Or we're adults, so maybe we don't need to be tattling to the teacher? These women are kind enough to devote their free time to keeping this board up, so let's not expect them to play mommy when our feelers get hurt. If you want censorship because someone says something you don't agree with, there's plenty of social media that will police people that might offend your delicate sensibilities. Was that too rude pumpkin?
I appreciate everything the ladies do to keep this site going and you are absolutely correct, people can leave the site and/or stop donating if they don’t like the rules but I also think it’s okay to give feedback before doing that.

I understand not calling every single anon who are asking for advice liars and trolls, giving an unpopular opinion etc. because that is what that feature is for.

But, I agree that people shouldn’t have to go tattle every time someone uses the anon button to be a bitch or insult someone because we aren’t allowed to say anything to them about their behavior.

I’ll always support the admins final decision but if everyone is expected to respect the feature (which is totally understandable), not allowing anons to use the feature to insult people by automatically deleting those comments as well is a fair suggestion.

Also, if someone is insulting someone they shouldn’t be too delicate when it comes to the response, so that goes both ways.
Obviously, we don’t want the anonymous feature to be used primarily as a means to insult other members. We are all adults here. We should be able to scroll past, respond without resorting to name calling, etc. By no means are we saying anonymous posters get a free pass on their word choices over those who aren’t anonymous. By challenging, we are more referring to the continual calling out screen name guesses of anonymous users. We have seen a few posts recently, some brought to our attention, in which several replies were nothing but back and forth over who the anonymous was and arguing over the anonymous guessing game. This is more what we are referring to. I hope that clears things up.
Thank you for clearing that up. ☺️ People shouldn’t throw out random screen names at anons, so that makes sense.

Maybe those people should start getting a ban/warnings. Some people don't use this board because of the people here, they feel like they can't have privacy because of the people with no lives determined to "out" someone.

I've gone through 3 profiles because of this. Left for month in between.
