    yet curiously certain people never get publicly addressed like others do.
    I don't think its safe to assume anything. Hasn't this forum taught us that?

    Because when you call one person out publicly for something and not another who is doing the same thing, it screams bias. If they don't want a shit storm, either address EVERYONE privately, or make a point to address specifically ALL involved and not just one side.

    It doesn't help when you have a mod who says daily i'm right and you are wrong and you are on the wrong side of history and you are an idiot and blah blah blah.

    It stinks of bias, even if not intended, to scold one person publicly, but not the other person basically doing the same thing. It screams even more bias when the other person not being addressed is a mod.
    It scream even more bias when it seems more often than not its mostly a specific group on a certain side of the political isle that doesn't align with many mods who end up getting called out.

    Read the posts? Who posts the most negative and hateful posts? And who gets targeted to play nicer?

    a right winger was banned from this thread for making a joke about me, which was just a joke, but left wingers can spew hate posts without an eyebrow raise from the mods.....

    I have no issues with people posting their opinions however stern. I only have issues when some people get targeted for creating conflicts when others don't, who are creating the same conflicts by posting the same stern opinions and degrading all who have a differing opinion.

    Some of these same people say responsibility starts at the top. No different than here. Responsibility to have a better forum starts at the top. If mods cant stop from degrading other posters with their opinions, how can they expect the average member?

    I call out both sides.

    I treat everyone as fair as I can.

    Please show me where a mod called someone an idiot. That is not acceptable.

    There is no "just joking" exception to the personal insult rule. Then everyone would claim they were just joking. If bodyman wants to call you a racist he can do it privately.

    Again, show me where mods are personally insulting people. That is not acceptable.

    Read above. NO not direct.." you are an idiot", but we all know what is being said with the first couple of posts. The last few are simply pointing out nonproductive posts that happen all day every day and gets very little scolding(yes I saw the one that finally came down yesterday I think)

    I also read the .. "so bitching about people bitching about people bitching convo"...So I know that will be the response of some.......Lets not forget there IS an origination to most convos that go south. And its pretty easy to pinpoint it in most cases.
    Tally them up. See who continues to derail and talk to them.

    Its like my boss. I had to talk to him this morning about when he is reprimanding the whole estimating section. Don't reprimand us all without specifics or it leads to confusion as to who is causing issues and who isn't. Pin point the issue and address it directly.


    Maybe a suggestion... ask the person the insult is directed at and if they want a post removed, or that person removed, then consider it?

    Anyhow. its pretty obvious some can have a louder, ruder mouth than others around here. Some can skate the line more than others around here.

    Its tough to take serious a lecture on how to keep it constructive when you read posts like the ones above, some of which are by a mod who is basically saying to the forum, if you support Trump you are an idiot. We know it doesn't say that, but we know it reads that.

    Lets not make it a bigger deal than it is. I only made the point in rebuttal to something. Not as some declaration. Ive been around long enough to see and know the trends around here...

    Ah, be specific, got it.

    There are 8000 posts in this thread, saying 'the ones above' is pretty much the opposite of the specificity you are preaching.

    Sigh...The specific posts above in MY post that I quoted. Sorry that wasn't specific enough for you.

    I'm pretty sure you are smart enough to know that when someone says the posts above, and had quoted several posts, that's being specific, but I know what I get for assuming and I take fault for not being more specific.

    I would also like to thank you for not addressing my point, but instead only trying to make a point of your own.

    That would be called deflection.

    Here's the unedited post saying we are dumb and also like minorities being disenfranchised. Which was edited pretty quickly.

    Then I post this Screenshot_2020-04-18-22-50-14.png

    Here's my response to it being a personal insult. I can go on or you can just ban me now. Who gives a shit?

    This. The guy who pinpointed me and lectured about how we can be better posts things like this. The mods okay it.

    Body then says see OB, what he is round about calling you? and Body gets banned for an insult, when he was simply pointing out Wizen was the one with the insult.

    But see Wizen posts democratic viewpoints and thus, in my opinion gets more leeway to be rude and insulting, like soooo many left wingers.

    But the moment a right winger posts back, its a reprimand. or a ban. or.... yeah...

    All's fair around here. LOL...
