Go up one level in this thread

I think the real problem is that some are going to color decisions based on the
full scope of information available.  To imagine that we can simply ignore all
knowlege of someone who is operating as a complete whinging twit elsewhere and
make a rational decision based purely on logic and data available at this forum
is not realistic for some, myself included.  If I think someone is a bad egg and
they act up here, I would simply be more inclined to take harsh action.  Human
nature (at least *my* human nature) will probably get in the way of a stoic

Even if we think we can completely detach ourselves, is it really honest to
think so?  On the one hand, I greatly prize the value of freeness of speach.  On
the other hand, this entire forum was invented simply because r.g.c.c. was being
used as an outhouse.  The job of the moderator is to prevent ccc from becoming
an outhouse, so that some new solution does not have to be invented.

Brains being what they are, and mine being a bit defective, renders completely
detached decision makeing a very difficult process.  Others may be able to do
so, based (perhaps) on their personalities.
