    Should members of AKAqa, (even long time members) be suspended or removed from the forum it their sole reason for participating is to be augmentative?

    I try to give sound advice and helpful answers... Those questions and answers are buried by non-sense.  Question that are posed only to insight arguments. I for one am aggravated that this has been allowed to continue.... IF a member, any member is not here to add to the site, they should not be permitted to antagonize the other members. (no matter how long they have been here or the amount of karma they have).

    Jenn. i do agree with you regarding abusive members, but argumentative, that's a hard one it's a little difficult sometimes to differentiate being augmentive and debating, remember the old adage - Sticks and stones ---------.

    Sometimes its best to ignore some questions or answers.that are upsetting. I still beieve in everyones right to theire own opinion though.

    Have you ever asked cleverbot a question Ann?
    Give him a try, it,s fun.
    Ann

    Romos, what does that mean?
    Ann

    Thanks, I ve tried it and is too funny.

    That would amount to censorship of opinions that differ from what one person or group thinks is correct, or wants. Sometimes I don't agree with what I read, but I still like to see other perspectives, and to try understand why they say what they say. And yes, some people are going to be passionate about different subjects, seeing things and interpreting them based upon different life experiences. If we were all to agree to the same thing, saying all the same thing all the time...we would be little different than sheep following one another, and not even knowing why.

    Great answer. Thank you

    I just ignore the folks who want to spout off. Some people really like to  PO others! Some folks actually believe they are always correct!

    Sorry sweetie, you are not the only one! Ahem didn't you just complain of only one phrase a bit ago? This is for Umbriel

    No, it's best they be ignored...........

    Well think about it were not robots with no feelings or emotions nor opinions as long as their a question asked you'll never get any kind of  harmonies answers.what we all need to do learn is to agree to disagree..

    No I don't think they should be removed, as long as they are not being rude or offensive to anyone, it's just freedom to speak really, isn't it.

    Hmmm.  I treat this site like I treat life.  There are a few 'debaters" here who I, in general, take with a large grain of salt, laugh at, or ignore.  (There is No escape!!).  I have seen questions 404d and words taken out of Q's and A's...but, frankly, I agreed with the moderator's decision- Do you Know that Collen is not our only Mod???  She works very hard and many hours to Answr questions and 'monitor Q and As!  Colleen and the other Mods need to follow the dictates of admin.  There are few dictates/ rules on this site.  That is what makes it fun.

    Thank you for pointing out that I am not the only mod here. There two others along with the admin. Sometimes those 404's and missing words are not me people!

    Some questions tie my stomach in knots. I like to keep the peace. This isn't exactly an answer. I an still learning and haven't been a member long enough to make this call.

    Jenn

    I hope this one did not upset you... I am not trying to be obnoxiousness. I am truly interesting in hearing from the forum about how they would like the amin. to address these situations.
    Daisy!

    oh no it did, there are some questions out there, that cause problems. I agree. I think you are handling it beautifully. This question should be asked.

    No . We are in charge of nothing ,control of nothing ,except how we choose to respond to any given thing . In that respect we control only ourselves and we all all know how that works out LOL !!! Taking or making some ones work worthless is not something I would condone or participate  in . I find the sometimes stupid as a cry for help .Look deeper it never hurts to learn how to read people . I truly enjoyed that TV show "Lie To Me "  This at ask a question is just another version of that ,entertaining and aggravating as well. We can fix fat ,ugly ,and many other things but stupid is harder and takes a concentrated effort. People post outrageous things for the response it wont work for them there is little or no response . No pay off makes antagonising difficult . Fact : What ever is posted here is seen by all so the evidence of  rudeness and moronic thinking is exposed no one stands for that so I would let nature take its course Thats my answer ,you arent alone their is no special treatment  for any one . Global free for all .

    Argumentative with who? About what? Having a difference of opinion and "not backing down" could be construed as argumentative.  
    Censorship should be limited as much as possible.
    The people who needle and try to pursue an agenda have 3 moderators to bamboozle.  Our moderators aren't ones to be bamboozled.   
    For the most part, I am fine with akaQA.

    HOW IS THE BULLDOG ,BOB,?
    Dollybird

    Very good answer.
    Bob/PKB

    Bulldog needs a bath and a good long run. Climbed into my lap last night, too. He hasn't seen his boy in almost a year. :(

    If you want an argument try one with this guy.

    I am not trying to argue.
    ROMOS

    Never said YOU were,just a general thing.
    Try it out.

    Jenn, this is a question for the administrators. They make the decision as to what is allowed and what is not. If you feel any member is out of line you can message the admin about them.

    Jenn

    I realize this is a decision for the admin... But I would like to know what the members believe is appropriate.

    I have tried to e-mail you hector but your posted e-mail is not good. I can not answer you outside of the forum and the forum is not the place for your answer. I've posted this to you before but apparently you have not seen it. Now I wonder if you will see this.

    I SEE IT COLLEEN,THANKS,BUT MY EMAIL ADDRESS IS THE ONLY ONE I HAVE.

    Then your settings need to be adjusted as the e-mails I send come back as undeliverable. Even Pythonlover tried and she got the same.

    Colleen, do you get to read the questions, comments, and complaints that are sent to the adminis ?

    No mycatsmom. Only the admin see those. If you need to reach me directly, you need to use the e-mail address found on my profile paged.

    William, keep trying, that's all I can say.

    @Hector,got a question for you old mate,,4 years ago your email did not work,and here we are 4 years later it still does not work..????????>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<..

    I only hope this was not directed to me, i like a good debate, even thou it got well and truely out of hand the other day/night, i don't think i'm abusive, i'm sure some one would tell me if i was, and [please remind me not to answer questions about 'happy people'. i don't agree with lewd questions being posted, i know we have free speech but some questions should be censored, they are only posted i feel for sensationism by perverted morons, so there., have a 'happy' day./ night.

    Colleen

    I don't think it got out of hand at all. You guys just don't like reading. It got long but everything that was said, needed to be said. It takes a lot of words to get through to old prejudices. Of course I know you disagree with my side of that discussion but well I can only help one person at a time. I still have the forum to look after : )
    Jenn

    No it is not directed at you at all. I really is not directed at anyone. It was most definitely prompted by what I saw as antagonizing. But that are many instances of what I feel is inappropriate. I dont have a problem with the sharing of knowledge and differing opinions... I take issue with posting a question that sole purpose it to create tension, and incite arguments... (not decision)

    Why are we here? To answer questions. It seems that there is more dialog between us than answers. We discuss contravercial issues where some members are simply not willing to accept that others do not share their views. As long as we respect one anothers opinion without shoving our dogma down others throats, is a good thing. Is it any wonder that different cultures can't get along, when a handfull of people on this site forget who they are. Supposedly intelligent mature adults. Bad language should be addressed, by way of a warning with consequences. The kiddies who show up here eventually leave once they realize that the format presented here is over their head.

    I agree with admin., if there are vulgar questions or people use profanity then off goes the question. But part of the fun here is seeing opposing viewpoints, why ban freedom of speech? I understand that sometimes people get offended, but the key here or anywhere is to,"NOT GET OFFENDED."


    If someone is argumentative then that's their priority and people will see them for what they are. If I don't want to participate in a question than I don't have to. If someone offends me I can just turn the other cheek, so to speak. I think the best thing to do is not take things to personally and to enjoy the discussion or exclude yourself from it if it's something that upsets you. Hope this helps...

    I do take some things personally,though; it is my nature. Although my skin has thickened, when someone lashes out at me, pokes fun at me for no good reason, I steer clear of that person. Here, as in daily life, there are certain people I avoid. Some of them do likewise. It works.
    leeroy

    Thank you pythonlover, I understand where you are coming form Bob/P, when I first came here I did take some things personally. Then with time I suppose I got used to the blogging thing, I had never done it before this site. I suppose it depends on your sensitivity?

    What about cursing , using the f word. calling people inappropriate names. Then those admins should be immediately removed . Who monitors the admins.     DALLAS   Its good to disagree, Atleast we can.

    The admin monitor the moderators. The "report abuse" monitors the moderators. I have answered this before. If I see it again, it will be removed. Take it to the administrators. You are again taking one time (when I was quitting the forum ages ago) and trying to make it into a constant. Do not over speak for the dramatic affect.

    Be careful you might get 404ed...........lol

    That's right Randy. Anyone who is out of line with continued comments of an age old issue after they've been told to take it to the admin and not the members can get 404'd as I told him. Further comments about this, will be removed.

    NO

    No comment..........lol

    bluesman1951

    I know a conversation would be interesting with you . Dont know if I would agree or not. I wish you good fortune and good luck on your journey to God .Have you read "OG Mandinos " "Worlds Greatest Salesman " You may find that of value . Hopefully Ill be seeing you at the gate .
    Headless Man

    Thanks, bluesman1951-
    If it its not online I have problem reading (eye problems) I will look and see if the liberty has it in large print.

    I don't see what's wrong with arguing. I do see a problem with name calling and insults.

    Headless Man

    Thats how I feel........

    WELL THIS IS JUST CARZY and I don’t why anyone would post such a question like this one. (Kidding, just having some fun)

    i love it.  debating different ideas is great. questions i don't like, i don't answer.  things i'm passionate about i love to answer.  some things if i don't want to debate about i will not answer.  fun pop questions and polls i love to answer.  as m.c. hammer said and the name of one of his songs, 'it's all good."

    Jenn, I  read your comment in the question section of Randy's question about asking atheist questions and what you wrote is absolutely right on the money.  I share your feelings 100%. Thank you for putting your thoughts so eloquently.  Sincerely, Bob/PKB

    Jenn

    Thank you Bob. I took several days to myself, away from the internet. I think it best if I not engage Randy. We have a drastically different views on what is supposedly the same religion. I find peace in my faith, and would like to hold onto it.

    Jenn, I strive to remind myself to be as kind as possible to the members here.  I am sure that occasionally I get under some people's skin.  If I upset you in any way, please let me know.  You're one of the most gentle members here.  Below are my views via a letter to someone who was rude to many of our friends here at akaQA:
