DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2005-03
Re: Fwd: Re: Differences between constructive anddestructivecriticism
I am working on a filter to cut off these ridiculous flame wars by
subject. It will be done this evening sometime and when it is done
I will immediately start bouncing these threads.
When people start getting bounces for postings with a particular subject
line, if you want to avoid being banned from the list, you will NOT start
a new subject line to continue the flame war. Doing so WILL get you
I am going to be crystal clear here... this filter will kill a thread
based on subject, not based on the poster, by bouncing further postings.
Making further postings will not get you banned. What will get a person's
email address banned will be if they PURPOSEFULLY continue the thread
by CHANGING THE SUBJECT.
I know very well who the cause of this current mess is, and if I thought
banning an anonymous email address would do the trick I would have done
it already. As it stands, the above methodology is the only thing I can
think of that is fair to all parties considering all the back and forth
that has gone on (some of which was my fault). The phrase "last chance"
takes on new meaning here, I guess :-(.
