Updated rules, and some commentary on them

Post by Ben Mothafuckin' Reilly on Mon Feb 03, 2014 10:32 pm

First topic message reminder :

The updated rules are under "About NewsFix" at the top of the page. Here's a copy of them:

"NewsFix members include veterans of Shortnews.com and the defunct NewsHabit.net, along with a large influx of members who have found us through ForumMotion and other places.

As the name implies, NewsFix is a forum for the sharing and discussion of news.

It is not a place to carry out personal quarrels with other members, nor a place to discuss other forums, nor a place for posting hate speech against minority groups.

Thus, the first guideline is that a post should, in the spirit of a news forum, be of interest to anyone looking in the category in which it's placed. It follows that replies to such posts should be of potential interest to anyone looking in.

It is accepted that discussions will become heated and that insults will be swapped between members, but lines of common decency and propriety should not be crossed:

Posts that are obviously engineered to insult or provoke other members are not acceptable (action or discipline subject to moderator discretion).

Likewise, posts that are racist, homophobic or otherwise contain hate speech are unacceptable, and those who create such posts are subject to discipline including permanent banning.

Please feel free to PM one of our admins -- Ben_Reilly, Lurker, Caution, Veya_Victaous and Irn Bru-- if you need help. Otherwise, enjoy yourself!"

As of now, everyone is subject to administrator or moderator action if they don't follow these rules. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Just to throw out an example or two of what I'm talking about:

If you were to say, "I'm a Christian and I believe homosexuality is wrong and that gay marriage shouldn't be allowed, and that we must join together to stop the gay agenda," that is your opinion, stated civilly, and it would be allowed.

Resort to hate speech, however, and you could be disciplined.

Please simply ask yourself if you're behaving like a civilized person before you post in anger. I am guilty of doing that; we're all guilty of it, and nobody expects perfection.

By who are you claiming me?

Proof that sassy is up to her old tricks again, why not ask Ben if this poster is me, as I came first here to disprove people claiming to be me by using usernames I had chosen

No, no, big misunderstanding. Puriel was posing as Didge at the time, you can see in the quotes from that thread:

Stick with it as all relationships go through rocky periods but if your relationship is strong enough love will win the day and you will find ways to get through Smile 

Seems Puriel's pulled some shenanigans here.

Ahh I wondered which of you impersonated Phildidge??

Puriel mustn't have realised if you change your name it changes all your posts but not other peoples if they quoted you while you wrote that

Not at you Didge, as you have proven to be quite nice I assumed it was one of the assholes. but didn't know which one  :\\:[:

Hang on....didge IS Puriel? Is he not?
That was his name on Flap for a while. I assumed he'd been posting as one and then changed to the other?

Am I missing something here?  scratch

Someone has posted here before I joined also using Didge, but won't own up who they are Eddie.

They think they are being clever, I joined to prove the person claiming to be me was fake, they then stopped posting to then the name Puriel turning up also.

Ah ok. When I tried to use the name Eddie I couldn't so I  joined as another ID then asked Ben to change it. Weird because he managed to change it and there's no other Eddie on the member list?

Why does sassy not understand what happened to you then?  scratch

Because she stupidly thought it was me, not to bright is sassy, even Costa had to come in and say as much on this. Like I say the same poster has been trying to pull themselves off as me and poorly to say the least, you know more than any the kind that have tried this before Eddie, they think they are being smart and only end up looking idiots!

Exactly Ben, I remember this came up on SF as the name on the post originally was Didge. Obviously it was Puriel, he must have changed it to that at a later date and didn't realise all the posts he had made in Didge's name would change. I should think Phil/Cat is pleased this has been solved, because at the time Didge thought it might be Phil/Cat, and he got accused of it.

Not accusing you of anything Didge, pointing out the person who was pretending to be you, because you were quite cross at the time.

When I tried to join here as Tess it said the name already existed so I had to put a full stop after the name. I think it might mean that the name's registered under Forumotion, on another forum..

Not in this case, veya. You can generally take whatever name you want, unless someone has taken it previously. That is what happened to me--someone claimed 'Quill' before I came (I know who)--hence, I had to settle for Original Quill.

I have never been on flap, so to me didge is Phildidge here.

That's certainly true, Victor. I have to confess that I was a little reluctant to "abbreviate" myself, though; Lord Edmund Moletrousers was a character in a children's play that I wrote years and years ago, so he's my copyright if nothing else!
