    With all due respect Jennifer,I was in the same room when that member bragged about busting MY dragon up.
    I was in the same room when that member slung lies about my husband/personal life.
    You removed the post but they were seen,copied and spread around what about my reputation here of 12yrs.With all due respect.

    Yes, those posts that I removed absolutely broke the rules and I removed them. I too have screen shots. I am not quite sure what I could have done differently other than time travel back and prevent them from being posted. I cannot control the actions of others, but can indeed remove the comments that clearly were not acceptable. Yours were borderline, so instead of removing them, I shared a general reminder about our forum and how we have always tried to handle this; I try really hard to moderate with a “light touch”. There are some that have complained that I should moderate more heavily, and others that complain when I moderate anything at all. There is not a situation that pleases everyone and it is a tough thing to try to be as unbiased as possible. Normally I would send a private message with this comment, but I want to be transparent right now with everyone about how I moderate. I have been part of this community since we were just an informal Livejournal group in 2006 and I always try my very best to be fair. I appreciate and respect this community and its members very much… it is not hyperbole when I say this is the best long-term collectibles community I’ve been part of.

    These days I do not always check the forum every day or even every week unless someone lets me know that there is a problem, as life has changed for me over the years and I only do this as a volunteer now (I started out as a contracted employee but that hasn’t been the case in many years). I do apologize that I don’t always catch everything. I am not trying to single anyone out at all but remind everyone to please use care when airing grievances. If you have concerns or anything, please feel free to email me. As far as the very specific situation that warranted this bit of moderation, however, concerns should be discussed with John Alberti as I handed it off to him some days ago.

    Again, and this message is to everyone: if you need to discuss this you can send me a message. We now return to our regular “Whine is Served”…

    I would whine about something like all my pain but there really is nothing accomplished doing that. It is what it is. How about everyone else? Anyone got a whine-y but happy story to share?

    I’m no longer quite killing plants? I’ve a black thumb. Good weather means the plants can now go outside on my balcony, where they seem happier if I ignore them until cold weather makes me bring them back in. That’s a happy whine. 😉

    It has been a long cold spring and I am DESPERATE for some sun and heat. On the upside, the carpenter ants are out a whole month later than usual, so yay?

    I'm certainly old enough. When does the knowing better part kick in?

    The one day a week I get to sleep in is Sunday and what should happen 9 out of 10 times? My middle child wakes me up. I just want a good solid night’s rest for once. It doesn’t help that once I wake up I’m usually up for the day too.

    Why is the art field such a pain to get into? My job sucks and I’m desperate to get into a different art job and no one is hiring.

    I’m tripping panic attacks just about twice a week and each time I get more and more exhausted. My depression has been at a really deep low, I’m barely sleeping, body dysphoria is getting pretty bad and just….eugh I’m tired.

    Anxiety and depression suck, man. They suck baaad.
