Open question regarding poll response.
« on: May 08, 2015, 07:52:33 PM »
For the life of me I cant understand how

"WAT was Right on Morris"

is a troll/bait?

why is admitting that something said by someone that they copped heaps of crap for, is actually correct, is a troll/bait?

I'd have thought it was closer to an apology?

Please explain?
“For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways my ways,” says the Lord.
 
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are my ways higher than your ways,
And my thoughts than your thoughts."

Yahweh? or the great Clawski?

Who cares, isn't WAT on a perma ban anyway?

Maybe the mods felt it was a troll not directed at WAT but to those who oppose his points of view?

the who is not relevant......
or is it?

would it have still been a troll/bait if it was saying someone else was right?

Except, IIRC, it was started by chucky who always clashed with WAT....

I was surprised that it was considered a troll but the thread, from memory, did illicit some not too kind posts.

if that was the intent then chucky is the lex luthor of trolling

Agree Al, I also thought it was odd. The rationale given the history was that it was a bait but I reckon chuck maybe was actually recognising WATs view for once

That's last point is exactly what it was.

WAT was the first to question his role in the leadership group when it was announced.  I and a few others launched into him.

WAT was proven right and despite our past differences I recognised the fact.

In a some-what relevant tangent, I believe the poll thread should be re-opened for discussion even if for a short while. A lot of posters have been around for a long time and deserve the chance to bang things out. Could help clear a lot of stuff up

I don't mind posters taking the pee out of each other so long as its done as a friendly pee take and not as a personal pee take.

I can't even remember what went down.

But if the weight of evidence for banning someone is based 90% on

A) Perceived trolling rather than intended trolling; and
B) That a post gets reported

...then imo the system is going to get abused and confusing decisions are going to be made.

For example, someone could interpret this very post as trolling to heighten tensions on the issue. It's obviously not intended that way, but that's not to stop someone who is particularly sensitive on the issue being offended.

I'm not sure what protocols are in place (ive asked the question before) beyond this but I hope everyone was given a chance to explain their version of what actually happened.
