    do not use "we" when you alone decide to embark on a particular course of action as if you have the backing of the staff. it is dishonest and yes when bebelina open a thread in sf asking why her thread was locked, logic demands that you answer in the same thread. you instead go to the locked thread and make a post giving reasons bumping it in the process. a post that has been subsequently removed because apparently some here feel it inappropriate as well.

    first "i" then "we"? take responsibility for your own idiotic actions instead of attempting to tar your colleagues

    stop lying. the timeline easily establishes the sequence of events. that thread was sans your explanation until a query was made with regards to its status in new thread in sf

    what the hell?

    man up and admit your mistake

    bite me. you warn me for alleged illogic? that i have a different account of events? whats next, a ban?

    i am warning you. stick to moderating your forum. you lack the brains to do anything else

    I think you're playing a damned if he does or doesn't role on this one, Gustav.

    Where do you get your scalpels? I mean, we all split hairs once in a while, but here you're trying to split spermatic flagellates.

    And yeah. I gotta get me one of them blades.

    You do realize, do you not, that to those not intimately familiar with your long history in this community, you actually do sound kind of like an obsessive fanboy moron?

    What mistake would you like him to admit? Failure to be a perfect gustavian bureaucrat?

    Actually, given some of the stupid shit people have sent you for in the past ...?

    No, really. Are you founding a Sciforums chapter of the Joe Horn Society?

    Ease up Gustav.

    He actually posted in that thread to advise what the moderators were doing at that time regarding that thread. It was either a case of leave it there and have everyone guessing or advise of what was going on. More transparency is a good thing. Abusing him for it is not the route you would want to be taking, no matter what, even if you wish to protect the subject matter from raised eyebrows about what had been revealed in that thread. Your linking it only draws more attention to her. The reason it had been deleted was simply to ensure all of that situation remained out of this forum. You just brought it all back and up again.

    If you note the reason it was later deleted was because what he mentioned had been wiped from the thread, thereby erasing that little chapter entirely.

    So settle. Abusing him for having done the right thing at the time is wrong of you.

    Wrong:

    This message has been deleted by James R. Reason: irrelevant since the offending posts have been deleted

    Deleted because it is no longer relevant... maybe my idea of "inappropriate" is different from yours, but the post is irrelevant, not inappropriate. Also, I was not the one to initially lock the thread, so you would do well to get your facts straight.


    As stated above - I added the post to explain why it was locked. It was decided by the moderation team to leave it locked while other matters were discussed (thus, we). Again, it would serve you well to get your facts straight.


    And I wasn't even aware of the query in a new thread at the time - you ARE aware that there is a moderators-only forum in which moderation/administration staff can discuss things, correct? And that sometimes discussions there result in changes to things you can see... or are you so blinded by your personal agenda that you think your view on things is the only possibility? However, if you MUST have proof, I will ask the other moderators if I may screenshot the discussion in the moderators forum to show you.


    You are acting like, well, an irate pre-teen... instead of stopping and thinking for a moment about what is going on, you are charging headlong into a fight that, honestly, doesn't even need to exist. Just like a hormone-charged pre-teen who thinks someone insulted him.

    My only "mistake" there was bothering to reply to your private message... oh, and thinking I was the only one that received it - I wasn't aware it was sent to others when I replied. That and letting you get under my skin, but that's another thing entirely :shrug:

    No, the warning is just for being an incredible arse - I wouldn't ban someone for that alone.

    Heh, whatever you say Gustav... whatever you say.

    Oh, and by the way - good show dragging something you started via private messages into public view... seems to be your standard modus operandi if I'm not mistaken.

    For the record though, I do apologize to all if my note in that thread was unclear. I will endeavor to make sure I am more succinct in the future.
