I do agree with questioning the logic of an argument, however my experience on this board has been that some posters are not able to do that without making it personal ("you are stupid" sort of comments). It is completely acceptable to say, for example, "The logic in that argument makes no sense to me because..." but not acceptable to say, for example, "Only people of a low IQ would think that." Those are completely different statements.


Also, if there is a post that you feel got missed, even if it was reported already, please feel free to re-report it and mention that you feel it got missed in the additional comments area. I'm not perfect, and while I try to catch everything and run things I'm not sure about past another mod, things can get missed.

I totally agree, which is why it confusing when that doesn't occur, but the reverse does.

And I apologize for not getting to that thread immediately - I was at the ped with a sick baby. Unfortunately, this isn't the only board I cover, and while I try to get to things as soon as I can, I sometimes don't see something until the next day. Also, you ladies post a lot :-), more than I am able to keep up with on some days - hence the reason using the RAV feature is important. That's also why sometimes I move threads for review so I get a chance to read through them without them growing exponentially while I do!

I hope the baby is feeling better!


I figured that an email was the fastest way to let you know what was going on, because I assumed that you covered more boards than just this one....

I just wanted to add to my original post. The reason threads have been moved is to prevent members from joining in the disruption while we work on removing TOS violations.

If that was actually applied in that manner, I'd agree. It's not.


Does iV really think that phrases like "I don't know why you're in a tizzy." is harassing or attacking? Cmon!

I also soundly object to the whole "no sarcasm' rule -- really?

I used to stop by here quite a bit, but its seemed dead for a couple months and I've missed the drama...its too bad because I typically enjoyed the exchanges. I hope it doesn't die outright.

I agree with that.
