Peggy posted this statement at the top of the forum:
There is so much happening and sometimes we wish we could just turn over everything to you guys and let you all hash out how best to deal with it all. No offense intended by that statement. It just seems literally impossible to please everyone or should I say, impossible not to have somebody mad at us at all times. Regardless of how we choose to handle things, there is always push back and complaints. ALWAYS. And I'm not taking away from the seriousness of what happened with this particular event, as evidenced by the fact that we are having this discussion.
My point is that just because things aren't dealt with in the manner that people wish, demand or expect, in the exact timetable that they wish, demand or expect does not mean that A) admin doesn't listen or B) that they don't care.
Bolding mine because this makes me very mad (and forgive my forum crashing). Yes, if Mothering would post a strong statement on the front page condemning homophobia and bigotry I guess that would make homophobes and bigots mad. Is this the intended audience for MDC? Otherwise I do not understand why it is such a complicated question whether a forum wide apology is appropriate.
That's not at all what I meant. I apologize if that's the message you took from what I said.
