Is this doxing? CowHouse (talk) 02:27, 26 January 2018 (UTC)

Doesn't seem like it. I do recognize this commenter's name, Narad (one of the regular commenters from Respectful Insolence), though I really don't think this is private information being jeopardized. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 03:04, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

You're gonna need to ban me if you're gonna pull this shit.

Calling shitty bullshit out is necessary and proper and I'm sick to death of mods going "oh ariel is just having opinions". You know it's not true. I know it's not true. You have to be able to call flagrantly dishonest nonsense what it is to have good discussions on improving the wiki.

The kind of surface level decorum you're trying to enforce with that decision is shit. It's awful. It helps no one. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 23:21, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Quick PS, I don't know what you think was "witty" banter, I am 100% serious that the things they're saying are garbage that reflect absolutely zero thought. You might have read ariels content-free replies and gone "oh ikanreed must also be doing the same thing" I don't know. But seriously, do better modding than this. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 23:27, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
The advice remains the same: even if you vehemently disagree with Ariel (and I do think Ariel presents very weak arguments), refrain from insults and visible condescension. In other words, calling out "bullshit" is necessary and proper. Insults and condescension, not so much. I've read your argument and while your first post under your unnecessarily abrasive subsection header was overall substantial and informative, my issue was with the unnecessarily vitriolic subsection ("As usual the summary version is "Ariel is dumb and/or talking out their ass") and ending your otherwise useful comment with "head up your ass"; this sort of tone inevitably leads to Ariel turning defensive and providing more bad arguments. If you deem Ariel too stubborn and unworthy of sensible debate, don't continue hurling insults like that and keep your patience.
What caused me to label the entire argument as "witty" banter would be Ariel's "Thank you for general ideological perspective; what it lacks in detail it makes up for in colorful language." and your "Man, the muffled sounds of words out of ass aren't any less fartlike when condescending, weird." which both are, frankly, juvenile. You and Ariel also had a history of such exchanges and I'm using my mod powers to stop before the section gets too big with ping-ponging; this has also happened before and this also ended with FuzzyCatPotato closing it off. It gets tiring for people to read.
If you still disagree, you can also ask other moderators how they feel about my decision, but right now, the least I can do is provide a rationale for my decision. So, please understand.
