Who is getting tired of all the moderating, censoring and even our pm's are being effected now, what's next?
This is my take -
When a comment or blog of mine goes into moderation (for some reason it is rare for me - I know for others it is not so rare), if it is feasible to do so, I delete it and try again. Normally it will go thru the second time - if I make a minor change to it. I realize it is not always possible to do this with a lengthy blog or comment. Perhaps you can copy it before you delete it and try it that way so not to lose your content.
If I use a word that gets ******ed, people can use their imagination and fill in the blank - lol. I do have an extensive vocabulary when it comes to dirty words - but I have tried to work on cutting down on using them the last year or so. That is not really a big deal to me.
As far as private messages go - I treat the PM system here the same as my work e-mail. I do not put anything out there that I would have a problem with admin or my boss reading. I do not think that admin or my boss reads all of my messages or emails but the possibility and technology is there. They can if they want to.
MOO - the more time that we spend on these issues, the less time that we have to spend on the real reason that we are here - to help people quit smoking and remain quit.
MOO is EXACTLY the same as @Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14
Agreed..but aren't we all adults here. Quitting is difficult...and we can't be grammiicly expressing how we feel during our quit process.
I know I'm personally not offended when I read how some describes their quit in their day!!
Well Jennifer_Quit_05-01-14 ,I'm really hoping that Administration will work with us and our grievances so we can get back to helping people quit smoking and Remain quit, I sure don't like being frustrated when all I'm trying to is be helpful.
But I'm in agreement with Jennifer. I think it's time to move on. indingrl.01.06.2011 Diane Joy's blog (which I just came upon from two days ago) reminded me of that. Am I being helpful, or causing strife? I have caused some strife, I'm sure, by expressing my opinion (which I felt needed to be heard) because I care deeply about this community and am concerned for it's health. But now I think our time is better spent in attending to the needs of those who are here to learn how to save their lives.
Yup I know that you are right so I will get over my hissy fit now since you and everyone else are done and have said what you wanted then I'll follow in line like a good little girl and do as I am told......
I am just too tired to fight about it...I will absolutely NOT rewrite or copy and paste my comments that go into moderation. That's a bit much.
I agree sweet friend, sleep my dear Ellen I'm tired myself and frustrated but I think I might just be exhausted enough to sleep, gentle hug from me to you elvan
I have to work tomorrow morning...they had someone call in and it is delivery day, not to mention they have just rearranged the entire cafe so it will be good for me to learn where things are. Sleep well, sure hope I do as well.
I would just leave for a day or two if my blog got messed up or maybe more time I am just sick of this stuff.
I can walk and chew gum at the same time so things like this in no way hamper my ability to help people quit smoking and it shouldn't affect anyone else unless you can't walk and chew gum.
jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007 I have been accused of having issues walking and chewing gum at the same time...but not by very nice people.
Kudos to you jonescarp.aka.dale.Jan_2007!!
I missed all of this censorship business but I say RESIST! Fight the man!
jbliesmer I first noticed it July 12th.
When did Jive go into Auto Censuring Mode? For the Best of the Community
When I decided to join Ex, it was because I was shopping for an online quit smoking support site (2.8 years in). However, first I signed up on a site that I liked. Soon, I was having trouble logging in, commenting, doing much of anything. As I browsed the older comments, I noticed the problem had been going on for a long time.
I thought about how I was working hard just to log in, doing crazy somersaults--so I wondered, is this worth it? No. So rather than join no site, I went back to looking elsewhere. Enter Ex (last august). When I joined, and as time went on, I realized in order to make it work, I'd have to dial back a lot of my personal feelings: folks would go back to smoking, folks would get smoking hot angry, folks would simply disappear fate unknown, site malfunctions would happen, and the site would be revamped. Not just with Ex (in a back door sort of way Ex has helped me in a way I didn't expect to be helped) but I've also had to keep framing my days as, "what is my priority?" Avoiding exasperation is top o my list! Not allowing a wound to grow top o my list too.
Ex helps me in so many ways, and I hope to help others. I love that so many pitch in day in and day out.
Good thing you are on holiday taking in rest. Drinking from the well? And not reading this message til rested?
We appreciate the feedback. I've written a blog post Prohibited Word Filter to provide more information on recent changes.
