what happened to the original johnr thread? it was there last night, is gone today.
natura: what misunderstanding? please re-explain (perhaps privately). :-)
troy: would you consider making it impossible for members to delete entire threads? (i'm sure this is an option you could turn on for the forum.) once a thread has gone "public" i don't think anyone, except the moderator, should have the ability to delete it.
I'll look into it. The problem is the system, as I've mentioned, it is something we use, we didn't create it. I read the thread, donít recall any particular difficulty. One presumes that for conversations generally they assume that if the first post is gone, the rest of them don't make sense. Naturally, in dialogue, that's not necessarily so. They take on a life beyond the first post, which is the idea.
I might be able to archive them in some way. It would have to be automatic, I canít keep re-archiving every thread every time thereís a new post.
Weíll figure out something.
i'm guessing that if you talk to the creators of the forum software, they can easily disable the first message deletes thread "feature." :-)
good, we'll check it out
Yes, please, reachMiel,
The misunderstanding is not so much serious, I think. But the points in your response, they were. Iíve got a copy from that message, here below.
You have taken my response too personally. I meant it more generally. For example, there was a very sharp message recently from Nevets accusing this forum of too much chatting and its participants of too much reading and watching of K. Actually I was sorry troy had deleted that thread with my response together. We could use it very practically for understanding now.
I see your current response is very topical in some points and I will respond it a bit later. But Iíd like to drive your attention to my attitude to every conversation. My goal here never is suppressing the opponent, but getting that understanding of each other by finding that common level of communication. So, nobody must necessarily agree with me but I expect to be understood in my point of view. It is absolutely not the same as arguing and even not as sharing of information.
Iím sure we will find that common level and avoid misunderstanding.
> finding that common level of communication
please tell me more about this. :-)
I hope you have understood that kind of my apologies in my thread devoted personally to you.
Certainly nobody deserves to be insulted along discussions even though an unusual for public forums sensitivity is showed.
...and just a trifle, you may rummage my premises, I do not have any loot.
Glad to read from you again.
What is a right/wrong affidavit?
> "vigilante" who was distributing right/wrong affidavits
ouch ... if you and other forum members feel i am doing this, sitting in judgement, then i am sorely miscommunicating. my intention has always been to "get to the bottom of things." but my efforts are it seems failing. apologies all 'round for any suffering i've created.
i shall go on an open-ended leave of absence from the forum ... explore my motives.
thank you for bringing this to my attention.
Eric, our KFA tech wizard, solved the problem. Going forward, users should not be able to delete threads they started, they can still delete or edit their other posts.
Here is my view in short terms on that issue you ask me about.
The common level of communication is that point on the mental dimension where people can understand each other. Some conditions must be present like the communication-partners use understandable for each other language; everybody fills the words with the same meaning and step-by-step principle as well as deepest attention not only to the spoken words but also to own inner reactions are required.
Under conditions like that is possible appearance of the communication on the thought and even image level (sometimes called telepathy).
Many people know that effect but not so many use it. I see it is absolutely necessary.
An effect, probably similar with resonance well known from Physics, appears. Coincidence of frequencies of two physical bodies causes release of enormous energies. Probably you can see it with me our thought is material.
Actually understanding comes in the mind not from words themselves but from gaps between them. If you observe yourself you can quite easy see it.
