This means I shall now have to confine myself to the 'What you had for dinner' thread.  I'm unsure about the 'what did you listen too' thread, but I may stick a toe in the water.

I've not had any nightmares whatsoever ever since my prescription dosage adjustment in the middle of last year.

Since you don't use foul language I fail to see why your posts are being deleted and infracted.  I didn't know insensitive remarks were worthy of infraction.......very sad.

Perhaps, but that whole thread is disgusting.......a treasure trove of trolling, if you will.

Sure. But Lunar is only one man...Opebo basically said that it was the Republicans who did it. That's not on the level of insensitivity, it's just stupid trolling.

Saying" the people who committed this assassination are the same people who just took over congress" is both trolling and a discussion-damaging excessive hyperbole that Dave opposes.  End of story.

Something has changed or is it just my imagination? I got 6 infraction points during the last four days for posts that were some of the most innocuous I've ever posted.
Is bad humor considered now a punishable offense by the mods?

Couple points:

-You've also been reported 8 times in the last few days by a variety of posters and received 5 points, so you may not be acting as innocuous as you claim. 

-7 of the reports were on my boards, but the majority of them I did not assign infraction points for.  Of the 3 points I assigned, two were for insinuating another poster was a serial murderer and the other was for insinuating that another poster was a pedophile.  Considering that I don't moderate the Forum Community boards, that bad humor constitutes either a personal attack or trolling in my book ... especially given the context of the Giffords thread.

I know we might not agree, but really, you got to be less personal and less nasty to other forum members if you want to be completely infraction-points free (for whatever that's worth).

Other posters started the joke about CARLHAYDEN's absence.
And I thought that Stark's "exotic" tastes were a matter of fact.

BTW, what happens if you reach 10 points?

10, nothing happens.  I think you get a warning somewhere around 40-50.  Muting happens at 100.  Mod review somewhere in between.

(And I've reported other people making those Carl references too.)

Also, regardless of how you feel about Stark's "exotic tastes" -- tell me again why that belongs in a thread on my board about six people dying and an attempted assassination?

Wasn't it something about opebo arguing that Thailand despite its limited freedom of speech has many other positives that make up for that?

No, I do not think the thread entitled "Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ) in critical condition, 6 others killed in Arizona" was the proper place to put that sort of insinuation of pedophilia against someone else, even if you were building off of someone else's post.

You get a warning at 25 and mod review at 50.

Don't worry dude, it's no big deal. I've been well over 30 points before with nothing happening. They fall off after thirty days. You'll be fine. It is so insanely easy to game this system (and I'm quite experienced at it due to my job having a similar system for attendance)

Really, the warning is at 25?  For some reason I thought it was higher.

Anyway, the above post is correct.  A few points is nothing to be concerned about.  You want to think more about your rate of accumulation. 

It is theoretically possible, I guess it should be noted, to respond constructively to it, even if it's technically possible to game the system.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

Also, as of now, here is the partial guideline we've come up with for post moderation:

1 - Profanity, Empty Quote that is considered spam
2 -
3 -
4 -
5 -
6 -
7 -
8 -
9 -
10 - Nudity, extreme spamming (ogis-type spamming), Vile personal attacks, death threats, references to moving to Siberia

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

I wish those members who post would have some text or label in any signature block images that they use.  Sometimes I recognize the image, but other times (most times) I'm left wondering.
