    What did he do, I missed it

    1. TheMirrorBall profile image61
      TheMirrorBallposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Left a comment with a supposed joke attack at TMMason. He later posted apology hubs which are still up, and agreed that what he had done was wrong, and was then banned anyway.

      1. TMMason profile image73
        TMMasonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I didn't want anyone banned. I never even complained, just defended myself in the hubs is all.

        Just clearifying.

        I do not take posting attacks to heart. I actually got a chuckle out of the post.

            I want to say I agree. But somehow it seems wrong to say about someone sticking up for me.

            IDK what to say. But I appreciate the thought whoever it was, but I wish you hadn't complained.

            Sorry

                Thank you. But I don't deserve anyones admiration. I screw up often and frequently.

                I just hope I learn from it, and move on.

        Are you sure? I reviewed that thread and did not honestly see anything out of line, he said it was a joke and I didn't even see any hard feelings between him or TMMason.

    Everyone who has been banned has been banned for a violation of our forum rules.

    Bans for personal attacks are temporary - 3 days for the first violation, and increasingly longer (and eventually permanent) durations for subsequent bannings (because it's increasingly difficult to feign ignorance of the rules), and only apply to the forums. You can still publish Hubs.

    We really, really don't like wasting our time moderating posts when people can't act in a civil manner in an online forum, but we will to make sure our rules are adhered to.

    Again, here are the rules:

      TheMirrorBallposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      We do understand I think... I know it's tough, and lines are thin... and perhaps strictly according to the rules they have been crossed... Are all these bans 3 day bans, or some longer? Thanks, TMB

      cosetteposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      Jason nailed it when he said "civil manner". name-calling, especially the C word, is pretty bad. would you like it if it were directed at you? probably not.

        TheMirrorBallposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        I can see most people wouldn't. I'm not hurt by words posted through the internet, no matter how foul.

      Suggestion:

      Don't allow people to post to the forum unless they have published hubs, maybe a set minimum number.

      Most of the worse violators seem to be 'ghosts' i.e. people who joined last week and have no hubs and no followers and no intention of doing anything except hide behind their sock puppet troll identity.

      It can be difficult to stay balanced on the forums, especially as some posters are masters at winding up their adversaries.

      Personally I disliked the name GodIsDead spelled in reverse, too many satanic overtones for me, but He or She was not that bad and they never bothered me with their 'humor', which is what they posted most of the time if I remember correctly.

      1. TheMirrorBall profile image61
        TheMirrorBallposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        A good suggestion agua, one for the New Feature section, definitely!

        About the name, there isn't a lot you can do about that. A first offence ban should be three days in that case though. Has Bloodnlatex been banned before? Has Smooth As Silk? Man, this is a sad day for forums... R.I.P Free speech

          that IS a great idea! it would certainly cut down on the sockpuppet population a bit.

    The rules are on page two of this thread and yes there are those who will report just because the choose to , but this is the reason why I wrote this thread because all of the reporting is sometimes unneccesary and HP does not have time for all of the bickering and pettiness. I hope the New Year brings less bans and more one-on-one resolution. Just my opinion. smile

          aguasilverposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Playing with it is fun! - and the new CS versions make life simple to manipulate photos and stuff, but it's an expensive program, and if all you need to do is play, try a open source freeware program called GIMP, which is almost Photoshop, but a lot better than some of the other 'basic' art programs, and free is as good as it gets!

          The lake behind your profile pic looks just like the lake near where I used to live...

          I was thinking about compiling and writing. That way you could whip a bunch out.

          What people,(we), don't know, is infintismally greater, than what we do know. That applies to all fields of thought and study. Including Science.

          That knowing thing, is a twisted quote from someone. Can't remember who right now?...

          So the collection of knowledge is a respected field among Authors.

          So hey, why not.

      TMMasonposted 7 years ago in reply to this

      All writers suffer from that, "Writer's Block", it isn't a myth.

      But you can compile. Just reaserch and be sure to includ all viewpoints. I try not to argue for or against in a complation.

      My beliefs are mine and I shouldn't infect a, non-partisan,(for lack of a better phrase or word.), compilation of facts with my own ideologies.

      I try, mind you. lol

      It isn't the easiest thing to accomplish.

      Yep, that lake is beautiful and we would take a drive around it that took us through Holm Oak forests where Iberian pigs fed from the acorns for four years before becoming Jamon Iberica a wonderfully sweet ham sured in salt and hung in all the local bars where you ate it with a decent red Rioja wine and some ancient Manchego cheese....
