Am I going crazy? Did something just disappear in front of my eyes? I think the whole thing is hysterical, what world hungers or wars are you causing with posting your website? :D
Do you promise to come back as someone else when you get booted off? :D

I haven't been spanked at all, not even a little whip on the bum for me. Why? Have you? :D

.....really and truly, if they count posting something on the wrong forum a strike, then I don't give a fiddler's %^&*% if I'm knocked off the boards!!!

The moderators are giving people a "strike" each time they break a rule -- off topic posts on the wrong board, self-promotion, abusive posts..... after you get three strikes, I believe you're no longer allowed to use the boards.

I think you ought to be an advocate for a living if you are not one already! I agree entirely. If I were the appeal court, your plea would be heard and the sentence revoked.The moderators have applied a penalty which, by the rules they themselves established, does not fit the crime. I agree, Redheron's strikes ought to be removed. They might now add "advertising your own business" to their list of "strikable" offences, but since they promised not to apply their code retroactively, the Birdie should have a clean slate.

I absolutely agree. The only way her post should have been deleted is if she would have said "here is my website you filthy #@%^^&*^% "!!!!!!

I beg to differ. A few of us are relentlessly mature and even consistently civilized. Witness: suzieg. There are others too, but at the risk of offending any of my pals, I will not attempt to write a list. Anyway, there may well be a myriad of other reasons my idea won't work, so you may ultimately be correct but just for the wrong reasons!

It's too bad that we need any moderating at all. Nobody should need to be scolded or awarded a strike for bad behaviour.

Jody, you say that people aren't allowed to use the boards for self-promotion -- yet you allow MamboGirl to use the boards to promote and even sell her prints. Why is there a double-standard?? Either everyone can or everyone can't.

I know you have the best intentions, but I think your idea is horrible.
Although this is something they practice on other forums, I don't think this place could handle that, it's not mature enough.

I think that it would be helpful to the forum and the moderators, if there were member moderators appointed, who could delete any hostile posts. I can think of a few members who have been consistently even tempered and are undoubtedly fair minded. (No, not me, I know). If the member moderators were anonymous, they could delete at will, answer only to J&J and not be subjected to harassment or threats. What do you all think?

I don't really know what's been going on lately, but I have noticed at least one person who was a frequent contributor who has disappeared (besides Artsy). And of course, it sucks that Artsy felt the need to leave the boards.

I personally find that any time you get a bunch of females all together in one place at one time, you're bound to get infighting. (I think it's OK for me to say that, seeing as I'm a girl!!) I don't know why, but it just happens,

Actually, today I'm posting exactly what I'm thinking, whether it's the wrong stuff or not!! I don't think anyone should be getting "strikes" for saying what's on their mind or trying to help other people out (whehter or not it's construed as self-promotion).

How come MamboGirl can sell her prints though the boards, but you get booted off for posting a link to your web site in response to a request for the information??

I suspect your first strike came after you posted the message about looking for someone to work in your store?? (I noticed that message thread disappeared). Which I thought was a very kind and considerate thing for you to do.

I think your insight and advice have been very beneficial and welcome additons to the boards. I hope they don't boot you off for good.

If you are kicked off the boards, a darkness will come and spread........darkness that can be felt for many people who need your help. I really and truly hope this doesn't happen :(

I'd love to in fact, rather than wathing the two of you trying to lead each other. It will end in bruised egos I'm sure.
But I'm on a mac, and so is red. Dreamer, she gave you a clue, have another sip of coffee and go from there.

I posed the question in Tech, because it's seems 'unfair' to me.

Aan is the one to help, but selfishly she will not. You need to open your MSN hotmail account, then go to the MSN album site and try to enter the chat. IF at that point, you are asked to download something, it will be called "MSN chat" something or other. Gee, I am no technophile...

Can you go to "chat"? Sorry about the rhyme, trying to save time.
