It's true that my English is not the best … but I can not understand why Rory McMreadie's words are considered harassment …?

I remember clearly that not long ago … there were people who expressed much stronger comments towards me and Bill answered me: "It's just his opinion …"

So … what are the boundaries or limits of this sin worthy of the Dawhouse? … someone would be kind enough to explain it to me? ….

Thanks in advance.

Because some snowflake grassed him up Armand :-)

It's OK to call people Snowflakes apparently … because our Dear Leader leads by example :-)

Dear Dwindling Gravitas.

Remember that the Gods are above the laws of men and may do that which is criminal to men.

That was harassment? To the point someone complained? Really? I didn't think it even rose to the level of mild ribbing.

Precisely TG … they should take a peek at Science on TMP Plus …

I'm too scared (scarred?) to even participate :-)

Harassment covers a wide range of behaviours of an offensive nature. It is commonly understood as behaviour intended to disturb or upset, and it is characteristically repetitive. In the legal sense, it is intentional behaviour which is found threatening or disturbing.

n. the act of systematic and/or continued unwanted and annoying actions of one party or a group, including threats and demands. The purposes may vary, including racial prejudice, personal malice, an attempt to force someone to quit a job or grant sexual favors, apply illegal pressure to collect a bill, or merely gain sadistic pleasure from making someone fearful or anxious.

No idea what was removed, but removing it broke the front page.

We all need thicker skin these days. Me included.

Harassment is a pattern of persecution, intimidation, pressure, force, coercion or hassle, especially if it occurs in multiple topics.

Ah!… thanks Bill… so… you show only one sentence of Rory but he insist many other times…

Now I understand…

Calling you a snowflake and me "stupid" in one thread with the perpetrator (the Editor) not getting the DH just shows how flexible justice is on TMP.
You wouldn't want the rules enforced 100% with no flexibility now. Would you?
In this case, The Editor is being flexible with his definition of harassment.

To be honest though, the Age of Sail board is starting to rival the old Napoleonics board for naughtiness, although nowhere close to being in the same league as UM.

A DHing for harassment should provide links to all the evidence that constitutes the allegation. A single quote/link leads to everyone wondering what the culprit did wrong?

IMO being called a 'snowflake' isn't what I call harassment, I have been called way worse.

deephorse08 Sep 2017 11:03 a.m. PST

And you'd be correct. Being insulted just the once isn't harassment.
