    Relate any way you like.

    I think for myself, nobody represents me except me.  If you happen to agree with me fine, but I refuse to think for you.

    It's really just like The Nation's advertising policy.  By excuding certain opinions as unacceptable, you accept responsibility for those you do publish.

    •  I honestly have no clue (0+ / 0-)

      what you're saying here.  I've read it three times and there's some disconnect there.

      •  Ok. (3+ / 0-)

        "... what I really disagree with is that it suggests that you get to define what are acceptable ways to relate to the site." was what I was mostly reacting to.

        Harsh?  I've been here 2 years and it's the same complaints and mostly (not skymutt) the same complainers.

        I think you guys do a great job with diaries that should disappear and I think that if TUs were given that ability the site would run wild in flame wars that would make us justifiably wish for the good old days.

        Moreover I think 98% of the motivation for this kind of complaining is vanity.  Why didn't my diary make the rec list.

        Boo hoo.

        Write better and build your audience, or are we living in Harrison Bergeron land?

          I can understand why people would think this about me in particular, since I've written more than once about the rec list or rec list diaries. It's probably a fair point to raise. But I assure you that I am thrilled with the amount of attention I have gotten on this site and have pretty much no complaints in that regard.

      •  If you disapprove of some, and don't include them (0+ / 0-)

        Then you must approve of everything that is included.  

        It's sort of a liability issue.  Action to prevent harm makes the person liable.  That was the reason this school I worked at didn't use any software to filter their internet.
