Seems to me that Dr. mom has way too much power on this website. What happened to freedom of speech. WE SHALL REVOLT, if we are not given a voice on this thread. GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH :laugh:

First, I want to know how that thread violates the terms of service. Second, I want to know how DRMOM moderated on a forum that isn't her domain. What happened to Henna?

I always thought Dr. Mom was the one to whom any complaints go when ppl click on the "report this post to a moderator" thingy (does that still exist in this new incarnation of SDN?), and that's why she's seen closing down so many threads. But that's just my guess! :confused:

P.S. I wasn't the one who reported that thread, if anyone even did. Just tryin' to hash things out.

Yeah I think that report post to moderator thing is still around... The little triangle sign next to the karma/mojo/reputation/libido thing whatever it is. :D

Supermoderators cover all of the forums and assist the individual forum moderators.

The thread in question singled out a single user in a poll about banning them. It is our standard procedure to close threads like this.


Here is an appropriate portion of the TOS:

Topics of Discussion

While these discussion forums encourage a wide range of opinions, please keep your posts focused on the topic of the forum in which you are submitting your message. Each forum has a different topic, so what is appropriate in one forum or thread may not be appropriate in another. Generally speaking, however, profanity, vulgar language, and personal attacks are not acceptable in any forum.




I hope that answers your questions. Feel free to PM me if you have others.

Reported threads from predent forum do come to my attention, I didnt get any report on that thread.
Anyways, personal attacks are a TOS violation so please don't single users out :)

BTW, Dr Mom is a very pretty "she". :)

How are words a personal attack on someone. Not like words can physically harm someone. Much like the FCC, Dr mom has again way too much power. Where do we draw the line in the sand? Obviously if I offend Dr. Mom, he or she is just going to erase my comments.

In all honesty, the poll did not have any personal attacks in general per se. But Lets get real, the dude was an a hole, end of story.

Stickin it to the MAN

OK, I have NO idea what thread she killed on you, and don't care.

This site is free to us because of the donations of the advertisers. They get annoyed because they're being associated with words or ideas they don't like, they'll pull out. This is NOT government censorship, it's business.

If you don't like the TOS, then start your own web site. Or, change the TOS. Or become a moderator yourself.

But please don't get yourself all pumped up with fatuous appeals against censorship. It's not the Government thats doing it, and thats what the first Amendment is about "Congress shall make no law...."

What "free speach" means is that while the government can't pull you off your soapbox, the government isn't required to give you a soapbox, either.
