I just dont get it, why was Wet & Wild canned, but not the goat thread!!! IMHO neither would offend anyone, but then again I'm not a Moderator and do not have that God like power. The dog picture was pretty mild, Hell that damn goat is showing PINK!

Again, it's not that you have to "protect" all sorts of groups. Just that one group shouldn't be "super protected". It's not a call for more moderation, really it's a call for less, but more fair moderation. If the mods choose to make it some crusade and moderate mob-handed, well that's only something they can work out. If they choose to moderate fairly, and simply apply the same standard to one group as another, we may actually wind up with less moderation. There will no doubt be some adjustment of fire before it's on target. Ross

Apparently when a board is filled with low intellect people it starts to reflect and respond to their needs.

The Beer Slayer- Agreed. Zero tolerence doesn't work for anything. The point is that maybe moderation should be throttled back on some areas, rather than increased in others. Ross

I am a white man of German descent, so, it's open season. Please help out if I have missed anyone else who is in a "protected class." Wouldn't want to offend anyone by not including them in the list of who not to offend. [BD]

well said beekeeper, if we are to start a list, its gonna be pretty looooong, I bet we could put everyone on the list EXCEPT white males, who as he all know are the root of all evil, and therefore its open season on them. I'm with beerslayer on this too [%(]

I'm probably not making myself very clear. I have to shift to nights this week and I'm staying up late to change my schedule[;)] I'm making the same point Miss Magnum was making. That possibly we have gone to "overmoderation" because it's more PC and that maybe we should have a little less. If you reread her responses to the "Locked three threads" thread (that's a handfull of keys) with that in mind you'll notice she's not calling for more moderation of anti-woman posts, but really less moderation, more common sense, and a fair aplication of the rules so that people aren't sitting there wondering "is this going to be PC?" Ross edited for spelling only[:o]

I see what you mean:
