After years of freely allowing comments, opinions etc. to flow through the blog, the time has come, after constant shows of degeneration and abuse of freedom, to enforce a new set of blog posting rules that will be mandatory for comment participation, effective from today forward.
While it can be considered progressive that many attacking comments in the past were allowed to be posted so that we can figure out exactly how to moderate the comments and establish a set of blog posting rules, these “tools”, observation practices and the like, no longer have use moving ahead in the future now that such data and observation has been exhaustively collected. Likewise, there will be no need for such antagonistic comments of any form from anyone, no matter who you are or what your life experience is like.
Attacks do not happen randomly. They are built overtime like seeds in a garden. Thus, all comments that are, in their seedling form, provocative, and, or, leading to an eventual attack, will be deleted before they are allowed to fester and grow into additional comments.
To balance this fairly, should members have legit concerns or criticisms, then an email will be sent to the seed-growing-comment’s poster where it will be absolutely mandatory if they wish to share their concerns they will ONLY be conducted through Video, face-to-face contact, via Google Hangouts or Skype, or in person, should both parties have the time and availability to conduct it.
This new rule is non-negotiable.
Absolutely no long emails, back and forth comments, criticisms etc. done through text will be accepted whatsoever, and will be ignored, deleted or blocked. This also includes users who wish to stand and critique like an armchair skeptic, but cannot take critique themselves or realize that no human being is without error, including themselves, or totally neglect that for every action, there’s a reaction (cause and effect)
Those who fail to adhere to these rules will be warned (up to 2 times) and on the 3rd time, should the degeneration continue, then you will be suspended from posting with the possibility of a permanent ban.
This is a step towards promoting human to human contact over the cowardice and comfort of internet anonymity which has, for too long, existed on the blog heavily and grown a terrible, distracting image of Theyfly’s true intent and representation of the mission.
Using supposedly “real names” and “emails” can easily be faked and spoofed. Furthermore, even if it is a real name and an email, comments are still being conducted behind a computer (or mobile device). Your online presence is only your ego and not the real you. Thus, to completely eradicate this inhumane form of communication as much as possible, we are moving towards promoting human contact via video or in person.
This also is a realization of the limitations of the English language, as it is advised in Meier’s material. As we grow as an evolutive collective, one must observe that there must be genuine, humane order, or degeneration and chaos ensues, even for the most advanced of us.
