Hi Verjigorm:

What was the thread title? We never delete anything on purpose. The thread still exists. It was just moved to a private area.

Regards,
It was called communion something... It was a thread that looked like requests for strategy assistance.

Restoration of the thread, even if it was locked, would be appreciated as it would at least allow people to make their own judgments rather than relying on hearsay.
Fair enough Verjigorm. I will have it moved back but it will be locked, as it was just a form of spam. The thread title is "Managing Communions - the sombre challenge". The thread is here.

Best regards,

Squirrelloid and pyg, you are both trying your best to push our buttons. If you'd like to continue to enjoy use of our boards, it's time to cease the games.

I fail to see how Squirrelloid's response was in any way deserving of such a warning, as it came across as a simple recounting of events... but this is still progress. A public offense and a public reprimand. Now no one will wonder how long Squirrel has been a "continueing problem".

It was mentioned in the thread that English was not the native language of some of the people that got angry over the thread. Sarcasm often doesn't translate well through written text, and if they truly did not speak English as a first language, can you imagine how hard it would be to "get" the joke, especially since not everyone spends as much time on the forum as some of us.

Are you suggesting that the people who got upset in that thread be punished for not getting the joke?

On more thing while we're on the subject and then I'm done with it...

It may be obvious to many that I am on Sombre's side. But here's why:

http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showt...ell#post739462

A moderator on this forum threatened to make Sombre's life a living hell.

This is so out of line that I cannot even begin to express my disgust. When I read this I was furious and intent on contacting the admins about this. However, I waited 'till I had a chance to get Sombre's take on it... he wasn't happy, but he was nowhere near as incensed as I. So, I didn't pursue it any further... but if your curious where Sombre's "lack of respect for the mods" originated, I suspect you need look no further than the above referenced post.

Annette,

There was a question as to what happened in the thread. The thread is now restored and thus I have endeavored to answer the questions with citations. I fail to see how my post is any more out of line than previous discussion on said thread, especially as it involves actual evidence rather than hearsay. Further, I fail to see how contributing to a substantial discussion is a game.

I have been generally reasonable and articulated my position, my questions, and my objections logically with respect to recent events when the situation warranted.

I will confess to participating in some punning and humor in the referenced thread. If this was against the ToS I will gladly cease with the punning.

If you would care to be more specific about how my conduct has been objectionable, then perhaps I will be able to satisfy you.

Sincerely,
Squirrelloid

P.S. Since my post is deleted, would you kindly delete all other posts in this thread discussing what occurred in the referenced thread? I can't imagine they can possibly be appropriate if mine wasn't.

I did put a big disclaimer on how much I thought Verjigorm was responsible.

Peter was directly and specifically attacking and baiting Maerlande. Even if english is somehow not his first language, that is no defense of his conduct. And if you actually read my post you'd know that. (Edit: Not that you can read it anymore apparently, although the original thread speaks for itself).

Edit Edit: I also never suggested anyone get punished.

That's kind of like trying to pickpocket someone, and then complaining when he beats you up.

Nice to see the Communions thread restored. It was a hackfest, but it deserved to be seen.
