Yeah, I hate that word. I almost always misspell it.

Semantics on your part Djordje. Pure and simple. There are borderline posts that
some may find within reason on the topic of computer chess such as the FIDE

But a joke which contains elements of different positions of sexual intercourse
cannot within anyone's reasoning be considered on the topic of computer chess.

And quite frankly, I doubt very much that you or anyone else voted Fernando and
his moderation policy in on the assumption that on topic would include this. You
may have voted him in to be lenient about it, but do you really consider it to
be on topic?

So, I answered your original question of how the charter was violated and you
respond with who defines within reason. Quite frankly, the answer to that is
that the moderators decide.

In this particular case, do you consider the joke to be on topic?

Do you consider that reposting it does not violate the charter about the
moderator actions being final?

Please answer these two questions with a simple yes or no and try not to play
the semantics game. I know it is more fun, but it doesn't resolve anything.
Either the posts were inappropriate according to the charter or they were not.
Either reposting in Spanish was inappropriate according to the charter or it was
not. Which is it?
