The destruction was internal. The cause was an attempt to prove a point. The effect was an overreaction. There was never any intent to destroy the group.

Actually there was no destruction, internal or otherwise. I said attempted destruction. Prove a point? Sure one small group has "proven" that they will go to great lengths in the attempt to insure that nobody sets a rule that they disagree with (mind you they can set or break any rule they like). There was no point; only a flimsy excuse. An outside member of the group stated clearly "this forum will be dead in a month" when it wasn't he used a members username and password to come inside and gripe about or admissions standards. As if turning our callouts thread into a bitchfest (to the point that it was shut down) wasn't enough.


Which isn't my intention here; so I'll refrain from any more comments as long as you don't mention me or the issue. Good luck all.

It's looking fairly bleak inside the forum, when such civil discussants as yourself and GT have either removed themselves or been removed. But that's beside the point, and you seem to be missing the point of what they endeavored to achieve. But if you don't want to talk about it, so be it.

There was nothing they could have acheived that opening their own forum with differing standards (such as this one) wouldn't have done nicely. What they did was interfere with the internal workings of another clan. Hence the "we're right; screw off" mentality that is so prevalent in their posts (which btw was the reason that they weren't welcome in the first place.)


Isn't a common complaint (by the very same folks) against differing belief groups that they try to enforce their will on others? It's exactly what was done, and it's hypocrisy no matter how you try to paint it. I'm very well aware of what the intent was, and haven't missed the point at all. Why the interest in how bleak it is (not to mention knowledge of specific membership) if the intent was not to harm?

I'm going to have to ask both of you to take this to PMs...

You had this weird belief that some people can't behave civilly when they are asked to do it. I proved you wrong. You and the others responded by kicking out everyone who just happened to share a clan with me.

Have fun agreeing in your subforum.

So Dito asked you to behave civilly by taking this to PM's, and you ignored him and posted here instead. Ironic, no? :lol:

Sorry, john9blue, but this is still derailing the thread. I wanted people to take the argument outside of this thread; his brief apology wasn't off-topic, but your and snorri's comments just were.

Apologies to all, I was under the impression that comments like Snorri's were what we were trying to avoid, and posted a bad comment myself trying to prove a point. Now THAT is irony.

Hope this forum is up and running soon. :)

Of course, to both of you... if this is ever made.

After class today, I'll send in a second e-ticket, just to be sure.

Now I must run off to class without breakfast, because I was busy reading this. #-o Thank god I live on campus.

The only requirements are:
1) A real desire to discuss important and/or interesting issues.
2) A promise to remain civil and avoid insults and ad-hoc arguments at all times within the clan.
