Now. Quick with the lock so we can know this for certain, and thanks.

Whomever's forum this may be, its certainly not yours.

nominative: who
genitive: whose
dative: whom
accusative: whom

Who is this guy?
Whose forum is this?
Whom did you give the book?
Whom did I call yesterday?

Interestingly "whom" in the accusative is falling out of use faster than in the dative - on the other hand "him" in the accusative (he, his, him, him) seems to be very firmly rooted.

If a local council puts up a social space (ie a hall or a skatepark) for your use, it does not do so without placing a set of rules upon its use. In other words, there is a difference between being given something to own and being granted permission to use.

Not entirely true. We pay a subscription, for that we get access to EVE and these forums.


Access... to someone else's property. Paying a subscription doesn't suddenly make it yours or gets you a vote in day to day things. People really need to lose this mindset. You pay for access. Not for a chair on the CCP board of directors.

The nonsense and basic useless conversations here are OURS

The method to do so and the frustations about our "high-quality" sharing of information is THEIRS

My understanding of the use of who vs. whom was based on the old rule of not ending a sentence with a preposition.

So:

Who are you speaking to? - WRONG
To whom are you speaking? - RIGHT

I may be oversimplifying because I oversimplify everything.

Every last piece of HTML markup, every last letter you type, all belong to CCP.

CCP's forums. CCP's rules. If you can't post stuff that is relevant to EVE, post in OOPE. When your off-topic post is locked, moved or otherwise tampered with, complain to ISD not the rest of the audience on the forums. If you complain on the forums you will be locked again because you are breaking the rules about discussion of moderation.

Does it make ME look more INTERESTING if I just activate capslock every few WORDS or does IT just make IT really horrible for YOU to read MY text?

Doesn't anyone ever read Terms of Service? and ISD's / CCP are pretty chill for the most part. Give me some mod powers and id clean this place right up.

Then volunteer your services to CCL.

They are looking for new members IIRC.

There is EVE sub-reddit for all your libertarian needs. You can post anything there to get your portion of downvotes (and upvotes).

p.s. thanks for attempt to liberate this boring forum! However considering type of human interactions in EVE it has high chance to turn into infinite amount of whine, accusations, nerf requests.

The EVE Online Forums are the property of CCP Games. CCP Games, as the designers and hosts of said forums, have set rules to which users wishing to post in these forums must comply. Additionally, we have empowered people that we trust to enforce those rules. Should you believe that these rules are being reinforced unfairly, please notify us with a petition.

You will find that all forums have a set of rules that the people who use them must follow. If you feel that the rules are in some way overly restrictive, or unfair, then that is an entirely separate conversation.

Additionally, Locked.

11. Discussion of forum moderation is prohibited.

The discussion of EVE Online forum moderation actions generally leads to flaming, trolling and baiting of our ISD CCL moderators. As such, this type of discussion is strictly prohibited under the forum rules. If you have questions regarding the actions of a moderator, please file a petition under the Community & Forums Category.
