"There are no philosophies, only philosophers." - FN
OH arbitrarily decides what is philosophy and what is not. He has never provided an argument for his actions, seems to relish acting like a dictator. He finds it self-evident that the threads that he removes were unphilosophical. Rather than provide an argument though, he will threaten to leverage or blackmail with information he, as a mod, is privy to.
My argument is as follows: philosophy requires argumentation. We can't have a moderator of the philosophy forum who isnt willing to make an argument for his decisions.
Often I understand why he moves a post, but not infrequently I find it painful to see he snapped off another budding discussion.
His morals seem to get in the way.
He does indeed have info on me that he can use against me, so I will retire again as I said I was going to.
In the past he has posted some philosophy related thoughts. I seem top remember him also being less arbitrary in his moderating.
Would it perhaps be sensible to demand that moderators contribute?
It feels very grimey to be threatened and talked down to by a guy who shows absolutely no merit or sense of responsibility on a site Ive worked so hard to cultivate.
I guess I do have something of a Communist in me - I hate lazy powerlusty overhead.
Yes, I wear masks - Ive been writing here with different names since 2006, never with the intention to hurt the site, only to express different aspects of my psyche.
Being bullied into shutting up about someones ridiculous actions is not something I very much appreciate - so Ill just post this and leave you thinkers to it, as I said I would, I think ILP is doing very well at the moment, great rise in mentality, this is going somewhere.
(Nothing will change here moderatorwise, I expect that this is brushed off as 'attention'
-still, a philosopher must speak his heart to his friends, otherwise all is muddle.)
All weathers are wild, you know what this means?
There are innumerable seeds in the earth, innumerably many more than the reckoning of either living or dead trees- the sound of the seeds growing is deafening, and drowns out the sound of all the falling oceans of wood in the forests- but, perhaps, the sound made by the seeds can only be heard with our thoughts. - Parodites, 3rd Pentad
The strong do what they can, the weak accept what they must.
