Everyone sees the TOS and Community Guidlines when they register their screen name. I am sure a lot of people don't read them, but that is their problem. What I am wondering is what exactly do you want the admin to do? Would you rather there be no admin and have the board and possibly Burning man shut down or get sued for content that some anonymous user posts that no one deletes or makes clear that burning man is against such content. I am curious to everyone's thoughts on this matter.

so then, by this definition, camp israel is a good thing.

I guess the moral is that each and everyone of us is an individual and sometimes going by the book is not going to work. Guidelines are just that -guidelines. They can be cold and indifferent. We are people warm and fuzzy. Lets treat each other as such

<its how the bunny thought that he could treat everyone in the same way including the Lion. But it was mainly just a joke. A little humor to ease some tension?>
If you mean "going by the book" as following the rules you agreed to, then yes they will work, with the help of the admin. The rules are not cold and indifferent, they are just general rules. How can guidelinges be warm and fuzzy?
<guidelines cannot be warm and fuzzy, but it is how they're appied to the individual is how to remove its coldness and you do it by being personalized- (more below on this). This may sound dumb, but its like the difference of Andy Griffith and Barney Fife. Now don't get me wrong i'm not saying techno is barny which is way I went into the animosity part to explain the cold approach>
I am just wondering how your post had anything to do with how you think this board should be run.
<it was stated in my post if my defense didn't have an effect then its not my fault for trying to change it. As I stated orginally, it was more upset that I didn't recieve a reply to asking whether my Caution! Center Camp Group Sex Ahead was a violation as well. Stickmen can be just as provoking I guess and I didn't what to expelled from eplaya as AZ. And as techno stated the reason for not replying was that she thought I was joking. Which I do alot. So I had to come to her and case study to get a answer and not just to make a change. if a changed developed from my argument well that would be good too.
There was a time when I was first came to eplaya in the 90's, still recovering from an intentional heavy metal poisoning because I had stood up for and fought for other people rights in my community, that I didn't have much of a humor. Every post was so serious and many of you had formed your first impression of me. Some have come to see me as more then then and those my old Barny Fife ways.>
I really was hoping to hear if you had alternative ideas on how this place should be. Or at least why you seemed so suprised when the admin took action against your avatar.
<Was it the actions of an administration or of just one individual? Remember, I had thought it to be innocuous and suprised that it drew the attention. I would have post the many PM's that I did recieved to show you how many different people saw how to approach the same guidelines and all of them took a nondemeaning personalized stance>
Sure. It'll be a lie short of a baby sitting miracle. But BM is about (amoung many other things) playing with the limitations of reality.Apollonaris Zeus wrote:
