And yet being called a hypocrite and a troll on numerous occasions, and bringing that to the attention of mods through the correct channels, results in nothing happening - no warning, no message from the mods on the topic, no removal of the offending posts.
A personal attack is a personal attack, no matter what terminology it might use.
If I called someone a pain in the arse, it would be referred to as an attack. I was suspended for two weeks a year or two back for suggesting that someone "shut up" after they had been sh*t-stirring. Now, if those things are referred to as attacks, then so are accusations of trolling and hypocrisy.
There is far more to a personal attack than calling someone an idiot, or stupid, or a bastard, or whatever words trigger the big red pen.
Accusations of trolling and hypocrisy are attacks. An attempt to undermine someone's integrity within the board or within their work outside the bubble of FECC is a personal attack, despite the fact naughty words are not used.
It is about time that this was understood, and was acted upon. There ARE trolls on this board, and we know who they are. They derail topics, they endlessly shoe-horn Felton bloody Jarvis into every conversation they possibly can in order to stir the hornet's nest and provoke those who defend Jarvis to bite back which then leads to mayhem. We even have one of them now deciding to create a "For Felton Fans Only" thread, instructing those who defend him to only talk there - despite, I might add, my frequent evidence that it is not they who bring him into the conversation. One look at the The Searcher First Thoughts thread shows just how much this had gotten out of hand.
But I will NOT stay on this board if my integrity continues to be questioned here.
It is a personal attack, it is an insult, and it is an underhand, pathetic accusation from people who should know better.
I have asked the people in question (aka: DJC) to stop - in public, on the forum. I have gone through the correct channels to get moderators to clamp down on it. I have reported it. I have included messages within the report to describe what is occurring.
Nothing is done. Absolutely sod all. Perhaps the comment is removed occasionally. That doesn't stop it happening, and no warnings are given. There is nothing to stop it happening again - either to me or to someone else.
So. Here it is in the open - make the accusations stop or I walk away. I've done it before. I'll do it again.
I am perfectly sure I can live without FECC, and I certainly will not hesitate in doing so if attacks against my work and integrity continue.
We both know that member is a hypocrite, demanding things of others that he would never do himself. He devotes a great deal of his time to causing rancor, and this will be something that never changes for him.
First of all, ignore the trolling of this topic by that member. It's almost all he does, while either consciously or otherwise missing the point.
Ignore the trolling, that person isn't even addressing the point I make, just being hysterical, as usual.
You have got to stop trolling my topic.
Unfortunately, as you delve into page 1 and beyond, you will encounter more than a little trolling from some of the usual suspects. Please do your best to ignore their posts. If I could I would delete every single one of them, as they are a waste of everyone's time.
And these are just examples aimed at myself, let alone those aimed at Cisco, Juan, MikeEdwards and others.In the course of the discussion, while avoiding the minefield of trolling done by a handful a selfish members
