    First of all I never stated that I like or appreciate over-moderated forums. Scan the thread and check. I am simply pointing out the facts. What don't you get? If you let someone in your house and you don't like what they say you can ask them to leave. That's how things work in forums as well. You have a choice to either continue visiting the forum or not. If the rules are too oppressive you have a choice. There are other forums I don't visit because of things like that.

    I function just fine in society. Believe me...I am not arguing here just stating the facts.
    I hope you're not arguing , don't want to get an "Infraction..."

    I'm not arguing either, but I do think your house and an internet forum is a little different. The library might be a better example.

    Never hurts to say please and thank you or even sorry I tried when you don't have to.
    Whoa... are you calling black people lazy now? Or just big black women lazy?

    The fact is that is what you said, you could have said, "mad person" or "irate customer" Instead, you chose the words "big black women"

    Infraction + 2

    Actually, a house is likely a better analogy than the library. This site is not owned by the public, but rather is owned by the fine folks at Precentral. They owe us nothing, and have the right to expect you to follow their rules in their home.

    It's actually rather simple;

    Follow the Rules:

    Don't use language that the owner of this forum has chosen as inappropriate.
    The mods are doing nothing more than enforcing the owner of this forum's rules.

    Treat others with Respect.

    Post in the Correct Forum.

    Don't Troll - This one may be a little difficult for some to understand.
    We aren't a Pre Fan Club, but we are PreCentral.
    Posting issues and complaints are welcomed when we are here to help each other find solutions. - But this isn't the place for Screaming 'Palm Sucks' as if were going to get Palm's attention. It's not fair to members here that are enjoying their Palm device and want to help others with the use of their device.

    No, the Library isn't a good comparison. A free country isn't a good comparison.
    Freedom of Speech doesn't apply when one visits another's home. This site is Privately Owned.

    With all that said,
    It is actually rather easy to stay within the Forum Guidelines. They aren't difficult in the slightest. If one has difficulty, then they have bigger social issues that may need to be addressed.

    We do want to thank all the long time loyal members, who've been here long enough to know that T|C and now Pre|C has never silenced the complaints. Sheesh... I've made my share of complaints about the 650 in years gone by.
    But we also want to welcome the newer members to continue to enjoy our forums.

    Thanks again,
    -Berd
    Just call me Berd.
