We all know who they are.

Sort it out please.

Who are you talking about?

I won't name them here, or in a PM. Simply because I don't know who's friendly with who etc.

 

Fine, but don't expect them to search the entire site , to find out who's posts bother you .

Personally ,I figure ,  if you really want to have something done to rectify an injustice or some specific case of an abuse , you will end up needing to point out the offense. Staff is pretty fair here , unless somebody racks up a record of being a problem. 

Either they know already who it is you mean, and their preference would already be a concern for you ,  ( if they had it) , or its a mystery and you're leveling a vague accusation about everyone and implying that staff doesn't do a proper job of moderating it. ( which they wouldn't be inclined to agree with , because they already do a good one)

This is silly to complain, because some posts are bothering someone.

You don't sound as someone who has 35 years of practice, but rather someone who is still new to everything including forums and internet.

I will show you a secret of staying on thedaobums and any other "forum". 

If someone finds themselves in this list, it does not mean I hate you personally, I could have found some of your posts particularly dumb or annoying.

Also this list is far from being full, as with most people there are no interactions.

This is actually fairly normal situation, there are different levels, some don't have any experience, some have rich experience.

You will feel nothing from those below, and wont understand those above.

 

If you want to communicate only with those who have similar level / understanding / tradition you need to make your own group, easiest thing to do - telegram / whatsapp / facebook.

Running a forum is unnecessary hassle.

Moderators take note.

There are a handful of people who think TDB should be just like they want it to be.

They should be immediately banned.

That's all, thank you for reading.

I too would like to protest about unnamed persons posting unspecified comments on various threads.

It's outrageous and should be stopped.

I call on the moderators to take wide ranging yet undefined actions over unlimited timescales.

For goodness sake this cannot go on.

This is not the point. 

Of course it is.

 

You want those who you consider disruptive/non-contributing/whatever to be stifled. You have a preference as to how others should behave...and your words suggest that something of value can only be found in what you find to be of value. I dont think any of us is smart enough to know what someone else might find value in, learn from, or whatever.

 

Second note to moderators:

Unless there's a TOS violation going on - please continue to leave us the fuck alone. 

Thank you. :)

The guessing game can be fun, but I still like context.

I've yet to meet somebody who doesn't bring anything to the table - even if I choose not to ingest (internalize) what they've presented.

Please explain how what you're suggesting differs from what you're taking a stand against.

I have a solution! 

1) Ban everyone. 

2) Allow only persons that have a generation number in a traditional chinese method to become members. 

 

Problem solved.

Having a difference in opinions is what makes us unique as individuals. Disagreeing about things is also of course valuable. Nothing wrong with that whatsoever. But it's another thing to be told that your opinion has no value, that you are wrong, that you don't matter, and when you try to point out the error of someone's way of communicating this to you, it doesn't seem to get through.

It's hard to express in words accurately what you mean. Sometimes there is confusion, misinterpretation and a misunderstanding.

When people follow you around in different threads just to have a pop, that's trolling.

 

Yes, it's trolling - but it can also be of value to you... if you take the opportunity to explore why you let some idiot's behavior bait you or bother you so much... or, you could just put them on Ignore. That's what I do, lol. Idiots don't bother me; I just choose to not spend energy on pages and pages of hooey. B)
