Sorry for being AWOL lately ...

Recommended Posts

I'll give this a final attempt Steve, in the hope that it's possible to resolve our misunderstanding and

  • because I actually like your online persona (despite its incessant virtue signalling...) and
  • because we share a similar training...:

 

Do you really hold that your perspective of the collective is necessarily mine?

I get the feeling Steve's Virtue Signaling is a natural phenomena caused by lots of virtue.  :)

Thanks for the welcome.

I'm pretty busy and this won't get much focused attention until weekend.

If we collect together our individual perspectives of the collective into a collective collective this could be both your's, Steve's and everyone else's collective collective collective perspective, about which both individual and collective valid statements could be made.

To phrase it in a way you may find familiar, WTF gave you that idea?

I am newcomer to this place, but I did notice a lot of fights and insults. 

 

Yes, quite a lot lately.

Without moderation, some people here tend to indulge in throwing tantrums, bullying, trolling, insults, even threats on occasion.

The loudest, most obnoxious voices trample and often silence those that aren't interested in wasting so much energy on fighting. 

Rational discussions give way to emotional venting and ridicule.

It can be ugly.

Bringing some moderation back will help.

Perhaps, providing that you continue to make appororiate use of your catflap(s).

Your habitual lack of clarity about the use of the word "we".

We refers to the DaoBums community as a whole.

I'm understanding this to mean that you'll be enforcing the rules (and the Founding Principles) strictly, after having given the above fair warning.

 

Am I mistaken?

Gr8!

 

In future, I can take it that when you use "we", you'll be referring to yourself as representing the entire membership of this forum in general.

 

Thanks for clarifying.

What is the point of so much projection and animosity?

You're misreading the situation Steve.

 

Just because you're feeling those emotions yourself, it certainly doesn't signify that I'm feeling them myself (or projecting them - whatever that actually means).

I cannot provide any further evidence in writing but, if  you want to VoIP, you'll hear the evidence in my voice.
