Code of Conduct Violation Thread

Sorry, Rob.  I get what you were getting at, but I (and others) think it’s a bit too restrictive, and probably in need of an update. 

So in the spirit of civil disobedience, with a view toward improving The Law, have at it.  Editors, be merciful.

CoC Violation: Fundamentalist Muslims are more likely to commit acts of terrorism than any other group.  We should do something about it.

    Tuck,

    Who are you kidding?

    CoC Violation: Fundamentalist Muslims are more likely to commit acts of terrorism than any other group.  We should do something about it.

    I think the problem is you state something like the following.

    CoC Violation: Fundamentalist Muslims are  terrorists.  We should destroy them where they live.

    I tried to come up with a CoC violation, I really did.
    But gosh darn it, I cannot.

    The trouble is you were trying. Let it ooze out of you. Learn from Bob Crandall. He is a true American.

    Two years ago I stated on a thread,”F* THE POLICE.”

    It was “redacted” to simply [redacted].

    Then the Editors of Ricochet posted “Why Ricochet Matters.” So, I got to wondering if the COC still holds true ’round Here. I posted “F* THE POLICE” for public consumption to test the COC; note the number of COC violations.

     

    Slippery slope….

    We have less editors I think so it is harder to police Jimmy Carter. We need at least one staff to cover him one on one. Zone coverage is not enough. :-)

    If Yer calling for prevent defense, then I’m gonna score every time.

    With a name like Jimmy Carter, I am calling for a Neutron Bomb.  When ever you come on the site they should go to Def-Con 4.

    Just out of curiosity, Tuck…  you state that you think the CoC is a bit too restrictive.  That may be true.  But you don’t give any examples of which parts are too restrictive or how you would improve upon them.  Perhaps you should add some suggestions to the body of your post.

    LOL.  Your example is pretty darn close to current Administration policy at the moment.  I don’t think describing it accurately is enough to be an attack. :)

    Clearly the below picture is against the CoC. I will not mention it was made by Pencilvania because I don’t want to embarrass her. She gives the site a bad name. If she had a sole I would go ad hominem on her.

    Let me be clear: The so-called Code of Conduct was set up as a result of my predecessor’s administration, during which the American People were not told the truth about the kinds of people who contribute to and fund web sites that are opposed to providing health care to working Americans who are just asking for those who have been more fortunate to pay their fair share. So my plan is to address these concerns, and sound all professorial while doing so; I am clearly better at the latter than the former, because my real objective is not to address the concerns at all, but to inflame them among the good folks who work hard and just want to earn a living wage and who think that sound waves emanate from my mouth instead of from an orifice that TeaBaggers are more familiar with.

    iWc,
    Are you the Orifice of Delphi? Man, I would flag you for “delay of game” but that would just encourage you. And I thought Jimmy Carter was bad.

    Jimmy, I owe you an apology. You are not the worst pond scum in the world.

    Here’s another one: Woman are weaker than men.  This is a serious problem.

    Secret Service Requires Female Agents to Meet Lower Physical Strength Standards Than Male Agents

    “The Secret Service has been under fire for failing to stop an armed man from jumping the White House fence and running through the president’s home, and some critics have begun asking if political correctness is partly to blame for the extent of the security breach.

    “As the New York Times reported on Monday, the jumper, Omar Gonzalez, “overpower[ed] a female Secret Service agent inside the North Portico entrance” of the White House and then ran past the stairway to the presidential living quarters and into the East Room where he was finally tackled by an off-duty agent. Without explanation, the Times deleted the word “female” from the opening paragraph of its story (the Washington Post similarly edited the word “female” out of its story)….”

    I wonder what it’s like living in the fantasy land of the left?  To think that imposing what you wish for on what is will work.  And that you can ignore what is without consequence…

    Happily this bit of PC idiocy didn’t result in a dead President.  Oh darn, there I go attacking a group again…

    “But you don’t give any examples of which parts are too restrictive or how you would improve upon them.”

    I was hoping to get that conversation started, by starting with some perfectly innocuous or widely-held statements which nevertheless violate some part of the CoC.

    To reiterate, I think having the CoC is a good idea, but I think it too needs to be 2.0.

    Tuck:To reiterate, I think having the CoC is a good idea, but I think it too needs to be 2.0.

    I’m not criticizing that notion…  just wanting you to be a bit more specific.  I can’t think of anything, myself, that I would change if given the key.  But I might be sympathetic to points I haven’t thought of.
