How can Ricochet users get the most out of Ricochet moderation? That’s a question many users seem to have, and [email protected] is a key part of the answer. The [email protected] account is a joint account shared by all the Ricochet moderators and administered by Ricochet super-admin, Max Ledoux. This account also ties directly into Ricochet’s […]

Re: Code of Conduct and its implementation: What first interested me in Ricochet was Peter and Rob. I knew of them both and liked them both very much. Also, I trusted their judgment and professionalism. I knew Peter from reading about him and Rob from National Review (“The Long View”). I disliked the comment sections […]

Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. Trashing Kevin Williamson

 

This post is to criticize Kevin Williamson for a recent column at National Review.

There was a previous post that was undertaken by another Ricochet member, in which he criticized Kevin Williamson for the same column. That post became to heated with emotional responses and unhelpful rhetoric. Factiousness emerged. Hopefully we can do better and consider the column on its merits at this post. The column is deserving of criticism.

I can’t find a link, but I am pretty sure that quite recently, Ricochet instructed Members that Posts were intended to be original and not just consist of a title, tags, and/or linked video or essays. Members could launch from a vid or essay, but had to actually write some conversation starter, not just post […]

In order to clarify to some issues, we’ve slightly amended the Code of Conduct. The two sections with substantive changes now read as follows (italics indicates new text): Personal attacks and ad hominem arguments against people, groups, or classes. Public figures may be exempt from this rule, provided the comment otherwise adheres to the CoC. […] Copyright violations or […]

[Editors’ Note: With the author’s permission, this post has been pinned to the Member Feed.] Have you ever been at a large party? People form clusters (unless you are a wallflower like me) that ebb and flow, break up and reform elsewhere, gather at the bar or the snack table, sneak off for some private […]

We are faced with a national election choice that none of us wished for. It’s not the sort of election we’d even wish on our enemies (well, maybe). We are down now to 3 competing camps here on Rico, and membership in these camps is far from settled (and won’t be completely settled until November […]

As you may have noticed, the Main Feed has been a little slow the past few mornings. That’s not because we didn’t find much promotable from our members: it’s because we were too busy following up on flags and Code of Conduct issues to give the Member Feed the attention it deserves. This is not […]

Dear Editors and Moderators, I’ve just finished a short spring break trip with the family. We live in a Northern VA and took a few days to explore a few Civil War sites beyond our typical day trip scope. We visited Washington & Lee University and toured the Lee Chapel and museum. We also visited […]

When I was a kid in school, I looked up to teachers. They didn’t always like me very much (my teachers seemed to prefer quiet kids to inquisitive ones), but even when I didn’t like how my teachers treated me, I understood that I had to obey them. Of course, for seven of my twelve […]

cursingFor the past few years, whenever I’ve made a pitch for new members, I’ve always included something along the lines of this:

The internet is a swamp. The “comments” on most webpages are disgusting nonsense. We’re different. We have standards:

I’ve been meaning to write a post clarifying our Code of Conduct and how we enforce it, but family life got in the way these past few weeks, and I fell behind on that. My apologies. But it’s never too late, and I thank Mama Toad for reminding me, yesterday, that this issue is still […]

I don’t wish to call out Fred, because I have no problem with him or the title of his post that was just promoted to the Main Feed (“To Hell with Your War on Drugs”), but the other day an editor redacted the comment “I’m not a [gosh-darned] dog,” leaving poor little me confused. Why […]

This is the fifteenth in the author’s Scot Harvath series, which began with The Lions of Lucerne (October 2010). In this novel, the author “goes big”, with a thriller whose global implications are soundly grounded in genuine documents of the anti-human “progressive” fringe and endorsed, at least implicitly, by programmes of the United Nations. A short […]

For newcomers around these parts gather ’round. I’ve got a little story to tell you. Once upon a time there was a brilliant young man on Ricochet named Kenneth. Man, could he write. But there were times, oh yes, there were times when he burned so brightly he hurt – hurt himself, hurt others and […]

 The problems with any set of rules occur at the boundaries of those rules. Gross infractions are easy to spot, but even the best of rules has gray areas. You just cannot anticipate all of the ways that people will creatively re-interpret laws, or find valid (or pseudo-valid) exceptions to the rules. This chicken-excrement controversy […]

I just flagged my own comment, as I couldn’t figure out how to edit or delete it. I presume there’s a timeout on edits. I took a guy to task for a comment in what I felt was a civil if gobsmacked and horrified way, and he was mortified, took it down, and I didn’t […]

Look I’m fine with extensive arguments, with long debates, with disagreements over politics, but some of us have noticed that the tone around here has gotten just nasty. I’m not naming names, but I am putting up a notice of some of the most egregious forms of the rampant rudeness. Ricochet is NOT Youtube. It […]

On the last Ricochet podcast, the idea was offered that a group of moderators be empowered to handle the tone of the conversation/s he or she would moderate. Since we have a code of conduct which can be applied, empowering moderators to apply that code of conduct might prove iffy. There are people here whom […]
