Where are the people who apply the law here?

Such things get me a vacation.

Yet, when others here do such things they get---nothing.

Where are the people who apply the law here?

Why does it matter if the people who apply the law are the law breakers, do you allow that to get by the other law breakers?

I fully expect this to be removed, however, please think before hand...

If you feel you are being baited, you have a right to hit the redX on any posts that you find offensive. Everyone else here has that right too. A decision will be made about any reported posts.

I only complain when you start issuing threats.

And if you are aware you are being baited, then its up to you if you take the bait or not.

LOL, I'm being bated by moderators! The hypocrisy is thick, as some of the people here.

When I look through the list of reasons why you've received vacations, none of them were for baiting. If you believe differently, then it sounds like there is a misunderstanding about the reasons why you've received vacations and I invite you to discuss specifics on the SETI Modlist where such a discussion would be more appropriate.

It may be helpful to note that it is not the job of the moderators to ensure no one gets baited, particularly in such a forum as here in Politics where such debate tactics should be expected. It is the job of the moderators to keep the discussion civil, so if you feel a particular question may make you angry, then either do not respond to it or learn to maneuver around it. I would strongly recommend against snarky responses as that only invites more baiting.

Thanks,

You imply that I am angry. I am not. The tactic is not allowed. Yet, applied by your moderators.

Posts must be 'kid friendly': they may not contain content that is obscene, hate-related, sexually explicit or suggestive.

Applied by your moderators. I was asked to post porn that I liked. I was bated.


No commercial advertisements.
N/A

No links to web sites involving sexual content, gambling, or intolerance of others.

Applied by your moderators. I was asked to post porn that I liked. I was bated.

No messages intended to annoy or antagonize other people, or to hijack a thread.

Applied by your moderators.

No messages that are deliberately hostile or insulting.

Applied by your moderators.

No abusive comments involving race, religion, nationality, gender, class or sexuality.

Applied by your moderators. And others.

Do not post pictures of graphic violence or links to images or videos containing graphic violence.

N/A

Do not posts comments related to specific moderator actions. The moderators may be contacted at seti_moderators@ssl.berkeley.edu


Your posts may be deleted if it contains material from another post which has been deleted. You should avoid including material from a post you expect will be deleted.

EVERY time I was given a vacation this was broken by another.


Team recruiting is only allowed in the Team Recruitment Forum
Additional information on moderation policy can be found here.

N/A

I do feel like this should be made public for reasons that another doesn't fall into the trap laid by your own moderators. The hypocrisy is thick, as some of the people here.

I was a Moderator at one time. I do not recall baiting or any other moderator publicly baiting anyone on the forums

It would seem you are applying your own interpretation of the rules despite what I just told you. This does seem to be a common theme amongst your communication with others, which makes the discussion nearly impossible to help you with your misunderstandings.

I do feel like this should be made public for reasons that another doesn't fall into the trap laid by your own moderators. The hypocrisy is thick, as some of the people here.


I imagine that there may be others with the same perception as yourself. I can only hope that leaving this for all to see allows others to approach the situation with more of an open mind about their own misgivings on the application of moderation policy. I do hold the belief that the only answer to bad speech is more speech.
