A Lighter Approach To The Rules

It's obvious that the strict enforcement of the No Preaching Rule with overboard. And I'm not afraid to admit when I make a mistake. So for now on the No Preaching Rule will only be enforced if someone complains to me about someone else's post.

I won't make excuses, I took a much too tough stance on this, no two ways about that. But the pinball forum that I came from was destroyed because the site owner has a No Rules approach, and that sure doesn't work. So those of you who have been the most vocal against me, gloat if you want. The rule still stands, it simply won't be enforced if no one complains.

Compromise is a good thing, right?

I agree whole heartedly...that does NOT work. But I sincerely appreciate you taking a lighter approach to enforcing the rules.

Very wise Elder Pinball Wizard....

It is a hard call because everything each one of us posts is our personal opinions at that moment in time. The big difference is when someone believes that their belief is the ONLY and TOTALLY correct one and insists on force-feeding it to everyone else no matter what! Personally I don't like that approach, it turns me off to most all of what they're saying, which is a shame.

On the other hand I've been at other forums where it was a free-for-all and anything and everything was allowed. It was fun to a point but was also dangerous and very very hurtful to some. Many people would gang up on others that they didn't agree with and it'd turn into a verbal blood bath. What's the point with that sort of negative behavior

Anyway I too think this is a much better way to deal with the occasional poster with boundary issue problems. Thanks oh wise Pinball Wizard for reaching this decision. I was getting ready to post about Jupiter transiting through Sagittaruis for the next year and how this could be a rather common problem because of it.

Admit it, you meant ever NEENER of it, and I probably deserved that and more. I aprereciate everyone's understanding. All it took was someone giving me a good whack up long-side my thick skull. Just proves even us old dogs can learn new tricks, it just takes us a bit longer.

john, not a single one of us can say we haven't ever made a mistake or used poor judgement (or done a really rubbish reading in my case lol) (or annoyed another member again in my case -sorry !)we're all human after all, true strength is being able to admit to it and move on from it having learned from the experience. this is what gives us wisdom. daisy x

very nicely put, daisy! Yes, sometimes we mess up or just take a good thing a too far. BTW.... it's so nice to see you posting! I've missed your presence!
