Generally speak we don't truly know our limits until they've been exceeded.

Could you PM a few of us who have "stirred things up" in a bad way? I little friendly feed back?

Tim ROCKS!!! He does a great job with the technical part of things on this site and then displays his wisdom and grace through the personnel part of the forum. I can seriously say that we have an excellent webmaster.

racial remarks ( fried chicken) trailer park( what people in trailers are less educated?) these post are ok and my post sounding off on a nimby is pulled? Brain is the gas starting to get to you? While I know DG is joking, many others probably don't. I am starting to think chas is running this forum. Tim, no disrespect you do a good job just not grasping your choice of pulled post versus ones that are allowed to stay.

We have the right to voice our opinion here, we just need to watch the language used when voicing our thoughts. I agree, Loomis, that some may not know that DG1 is joking and could take offense. Good point.

I don't believe that this thread needs much more development - we all just need to move on and practice what the thread talked about. Our efforts require unity - we already know that a house divided against itself will fall. And unity doesn't mean uniformity. We do have a common cause, let's stick with it.

Oh, no disrespect taken! I totally understand your point, and the gist of it is this: I receive a complaint about a post, I look at the post and if it seems to cross a line then I pull it. And there have been times that when I pulled one post, I went back through the thread and pulled others at the same time, even if they weren't directly complained about. But that has been an imperfect science, for sure.

I know that this has been a far from perfect, and possibly (probably?) unfair way of doing this because I know some are overlooked and others aren't, but I do have a limited amount of bandwidth during the day so I have to rely on other people's eyes on the postings.

And szigeti: I guess I could, but then I start to squirm a bit because I don't want to be the "moral judge" of the forums - the last thing I want to do is PM people saying "Watch your tone please". Seems to me that that could piss people off right quick. How about this: if I pull a post, I'll PM the author to let you know why I pulled it. Would that work?

And DG1 - watch your tone please :D

We surely don't want that, people are pissed enough already :D

I've had no idea people's posts were being pulled? I don't want to be banned or overly PC , beating around tbe bush.

I guess if I use Loomis as my ethical role model I'll be OK :shock:
