I'm with venam on this, and it's why I largely stay out of social websites. I know that saying: "we're all adults here" doesn't ever mean anything. And now often times I see people are actually rather young.

But why encourage a chatroom that would be similar to everyone hanging out at a restaurant/bar/someone's home -- which would require manners, social skills, and respect ... Especially when everyone involved simply get into a huge argument and react poorly?

I hope I don't make matters worse. But I feel that if he thinks the ruleset includes threats under harassment -- and more importantly the chatlog mentioned ddosing -- then threats should simply be added. Additionally, everyone appeared to be in agreement of no drug related posts?

Just making an observation.

Exactly. Why bother when the types of people who use UNIX for a hobby aren't the types who would have said social skills and manners even in real life? It's not like they'll be more "mature" on IRC.

If they're going to act like punks and imbeciles, they'll be treated like so. End of story. Maybe we should start cracking down on /g/ weirdos. They'll either leave (read: get banned) or get whipped into shape.

Complaining about misuse of power when you're on a private network that is being provided for free to you is pretty damn rich. I agree further crackdown on /g/ type antics is needed.

While indeed the misuse of power is absolutely in the domain of the people providing the service, it should not be up to any discussion. None of you would have it any other way, when providing a private service on your own.

I would like to point out one thing however: When providing as well as using such a service, the use of some manners might prevent useless escalations like this one. Of course it is still up to the provider, wheter he is polite or not, but it might actually be the wiser course of action to serve as a model member of the community.

That beeing said, not beeing a official staff member I would like to add something else: stop beeing a whiny bitch and get over it w0ne! Obviously most people here don't care about your drugpoetry. Just take it somewhere else. This is a unix community, not some site on druguse. Apologize if you want to stay, don't if you don't..
Noone here will probably miss you if you leave and most people probably won't mind if you decide to stay and play by the rules..
I seriously dislike you right you right now!
