Some people really need to lighten up and accept that people are different. People who get offended are looking for something to be offended by.

There are posting guidelines. If your post violates those guidelines in the view of the Fool, they pull it. The Fool also chooses to have a means (fool alert) for people to notify them of posts that may be outside those guidelines.

The fact somebody may be different does not give them the right to mold the site to fit their tastes. The Fool has every right to dictate what content is on their site. "The offended" have every right to expect the site to reflect the guidelines publicly outlined.

I think the people that need to lighten up the most are the ones that post unacceptable material (as outlined in the guidelines), often knowing it is not acceptable, and they whine about it getting pulled.

I don't FA posts. So I am not in the "offended" crowd. But, I whole heartedly support the Fool's right to have the site they want to have. Every post I have had pulled deserved to be pulled.... and if ever one didn't deserve it in my view, the Fool in owning this site still has the right to whatever subjective judgements they want to make regarding their property, this site.
