• A friendly and periodic reminder of the rules we use for fostering high SNR and quality conversation and interaction at Stormtrack: Forum rules

    P.S. - Nothing specific happened to prompt this message! No one is in trouble, there are no flame wars in effect, nor any inappropriate conversation ongoing. This is being posted sitewide as a casual refresher.

Why moderator intervention?

MODERATOR:

3. CONDUCT. Stormtrack is not a venue for \"free speech\". Hostile, abusive, and offensive conduct is prohibited. Ridicule and intimidation of another user constitutes a serious breach of our community standards, and will often result in suspension or expulsion. When debating, be civil at all times and attack the point, not the person. Ad-hominem arguments will invariably result in a warning or suspension.

Regardless of your personal opinions towards other members, personal attacks will not be tolerated. I can't see this thread going any further, since everything that can be said probably has already been said.


Please let this down. Any and all legal matters are to remove off the Stormtrack board.[/quote]
 
I've been off the board, and seeing 11 pages here looks like we have a real hot potato. I haven't read any of this yet but a lot of it has been paraphrased in our admin forum.

HOWEVER -- Billy Griffin requested that his account be de-activated, which I've done. He will not be available to defend himself.

Jeff has made it quite clear -- any legal discussion must be taken to E-mail or to another venue. The catch-22 is we hate censoring messages, but in any legal dispute (or flame war) myself and the moderators are invariably pressured to censor and thus legally become a party to the dispute. This is where the buck stops.

This thread is now locked unless the moderators recommend re-opening it. Feel free to continue this in E-mail or via our PM facilities.
