in thread On Being Silenced

A quote (sorry, I did not ask permission to use this quote) from Aristotle:

There's more important stuff to worry about

I don't think I could agree with this statement more... the incident has occured and has been forgotten (or at least forgiven). Let's think about the more important stuff... like what I'm going to eat for breakfast tomorrow!

I hate doing these things (because it makes me look human), but I apologize for instantly jumping to the conclusion that it was tye who had placed the /borg on mischief. Not only because it makes tye look bad, but because it makes him look bad even if he was innocent in the act (which I am thinking is quite very possible, since there are quite a number of users who hold this great power).

So I apologize and at the same time I will make one suggestion:

if the /borg feature is destined to remain in existence, then one thing should be done: a warning, along with a reason (you know, just in case the user in question has no idea that they are acting stupid) should be given before the user is /borg'ed, except in extreme (and maybe even serious) cases.

And (since I hate looking human and showing that I have a gentle side) I will say one more thing: You people are inhuman! How can you post in this thread that has turned into a polite flamewar?!?! It sickens me! (1. the 'polite flamewar' quote came from somebody in the CB who, for the life (or lack of) of me, I cannot remember. 2. There, that sounds much more like crabby, hormone-imbalanced me!)

*walks away pretending that he is not one of these "inhuman" people who "sickens me"*

And for the humor-impaired, that last paragraph was meant as a kind of joke to lighten things up ;)
