Your praise for my ramblings is such an ego boost, you don't even know!

I'm also seriously reconsidering my "eh, whatever, the Say It thread is my happy place" stance on the boards, given that half the time you'll never know if someone took the dare anyway. Also, no joke, I had already planned on PMing you to find out if/where you were going because I am addicted to your food posts/pictures. There might've been a side plan to beg you to start a blog if you didn't find a new forum to put them on. Just a little one.

I am often quite flummoxed by NC.
I belong to forums with no censorship and no moderation and they are so different than here. Not better, not worse, just different. Sometimes people say the most awful things. People fight. People get irate. People call each other names. People aren't politically correct. People quit. People come back. People ignore. People get over it. With no policing or censoring.
Sometimes I just have to shake my head and shrug back here at the ranch.

I am so completely confused.

can someone pm me?
is that allowed?

I'm hoping this is just an initial overreaction.
censoring asterisks is just beyond ridiculous. that is censoring censorship.

QFT.

If I can make sense of what's going on, I'll definitely pm you to fill you in! It's so hard figuring out past events when things get deleted, though. I need my records, dangit!

God, I hope there's not also pm moderation.

Well, to be fair, ducky wrote the whole word with a single asterisk in place of the u.
I just still think that it's completely trivial to moderate foul language, of all things, and especially since it's not directed at anyone!

Aww, even though you don't post as much as I'd certainly like, I'll definitely miss seeing you on the boards! And yeah, the caps thing is so odd and annoying!
Hmm, I've been considering a tumblr. Maybe I should look further into it.

Do you get a PM if a post is deleted with the reason why?

I've been totally out of all of this and either I didn't hit submit on my post or it was deleted.

It was a (very) vague vent directed at my nutjob sister that nobody but me would have understood. Just three words and nothing profane.

Me, too. I can't figure out half (or more) of what's been going on.. Mostly, I sorry to see that some members have left and others are considering doing so.

I'm just annoyed that I waited to read all of the Say It thread before going to continue the TM thread that now its too late.

okay from what I can gather:

a thread was made on too much moderation. moderators deleted it. I will let that speak for itself.

WilE and RCW had another public disagreement(?) that got deleted(?). RCW was forced to take down her SIGGY CENSORED. Unclear on WilE's punishment.

someone swore (at an unrelated situation, not at anyone directly), but with an asterisk replacing one letter, which has always been alright. the post was deleted and quoted to be made an example of.

people are getting angry and frustrated --> more people are feeling comfortable chiming in long-held disagreements with the moderation --> moderators are allowing no room for discussion --> people want to discuss MORE --> more anger and frustration, general antagonistic feeling at being treated like bratty children.

And I still can't believe my post was deleted.

I'm Switzerland and I got deleted.

whatever. I like to try to stay out of dramaz. I would like the moderators to know that I'm not trying to start a revolt or something. I understand that when people start venting about moderation, it encourages a lot of negative energy with no real solutions to be found. If you have new guidelines, then you are allowed to enforce them.

I just think it's being handled poorly.

Saria, if you get a tumblr shoot me a pm. There needs to be someone else who understands my love of Korra.

Ppl leaving and all of this over-censoring sucks. It's depressing reading how unhappy ppl are with the site now.

I don't know, but before today I figured I'm too lazy to start over and find another board. Now I'm not so sure. I had planned on PM'ing you to know if you have any blogs because I NEED YOUR RAMBLINGS IN MY LIFE!!!
Saria, please don't leave without contacting me - I'd love to stay in touch.

Honest question, though...I write "what the eff" (written just like that) often. I never actually say or write the word. Is that no longer allowed either?
