    I'm disapointed that the thread was poofed

    I'm not sure why that thread was poofed, was it because so much of it could be construed as personal attacks?

    Without naming names, we had somebody calling somebody out for calling somebody out for calling somebody out for doing something that didn't seem very nice. 

    So many people say they want a kinder, gentler blog, but I'm not sure that can happen if we're not allowed to point out when somebody is misbehaving.  Unfortunately, that can result in personal attacks, and I don't know how to manage that.  But I don't think deleting productive conversations is ever the answer. 

    I'm not sure if by not naming names, I'm not making personal attacks, but I'll continue in that vein.  Vain?  Maybe.  Somebody called out some popular people for what was perceived as bd behavior.  Right or wrong, I'm certain that somebody wasn't acting maliciously; I'm certain that person was only trying to do what he/she though was right (kind of like a hall monitor.) That took courage, and I applaud him/her for that.

    Mcrobbers- At this point I think the thread needed to be deleted. People have some very strong feelings about everything that happened and they are all entitled to that but it seemed to be getting out of hand. I think the original idea was great but I think it was becoming to large and singling out people when the original thread was about not engaging.

    But I do agree, that we should be able to call people out on bad behavior or taking things to strongly. I don't like anyone being ganged up on, not anyone :-(

    Unfortunately I was at lunch when the thread was deleted so after my last post I have no idea what was said but like I said before, no one will win in these things because many people have met in real life and have histories that may be negative or positive :-)

    McB -- It's time to move on. I said on Friday that I would probably remove the threads, and today I did. A new round of personal attacks was starting up.
       Let's put it to rest, folks.

    You can make a point without sinking to the levels that occur on the Sox forum where Yank and Sawx fans live to bash each other. But that is part of the appeal of the rivalry and forum.

    This forum - not so much.

    However, anyone here who does feel the need to go off, please do so on me. I can handle it and everyone else's feelings will be spared. I know I am new here (d*mn Yoga and Veronica), but do insert my name in where you would have put someone else's.

    Jesseyeric, you should join the LL conversations too, as well as the forums.  New voices are always welcome.

    Thanks for deleting it, Minnie.
    As one of the people who was called out for supposedly bad behavior, I'm tired of the merry-go-round of what was right to do and what was wrong to do-- no one is going to change their opinion on this subject- it's best just to drop it, which is what I intend to do. I hope everyone has a better week this week.

    Of course you're disappointed the thread was poofed. This dead horse was still twitching on Friday. Some of you are still trying to flog a little more life out of it...

    I wonder if the thread being poofed had anything to do with the mods performance being called out on a few occasions. He performed worse throughout this ordeal than the Pats did this weekend. Just saying.

    And what is up with the censorship anyway? I understand censoring the LL blog, but the forums now too? I thought they were for just this type of thing.

    I didn't have time to check the rest of heaveyblaster's thread that was deleted after I posted my comment when I said I should be named after a saint.  Did I get any votes of approval for being called Saint Veronica?

    jessey, You know you enjoy being here with us as we (I) enjoy your comments & company.

    McBostonrob, I want to say that as time goes on, I like & respect you more. 

    You always stay true to yourself. You're never wishy-washy. You say what you mean without trying to impress anyone or go along with the crowd or a favorite poster to be popular. 

    You're not phony. You don't act cute or try to be funny to win people's  approval or over-compliment women with insincere flattery or act like a macho idiot to win them over. 

    I always appreciate your comments whether I agree with you or not as I know you're being genuine & your opinions are well thought out & heartfelt.

    I just felt like saying this & no, I'm not drinking. 

    Just sayin'.

    P.S. I agree with Marge.

    Two cent: You have to have a treat in your hand for them to listen. Let them smell your hand first, so they know the treat is there. Then make eye contact and hold it. Use calm, assertive energy. Then tell the community to not engage.

    If they don't listen, find a stout object and beat them about the head and shoulders, sharply and without mercy, for 2-3 minutes. Repeat until a sense of futility sets in. (Futility on your part, that is...)

    [QUOTE]Well I was perusing the forums this morning (while drinking coffee) read this and see a post with my name in it.  Not sure what I did.  So I'm just going to keep drinking my coffee. Hey did we ever get the results of the LL Governor's race?  I wasn't happy with the real results so I'm hoping for more acceptable LL results.  Although I liked all the choices so I'm sure I'll be happy with the results.
