[quote=“Ryan Paddy”]Someone feeling that they’ve been personally attacked does not make it so. Go back and read the thread with a calm mind. You’ll find some minor sarcasm, no attack. I for one won’t be asking Muppet about it, because there’s nothing to discuss, and Derek has indicated the same.
As for my response here, it’s just the facts jack. Just as this is: your report, and your laboring of it here, seem to be more about Making A Point than any complaint you could reasonably believe has merit. Why are you complaining about “bias”? Because you think some members of the community are being treated differently than others. That seems to be the real point of your complaints, but it’s just not the case. The moderator response is different because the behavior is different.
Some time back you came in for some totally-warrented (in fact long overdue) moderation for a pattern of outrageous direct abuse of forum members, and ongoing trolling. Now you seem to be arguing that minor one-off sarcasm that someone mistook for a personal attack should be similarly moderated, and if it’s not then there is “bias” because that person is being treated differently than you were? The response is different because the situation is completely different. Thankfully you stopped abusing community members long ago (really, thank you), but now it seems to be replaced with this pointed belaboring of non-issues. Take a breath, have a cup of tea, read the topic in question again, and you’ll find there’s nothing of substance to complain about in it. If we moderated minor one-off sarcasm, people would find the moderation obtrusively heavy-handed and controlling… because it would be.[/quote]
I am not prepared to discuss this with you - I no longer consider you to be a person I can reason with. I would request that you refrain from posting in this thread unless you have the power to directly answer the question posed. Which to my understanding - from what was posted earlier - you do not.
