n George Orwell's "1984" the principal character spends his life erasing all official record of any person who has fallen into disfavour. Not only do they cease to exist, they never existed.
A bit over a week ago I had a falling out with a hubber "weholdthesetruths", often called "WHTT". I decided to look at the hub over which we had fallen out. I discovered that WHTT is now a non-person. He has no entry, he has no hubs. The index has a few passing references to comments he made.
I do not mourn his passing, but does anyone know why?
Charles, it appears he was "banned." I am not certain I like the idea of that - regardless of how far out his view of the world and my own were.
Hey DTR, when people are banned, they are told that if it continues, then their bans will become longer and longer, until it results in a permanent ban.
Just to let you know. And, yes, I've been banned several times.
Apparently WHTT has unpublished hubs. Why? What difference does it matter. People come and go all the time.
I suspect it was his inability to tell the difference between robust debate and personal insults, really personal insults.
It seems Gloating has taken over as being the most annoying thing in the forums Cags!
If you need instruction how to crash and burn on HP, heres the post that did 'weholdthesetruths' in.
The man was flailing wildly at everyone. IMO, what did him in was insulting a senior HP moderator. The moderator was trying to get him to chill. He had his own worldview, which we all do. He refused to accept any challenge to that view. Thats a problem if you want to do battle on the forums. And I did challenge it his view.
I don't expect a Christmas card from weholdthesetruths this year. Oh, well.
