Just like to add that I've found the mods helpful or at least responsive. DQ in particular, as we seem to have the same (lack of) regular sleeping schedule. I've gotten into a few tiffs and the mods are fair in what gets removed and keep the peace. Try to remember there are thousands of members here, probably hundreds who are on every day or every other day, all different ages, religions, colors, orientations, all over the world, etc. so balancing that is obviously precarious. I just think that doing the best they can is good enough as there are what, 6 or so of them that are active and...how many of us?
I have been annoyed when my symbol-d curse word in a thread full of adults is removed but others made by children and preteens stay, but in the big picture, it's totally irrelevant. I've made a few good friends that I actually get to meet with from this forum - Tisia took care of my fish and checked on my apartment for me while I was gone over Thanksgiving! There are many forums where it would be foolish to trust ANYONE with ANY personal information about you. I feel safe doing that here, communicating with members, and also feel I can express myself honestly and not worry about petty bannings, etc.
This is a little ramble-y but I hope y'all get the point.
