> Harassment might be if a poster follows another poster from thread to thread
I disagree that harassment should be defined by and require that one be followed from thread to thread. I think harassment can occur along a single thread. Why wouldn't it?
"Please be sensitive"? There is no way that this suggestion would prevent a hijacking or a harassment or a pressuring by a persistent offending poster unless a block were used as a deterrent.
Handle things ourselves? There is no way that this suggestion would work because a persistent poster would not be discouraged from continuing their offending behavior. In addition, it is difficult to make such suggestions to the offending poster as they could claim that they feel accused or "put-down".
How about posting generalizations and exaggerations? Why would these things no longer be proscribed such that they be sanctioned? It appears to me that there are several proscriptions that are being overlooked or removed from consideration.
5. Posting the same material along different threads at the same time.
6. Failure to be sensitive.
7. Alluding to Nazis history and the Holocaust.
To name a few.
This is a job for a moderator to deal with. I don't want to handle it myself. It takes up too much time and energy.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
