Roger Bissell Posted October 13, 2011 Share Posted October 13, 2011 [12-23-15 note: apparently some OL denizens either forgot or don't take seriously my warning from 4 years ago that this Corner will be maintained as free from personal attacks on me. I tried locking first one, then another thread, on which posters had become personally abusive to me. The attacks on me are continuing elsewhere, but that is no concern of mine. Whatever Michael wants to disallow outside of the Corners is fine with me, which I assume is still zero, since he's not clamped down on any of my abusive critics in the past.]I'm going to try an experiment. It's called a "personal-attack-free zone."It's a rather risky idea, I know. Without ad hominems and such being permitted, who would bother to read posts in my folder, let alone bother to write one!Yet, I have this crazy idea that maybe I deserve the same respect and treatment as the Brandens, Chris Sciabarra, David Kelley, and others -- at least here in my Corner.So, from now on, anyone who wants to post nasty comments about my motives, personality, etc., should feel free to expound them at length -- somewhere else!I have a twitchy "delete" finger, and I'm not afraid to use it. But I would prefer not to have to. So, if you don't like it, go moderate yourself.REB Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
