That I "would very much regret" continuing to post "unwelcome" after each one of his.

Sticks and stones may break bones, but words will never bother Keiva.

Dear Bill: There is a big difference between words and promises. Guess which mine were?

read for your self Armor..

http://wordsmith.org/board/showflat.pl?Cat=&Board=announcements&Number=75127

i suppose, some one could argue in a court of law that this is not a threat... but since being sued, is a drag , even if you win, and when the words are posted by someone who has practiced as an lawyer. .. the natural reaction is to think you are about to be sued.. of course, keiva will wiggle and giggle the words, and say nothing of the sort was said.. but cummilatively, what emerges is a picture of someone who is a liar, a bully and blackmailer.. and most unwelcome here.

I did not see it as arrogant, blackmail, etc.

Then you must live in a world of your own.

And don't try to blame us for your husband's many short-comings. That's just shallow.

I propose, at my expense, to set up and run a similar board
that is what Keiva (aka..what ever) says.. he wants he board, with his rules, and to have Anu help him, and for Anu to provide links, before he Keiva leaves, (even thought he was banned)

What's the problem? Keiva finds more and more every time he posts, the cookies are updated, and he has read only status? so now suddenly he want his own board?

Good... and soon enough, the sock puppets will have read only status too..

this would be a healthy end to it
or Keiva could just leave.. that would be a healthy end.

though I had suggested the addition of an apology
Let me know when that happens... i expect pigs will fly, hell will freeze over and the end of the world will be nigh... I am sure the answer was, that he had nothing to apologies for, right?
Why the hell should Anu be interested in fostering Keiva's interest? especially after the crude and bullying way Keiva has treated Anu.

Dear ewein:

You wrote, "I realized that it might be rejected--but by Anu, since it is his board."

If Keiva wanted a response from Anu, why didn't he send a PM to "wordsmith"? Why did he publish his intentions on the forum? A forum proposal would, by design, call forth public response. And those responses could be negative. That's the nature of the beast.

I cannot begin to number the times I have contacted Anu privately--at least four times, but, perhaps, more. When I addressed Anu publicly, however, I did so in the hope that there would be public response to support whatever I wrote.

I would think that, had Keiva addressed Anu privately first, then, had Anu given serious consideration to Keiva's proposal, that proposal could have been set forth for public discussion.

You see, by Keiva's publicly declaring his proposal, he, in effect, asked for public response.

And because Keiva's proposal has been made in a public forum, I must add expression of my belief that it appears to be a riduclous proposition for many of the reasons that have been made above. Keiva has caused too much time to be taken away from the purpose of the board to receive any kind of pay-off in setting up his own board.

Someone commented in some communication about all the troubles on the board that the world is very large--billions!--and that Keiva's setting up of a new board is a good idea. It may have been the writings of jmh--memory serves me poorly now.

But what a truth that is! Let Keiva examine successful boards. I would invite him to take a look at maestronet.com. That is a wonderful music discussion board. Let him ask his friends about other successful boards to examine. And then let him design his own word board in whatever way he can create a winner. I sincerely wish him well in creating something of value that will let him express his best qualities.

Best regards, as always,
Theresa

ewein states: I really don't get it.

this must mean that the "ayes" have it.
