I don’t want to hear complaints about entries, or comments that predate these entries. I won’t retrospectively en-act new ‘laws’ (despite that they’ve been laws since the beginning of the site!) because I don’t have the energy or the time to dissect who might be the person in the ‘right’ in an argument. My judgement will be black and white, if you slander someone, abuse a user here, after this date you will be banned. If that person responds by slandering you, they TOO WILL BE BANNED. Thats it. Whoever is right or wrong will be irrelevant.
Thus. If you do not want to be removed from the site, do NOT talk about, abuse, annoy, aggrovate, other users. Even if they talk about you. Do not leave comments if the diarist has requested (using the ban feature) you not to. Even if they talk about you.
Someone recently called me a pacifist in a private email. Just try me, OK? Just go ahead and try me. I am a pacifist until you push my buttons too far and that small percentage have now pushed my buttons too far.
BUT, at this point, as far as I am concerned, the slate is clean. Incursions before todays date will NOT be acted upon because I can’t keep up with the patheticness of it all. But after todays date will count. Oh, and for the record, don’t think you can get away with slandering someone by dating the entry in the past, the system stores the date the entry was POSTED as well as the ‘visible’ date of the entry.
