If he can cut the sexual harassment, intentional thread derailing, and dogged harassment of me for no good reason, I'll welcome him back with open arms next week when he can post again.  I'll even take him off ignore.

Then, in six or seven days when he's allowed to post again, we'll start all over again and have this conversation repeat in... what?  Nine, ten days?

I imagined that much. Probably not as bad as having to fire people, but close enough, I suppose.

I just meant that we're lazy, but, yeah, sure, empathy, why not.

I make a point never to eat predatory animals, so vegetarians are fair game
“Empathy” is a lie we use to justify not holding ourselves or members of our tribe accountable.  If we really want to rise above emotional appeals, then using empathy as a justification should be dismissed the same way that fear and anger are.

I think I have powers. I have only ever put 3 people on ignore. All 3 have been mod spanked.

I wonder what would happen if I put the mods on ignore?
