Do you also have a ruling on CosmicMessenger's graphic to Brother Clyde:

They say a picture is worth a thousand words ... and i saw where some folk walked away with words and sentiments that i didn't automatically get from viewing that picture ... but are no doubt in the "thousand word" realm of possibilities.

I can't control how someone perceives this image in their own mind.

I suppose it could be considered in violation of something ... one's sensibilities, etc., ... but i just don't see it rising to the level of a violation of our rules ... not the image, all by itself ... no.

I think what's happening is folk are piling stuff on top of stuff, and well ... any little thing will appear heavy.

I think if you all put each other on ignore ... you, Clyde, Cosmic ... everyone who doesn't like another or what they are saying ... and the problem will be solved.

Let's see how it goes from this point forward ... now that i'm watching.

Love You!

Hello Family,

The 9 words listed above are the original ones added to the list, but since that time, the list has grown. It will continue to grow as we see words added to the community that are considered inappropriate by the Moderating Team. You'll know these words, because when you type them, they will be astericked out, ******.

Please try to refrain from going around this feature by spelling the word in a different way. It makes us think you have no respect for how we'd like things to be done here.

Thanks.

:heart:

I reported it because I took it as a disrespectful post and a type of "skirting" of your "Banned Words" rule. Instead of "alternate spellings," it was a picture to convey the same message. Even if the recipient's sensibilities were not offended, that image could have offended others seeing it.....as it did mine.

However, I am glad that you'll be watching now. So, any future "INTELLIGENT" insults or other questionable content will be noted.

Thank you.

Okay Sister cherryblossom and Family ... thanks for helping me see more clearly.

It does appear that Brother CosmicMessenger has earned the ire of a few around here ... :look:

So i will be watching more closely Brother, so please refrain from personalizing the discussions.

It is best to report those doing this to you, rather than joining in with them, violating your own self.

Sister Cherry ... that's the problem you face right now ... you did to him the very behavior you're reporting.

So i'm going to let one cancel out the other ... instead of fussing at you both, warning, suspending, etc.

Given the numerous potential violations against CosmicMessenger, i take it that you have him on ignore now?

I ask because at this point, with so much evidence that you all can't get along, it will be held against you if you continue engaging him knowing the volatility that exists.

Family ... to you all that have a problem with this Member ... give him 50 feet ... leave him alone ... or else you'll go down with him, should such be necessary.

I will be watching more closely, and if you see something that needs reporting please do so ... but remember ... you can't report stuff to me (receiving the response you hope for), and your hands are dirty ... you dun already did the very thing you're complaining about another doing.

Is this good now? We good? Let me know.

Love Yall and Thanks!

:heart:

Thanks Destee, for your understanding.

To be honest, I didn't remember "cherryblossom" and wasn't aware that she was angry about the TRUTHS I posted.

I post my philosophy to EVERYONE...not just her.

She apparently took my postings PERSONAL and had it in for me, even though i'd forgotten all about her.

I know who she is NOW, however, and might never post to her again.

Brother ... put the folk who rub you wrong, on ignore ... you're required to do that here, rather than break our peace.

If you continue engaging with them in this disruptive manner, and they you ... yall will all be held responsible for the disruption it causes.

If you have any questions let me know.

Much Love and Peace.

:heart:

My earlier post to cherryblossom wasn't accurate. I had to leave and didn't have time to finish it.

This is what I intended to state:

Yes, this was exchange was from MORE of his "INTELLIGENCE" insults.http://destee.com/index.php?threads/war-the-world-is-a-ghetto.77909/page-2

Actually, he DELETED his post to me to make appear to Destee that I had provoked HIM. Then, he cropped my post to him and put it here for Destee to see.

But, I had already QUOTED him in the thread. So, HERE is his DELETED post to me and my FULL response:
Still wallowing in your mire of HATRED for me because of the TRUTHS that I posted???

Your incessant fighting diminishes you as a woman.

It's unladylike...let it go.

I got your message, sister.

It takes INTELLIGENCE to understand the communication between a black woman and a black man.
I posted that to Clyde Coger, thinking that he was INSTIGATING as usual, and MISTAKING your EVIL INTENTIONS, I thought we were on the same page.

That's why I called you "sister" instead of something DEROGATORY.

I thought you and I UNDERSTOOD each other and were engaging in some "black man/black woman communication".

I guess like the Greek proverb states, "Trust no woman even when she is dead." :rolleyes:
-------------------------------------------------------------------

At this point, I am done with this discussion.

I hope this explains my misunderstanding of "cherryblossom's" intentions more accurately.

I think everyone should put everyone on ignore, then everyone who posts will only be arguin' with themselves and that will be that. That handles everything, no need for the Justice League, no need for moderators, Destee you can finally kick your feet up and not go KRAYZEE over people gettin' at each other.

Wipes my hands, state "All in a day's work.", walk off into the sunset. lol
