i was almost offended by shergald's lack of understanding, or willingness to accept another's views. that's enough from me.
"Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one's courage." - Anaïs Nin
You call that "diary policing." Most other people around here call it "quality control," an application of which was long overdue in this case."
The persistent violations of several items of the user guidelines and unconstructive and disruptive attitude, were said to have prompted the attack. I asked for documentation from past diaries and comments, and none was forthcoming, precisely because nothing like this can be substantiated. So I disagree with them and believe it was a trumped up charge.
Then I went AFK, and you flamed out and went into a tailspin with three or four increasingly incoherent and insulting screeds, which the frontpagers mercifully decided to hide from view. Presumably to protect what little good repute you have left.
But let's take it once again for heritor-prince Knud: Improper use of third-party content, undeclared crossposting and conspiracy theory peddling.
Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
You also hid the comment in which I reminded you that two years ago you complained to Jerome about IP diaries on the site. As as far as I can tell, you have put together, as you admitted, a group of frontpagers, two anyway, that decided to hijack my diary, engage in ad hominum attacks, insults (troll, Oui a pompous prick), and false assertions, like those above.
Your obvious agenda is to get IP off the frontpage. I can only suspect your motives, but we shall see if you succeed.
I hid your comments in this thread. JakeS has no means of doing so (or hiding any other comments), he is not a member of the editorial team.
The accusation that there is an agenda to get Israel-Palestine off the front page is totally baseless. You were invited before to look at another diary on the subject by the stormy present, it's not just about the ships, to see what JakeS has to say there. I suggest you do so.
This discussion must end here. Any further rancorous comments -- on either side -- will be simply deleted.
And it was Jake who kept suggesting that my diaries should go into the Salon, or be represented by a newspaper headline with link.
I also did ask you and Migeru to substantiate the false charges Jake made. He won't; he can't.
I don't think I would care to attend to his
Not his diary, the stormy present's. But if you don't want to see, keep your eyes shut.
Now let's end this.
Comment by JakeS deleted.
End of discussion.
A further comment by shergald was deleted too. Any further attempt to prolong this discussion will result in comments on this thread being closed.
