That was me. I'm leaving in protest to previous bannings and overbearing moderation practices. Funny how the creative people are being driven off, isn't it? MDC has been a wonderful resource for me, but I just can't take the crap anymore. I just came in to close my member account. Selena ( dubtex@mail.com )
The more I explain here, the faster this thread will go away, and I want my smilies back. But yes, I stand by that description. I'm sure they're prefectly nice to most folks, but the way they treat the "chosen few" is simply intolerable to me.
I made them back in April. As of today, I am withdrawing my permission for MDC to use them. It has to do with emotionally abusive moderation practices. I will be leaving MDC, but I want them to stop using the things I created before I go.
Check your PMs.

yep. straight in the tank :-) it definitely cleans well. I have found a few stains/smells that are resistant. It depends on what my kid has been eating. Go-gurt-colored poo-stains and asparagus-scented pee-smell do not respond to the homemade oxyclean variations.

Velcromom! I'm desperately seeking something to use on my kids' hair! Some of the gunk they get in their hair *needs* soap to get it back out But shampoo always leads to irritation for their skin and my respiratory tract. I'm always looking for new ideas
Argh! I suppose I should be grateful that they allow parent referrals at all, eh? The form we have to submit has a checklist of 17 "behaviors" like advanced vocabulary, analogy-use, imagination... and a 4 point ranking. If you indicate a 3 or a 4 on any of these items, you're supposed to provide examples. The thing is, I am so not an observant detail person... I *know* my kid is not "typical" because of the shock that I get when I deal with her age-peers. I know...
[Quote: eilonwy] Remember a few months ago when I was going to that book discussion group for SENG? Well, I was given an article which totally changed my thinking about mental illness and giftedness. I'm sure that you've come across it; the gist of the article was that the more highly gifted a given individual is, the more likely they are to appear to be mentally ill, particularly in childhood when they're often overwhelemed by all of the information which they take in...
