Mr. Cornelius, I wonder exactly what set you off to attack my husband; you were at least corgial before to him.
Did you just have a bad day and take him poorly that day?


First, let me say I appreciate your comments. You and your husband seem to be of one voice in this matter, and I'm sure he appreciates you rising to his defense.

However, my comments were not meant as an attack, but simply as a way of pointing out why so many members of this board find his comments offensive. Were the situation reversed, I am certain he would do the same.

And, please, Mr. Cornelius is my father. Call me Yukon. ;)



But I see that all of Rabid's posts, even the older ones, have been renamed to Guest. Could it be that admin's big, shiny boot has settled the issue for us?

There really are some real lunkheads on these forums. I will not name names...

Hey, that's mister lunkhead to you! ;)

And just for the record, I didn't have problems as much with what Rabid was saying as I did the way he was saying it.

Still, I'm glad to have the whole business behind us.

Mr. 'Death's_right_hand', you sound just like RabidFox!

Hey, wait a minute........no, it can't be.......

Aaaarrrgghhh!

Anyway, what you do with your right hand is none of my business, but I'm not as stupid as you obviously think we all are!

I've posted a suggestion for a Code of Conduct over at the "Website News" section of the Forums (at least, I think that's where it is... :? )

I hope it doesn't seem presumptuous, I encourage other people to add to it or suggest changes. Hopefully we can have some peace around here and some of the lurkers can join us for some DF discussions! Oh, and once I'm finally moved in to my new place I'll have some new pics to show people!

It's a Good Idea, the CoC.

I tried to stay out of the whole debates for the most part, didn't think it was worth my time, or even anyone elses, it just got so silly, i stoped reading many posts when they degenerated into the senseless stuff...

If RabidFox is gone, then this page is poorer and some here are no better than the early Israelis, who stoned their own prophets to death

It's kind of too bad that Rabidfox isn't still around as he would have jumped all over this. He would have done the research posting about the lexicon of the word Israeli and how it is not congruous with Israelite as should have been used here. I'm no expert but RabidFox could have cleared this up regarding the politcal and religious connotations of these two words...

Okay, Death's_Left_Hand "joined" April 22nd. Same style, same A-List of forum buddies.

I'm willing to give the "new" user every chance here.

It wouldn't even be sporting to go after the whole analogy of Rabidfox is to Truth as is to Socrates, as Death's Left Hand sees RabidFox to Prophet. That would be like making a room out of Beta set curved walls and having the Jedi Council take on a Jawa in arena combat. It's there it can be done, but why...

Theworst thing to say to an NPC, "You're not even worth the XP."

I would just give monster props though. Where Socrates accepted his fate in Plato's work and drank the hemlock resigned himself to the punishment of his peers, leaving only his teachings and no writings, RabidFox has actually been able to reincarnate himself in the form of a new user. Even the great Soh-crate-s couldn't pull that one off.

Welcome Death's Left Hand and play nice! With your minis I mean...

With that I will try to shut my mouth regarding Rabidfox/DeathLefty and really really try to recognize the NPCs for who they are and not just engage them because they are there. NPCs are Depth, Contrast, and Flavor in order to distract the characters from the main objective:

Well, it may be laughable, but I'm going to give it a shot.

The CoC specifies several things:

1. If you have a problem with a member, take it off board. If you and Mighty Zug want to fight, go ahead and do it through PMs and emails. No reason to let the rest of us know you don't like him. If he wants to reply, let him do it privately. The rest of us don't need to see this.

And, to show I'm not playing favorites, I realize that comments were made in your direction as well. I say the same thing about that -- if someone wants to post about who you are, let them do it privately.



2. As for who knows what -- neither here nor there. It really doesn't matter what anyone's credentials are. Some people have posted pics of the things their kids have done, and it's been great. If those kids themselves want to join, and participate, great. We don't care that they don't have an MBA.


3. It doesn't matter who started it, and it doesn't matter how guilty everyone else is. Each person has the responsibility to follow the CoC on their own. If you are being insulted on the board, RESPOND OFF BOARD. If people are attacking you on the board, PM them. Everyone here has the capacity to follow the CoC. The only way to keep order is to recognize that the CoC is more important than defending ourselves, winning the argument, getting the last word in, etc. Take private satisfaction in the fact that you've done the right thing.

If you think I'm being unfair in pointing this out, if you think I'm playing favorites, etc, go ahead and PM me. We can take it off board. The board is for talking about DF, and being polite and courteous. Any post that doesn't do that violates the CoC.


If you want to recommend changes to the CoC, you, like everyone else, is welcome to. I suggested it, but I'm not playing the authority figure either. I've already taken some suggestions about how to change it, it's a community thing.

It's kinda sad in a way. He had some interesting points to make, once you slogged through the rudeness and self-importance.

Still, I have to agree with you, Jedi.
