Yes, why let a little thing like facts get in the way of a good showtrial, right?MKSheppard wrote:I have better things to do tonight, like work on cleaning up my scans at the Archives II of various never built aircraft projects than to skim Stark's recent posting history.
You could stop the post there for all the useful content you have provided past this point. You're the one currently spearheading the movement to get him removed from the Senate, so why don't you, you know, get off your lazy ass and do the research for the charges you're leveling against him instead of choking the thread with useless rhetoric? So far the only evidence you've provided has HURT your case, and I'm getting rather tired of he said/she said rehashes of the events. The only legitimate point you've made is that he's made some spammy snarky posts, but even that is lost in the quagmire of other senators and mods doing similar acts but not facing penalties for it.Ha.
By the by, do try to keep your internet trends straight. 4Chan isn't a synonym for every internet phrase you don't like. There are plenty from here that are even more annoying in my mind (Concession Accepted, Hatfucker, etc.).
Stop trying to weasel your way out of having to provide evidence to your claims. You're in the Senate now, act like it.I know of one example which was fairly recent because I was involved in that. But I'm still not sure of the rules about using examples that you were personally involved in, and the ethics of that.
As far as the "Removal for Cause", there's no cause that's been stated other than "Some of Stark's posts were mean/spammy and I think that discounts the positive contributions he's made to the board even though I don't want to bother looking it up because it's a gut feeling." So far two mods have brought this matter to the Senate, and Shep, your statements imply that there's even more mods with axes to grind. If this is an attempt at transparency, then why not have a solid case together before moving forward? This is what amazes me. With all the people that don't like Stark or want him removed, you would have thought that by now, someone would have done the legwork of collecting the threads he's ruined, citing specific, damning examples. Instead, there's been a lot of whining about feelings and impressions. It would frankly look better if there were some honesty here, there are people that don't like Stark and think that he's detrimental to the board. If this is a conclusion supported by the mods and supermods and Mike as admin, then just get rid of him and forget this farce. If this is seriously supposed to be a thing, it's easier to deal with concrete examples of wrongdoing than vague allegations.
In short, stop wasting everyone's time and either do what you want to do or establish a proper discussion. I grow tired of this pointless bickering.
