Sadly there are too many people who do not give a flying fuck about philosophy or the magazine that are just too happy to piss and shit where they will, for the fun or watching people squirm when they take the waters.
You being one of them according to you.
You are confused.
I have no trouble with my own ethics. And have no trouble complying with good practice. Far from bringing my low standard with me, I am simply following the low standard of this the lowest forum.
You also appeared to have no problem being the instigator of such practices as your posts showed from the beginning. I'm still puzzled as to what kind of ethics and morality this is?
Freedom requires some protection. If you are not willing to protect those that want to up-lift the forum, then all you are doing is protecting the idiots who want to go into a theatre and shout "Fire!"; or a better analogy those who with their new found freedom think they can shit where they like. All I want is to have the peace to enjoy the magazine and discuss it on a Forum with out the freeloading morons shitting on the pitch. You can't play the game here because the pitch is too covered in shit. You need some rules to make sure people shit in the appropriate places.
Since you appeared here you have shown little evidence of such an aim.
The real reason for your woeful letting down of the reputation of the magazine, is that you are just too damn lazy to do the work required.
You have no idea of what effort or not I put into this forum. I've explained why, so far, I leave such things as I think it gives context to the speaker.
You were happy enough to follow one of my suggestions last years in the matter of avoiding Spammers - because that actually saved you time, but it seems you are not willing to lift a damn finger in making this Forum what it could be.
This forum has been around a long time and these things go in cycles. I followed your idea through as I was unaware that such functionality existed upon the forum otherwise I'd have continued doing it the hard way.
If you spent more time on the Forum you would know what I am talking about. Go through Satyr's posts and find one that matches the aspirations of the magazine.
Despite what you think Satyr does promote what he perceives is a philosophy, mainly a metaphysics and a politics, and he does reply to questions from that position. That he includes invective and insult makes him not much different from you. Before this latest bunch arrived you were the main source of complaint upon this forum. I also note that his invective is quite specific, i.e. upon the gender forum he uses insults designed to produce the effect he hopes for, which I think is to divert others from actually questioning his thoughts and play to his 'herd'.
Having said this I have informed him that the crass insults must stop and I look forward to seeing if he ignores me, much as you did.
