Is it right to tell others what NOT to write about here at myLot? No!
March 8, 2017 9:28am CST
It seems the whole world is going nuts....politicians are fighting, people are arguing over any and everything then can. Countries are always fighting each other. Now words are being slung here at myLot. It seems someone, no names will be mentioned here, wrote about a particular topic pertaining to a situation at myLot. Another member read it and thought it was a bunch of 'hooey', wrote a post and made no bones about why that person should not have started that discussion. Hold your horses - this is a site where as long as you don't go against the guidelines you, me and everyone else can start any kind of discussion they/we/me want. If you don't like what someone posted, don't bother reading it, skip over it and move on. Life is too short, get over it. Not everyone wants to read what I post, that's their right. But it doesn't take away my right to post it. Photo from Pixabay

I thought I was the only one to see that. But I was not going to let the moment pass me to say something. Not to mention making another post about it to bully another. What bad message I got from that. I was so sad for the original poster who was just upset. I am very glad to read your post this morning. Good for you. I hope I did not use the word bully wrong but that is how I took it.

I despair of people sometimes. Some discussions may not appeal to others but as long as they are within the guidelines people have every right to discuss what they wish. My experience on the site has been mainly good. I don't know who the author is but it is not their place to discuss why a discussion shouldn't have been started.

That is one reason I like this site so much. We can rant and rave about whatever we wish. We all have the ability to move our curser on if we don't like one and chose something else instead. I dislike know it alls that think they know the rules and they have to be the only one who knows the rules. Hog wash on that. I have written several posts giving others some ideas about how to do better on here. It is just my idea and not written in granite or anything else. Just my ideas and things that work for me. We all have the right, as you stated, to write about whatever we like.

Only the official Guidelines (and the Admin who implements them and interprets them from time to time) really has any authority to tell people what they should not post ... Hang on a minitue, though. Aren't you telling people that they can't post about what people should not post? I think I need another coffee and a quick course in unassailable logic!
No it is not right, unless you are admin here, and that person is not. I am wondering if anyone reported either of the posts concerned. If the second person thought that the first post was unsuitable then they could have hit that button and let admin decide and likewise the same thing could have been done with the second post

@mysdianait No names were mentioned - now if someone said, "MysD is complaining." Then that might be something to report. But if you speak in general terms, like I did in this post, then I don't see a need to report either. If inappropriate words were used would be another case of reporting. The rebuttal discussion was just rude and not necessary.
