I haven't had him around to call me anti-Christian in quite some time. Has he been banished for his language? If so I hope his banishment over soon as any permanence would be a heavy loss for this message board.

That's decent of you to say. I feel the same no matter who it is...which is why my Ignore option has never been considered and I've never btched about anyone to the OPPolice.

It seems that some individuals feel the need to police civility...

A rather low and pointless endeavor...

True civility comes from recognizing the intent of the vocabulary chosen... And in either replying or ignoring the speaker...

I am rather ashamed to admit that during my first month on the OPP I refused to respond to any poster who engaged in derogatory terms...

I was awakened when I read a rather inelegant post that was too logical to ignore...

I now enjoy engaging with all members regardless of the vocabulary employed...

I've been there twice for a week each time. I can't imagine his punishment would be any worse than mine and we've already lost Loki so I would hate to see another one of our better contributors go--especially for something as minor as the way we speak to each other. I mean, I have never complained about him and his language towards me was as bad as one can get. It would seem that if we can tolerate each other than whoever is moderating would be able to give us some slack.

This board can get out of control and there are those whose rhetoric offers nothing but to offend. Those are the ones that are deserving of banishment and sadly it seems to bring control some of the better contributors have disappeared...

I can remember Sicilian thing was suspended for 6 months 2 a year or something like that. I'm glad he came back. It does seem some have been removed. And others just plain left this site. There are the select few of us who remain in contact outside of this site. It seems that language and topic content is reviewed and censored on this site possibly by Mother Superior. I believe we are all adults here and if we use adult language we end up in the Penalty Box. They need us more than we need them.

I have engaged in a rather agressive manner with a number of spammers... And have lost my temper with a few members who seem to prefer ignorance and name calling to honest dialogue...
But I have never resorted to 'tattling' to Admin... Especially as the message I received from Admin concerning my query as to what would constitute a warning or a banishment was ridiculously vague...

Yes the one who would whack small children across the knuckles in the Catholic schools decades ago. For acting up in class. Yes these things did happen but not to me. I had a friend growing up who got it. How do schools get away with these things I don't know.

A tap across the knuckles sounds fine to me...

Schools are a place for civility and learning...

Tell that to the ones teaching our children now. Civility and learning starts with facts
And truths. Now ideas being pushed by the liberal left who ignore real history and push their radical ideals.
