Wayne was referring to sterotyping when it is in any way involving or inclusive of posters here.
Like I said barb ....the rules are in black and white.
No one has changed anything.
The new "rules" that Wayne quoted do not appear anywhere. Not even close. And, if his new rule about whether or not an action used to be legal were a true rule for the entire board, you would not allow members to attack those who are in favor of such things as ALF actions. Obviously, that was just a ploy to to protect that crime which we cannot name. A very similar ploy was used to attack Paul Watson for something he hadn't even done!
Really - never mind. You will continue to treat different members with differing rules and standards. Its well know that that is the true hallmark of this board and its not likely to change any time soon.
Where as you wish to continue to argue an issue whereas you do not even feel rules apply to yourself is hypocritical. As is your attacking members of this board directly or by means of sterotyping, which is a clear violation of this board. I suggest that if you wish to complain about anything you should at the very least not be in a position of hypocracy.
Again, I am sorry that opposing views and questions about your position on issues upsets you but those are not violations. I suggest you focus on the topics and and steer away from making them personal.
I might add the factor of the inclusion of the members of the board in a group being known. In the case of ALF there are no members who claim to be an active member of this unofficial group, but there are a few who have claimed active participation in animal fighting when it was still legal. Thus, statements concerning legal actions of the ALF, would not apply to any known board member, but statements concerning the legal actions of animal fighters would apply to known board members.
If one were to say animal rehabbers were some low life term, that would be an attack on members of the board who are followign legal actions. If the same statement were made against the illegal actions
of some or all rehabbers it would not be an attack on the person, but of the action and would be neither a personal attack or sterotype.
A disagreement is not an attack, in any case.
