    Heh, if you were me, you'd have a little better perspective of the situation at hand.

    This thread is a veritable oasis for me. At least it was designed to be that way. I think.

    Only with respect to Trump. At least that's the way the rules were expressed to me.

    Heh, in the last day or so, I've now reached out twice to you in private conversation. Thus far......crickets.

    And he reached out to me.

    I created the Orange Men threads from a request by Mags. I'm always looking for different and better ways to moderate the forum. It's an ever evolving playbook. Just like in real life, some things work, some things don't. This is not really working as there have been opposing parties posting in both threads.

    I'm not going to ask staff to moderate these two threads for anything beyond personal insults.

    It's the playoffs, the Blazers are in the playoffs, this is a Blazer forum. Our site traffic has gone way up, especially with the amazing run our favorite team has been on. I need staff to continue to do their excellent job on the basketball side of things. Asking them to do additional duties in just two non Blazer threads is not what is best for the site and our members.

    When the NBA playoffs are over and after our Blazers have won the 'ship we might look into this again.

    Its not that hard. Trump haters, stay the fuck out of this thread.

    Too bad they are obsessed with people not having similar views as themselves.

    That means nothing to me. He trotted out the private message route and I took him on the sentiment.

    Like I said, it's been a very exciting time for Blazer fans and busy time for staff in the Blazer part of the forum.

    I didn't meant to respond exactly that way to you. You do a great job in here. What I was referring to was that everything you said really had nothing to do with my remarks regarding reaching out to Minstrel in a private message (per his solicitation as a whole). Yet, as far as I know, he's choosing not to respond.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    I'm not entirely sure what you're bitching about here. If you actually read my posts, I said that if you want a private place to discuss QAnon-related nonsense with like-minded individuals, with no risk of being replied to, you can create private conversations for that. A public discussion forum isn't really the place, IMO, for an "oasis of no disagreeing responses."

    I didn't really feel like having a private conversation to go over the same stuff we already went over in the public thread--that has nothing to do with what I invited you to use private conversations for.

    Well, then, at least have the courtesy to respond as such in my private message to you. That would've been nice.

    Sorry, man, I just didn't see the point since you were basically just restating all the same things you told me in the thread. I figured it was best to stop engaging on the subject, leave it as "agree to disagree." I apologize if I hurt your feelings, that wasn't my intent.
