Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening. First let me start by saying that if this thread is inappropriate please delete it or direct me to the proper resource. It was recommended by Diggy that I do this out in the open as opposed to privately so we "don't work in the shadows" The last few days I became involved in the Gun Control forum. This is a topic that is near and dear to my heart is it is to many others. I have the opinion that gun control is not the answer and many others disagree with me which is fine. My problem is, a blanket warning was issued (specifically tagging me and recommending that I not cry foul) after I made some statements (They will be quoted below). Initially I was not going to cry foul however the more debate that has gone on in the thread I can't help but feel that a specific moderator (anakinfansince1983) is not living up to the ideal that moderators are supposed to be at a higher standard. First let me start off with posts of my asking what would be considered a personal attack and why and then the clarifications of them. Gun Control Gun Control Gun Control Gun Control Gun Control Following will be the posts that I feel were personal attacks on me and the reasons why:Gun Control Labels gun advocates to be "dumb" based on a debate point. As a gun advocate this labels me personally as dumb Gun Control Personal attack on me. I stated my profession was an EMT and then used my beliefs about guns to state that I do not find human life to be valuable. Gun Control States that I personally should not be in possession of a firearm because of my worldview. Also calls me dishonest which I was not attempting to be, I was merely debating my point. Gun Control Calls me selfish Gun Control Calls me a terrible person for a worldview. Next we start the discussion that resulted in the blanket warning that only tagged me.I acknowledge based on the moderators statements and the rules clarifications that I was in the wrong Gun Control In this post I discuss how I feel that the real issue is that the schools are teaching to tests and not morals/ethics etc. Gun Control In this thread the above mentioned moderator took my previous post out of context and asserted that I made a claim that I had not(see previously linked post) Also calls me immoral because my worldview on guns (essentially if someone is breaking into my house I will defend my life and property as necessary) may result in a criminal being shot and or killed. Gun Control The post where I stepped over the line and deserved the warning I was given. Gun Control Additional the the above link Gun Control The warning after my statements above. After the initial warning some more discourse took place and then the following personal attacks were stated and a new blanket warning is issuedGun Control Calls me insane for my worldview. Gun Control Calls me a cowboy for my world view and then states I shouldn't have a gun for my world view Gun Control Openly mocks the concept of me reporting someone for what I am taking to be a personal attack. Gun Control Openly calls me a **** Gun Control Openly is happy that I am a "Cryer" Gun Control New blanket warning, no one person is mentioned. I am still the only person tagged/quoted in any warning (the first warning specifically) Gun Control I accidentally double post (not intentional) and get warned More personal attacks after the second warning Gun Control Attack on gun advocates as being "Mouth breathing" Gun Control Implies I would actually kill someone if they cut me off in traffic or got woken up. This is a character attack. Gun Control Prior to this comment he stated that meaningful change would only happen if I threw away my gun to which I replied when hell freezes over. This is a character attack because I won't conform to his world view. Gun Control The above mentioned moderator purposely attempted to bait a personal attack which from what I have read is something that moderators should be above. Gun Control Implies that I am evil due to my worldview Gun Control First moderator edit of a personal attack on a person's post Gun Control States that people who are gun advocates actually celebrate violence and death which is a character attack. Gun Control Calls "'Muricans" mentally ill. As you can imagine, there are dozens of pages of posts. I have gone through and taken the offending posts in my eyes as well as my own actions which were negative. I feel that first and foremost anakinfansince1983 is not living up to the ideals of a moderator at least in this particular discussion and secondly that the moderating of this thread has been spotty at best and purposefully selective at worst. In the interest of keeping this post from being a bible I will stop here and await any question any admin or other Moderator may have. Thank you for your consideration.
