I wonder if people can read at times

Justice without reading
-
We all make errors of sort at times. But when an alert is made and the alert contains quotes that do not exist... why can't the jury see that? Just puzzles me.
-
Quotes are supposed to be accurate. Sometimes they are used out of context and used wrongly on a topic ... but they at least exist when used that way.
-
To quote something that does not exist, and then for someone to not even look to see if it exists ...equals no justice.

1. I don't like the way the jury thing is set up.

It shouldn't ask me for a first judgment until AFTER it's shown me the comment being alerted on in context. I always click through to read the OP and the given subthread in which the alerted upon comment resides. Reading the individual comment without any context other than the alerter's words can be incredibly misleading.

2. the jury on one of my posts did that

 

on another in same thread.. perhaps not.
-
the fact or issue that perhaps the alerter did not understand post may have lead them astray.
-
I am sort of thinking that both the alerter and the person being claimed as in violation should BOTH be able to comment before a jury makes a decision
-
yeah, I try to put post in context and go through prior posts in thread. Some people troll you until your last post seems inappropriate or worse

3. That makes sense too.

That the person alerted on should be given some window in which to offer a rebuttal comment to go to the jury as well. I can see where you wouldn't want to simply wait for them to provide one forever, because they could block the jury that way, but maybe give them one hour to respond.

4. it gets tricky on the time allowed.

 

Not everyone is here an hour after an alert is made.
-
notation that an alert has been made within the given post might be okay saying
"pending with 24 hours" or such.
-
maybe a temporary hide
-
someone coming here just to disrupt might alert 100 a day, or someone with a different agenda
