This node never contained anything.
Well, okay, it did, but I elided it before hitting the "create" button. Hint, hint. Then I un-elided and spoilered it because I'm right, damnit. Perhaps I can serve as an example for peoples' private complaints, others' inflamatory posts and CB messages and the general -- excuse me -- bitchiness that has erupted within the Monastery today.
Has everyone suddenly become two years old?
Ambush removal of people's accustomed access? What jenius thought that was fair? Whining about it under the Anonymonk to the populous? Sure, that won't circle the authorities into mutual protection. And don't think that just because you didn't post that we didn't see your war of words in the CB today.
You're all acting like a bunch of spoiled brats. If you want to take your marbles and go home, STFU and just do it. /msg the victims and move on. If you want to tell others about what you consider to be unfair behaviour, stand up and take the hit for your convictions. And if you're going to tell someone publicly "thanks, now push off" in public, well, just don't. It's damned tacky.
(You know, I'm never gonna be sad that this is my first node with a negative rep. It matches the only time I've had a negative respect for the behaviour of my fellow monks.)
A good friend of mine (now departed from this world) used to tell anyone whose emotions started to overflow their reason: "Penalty: Drink a Beer". I'll buy the keg ... you have to ask for a glass.
Updated: My apologies for being insufficiently clear. I did not intend it to be implied that jeffa was the OP. A person unknown to me posted about an issue affecting jeffa and I connected the two by my sentence construction. Again, my apologies.
