Not everyone likes that but that is just how we roll. We want people to talk like they are in the same room, or are even in one another's home. If I have 500 people in my house for a Pampered Chef party or something I am not generally going to pick a fight with them,...

We could still have the membership requirements so that only people who have shown themselves to be decent MDC citizens would be...
First of all, I want to thank all the moderators, past and present, yours is the job that is long and hard and never recognized until it is too late.

Poor mama...
