Well we tried the CoC and it didn't end things. Jeff is going to appoint a moderator soon. I did suggest that he make the CoC official, however.

First of all I would like to acknowledge that Rabidfox has seemingly been on his best behavior since becomoming Rabidfox*. I think it is important to do that.

Secondly, I actually don't take personally Rabid's dialogue of "pull the plug on Zuggy" or "I'm laying down the CofC warning."

There should have been a community response to his behavior in the past, but it doesn't matter if he wants to reinvent himself as the gestapo, as long as there is dialogue, from the community, with posters that are infringing upon the standards of an open forum.

On that note, in my mind, all of Rabidfox's past abuses can not compare to the abuse of maintaining multiple posting identities and attempting to dominate the forum with dialogue that is frudulent. It destroys the very foundation of an open forum.

Rabid your opinions are valid as opinions. You don't need to make up fund managers, economic professors, pretend to log in as your wife, or continue to use your Darkside ID to offer up some kind of fallacy of majority. Your opinions are completely valid without any of this.

Your legitimacy and reputation absent any integrity could not be worse until you stop abusing the open forum by posting fraudulently with multiple IDs.

This should be of paramount concern to any fledgling CofC in a small open forum such as this.

End this charade. Come clean, for crying out loud, do you really believe that anybody actually buys into the whole doting wife and cult follower poster thing?

STOP. Be the Rabid that we can disagree with but still have to respect, because his ideas DO have legitimacy. NOT the Rabid that is known to be a duplicitous LIAR.

I understand why you created the other ID, you genuinely wanted to participate in the forum. Not a problem. Disclose the truth, as very few believe the lie, and let's move on...

So, are you going to stop then Zuggy?
You signed on to this CoC...
As a result, I am laying here the CoC warning on you, and we will see if it is worth the salt that L and others claim it is.


A CoC should never be used as it is being attempted in use as: A vehicle to silence a minority with a position that they do not want voiced.

Brvheart, and Rabidfox, and L have all been long time posters on this board. I for one find it disingenuous that while L has had to creep around on eggshells in dealing with Rabidfox's rants, Rabid is now attempting to be the police power of the CoC.

Rabid the CoC is because of you, not for you...

You don't need to correct people's spelling, tell them not to ask questions, disparage their preferences as common or hoi polloi, or attempt to represent some moral majority attempting to stamp out blasphemy. Um...it's a gaming board. I might look elsewhere than a group of folks playing with pentagrams and demons before I call some one out for an "oh my god."

The CoC can not and should not be used in an attempt to silence the very dialogue, that concerning abusive posters on the forum, that is was designed to foster.,

Well stated Zug.

My apologies in trying to PM you into letting this drop, I did warn you that in attempting to address this, it would escalate the problem did I not?

I'm hoping that a moderated status will address this.

I was hoping that our local net MPD would wind down, but apparently he's on some kind of internal dynamo that violates the 2nd law of thermodynamics...That or the wind down is going to take longer than I have the endurance for.

I've come very close to just dropping the board and letting the folks with the emotional energy to sink this much into something that is ultimatly trivial have it, but I happen to really like the product, and I like most of the folks here.

I'm here for the Resin castings and the scenery ideas, hope this board doesn't become such a chore to DF that they take it down just because one person refuses to play nice. I'm sure RF will think I mean Zug, that will be about par for the course.

There are just a few here that think they have every right to tear apart one's posting with absolutely no constructive reason in mind.

DL, I for one am really looking forward to having a moderator on the site. I know I haven't impressed you with my recent behavior as Geek Wars was moving toward syndication, but the intent behind my posts was to eliminate posting behavior, that in my mind, was exactly as you would indict. I perceived that some posts were criticical of spelling, of style, of layouts, of just plain asking a question.

It was my perception that the community was unable, or unwilling to police itself in responding to this behaviour. My posts were intended to eliminate the very concern you stated:

one person here that as soon as he signed up here was telling everyone how he knew what was right and wrong and in his expertise

Certainly, this won't be a problem going forward, as we now have a moderator with teeth and all ideas, layouts, paint schemes, business plans, will have a right to exist in an atmosphere free of recrimination.


Why would RFox think you would mean Zug, Tdaraa?


I think that Rabid* has been on his best behaviour, however no one should be speaking for him. He is eminantly capable of using his own posting voice.

Twas YOUR perception, true.
Because of this, your perception, Zug, you took my behavior way beyond where I had and became the very thing you were railing against.
How ironic.

DLH was quite accurate in some folks' perceptions of a person's motivations when they registered and immediately started waling on folks.
Now, you are quite right Zug in that we will not have to worry about such people in the future.
How very, very nice.


Why would RFox think you would mean Zug, Tdaraa?

Why particularly pick on DLH about this Zug?
Others have asked questions that have appeared on my behalf as well.
I see no need to bother the lady about any of these issues unless you are trying to pick issues with her.
Are you Zug?
That would be a cryin' shame.

Well, let us hope that this is all behind us. The CoC was an attempt to do that very thing, for this board to police itself. While it may have appeared that the efforts may have been one sided there was a lot of effort OFF this list to get all sides to cease and desist. With the presense of a moderator now hopefully we won't have to endure any more rounds of Geek wars. I really don't want to see this list get shut down. Please let bygones be bygones and let all have a fresh start.

Sorry about the "huh".
I just did not connect the dots at all; too long away in other lands like the land of miners, loggers and spud boys currently.
I just did not go back far enough in the line to even get the joke.
Sorry, going too fast with insufficient curiosity to actually be thorough.
That would have gotten me zapped at work.
Joke's on me!
