I can only assume that you are directing your comments towards me.
If so, I am a friend of yours, and it is for that reason that I have been tolerant, as I recognize the good you have provided for this venue. I have also recognized the disjointed candor that has been so distracting to most readers. For that reason you have been admonished to attempt to keep with the purpose of this board, which is to NOT be controversial, to be polite, to keep language acceptable for children and the aged, as we know nothing of the following this board receives, so we hope to present something that is acceptable for all. No one is offended by polite behavior, which can not be said for behavior that is rude and thoughtless.
The reading audience on this venue tends to be kind and gentle. Most of them (us) are here for the betterment of society, to share what we know, to lend a hand to those who may be struggling with their projects, to provide the necessary tip that gets them over the hump. It is highly unusual for readers, here, to be unkind, to mock others. We don't generally tolerate such behavior---it's not what the board is about.It is so easy to leave towards "greener pastures" . I didn't want to leave a trail that others would mock up.
I'm not quite sure I understand what is meant by that. If, by chance, one gets the wrong impression that time spent on the board provides some kind of insulation against the rules, that, somehow, because one has been here for a long time, they are not required to uphold the simple rules of the board, then you are misinformed. I have been here longer than anyone besides the board owner and Marty, the board administrator. I am not exempt from the rules. I am filled with anger from the miserable leadership this country has endured, but it is not the purpose of this board to give me a voice in venting my frustrations, so I refrain from doing so. Further, I swear like a drunken sailor, but I don't do it on this board. I have respect for the needs and wants of the owner, and of the administrator. I have respect for my fellow readers, who may not enjoy such behavior. I also have enough pride in myself to try to not be offensive to others, using this venue as a means to do so. I have been entrusted with the power to destroy the board with a single click---and I do not want to destroy that trust.There was passion and experiences over a long time. Not good enough? Fine.
I have a job to do on this board. That job is to ensure that it operates well, to be free of bad language, to be free of politics, to be free of religion. It also entails the disciplining of readers who choose to ignore the mandates set forth. For ANY reader to expect me to ignore their transgressions because we are "friends" is unreasonable.
The only one who dirties your path is you. You have the option of behaving, of observing the rules of the board. If you choose to ignore the mandates set forth and continue to post nonsense, you should not be surprised that some readers will have less than complimentary responses. Most folks come here to learn, to pursue their interests, their passions. They do NOT come here to read nonsense, to try to decipher veiled comments that are easily misunderstood, to have their senses offended by those who insist on being a part of the venue, yet don't have the discipline to not be disruptive.Please don't further dirty my path but That means you are Going to do it.
I am giving you a month off as of this moment. If, when that time elapses, you come back to this board with more nonsense, you will be banned permanently.
You alone are responsible for your destiny on this board. You have been given more than enough opportunities to show that you wish to remain a reader and participant. You, alone, have chosen to show that you are either not willing, or capable.
