Thread Name: BS: Why I am gone
Subject: RE: BS: Why I am gone
Musket, I do not impose anything, I just describe what sort of behaviour seems civilized to me. If you prefer to be perceived as an "onanist" (cf. the other thread on the same topic), you are not affected at all: proceed as you did before. If you feel to be perfectly civilized and my observation to be wrong, you are welcome to argue.
I avoid using nouns like "troll" (or "thief", "liar" etc.), since they suggest invariability. For my usage of the word "trolling" I gave definitions (conforming with Internet-savvy dictionaries) and arguments; you are welcome to challenge either, if you are specific.
Once per thread: this obviously refers to any single point. We should strive to make it clear and concise in a single message, but sometimes we fail that and need more than one post to elaborate or explain. What I am criticizing is repetitions for the sole reason of having the last word; this is not only rude but also pointless (- Mudcat threads being mistaken for online chats whose older posts would descend into oblivion).
Enjoy your effluvium.
