Do you have an example?

We do our best, but we never promise to get everything without the help of our members.


Yes I do, thanks for asking. I hit the alert, I emailed the mod who deleted my post, AND I made a regular idiot out of myself at the post itself trying to get clarification. Haven't heard a word and I did all this within a few minutes of it being deleted at least 2 hours ago. Here it is:

You were trying to get a member to reveal his/her sexuality. I would think an off topic post tag is the least of what you'd get. That's not something we do here.

Ok, I accept that. My questinn, and I brought this up before, is it ok for members to flame and bait a persons spiritual beliefs? How can asking if someone is homosexual be considered an offense, but someone saying God originally intended for us to have "tranny sex" and allude to Jesus being a homosexual be ok?

EXCUSE me, but SO asked me for an example.

I asked you for examples of posts that should have been removed, and have not.

As it is, your post had no purpose in a civilized discussion environment. I think the mod who removed it was very generous in giving you wide benefit of the doubt to retain your posting status here on ATS.

off-topic post removed to prevent thread-drift

Did you read the post I alerted? Is it ok to say things like "God meant for us to have tranny sex" -- I am not trying to be obstinate, I want to know what is acceptable and what is not.

Yes I did. You alerted us to this post in the Conspiracies in Religion forum (what does that have to do with the subject of this thread?) In context, it's an absolutely fine and relevant comment.




I am not trying to be obstinate,

You've got me fooled.

Well that's what I needed to know. It sure took some wrangling though.

What about this thread? It seems like it is a violation of the new rule.

The date of creation and last post are well before the date and time of this announcement.

Is this what we're going to do now? Try to find threads that we think should be deleted to try and "catch" the mods on this?

Come on people. We're better than this.

Just accept the rules and follow them. No one is trying to silence liberals or conservatives here. We are trying to silence idiots for lack of a better word.

Be respectful, discuss the issues, and you'll be fine.

No conspiracy there.

They (the campaigners from the two sides) are now making generous use of the ATS-complaint functions to try to sting at each other.


I wish they´d just relax a bit. Its always wiser to point out issues (like in your recent thread on McCain and Education) than being hell-bent on destroying others.

nyk,

I didn't "try" to find this thread. It was listed under the Conspiracy forum along with the other threads. I have no problem with the site having rules. We were asked to point out threads that are in violation of the new rule. I did as was requested.

Agreed.

As far as I'm concerned, discussion of policy that you disagree with is a much more effective way to "destroy" a candidate than bickering and mudslinging.

It seems some don't feel that way though.

Pity.

Thank you so much, hopefully ATS can get back to being a fact finding forum for all discussions instead of a political campaign, I swear if I see one more person post Matt D. bitiching or John M. postering Im going to puck and never come back... We have to have a refugee and Im glad to see ATS take a stand on this issue,

I agree that the rules are needed but why is the MSNBC sidebar still present on some of these ATS pages?
How often do they report based rumors, lies and innuendo?
I say make it completely unbiased across the board.

Besides, what happens when the race starts getting ugly and both candidates start the official mudslinging?

The new rules will keep us from commenting and the candidate will get away with it.

I'm not concerned.

When the candidates start slinging mud, I'll stick to my guns and keep discussing their politics.

Does anyone see how biased this is?

For over 7 years President Bush has been bashed endlessly here on ATS.

Then here comes Barack Hussein Obama, and all of a sudden we have to make major changes.

Who are we protecting here?

I will do my best to abide by the new rules, but I can't help but see the hipocracy.

I agree. What are people afraid of? Truth? On THIS site?
Wow.
