in reply to Monastery Abused ! Action ?

Given the transient nature of the chatterbox, this problem should have been dealt with in the chatterbox itself.

If the offense was there, some of the power users could have sanctioned some borg time to the culprits (Chatterbox FAQ).

That would have solved the problem and got rid of the offense. (After a few minutes)

Instead, with your intervention, the offense is in this page forever (or until someone decrees to remove it).

Now, according to your own request, what should we do to you? You've done the same as the offenders you are indicating, with the aggravation that your offense is permanent, while theirs is long gone.

I am not saying that such behaviour should not go unsanctioned (although I have no way of telling if there was any misbehaviour there), but that you are making a bad situation worse.

It's like writing in a newspaper "passing by the school, I heard two students using the F word". Before you wrote it, it was a limited problem, and the headmaster could have solved it. After you wrote it, it becomes a planetary issue, which is now known to anyone, even the ones who were not connected at that time, even the ones who usually don't pay attention to the chatterbox, and the ones (the majority, I think) who did not know that such words were offensive.

Why making such a big fuss? Let the CB deal with CB issues.

    Hi rnahi and others,

    Letting know others will for sure result in people understanding that this should not be repeated and ensuring further from each individual that they dont make the same mistake.

    There is nothing wrong in this becoming a planetary issue , its all about awareness.

    If you had not known this you wouldnt have given your opinion..i guess this monastery is succesfull as it has all good comments/opinions integrated to it and not a headmasters rule alone

    The offensive in this page is forever... yeah why not ! its just like a permanent sign on the highway indicating "Accident Zone" ... "Go Slow".

    My intention is not to let people know that these are the offensive words in a particular language , was to tell these arent the words to be discussed further.

    I would have appreciated if you had also suggested a solution to the problem rather than looking at what impact this node will create.

    Best regards to rest
