I was just infracted, one again, for criticizing the behavior of a poster rather than making a personal attack on him! The arbitrary judgments of the moderating team are indefensible.

I wrote:

LOL, no. Please take some time from acting like an idiot hack to read about things so you actually know what you're talking about.

Note that I never called the poster himself an "idiot hack", but merely criticized his actions as idiotic and hackish. It seems that we are no longer allowed to talk about other posters at all, unless we shower them with glowing praise!1

1And even then we should be careful that our praise is not too glowing, lest we are charged with "excessive hyperbole."

the best mode of action would be for the community to migrate away from Inks moderated boards into another Board.

This could work. Boycott the Inks Boards.

If I went through and reported every nasty thing said about Santorum, half of you would be gone. 

Posters say nasty things about candidates all the time.  Not only Santorum, but the level of nastiness directed at Romney by forum posters is earth shattering.

Posters, apparently, can say nasty things about candidates, they just cannot say nasty things about other posters.

A fair amount of the posts people have complained about in this thread werent' even on my board (like Lief's most recent one).  But if Tweed & Co. want to boycott my boards, I think I'll be ok with that.

At least Inks is objective. He just needs to ease up and realize he is more mall cop than police officer.

Yeah, after four years of being a non-disruptive poster on the forum, never considered a troublemaker, even someone who was liked well enough to be elected Atlasian President, Napoleon should be allowed to stay.

But I like being able to bribe him!

I'm flattered you think I have even the power close to a mall cop... you think more highly of my position than I do.

Mall cops can kick you out and not let you back in.  Even I don't have that power.

I know... just thought it'd be fun to compare myself to a mall cop.  But hey, if I'm gonna be any type of cop, I'll at least have a gun.  If you don't have a gun, you're just a security guard at best.

Hey the similarities of this forum to Lost probably beg to be pointed out in this context. Shifting loyalties and conflicts that evolve, long term characters, ones who just come, Phil left "the island" yet returned just like some characters, etc.

Actually any "story" on this forum does resemble a TV series where the writers have decided to just go haywire and have given up on any type of consistent narrative or theme (another great example is post-season 3 Weeds.)

What happened post season 3? I have not seen the later seasons.

They basically just go around drug dealing in different locales. First Mexico, then Seattle, then Michigan and then in the last season New York City. Which is why I'm not too fond of it anymore, it's just a comedy about drug dealing and interacting with shady people like Mexican crime lords or Wall Street ponzi scheme scammers instead of the satire on suburbia that it started out as. So yeah it's just the writers doing whatever crazy thing they want now, similar to Atlas drama. The season 3 finale works pretty well as a series finale to the entire show too so you can just pretend it ended there.
