Trigger-Happy Admins

Either CM Admins are trigger-happy, or someone is going crazy with the "report" button. Are we all so thin-skinned nowadays that we can't even deal with reading a POLITE question on a topic we don't care for?

  • I'm sure this will be deleted, too. Admins don't like anyone questioning their power. :)

  • I know ..I guess race is off limits on this site..All those race questions were not derogatory or bashing, I don't understand why they were deleted..

  • I'm not black but I'm sure some black people would take it as bashing.

  • That was exactly my point on the question that got deleted..Blacks get so upset if whites mention race..

  • You can't blame them for thinking that their race is being bashed. Think about what their ancestors had to go through.

    Anyway, on to a different topic. Have a great day!

  • My ancestors went through a lot, but I am not walking through life with a chip on my shoulder.

  • American Indians went through a lot. I'm part American Indian. It's not like blacks NOW have been through what their ancestors did. And I see plenty enough of blacks on here playing the race card. Has everyone forgotten that white is a race, too? And I haven't seen any black bashing questions. There is a lot I don't know about black history, but I'm lucky I have a neighbor I can ask questions.

  • It's really very simple:

    * Unsolicited advertising (in journal posts, messages, photos). Advertising is permitted on profile pages, and journal posts that are in the CafeMom Marketplace.
    * Slurs aimed at race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, disability, gender or sexual orientation.
    * Cursing that does not display a yellow "yield" sign.
    * Personal attacks against you or another member on CafeMom.

    As long as your question (or answer) doesn't break any of those rules, it doesn't get deleted. If you are asking a question that deals with one of those subjects, you need to phrase it in a way that it's not offensive. If you're not sure, change the other race/religion/etc you are asking about to your own race/religion/etc and see if it would offend you OR your mother. If it would, you need to reword it.
