  1. Connecting to the secure student/faculty WiFi on a Linux machine is a little different from other machines. When you try to connect, instead of simply being asked for a password, you will be taken to a prompt that looks something like this:


  2. If you enter your username and password and try to connect, the connection will fail because the Tunneled TLS Authentication does not work without a CA certificate. To fix this, change the Authentication type to Protected EAP (PEAP).



    You will now be able to connect without a CA certificate.

  3. Enter your username and password and click Connect. Click "Ignore" if you are asked to provide a CA certicate.

  4. You are connected. Happy trails!

This script allows the user to create and easily manage a default post template using JavaScript.

This script can be used in Greasemonkey for Firefox (with added headers) or a Greasemonkey clone for another browser.

var autoapply = true; // Enable or disable automatic formatting

var prefix = '[B]'; // Edit your plaintext [BBCode] prefix
var suffix = '[/B]'; // Edit your plaintext [BBCode] suffix

function applyTemplate(e) {
    if (e.keyCode == 80 && e.altKey) {

        document.getElementsByClassName('conversation_reply')[0].getElementsByClassName('submitUnit')[0].getElementsByTagName('input')[0].setAttribute('onClick', applyscript);
    }
    
}

Usage

** NOTE **
You cannot use single quotes (') inside of your template. Use the character code (&#39;) instead.

The first few lines contain the editable parts and are directly followed by a comment pertaining to their purpose.

var autoapply = true; // Enable or disable automatic formatting

This option controls whether or not the template in this script should be applied automatically when you press 'Submit'. This option is enabled by default. To disable it, change the value from true to false.

var prefix = '[B]'; // Edit your plaintext [BBCode] prefix
var suffix = '[/B]'; // Edit your plaintext [BBCode] suffix

These are your plaintext template prefix and suffix. Plaintext uses BBCode. You must specify valid XenForo BBCode in this template.

If you have the post content 'This is content.' when you apply this template, the result will be '[B]This is content.[/B]'.

Change the BBCode inside the the single quotes to edit.

** NOTE **
Match the id and class names if you change them. For example: If you want to change toggle-button to change-button, then replace toggle-button with change-button in every step.

1. Make sure that you have the jQuery library installed on your page. If you do not, then add following code to the <head></head> section.

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.2.js"></script>

2. Add these lines to your CSS.

.hidden-content {
    display: none;
}

#toggle-button {
    cursor: pointer;
}

You have defined a hidden class and made the button look clickable.

3. Add the button and give the content a unique id. I am using <div> elements for my example, but other elements can be used.

<div id="toggle-button">Show</div>
<br /><br />
<div id="content">Hello.</div>

4. Add the toggle script.

<script type="text/javascript">
$("#toggle-button").click(function() {
    $('#content').toggleClass("hidden-content");
    var hidden = $(this).text();
    if (hidden == 'Show') { 
        $(this).text('Hide');
    } else {
        $(this).text('Show');
    }
});
</script>

The completed product:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.2.js"></script>
<style type="text/css">
.hidden-content {
    display: none;
}

#toggle-button {
    cursor: pointer;
}
</style>
<div id="toggle-button">Hide</div>
<br /><br />
<div id="content">Hello.</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
$("#toggle-button").click(function() {
    $('#content').toggleClass("hidden-content");
    var hidden = $(this).text();
    if (hidden == 'Show') { 
        $(this).text('Hide');
    } else {
        $(this).text('Show');
    }
});
</script>

A logical deduction for proof of belief in one's own infallibility

If:

One believes that an argument will carry on forever.

Then:

These premises are assumed:

  1. Neither side will back down.
     1-a. The opposition will never back down.
     1-b. One will never back down.

Premise 1-b is proof that one believes in one's own infallibility.

If:

One believes that a discussion is waste of time and will not reach a resolution.

Then:

These premises are assumed:

  1. Neither side will back down.
     1-a. The opposition either will not be able to understand one or will not back down.
     1-b. One will not back down.

Premise 1-b is proof that one believes in one's own infallibility.

If:

One believes that they should discuss until a resolution is reached.

Then:

One or both of the following premises are assumed:

  1. One side will back down.
     1-a. The opposition is at least partially reasonable and will back down if they are proven wrong.

  2. One is able to learn from the discussion.
     2-a. One believes that they could be wrong and will back down if proven wrong.

Even if you consider premise 2 to be optional, continuing the discussion does not prove a belief in one's own infallibility.

Conclusion:

Dismissing the possibility for fruitful discussion proves that one believes in one's own infallibility while trying to resolve the discussion does not prove it.

Based on these points, dismissing the possibility for a fruitful discussion is a trap of infallibility.

This script will show an element only on specific pages of your site. You can use this script for any number of things, from removing a taxing flash widget to displaying a welcome message on your main page.

** NOTE **
Match the id and class names if you change them. For example: If you want to change music to musicbox, then replace music with musicbox in every step.

[Anything] DISABLE CODE ON ALL BUT ONE PAGE


1. Wrap your code in a <div> with a unique id.

<div id="%YOURID%">
    %YOUR CODE HERE%
</div>

2. Hide your <div> using CSS.

#%YOURID% {
    display: none;
}

3. Add the URL-dependent display script using your id and an all-purpose function.

<script type="text/javascript">
function showElements() {
    if (location.href == 'http://%YOURURL%') {
        document.getElementById('%YOURID%').style.display = 'block';
    }
}
showElements();
</script>

The completed product:

<style type="text/css">
#%YOURID% {
    display: none;
}
</style>

<div id="%YOURID%">
    %YOUR CODE HERE%
</div>

<script type="text/javascript">
function showElements() {
    if (location.href == 'http://%YOURURL%') {
        document.getElementById('%YOURID%').style.display = 'block';
    }
}
showElements();
</script>

[Tumblr + Billy] DISABLE AUTOPLAY ON ALL BUT THE MAIN PAGE


1. Wrap your music in a <div> with the id "music".

If you are using the Billy music player, your embed code will look something like this. %REALLY LONG URL% is a placeholder for the link with your songs in it.

<embed src="%REALLY LONG URL%" quality="high" wmode="transparent" width="200" height="10" name="billy" align="middle" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" />

Wrap a <div> around it with the id "music".

<div id="music">
    <embed src="%REALLY LONG URL%" quality="high" wmode="transparent" width="200" height="10" name="billy" align="middle" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" />
</div>

2. Hide the "music" <div> using CSS.

Customize your blog using the Edit HTML button below the theme box.

Once in the Edit HTML panel, press Ctrl+F and search for the first instance of </style>.

Put this at the end of your CSS (just above </style>):

#music {
    display: none;
}

3. Add the URL-dependent display script.

Place the following code below your CSS (after </style>).

<script type="text/javascript">
function showMusic() {
    if (location.href == 'http://{Name}.tumblr.com/' || location.href == 'http://{Name}.tumblr.com') {
        document.getElementById('music').style.display='block';
    }
}
showMusic();
</script>

4. Add a non-autoplaying version of the player.

Create a copy of your music box with an id of music2 and change the autoplay value to false (example provided and highlighted).

5. Hide the "music2" <div> using CSS.

Add , #music2 after #music in the selector.

#music, #music2 {
    display: none;
}

6. Edit the URL-dependent display script.

Add an else statement to catch if the current page is not the homepage and display #music2 accordingly.

<script type="text/javascript">
function showMusic() {
    if (location.href == 'http://{Name}.tumblr.com/' || location.href == 'http://{Name}.tumblr.com') {
        document.getElementById('music').style.display = 'block';
    } else {
        document.getElementById('music2').style.display = 'block';
    }
}
showMusic();
</script>

The completed product:

<style type="text/css">
#music, #music2 {
    display: none;
}
</style>

Current Music: The Wolf by Eddie Vedder

This is a tutorial on how to set up a Google+ account and get your computer ready for a Google+ Hangout session.

A Google+ Hangout session is a chat room that includes audio, video and text chat, as well as other applications such as a shared YouTube feed with everyone in the chat room. It is extremely smooth and will probably become the standard for VOiP and free video conference calls in coming years. It is a lot of fun and hassle-free so I highly recommend using it.

For those of you who want a step by step tutorial on how to do this, this is for you.

  1. Create a Google Mail or GMail account. If you already have one, then skip this step. If you have one but would rather keep it separate from your hangouts, then create another one with Google+ in mind.

    Click here to create an account. You do not have to give accurate information, so put whatever you want. Try to make it searchable, though. You want your friends to be able to find you without copying and pasting.

    You have simultaneously created a GMail and Google+ account.

  2. Edit your avatar.

    You can view your profile by clicking on your name in the top right corner of any Google+ page and clicking the "View Profile" button. See where your name is located below:

    [ Your Name ] [ # ] [ +Share ]> Icon

    You will get the same menu of the click the image on the far right after the Share menu, but you have not set an avatar yet so your name is easier to distinguish.

    Once on your profile, you should see a large 250x250 pixel square where your avatar should be. Look to the boy holding the coffee mug below for where it is.

    Avatar Example

    Click on the square to add an image.

  3. Create a circle for your hangout group.

    You can get to your Circles section by clicking the Circles button in the sidebar.

    Sidebar

    Once there, you can search for a name and drag that person down into a circle below. See where I searched "john smith" and then dragged him down into a new circle below.

    Search for a name and drag a profile into a circle to add them to it.

    After dragging the person down there, you can continue adding people until you are satisfied and then click "Create circle" in the center and name the circle. Alternatively, you can hover over the empty circle, click "Create circle" and add people later. You can drag people to already created circles such as KHV and Networking the same way.

    Once you have all of the people in your hangout group added to one circle, you can move on to inviting them a hangout session.

  4. Invite people to hang out.

    This is the simplest step. If you look back at the first picture with your name in it, you should already see the "Start a hangout" button.

    Start a hangout.

    Click it to open the invitation window. You will be asked to install the Google Talk plugin for your browser. You will need it to run the video and audio chat, so install it.

    After you have installed the plugin, it will take you to the invitation window where you can name the hangout and select circles or individuals that you want to invite. I added my KHV circle in my example to show what it looks like.

    Hangout invitation window.

    Click "Hang out" when you are done naming and adding, and you have created a Google+ Hangout with your friends.
Have fun.

Title :    Re: You have received an infraction at OneManga.com Forums
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dear Makaze,
 
You have received an infraction at OneManga.com Forums.
 
Reason: Games Forum Rule Violation
-------
The games are not here for you to start you own personal chat session, follow the rules of the game or get an infraction.
-------
 
This infraction is worth 2 point(s) and may result in restricted access until it expires. Serious infractions will never expire.
 
Original Post:
I read the manga, and did not watch it, so I could say at all, there, Czech. Sorry.

Please consider reviewing the rules.
 
All the best,
OneManga.com Forums

Hmm... So, where was the infraction? I used Czech as the nickname. I was also the one who reported him for not adding a nickname to his post. Why did you not infract me for every other post of mine on that thread and others, if this is a problem?

 
If you would like I could go back and infract you for every post you made in the games forum that was mere chit chat since you have a bad habit of that in many of the games, but I am afraid there would be so many it would total enough bans you would be close to a perma ban at this point.
 
However if I continue to let it go then the problem will continue to happen.  
 
Your bad habits cause others to have bad habits, new members that come in who do not understand the "clever" way you insert random names into your posts only see chit chat and then respond with chit chat.
 
If you want to have conversations go to the SoT or Vm's and Pm's, not in the games.

Fair enough, but I would not call it bad in the least. I prefer the games because they are more easy going. I am not as welcome in the other places. Perhaps you, as a member of the staff, can make it more hospitable for me. Otherwise, I would be tempted not to post at all...
 
If you fail to see what I speaking about, then say so. Otherwise, deal with your own problems in the future. Having been a mod many times before, I can see where you are coming from, but I enjoy my freedom. I bend the rules, and then I rebuke others for breaking them outright. You will not get any change in that from me. If I feel that I must refrain, the experience is not as full for me. If I must speak only about manga in the manga forums, am not allowed to post threads without sufficient meaning to them in the general Chit-Chat forum, and have to deal with the exclusive club that is the Shout Out Thread, then you are leaving me with very few options for conversations with multiple people at a time. For one, VMs are very limited on how much you can post, and you only get 50 PMs total. Forums are meant for communication. I would not section my discussions and only speak with people who go to the thread in that section that references the topic at hand if I had anything to say about it. Also, particularly with games, they are supposed to be ways to get closer to other people. If there is no conversation, then is just random posting. Your pedantic behavior will and most likely has cost you members before, if you do this to many members.
 
You may notice that I have no sense of authority with this, and I do hope that you do get so petty as to take offense and punish me for that. I accept points when they are valid and I argue them when they are not. I do not give credence to rank or title beyond that. If I get banned for this, it will be very pathetic indeed. I only mention that because it has happened before, and it is not out of the question with those who are used to being seated in power.
 
If my condescension has not gotten to you yet, then I commend you, and you have my respect. I will stop it if you will. I was nice enough in my first response, but I did not get a kind response back from you, or, at least, that was how it felt to me. You should take more care with tone in the future.

 
I agree with you about the SoT I never felt welcome there myself, which is why you don't see me in it, however, in order to maintain order and keep chaos to a minimum rules must be made and enforced. That is what I will continue to do, no change from me either.
 
Live according to your philosophy and I will live according to mine.

Well said. I can respect that.
 
Though, I still think it dull when you assign a name and that is all. It seems like a waste of a post to me. It is not in my nature to make one word posts if I can help it.


The Games Forum section was locked down until she had deleted and restarted the major threads that I had posted in. Anyone who made a thread in that time would receive a three day ban without warning. I was given three more infractions after the above messages. See the other infractions below.

Here we have my email exchange with an old forum of mine. It was built for students using a certain writing curriculum, though my activities there had little to do with the books.

Kvothe,
Your account has been temporarily suspended.
You have been warned several times about the tone of many of your posts - many of which are condescending, and some which move into insult.
Personally I enjoy mature discussion/debate. Mature meaning both parties exhibit respect in their manner of speech to the other. Respect has not been the pervasive tone in your posts. It certainly  isn't what is being communicated to others. That is clear from the numerous responses you've received over several months to that effect.
Healthy debate is good. Healthy meaning the common goal is truth or at the very least understanding of the other person's point of view. The goal is not to appear more intelligent than the other person, or to imply that the other person is a knuckle-dragging Neanderthal.

I don't see anything positive coming out of much of the debates/discussions you've had with many of the forum members. Understand:
This suspension has nothing to do with disagreeing or differing views/ideas. It is the MANNER in which you have related to other people on the forum. Also, I don't see much posting that relates to writing. Which is fine, but makes me wonder why you continue on the Forum. Friendship (to what extent one can have online) is a fine goal as well, but this doesn't seem to be your objective either.

Your account will be suspended for one month.
At that time we can evaluate together whether or not your return is good for you and the other forum members.
During this time I invite you to ask yourself:
        1.) WHY am I a member of the OYAN Forum?
        2.) WHAT do I enjoy about the Forum?
        3.) WHAT positive contribution(s) can I make to the Forum and its members?

You're more than welcome to correspond with me via this email account if you like.

Mrs. S.
OYAN Admin

ps - On a separate note:
Here is a small excerpt from CS Lewis' writings which I think responds in part to one of your recent debate premises.

"      Christians, then, believe that an evil power has made himself for the present the Prince of this World. And, of course, that raises problems. Is this state of affairs in accordance with God's will or not? If it is, He is a strange God, you will say: and if it is not, how can anything happen contrary to the will of a being with absolute power?
       But anyone who has been in authority knows how a thing can be in accordance with your will in one way and not in another. It may be quite sensible for a mother to say to the children, "I'm not going to go and make you tidy the schoolroom every night. You've got to learn to keep it tidy on your own." Then she goes up one night and finds the Teddy bear and the ink and the French Grammar all lying in the grate. That is against her will. She would prefer the children to be tidy. But on the other hand, it is her will which has left the children free to be untidy. The same thing arises in any regiment, or trade union, or school. You make a thing voluntary and then half the people do not do it. That is not what you willed, but your will has made it possible.
       It is probably the same in the universe. God created things which had free will. That means creatures which can go either wrong or right. Some people think they can imagine a creature which was free but had no possibility of going wrong; I cannot. If a thing is free to be good it is also free to be bad. And free will is what has made evil possible. Why, then, did God give them free will? Because free will though it makes evil possible, is also the only thing that makes possible any love or goodness or joy worth having. A world of automata-of creatures that worked like machines-would hardly be worth creating. The happiness which God designs for His higher creatures is the happiness of being freely, voluntarily united to Him and to each other in an ecstasy of love and delight compared with which the most rapturous love between a man and a woman on this earth is mere milk and water. And for that they must be free.
       Of course God knew what would happen if they used their freedom the wrong way: apparently He thought it worth the risk. Perhaps we feel inclined to disagree with Him. But there is a difficulty about disagreeing with God. He is the source from which all your reasoning power comes: you could not be right and He wrong any more than a stream can rise higher than its own source. When you are arguing against Him you are arguing against the very power that makes you able to argue at all: it is like cutting off the branch you are sitting on. If God thinks this state of war in the universe a price worth paying for free will-that is, for making a live world in which creatures can do real good or harm and something of real importance can happen, instead of a toy world which only moves when He pulls the strings-then we may take it it is worth paying.
       When we have understood about free will, we shall see how silly it is to ask, as somebody once asked me: "Why did God make a creature of such rotten stuff that it went wrong?" The better stuff a creature is made of-the cleverer and stronger and freer it is-then the better it will be if it goes right, but also the worse it will be if it goes wrong. A cow cannot be very good or very bad; a dog can be both better and worse; a child better and worse still; an ordinary man, still more so; a man of genius, still more so; a superhuman spirit best-or worst-of all.
       How did the Dark Power go wrong? Here, no doubt, we ask a question to which human beings cannot give an answer with any certainty. A reasonable (and traditional) guess, based on our own experiences of going wrong, can, however, be offered. The moment you have a self at all, there is a possibility of putting Yourself first-wanting to be the centre-wanting to be God, in fact. That was the sin of Satan: and that was the sin he taught the human race. Some people think the fall of man had something to do with sex, but that is a mistake. (The story in the Book of Genesis rather suggests that some corruption in our sexual nature followed the fall and was its result, not its cause.) What Satan put into the heads of our remote ancestors was the idea that they could "be like gods"-could set up on their own as if they had created themselves-be their own masters-invent some sort of happiness for themselves outside God, apart from God. And out of that hopeless attempt has come nearly all that we call human history-money, poverty, ambition, war, prostitution, classes, empires, slavery-the long terrible story of man trying to find something other than God which will make him happy.
       The reason why it can never succeed is this. God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on gasoline, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself. He Himself is the fuel our spirits were designed to burn, or the food our spirits were designed to feed on. There is no other. That is why it is just no good asking God to make us happy in our own way without bothering about religion. God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing."
~ quoted from C.S. Lewis', Mere Christianity

On the tone of my posts, I believe that you are being rather one-sided. While I am arrogant, I remain largely calm and will acknowledge a point if it is made. If I have directly insulted anyone, it was after much prodding on their part. Please look back over the posts of those against me and make sure that you are not simply overlooking their faults because you agree with them.

On the manner of arguing as opposed to the argument itself, I consent to the ban under those conditions. I have been overly condescending on several occasions. In my defense, however, I do not see  any other reaction to fundamentalist posts like "God is perfect. That is fact, not opinion." I have a lot of trouble not looking down on anyone who says such a thing. Also, assuming that someone is not a Christian simply because they believe differently is not wise and, again, will lead to disrespect on the part of your adversary. If you were talking about other debates, please reference them.

On whether or not something good has come out of them, you are wrong. Some have changed their views. It was not done in the best way, but it was effective on a small scale. The most recent debate may not have done much, but on a whole I have not presented anything so radically controversial until now, and my views were appreciated.

I would rather not go back into the argument, but I can say that it remains unchallenged with what Lewis said. The fact that the concept of suffering exists is not addressed so much as that we can choose suffering. He is avoiding the idea that God must have created it if he is all-powerful. Right and wrong are subjective outside of suffering. No choice is right, and no choice is wrong. There are choices that cause suffering and there are choices that do not. Lewis is thinking is terms of subjective morality, which is not what we were discussing here. I am disappointed that he professes to be unable to think outside of right and wrong, or good and bad, but then no one is perfect. I have read some of that book since it was first suggested here, and will finish it in time.

Was any notice given to the rest of the members regarding the ban? They will wonder where I have gone. Also, did you ban me of your own volition or did a member complain? I do not need a name, but I would like to know whether or not I am talking to the one fully responsible.

Kvothe,
I'm sure you realize that the Chat portion of our Forum is part of the Forum and, so, is included in the 1 month suspension.
That would apply to any and all Forum areas.
Please honor that.

I would ask to honor the fact that I have responded to you already, as correspondence was "more than welcome", and it entails participation from both parties. If you had nothing to say, then please say something to that effect. Ignoring my response and telling me to stay away from other parts of the site is not an appropriate reaction by my standards. Please answer the questions that I asked. If you have not received these responses, then please let me know. However, if you respond to this one I would think it very unlikely that the others did not go through. If I receive no response within two days I will assume that no responses will go through to this email.

As for the Chat, I was not aware of that. A chat room is very different from a forum; I would consider the fact that the link to it appears on the forum a coincidence, made convenient by the fact that those who have registered on the forum will also Chatting accounts under the same name and password. I suppose that you would include other parts of the web site a part of forum as well, then. That would include the home page. Is that the case?

Who told you that I was in the chat? I do not believe that were on at the time, and it is unlikely that you have checked the logs at any point in time. I have a strong suspicion that it was StoryGirl, as she seemed rather smug about the ban. Completely aside from the fact that I was there, I must complain about such immature antics. Did she complain in the first place, as well? I do not recall quarreling with her specifically, but she had a problem then I would like you to tell her to bring it to me next time. Tattling is an act of self-preservation and does nothing to solve the problem or mend the relationship. I do not appreciate such childish games. That is, of course, if she was responsible. I know everyone who  was there, and she was the only one who specifically sympathized against me. Do not support such actions by acting as her shield if that is the case.

Kvothe,
Do you ever accept personal responsibility for anything?
I find it very hard to believe that you didn't know that the OYAN Chat -- which is only accessible through our Forum -- is not part of our Forum. The Chat Link is a coincidence?! Oh, come on. You get 
increasingly harder to take seriously.

And you got on the Forum again this evening. You're completely disregarding the suspension and my email with very clear and specific instructions that you were to be on no part of the Forum at all for 
the time being.

I also do not appreciate your continued tone with me. I am an adult. That in no way makes me better than you or anyone else, but it does call for some amount of respect. Not to mention that it is our Forum 
that you are using. You sound like you're talking to a small child. I wasn't "ignoring" your response. And do not instruct me. I am not above instruction, but it is in no way your place to give it to me. I 
get tons of emails daily that require some kind of action or response on my part. You sent your email after 7pm CST last night! I've been out most of the day, and I have an extended To-Do list.

You're going to have a tough time in life if this is the way you choose to interact with others.

I accept personal responsibility for things that I do of my own volition. I have not banned myself, nor have I ignored my own questions. I have not denied my condescension or my having gotten on the chat. In what way am I avoiding responsibility? I feel no remorse for my condescension for personal reasons; I feel that something good has come of the last argument in particular.

You doubt my tendency towards deviation? You were not responding to my emails, and the chat was an alternate form of communication that had not been banned from use for suspended members. I feel that I have the right to spread the word about the ban if you will not.

Not having known whether or not you had received my responses, I found no problem with keeping the forum page up, so long as I did not join the chat or post. Staying away from the chat was added only after your email. Knowing that you receive them, I will stay away for now.

I apologize, but you should have responded along with or before you warned me to stay away from further parts of the site. If you have the time to be annoyed with me, then you have the time to speak with me, and not just to me. I have responded over the course of several days, not simply once last night. I believe that this will be the fifth email I have sent to you in three or four days. Also, our time zones most likely differ quite a bit.

I am treating you like a child because you are treating me like one. The questions that I have asked are simple enough, and they can be answered in a few sentences. I will recite them here for you.

"Was any notice given to the rest of the members regarding the ban? They will wonder where I have gone [and, far more importantly, why.] Also, did you ban me of your own violation or did a member complain? I do not need a name, but I would like to know whether or not I am talking to the one fully responsible."

"Who told you that I was in the chat? I do not believe that were on at the time, and it is unlikely that you have checked the logs at any point in time. I have a strong suspicion that it was StoryGirl, as she seemed rather smug about the ban. Completely aside from the fact that I was there, I must complain about such immature antics.

I know everyone who was there, and she was the only one who specifically sympathized against me. Do not support such actions by acting as her shield if that is the case."

It is quite possible that you were there and I missed it, but I will leave this unamended. I think you will find my definitions of respect very different from yours. Just as you want me to "respect" your definition of it, I want you to "respect" mine. I do not judge people based on age or standing. I judge them based on what they say. Do not get conceited because you have what our society would call seniority. Also, this has little to do with the forum. I am speaking to you as an individual, and we
are conversing over email. I have no problem with not being taken seriously, and neither should you. But, then again, I am being harsh. At this point we will both get more terse with the other until the conversation ends with you banning me forever. I should think that you want that just as little as I do.

Kvothe,

Although we have warned you numerous times about your tone with other members of the OYAN student forum, you have refused to change the rude and inappropriate language of your posts. Clearly you have no intention of respecting our warnings. It is also clear by your posting history that you are not interested in the intent or purpose of the forum.

In the last few days we have reviewed your previous posts. You have knowingly violated the forum rules, including posting rude, abusive, and sexually oriented content. This demonstrates more than a simple lack of respect for us as the owners of the forum; it shows a complete disregard for the well-being of other forum members, especially those   who are much younger than you.

Consequently, we are banning you from further use of the OYAN forum.

Predicted. I think it safe to assume that you have not informed the other members of the ban. You have not answered my question, despite having claimed that correspondence was "more than welcome." Shall I take matters into my own hands?
I made an apology and had the member raraavis post it for me, only to have it deleted about twenty minutes later. Four members posted saying that they forgave me before this happened. Thanks, guys...

Having had my say in the email exchange, I can see no reason to further justify myself. As such, please take the following as an honest apology. Through much deliberation and further comments from some of my friends in the real world from the ban up until now, I have come to admit my own failings. Being as self-absorbed and intellectual as I am, being a member here has fed my ego and strengthened my resolve. Experience has allowed me to build a wall of superiority that sets me above everyone that I speak to, and I have a great deal of trouble agreeing with anyone on any particular point of interest. While this serves to entertain me for the time being, it ultimately leads to derision on the parts of both parties involved, and little is accomplished in the way of true progress. This is a problem that has only become more apparent with time, as more and more people have brought it my attention.

During the course of the deliberation mentioned earlier, I had a lot of trouble coming up with alternative modes of action. Knowing that I should change was not really helpful in the way of accomplishing the goal itself. It was a large thorn in my side that I could not get rid of, and resentment kept building as time went by without any kind of reconciliation. Eventually, I managed to clear my head and considered how I could have reacted for the better, or, more appropriately, how I could do so in the immediate future. I thought back to previous arguments that I had participated in in which I was able to clear the slate immediately and become perfectly calm, able to admit my own faults without the apparent need to justify them with others' actions. And then it came to me. Why could I not have done the same from the start? It seemed so simple, I still wonder at how I had managed to avoid it for days.

As a result of this line of reasoning, I came to the conclusion that my original premise was very badly presented, and that it was done so in haste. As a result, the responses that I received were not up to my standards, and I saw no way to be more soft spoken than I was. For this I am deeply sorry; to those who had a problem with my approach, I hope that you can forgive and forget. I should have known better than that; I have been house trained, after all. The discussion that I am talking about, that of Another Conversation, should not have been started. I think it is important for me to note that such regret and my voicing of it does not have to do with the ban so much as my own convictions, which, because I cannot access the thread at this time, are based solely on my memories of the attitudes I expressed and the words of the aforementioned friends. It is because of this that I feel that the convictions will last.

As to the literally stated reasons behind the ban, I still have a hard time believing that they were so general. I am trying to be as considerate and objective as I can about this, but any way that I look at it, my attitude has changed, and it was only after this change that such a problem as would befit the original ban arose. While I have been acting particularly out of line recently, my overall participation has not been so bad as to warrant a ban for more than a week or two, even as a sum. Consider these actions as you would those of a child, and whether or not these things warranted being grounded, and for how long. I am fairly certain that most members appreciate my contributions as a whole, even if they do not agree with me on some things. If this is not the case with any who read this, I would appreciate any kind of feedback from you regarding your objections to me as a whole. I am sorry that you feel that way.

As to the conditions that were given when I was first banned, I believe that I can safely say that I will avoid any more confrontations like the last one, and will make a concerted effort to act as I have here far more often. I cannot promise a full relinquishing of my condescension, but I should have little trouble avoiding insults and the like. It is in my nature to be somewhat arrogant and to deviate to extremes on many subjects, and if you want me to become a submissive straight-arrow personality, you will not get your wish. If you do not like me for who I am, then I am sorry if that was a part of your expectations, or rather, requirements, but I am not willing to conform so completely to so little personal gain. I mean that with all due respect. This should not be a problem if the ban was a direct result of my recent actions, and I should hope that I have not been such a problem the whole time. It has been over a year and a half, after all.

Please note once again that this is merely an expression of my thoughts, and is in no way a direct plea against the ban. I am posting this for myself, and I do hope that you do not consider this an act of defiance. However, if you consider me to have changed, I would be satisfied to finish out the month instead of the permanent ban. Having posted this, I feel secure in my convictions and feel that I have atoned for my mistakes. As stated earlier, I admit to these mistakes and accept one month's suspension, but I still stand in opposition to anything resembling a death sentence. Just so that we are clear on that.
