Trolling is already against the rules. I don't see what more you want to know. The warning would obviously only be given in clearcut cases.
And of course it would be applicable to anyone. You know, with all your implications of Vienna's and my supposed bad conduct, you have yet to provide a single example.
I am not talking of trolling - I am talking of
mispresenting someone's post." How can one definitively say that something was intentional without getting inside that person's head. Any claim that it was would be subjective and lead to the accusation of immoderation.
I haven't implied, I have stated categorically and have taken it up with admin. Of course, you have the ear, more than the members of admin and are able to defend more robustly because of this. My post that was deleted 3 times was deleted without merit and is the reason it remains on this thread - although I have taken it to a new thread to ensure it's continuation since it is very relevant to the crisis in the ME, imo.
There is an underlying current of disquiet with more than a few members over the ability of the depleted moderation team (where is Agent Smith btw?) to moderate in an impartial manner on threads that mods have vigorously debated and contributed to.
One has to follow the flow of the posts carefully for it to become apparent and those that are, say there is unequal treatment.
I would be prepared to let this rest, bring the thread back on track and continue debating, albeit keeping an eye of the standard of moderation. That should be sufficient to ensure equal treatment for all.
