  Yes! Let's all rehash here all the horrible things we've said to one another and that have earned us warnings and mutings. Excellent idea! It's not as if Kyndo has anything better to do than delete and/or modify comments all day long!

... I wish that I could tell the coworkers that I'm daytripping to another part of the country with that no, I *don't* actually know that random foreigner, and *yes* it would be kinda creepy to go over and talk with him/her/it.  :-[

You're rude towards people a lot. That goes against the site's terms of service.

[1] The definition of harassing shall be understood as (but not solely limited to) intimidating, pressuring, verbal attacks or otherwise unwanted behavior against a person.

Just responding to claims people have made shouldn't be considered rude.  Also, if being rude is somehow a standard that is applicable, as opposed to being objective, it would need to be applied universally.  This site is rife with comments that are over the top rude that stand.  Selective deletion is a slippery slope.

I don't make a habit of reporting people (I've only done it twice in 6+ years on this site), but I reported one of the site's more obnoxiously rude regulars when he was on a particularly cantankerous streak, including directly insulting multiple posters. I got a reply from Admin pretty much saying "Sucks, but he isn't breaking any rules, so we won't do anything. Sorry not sorry." If your post was deleted for being rude, then they're being very selective about how/who they moderate.

     It might just depend on which mod stumbles across it.
    When a comment is reported, whoever deals with the issue then closes it (so that not everybody ends up giving the poster a warning for the same comment, which would end up possibly muting somebody for something minor) so that it doesn't show up anymore.
   Because of this, it's possible that similar issues might have slightly different responses.  :undecided:
   Apologies if it doesn't sound fair, but the alternative would be dealing with everything by committee, and that would probably offend all of the anti-socialists among us!  :wink:

Coincidentally, this response is one that I occasionally want to say to my coteachers, but I'm afraid of getting reported to the Korean anti-commie Stasi (113).

“Rude” can’t really be used as a standard because it is really only measured by the victim.

If I tell my American friend to stop being a c*nt... that’s rude. My Australian friend, however, would appreciate being called out.

(Your American or Australian friends may differ.)

So true. It's a cultural thing. As a Canadian, I consider the word as profoundly ignorant as it can possibly get. I have never heard a Canadian use the word as an insult or put-down. As a description for female anatomy, yes.

I had a Kiwi friend tell me to stop being a C***  because he didn't like something I wrote about another person. I texted him "Lose my number dude, and never speak to me or my wife again."

I heard he moved back to NZ recently. We never exchanged another word.

Generally Americans don't use rude words, but they act rude or obnoxious.

Brits though use a lot of rude words and don't take them seriously. But they have better manners and behaviour.
Catch my drift?

I miss my co-teachers and two have actually vacationed and visited me and my wife. I was fortunate, I never had a nasty co-teacher my entire time in Korea. A couple I became quite friendly with and socialized.

If I could tell any of them anything, I would say come and visit me in the tropics.

dear co2
You're amazing! Your teaching style reflects how much u care about teaching and how well controlled the classes are clearly shows your prowess and professionalism in teaching. This was further confirmed after the new semester changed and u taught B classes instead of A class that co1 taught who were out of control. Thank you for sharing and caring about your life while hearing about mine and showing geniune interest in what happens to my life instead of all the bad things like co1 does.

You're too kind.
