    I'm pretty sure Marm got sexually harassed by a number of different people on separate occasions, though that never caused her to back down.

    Z would have us believe that forum users are effectively gagged by their fear of people like @andante and myself.

    I want to find out if this is true.

    If you want examples of posters who use this kind of tactic: SmileyMan, Legerdemain, Edgar, Gingko spring to mind. There are others whose handles elude me. I can't believe you haven't noticed. Then again, you're probably not a target.
    I notice their choice of words, but I probably assume different motivations behind them. Getting to know people on Vent adds to it, too.

    INTJs just seem to need everything spelled out for them before they cotton on.

    Oh.

    Never option four. Option four doesn't intimidate just frustrates you by claiming he's so smart he doesn't need to explain himself. All arguments are settled in his mind.



    THe occasion when he blasted by rep wall seemed more like away to avoid having to publicly state a weak argument rather than an attempt to intimidate.

    I don't know what repercussions came from those interactions, but she was banned for a different incident unrelated to the ones I'm thinking of.

    I've always thought that the mean-spirited comments that she got for being forthright about having been an "adult entertainer" of sorts, or about her body, should be met with less tolerance than the usual sorts of flaming.

    If you read the FAQ, no flaming or sexual harassment is tolerated. Apparently.

    True. Option 4 is not for people intimidated by Z. It's for the people who are too intimidated to vote any of the other 3. (And it just seemed funny at the time. To me, at least)

    Yeah, yall the worst kind of dictators I guess. The ideas dictators.




    I don't get it. If someone were intimidated by another Internet person (which is a pretty big "if"), they could just mash that ol' Ignore button and carry on.

    If we're talking about harassment through other channels (PMs, VMs, reps), then one could take it a step further--they could mash the Report button and carry on.
