Aaron may honestly believe that posting public information and calling on thousands of others to act on that information is within his every right... so let\'s encourage him to post his own phone number here. After all, it\'s public information that many who read these board would like to have!

If I was running a project that included LINKS TO MY PHONE NUMBER, that project is not only entitled to that information, but is given express permission to use it.

Take your delusion somewhere else.

When you over step the boundaries, you will have your account removed. I don\'t care if you have 1 million credits or 1 credit. Quite frankly I don\'t even know how many credits Aaron had and I don\'t care. I warned him and he reposted. There was no glitch in the system. If anyone posts personal information like a home phone number whether it is public information or not without permission and in bad intent we will delete your account. This type of stuff is way way way out of line particularly in the middle of the night when people are sleeping.

We have your account information backed up and may reinstate you if you show us that you will not be a burden to the project.

edit: If you have any issues with this, please feel free to email me.

The \'Warning\' I received (an HOUR or so LATER) was in EMAIL. and if there was a double post (as I am assuming) then I hardly see how the few seconds (if that, probably have the same time stamp) between the two (surely identical) posts would be enough time to step away from the conversation, load up outlook express or whatever email client I use, log in, check my email, and then notice - \'HEY ! I got an email from project staff I better be a good little boy now. \' If I was just spamming the whole damn forum, I could understand, but so far, you claim only one repetition. In any case, I hardly call the use of E-Mail as a \'warning method\' appropriate for forum moderation.

That\'s akin to the National Weather Service sending out Tornado warnings via the US Post Office. And if you can\'t see the illogic in that argument, god help us all.

If I had received -ANY- response (rather than pure deletion of messages, threads, accounts) believe me, I would not have been posting.

Oddly.. I don\'t see how I can promise you that. Your moderators seem to think that -ANY- kind of negative post on the rosetta boards is \'burden\' enough to merit deletion. How am I supposed to contribute if I cannot share my opinions, both positive and negative?

I\'d like to tell you that I have no ill intentions towards this project, but I can\'t see how that would be very honest, as I don\'t think I\'m capable of blindly kissing someones butt day after day, no matter if I disagree or not. Apparrently those are the only threads/posts that don\'t get deleted around there.

If disagreeing and sharing my opinion about it on a forum is a \'burden\' to you, then apparrently I\'m incapable of promising you that, because that\'s not what a forum is supposed to be.

However, if you\'re asking me not to post DAB\'s number and email address (even though the University of Washington has it merely 4 or 5 clicks away from the page you are looking at right now) then fine.. I will restrain myself.

Aaron,

I agree. It wasn\'t much warning. It was late and the post was so out of line that my only choice was to delete your account to prevent you from posting again. You are free to share your opinions on the forum but do not post personal information like home phone numbers without permission. We have been deleting a lot of posts due to the recent degradation of threads due to flaming and hostility towards others, etc. I\'m sorry you feel like you could not express your opinions.
