Thank you everyone for 'skimming' over my email...
Alex Bragin: "you learned the Alex's personality. Nothing really bad
happened, I'm sure."
I disagree, if you had read my email you would have found that
something did happen and I was no amused by it.
Alex Bragin: "it's the most free way to express yourself, but be aware
that everyone else is free to express himself too"
And that means some have to freedom to limit the freedom for others to
speak whenever it suits them for no valid reason?
Alex Bragin: "and thus I'm subjective here"
For the record, I understand the diversities of IRC... I have even on
occasion ran a channel or two myself with a great deal of people to deal
with. Stopping someone from speaking because they are insulting or not
following the rules is one thing... stopping them because you don't like
'how they structure an argument' is just pretentious.
WaxDragon: "Don't let him shake ya, he has his days like all of us"
Sure, I get that.. however this was not a problem with him 'not
agreeing'... this was an issue with his silly attempts to limit how I
can put my point across. If one day is not his day, I'll be more than
willing to talk to him about all this.
Alex Ionescu: " some of the developers got angry on why I didn't ban him
What? Another point of view, another angle on things isn't respected
nor tolerated in that channel? I was not at any point that channel
someone who could be considered a 'troll' by hammering a sentence over
and over. Every point I made had some evidence or theory that was
different. I swear you think your god Alex.
Daniel Reimer: "dont rephrase your stuff all again"
I am not rephrasing simply to say the exact same in another way. I was
rephrasing to include more information and examples to put the issue in
perspective. As to you other 'tips' on IRC, they do not apply.
