When being bullied in the workplace, exercising humility ain’t going to stop that bullying - you do not seem to be grounded in reality, as simple moral issues and dilemmas don’t seem apparent to you, and you even outright dismissed them.. in your haste to continue whatever your agenda here is with me.

This wasn’t my day job Silhouette, but a pastime, and pastimes don’t include having to endure negativity and cray cray.. dealing with such behaviour became tiresome, and I told people about themselves.

The end.

Re-read, and don’t get back to me. This matter is none of your concern, and my characteristics keep me in good stead just fine.

Re: On Moderation

Well a man can try to do good for someone.

Thanks for sticking through it for this long.

I can only wish you the best if you insist on denying the research, the logic, and even anecdotes.

I think you need to work on your style and communication skills.. just a suggestion. I’m sure the data will come in handy at some point in time for you though..

I absolutely agree

Thanks for the good advice, I will bear it in mind for the future.

Sill, I think I see a little humility showing though. Your sincerity is the final judge.

Re: On Moderation

Silhouette,

Yes, integrity is easier for me than humility,

I think that these two can be in harmony with one another ~ like "kissing cousins" or even closer.
Without humility and the capacity to truthfully understand who we are and what our limitations are, how can we act in accord with and stand by our own values and moral code in relation to others.
"Look closely. The beautiful may be small."

"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing admiration and awe, the oftener and more steadily we reflect on them: the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."

“Whereas the beautiful is limited, the sublime is limitless, so that the mind in the presence of the sublime, attempting to imagine what it cannot, has pain in the failure but pleasure in contemplating the immensity of the attempt.”

Re: On Moderation

Humility can get you in a lot of trouble. I don't know how to quantify that but perhaps as much as or more even than pride can.

Pride will simply teach you humility. What you get is a vigilant pride, a care not to fall in hubris, a general respect for the earth, gravity, ones ancestors, and all that to which pride owes itself. But humility, when taken as a guideline, will teach you all sorts of wretched things you won't even know you're learning. First it teaches outward hypocrisy, then as a direct extension it teaches the same before oneself, and once you are obscured to yourself well enough you will learn whatever your weaknesses require to fester - anything to justify the humility.

Humility is the chisel to the pillars of pride - it serves a purpose whereas pride is the purpose, and thus the cause. Within the raw marble, cause and purpose are the same.

Re: On Moderation

Be humble the masses cry, but they do not practice humility themselves.. the valued and the value-less have been separated, here in this thread, and they disgust me much.. the lieing value-less masses.

..it’s all part of the game that the very-able play and that I’ve been dragged back into.. first by my own family back in Feb, and then secondly here on ILP.. despite my reluctance and protestations, to both.

If you breath, and are awake more hours in the day than you are asleep, then you’re in the game.. apparently, or you automatically get relegated.. by default, and I weren’t going to let that happen.

Those that play a vile game or are too mentally unwell, for my moral tastes, are removed from my radar/arena/playground/line-of-sight etc etc etc., for I refuse to be the cause of any effects and actions that such types may incur. So definitely a conflict of differences going on, mais.. c’est la vie.

Re: On Moderation

What? I hadn't even seen this.

Carleas my man, never let tyrannical power fool you into thinking that the structure on which it rests is uncorrodable.

People start getting rid of key ministers in tyranical drunkenness and next thing they know, they're China.

MagsJ, if you ever wanna start a faction for a suicidal coup, I'm with ya.

I think the coup’s already started.. without us.

I ain’t missing moderating twits and belligerent drunks.. they know who they are, because I didn’t want to moderate twits or belligerent drunks.. hence no hard feelings or resentment, on my part.

Enjoying the show of the last 2 days? That Aegean.. a funny guy huh? and what ever happened to Phon? a fine example of becoming the company you keep..?

So Phon, when was that last time you admitted to a fellow member, you had a few? Or what?

So Pedro made me out as the drunk, what does that leave you with in an "or" qualification?

Re: On Moderation

Yes, its pretty silly how much they are being allowed to destroy. Carleas has no time, and with what he doesn't moderate, porn and nazism, this place runs a risk of being taken offline. Ive talked to him about that but he said that such things cant happen in America.

Nonetheless, I volunteer for moderatorship.

Re: On Moderation

The report function is very helpful for me, I can't read everything but I do check the reports.

Is the porn just naughty words, or are people posting pictures? The latter are a problem

Nazism is a harder case. If people are defending bad ideas, that's OK, they can be wrong and the response is to argue or ignore. If people are harassing people for their perceived identity, that's not OK.

Either way, I'm happy to review anything anyone views as problematic. Fair warning that I have a pretty high tolerance for what's OK, but I'll seriously consider any reported post.
