That's really funny. Those "guidelines" of yours are exactly the same things you keep harping to Dan about ad nauseum in your posts to him.
So are you going to offer an opinion of the guidelines I suggested?

Regarding STFU, read my post to Conrad. [snip] Was that an attempt at being disingenuous trying to make other people look bad? Unlike you, I won't tell you what to do. Jun is more than capable of doing that.
I believe that it is completely with bounds for participants in a discussion to ask each other to discuss things in a respectful way. You chose to read my request as an order --- which it was not. I believe that terms like "STFU" belong on Bullshido and similar boards, and not on AikiWeb. Expletives, whether stated explicitly or as acronyms, are not explanations. Would you use them in a discussion with Peter Goldsbury? I didn't think so.
