Apparently, I've kicked off 3 Atari Age individual sub-Forums.
A couple people complain about me but offer no specifics.
I looked up the "Legal" link to see if there's a chat code of conduc to see if I violated something.
I don't see a chat code of conduct.
I'm using common sense rules:
I'm only using words that would qualify on TV-G television.
I'm not hating.
I'm not bullying.
I don't shill my ideas or my websites unless they are relevant to the conversation.
I admit I'm kind of long winded. But forums are different than phone calls. Phone calls have a naturally quick ping time, were misinformation can be corrected instantly. Forums don't. You say what you want to say, and then listen to the responses and react to them.
I admit, I mainly look at the first few posts to see what the idea of the forum is and may have missed details in the middle, then jump to the end to read my responses.
If those two things are bad nettiquette, let me know, or if you want to criticize me on something else, be a little more specific.
One of the reasons why I'm long winded is because for most of my social interactions in the real world, the most complex they get is "paper or plastic?" (either bags or money) Chatting on forum is a social outreach, a call for friends. Even if I never see you guys face to face, I feel like I belong.
And now it looks increasingly less friendly for me.
I can't apologize without it being seen as hated. (And I'm wiliing to apologize when I'm wrong.) If my guess is right, I can't have a long winded post AND I can't double post 2 different, albeit related, but different ideas. There's no way I can win.
Luckily I had 2 websites stored on my email before people tried to deny me access to the website in a targeted fashion. And I already patronized one, and the other, I'm looking to patronize.
Without knowing what rule I violated, how do you expect me to be better, and friendlier?
