Well it may be for the site owner, but.....

And I have to conceed the cleverness of it all.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

Just a note to the mods, this is like the third thread he's posted on the same topic in two weeks.

Then does the sale of enterprises into private hands really promote the revealing of the possibilities inherent in the socialist system? No, it does not.

I've kicked it to AF with a reminder of what comes next if it continues. Let us know if he makes a new thread or threadjacks that one into oblivion.

So the generating of money, even for this site is ok?

They are only having people purchase things from the NS store. THAT is legal. Using the NS forums to raise money for other causes, is not.

I was unaware of the exception, I did not see it in the site rules, but thanks for the answer.

And since you are using an off color to answer me, which is generally used when giving a warning or a knock it off prior to a warning. I am taking it as a warning to knock off asking this kind of question, is that a correct assumption.?

If you were to receive an unofficial warning or warning, it would be explicitly noted in a message.

I think you miss my point. Using the voice of mod colors, is an implication that something against site rules is being done, and one should knock it off.

I am asking if there was an objection to what I asked, and i would like to know what that objection was; And if there was not an objection, I should not have been talked to with the voice of mod, and I would like lamoni coached to that effect.

Perusing the rest of today's moderation threads I r3alize this may not be the best time to ask for some introspection, but this is the hand I was dealt.

*sighs* No, the use of Mod colors, whatever that is, is not an indication of anything. Various Mods use various ways to get the point through, especially in threads where people seem to be ignoring Moderator instructions in favor of chasing their rhetorical rabbit. If we warn you, it'll be made quite clear.

Laffin, read what you wrote. We understand it the exact same way, particularly the bolded for my convenience part. That is my point and question
Edit to add.
Look if the answer is ooops lamoni goofed, that's fine.
If the answer is Ethel you smell bad and we hate you. That's fine too,
If the answer is it was appropriately used for reasons x, y, and z. That lovely as well, but I don't think it's unreasonable for me to ask.

Lamoni was giving you a ruling on what you asked. So, Lamoni decided to use the red text. That's really it. No one is in trouble, no one goofed.
