Seriously quit provoking, asturm. And yes you're the one provoking until you get a reaction. Do you get off on it, or is there something else going on, perhaps an attempt to get the thread locked or some people banned?

Although, Tony is a little overboard, I'd get tired of the constant stalking too.

Speaking with no irony, I envy you on this point. I've dealt with far too many shops where specifications were written to document the implemented program, if they got written at all.

I'd like to think that the moderation team usually works with a pretty light touch on these sort of things, so I'm a bit concerned to see this characterization as "jackbooted censors." What actions or posts brought on that remark? I'll readily grant that some of these threads get reported aggressively, but reports don't always translate into moderator intervention.

I think this is an overreaction. It's fairly easy with the forum to see all recent posts, and I use that as part of my general patrol. I don't often participate in some of the threads it finds, but I at least skim them all. It's reasonable that asturm might be just opening everything he thinks might be interesting based on subject lines, rather than following you in particular. I think it's fair to say that asturm is strongly inclined to respond to posts with which he disagrees, and it's pretty clear you two frequently disagree. It's thus unsurprising that he tends to show up in threads where you are active. It may not be productive, but I'd like to believe he's not doing it just to antagonize you.
