I am requesting that you make a determination as to if the following can go unadmonished.
The poster refers to someone making requests for admonishment to the administration. Since I am making requests to the administration,I feel that the post is referring to me or it at least could refer to me.
But I am requesting that you make a determination as if the post can remaine unadmonished and it is my understanding that the administrative board is the place to request the administration to make a determination on posts that could be deemed to violate the civility code here.
The poster writes that my requests could be disruptive to communication.
I feel accused and put down when I read that. It is not my intention to disrupt communication here, but to further communication. And a determination by the administaration as to the acceptability of a statement or not has the potential to further communication because it gives more light to the situation.
In the United States, we can write or go on-line to the Attorny General and ask if something is acceptable or not. People write to find out if what has been done to them is allowable. This is what I am accustmed to in finding out acceptability to what is written to me here. It is the administration that makes the determination, not me, and that is why I am asking for you to make a determination. You are the "Attorny General" of the forum and I feel that I am being accused by the poster of doing something wrong and I do not belive that I am doing anything wrong by asking you to make an administrative determination.
