As all who have encountered me no doubt know, I am nothing if not opinionated. However, as most of you also know, I don't form my opinions out of thin air. Usually, unless I am in a particularly foul mood, I will happily discuss opinins which oppose mine, and if I did happen to be in a particularly foul mood, I will most often apologize to the people who received the brunt of it, as they did not deserve it.
Okay, now I'm done with this cooking site. My offense was to post in a thread about exercise "Whenever I get the urge to exercise, I lie down until it goes away."
Humor, obviously, right? And yet I got a PM from a "site helper" who told me she had removed it because it was offensive to the other people in that thread. I objected. Here's what she wrote back:
You know what Kelly, you have been an arrogant nasty jerk from the moment you introduced yourself. Either suck it up and join the civilized world or leave the boards. And trust me, another tirade at ANY Admin or Site Helper and we will help you to leave.
I don't really give a rats a$$ what you think of me, I tend to consider the source for that kind of crap and you have done nothing pleasant or noteworthy on the site to date. Consider this your only warning, next bit of nastiness to any member and you will be banned. And, oh dear, if you feel I am abusing my power, perhaps you should go take a look at the Community Policies you agreed to when you signed up on the board. In case you can't figure out what you have violated, that would be the very first statement about being respectful to others on the board. You've had considerably more than three strikes in that area, so consider yourself lucky.
What a rotten @#$^ I am, eh? The community policies are the usual about foul language, politics & religion, pornography, attacking other members, name calling, and the like. I haven't broken one of them, but she has with this last PM.
No point in sticking around and arguing. However, I can't help but complain a bit. Sorry, and thanks for listening.
