that I have gone to far.

No, you took my suggestion as a multiple choice instead of the three-step programme I intended it to be. In other words, it was a method for venting in text without needing to go as far as actually submitting it for public appraisal.
At the age of five, Skagra decided emphatically that God did not exist.  This revelation tends to make most people in the universe who have it react in one of two ways - with relief or with despair.  Only Skagra responded to it by thinking, 'Wait a second.  That means there's a situation vacant.'

I find it hard to believe that you or anyone else follows a step program whilest writng replies.

Oh well, I can't help what you find hard to believe. I offered the suggestion in the spirit of trying to help in a practical way; do with it as you please.

Have fun.

Self censorship is tyranny! Down with forethought! Hell no, keep the typo!

A conscious plan of pre-screening/editing posts actually is a good idea for idiots like me. That others do similar is not too surprising. (Not calling anyone else an idiot...honest. Well, maybe...)

I definitely go through self-editing steps when I post... but I've been on the forum over a year, with only 700-odd posts. I find myself typing replies all the time, and then deleting them before posting. Mostly because it usually sounds better in my head than typed out.

As far as the ignore function, I don't use it. Not because I have no one I'd rather ignore, but it just never occurs to me. I do see the mods' point as to why you can't put them on ignore.

Germans, you are a little hot-headed, but that's partially why I like you Smile

Is it possible for the developers here to develop administrator messages that can be sent by any admin or mod while still permitting said staff member to be on ignore? Not like it matters to me because I do not ignore people, but being relevant to the thread, I wonder if this suggestion is feasible at all? And if You so desired, You could attach the sender's (staff) name to the administrator message so You would know who sent it regardless of ignore status.

Completely off-topic and out of nothing but pure interest, Void, is that an Auton from classic (i.e. proper) Doctor Who in your avatar?

My ass.

The creator of an institution who has assigned a rule book of equality has absolutly no power of determining the way people have to be treated in this institution.

The reason why I left this forum for 2 months was because I suspected that he had the power to do whatever he wanted without facing any consequences.

Coming back I put him on my ignore list so I could avoid him because I believed him to have that power signed to himself by himself.

AND NOT! Because I wanted to defy the rules of this forum.

And should I find him ever to wrong anyone again in such a disgusting way and he wont face consequences I will leave.

Tiberius is a deceitfull and dishonest bully and no matter whatever your possition whereever maybe, if you wrong someone, you should face responsibility!

I do not have anything to apologise for. In fact, I gave him the chance to settle this.

I will not be framed as an antisemite!
I will not be framed as being someone who calls people racist for no reason, other than damaging their credibility!!!!
I will not have myself silenced and the oppertunity to reply taken away!
I will not have myself constantly reminded in a depracating way of my spelling mistakes because of his lack of argument!


That is what he did! And if you believe that such behavior is in any way justified, then you have a problem and not me!
