The word god usually brings up stereotypical thoughts but a deeper analysis of his material dispells the ambiguous implications of that dreaded word.

The more that I read, I came to the same conclusion. However, I still haven't figured out Vernon's definition yet. I guess I will need to dig a bit deeper into the material.

I disagree, JREF allows favorite posters to go around insulting and demeaning others and they are not banned.

I appreciate the advice but I do not trust your words to be sincere. Hopefully you can see the irony of me disagreeing with you here.

Sincere? Of course Arouet was sincere with his statement. FWIW, Arouet did say YOU. He did NOT say that this is JREF forum policy for all members. :shock:

Only if he truly meant me, as in excluding all the favorited members regarding the rules and referring only to me then it could be viewed as sincere, which in that case means that Arouet is implying that JREF is bias towards non-favorite members which i'm sure he wouldn't do would he?

You realise that I have no control over the mods at JREF right? If you don't want to follow my advice, then don't.

I don't know for fact what Arouet would or wouldn't do or imply regarding the JREF forums but I know that around here, the Mods (me) tend to be a bit more tolerant towards established members vs. brand new members. Especially when it comes to belligerent or insulting newbies. If you ask me (which I know that you didn't) Arouet's statement was based on his observations of past situations.

From my past observations of what little I have lurked over there, I would agree with Arouet's statement.

If I took your word for it, yes. (If you haven't noticed I take nothing on your word no offense meant.)

The advice is as sound as ever I was merely dispelling the notion that JREF is unbiased regarding insults and belligerence, if the notion is directed purely towards newer members that is bias also.
