I have been here a very short time. I've heard confusing things. I've seen confusing things. Am I allowed to ask a question that I would really like an answer to? Or is it best to just keep it to myself and just read over and over and over what a few members have to say. I feel I should ask in public because I have been getting private messages from both camps as to who to trust and who not to. As a result of the in fighting, it's hard to trust anyone, including moderators.

Explained by Bingo449...

I can't believe some of the things I've seen so far.

If it's a question about specific users, you probably shouldn't ask it publicly, as those questions tend to be removed. Other than that, I don't see why you shouldn't ask any question you want to.

Some of the people complaining about having questions removed were probably asking questions about other users. Just because you don't name them, doesn't mean it's not obvious whom you're attacking in your question. So if it's really not that type of question, I think you should ask it. The worst thing that could happen is that the question would be pulled, but I don't think you would be suspended for it.

You joined 4 days ago. Even less time than me. What makes you such an authority? (hmm)

Point is, if the post is "obvious" and true, and everyone, including the mods know that the so called target does all the things that are complained about, then why is the target still active? If the allegations aren't proven, then it's also not proven that the specific someone is being targeted.
I know why....

Seems like a lot of those complaints come from people who are blocked by or block those users in question, so why should they even care what that user does? If you block them, you shouldn't see what they post anymore, right? So why do they seem to know everything about what those users do?

I don't know why the mods don't ban users who repeatedly violate the rules. I reported two questions the other day from two different users because it was obvious they were targeting other users. Both questions were removed, but those users are still here, and they still seem to regularly break the rules.

Maybe because if everyone who posted a question that was a not-subtle attack on another user was banned, there'd be no users left.

That's not what I said. I said that if a person , or their friends feel targeted , then it must be true. They know who they are. It's their consciences telling them they are being targeted.

Trust me. Completely innocuous questions which do not violate the site rules can still get you thrown off the site. Even if it's basically a rebuttal question. It all depends whose Cheerios, you inadvertently, piss in.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand such an event happening on this lovely site. What do you mean with "kicked off"? Were they told to ** off or did they do it without any outside influence? There are no wrong questions, there are no wrong upvotes. Whatever happened with your questions, I have no idea about that. Believe me, all this site needs is right there. New people. Welcome to have a ** blast. (I hope you have the language filter off, otherwise that would be just l-l-lll---llllllll-lame.

EDIT: When you said "dozen", you meant 12 people, right? Left? In between?

There are the cars and the loans for apartment,
a dog and kids,
furniture from IKEA,
and wife has buttocks trained at the gym.

We're gathering bonuses (a Finnish trade scam, pretty much),
and it does pay off,
Saturday night, we go to the area,
forbidden from the children.
**
Don't swear anything.
We're going east from Hell.

Don't swear anything.
It's a long journey, anything could happen.

Right here, I don't know anyone or myself,
what could happen is that I might get lost, living.
Or I might...
Just stay here.

etc.

I DID listen to Mike Pompeo's speech the other day at Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library. He offered unnerving descriptions of what life is like in Iran these days. The punishment for free speaking is pretty severe.
That's where the Iran reference came from.

What potus has called news outlets that dont agree with him, the enemy of the people?

I'm kinda late to the post, but I'll tell you what I do, if that helps.
- I try to follow the rules, but if anything of mine gets deleted or muted, I ask the moderators in the messages if I broke any rules, and which one I broke, so I know not to do it again. Until now, they have been straightforward with me.

- If someone tells me not to trust this person and that person, I'll thank them for the warning, and I'll decide for myself if I should trust them or not. There's history between members, some of it pretty ugly. I have people blocked who you might find nice people to get along. There's people who will say I'm not a nice person at all, and others who will say I'm quite nice. You don't have to pick a side, and if someone thinks you do, that's their problem, not yours. But I do think that you should never take the word of someone about others, because one guarantee I can give you: some people will lie about what happened and what they said or did - so you should see for yourself who is what around here.
