to the suggestion that I personally was using Nazi comments to justify my own inexecusable behaviour (of inappropriate posting), since I think it is unfair to let that stand. Maybe I am mistaken, but I interpret that as a suggestion that I have posted in the vaccine fora using a sock puppet to mock others. I have not.


In the entire time that I have been a member at Mothering, I have posted in exactly one other thread in any of the vaccination fora, about "Mothers Who Mindfully Vaccinate". I confined my remarks to my own family's experiences with vaccines and vaccine-preventable deaths. That was some time ago. I have never used a sock puppet in the vaccination fora. I have not mocked anyone. For the record, if anyone has done that, then I agree that it is inappropriate. 


Today, when I chanced upon a new thread here about inappropriate posts, I chose to make a broad interpretation that there was going to be a discussion about boundaries for posting since I know that we shouldn't be raising other posts and other threads in new discussions, I occasionally read in this forum but often dislike the tone of the discussions. In fact, that is one of the reasons that I don't read or post here often. It's likely that there are others who feel the same way. I thought I would share my opinion because I figured it might be helpful to hear from someone who hasn't been involved in previous heated debates. That is the only reason I offered a comment about some ongoing offensive stuff (that has been raised by more than one poster, btw). 


Again, I was not trying to justify or excuse anything. I pointed out problematic behaviour that I have witnessed here, in the context of a discussion about appropriate posting. 


I know the mods will have to lock this now and I apologize for making more work here. I could not let that suggestion stand. If I have misinterpreted it and it was not an accusation directed at me, then let's all just ignore this and get back to our regularly scheduled Internet time. 


Thank you.

Hi Ollyoxenfree....


I reread my response in the other thread to see if I inadvertantly accused you personally  of using Nazi comments to justify inexcusable behaviour, and I don't think I did.


That being said, you interpretted it that way, which was not my intentions, so my apologies.


I know full well you do not particpate here; my beef is not with you at all.


Mosaic, I would like it if this thread was locked as well.

There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.
