Back to Finsky, cause it seems most people don't understand one vital point. I've gone to bat against dozens of complaints of him as FINSKY or FINMAN for YEARS now - usually people telling him to call his methods, my response has always been in his favor. As it is now.
That doesn't mean when I get 5 PMs in 2 days complaining about something he has said that it SHOULD NOT BE ADDRESSED! Not meaning to play BOSS around here but let's face the fact, the buck stops here and a public warning to chill a bit DOESN'T hurt anyone, maybe it even does some good.
I like Finsky's spirit and gum shun and he handles and criticism quite well. His methods work well for him and I doubt most of us could do as well as he claims with such a short season. But what gets me is that I mentioned more than Finsky in my above post, and strangely no one comes to anyone else defense. I'm often puzzled by things like that.
For the record - just fight nice or agree to disagree: hard to beat either. But I'll take credit for Finsky's new Avatar which I gave to him after he chose to change usernames last evening, I quickly changed it back and closed the door for a future name change. I also (temporarily) reduced his post count by 1000 posts - no posts were removed, only the "Number" in the posting log has been modified. After Finsky chose to be a 54 year old woman with the name Copy&paste, I felt it fitting to respond.
Future games of the sort WON'T result in child like ban-tor on either of our parts. I know Finsky has a following, there are people who enjoy him and some that strongly do not. Either way he is unique and offers a prospective that many of us can only image.
I don't want to make this post about Finsky, it has been for the last few replies (minus the Sinatra thing) and if you wish to get back on topic fine - if not, it is time to lock it up. Six pages on this may just be its threshold.
Last thought: don't anyone tell me how tough I am on Finsky, I lost an entire moderator staff 2 years ago, all of which left BECAUSE I would not ban him - Keep in mind, as a member, you rarely know all of the facts. This job isn't always a piece of cake.
