I say go for it... as an experiment. Ban all the women of SF for 3 days.
 
maybe thats not such a good idea. a woman with 3 days free to think of a counter attack for being banned from SF, not such a good Idea :)
 
I'd say because men and woman are the complement of one another, we need woman's thought here to keep an even balance and perspective about things. I wouldn't want to see them banned for any reason.
 
No way, I want them looking pretty, I might even put some ribbons in their hair and crudely paint their mouths with lipstick.

That would be sexist though.

In all seriousness I think Plazma just asked for some of the ladies to settledown a bit, unfortunately it might of read as over generalised as being all the ladies.

You have to take into consideration that "Character Assassination" can cause misery to people. Some people could be over sensitive to it and could do something silly in response (I'm not saying thats the case with the current Sciforums Soapbox episode... We really should hire a cartoonist like DAVE to put some images to these forum brawls.)

Basically a general rule of thumb is not to allow people to push people over the edge, as while we like the idea of Sciforums being popular and talked about on the internet, we'd prefer it not to be in regards to how inadequately we dealt with abuse that caused a persons suicide or the like. (and to those that like to jump to conclusions, no Takandjive hasn't threatened to do anything so remedial, in fact I haven't written because of her but because of the number of occurrences of this sort of "Character Assassination" attempt in the past).

I think rather than a 3 day vacation, the "sexist men" of the forum should band together and buy you girls a Mud Wrestling Ring to sort out your differences.

Stryder, what are you talking about? :confused: My brothers are having exams so I had to be "there" for them. What have I missed? :bawl:

Edit: I thought it's the Orleander vs Shorty things until I read again and see "Takandjive" is mentioned in your post. What happened? Link??

It's a thread that is now locked and in the cesspool, called the slut of sciforums or something.

I can't find it :confused: It must have been deleted. Soo... it must have been something very sensitive, sorry to bring it up! Ah, sigh, I missed again yet another drama >.<
 
Yup, they deleted it.

In sum, brent went on with one of his crazy dialogs in which he pretends he has a relationship with a random person on the board, in this case takandjive. Then shorty went apeshit. She claims that a bunch of people PMd her saying that takandjive is a camwhore.
I don't know why that's anyone's business, even if it's true, but you know shorty. She can't stand the attention being on anyone else.
