In the wake of the many moved and closed threads, I'd like to know how you feel about having to enforce the User Agreement as it stands.

I'd also like to know if there is any forum in which it is appropriate to have an open discussion about the User Agreement.

I am moving this to Q&S where this discussion can be hosted. I will post my thoughts later, trying to get ready to head out.

And a discussion about how the User Agreement has changed over the years....

What about the user agreement do you want to talk about?

Interesting...

I wonder who the offended parties are? Was it voiced or were they too offended to speak directly to particular threads/posters?

A lot of things and attitudes offend me so I don't visit those forums or threads. I mean, seriously, I get really offended by pedestals and high horses... so I just :

Well, I have to say that this is HUGELY disappointing to me. I have always enjoyed MANY of the forums here, and TAO is a place to just that, "TALK AMONGST OURSELVES". I'm not advocating unmoderation, or violating the user agreement, but I have seen many things lately that have been moved unneccesarily, IMO. I think that either the user agreement should change, because it seems that this place is getting VERY controlling. Or the "offending parties" (and I mean from the MODs point of view, because I certainly was not offended), should go start their own forum. And then PM me here when you do.

I have about had it with all this foolishness. I'm sick with the flu, so this is my last post for a few days. I won't be replying.

I'm very sad to see it come to this, and I hope it can be resolved without a lot of blows. But this is just ridiculous!

Gee, I get offended on pretty much a daily basis on some of the stuff here (and it never has any sexuality or cursing) but I don't go complaining about it. I just oull them off their high horse like tricia told me to do.
