    Actually, I apologize. I can see how my request for support could have been seen as asking for the links. My error.

    Remember, we found in referendum campaigns that the majority of the people who say they don’t know in response to polls ended up being gay marriage opponents afraid to admit their views.
    Unfortunately, I would say until a few months ago I was one of these people.

    I can see both sides here honestly and since I have good relations with both people, I do want to try to give the benefit of the doubt to both.

    I can see how Darris sees his position as giving support, and indeed it does. I can also see how it can seem the moderation at times can be subjective, and indeed it has to be. We're not perfect and we have to make judgment calls. We could say something ranging from a beauty pageant to a show like Chopped also is subjective, even if there is some objective criteria. It doesn't mean the people in charge don't have reasons for their viewpoint which may or may not be valid.

    On the other hand, all of this is stated in campus decorum that is agreed to and I understand what CP is saying. We can't just have people posting web links constantly. Certain people might get more leeway in my section or in JPH's section. In the rest of the forum, not really. One needs at least a little bit of something to go with a link or else we're just blasting links at each other all day.

    But I do uphold the moderation team (And I say this as one who sees the inside) is incredibly fair and lenient around here. The forum is indeed lightly moderated and has become a fun place for people of all persuasions to unite.

    Seriously, I know what I had in mind when I asked for support, but I also know the way most people could interpret that was "show me the link". So, yeah, my fault.

    Tis the nature of the beast, but you are wrong on one point CP.

    It is not your fault.

    It is Jaltus's fault.
