    Sharing PM's is against the rules. Did Melissa say she was reporting it? No. She was just telling Bonita what was against the rules as that was WHAT was asked.

    I have gotten the same PM's before from people who don't post on this board because they will be attacked. Especially on controversial subjects. There have been many debates when it is just one person(usually me) or just a few with a dissenting view and it is very difficult keeping up sometimes when you have 10 or more posters on the other side of the debate. Especially when you start getting called a bigot or other names for your views.

    That's fine. I've had it myself. We probably all have.

    I just don't think their opinions should weigh in on how regular posters on this board feel the posting should be handled. That's it.

    And if they are too "afraid" to post here I'm sure they don't want people to know they are PM'ing others saying they agree. Right?

    Well I'm pretty sure no one can read my mind and I didn't post any names so how would other people know?

    I think it's kind of funny to show off about groupie PM's.

    Gloria~really. I'm fairly sure it's just best to keep it a general rule to not share it so that Missy and other admin's don't have to police who is sharing w/no names and whatever other "nit pick" thing you hate.

    So I don't care about what you just shared and I'm almost 100% certain Melissa doesn't either. Bonita asked a question and it was answered.

    I have never partaken in a debate board forum anywhere on the internet where there wasn't 'that group' of people who don't post because they are afraid of being attacked. Seems pretty normal to me.

    I never said anywhere what was in a PM, just that I have received them before in a very general way. I agree that this is getting ridiculous.

    It is getting ridiculous. I never said you shared anything. I said that sharing info from a PM is against the rules and Gloria went off on how we can't read her mind etc.

    We have established rules now. I think it might be best we all move on.

    Thank you. I really did my best there and I think it's a place where I really gained a lot of respect for many of the members who are still participating today.

    I do think that your guidelines will be helpful, if it does nothing more than causing a pause before a person hits reply.

    And I agree also that it is impossible to police intent. That is why we are hashing things out in words. At least that is why I am. I'd like to be clear, civil and concise.

    I am willing to give it a go.

    And RiverGallery, I did "call you out." And I actually trust that you did hear my intent. It wasn't to be rude or mean, it was to illustrate a point.

    I do respect you ladies. I think that there is so much to talk about and 'straw-men" arguments were (way back in the day, I know) discouraged. The ineffable "They say or They think" arguments that are outside of the point do not bring greater clarity. And from what I've seen, bring a lot of animosity.

    Let's hash some **** out. Sometimes I will join in on sensitive topics. Heck, I'll post some.

    All my best, Bunnyfufu
