Here is a copy of the email I sent to the MEN management regarding MEN/ MonroeTalks : Management  Change, Terms of Service and Moderation.

RE: MonroeTalks : Management Change, Terms of Service and Moderation


Dear Monroe Evening News (MEN) Management :


I believe it is important that the MEN address and communicate the
paper's position and potential future plans for it's community forum,
MonroeTalks, with respect to :  Management Change, Terms of Service
and Moderation.

These three areas are of a significant interest and concern to the
MonroeTalks'  increasing participant user base.

I realize that the transition due to Dan Shaw's recent departure from
the MEN may still be in in its initial stages and that the decisions
and logistics regarding MonroeTalks may still be in process.

I simply  request, in an effort to foster open communication dialogue,
that once MEN has arrived at their decisions on these matters, to
post them on MonroeTalks.

Note, to serve as a focal point for this communication,  I  have
started the following thread, MEN / MonroeTalks : Management  Change,
Terms of Service and Moderation in The Getting Started and Site News
Board and placed a copy of this email.

Thank you for your consideration and time.


Respectfully,

Kazimer

I’d still like an indicator of some sort that tells everyone how many active identities are linked to each other.

And the cherry on top is if those identities could be listed in their profiles.

That would be one way of keeping the honest people honest.

The practice of allowing anyone to make up a temporary name just to leave comments on the news stories is like trusting a zero feedback seller on eBay…..not very wise.

Anonymity could still be maintained while allowing a means to discern the validity of the comments.

This is what I see when I visit:

"Sorry Frenchfry, you are banned from posting and sending personal messages on this forum.
This ban is not set to expire."

No emails, no warnings, no communication whatsoever...just that ban

May be what happened to the other libs as well.

I guess disabling the report to admin link only on the lib side was indicative of the slanted games they play.

Enjoy your spoon-fed Faux News type right-wing echo-chamber.

Edited to add:

This is the only way to answer some of the questions posed:

1) I did nothing to warrant the banishment, it's political.

2) It's the router that's blocked but considering all the nonsense right-wing games being played by those running the site...it's just not worth it to bypass the banishment block.

3) The moron stalkers from MT contemplating a visit will be considered a threat and can expect to have a bad day if they act upon those idiotic thoughts.

Feeling guilty?

Have you been trolling under another member name?

Perhaps you only play nice under the slugger name because your identity has been compromised by the gatherings so you let it all hang out using another name.

You’ve objected each time I’ve introduced the subject…..the evidence suggests my suspicions are correct.  ;)

Sorry Fry, I'll swear on my life AND my family's that I've posted ONLY under utility slug.   Never used a second name.  Ever.

There are really only a handful of posters who know me - and they're trustworthy.   Besides I'm no different 'unmasked' than I am on MT.

I'm just yankin your chain... ;D

I'd like to see a check box on the side so you can check off individual posts you don't want to read instead of the top row thing that says Mark ALL messages as read.  (if there is a place like this, someone let me know)  ???

Oh sorry, guess I shouldn't assume things. The Agora is the student newspaper at the community college.
