There is a repeat pattern that several of those made "read-only" have demonstrated on RTF forums. (as well as elsewhere, I'm sure)
This pattern has several variations, but the general theme is that folks create drama or controversial dialogue to get attention and get folks emotionally reactive. Then, when the originator gets things going in the desired direction, they turn things around to make themselves the poor innocent victim.
This card played, is frequently backed up with the other card that says "Yes, you caught me with my pants down...but He (or she) had their pants down first". Know what? It is irrelevant what someone did prior to you dropping your own drawers, Mr. victim-becomer. You must be accountable for your own words and your own actions on your own two legs.
Please let RTF administration deal with others who can't seem to keep their drawers properly configured.
I'm frankly sad and disappointed, while at the same time relieved that a few of the perpetual drama-creating, victim wanna-be, bad apples have been removed from the active RTF posting roster.
Part of me feels like a failure as I really thought through some ongoing dialogue, second, third, fourth etc. chances, tolerance, and respectful polite requests to modify behavior, that we could get some rehabilitation. But, as the Warden on Coolhand Luke says, What we had here was "failure to communicate".
