    Does anyone think that Smooth as Silk deserved to be BANNED for her posts this morning?

      Well it doesn't look like she started it, he called her "pathetic" to start the whole thing going. However she did make comments to others that were definitely against policy. Sounds like this guy baited her in one forum, then trolled and reported her on a separate forum pretty childish really.

        I'll be the first one to say that some of the things she said were out of line, but she wasn't the only one in the pissing match either.

        I agree it reads like she was baited...he seemed to be trying to get a rise out of her. Her comments I also think were totally against policy...OTT but I suppose the defence of provocation can be applied here!

      reporting someone because you feel insulted is childish. But the rules are clear, if you break them, and get reported....3 days no forum. It is someones paycheck. Everyone needs to grow up a little.

        I agree that is messing with her money! It's not cool but rules are rules! I don't get why people come on here to create havoc and bait others into getting angry like crazy! At least she'll be back soon.

          Yeah...I get pissed off with some people too but I'm too afraid to get banned so I don't bother...what I don't get is why her antagoniser wasn't banned as well or both their statements simply... snipped.
          I'm all for the rules but fair is far...Oh well....

            she was bigger. to get banned, you need to be reported. hp hq isnt arbitrarily killing people off. if a person is reported, its looked into. im sure when the offense breaks the “rules” its dealt with. no reporting=no banning.

      It seems so, more important question, why should I care? Right or wrong if I insult someone I expect to be banned temporarily so I can cool down and maybe do something productive like write a hub! I doubt its a forever ban so why should I care? The forums are not where we make our money here assuming that is why we write here.

    She spoke her mind to a few of the bible thumpers this morning, then they in turn came back at her.  The worst part was that one of them posted a thread demanding her ban, when in many ways he is the one that started the whole thing.  It's bullshit either way, but I just don't understand why she is the only one that got pinched for it.

    I honestly do not believe she should have been banned it was not necessary. The other hubber who also made comment should have been banned as well for creating a thread that was quite unprofessional. If you ban one then both should be banned, I don't know what has been happening lately but it has became very depressing. sad

    I have a suggestion for a new feature.  Angry hubbers should be allowed to buy "indulgences".  You could engage in prohibited activities if you made a charitable contribution to certain organizations.

    I could write, "That guy sure is a poopy head"  If I send a $50.00 check to the United Way.

    There are half a dozen very clear personal attacks in her recent
    posts.  When a personal attack is reported to us the user making the
    attack will be banned from the forum.


    but she didn't make the attack. she was attacked.

    I vote that the religous forums should not be included in the "All" listing. I', flat tired of sorting thru them to find something interesting.

      I think I can put my humble opinion on a table too. First: I am sure administration did not have a choise: WE ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO INSULT EACH OTHER. PERIOD. We all here with different backgrounds and experiences and opinions and we have to learn to respect that and to ARGUE not INSULT. We can share our opinions, but without putting down the other side.You can laugh at somebody, but you cannot degrade, even if somebody is not right, he/she will learn. That's what life experience is about. People change their beliefs and opinions. If I say something no one likes and everybody will be shouting at me with F* words and calling me names just because they feel like it , it's not going to be free speech,it's going to be free chaos, something no one wants to be in, I am sure.
      Second: To snip somebody's opinions is like exercise the same unnecessary control and manipulation we all hate and I am sure HUBPAGES are above that.
      Third and the last: There are lots of stupid, reckless,plain dumb, unconsiderate, lightheaded people around and if we cannot tolerate them and deal with them and live among them calmly and reasonably,too bad, that just shows our immaturity and instability and nothing else.
