Hmmm, I wonder if this might not shed some light on my questions about who is involved, and what their biases might be, when it comes to enforcing the fool rules of conduct.

I don't really know, but I have certainly always been curious given the uneven and arbitrary decisions on what is ultimately allowed.

Hi B!

Perhaps a refresher course in what the various TMF designations do would be of help:

So, as a Home Fool, my job is to do the following:

"Home Fools, as designated by the H icon, expand beyond the role of Welcome Guides by engaging and enriching the discussions. These Home Fools encourage high quality discussions; help maintain a welcome environment for all posters, and post interesting content."

Based upon my interactions with hundreds of Fools over the years,I think that I've generally done a decent job of living up to that charge.
Further, as a Home Fool, I have absolutely no input as to enforcing the rules of conduct or any other policy matters for TMF.

However, becoming a TMF'er does not cancel my rights of free speech.

The post I made simply pointed out what I thought was the somewhat humorous irony of what I perceived to be a bit of a double standard ( please note the smiley face at the end of my previous post ).

My objective was not to offend; rather to point out that there are always two sided to every story.
