Last night when people were talking about bull penises mine was the only one edited while the word penis still was on that post like 5 times. Edited to add: See what I mean. Why is it edited that once but in the first sentence it is still there?
That is odd paigebeverly... I know we post off topic things here...but it doesn't seem like there have ever really been problems before...Hell, look at that one post that ended up being like 7 pages long. Perhaps it was "lost" or something..but I am pretty sure she deleted it..she was on for about 20 minutes or so and then she logged off after I had asked my question.. **Sigh** What I had posted about was that... My daughter made B honor roll..it was a much longer post than that..but I'm sure this will eventually get deleted too. I was so happy about it..especially after we were talking about ADHD, she always got D's in reading and C's in writing and came out with a B in reading and an A in writing..I am one proud Mom! And I was asking for ideas about how I can reward her..since she is still grounded from hiding that food under the chair. Delete away Minniyar!
well DoGoneIT, congrats to your daughter for doing well! i'm glad to hear that she's doing so much better. and being as i'm not a parent i wouldn't know how you should go abouts awarding her if she's grounded, but i'm sure you must be pretty darn proud of her!
Well Min's judgement has always been suspect in my opinion. I have said repeatedly Min is biased and cowtows to friends and individual posts it likes. Further the tone of Min's posts are often downright arrogant. With that said, this is why I do not like censorship in any form. One person always becomes a control freak and censors at their whim.
MLS, not to be rude,but how can you tell the intent of ones post as being arrogant? There's no feeling on a computer screen and posts can be interpeted in different ways from one person to another. This is the problem with forums.
Wow, I bet you are happy about the grades. Reward while grounded. Now that is a tough one. What is her restriction exactly? Is it grounded to the house, or no tv, or what? Then maybe I can come up with something that won't interfere with her grounding, because you don't want to do that one. Congratulations.
TJ thank you for your kind words and thoughtfulness to reply to my daughter's achievements. I am SO very proud of her! mls..If my post was deleted because it was off topic..I obviously would not agree with that. I would think it was unfair..for whatever reason, if she indeed decided to remove it. I also think that she could have given me the common courtesy to explain to me why it was done, as it is apparent that it was not a "lost" post. I am not one to argue..I would just like her to make her point and then move on. I thought it was a bit rude for her to sign off, come back on and then sign back off with out stating a reason, because she obviously reads through posts and would have been more likely to read through a post that was headed "Minniyar". I guess she has the power to do that and doesn't have to explain anything to anyone...that is why Admin chose her I suppose :o/ rednosered..I think you are right, it is very hard to understand what someone is thinking when you don't hear any emotion, inflection or tone in someone's posts...but I think that someone can say something and not intend to mean it a certain way, but it come off as rude or arrogant...it is all in the wording..no one has to type a certain way to try to protect other's but I think the nice thing would be to try not to hurt anyone's feelings or seem "bossy"...as my Mom always taught me...it's not what you say, but how you say it.
Thank you very much Gina :o) Well, she is grounded from the phone, friends, TV, outside, no jewelery (it may sound weird..but she LOVES her jewelry) and has a few extra chores around the house (like sweeping the bathroom and the foyer, and vacuuming the living room) but all of that is only when she is grounded..I agree, it's a tough one..lol but I do want her to know that although I am soooooo very proud of her for her grades...she still needs to be punished for what she did earlier. Thanks for any suggestions! **Edit..just read your other post Yes, I did..earlier today at around 4pm or so, I made a post that read **OFF TOPIC** Just had to share! and in the post I went on about my daughters grades and how well she did and then asked about the suggestions for her reward while being grounded. I ran to the door real quick to tell someone I didn't want any magazines and then came back..refreshed my page and it was gone :o(
Is she grounded from going out with you? Maybe you could take her for an ice cream or something different. Then it would be with you and she would still be grounded when you got home. I think you said before that y'all go out to dinner, so I would try to make it something different than normal and let her know how proud you are of her. You might even mention that if she wasn't grounded she would be able to do more. That might get her to thinking.
You're right Gina! lol why didn't I think of that? She is not grounded from me!!! So yes, I can do something with her..great idea! With that said..there is this place called cinema cafe..you watch a movie (it's set up like a restaurant with tables and chairs) and you eat dinner...hmm..perhaps I will ponder over it for a few days and do that this weekend with her. Thanks!
