CENSORSHIP POLICY

All off-topic and personally insulting comments, and all ad-hominem attacks, will be disposed of quietly and without sorrow.

Any viewpoint on Scientology, L Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige, or cults, philosophies, and religions in general, will not be censored unless I feel like it.

Alanzo feeds his ego by running a blog. I feed my cyber addiction by participating. I recently realized I’m a cyber addict. Sometime soon I’ll see if I can stay away from the computer for a full day. If I can’t, I guess I’ll have to look for a cyber addiction Twelve Step Program.

Just delete Disqus, and walk away from everything else. A couple of months away has aremarkable effect.

Is this an ALL INTERNET routing? Or is it limited distribution.

Gib commented on ESMB that he felt this policy is against freedom of speech. Well, yeah. It’s your blog. It’s your intellectual property. Not his. I get his objection, but he’s wrong.

why am I wrong?

On a serious note…I think there is a simple rule to healthy living on the blogs:

Attack the idea – not the person

Whenever I see a poster resort to personal attacks, name calling, cyber-bullying, etc, I lose a little respect for them. They have abandoned intellectual discourse and have turned their sights on the messenger; thinking if they shoot the messenger, that somehow the idea or viewpoint will be harmed.

Never works.

I’ve seen plenty of holier than thou posts there about respecting others etc by people who…don’t.

Michelle Sterling, who owns ESMB, did her best to convince me that various things were all my fault. And I did exacerbate things by defending myself and others when the incessant remarks would start. It didn’t work. It made things worse. But if you could have seen some of the allegations-whoa! Really bad stuff. She wrote a rant about me.

So, another time I realized it truly was them-she wrote another rant about my posting style. Cuz I like to figure out WHY things are bad, wrong, etc. I like to dissect things. There’s nothing rude in that, it’s not against the ROCs of any forum. And she was just -wow- it was deeply personal and very weird. Screaming about how I go no, it’s green but it could be yellow and blue. She really went off like a firecracker. What msg board admin DOES that? Posting style- are ya kidding me?

The other person yelling about my posting was someone who’d been very butt hurt about my interests in Independent Scn and when I said I no longer was an indie, he was all like, you are, too. Can’t win! One day he messaged me asking for help in an area of my expertise in my career. I answered nicely and tried to help. Later, he started howling about “iffy this and iffy that” over and over.

A couple of them also saw something I posted here last year about a time just before I left, where I’d actually wanted to die one weekend. I’d described the events leading up to it. They saw it and breezed right past the part about wanting a truck to hit me and laughed at what I’d written while misquoting it, as usual.

That may be one reason I never got too entrench in ESMB. I’m interested in the War of Ideas, not personality clashes, or convincing people I’m right, or “people oughta be like…”. It’s like they’ve learned nothing of their Scn experience. What a waste.

Gib

well then stick to that idea and don’t comment on posts you think are silly.

Note to self: don’t comment on silly posts…damn it, did it again.

I agree and have always done that. But the person that ad homs, then you know.
