Are we allowed to report posters? I feel as though certain posters have crossed the line with their recent post gone from internet crankiness to making threats. Perhaps a reminder from you of appropriate behavior is needed.

Certain names in this Submission have been deleted to protect the "snarky"... however, most of you free-thinkers know who you are. To the poster, I must respectfully admit ISYN does not condone censorship.

I have had some of my comments here deleted.

The blog owners have the right to post whatever they want to and delete anything they want to. This blog is pretty successful, so they must be doing something right.

I find that if I am getting frustrated or offended by certain posters, I just take a break. Try not to take things so personally. Remember that nobody here really knows anyone else. Personal remarks should not really offend people, considering the source.

The only comments that get removed are ones that threaten others, are racist, or anonymous.

All others stand.

BTW m... good advice in your last paragraph. ;-)

Kudos to all the posters who post pics in their profiles. I think these are the legit posts because these people do not hide behind monikers and say things they would NEVER say to anyone in real life.

You mentioned that you delete racist comments, good for you! What about homophobic comments? I have never seen any on ISYN, but I hope that is because you delete them too :)

GayNanny,

Yes, they are also deleted... thankfully most here are very tolerant and I can only remember ever having to delete a couple of racist/homophobic comments.

I'm thankful for the censorship. In recent posting people were called "Freaks" and told they needed "more training" in being a Nanny or that the person didn't care about "being judgemental".

I came to this blog recently as a source of encouragement and support- if it weren't for the majority being thoughtfult people- I probably wouldn't have stayed here long.

Anon: That is true, however I am pretty sure the people on here who post pics are using their real pictures.

I personally feel that people who resort to attacking other posters need to take some time away from the internet to grow up. Saying that someone is "retarded" for agreeing with someone elses opinion on any subject is wrong. I really hope that I don't ever see that again.

Phoenix,

Lately, some comments have gone too far... one from a poster about your family was truly outrageous and that was quickly removed. I had my fair share of flame wars on ISYN when I first came here to comment (under another moniker) and you need a thick skin to survive, but there's a difference between name-calling and pure cruelty.

Every comment Readers make, even the ones you personally delete, go to my mailbox. I try my best to moderate because I get a minimum of a dozen spam per day. Most, but not all, is filtered.

Phoenix said...

LOL MPP I didn't know that the ones I delete go to your mailbox. I usually delete my posts when I spell something wrong to correct it. Even if it's one word. Shall I say paranoid about people finding the typo....

Thanks for deleting some comments. I actually didn't read the one about my family but I can certaintly speculate. Yes, we should all take this as a learning lesson about being nice.

I appreciate how much work you do for the blog to keep it up and running.

I would find it incredibly boring if everyone on this blog had the same opinion on everything and agreed about everything. It would make me leave ASAP.

I love to read this blog because of the many differences of opinions.
