    It's not what you say, but who you are that determines infractions.

    Hmmm funny but when I chose to use the same avatar as James R mystically it disappeared. Is there anything in the rules that says avatars are unique? Did I make any offensive posts? What was the problem that caused a mod to create a new unspoken rule for the forum?

    It's not a new unspoken rule. Sciforums, indeed most of society, has long disapproved of people going out of their way to be stupid and priggish.

    It is rather remarkable how difficult this concept is for some of our members to grasp.

    Your posts are normally very carefully checked, for spelling, grammar, structure and intent, but I think you may have overlooked something here. Didn't you mean to say moderators rather than members.

    When people wish to use avatars in order to cancel the purpose of avatars, that's just stupid. Going out of one's way to be stupid is, generally, priggish.

    I assure you that I did, in fact, mean to say members. I triple-checked before I posted.

    And yes, the intentional stupidity and priggishness of our membership was a concern of mine long before I was a moderator, and, to be honest, long before you arrived in '04. You missed some really fun years around here. Unfortunately, as time went by and the site grew larger, the increasing use of intentional stupidity as an "argumentative" tactic was a contributing factor to the rise of moderators.

    Here, just for kicks ... this is the first major dust-up I recall about administrative intervention. May, 2000. Compared to the issues these days, I'm not sure what to think about it.
