I have seen a variety of subjects in letters to the Editor.
Many times there are issues that are related to our schools brought to light there.
Good to know.
Honestly, there is no place for it on this forum.
Nothing would be discussed, It would just turn into a sex thread.
Then I guess something would be discussed, just not the topic it started out as.
I know you folks can't begin to understand it, but not everyone in this county wants/needs to know what you pleasure.
While I look back at what was said, and look at it from the perspective of someone either new to the forum, or not a regular poster, I can see how this thread may come off as in poor taste
While I understand your statement, this forum has been like this ever since I first logged in here, and is one of the reasons why I have stuck around, as is the case for quite a few others I'm sure. And quite possibly the reason why so many others have not as well I guess.
This forum has become an extension of our daily communication with others. People we have learned to love (and in some cases hate), but have learned that we all need to try and get along as best as possible.
People will continue to be who they are, if you don't like that, then that is what the ignore feature is for. Yes, occasionally they will go too far, and then you may report it to the admins, who may or may not do something about it, depending on many factors.
I won't even attempt to fathom what those factors may be, but they exist I'm sure.
Also, if you do report something, it may not be answered right away, so you don't know if they are going to do anything about it or not. And, if they do decide to do something, you usually won't be notified, and by usually I mean almost always.
Now, the reason for this, is because this site is not a money maker for them. I like to think of it as a science experiment that went horribly wrong, and now has a life of it's own.
And what gives it life, is the complex myriad of people, co mingling together on an internet forum. Sharing stories, life experiences, and, for the most part, having fun.
Hopefully there is some wisdom there that I was able to confer to others.
Okay, now I'm drained, I've used up the remainder of my intellectual power of remaining cool and trying to explain that in a manner that would convey my meaning without upsetting too many.
