Most of you are probably aware that I have been very busy the past few days and not in the forum too often. In response to a topic that has now been removed from the site at the request of the author "Jeremy Burnham" I sent Jeremy the following personal message:
"JB - I have that I have to write this message, but regarding your posts in the thread: http://49ersparadise.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=9959#9959
I have received several complaints about the way you are handling yourself, especially since you are Corner Writer representing this forum.
Calling someone a "hypocrit" whether they are or aren't is a personal attack which is not allowed on this forum.
"What, peopel can't speak their minds here? I can back up everythign I say. It's not like I'm attacking without cause. It's a fair and very good point. Just because it my not be what he wants to hear, means I can't say it? Bull. If B wants to warn me thats fine, then I'm out. It's up to him. I'm not going to change my ways here."
"attacking without cause" is irrelevant on this forum. There is to be NO attacking period. You can speak your mind, I encourage you to have differences of opinion, they key is not letting it get personal. This is not illegal URL or like many other forums on the net, and one of the key reasons for that is that there are NO, absolutely NO personal attacks.
I am indeed warning you over this thread. Because quite simply you are breaking the rules. The rules are not different for you, or any other corner writer. I don't want you to 'leave' because of this, but if you feel I am treating you poorly, or wrongly, and that you have to leave, than that is of course your choice, but not something I would like to see happen.
Let it be known that I have your back the majority of times, I am not taking the side of a member over yours, rather, I am explaining to you how your broke the rules of the forum, and what you can do so that you don't break them again. [This explanation was needed due to a situation between Jeremy and the owner of illegal URL]
you also write "I'm not even attacking him" which is clearly not true, as you even admit in previously quoted parts of this message to attacking him.
To which Jeremy responded:
"Please have all my articles removed ASAP. You are full of crap"
"Get my articles off the site ASAP!!!
I don't need your **** any longer. I stayedwith your site because I
said I would not write just until I found something else and leave,
and I am one who keeps his word. That is the only reason I wass still
there, but that does NOT mean I have to put up with ****. You have no
CLUE what an attack is. Calling someone an "idiot" is. Saying what I
said was not becasue it can be defined. An idiot is pretty much anyone
who didagress with the person. Other names have certen things that the
person has to fall in to to be what he was called. It is fact base and
stating facts is not attacking.
Anyway, this site does not allow for free speach at all which really
sucks. I did the best to blind with all your stupid rules that enough
is enough. Please have all my articles taken down ASAP, thanks

...before I continue I would like to express my apologies for all the profanity and harsh words in this thread... As you all know I don't typically post an entire topic about a person leaving the site, but since he was a corner writer, I felt an explanation was necessary.
I have great pride in this site, and the community that has been built here at 49ers Paradise. I strive to maintain order at this site, and make it a place where people can talk about anything 49ers. Some people think they are above the law, or simply choose to ignore it. This is a perfect example of how the rules apply to everyone, regardless of status. Yes, there are limits to our free speech in here. There's no doubt about that. We are limited from bashing each other, swearing, and from flat out being disrespectful. I find that these small limits are enough to maintain order, and have done a great job in keeping this forum going strong for over seven years.
Once again I am sorry if anyone's feelings were hurt in the manner, and that I was unable to address this problem sooner. Jeremy has not been banned, but has been warned. Should the rules of this site be violated by him subsequently he will indeed be banned.
Jeremy has chosen not to write for this site anymore, but if you are still interested in reading his articles, you can do so at illegal URL (man they are getting lots of publicity on this site today)
