Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

I am shocked that my last post was so shocking but will say to Doug I'm sorry, because no matter what I do like the guy. I actually missed him. Doug is not fond of me but I am sorry if he thinks I meant anything evil. With Twitter being quit scary I do want this forum to be safe. Much love to Doug ...

Re: THE PAVILION ANNEX

Peggy's a hard woman to please. :) Frank, I don't know who you really are or what you really think. No one on this board does. Yet you consider it acceptable to casually invoke Doug's wife like that? You don't get to be that familiar with people when you consistently show up to the party wearing a ...

Re: Depression

The meds have arrived. At long last. Rick, what I'm on is Prozac. I've taken Celexa before and it worked just fine. If you have no use for it, I'd gladly take it off your hands. How would you like to proceed? Chuck, I've been too nauseous and sick to even get on the Pavilion much. I also must have ...

Re: Depression

Chuck, I talked to one of my best friends who is a psychiatrist and he said samples are hard to get for SSRIs. I am going off Celexa because after a month it's still making me nauseous, drowsy, and continually-needing-to-stretchy all day. This is weird because it's one of the meds least known for ha...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

Any piling on Frank is largely my fault for using him in the examples. I think it's fine to bring up examples or suggestions like avoiding certain threads but let's keep it positive and focused on the behavior. It would be interesting to me to have a list of those who have left, and I wonder many wo...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

I beg your pardon. I am not sniping. Doesn't "I beg your pardon" literally mean "I ask your forgiveness?" I think you are correct about Frank's behavior having to change. But Frank doesn't really *need* to do anything - if he does not behave, he will be shown the door. Also whil...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

My lower back is jacked up and spasms over my spinal fusion surgery site when I try to sit at the computer, or really when I try to do anything anywhere. And also when I don't move at all. So I'm gonna let you guys talk but I appreciate the replies and kind words. I'm probably going to stay out of t...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

It's been pointed out to me that I'm unclear on what I mean by policing the forums. I'm not referring to Steve Barber. What I am pointing out is there is no way he can possibly run herd on this group with the support you give him. I already see anything he does dissected and second-guessed and throw...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

That's fair, Ezra. I tried really hard to figure it out and I'm not a dumb guy, but as you say it is a silly thing to argue about. To answer your questions: Banning: I'm not troubled by having to ban Rob, not at all. It's probably one of the most justifiable acts of my life. What troubles me are the...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

No, Ezra, you are one of my poster boys for good behavior. I think you express yourself strongly without getting personal. But a key element your post was to express how troubling and unsatisfactory you find my position to be. You opened and closed with pretty strong statements to that effect. This,...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

I also have trouble with the idea of banning people. Maybe if they threaten somebody or post adverts for their local chapter of NAMBLA, but otherwise I'm just a free speech fundamentalist. Ok no offense Ezra, but I knew this was coming and I have to explain why this is not a free speech issue. So y...

Re: Be...excellent...to each other.

THE REST OF YOU 1. Avoid ad hominems. 2. Don't assign motive. 3. Don't play forums police or sass the mod. These are simple rules thousands of communities much less reasoned and well-educated than this one manage to enforce. You are smart, considered, capable people, all of you. I am tasking you to ...

Be...excellent...to each other.

Greetings! I don't post or visit here often because people are so nasty to each other here on a regular basis. I've decided maybe I don't want to be part of that any more. To that end, here are some things you all are going to stop doing here, using two of my favorite examplees. Chris Matthews is a ...

I think I cleared up the login issue. It looks like the new forums are keeping logins now - I didn't have to relog when I hit the forums today. Try clearing your cookies for harlanellison.com if you are having any issues. Let me know if the problems persist!
