OK. It seems to me that this is something that other posters have done before successfully. Since this thread started out with an unrelated topic, and since the 3-complaint rule and suggested alternatives seem to be open to a lot of interesting debate, I thought it might be good to start a new thread. But it's your site. Sorry if I overstepped my bounds.

> > I am Poster A. Twice I have asked Administration to make a call on Poster B’s posts ** that weren’t about me or something I’d written** Twice Admin has ruled that his/her posts were civil. Would I ever again be able to question a Poster B post?

Even if A's requests ** were about something B said about A or something A had written ** (as opposed to some other question about the acceptability of what B posted)?

Actually, it seems like it to me, but once again, it's your site.

Sure. Heck, you wouldn't even have to be fair (which I've always assumed you would be)... it is your forum.

So we can post other things we'd like to (as long as they're civil), but we can't defend ourselves if we'd like to, because we don't need to? OK.
