I have actually long utilized the example of visitors at a mixer in my (absurdly-long) blog sitecomment policy I was advised how perfectly the metaphor uses to social networks.
Hint Jonathan V. Last’s informative and helpful Triad:
” This social media resembles a celebration I’m tossing at my home, and you’re all welcomed. So here’s the offer. I’m not gon na compose an entire list of guidelines on a blackboard like I’m your third-grade alternative instructor. I do not mind you being rowdy since this is an enjoyable celebration in my home. However if you cross the line, I’ll kick you out on your ass. Where is the line? I’m not going to attempt to discuss it to you, so simply keep yourself in check so you do not cross it.
However I’m not going to make any pretense here that I’m “reasonable” or “unbiased”. If I like you, I’ll most likely let you get away with more. If I do not like you however you’re still making the celebration cool, I’ll most likely cut you some slack. You may get a caution, or you may not. Look, I’m partying too, and I do not constantly have time to do cautions. In some cases there will be a misconception and I’ll kick you out when I must not have, and possibly I’ll regret it later on. However most likely not.
However if you’re a genuine ass, you’ll be tossed out so hard that you’ll be staggering your intoxicated method down the street, mumbling to yourself about how unreasonable it was, and hearing the loud music from my incredible celebration which will be going on without you. And we will not even miss you.
So do not grumble to me about my celebration. Act yourself and understand that I am approximate and capricious in defense of the rocking time we are having. And do not ask me to be “reasonable” since I’m simply not.”
That sums this up completely.
Be careful of those attempting to require their favored bad stars and devastating speech onto personal platforms in the guise of “Flexibility.”
As I discussed last week, when federal governments mandate such things, it is the accurate reverse of flexibility– it is tyranny.
