Let's hear more from the ladies. 

Agree, less questions to Sen Warren.  

Don't do this.

 

What's wrong with wanting to hear from the ladies on the stage other than Warren?  Warren had fielded like 80% of the questions at that point.

Seems obvious there you weren't referring to that...but inferring she wasn't a lady. 

Also 6 days is pretty harsh for that.

The point should be 6 days for a PERCEIVED insult of a Democratic politician vs. almost always 0 days for OBVIOUS and INTENTIONAL insults of the President is pretty telling and alarming.

People have been suspended for insults of the president. HTH

Someone was suspended for such a post about Sarah Sanders.  This claim of bias in the moderation is fake news.

Hard to know where the line is, I was told a personal attack by a regular wasn’t a big deal and to only report if “way”over the line which is fine with me as long as we can dish it back. My experience though is that we can’t dish it back. The post mentioned above doesn’t seem across the line, much less way across the line.

Nope. Pretty sure the point is that he used poor grammar.

Im not sure how long it was...as i said already 6 days for that was harsh.  But suspension length seems NFL like...arbitrary at times.  But there may have been other things that led ti the length.  I dont pretend to know what all the moderators saw.

The "line" moves often. Good luck trying to pinpoint exactly what that is at any given moment.

Thanks, but, I was hoping to get the mod's thoughts. 

@Clayton Gray

Did you think I was questioning Warren's sexuality?  I don't think there is any question, in my mind anyway, that she is female.  Or did you think that I was saying she wasn't a proper and polite person?  Does this new rule hold true for male candidates; anyone that suggests someone isn't a gentleman should be reported and given a week long time out?

TIA

Elizabeth Warren , my senator btw, is my most hated politician.Ever.  Not because she’s a democrat , I loved Deval Patrick, not because she’s a woman. The reason why is simple

He probably thought that’s what you were saying because that is the clear meaning of the words you used. 

If you didn’t mean it that way you should be more careful.

Disagree.  Might I suggest you take Henry's advise here?

First - Context is everything.  If you, or Clayton, were watching the debate it should have been obvious that when eoMMan said, "Let's hear more from the ladies." he wasn't referring to Warren since she had fielded a large portion of the questions up to that point.  I was just reinforcing that.

Second - The term used was "ladies".  You claim to understand the meaning of that word, however, you must be unfamiliar with it's use as polite form of reference.  To jump to the conclusion that it is was being used as a synonym to gender is completely wrong, and frankly, insulting in of itself.

Come on folks, this is the 21st century.  We should not presume the gender of anyone.  That is a private and personal descion.  We need to talk in gender neutral terms unless someone specifically identifies themself that way.

Suppose he had? 

I want to propose a change in the rules around here. It won’t be accepted but what the heck I’m going to propose it anyhow: 

We should never be allowed to insult or disrespect each other. We should always show each other the greatest amount of courtesy and be excellent at all times. Similarly, we should never make generalizations about large groups of people (all Democrats are socialists, most Trump supporters are racist,etc.) 

But we SHOULD  be allowed to insult, denigrate, make fun of, mock, politicians of all stripes. And nobody should be offended by that.

I don’t disagree, but it’s not my board, and I don’t have an issue with how the board is run  

To me it’s obvious what tony meant, but also obvious he was joking. My issue is with him now parsing words to pretend something different.

For context?  The context was someone said the women should get more questions. You agreed and said Warren should get less. The context of agreeing, immediately followed by saying warren should get less, shows your meaning. 

If you meant what you claim, you’d have said, “agreed, but Warren should get less” or “agreed, except for Warren.”

It’s frustrating having to explain how plain English works to folks in this forum.

Last night. I affirmed it today.

Again I have no idea whether or not Don't Noonan is a liar in real life. But I DO know that the majority of his posts in this subforum are filled with falsehoods and dishonesty. That's really not debatable at this point.

If you think that's frustrating you should try it out when people completely ignore the context explained to them.  One simple "but" after the comma would have cleared it all up for you huh?  And it's telling that you used your own version of what EoMMan said.
