A poster over there started a thread about a cat that seems to be able to sense when death is near in patients at a nursing home. Shoreline apparently yanked it because in their words, it had nothing to do with Ludington and contained copyrighted material. A majority of the topics there contain copyrighted material and have little or nothing to do with Ludington. It just seems odd they would single out a thread about a cat instead of some of the more volitale topics.
Your complaint is quite valid Sheila, IMHO. Perhaps the price of being an administrator is a certain loss of objectivity, and a thin skin. Interesting; yet this has been a problem at LT for some time, I'm afraid.
That's not a bad idea, Aq. Heaven knows we have a few who have been banned from Ludington Talks, some repeatedly (those things that look like horns is a halo). Discussing such behavior as SM's latest experiments may best be done in private, to prevent repercussions, establish facts, and calm public discourse. My e-engineers will have to work overtime to construct the clubhouse, but it shall be done.
No, if you have had significant content removed, or a nasty message from SM, you could also be considered. Also, if you have a propensity to show your backside occasionally to SM, figuratively, you can be considered. Aq hasn't been banned, but I know a lot of his posts have been removed, and he has defiantly remained himself in controversial threads.
