The Vibe of MDC right now - Page 5

post #81 of 86

I saw a post that I flagged immediately as an obvious violation of the User Agreement, not to mention norms of decency, without reading the rest of the thread. Two posts down, lo and behold, I see a post from you, the main site moderator telling the person that he's not welcome to post this on the site. 

 

Are you as the moderator not allowed to delete posts from trolls now under the new policy?

I usually contact a member who has flagged a post that we felt was acceptable to explain why. So if you ever report a post and nothing is done feel free to PM me to ask about it.

I am allowed to and will do so. But one of the complaints we received from the community about our moderation approach is that posts go "poof" when we address thread issues, and they can't see what happened and why it was inappropriate. So we moderate within the thread and remove posts after members have had time to see everything and the moderation post.

Thanks, I appreciate this stance.  It seems more respectful to the members here.

Just saw this, I hadn't been on in a looong time and just recentley came back.  IMO I am glad to have MDC.  I came here when I could not produce milk, NONE, and I was being judged in my community for bottle feeding, I got so much support here.  When my dc were in diapers I loved talking about my new cd, or laugh about my horribley sewn diapers, ddc.....etc.....  I always loved to lurk on ppd forum because I suffered horribly from it, and my dc needed me and I was "absent".  But I did get help and it was wonderful for me and my dc.  As far as moderation I like the looser moderation.  Unless something is OUTRAGEOUS, I think people should be able to come here for advice etc, But I also agree that people shouldn't be promoting spanking, cio, or any kind of abuse!!!!!

So to admins THANKS it must be very difficult to have to deal with a forum.
