I think I understand that your posts are attempts at discovery. That you are trying to better understand the civility rules. That you consider that requesting frequent determinations are the best way that you can go about doing that.
So the 'hit' 'false alarm' terminology wasn't really appropriate - and I apologise for that.
If you want to know what Dr Bob thinks about whether a post is civil or not, rather than just informing him of a post that you do consider uncivil, then why can't you do the former via email?
The admin board is supposed to be more for the latter kind of case.
The former is very time consuming... Can you see that it might take a lower priority with respect to time management? That might be why you have to wait for a response sometimes.
Maybe there could be a 'civility determinations' mailing list for people who want to participate???
For people who think there is a benefit to the process.
I'm not sure that headway is being made.
Do you really think that asking for determinations is helping you understand the civility rules any better?
