You can tell me that I’m wrong but I am not naming people who are scared to post because you post. And you can doubt anything I say, instead of take any heed. This is your choice.
Inspirit directly said you are putting down those without medical backgrounds, which I have seen you do multiple times.
Your question to KC implies his behavior is subject to your oversight. He meant what he said, asking if he is in a mood and telling him to relax is once again disrespectful. I’m sure you’re aware of this but I will state it plainly again. Moderation is not a democratic process. He made a simple warning, which you disregarded. That, is not needed.
Your disputes are not one-sided even with the members you mentioned because there is no moral high ground in arguing. You seem to believe there is and reminding me that I’m not supposed to “use personal attacks” when I am clearly stating your behavior is taking threads off topic and making them toxic insults not only me as a moderator but my intelligence, as the tactic is inane and your regard for the Forum Guidelines is tenuous when convenient at best. Not in the spirit of the forum in the least.
Save your reminder, I said exactly what I did for reasons clearly stated. Your medical background gives you no right to trash talk other members or things they post, regardless your choice of articulation. Thinly veiled attacks on members or posts are against the Forum Guidelines and this is obviously becoming your strong suit.
Nobody is “scared” to post because of me, I can say that much. I know you don’t like me personally, which is a shame because besides I actually used to think you’re a pretty good guy around here but these things happen; sometimes people just don’t like each other. In fact, i have heard from several other member about how you follow them around threads and deliberately try to piss them off, so you they crack a little and you put them on hold or ban them. “Mr Power Trip” I think was used as your name by someone. That isn’t exactly my experience, and i disagreed at the time because I didn’t believe it but I am beginning to see something.
Still, it doesnt mean you have to say things that aren’t true. I really am asking anybody at all to come forward, even the people i have previously had a disagreement with on here (Phallobuilder, ringbolt, Inspirit etc) to tell me I have offended them. Because you see, phallobuilder and i are chatting as friends on his thread, ringbolt and i chatted as friends via PM and Inspirit99 is in this thread, where i respect what he said and he understands and respects what i said. You can see it by looking back.
Yes, he did say that mistakenly and not understanding my joke. I explained and he understood, even accepting “there was more to my post than i thought” and rescinded that comment. So don’t mis-represent him on that. I have never, once, ever put down someone with a medical background who has said what they know, or asserted facts. Ever. It’s never about if someone agrees with me or not, but facts that are indisputable, are facts. You are greatly mistaken that you ave seen this “multiple” times, so yes, im calling BS on that one for sure. Show me one single post of mine, not to Janus because he has some form of questioning from anybody with a medical background, but anyone else of these “many” you are talking about. Honestly, i am asking for just one, send it as a PM if you must because we are both derailling this thread with this nonsense.
Again, don’t twist things. I asked if he was alright and wanted to kick back on this thread for a bit, not if he was “in a mood”. Because yes, that would have been disrespectful, and I personally appreciate and respect KC for both his general persona on here and the person he is, and the things he has to share. Don’t try to spin that in any other way. Im sure KC understands my intentions. Same with Capernicus, and KC, he has my respect too, we even chatted via PM sometimes so i just felt i needed to clarify myself, because i hate to be misrepresented. Hence why i am replying to you, because you seem to e deliberately doing that.
I never mentioned a moral highground of any kind. The funny thing about how you feel about your actions is that it doesn’t matter. When people feel “personally attacked”, that is subjective and not subject to your judgement. *cough*
This was all over until you came, so actually it is you who is taking the thread off topic. I haven’t made any insults to you at all, so be offended if you choose to be, that’s your choice. But if you are, you’re more sensitive than you ought to be because any normal person wouldn’t be.
You’re only pissed off because I’m talking to you, not with disrespect, but with an equal footing as i would anybody else. You really should come down from your high horse TG, its not in the spirit of this forum. The reason for this post is not for flaming, as I do not wish for any reply or answer to this. The topic ends when you leave it, because we all left it behind a while ago. This post is because you mis-interpreted and tried to display my words as something else, which i have clarified. And you can say nothing more about my clarification, because i am the author of those words and the meaning is not up for dispute.
I want to point out: This is a message of clarification, not flaming, because I feel force to defend myself here to not be mis-represented.
