Diebert, we are not talking about other boards here, we are talking about the Genius Forum. It has survived. it is still up and running. yet, because of attitudes, or dislikes on the moderator part concerning certain individuals, and what they post deemed to be from a high minded person, and spamming post, contrary to the guideline,Diebert van Rhijn wrote:You are taking some effect and invent possible causes. From each ten thousand forums started around 2001-2004, 9999 have perished altogether. It's perfectly okay for this forum to be quiet after it ran its course. If anything, many people stopped visiting because at times the mindlessness and other abuse on display became a bit too much. Or they just had other things to do.jufa wrote:I truly understand your position encode, for censorship, and manner of speech to another, by an individual who does not follow the guideline of the board is frustrating. This forum use to be alive. Every post was brisking with answers, now just look for yourself and see how far and in-between post are being posted.
He was not given any restrictions though. He appears to have been running into his own limitation and sensitivities. Also he kept substantially changing his original posts after the conversation already move on. That's a bit odd.Restriction brings about animosity. Of course this is only my opinion, but is not philosophy a unrestricted venue?
And now suddenly leaving, erasing, removing accounts? I think E.D should have stayed and worked it out, something was bugging him from the start (a passive aggressive thing if you ask me). In general I didn't mind his posts at all. It was unclear what he wanted though, just thinking out loud I suppose.
banning is an issue, Example:Genius does not necessarily discourage or denounce ideas and beliefs, only the false reasoning that underpins them. This is the essence of what serious philosophical inquiry ought be. Overt attempts at spamming or disrupting the board for malicious purposes or continual gratuitous abuse of members will not be tolerated. Other than that the theme is, basically - go for it
This particular warning came because of a political post I posted. Yet, I find when David Quinn resumed posting again after a long absence, his first post was political and degrading to Kevin Solway which is outside of the guidelines: see Statement about Solway and Trump.Message subject: Board warning issued

The following is a warning which has been issued to you by an administrator or moderator of this site.
Your thread was removed as I consider it spamming. They are just proclamations and you have not shown willingness or capacity(?) to discuss your contributions. Your next attempt will be a permanent ban. Just try once to read and comment on what others are saying, no matter the topic. Come down from your thrown!
I say people stopped visiting because of your censorship and partiality.
Now you say "He [encode_decode] was not given any restrictions though. He appears to have been running into his own limitation and sensitivities. Also he kept substantially changing his original posts after the conversation already move on. That's a bit odd." but you cannot say the same for me, and who knows how many others because of your feelings towards them, and the topic they post. You are the only individual who complained about my post, respond to, and in post, and when I came and went, as well as what you deemed to be my high throne approach.
Be fair to people is all I am saying, don't allow your attitude to become self-righteous towards them. This post may get me banned, but life moves on, or run it course as you stated Diebert.
