I had to look up what you were referring to. I always tell people that before I alter anybody's posts in any way, shape, or form, I send you a PM just to let you know out of respect. Altering a post most often means there was a typo or a duplicate post or something along those lines. That is to make sure no one feels like "big brother is changing their posts". It actually appears that in this case, I sent you a PM like this back in March of 2015. I can't tell where the post was that I had to alter, but here is how I responded back then (this is essentially the same response I would give you today).
If you never saw the announcement that was posted over there for quite some time, it basically said that if you do something that disrupts the general harmony or exchange of ideas on the forums, out of an abundance of patience I will just use the forums' built in "infraction" system. Each infraction expires after 3 months (so this infraction that you are so outraged about has been expired for 6 months now). If you get 3 infractions, like BB used to get, then you get a temporary ban of just a couple of weeks. After that, the penalties get harsher. I feel like this is an abundantly forgiving system to let people know if they are doing something a little off-base without reacting too harshly. It's rarely... rarely used but when it has been used it has been extremely effective (because 9/10 it's just one of us... myself included... getting a little carried away with a thread). For the record, I'm not giving you another infraction for this outburst in hopes that your sense of reason will be more receptive to what I'm saying.General Note: I draw a huge line between ideas and people and though we can get into it over ideas, Dof87 and I have had these out before and end up always moving on to bigger and better things. That's a huge credit to Dof87 because usually he can actually move on quicker than me on these issues. The one thing that helps us both is that I feel both of us have been able to separate disagreeing with each other versus disagreeing with each other's posts (this thread included).
As a matter of transparency and respect, I contact each poster to let them know if I take ANY action against anything they post because I always hated the common practice on other sites of editing other people's work without them knowing. Now, making contact with someone is not the same thing as giving them an 'infraction' as explained in the announcement on The Free Expression Forum (it is posted there because that's the forum that really needs it the most, but it applies here as well). I sent thepackwillbeback a private message about one post he made (a simple one-liner) and he decided that, instead of responding in like-kind, that he would not respond to me privately as I did him and post a public rant regarding the site and moderation which completely ignores how passive/forgiving the current moderation team has been.
I should add that I have never bitten anyone's head off for sending me a PM and voicing a concern or complaint. The fact that you would do today precisely the same thing as you did back then without investigating why you got a warning says a lot more about how you react to criticism than how this forum is run today.
