in reply to RE: Deep Linkage
in thread Deep Linkage

Well put spectre. I guess the point I was trying to make was more on the self-image (or too much of it) than the legal aspects of deep linking some monk's image. But yes, I guess that was part of what came up in the discussion in the chatter-box. Therefor, not only should people take the usage of their image more lightly, but they should respect the way the internet works!

I can see this topic branching in several different directions, la a good OLD Slashdot thread: warez vs. free software, Napster and MP3's, comercial deep linkage without credit, and even more personal aspects of what happened to me... I mean, I could be highly offended by being associated with "Distorted Youth" (WTF do those guys do anyway???) but I'm not! I found it amusing. Even if they HAD, let say, altered my image, or refered to my pic as being an example of how ugly one can be, I still wouldn't be offended.

I have come to learn that its better to laugh with people, than laugh at people. Even when you're the one being made fun of. Life's too short to get all pissed and prissy with small issues like these.

    It is far beyond your right or place, to tell another person what they may, or may not be offended by. I will be offended by anything that offends me, and it is ridiculous to suggest that your way is automatically superior. Is it wrong of me to remove my image in protest of something I dislike?

      Updated for clarity's sake, so that Aigh can understand what I'm trying to say, updates are underlined:

      ... and it is ridiculous to suggest that your way is automatically superior...

      Well, I wasn't talking about you, Aigh, in that specific node, I was speaking on my behalf, about my beliefs. But, hey, if you, Aigh, feel the need to discuss this, why not? I'm open to diverse ideas. You, Aigh, know for a fact that I will backdown when I see a point. I've done it in the chatterbox in previous conversations between us, you and I. If you, Aigh, can make a valid statement, I will agree. What I disagree with is the automatically superior crap, I mean, if you (anyone) don't have a point (and therefor think that you (anyone) are right), then why make one at all? If its not intended as humor, I can see no use in arguing when you, Aigh, think someone else has a superior way. Does that make any sense, or did it sound like bable?

      ... Is it wrong of me to remove my image in protest of something I dislike? ...

      Oh, do you, Aigh, mean like removing your posts when you, Aigh, see people are voting you, Aigh, down? Yes I think it's wrong. I've been wondering if you'd do that here too if people start voting you, Aigh, down. (and I beleive they have started already)

        Are you sure that's all you changed?

        >If you, Aigh, can make a valid statement, I will agree

        So you are claiming, quite clearly, that my statements are invalid. Interesting that you feel qualified to ack as judge over a debate you start. But considering that you started it only with insults, it is not entirely surprising.

        >But, hey, if you, Aigh, feel the need to discuss this, why not?

        Well, lets not confuse things here. You are the one wanting to make personal attacks, and I am left defending myself. Don't try to suggest I want this exchange.

        >if you (anyone) don't have a point (and therefor think that you (anyone) are right), then why make one at all? If its not intended as humor, I can see no use in arguing when you, Aigh, think someone else has a superior way. Does that make any sense, or did it sound like bable?

        It's the same stuff, you telling people how to do it, and insisting there is only the One Way. Yes, I understand it, but no, I don't agree with it.

        In any case, you are claiming that it is wrong of me to choose what I protest. This kind of authoritarian language doesn't have a place at PerlMonks. Does it? I don't think telling people what to think should have a place anywhere that is claiming to be a "community." You shouldn't start a thread with this kind of motivation, it is dangerous to the viability of the community.

        As for claiming to know my motivations, why I would change some posts and not others, is too ridiculous to go into.

      No where did BBQ say that you can't be offended by deep linking (or whatever your beef is). Neither did he say that he (or his opinion) was superior to you...relax, you're among friends.
