in thread On Being Silenced

You're probably right, I am reading far too much into this. It's the PHP getting to me. In my defence, I did think that there might be some automatic block in place, and looked around the site to try and find out if something like what you described might have happened.

And no, I didn't get tye's permission to quote him, but isn't it acceptable to quote something that someone actually said?

Maybe I should go back to lurking for another 6 months.

    "isn't it acceptable to quote something that someone actually said?"

    I quoted you right after your post, so people reading it can see its context. But quoting really needs a context, because it can be dangerous.

    maybe tye was talking about a completely diffrent thing there, but quoting him in your context makes him trying to pull off something nasty here..

    He who asks will be a fool for five minutes, but he who doesn't ask will remain a fool for life.

      Did it really seem like that in my post? If so I apologise, but I honestly tried to make it clear what the situation was by saying "Nobody except me had said anything for a while, so it wasn't replying to anyone else"...
