The easy answer is no!
There is a more complex answer I can give you regarding the reasons if you require it?
"I am not a moderator either. I am just like you and everybody else here. A poster."
So I presume this is a suggestion or is one being a touch disingenuous?
To answer your inital question - I think I'd rather not know.
Like I stated here
"I am not a moderator either. I am just like you and everybody else here. A poster." I just thought it would be a good idea if we could just all have a waffle, as we have been trying to do without been invaded with bollocks.
Just a suggestion
The problem with rules such as don't mention those out side of this arena are innumerable. This is an open arena (any one can join and have the right of redress) how do we criticise or analyze an-others theories or writings without referral to that person? Does it include a ban on historical persons or just the living? only those that are published? or only those that are not published?
You see the problem?
Where is the line?
You posit simplistic parameters drawn from a extremely subjective prior assumption.
The assumption being that my and Kevin's little interchange amounted to bollocks, well it didn't to me although I can not speak for Kev.
These are the problems we will always have with intellectual censorship!
Who makes the rules?
Who is qualified?
How do we apply rules Fairly?
Isn't that an impossibility?
We can never be sure that the opinion we are endeavoring to stifle is a false opinion; and if we were sure, stifling it would be an evil still. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
The fact is that censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates, in the end, the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion. ~Henry Steele Commager
The only valid censorship of ideas is the right of people not to listen. ~Tommy Smothers
Censorship reflects society's lack of confidence in itself. It is a hallmark of an authoritarian regime. ~Potter Stewart
We have a natural right to make use of our pens as of our tongue, at our peril, risk and hazard. ~Voltaire, Dictionnaire Philosophique, 1764
The dirtiest book of all is the expurgated book. ~Walt Whitman
The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error. ~John Stuart Mill, On Liberty, 1859
Books won't stay banned. They won't burn. Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas. ~Alfred Whitney Griswold, New York Times, 24 February 1959
I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it. ~Voltaire
The populist authoritarianism that is the downside of political correctness means that anyone, sometimes it seems like everyone, can proclaim their grief and have it acknowledged. The victim culture, every sufferer grasping for their own Holocaust, ensures that anyone who feels offended can call for moderation, for dilution, and in the end, as is all too often the case, for censorship. And censorship, that by-product of fear - stemming as it does not from some positive agenda, but from the desire to escape our own terrors and superstitions by imposing them on others - must surely be resisted. ~Jonathon Green
Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one. ~Abbott Joseph Liebling, "Do You Belong in Journalism?" New Yorker, 4 May 1960
