    Why? It's dead accurate.
    Devoid of context, I agree that MLF's post appears to be damning. But so does putting someone in jail for walking on the same side of the street as another person. However, that's exactly what can happen if you're named in a restraining order. And you get named in a restraining order because a judge has decided that your prior behavior has earned you a shorter leash.

    I don't know if MLF was referring to a specific incident, and I don't think calling anyone an idiot is worthy of discipline. (Cue people calling me an idiot.) But as always, there's more to it.

    Relationships have normal ebbs and flows. They do not automatically get better and better when the participants learn more and more about each other. Instead, the participants have to work through the tensions of the relationship (the dialectic) while they learn and group themselves and a parties in a relationships. At times the relationships is very open and sharing. Other time, one or both parties to the relationship need their space, or have other concerns, and the relationship is less open. The theory posits that these cycles occur throughout the life of the relationship as the persons try to balance their needs for privacy and open relationship.

    Hush, you. I, for one, am thoroughly entertained and informed by threads such as this.

    If this was true I wouldn't have so much trouble convincing people that I am my 17 year old daughter's mother.

    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Exactly.

    I think you were talking specifically of issues surrounding content (which doesn't mean that you're saying context is irrelevant) in your original post that MLF quoted. Which, then, got misinterpreted to mean that "aha, it's only about content, and given this only, it's not been consistent".

    I don't know which parallel reality some of these members have been residing in where they think that the moderation of this forum is only in regards to the content of the posts, and not the context (posting history). Hint: usernames. The content of one's post is tied to their unique, individual identity on this forum. Otherwise, we'd all be undifferentiated "guests" posting, if it was simply about content, without any relevance to the context.

    As I said previously, the moderation of the forum is about content and context.

    The amount of biased wound-licking popping out in this thread, and then "justified" through agreement with others in the same boat, is quite hilarious to watch.

    You're all under-moderated.

    What's interesting in that regard is I notice that I try not to give people "official" warnings, just brief PMs or nudges to knock something out. But you have gotten me wondering if it would be clearer to give the official warning so there's no confusion about the purpose of the communication. The more official warnings a person has, the more likely the next offense will result in an infraction and infractions accumulated within a certain amount of time lead to bans.

    What "our way or the highway" is there? Go look through the official decrees forum and feedback forum and see how often major forum changes have ALWAYS been put forth before members as a referendum. We have always solicited member input as far as major directional changes to the forum, hell to be honest, most of the forums I go to don't even have a "Feedback" section. Whenever a thread like this one occurs, it's always kept open and members freely respond however they see fit.

    If I wanted to overmoderate I would've thrown this very thread in the Graveyard and locked it so no one could respond. You're standing on the very platform that allows you to deride how moderation occurs.

    I don't believe there is overmoderation at this forum. There are people who don't like any moderation because they hold the juvenile mindset of they should be able to say whatever they want, when they want to do it. There are also very specific and vocal members who have been moderated spewing sour grapes because they've been reprimanded.
    I don't know why you can't just stick to the issues instead of making everything personal. The fact that aphrodite has no black marks to her name gives her (according to your own standard) more credibility, so why are you questioning her motives? Every time someone expresses dissent you judge and attack the person, rather than examining what they have to say. Then you get your own back at the earliest opportunity.

    Watch your back, aphrodite. Constructive criticism is seldom taken in the spirit in which it is given.

    I'll add inferior Fe to the wrinkly list actually.
