hi dr, bob,

> > are we just now civiling subject lines?
> No, that's nothing new.

("civiling"? ... ... what a goof i am ... i hadn't noticed that till now ... thanks for understanding me there ... aka 'policing')

here's where i get in trouble see ... ... ...
my (others?) expectations of fairness hinge to a large extent on consistency ... ... and a consistency which may not be humanly attainable ... ... so that perhaps simple oversights might to perceived as tolerated, if not deliberate, unfairness ...
... my case in point being:
i imagined the most immediate sanctions would be triggered by the most immediate, direct, public offense, such as subject lines ... so my expectaions were that the subject lines would be policed first and offenses there would be indicators of offenses within a post ...
(... i am sorry that this is too obvious, but i feel i have to explain myself ... )

because of these considerations, i presumed, incorrectly, that offensive terms in subject lines are not being overlooked accidently when the post's content has been cited for incivilty ... ... this is especially so when words such as "pedophile" and "hypocrite" remain in subject lines and persist in threads even after the posts have lead to pbcs and bannings ... ... i get to thinking there's some special status for subject lines ... ... which serves to undermine my (others?) confidence in the consistency of the application of the standards of civility ... or the standards themselves

... ... the challenge is that mere inadvertence can create ammo for a case of there being injustice ...

or is it just me?

> > hoover man's sentence descrepancy remains a mystery .... .... any light?
> I think it's good to be flexible sometimes...

well, that is a good thing ... ... and i for one would like to see Larry extended every possible flexibility ... ... please?

> Welcome back,

well, thank you ... ... i appreciate that ...
i still have some more qusetions but they can wait for now ...

take care,
~ jim
