Rules / Re: update: provisional rules PLEASE READ
« Last post by carl on July 10, 2020, 03:06:31 AM »
No. I'd rather us duke it out publicly, but since this is not my site (neither is it spice's) and since the whole world has gone freakin mad by becoming fascists by declaring free speech to be the world's biggest devil, I will just find elsewhere to bitch about historical revisionists.
Look, I would probably find some fun in such a discussion too, if it wouldn't be for the fact that some people tend to rely on what I would call the emotional way to argue, opposed to the good way of remaining factual and logical and accepting whatever facts they are confronted it, after checking on them and finding out about how they are really only factual and true.
Sadly, instead they will reside to aggressivelly attacking or doubting the factual proof represented to them, nowhere would they be able to consider any argument given to them even, simply for the reason it came from a person they despise for their personal thoughts.
This destroys any attempt to keep a discussion civil.
It is actual the opposite of how men argue.
It is more like the usual way of how womens banter proceeds I have to say.
And this is not the place for it either, with us being men of science, or at least, thats what we should strive for.

As much as I value the people and their intellect on here, and enjoy talking with them about some events that are not chemistry related, it is just not right to do it in public, this became now apparent, even obvious to me after that has occured.
And any attempt of us discussing this out in public, well, it would inevitably end up in personal attacks, because our own points of view differ so much that it is not possible for us two to agree on a single point outside of the world of chemistry.
Not even if we wanted to I guess.

No harm meant, you still are mostly ok to me.
I doubt that is the same for you, you do now probably feel an irregular hatred to my person, no?
Which would confirm what I said above.

But if you just try to agree with this measure to keep the peace and the discussions civil, I would be happy.
We as a community have so many times proven that when we together are pulling on the same string, we are able to develope stuff driven by an exponentially increased ingenuity.
Lets not ruin this with things that don't matter in chemistry at all, as that stuff has the potential to break our covalent bonding to each other(the whole community I mean).

Is that in turn alright and acceptable for you?
You know, I try to keep peace on this site too while I try to remain quite polite with this and helpful, and I think(and have been told) I do a good job at this.
Maybe sometimes I can't help it on some topics that aren't chemistry related, just like everyone else thats human, but I know of this weakness of mine.
I still try to keep any discussion on those topics civil, even if its hard to do so, especially if provoked.
Some others don't even try to attempt this though.
So its better if we keep discussions like this out of here, because this site is not meant for things like this at all.

It can still happen, especially if there is a good community spirit like we were able to develope over the last years.
People tend to think "hey they are my friends, why don't ask them what to think about this or that topic?".
And that is in general alright, no problem.
But as soon as it touches one or both of the problematic issues of politics or religion, it will result into something bad.
Might take a while, but sooner or later it seems to be inevitable, I know now.
And exactly for this case, becoming just too casual with the community and trying to talk about those things, is why we have decided its better to keep these things out with this provisional rule.
We have no benefits at all from allowing that, but in turn we cause splittings in our community, people loosing respect to each other solely based on their opinions, and judging each other on that, and not their knowledge, experience and skills.
Do we really need that? Not at all!

Look, crybaby, I never said it was my site.

But I am a moderator, as such, it's one of my jobs to keep the peace.

You pm'd me with your thoughts (and your threats, whiny as they were) and went and pouted and sulked for 2 weeks, now
you are back stirring shit up again.

Why don't you kick rocks?

So I assume this includes being a Nazi apologist and blaming WW2 on Poles and Jews? Or do these rules not apply to moderators?
This applies to everyone of course.
It has no business here and we decided that together, in consequence of the dispute you're alluding to.

I'll keep my opinions to myself and only share my knowledge and experience, and in turn I expect the same in regard of personal attacks like this.
Is this alright and acceptable for you?

Then that's the place to go to discuss politics, not here.

I guess I do not know which bar you go to.
The ones in my part of the world do not have any limits about what is talked about.
Some problems do arise from differing views but??

This place should be like a bar - no religion, no politics.
