    I know the difference. Maybe you should explain it to your buddy. He is talking about mod action.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    I agree, the OP is a general question about forum rules. It's Wolf's pretentious post that makes it about a mod action by pointing out the cause for the OP (which is, if still in doubt) found fully stated in the Hole.

    Okay, I normally ignore the cow skull's posts, but I just have to ask. Can anyone explain to me what the hell he just said in Post #14? Jesus Stop Dancing Christ, if I'd known he was going to follow me around the board for two to three years making foolish, nonsensical comments about my posts because I criticized and embarrassed him...I'd have done considerably more at the time to criticize and embarrass him. I was being deliberately kind and restrained.

    That I am stalking you is delusional. That you have ever embarrassed me, or ever could, is delusional. That your ego cannot bear criticism of what you post is demonstrably true by emotional outbursts such as that above.

    What I said was you made the thread into a criticism of a moderation action. You did so with these words: "There is no excuse for personal attacks and insults, under any circumstances. Some people will perceive an insult, of course, if you do nothing more than disagree with them about something, but there's little a person can do about that. I know the thread you're referring to and you were insulted, no question."

    That ""There is no excuse for personal attacks and insults, under any circumstances" is something you ought to heed.

    You kind of know when you are posting in bad faith against the rules. At least, I do. I guess, you can realize it or ignore it... that being, your behavior.

    The rules are fairly commonsensical. And when you disagree with a mod action you can report or PM the disagreement to the mod team. Self-serving airing of grievances about rules, mods, and other members only serves to undermine the forum.

    His post was spot on. Your feigned ignorance fools no one. Get over yourself.

    Tis why I never report nor complain. I dont really care enough to complain I guess. For Forum smoothness and continuity.
