Probably not wise to be throwing ultimatums around. you don't have to either read or participate in the thread. if it offends you don't click into it
Show me, please, the ultimatums or a singular ultimatum that you mention Lep.
This thread belongs to all, I speak on behalf of myself here, and for your kind information Sire, I have been abused personally by Runaway_Mindtrain and have reported the same and no less our respected Mod MadameLavender removed that post.
I know that on this particular thread there were no posts reported for abuse. that's because for the most part they insult each other
so if third party takes offence is not really a moderator problem. It is the third parties
I would like to also ask you a question, based on your reply to Ahavati, it sounded very much a cop out, a literal cop like reply to be honest -
point one- as I have mentioned before, perhaps you were not aware of the abusive conduct reported prior and action taken by the other Mod. I had only replied to one of Mr.Mindtrain's emotionally charged tirade that I would reply to him when he would speak like a human, his reply was 'fuck you' after a long rant against me personally. So to claim no abuse occured or reported is plainly wrong.
Point two- Here I am merely elaborating what I meant by cop-out, I will give you an example based on my own experience, I witnessed a mugging on my street, the victim ran away sobbing and the thugs ran in the other direction. I hailed a patrolling police car shortly afterwards and explained them what I witnessed, their reply - no we won't take any action unless the victim reports to us.
Your reply Sir is no different, and I expected, one of the roles of the mods is to ensure users are adhering to the terms and conditions of the website - Particularly section 4(User's Conduct ) paragraph 8 and in particular this section of that paragraph
"You may not post obscene, degrading, harassing or humiliating User Content on the Site. You may not post or transmit any false, defamatory, abusive, threatening or illegal User Content or User Content that infringes on the rights of others or the ability of others to enjoy this website. "
Point 3 is what I get from your reply is that anyone can abuse anyone publicly without any consequences, unless it is reported by the affected person all is ok . And the clause about the user's conduct and rights of others or the ability of others to enjoy this website are affected is no issue.
