Here's the irony of the situation...Author: SM_007 ()

I came to Tridus a while ago, telling him that I have a problem with the Hitler pictures and propoganda that Basin was posting at the time, even if it was a joke. I also told Tridus (and this is true) that there at least one other person who privately came to me, disturbed by the pictures of Hitler and the Nazi-related posts. Whether or not you agree that this stuff should be posted in this forum is irrelevent; the fact of the matter is that there are some who generally dislike that sort of thing. However, since I basically let Tridus run this forum by himself without attempting to force anything on him, knowing it'll be better in the long run, I asked him what he thought of it, and he had no problems with it at all. None. He had no problems with anything that Basin had been posting up until this point, and if it were me, things would have been different. Heck, comparing Tridus to most moderators, he's been pretty damn lenient. He's one of the more lenient moderators I can honestly say I've ever seen, whether I agree with it or not.
In return, Tridus seems to simply have a few golden rules.
Basin broke one of those rules. So have you. There is no need to ever call someone a "Nazi." A Nazi is not someone who is a harsh moderator (even though Tridus isn't even that). If you look up Nazism in a dictionary, you will find that a Nazi is described as being much worse than what you consider a harsh and tough moderator. Maybe it's just society's fault for allowing the term to be thrown about so loosely; I don't know. But what I do know is that in terms of insults, that is one of the lowest remarks you can direct at someone. At least, that's how I feel. So, as always, any actions Tridus take from this point on are supported by me, as he has been lenient enough with the antics around here. Everyone who posts in this forum needs to show respect and responsibility with how they act and what they say; and for the most part, people have. But when someone breaks these very simple and direct guidelines, I fully expect Tridus to take action and to make sure the guidelines, however loose and lenient they are, to be enforced.
So no one complain to me over ICQ about Tridus' actions. I fully support any decision he makes.
We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us.
