Really? of course it's real. And it's an example, whether made in an email or even out in the open of how things should be done.
Real offensive-the mod deletes the offending post-notifies the poster.
Not that damn difficult.
Follows the rules and ideals. It's there site-they have a right. That you contribute gives you something-that is, you aren't nothing.
I know first hand, personally etc the trials and tribulations of running, monitoring, being responsible for an albeit small public forum........so I'm not speaking in tongues on this. It's not easy by any means, you don't want to offend the public and you sure don't want to offend the patron. There's got to be at least in the beginning a middle road.
Still and all, remember-this from a getting smarter but still, dumb carpenter.............
with some underground newspaper experience.
