MrsMac I have been on here since April of 2003. I have seen LOTS of great changes. I think there were about 10-15 active members at the time. (KitchenElf was on before me, so Im sure she remembers) Anyhow, this IS a very special place! I have been on countless other boards and none come very close to the feeling and family we have here. There were a few spamers and rude folks. One of them that I remember said something very rude concerning Dove's dog. I think we took care of THAT person.
Quick story. I love the movie Anne of Green Gables. SO I decided to join the forum. Now if youre not familiar with the movie, it has to do with a heart-warming tale that has family values written all over it. So, MUCH to my shock, there was MUCH talk about s e x and a gay lifestyle. (among other not so childsafe things!!)
There are certain places for those things, but not in a forum where young children can visit. Furthermore there were 3 VERY VERY rude, condecending and downright MEAN people on there. Needless to say, I spoke my mind in a relaxed but firm way. I mentioned that there are children that visit the site and this is not a proper forum for such things. After all.... the forum was managed by the folks that made the movie! How could they allow it?! Well, I was booted via the admin for being 'rude'.
I called Sullivan Entertainment and spoke to the owner/operator and told her about Discuss Cooking as a golden example of how a good forum and community works. I just hope that they understand, and they look at THIS site as an example.
