‘I’m sorry you interpret this as malicious or an attempt to stop a conversation’
I don’t interpret it as malicious, I interpret it as short-sighted and reckless, with very little thought put into what effect such an action has on the reputation of Edgeryders LBG.
The idea that you would not check the timestamp of comments to get an understanding of how a conversation has developed over time before making such an unprecedented call seems a particularly hasty approach.
‘I see it as a compromise that would allow the unpleasant but necessary conversation to continue’
I did not find my discussion with Alberto unpleasant, and both Patrick and Arthur had not been engaged in the thread for a long time.
‘As well as giving everyone time to cool off enough to at least get the name of the person they are addressing right.’
This makes no sense. Is this referring to katalin calling Patrick Andrews ‘Andrew’? This is clearly a simple and very understandable mistake, not a frazzled error of someone frothy-mouthed with rage. There is nothing, nothing in her comments or tone which could be seen as an insult or an attack against Patrick. As I see it, in the same spirit as my comment, she wanted to draw attention to the sensitive situation between ER and ER LBG.
The last two comments that may be interpreted as ‘attacks’ would be Patrick’s ‘Bad Blood’ (21 hours ago) and ArthurD’s ‘Incompetence…’ (22 hours ago). Since then all discussions on the thread have been perfectly level-headed and completely in accordance with the ER code of conduct.
