    Silenced - again.

    Quote by DOS_Box from other thread:-

    "Right. I think that's about enough. Deliberately trying to force someone to see a point of view does not work. In fact there was research released last week that came to the conclusion that those who held incorrect beleifs or assumptions often beleived them more strongly when faced with the truth. I'm not going to argure for or against Capitas SupportNet, however I did find this comment....

    Do you receive support from your local LEA or Regional Centre support team?
    If so, please contact them first before using any of these Hot Topic solutions.
    ...a little offputting, and the layout dated. However, you can't make people like something they find unhelpful and awkward to use, which is where the heated opinions here seem to be kicking in.
    So Sivadam, please stop trying to force peoples opinion, when their experiences tell them something differant. I know Capita have most probably been following this, and any points raised noted. So I'm going to lock the thread now and ask everyone to calm down."


    Just for the record - I am not trying to force anybody to do anything. I am just trying to correct the misconceptions that some users have re. both SupportNet and Edugeek!

    It is not my fault that one of your moderator's does not like me addressing the truth!

    Now you can close this thread as well if you wish!
    However,
    I find extremely rude of you to make a comment against me personally and then close the thread with no right of response. Close a thread by all means but please refrain from commenting directly against myself before you do so. Else this has to happen - a response in another thread!

    You thought that was adressed to just you? Did I address it to you? No. It was valid for all posters in the thread. Please calm down and think on things a little.

    Anything written directly to me with my user name on it must be aimed at me!
    Or at least that is what logic tells me.
    If you want a comment to be addressed to all users then kindly do not refer to me directly as this could infer that all the comments in the thread were directed at myself!

    And I have no need to calm down. I am already calm and collected. I would never let an little irritation like this affect me. I am far to old for that! And every word I post here has been thought about a lot - not a little! (though I may have to re-visit to correct the typos!!


    As for somebody from Capita following the thread - then Yes! I can virtually guarantee that they will be!

    Fine with me - as long as I get no further posts against me personally!

    Ain't it a good job that none of you worked with me when I was a lot younger?
    Now in those days I really could enjoy a good argument!

    By the way Dos_Box. Can you please remove the record that states that I started the other thread. It was not myself. It was the person that picked up my (and possibly others') comments and pasted them into a new thread, which put them totally out of context!

    ... and now for coffee ...... (I hope!)

    No, it doesn't have to happen, but your choosing to make it so is really making me dislike you. Starting a new thread to argue about why yours was closed is not an appropriate response.

    If a thread is closed by a moderator or an admin, it's an indication that the arguing and fighting has gone too far and it's time to abandon the topic and do something else for a bit. Or some work or something.

    Please stop filling my inbox with gripes.

    Then parts of the post that closed the thread should not have been aimed directly at myself with no right of reply!

    You have a right of reply*: it belongs in the forum called "Message the Admins".


    *disclaimer: not actually a right, but as close as you'll ever get.

    I suggest that, as always, grievances with the management are dealt with one to one. These public airing rarely end well and are, to be frank, a little unseemly.

    @Sivadam
    We should create a Cr@pita group on here, at least then you'll know who to ignore when they start flaming rubbish.

    Request made to mods to move this to general chat as it is not ON TOPIC for the MIS forum ... publicly stating the request so *no-one* can complain.
