I resent the fact that one of you put up on your website that there was a great discussion going on over here, just to get more people here to support your opinion. ( Geez, the second post of one of your "followers" was to ask how to work the "ignore" list!)
Will someone please tell me when this happened and what the subject was so that I may look it up in the archives? I subscribe to the TCS list and have not seen anyone mention these boards.
|You don't contribute to the mothering boards in any other way except to lecture on TCS. You share nothing of yourselves. Hell, we don't even know if you HAVE children!
That is a matter of opinion. I believe that many of the TCS posts have been valuable contributions to the mothering boards. I have been able to take what works for me and leave the rest. Is that so difficult? TCS posters share a lot, they just don't do it in the way in which we are accustomed. They believe that they do not have the right to share details about their children's (or anyone else's children) lives because it would violate the child/rens privacy. But they give some really good hypothetical examples, if you can try looking for solution in a different way.
|I have tried to be patient, I have tried to be tolerant, finally I have tried scrolling on by... but guess what??? I can scroll all the way to the bottom of this forum and it's all TCS!!!!
There are 74 threads listed in this forum for the past 30 days. 20 or so of those specifically deal w/ TCS (which one can easily avoid reading if one finds them offensive, annoying, verbose, etc.) Of those, nearly half were initiated by anti-TCS posters, or TCS antagonists. According to the user conduct rules, we are not to "post messages intended to bait others into entering an unproductive argument; 'flaming' is not acceptable...Do not attack other members individually." Many of these threads are in direct violation of the user conduct rules, and no one is addressing that.
The reason we are seeing mostly TCS posts at the top of the list is because these are the ones to which people are responding. If you would like to see other topics discussed, either start new threads or respond to some of the older ones which have nothing to do w/ TCS.
Larsy stared the thread "Taking Children Seriously" at the request of some people, for reasons I do not know. (Meaning, I don't know if it was people who wanted her to teach them more about it, or people who wanted her to "keep her nose out of their threads...") Since that time, she has not gone into other threads talking lots of TCS. She has addressed people's questions and given advice when people put it out there, but if one looks through all recent posts (which I am in the process of doing, BTW - report to follow ASAP) one will find that the TCS debate is confined to the many threads which clearly state they are TCS. So I really think that people are complaining about something that simply isn't happening any more. Maybe it did in the past, but it looks like it worked itself out, so can we please move on?
