I don't notice Gwynevere's threads that much but she seems ok really. Though her thread count is rather astounding.
Yes, even seemingly innocuous threads can occasionally get heated for some reason. One of mine just did that on a (nice) non-SA forum.Any thread has the potential for veering into dangerous territory. Some are gong to be more likely to do so just due to the topic. Threads about abortion, or anything that pits men against women are going to go south quickly. It should not come as a surprise that a controversial subject results in getting locked or removed. People will not discuss controversial things calmly and rationally. They are controversial because people are passionate/opinionated about them.
Something else that people fail to realize, is that a thread does not belong to the person who started it. Once the thread is started and replied to, it belongs to the board. If you were to stand up in a crowded room and voice your opinion about a particular group of people, people would respond. You would not be able to take back what you originally said. The discussion will continue with or without you. Here on a forum, you can edit what you originally said but someone will have already read and responded to your original statement.
Yes vlad stop it, you don't want to get banned.I am free to post to any thread I want. It was her decision to expose herself this way. If she doesn't want people to tell their honest opinions(plenty of others, not just me, did the same, cause she asked precisely for that), she should stop making threads. After all, it is hard these days to find many threads that aren't hers. No other member has the right to tell me, or anyone else, in here, what to do, what or how to say, as long as there is no cursing or some other serious issues. If you think that was rude, you don't know what rude is.
Don't reply to me, because I will provide no more explanations. You are free to have your own subjective opinion and like whoever you want. I am perfectly fine with it, but I owe you no explanations.
