I'm with you Brian

Now about that question ...

The point is that you are wasting more time making up excuses for why you cannot send in a report, prolonging the issue, than simply sending in the report to see where it leads. Who knows, the outcome may surprise you; if the content of the report is genuine, of course.

I have no problem sending reports. I can choose for myself though right? I made my opinion known in the appropriate place. There has been no discussion at all on it there, so I have my answer. I'm quite happy with that. It is not me who is complaining that I can't report. I have nothing I need to do.

No question to be answered. I started commenting long after you started complaining.

The long and short of it is that you are taking up server space dragging this out.

FACT, you do not own this board.

FACT, you have said what you wanted.

FACT, they listened and made their ruling.

Again, if they were singling you out, you would have been gone a long time ago.

They give more leeway than tons of other websites, much more so than major media, even when religion is not the topic.

I have been online for 14 years on several boards and am on others right now.

I have been booted and band from other boards, including atheist pages on paltalk and pages on FB. It is going to happen.

And I can tell you in my experience on all those other boards and pages you have it far better here than you would in other places.

You have been on this board since I have been on. It is not a conspiracy.

2. I've clearly pointed out what is trolling in my opinion
3. I think all of the staff have told me that they don't agree with what I see as trolling
4. The only difference in opinion is based upon the belief position of the observer
5. Reporting an offense of trolling to a group that don't agree with your judgement of trolling is pointless
6. The staff warn against pointless reporting wasting their time

1. The rule goes on to explain its heading, surprisingly.

Quote:Trolling is where a person makes a deliberately provocative posting with the aim of inciting an angry response, and is not allowed. As discussions can at times get heated, not all provocative posts will get classed as trolling. However, if a member is found to be making multiple such posts, or appear to only be using the forum to provoke people, they will be in violation of this rule.

I didn't have a hand in the grammar, which does grate I'll admit.

2. Your opinion as to what constitutes trolling is fine and that's why we ask you to report it. But if your opinion, which you're already said is subjective, disagrees with the rules and the behind the scenes deliberations as to their application, you might want to think about reappraising your opinion.

3. See 2.

4. Sure about that? That's the only difference?

5. Reporting is never pointless. It's the primary method of communicating your opinions on rule interpretation, and ours by decision.

6. Pointless reporting? Or frivolous, maybe even vindictive reporting? Basically there's a world of difference between reporting suspected rule breaches and basically trolling the report system - as tautological as that might appear. That system is a vital part of Staff monitoring and ought not to be abused.

Got any more, or are you done with this?

Hold on there - there's been no discussion in the "appropriate place"? Where's your evidence for that?

That's the only difference I'm concerned with, and discussing here. Your religious bias determines your judgement of trolling. This much is clear. To have any rule where only one aspect of religious opinion dictates the judgement is blatently unfair.

Oh my.

We're going all exclusive club here again aren't we. I'm opposed to all that nipple bearing and trouser rolling.
