Posted:     Post subject: I do not like posting @ PN ...

25June2013
PN is forever complaining about how/what I write -
specifically just using/writing (apparently) blacklisted words ...
I have stated (twice ... so far) to PN that
I find Quentin Tarantino's approach
to ("offensive") language appropriate/best ...
... not PN's (what I find to be "head in the sand") approach ...
I am used to posting where one would have to do something like
threaten to physically attack someone before a post would be "sanitized" ...
Trying to discuss this issue @ PN will/would be like walking on eggs ...

So...you are upset because you tried to use the following words in your forum posts, and we did not allow it:
-n i g g e r
-f a g g o t

While you may think that that it is acceptable to post racially and socially offensive language within forum posts on our network, we view it as 'trolling' and/or hate speech.

Basically, we don't appreciate your attempts to use our forum area to spew language that clearly offends very specific groups.

Shocked

applying the PN approach to PN's preceding post,
PN's preceding post is "hate speech" -
simply because certain words are in it ...
and I maintain that QT's approach is better
than PN's "head in the sand" approach ...

We get it.

You disagree with us.

We are not going to allow members to use our forums for hate speech.

While we hesitated to post the terms we posted, we felt the need to do so, to help others understand what it is you are complaining about, and what you tried to post in our forum area.

Nothing I have written is "hate speech" any more than PN's posting is/was ...
and others finding/reading my (other) posts would give them
a better understanding of my sentiments (& PN's approach)
than relying on PN's "Ministry of Truth" response(s) ...

We will have to agree to disagree on this issue.

We view your attempted use of the terms listed above as 'hate speech', and it is not allowed.

Seriously? Rolling Eyes

For someone who started a thread titled 'I don't like posting on PN', you really can't seem to stop yourself from revisiting this issue over and over.

No matter how much you complain...our rules are not going to change.

Your use of racially insensitive and overtly offensive language within our forum(s) will not be allowed.

While you may like to use language like that, we do not allow it within our sites.

It is interesting (to me) that the preceding P-N Ministry of Truth (MoT)
"pronouncement" does not "vilify" "hate speech"! Wink

Maybe with its follow-on "pronouncement" the P-N MoT
will (try to) be "back in form" Wink ...
... with a(nother) "pronouncement" as creative/original
as any work of fiction could be Wink ...
something to inspire any/all of us writers! Smile

p.s.: the P-N forums STILL are NOT sending notifications of posted forum replies!

We do not find you nearly as amusing as you seem to find yourself.

Winky faces at the end of your comments fall flat for us, as we are annoyed by your negative and inappropriate comments.

Is the point of your previous post that we didn't say enough about your previous use of 'hate speech'?

Can that really be what you wanted to do? Ask us to specifically call you out (yet again) for grossly inappropriate 'hate speech'?

If that is the case, anyone reading this thread should scroll to the top and read what all this is about.

We do not allow specific terms to be used in our network, and you are the only person to stamp their feet and cry about it in probably 4-5 years.

No matter how much sarcasm or complaining, things are not going to change.

Separately, the forum is sending out updates when thread topics are responded/replied to, as we received one to let us know about your most recent post...which is why we logged in to comment (yet again) about this issue you like to bring up over and over and over.

You should check your spam filters to see if the alert coming from our system regarding forum posts is being misplaced.

Please stop whining about our refusal to let you use the terms listed at the top of this thread.

Hopefully you can find better ways to express yourself.

Customer Service

So, PN deleted another (TransPassions) forum post of mine today ...
that I made in response to a hostile troll ...
I have no idea why ...
Language? I don't see how that could be ... unless
it was because I used a certain word that the troll used at me?
Maybe it was because I mentioned the existence of this thread?
PN has told me
Quote:
Provided members do not violate the Forum rules,
they are welcome to create threads and
respond to any forum posts they would like.

So, I dunno ...

seriously ... I dunno ...
