I must have blinked and missed a whole whack of "extreme right or left views". I actually thought we had some "healthy conversation" going on. Most of us are not thin-skinned and enjoy the repartee. If one or the other strays, a subtle or terse tongue lashing is quick to follow. <br>As previously requested - please advise the impetus of your "scolding" .<br><br><br><br>
Hey Sean, couldn't you always ask to have your user and all its posts erased? Then you could come back on as another handle. I doubt your students would be diligent enough to find you.<br><br>We are what we repeatedly do. -Aristotle

even without my twerpy rationale, i tend to agree with stan about this particular forum outliving its purpose. then again, i was always against creating a separate politix forum.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
i could. i think it would be much easier to just delete the few posts here that contain my last name. if i was concerned enough, i'd probably have done that. <br><br>i don't really wish for everyone to lose their posts. i'd much rather see this forum just combined with the lounge.<br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
So, then what Sean? Are we "allowed" to post political topics in the Lounge or will there be whining again about that? I'd prefer to have it all in one forum anyway, but I do remember many forum members asked to have us banished here to the lonely Soapbox. <br><br>
No, I don't want or need to be that specific. I hate any form of censorship within reason. I have just been getting a larger than usual number of complaints over the past month or so, and just want to ask you ya'll take it easy. Debate is good. Debate is needed. But let's try to keep it civil, OK? I think that is pretty reasonable.. <br><br>
Are these complaints perhaps from forum members that the Mod outed? Who else is there but the people left posting here, this has been a small group to begin with?<br><br><br>The Lounge is just fine to discuss politically relevant topics... you'll just upset those people who are currently glad it all happens here.<br><br><br>
