Thread Name: BS: Debate vs Discussion
Subject: RE: BS: Debate vs Discussion
Damn, Dave. I thought the rules of civil debate were common sense. Do I have to draw pictures? If we write up specific rules and sanctions, then we have to put up with a bunch of jailhouse lawyers figuring out loopholes that allow them to be nasty, and answering their demands that we exact appropriate punishment against others.
How's this for a rule?
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
Sorry, Dave, but nobody here wants to be pulled down into that shit. If you can't figure out what's civil, no amount of explaining and rule-writing is going to help you understand.
And Donuel, I suppose the thread you refer to as "government taken and lost babies at the border" is the one titled BS: Toddlers housed in kennel cages. But then again, maybe not. You've been here long enough to know that I always put my name and a brief explanation on my moderator actions, and that other moderators disagree with that practice. My name is not on that thread, so I can't explain the closure. If you don't like the action, complain to firstname.lastname@example.org and don't put blame where blame is not due.
