Open forum for Objective Observation of topics/issues. Yes or No?

In other words you're looking for a general discussion forum to talk about anything and everything?

I'm a moderator at one right now with 5,000 registered members and 1.25million posts. It's a BIG headache... but at the same time this wouldn't be as large and people would be more respectful. So sure if that's what you were actually asking.

Well, yes and no. I think the respect has to stay. What I was trying to get at (but you're only allowed 30 characters on an entry post) is that I was under the impression that this forum is supposed to be that way. It appears to be a place to exchange ideas, ask questions and voice concerns regarding SJA and things that affect us. Unfortunately it appears that some people don't view it that way. It was recently inferred to me that since I don't always agree in my posts with the "party line" or popular opinion I might be in the wrong organization! I looked back at my posts and couldn't see anything that should have warranted that type of comment. I think it's valid to try and be objective with this type of thing and bring another opinion forth, whether it's your opinion or one you've heard or just a possibility. Not everything works for everyone all the time and by pointing this out and looking at the other side of the coin, sometimes subtle changes can be made that make the situation better for a few more people than before. Hope that makes sense. I was just really annoyed that someone would take this type of discussion and look at it out of context and make a decision instead of looking at the big picture. Hopefully that person was the minority.

Ok, I know the affairs of other places do not concern us but I'm going to use where I mod as an example.

I was named mod about a week ago. Within two days I had already warned a bunch of people to stop what they were saying (racist) and banned another for not listening to said warnings. A lot of the more prominent members were in an uproar because I was very different from the other mods, I am very visible and not afraid to warn someone or give them temp bans if they don't ignore my one and only warning. This was not the routine there but it was how I thought things should be. Now the Admin fully supports my style and thinks it's a good change. So the question is, was I wrong for being different? Not really.

The point here is just because you don't do things the way everyone else does doesn't mean you're wrong. This IS supposed to be a place for open discussion.

I should be able to suggest that we should lick all gauze pads before applying them to a gaping wound if I think it should be how things should be done.

NOTE: I don't actually do this ;)

But, I should be able to suggest it and would expect that I would receive polite but firm direction that maybe this isn't the best way. But I don't think I should be asked not to say such things.

Looks like this problem applies internally as well..have you recently been somewhere that no longer exists? Why is that I wonder? Maybe a little too close to the truth for comfort. Could it be the nasty little secret plan was starting to fall apart cuz some folks is smarter than others thought? Stay tuned for the continuing saga...

Sometimes when things are flushed down, it is hard to retrieve especially when the lost item doesn't make enough of a sound to warn that things we treasure are gone.....

Eerie how somethings just suddenly disappear....
X-Files anyone?

I hope the sequel is better than the introduction to the saga.
Ironically, objectivity can be very subjective...
