    Okay Missy, that's fine. I hope you weighted the input from the ten or twelve of us that actually keep this board active more heavily than those who may possibly never participate here ever but I can accept your decision. If the same thing keeps happening, labeled or not....I don't ignore much on these threads but im pretty sure I can handle my own using simple debate tactics that are within the rules...just makes debating more of an effort to deal with this stuff regularly. If I get tired of it, I'll take a break from this place. Won't be the first time.

    Political leanings are a sensitive topic? I'm super confused. Honestly confused as to how one labels political leanings. I'm an independent- how do I label anything?

    Also, maybe its just me, but I couldn't really care less how someone who isn't a member feels about debates that they don't participate in.

    and including one from someone not a member but that follows the debates


    and I think that it is odd that they should have valued input into how debates that they don't participate in are run.

    Ok -
    #1 - not sure why everyone else is so upset.. I was the one "called out" at the beginning of this thread.
    #2 - Our society doesn't keep topics in bubbles and thus debate topics will by very nature overlap.
    #3 - if a topic wasn't introduced by Bonita.. not sure why the person(s) introducing it have a right to be upset when she comments on it.

    -- I think the rules are great, will save the feelings of those not wanting to read certain things, and allow them to still contribute to the debate.--

    Last I heard this was a FREE board. Why should Missy have to answer to anyone on how she chooses to make her decisions? It could very well be someone who doesn't participate on the debate board but is part of admin.

    She said the person wasn't a mbr. Admin would be a member.

    Which means someone who is not registered and is following our debates and decided to say something. Creepy.

    Seriously you don't think hundreds of people follow our debates that aren't members? I just now checked and it shows 83 people viewing the board that aren't members. If that concerns you maybe you shouldn't be posting here.

    I think it's a little creepy too, but funny. Hello, gawkers!

    Agreed- it isn't a private board.

    Gloria. I'm not stupid. I think it's creepy that they are not members, follow us and then feel it's appropriate to PM Missy's their opinion. I'm sorry. That's weird.

    I read some boards that I love (like GOMI, pure hilarity) but never comment there/am not a member because I'm not witty enough and don't have enough time to get invested. That said I can't imagine messaging with the site owner as a non participant feeling as though I had valuable insight to contribute. I don't know. I guess I'm arrogant but not delusional. Or something.
