They turned me into a newt!
You don't look like a newt

in that case, you should consider Set a friend. He's certainly open, without fear, and not anonymous with his pokes.
And one more thing:
Any legal case you might think of pursuing for defamation of charcter based on abuse of the nickname RexRed is a total waste of time. No self-respecting lawyer interested in seeing a payday will take on such a frivolous lawsuit. Any people who have thought they could pursue such a case have had a rude awakening. How are you going to prove in a court of law that there was any real damage done to you, your reputation or your livelihood?
It is not your legal name. End of case.
Oh, wait. Your motivation here is similar to another A2K poster boy. You are only interesting in trolling in the name of Jeeeee-sus.
Quote:I dont think that you are in a position to stand up for yourself because from what I have seen through the A2K screen name RexRed you dont know enough about who you are and what you want to make a stand for yourself. I think that if you had more inner security that we would be seeing less outer emoting, that you getting all pissy about some minor slights/ribbing is about what is missing from you and not a sign of your strength as you advertise.Doormats for Jesus anyone?

you apparently think you're interesting enough for him to follow you
Not one person came to Set's defense to say, "Set would never do that!"
I'd thought about it (I didn't think he is tagging your threads) but I just didn't want to help yet another trainwreck on a2k become the center of attention any more than I already have.
I'm gonna take my advice now, vote this thread down and move on.
I wonder what a lawyer will say to A2K's anonymous bullying... We are "unable to know" who is defacing our character? Kind of negates the whole stated purpose of the forum.
I will keep this up until democracy and change prevail and common people are no longer bullied and insulted by a2k's hateful policies.
I hope you have some money set aside for a ******* legal battle.
If you are going to make legal threats against a2k, no matter how stupid they are, your access to a2k will be permanently removed.
I am not willing to provide you a free service only to have you pitch a fit about what others say to you on it and threaten me legally for providing you use of this free service.

I pointed out in day one of the NEW A2K that the new programing was going to change the culture here, and it has. A part of this was always going to be losing a certain number of people who dont like the new A2K, but I am unclear if their energy has been replaced with new blood. Two years ago I said that A2K was dying, but now I am not as sure...We have had some really energized and thoughtful conversations here over the last year, the best that I have seen on an open forum.
I don't think all graffiti tags are motivated by the anonymity, but it's pretty clear that some are because they come from people who are not willing (or for whatever reason don't) to post the same thing under their own name. For some cases just removing the anonymity will stop it.
But yes, there is a lot more than just that to motivate it, sometimes it's just because people think it's fun or clever and that's why the change in anonymity alone will likely not eliminate graffiti tagging. The real thing I think will make a difference is semantic analysis and algorithmic devaluation of tags that are not semantically relevant to the thread.
Open? Honest? Without fear? Not a back stabber?
It is most likely Set who just posted the anonymous tag "drugfucked idiot" on my thread that is the whole reason for this discussion.
