This dressing down placing undue blame on me, publicly, is unwarranted and unprofessional. I am mortified, and can scarcely believe anyone would chose to do such a thing.

I made several pleas to the rational in that thread for my position. All were ignored, passed off as "sarcasm" simply because the moderator disagreed with me. And this is not the first time the moderator has blown off my concerns! She herself made a post that associated atheists with scum (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=5733011#post5733011), which I reported because it was deeply and unnecessarily offensive to me as an atheist. LaRoza herself handled the complaint, by all appearances, and let me know that because "it was a set-up for a joke" that it was acceptable.

How is this tolerated?

P.S. Yes, I did made a single reasoned request (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=908704) once for a thread to be re-opened in OPP.


Sorry I was at a birthday part and unable to keep up in real time.

So, the whole Godwin thing is allowed in OPP, as long as it's supposed to be funny?

Okies: McCain and Palin think they have a solution for America's economic woes. The final solution

That was supposed to be funny.Ok, I was away, had not seen the entire clip and tried to show more "restraint" in closing threads.

I see this only invites abuse and sarcasm because it isn't the way you want it. Realise, every single person on this forum sees it the same way. Mods are always biased because we always do something that isn't in agreement with a single viewpoint. We are too strict if we do something you don't want, but we are in the wrong if we try to show a hands off approach if it is something you don't like.

Lets do it my way then. Thread closed, and hopefull in the near future, the OPP.

I don't know why we bother...

This is precisely the type of thing I am addressing here (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=917480).

I'm choosing to do nothing with this, but we have moved one step closer to the final elimination of OPP.

Where do I appeal this absurd decision?

Put it on the Forum Council agenda here.

Great. The wiki won't let me log in or edit that page.

I guess I get the hint.

Anyone registered for the site should be allowed to login and edit. I just tested, and I can edit the page. It is not a protected page.

I think you need a LaunchPad account to edit the wiki
