i enjoy someone posting things contrary to my posts. I enjoyed reading the posts about the technical specifications of the networks T-Mobile and Sprint operate. But when you get insulting crap thrown in the mix- regardless if it is directed at me- it should be deleted, not responded to. And if my view causes you to exercise your power as a mod, fine. I mod over at MyMovies, and I spend plenty of time on forums. Just think about what you do when you validate someone's snarky immature off-topic post.
So you feel that's it's ok to respond to what you think is a snarky post with an even snarkier post of your own?
That makes no sense.
We're not going to sanitize the site. As I said, if he had posted something specifically to, or about you, and it went overboard, then you would have been right to complain, to US. But responding doesn't help your argument at all.
I get people insulting me directly more often that I would like, but i'm all grown up. It doesn't bother me unless they use profane language, or refuse to stop after being asked to.
People need to let some steam off sometimes. Don't get too upset about ti.
