Usually I would stay out of such debates when they don't apply directly to me but since my name has come up a few times I feel I should address some aspects of this discussion.

My Mad Uncle,

I am deeply appreciative of your advice and forwarning of loosing the respect of certain citizens. But, let me say, such as in real life, my respect is earned, not freely given. If one acts the fool, they shall be treated like one accordingly. But do not think me harsh, there is a difference between foolishness and mere joking around, I, as well as most of other citizens, realize this. But as for those that do not, then they will hear about my discomfort, for I am also a part of the community and I will speak out when I feel my home is being disrespected. How does a civilization handle such problems in real life? I believe the same should be applied to an internet community, through open discussion. The members I have voiced my worries about need to learn, and earn, respect of this board. My view point, I stand by it, regardless of what others may think.

I hope I have not come across as too harsh or rude in any way, I merely wish to clarrify my stand and my reasoning in speaking out. I thank you for listening.

Well said Oro.

The very foundation of this debate is this discomfort that many are feeling.

My Dear Nephew Oro,

I hear and understand your words, and stand corrected by them. You are right in saying that such things should be brought into the open. True, I often take a different tack, but that, of course, does not make yours incorrect.

I suppose it really comes down to the fact that each situation must be approached differently, as they involve different people. While some might be put back on track with gentle guidance, or driven forth by passive resistance, some must just be purged.

Maybe I have in my desire for liberality become too lenient. There is an old saying that it takes a well-placed two-by-four to train a Labrador Retriever. Maybe the same is true for some people.

It is only because of you, MUR, that we are having more people participating here. If I may say so, your entry here may have sparked a debate in the community. Thank you.

It may be time for WGW to step into this debate, in one of the many threads.

Citizen #2439 and #2456 for being the same person and using two different board names (Arewen and GandalfThyGold). She caused a lot of trouble and restarted a closed thread. Enough, I think.

I agree. Is it possible to have an IP banned? This is getting ridiculous.

But until WGW gets here, let's sort her out.

Thank God, some one else who wants to just "sort her out."

An yes, IP banning is exactly what we need.

The Mighty Musnud, I think so, but if she doesn't have a static IP, you have to ban the whole IP block of the ISP.

Not sure actually. [] I was hoping SSA meant: Ignore her completely, and do not respond to anything she says.
If everyone does this, her threads will sink to the bottom of the forums, and not bother us anymore.

Well, something drastic needs to be done. She posted, and then deleted this:

addressed to Musnud.

I agree that if we ignore her, she may go away, but she certainly seems to be enjoying herself flooding the board.

Yeah, I saw that. How incredibly childish. I've chosen to stop responding to her. I'm sure that she'll continue flooding to some degree. But, of course, she is just trying to draw some negative attention. I, for one, refuse to give it to her.

I'm very sorry Musnud, I didn't intend to reinforce the post; but as she then deleted it I thought WGW should see a sample of her activity.

I have most of the 'gossipe' thread saved to disk, in case anyone needs it.

I have another example which has now been deleted.

In the "gossipe" thread, I pointed out a spelling mistake to her and I got a reply along the lines of -

It is a shame it was deleted before I could post it here.

Isiltári: Whether it is or not, it is not really appropriate; there are some very young members here, and it is not setting a good example.

Oh, no worries, SSA. I could care less what a disrespectful 16-yr-old delinquent posts about me. To tell the truth, I actually started to snicker when I read that (I never realized that 25 was considered old and 'farty' [] ).
