    Is it me, or does DIF seem overly sensitive and/or squimish when it comes to controversial topics? Is he too quick to close threads that he disagrees with personally? Is he starting to act like one of those tyrant PD mods? Or am I, Van Gully, just a dickhead who fails to see the other sides of issues, and is generally inflexible when it comes to his beliefs?

    Ok, let the voting begin. Is DIF overly sensitive or is VG a dickhead? I'll vote first: DIF is a overly sensitive titty baby, who gets all jelly fish like when a good heated deate is engaged.

    So far the vote stands: DIF - 1 vote for being an overly sensitive titty baby.

    VG - no votes for being a dickhead.

    I haven't really been here long enough to really have an informed vote, but it looks like you really are not open to other opinions as times. I think if DIF was overly sensitive, then he would close those other threads a lot sooner. I think he's more opposed to arguing in general than specific topics. Just my 2 cents...

    That is not a choice Glenn. The choices are either 1) DIF: sensitive titty baby or 2) VG: a gigantic dickhead.

    I vote neutral. Down In Flames is doing what he has to do. This may be the Non-Music forum, but it is still the Van Halen forums, a gathering place for like-minded music fans to discuss the band and their other interests. Doesn't mean that there isn't room for the occasional hot topic, just means that there are occasionally going to be arguments that no one can win - and the big "A" is one of them. I have pretty much the same beliefs as you do when it comes to that issue, VG, but as much as no one who opposes is going to get me to change my view, I don't see that no matter how bluntly you put the facts, they're not going to change their view either, and all it leads to is escalating hostilities, and this is not the place for that. So Down was right to close it because it was in danger of escalating. Unless this one gets nasty, however, I don't see him closing it.

    So, I guess you're going with VG is a dickhead vote? Come on people don't be shy. If you think one is overly sensitive or the other is a dickhead then say it. I, at least, am thick skinned.

    Glenn, you will follow proper voting procedures, or you will be asked to leave this thread.

    Gully, you remind of that kid we all knew once who would pick his nose until it bled in order to get attention. Good attention (DIF is wrong) or bad (VG is wrong), doesn't matter as long as it's attention.

    I don't know DIF, and oddly enough, for as many posts as he has, I don't have much of a complete picture of what he's like. From what I have seen, though, I will say that it isn't so much that he's overly sensitive, but he tries to be sensitive to those that ARE overly sensitive. (ok, that sentence makes sense in MY mind at least [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img])

    Also, I think he might be a little bit of a pushover when the ladies here start getting upset, because he seems to close threads when one of them starts getting worked up.

    But, he's the moderator for a reason, and how he does that job is his thing. I don't think he's anywhere NEAR being a PD-type mod.

    And Van Gully, do you REALLY think it's wise to start asking people if you're a dickhead? [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] And if someone DOES call you a dickhead, are you gonna get upset, rendering you an overly sensitive titty baby? Just askin'.

    He did what he's here for, just like the rest of us. The topic got out of hand, Van Gully.

    You obviously enjoy arguing to a fault, and don't care for people that don't agree with you. Then you turn the tables on them and play yourself up as the victim.

    Frankly, I don't know too mnay people that are classier or more patient than DIF.

    Sounds to me like you caused trouble over at the PD too, and want to blame the Mods there for it.

    I'm not going to stoop to calling you a dickhead, but you are somewhat inflexible.

    And DIF is not alone here, so don't make him your little pet pariah.

    Dude, this is just totally childish. Not the kind of matter I would expect from an intellectual.

    It would help if you could understand the difference between respectable discussion and your one-sided debates that are started only to bait people into your judgemental bullseye.

    You're a bully, plain and simple. And probably a little too smart for your own good. [img]smilies/frown.gif[/img]

    This is ridiculous. Gully, you've got no sense of proper decorum. You've got a personal gripe with DIF, and you take it out in a public manner. That's inappropriate. Grow up.

    You were needlessly insulting to another user in that other thread. You'd been warned that if you acted that way, the thread would be closed. DIF followed through on what he said he would do (read that twice). Now you bitch because of that? This is pointless.

    You never know. He's pretty touchy. I'm sure he'll respond in due time. He might IM you and tell you to stop. He likes to IM. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img]

    Ok, that's a fairly disgusting analogy. But likening me to a booger picker as a child is not a choice. Me being a dickhead is a voting choice. Or DIF being an overly sensitive titty baby.

    It's not so black and white as that. Like someone else said, if a thread looks like it could become hostile (like the abortion thread) he closes it. It's the hostility he's opposed to, not the issue itself. If you become hostile, chances are, he'll be opposed to you too.
