You are off base here. The base argument is whether the photos are out there for the general public to see. They are not.
You and others argue that the photos are therefore protected.
Jim made a public post whereby he congtatulated John McKenna (albeit sarcastically) on posting the images.
Jim’s post was not seditions or damaging.
Subsequent posting from both sides of the fence have followed the all-to-familiar path.
The issue remains constant: some believe that all images are protected in NFE. I maintain that they are not.
Jim used the word pornographic to make a point, which is that Nick deletes what is, in his opinion or the opinion of others) pornographic.
As to COE violations, I can argue from both sides. I can argue that Jim disparaged John, and be successful.
I can also argue that John disparaged the entire organization by posting what he did.
Why not throw both out of the org?
John and Jim take a hike.
Is everyone happy now?
I know I feel a whole lot better…:roll:
This argument solves nothing. The comprimise is for John to be allowed to continue posting his personal views, sans the graphic images. The comprimise is for Jim to delete all references. The comprimise is for all parties to let this thing die, concentrate on our businesses, and concern ourselves with what really matters in this organization.
I remine everyone oof something important: Not For Everybody is not a free-for-all, anything goes forum absent of a need for common sense.
We can all agree on that one.
And, for the record, I dont agree with everything Jim Bushart does or does not do.
I also dont agree with everything Mike Larson writes.
The difference comes down to how Mike and I interact with each other. I think that, even though we oppose each other with regard to this particular issue, we respect each other’s opinion. He’s on the ESOP with others. I havent told him to sit down and shut up just because I happen to disagree with him.
He thinks I am wrong. I am cool with that.
I would have handled things differently than Jim. I’m cool with that, as well.
The comprimises have been put forward. It’s up to the individuals directly involved (John and Jim) to decide where they want to take this.
