Those posts you cite are typical of Mish's utter lack of civility, and every one of them should have been pulled for incivility and/or personal attacks. Give him the Feste? A one month suspension would be more like it. Oh, I've been trying to avoid looking at the message boards for a while. Still dissapointed with the election result, I am trying to concentrate more on work and play and less on trying to make a point on PA.But I of course skim the "best of" boards and was pleased to find nominations for Mishedlo, who I believe honestly does more for the TMF community than any other fool I have come across and probably, in his own way, more than the Gardners put together.Nomination.... and then came the posts from jiml8 and rinjr715 and others, claiming that Mishedlo is not fit to be a Feste Award Nominee because of his posts.Taken out of context, one can gather posts from virtually anyone on PA and put forward an argument that this person is rude, unpleasant, aggressive and belongs in everybody's P-Box.Here some tasty excerpts from jiml8: So, moron, let me spell it out for you in little words that won't overwhelm your obviously limited capabilities. http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21641685Well, loon, it is just the clear evidence that you display no rationality, little intelligence, and zero capacity to address questions to you about your positions.http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21489531I'm glad I don't live in your world. It must be a sad and paranoid place. http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21513096Here, loon. I'm going to help you out a bit.http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21483002And these are the kooks who call themselves the intellectual elite??????http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21241930No, you clearly are insane since you clearly don't know when to fight. http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=21116508The fact is, that Mish is not any more guilty of flaming others than anyone else. But now the self-righteous "right" are all gathering together to wail and whine that Mish is actually a horrible, horrible person because he once said this or he once said that. It shouldn't degenerate into a mud slinging contest. Evidently Republicans have taken the Bush campaign and its methods to heart because THAT is EXACTLY what they are doing. They are attempting to discredit someone on the basis of his "niceness".But the Feste Award isn't about someone being "nice". It's about electing that person, who has contributed the most to TMF as a whole. What I ma saying is that we shouldn't be dragging everybody's garbage up to prove they don't deserve the award: we should be comparing their contribution to this community to see whether they are worthy of winning the award.Mishedlo is, in my opinion and in the light of the information he gathers for the rest of us, a very worthy nominee and I personally hope he wins it.RegardsAhote
