    Wow, skeleton porn! I am so tempted to make yet another allusion to necrophilia.

    You just did.
    Why do we always come here?

    I guess we'll never know.

    It's like a kind of torture,

    That would make it one of those threads that needs pictures.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”
    ~ John Rogers

    As well you might because it is a strategic error.

    Because, here, cognitive dissonance is the dog that didn't bark in the night.

    It is the absence of cognitive dissonance that is crying out for an explanation.

    But if you had been sensible and kept quiet about it, no one would have noticed.

    But instead, you emblazoned it across the page - an imbroglio in the making.

    I don't think this is an appropriate comment. The issue isn't Gauntlet threads - what the people there discussed is irrelevant to the present conversation about your modbox discussions being disseminated to people on this board. One of the issues we're talking about is how it feels to have that trust breached - your private comments being made public. Your allusion to the Gauntlet threads, period, threatens to breach privacy in the same way.


    I... suppose. Yeah!

    Agreed. Why would you want to do the same thing that was done to you, bringing people into the fray that could care less about this whole affair?

    Agreed. The gauntlet threads are private and I have no means of reading them (even as a moderator) so I speak here hypothetically (and thus can not be breaching a confidence!)

    There is more than one wronged party here, and while it might illustrate the hypocrisy of a member who has done that exact same thing in a gauntlet thread complaining that the madmins shouldn't do that in their private threads, it would introduce yet more wronged parties to the list. Any more and we'll need a class action

    When getting caught up in one aspect (the complaints that someone might talk crap in private) one shouldn't lose sight of the other aspect (the breach of privacy). Especially as for many, the latter is by far the bigger issue.

    Privacy is an unconscious function of literacy - we read a book alone and in private - so naturally we guard our privacy - we even have privacy laws.

    But in the Noosphere, on the internet, any post can be copied and sent to tens of thousands at the press of a button.

    Privacy is over - we are instantly in touch with one another - we share our emotions with the whole group - and we all share the group emotion.

    This is the most important thing about the Noosphere - the emotion of the group.

    It's not that secrets aren't worth keeping - it's that they can't be kept in the Noosphere.

    IT IS not the same, gauntlet and modbox. I only feel like I should point this out because as far as I can tell^ I'm the only one who noticed. It is comparing the mayor's office to a bowling club. That is all.
