There was never a doubt that your post and this thread would stay up.
I'm a bit confused by this remark because while we don't have a lot of posts that break out into arguments, and we (the mods)don't take down the ones that do, unless they are caught in a vicious cycle that only cause more harm than good and continue to degenerate.
When something is removed from the board, be it an off color joke or whatever, it's because the mods have recieved complaints, not because we have personally decided we don't like it. In fact we don't always even know it's there, until we are hit up with PMs and emails from people who are up in arms over it. It's a hard line to walk, trying to judge what is acceptable and what is not, when we have such a diverse group of people who often are on either end of the spectrum.
I personally am not easily offended at all, but I can't go by my own standards because there are many folks here who's tolerance isn't as deep. That's fine, it's just hard to strike a balance and you can't make everyone happy. We tend to lean a bit more conservative just because this place is billed as a family site.
I just want to make sure that you know Leslie, that your thoughts, opinion and posts will stay up. They won't be edited or deleted because someone doesn't personally agree with them. That's not how we work. As long as you've been a member here, I can't think of an instance where that hasn't been the case. If I'm wrong, please let me know. You may have heard that we don't allow freedom of speech or conflicting opinions, but have you actually experienced that first hand?
