If you could forward this to Lynn the Admin I would really appreciate it. Thanks.
This is referene to the “Legalize Drugs” thread in GD. First and foremost I wanna apologize for being out of line. I fully admit that I went beyond the spirit of GD and should have reserved my comments (at least worded the way they were) for the Pit. I am sorry. I am glad that others in the thread did not come down to my level and kept the thread alive and kicking. Its their thread.
I do have a few questions though.
First, you gave me an official warning in the course of the thread, but not an email to my email account. My email account is part of my profile so I tend to think that an official warning would have been sent there. Truth be told I actually avoided my email account for a coupla days thinking I was banned or something. Not that I want you to send me an official warning to my email account, but if I never read that thead again, how would I know of your warning in the thread? Is it possible for a person to tread too heavily in too many threads (getting per thread warnings) that a “thread on the camel’s back” gets a person banned and they kinda don’t know why?
Second, the fact that it came from an Admin instead of a Mod is kinda odd to me. Did a Mod ask for your opinion? Your warning (warrented as it was) was terse. Usually mods flame on the offender, at least a little. I was just wondering how you came to be aware of my tirade.
Lastly, I remember a post from a banned poster that included a message from a Mod threatening his access to the internet. The Mod threatened him with messages to his ISP to get his account closed. Ouch!! Do you really (think you) have that kind of ability?
Please consider this post in the spirit of honest query. I am simply looking for insight into the working of SDMB.
Thank you and, again, sorry 'bout being a dick.
