Don't turn it into "one of those" threads. There is useful information here, IMO.

As for URL shortening, et al. -- I'd argue against it for the simple fact that we can't tell if so-and-so's shortened URL really points to a%%f###ers(dot)net. Yes, you lost formatting, and that may dilute the idea you were intending to communicate. Next time perhaps quote the content inline here, and bold the sections you want emphasized.

In addition to not starting one of "those" threads, quite frankly if you have issues with what usSpawn has said or done as his role as moderator feel free to bring it up either directly with him or through the admin channels. UnSpawn is a moderator, which is a service to the forum community and he gives his time and effort willingly for everyone's benefit. While you may not be happy with something he has done, this does not give you the right to disrespect either him or the position of moderator. I am sure he will have his own comments on this matter, but just so you know, he has earned my respect through his words and actions and comments like that won't earn yours.

This is fine. You're entitled to your own feelings and opinions.

This is NOT fine. The LQ Rules make it clear that personal attacks on others will NOT be tolerated.

A moderator provided you with a solid explanation regarding the reasoning behind the editing of your post, and you were kindly asked to get back on topic. Not only did you ignore the moderator's request, you took things even further by hurling insults at him. This is totally unacceptable, and it's the reason I'm giving you a mandatory 3-day vacation.

I'm also closing this thread, as it serves no further purpose IMNSHO (the question was asked and answered). In the future, refrain from making personal attacks. Also, keep in mind that you're free to contact any member of the Mod Team via email if you have concerns regarding moderation issues. An ongoing thread such as this isn't the proper venue for such discussions.

Thread closed.

Temporary ban issued.
