It's the same law for everyone. This forum is known to be fairly lenient on rule breaking regardless of who's doing it. The main purpose of the rules are as a disclaimer to get rid of troublemakers.
I'd be interested to know what you mean by "troublemakers". I can accept that where trolls are concerned but not where it involves members whose persistent often insulting and offensive behaviour towards other members has left a lot to be desired, although that seems to have existed mainly in the past - and I am excluding here the "Off-topics discussion" thread.
Mark would no more exempt me from the 'rules' than you. However, I will point out that you're the one that attacked me first and yes I was personal but with regards to your attitude towards me it seemed to fit the bill.
I could be wrong, but as far as I'm aware I've only ever commented on your religious beliefs, not on what I perceive you to be like as a person, simply because I don't know you other than on this forum.
Any chance of us just putting this under the heading of 'Hazel and Aileen can't stand each other' and move on?
Willingly, but I reserve the same right as you have to post on this thread if and when I feel moved to do so, although like you I often read the posts on here but don't respond for a variety of reasons.
