    Play nice before the warnings start arriving for CoC violation of "No Personal Attacks" Remove sentence #1 and you're fine.

    I think this is a common internet problem - without direct face to face contact, we are left with a negative impression. We can't hear your tone, see your facial demeanor, witness your body language. Internet discussions rely on forthright statements or close enough relationships to automatically know when someone is kidding. The addition of an emoticon or LOL would put the statement in context.. I appreciate your explanation and I hope in the future you will understand that the average reader is left only with the word on the screen.

    I have made a video response to @MikeyPrepper and liked his video.
    I will upload it to youtube tomorrow.
    Next time I have to ask you to "back off" and stop trying to filter/moderate me - we are going to need to speak with Melbo.

    Please do bring it up with melbo. It is the job of mods and administrators to moderate, to head off conflict and I will not allow you or anyone else to succeed in an attempt to strong arm or intimidate me. All of our mods and admins are fair and judicious in our comments. Remember that you are a "guest" in this house and do not have the right to spit on our floor.

    Ok. Let's do it then.
    I've aboot had enough of you mods trying to edit my posts for "political" BS.
    You don't even have a dispute resolution process for the "CoC" you preach aboot.
    @BTPost @ghrit @Motomom34 @Brokor @melbo
    Batphone @melbo please - i'm happy to meet on skype or whatever.

    if @MikeyPrepper was actually offended - i'll even offer an apology. I'm Canadian - we're good at that.
    If there was no "report" - i'm fully willing to take ALL you mods to task here.
    Honestly, I've seen aboot enough abuse of "power" and you need a reality check.
    This is the internet.
    @Ganado - i know u have something to say as a newer member who contributes.

    People just need to jabber with the Jabbie on Skype some time to get to know him. He's not a bad guy (Mindgrinder). We can read the CoC and take it verbatim and go around telling people to not say 'this' or 'that', and some folks don't like it. Some members push the boundaries because they are only trying to have some fun, but for others who are much older and set in their ways, fun may seem like an attack. Friends razz each other, poke and have a good time. If this is what it is, then all is well. But, no matter what, if a moderator or admin tells you something like Righthand did, it may be best to chill out, obey and take any complaints to private conversation. At the end of the day, this is only a forum, but it's a second home on the internet for many members, too. I find that if we can let our reasonable nature play an active part, there's no need for abrasive argument.

    I sense this is something deeper, pertaining to an earlier controversy, too. @Mindgrinder if you like, we could start a conversation and try to work it out. There's no need to go to battle over something like this. Our countries are at war, hell half the world is at war and more coming. We don't need another one started here.

    By and large, the mods are pretty generous with regard to adjudicating breaches of the CoC. Theirs is usually a very light touch, with counselling in pm the norm, rather than heavy handed censorship, closing or kicking. I have only had any significant issues with one mod...but almost inevitably stemming from a conflict of interests on their part. None of the other mods have seen the need to take too much issue with the content or tenor of my posts.

    Being a member here is a privilege extended by the owner, with the able support of the mods he has seen fit to appoint. Membership is not an entitlement, and does not imply any right to act like a d!ck without attracting sanction. If a member is behaving in a manner which is abusive to other members, and/or harms the reputation of the site as a place where people can peaceably share ideas and communicate with like minded people, then the transgressor does so at their own risk. Just ask one former member who felt that domestic violence was an acceptable means of running things in one's household. Personally I liked the guy (for his other posts), but understood the decision to show him the door.

    I have only had one member on long term ignore over the last couple of years, and I am seeing the wisdom of returning him to that status.

    @Mindgrinder is a good guy like Brokor said. I had this same conversation this week in a PM about having to check your 1A at the door when arriving at Survival Monkey.

    But back on topic- @MikeyPrepper unsure who the 100's are asking you but if you are announcing to co-workers and neighbors that you are a prepper that IMO is not a wise move. You are basically announcing come to my house if SHTF cause you have goods. IMO prepping needs to become how you live not a label but a way of life. Make sense?

    As for the people of Jersey, I know some. Actually one person I know is still P & M that the gov hasn't reimbursed them for the generator they bought during Sandy. The same person complained about buying batteries, having to stay in a hotel and basically being inconvenienced. People like that are not worth wasting breath on. They will never get it and if SHTF they expect to be taken care of. So by announcing your are a prepper Mikey, they will look to you to take care of them.

    No one in my world knows I prep or have stuff set aside. Some know I believe you should have a weeks worth of food set aside and one knows I have a generator but other then that I say nothing.

    Not quite, moto. Not checked, but "moderated".;)
    All Rights have limits and consequences. I COULD exercise my first amendment rights in a crowded theater by yelling " FIRE", but there will be consequences if I do so.

    Same difference IMO. I tried so hard @kellory to get Mikey's thread back on track. Do you have any input on OP's video?

    Thread derailment at its finest......
    @Mindgrinder you really should relax a hair bit..... @RightHand was just doing her job asking you to play nice....she did not even warn you, but was just trying to convey that you may be coming close to a personal attack. At my first read of the thread and your post, I thought you were being rude as well. There was no context for your comment so how is a person to read your post any other way? Come on man.... not even a silly smiley face for us to know you were just jabbing him in good nature. ;)

    Coming back strong on the staff is a lose-lose situation for everyone. It wrecks the content of the thread and the civil conversation we try to all enjoy. Ultimately, we all have to follow the rules of the road...... and there are rules here that we all agreed to...and there are staff that have to enforce those rules with a consistency that is fair to all. She was being fair... you escalated the matter.

    RH said this well and it is a very pointed note:

    I still want to know who the 100's are that Mikey is referring to because he mentioned he has children and if SHTF he could be putting his children in danger by talking to everyone about being a prepper.

    This post will stand as a warning to @Mindgrinder for personal attacks. The thread is an excellent example of how the written word can get misinterpreted and trigger unnecessary butt hurt. For now, the thread is locked to settle the waters. If anyone wants to address @MikeyPrepper's video, have at it in another thread.

    Grinder, you are prickly, but we luvs ya anyway.
