With all due respect, if you were the first person to comment on the article I may have done as you suggested, but you weren't. It may seem strange, but I don't actually have to sit here and tolerate a seemingly endless stream of first-time posters being rude to me, my writers or other commenters here. You censored yourself by being needlessly aggressive which resulted in moderation.Moderator: You know, I was going to let this comment stand but I'm past the point where I'm going to tolerate rudeness and name-calling. If you want to object to the article or the concepts around it, fine, but you will be civil, or you will get off this website.
Fair enough. I own a board too and I know how hard it is to keep a lid on things.
I expected a bad word filter would edit what I wrote in my second post.
What I see now is rather than remove a single word you have deleted one post and removed everything I have written from another. Your board, your rules, but I'll call you out for censoring a contrary opinion. Not at all what I would have done over at my place. I would have done this:
< uncivil word removed>
<Opinions need to be civil at all times or membership on this board may be terminated>
With no other editing.
My point is this: If you treat your members with respect, as above, they will return it many times over. OTOH when you treat people as you have here -- censoring their opinions -- you earn no respect at all.
You are more than welcome to put your original point back in if you want, sans rudeness. If I was really trying to censor anybody, this thread would look significantly different.
