Let's take a deep breath and enjoy a week without dave's dumb, rethorical questions and insults spread around here (aka trolling, which is is a violation to our guidelines).
Referring to this: http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...postcount=4696
and this: http://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?p...&postcount=286
Poor dude seems in wrong forum looking for trouble the Trump way.
No sign of arguments, only false accusations.
Damn, I'm not even allowed to give my feelings an equivalent verbal expression here... I probably should be sued or whatever, at least grab your forks!*

(* spotted the irony?)

I take Dave's comments to be more of a running joke than an attempt to undermine the authority of Maemo Community E V (electron volts, I think?). Are you sure this is a community thing and not personal? I'm often amused, sometimes annoyed, but never actually offended or mortified by his comments . . .

He's a pest, no doubt. But even I think that's a bit of overkill. I said my words to him, requested to not be addressed by him. In exchange, I won't address him in kind. He's been added to my blocked list and I enjoy TMO again.

From what I understand, mods cannot block people. But that's my take. A week off, let's hope it is used well.

Perhaps I am missing something critical here.. that isn't visibly obvious...
But....
as long as it isn't hate or truly subversive talk..
As long as there aren't insults hurled ...
As long as a person isn't hounding others...
Well ...you guys get the idea...

I do believe in the right to speak freely one's views ...opinions.. and such...
And frankly I do not see anything worthy of blocking or blacklisting in the posts mentioned.

One thing for certain is...
If people here are being reprimanded ... silenced...blocked or blacklisted ..for speaking their mind ..their views...their feelings.. their opinions..
in a nonoffensive manner...
In "off topic" ...too...
Then perhaps his casually said statements have a grain of validity...

Frankly... I must admit ...I am alarmed at what I am seeing happen here...

Really?

Please unshackle him.
It is my understanding that the shackles are temporary. Or not?

I think there's a lot more to this though. It's all about what's not being seen but probably reported that's to blame for this situation.

Right, it isn't too obvious, depending on one's sensitivity.
But....
calling the guys running this place on a voluntary basis a regime is like calling the system rigged or Hillary crooked.
To me, that is subversive, an insult and hounding. Because he wouldn't argue or present some kind of evidence, besides complaining about bad moderation when he ignores our forum rules and Code of Conduct.

Same goes for calling the Tablet fiasko a scam because he needs someone to blame and chats that up to the world. Doing that repeatedly again, despite being warned for exactly that and even carrying it after an ex-employer with a complete new company and product personally, is not ok IMHO.

Examples:
"...scam-program"
https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...postcount=5993

"Yes, sorry. I just had to do it. ..since they announced 1000 Jolla sCam devices I think it was appropriate."
https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...postcount=5995

"original gangster jPhone ... to threat the community"
https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...postcount=5999

"scamers, tricksters and cheaters. And they have to pay the price..."
https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...postcount=6004

"Don't support scamers until they come clean"
https://talk.maemo.org/showpost.php?...postcount=6024

And so forth...
Dave's language is clever, in terms of effect, but also recognizable as such.
And he's neither considerate, respectful, collaborative, pragmatic or supports others in the community, according to our CoC.
He loves to provocate, takes this as a gamble and knowingly crosses the limits.
But I don't take his game, I'm just being strict on our self-set rules here.
Just because he and some others think he's funny here and there, we shouldn't let him get away with the rest, IMHO.

EDIT: just imagine what would happen here when he said same things about Neo900 project...

Thought I'd pass this thought along...

Is it wrong that only one company makes the game Monopoly?
