Let’s start with the basics. kayaker posted this about me in an unrelated thread:
This is in reference to a post I made in the Pit that people made fun of me for. It’s pretty vile, so I’ll not link it here.
Now, of course, when someone attacks you, your first impulse is to check and see if it’s against the rules, as, if it is and you attack back, you can wind up getting in trouble. I reported the post, asking about this. Here’s the response from twickster:
Okay, fine. Such posts are not against the rules. Doesn’t surprise me too much, but you have to be sure.
So here’s my response to said poster:
Note how I attacked the post, not the poster, and pointed out how ridiculous it was. But here’s the in thread response from twicks:
So which is it? Is it against the rules to hijack a thread with a post about a previous post, rather than about the topic at hand? Or can we do it. Is it really the case that anyone can say whatever they want about you, but if you say anything back to them, you’re the one starting the hijack and not them?
I have always responded to posts against me by doing the same thing back. If it’s not against the rules for me to be snarked on, how can it be against the rules for me to snark back?
Please fix this hypocrisy. Because, as it is, it’s hard for me to see this as anything but treating me differently than other posters.
