In Reply to: RE: I see the thread with my Ban Newey post is gone. What about posted by oldmkvi on March 13, 2017 at 11:28:07
Though Newey (his, ahh, newest moniker) is certainly not an ignoramus regarding music, he *is/was* a twit, and often ends up posting insults.
I've never been bugged about insult fests on AA, am definitely capable of returning fire with gusto. I do agree that insults about race/sexual preferences/religion are not ok.
Those that are disturbed by personal insults here should refrain from replying to Newey, especially if you're gonna disagree with him or belittle what he says. IMO just ignoring posts from Newey (or anybody else) is preferable to banning. I wish guys like Clark Johnsen and Romy were still here. I found AA more interesting in those days :-)
If we don't have moderation, we could get into a situation like they have in the RMCR (rec.music.classical.recordings) Google Group, where some potential posters get demoralized by the personal insults and they begin to drift away over the years. I miss Clark's posts too (Romy's, not so much - LOL!), but I think we'd all agree that personal insults don't add much to the discussion.
We do not need to sanitize the forums to the point you have the analogy of people who use anti-bacterials too often. Which is the case of the academic world today.
If you want to read Clark's views look at his FACEBOOK page. I hate FACEBOOK. Think the world of Clark. Wish he would write some articles for PF again.
Romy is the doting father of three toddlers and has no time for the ASYLUM. Or much for his own site!
