Who all has an infraction on their profile??

Me, I have 2 now for calling out some jagoff posters on here. I have done everything possible to help out alot of folks here. I have sent FREE parts to some. Stay up till 1:00 am when I have to get up at 4:00am to go to work to take pics and mini-diy displays for folks I can help. But yet there are some here who spend ALL their time in OD and fight with everybody, I call them out and bang--infraction. Recently there has been an individual on OD and DD starting crap and insulting other members here. Members that actually help others here. I took it upon myself to insult the major insulter, BAM, another infraction.

Is it just something about me? Because I'm an obvious Republican or what?

I have a one point infraction on my profile that has expired.

I got it for calling a few members who stir up trouble "nimrods".

I wonder how many points I could've have received calling them "numb nuts". I had that one in my back pocket, but didn't use it.

what? you a republican?

seriously that is not why. you just have to stop short of calling names.

it just doesn't help to talk louder. if a person is being a jerk, calling them names won't help.

helping folks if a commendable thing though.

i have no infractions that i am aware of.

Thanks Tom. If I were to call you Twalmart or Twallyworld, would you consider that insulting? Just hypothetical.

Theoretical name calling is also a violation. You're really racking them up today.

Making light of a person's name, and especially transforming it into a caricature, is an insult. Whether it's offensive depends on the state of mind of the target, but since you don't have that state of mind, you should probably just assume that it is.

I wonder if this is the goal. Is there a way to see how many people are ignoring you?

fortunately with a name like walgamuth i have little to no sensitivity to such things. i kindof enjoyed the walgamart one.

i am thinking of opening a chain of stores. with a name like that i am almost assured success!

I was under the belief that the OD was just a place to kick around some thoughts....sure there are some intense debates but I personally never see it as a reason for insulting someone...I didn't even realize there was a point system for infractions....jeez lighten up a little....

Name calling never solves anything. Everyone knows that.

Theoretical??? I said Hypothetical. And Tom and I know each other enough that we both know that "I" am not calling him anything more than friend.
