The amount of (more or less friendly) efforts I made to have them respected and the very few attempts to enforce them have brought me nothing but polemical/sarcastycal replies, presumably funny attempts to workaround them, and various other smart-ass like behaviour, all leading to griefing me as I have often been depicted as an arrogant, hypocritical and despotic Admin, which is unlike my natural attitude.
As long as this comes from new members it's allright, I can bear this burden with no problems, when it comes from people that have been members and contributors of the Board since it's very beginning or soon after it, it's a clear sign that the Rules or the way they are applied by yours truly do not reflect the expectations or the opinions of the community.
I find as fundamentally pointless to do a "social service" against the wishes of the community it should serve.
As my last act as Admin of the board I have moved to a "reserved" area the last topic where people had a very good occasion to show this behaviour.
Nuno and/or the Admins that will be elected/nominated after me will be able to restore it to where it was originally posted:
as well as "unpin" the present thread, temporarily made "sticky".
Enjoy your new - free from control Board.
BTW: The Rules are still there, the only difference is that you won't have any more jaclaz trying to have them respected.
Rather obviously the final message is :
We apologize for the inconveniences.
P.S.: Should it not be clear enough, this topic is not meant as a discussion topic, it's merely a communication from your ex-Admin, nothing more, nothing less.
P.P.S: Should it not be clear enough, the above means that jaclaz is not anymore an Admin of the Board, again nothing more, nothing less.
P.P.P.S.: For reasons that probably only someone with a Vulcan heritage would understand, and that however I won't reveal, I feel compelled to leave also the Board as "advanced member" jaclaz, as this leaves attached to the account a number of privileges that not only I don't need, but that I also do not want. My new nick is Wonko The Sane.
