Older blog entries for recidivist (starting at number 0)

This account was initially created to weigh in on the ongoing discussions. However, my lurk time is low enough that I am quite sure my perceptions of the appropriate forms/culture are lacking. However since there are various links off the front page to new minds signing up for indoctriation/membership, someone respectable and curious/bored is bound to come across onto my page.

I would appricate guidence in how to post. I think that I can handle being sublime and inoffensive, however recent comments have led me to believe that my comments might not be welcome due to their subject matter.

To whit:

  • I have some thoughts on the topic of certification/trust/moderation/etc.
  • The most recent disscusion on this topic contains a comment by Acapnotic which decries the selfexamination going on.
      This brings up an interesting side issue: How to refer to a post in a discussion directly as I found no # tags in the src.
  • I think that the discussion is relevant and that nothing should every be blocked off as safe from examination, however FAQ's exist for a reason. Since this topic seems still fresh and open [and there is no FAQ maintainer to go to with my thoughts/questions], I'm pondering what the best way to respond is.

If someone could provide a few tips on how the community is leaning.

Maybe I should just post my comments as a diary entry, but that seems to defeat the purpose of a forum, as then users have to look in more than one place for the discussion.

  • I think that Acapnotic is more tired of this discussion, than actively discouraging discourse.
  • Any misrepresentation is not my fault, please refer to the original document in its entirety if you intend to quote from it, make intimations about its contents, or try to guess at my thoughts.
