How far is appropriate?

When it comes to websites censoring and editing their members' intellectual property?

What about when there are discrepancies and inconsistencies in regard to how rules are upheld or enforced, whether between sections of the site or between members?

If a site is determined to no longer be user friendly, what is the appropriate action for users to take at that point?

Should sites care whether their administration is user friendly?

  • sites should notice when their staff obviously do not communicate with each other, are not competent to do their jobs, and/or are abusive to the merchandise...because that's really what people are here - we're not the client, we're the product being sold to the advertisers. They better hope their advertiser's don't notice. Well, except for their "new" advertisers who probably have very low standards.

    Whoever posted the abandon ship meme the other day- good suggestion.
    I am, however, sure the powers that be will blame a member as opposed to themselves.
    At least, that has been their MO.
    Like bullies in a schoolyard.

    If I beat you up, it's your fault because you didn't do as I said, which is to bend over and take it up the ass with a smile on your face.

  • Bandgeek, stop your damned whining. Sheesh. Porn ads are awesome, and it's healthy for young kids to get an eyeful of naked chicks, preferably on a daily basis. Don't you know anything?!

  • We get it, Dard. You don't care.


    Imagine what the world would be like if everyone lived that way - disagreeing with people for attention rather than having actual thought out opinions.

  • "They better hope their advertiser's don't notice."

    So then I wonder... is there a way to make sure the advertisers notice?

  • They SHOULD care but since they provide the service, they get to call the shots. We can always refuse to play BUT it is their ball we are playing with.

  • Just because they get to call the shots doesn't mean they shouldn't worry about whether their product is good or not. Because if it isn't then they'll find themselves out of business. That's just common sense when it comes to providing a service. You keep the "customers" happy or they go somewhere else, especially in a place where there are plenty of other companies who would love to poach your clients.

    Yeah, You'd think...
    apparently, that's not always the case though
