...and there is so much evidence that WE are exacerbating global warming and other environmental problems that you'd NEED an SUV to carry printed copies of the data. Believe what you wish....but buy wading boots while they're cheap.

I think the lightening rod idea has nothing to do with it. There are plenty of people with controversial opinions who are targeted with a lot of personal abuse here, just as I am, who have not had their posting curtailed. There are also a few people who habitually abuse other posters here (which is against the rules, while having controversial opinions wasn't against the rules, last time I checked) who have not had their posting curtailed. So that idea just doesn't add up.

But like I said, the people who run the forum can treat people however they like here, since it's their forum.

crazyhorse said: "...I don't understand carolC's statements about being unable to comment. I have nearly always disagreed with her but surely she's allowed to say what she wants to."

So far, I don't understand either. I DO know that for a long time, she said pretty much what she wished. As to Carol's remark about "selective enforcement" I offer this: when ANY poster becomes, as heric said, "a lightning rod for controversy.", some of their posts are inevitably more controversial than others. It is common for folks with "an ax to grind" to push the limits. Thus, any enforcement is necessarily "selective". When & how does a moderator decide that 'enough is enough'?

As I said....I do NOT know exactly what brought on this limitation on Carol's posts, nor do I know exactly how it was worded to her....and basically, it is none of my business unless one party or another chooses to inform me.
All I am doing is pointing out 'how things work' and why it is so difficult to 1)describe reasonable rules...and 2)to enforce them equitably & reasonably.

By & large, for a number of years, it has seemed to me that most folks were given a pretty LONG leash before anyone censured them...and on several occasions, I have seen decisions reversed and restrictions lifted.....so why not just wait & see and not make wild guesses about details you are not aware of?

Much too easy, huh?

I do not agree with anything that carol has ever said, but I do not want her prevented from speaking, and do not understand the reasoning behind her gagging.
I complained a few times on the Bobby Sands thread about the behaviour of a guest.
He told lies about me and ignored my challeges to justify.
He never once challenged an argument , but called me names like bigot.
His guest posts against a member were allowed to stand, and now I read that a member is being restricted in her posts, which are never personal.
What is going on?

I'm having some difficulty seeing how a theory that I'm not allowed to directly reference could be the case. I'm still getting the same amount of personal abuse directed at me as I was before, more, actually (because it seems that some people only like to fight with people who aren't in a position to defend themselves), so I don't see in what way anything constitutes a compromise. Unless one can describe something that is entirely one-sided as 'compromise'.

It seems to me that people either consistently enforce their rules, or they don't. There's certainly no less fighting and bickering going on in the Mudcat between people who aren't me than there was before the rule was put in place, and those people aren't having any restrictions placed on their postings, so I don't think it has anything whatever to do with whether or not people are playing nice. I think Q probably has it right.

However, having said that, if the powers that be in the Mudcat want to selectively enforce their rules, or have one set of rules for some people and another for other people, that's their right.

Ramble on

Most if the time it's a judgment call and most of the time it's well made (IMHO). However, how often should a judgment call be "correct"? "Most of the time" doesn't cut it, because at 50% the level of judgment would be equal to a flip of a coin. What would be a perfect score in exercising judgement when there has to be room for legitimate differences? I don't know. That percentage less the true percentage would equal the amount of bias in the moderating.

I think it is guaranteed that there is some level of bias inherent in the process.

The bias could be issue basis or it could be bias against the personality. I can't think of any others.

'If you don't agree with me you're a complete idiot' is an extraordinarily common approach around here, as is the more simple "you're a complete idiot."

CarolC has endured an extraordinary level of "you're a complete idiot" thrown her way. Mostly it is because of bias against her positions on substantive issues. There's more, though, because she is a lightning rod for controversy. I have a guess, not much more than that, that the analogy is not "flies to honey," but something closer to enraged bees. That is, a cluster of them form around her on the issue, already agitated, then something about the exchange enrages them. My guess is that the aggravation arises because she will parse their words, unflinchingly, unfailingly and interminably.

I only mention this arcane theory because I don't feel like working the unique retrictions placed on her suggest that The Moderator may have come up with a similar theory.

So imagine you are Carol. You never, ever use the complete idiot allegation, yet you have been stifled, even after being called a complete idiot ad nauseum. Add to that the fact there are "beloved" posters who can pull that crap a lot, and, worse, the sad but unacnowledged truth t that there are sycopants around here, who also do that directly at her.

It's a tough one when you are a moderator who has to clean up the crap over and over and over again. But someone went through the trouble to craft a compromise for Carol.

Maybe just maybe I don't know but Carol maybe you should have altered (and still can) something in the technical approach, without compromising on substance.

Ramble off.

That's exactly it, freedom of speech to my mind is a free exchange of ideas, not the name calling and the 'if you don't agree with me you're a complete idiot' school of thought. Many have died, and many more will die defending the right to freedom of speech, but there are those who quite simply don't get that, and very likely never will. Sad really.

Mudcat, in general, has very loose standards and largely open discussion on most topics. (I have been here since the beginning and can say this with authority.)
As in any forum, we occasionally get threads where tempers rise, issues get debated hotly, and name calling, bad language and personal attacks & threats are posted. In addition, a few folks have pressed certain points to excess, used excessive copy/pasting, signed 'guest' posts under various pseudonyms, and otherwise caused uproar & disputes that made life for moderators difficult as they tried to keep things flowing smoothly.
Obviously, rules had to be made, and some penalty had to be possible for those who, in the judgment OF the main moderator, broke those rules. I would suggest that folks like "wacky Bennett" take...oh...a few weeks, and read some of the history for the last 6-8 years before proclaiming what should be done or not done.

As even Carol C admits, this IS a privately owned site, and the management can apply the rules without appeal to the US Supreme Court.
This being said, I have watched this process for many years, and IT AIN'T EASY! Those who are censored, censured, blocked, admonished, edited, deleted..etc..almost never agree that they were guilty, and they USUALLY insist that 'things just as bad' were done by others who 'get by with it'.
It is all a matter of a judgment call.

As I said above, I frankly am not aware of why Carol C. has had these restrictions applied at this time...or even if she is accurately representing them. I do know that Carol has been at the center of some ongoing hotly contested debates for quite awhile....I have debated her myself on several.

(She could, of course...with no penalty, PM me if she wished, and explain the situation from HER point of view. I assume she does not feel it would help.)

So....there are 2 issues. 1) Whether Carol is being treated unfairly within the context of Mudcat's own rules, and 2) whether Mudcat should even attempt to model its own rules after public institutions like NBC or The New York Times...and by implication 2c) whether all those who think they know the answers without knowing all the history and specific details should offer their opinions.

(Boy it is hard work to write one of those while attempting to be fair & neutral!)

CarolC is quite correct in her summary of the situation. To compare her plight to that of the African American community struggling for civil rights is comparing apples and oranges. This site is privately owned and operated and not goverened by any requirements for fair and equal treatment of any members. Aside from threatening to boycott any advertisers there is not a lot of leverage that could be employed to change the situation.

Although she and others might not like it, we are here at the suffrage of those that run the site. Without them there would be no site so occasionally they get to make rules that soe people won't like. If you don't like that, you are completely free to take your marbles and go home.
