To my knowledge (which I'll admit is not extensive) what they are doing at TWWS as far as MDC goes is not much different than me talking about stuff I've read on MDC to my husband. Of course I don't cut and paste and no one can log in to see what I've said, but it's pretty much the same thing...
No…it's like going to a meeting, discussing ideas with people at that meeting, and then some of those people going to another meeting and dissing the people in the first meeting and their ideas. This goes on entirely behind peoples backs, and over and over.
The bolded is also very relevant. The snarking is posted on a public forum, which many posters (even up to today) were unaware existed. You want to complain about me to your hubby , friend or even in a pm (as long as it does not morph into a smear campaign) - go for it. That is private. Posting crap about people on a public board (while simultaneously holding a conversation the person assumes to be in good faith here) crosses a line.
If you think that is ok there is not much more I can say.
