Well, some of you are making it sound like it's an "either/or" situation... like we can't have one frank discussion about
the rules here while still having other discussions about
PCa and that's simply not the case. I've also seen this discussion called a "distratction." If you don't want to read a particular discussion on a forum my suggestion is that you don't click on it. Distraction eliminated.
I, too, have seen this happen on other forums. I am reminded of something someone told me once when moderating, "They will remember what you did (moderating a post) long after they forget the post."
But since I posted my original query I feel the moderators have been straightforward in answering and I've actually enjoyed reading all the responses -- they show we all have differing opinions about
the subject. I get their reasoning for doing it this way but I can respectfully disagree, can I not? I don't know how many 15-year-olds are going to want to read a forum full of mostly old guys talking about
their privates (I put that in 15-year-old terms). But, PC is the word of the day and so I'll abide while posting here. But I'll also look for additional online support where we can be more
open and candid about
what we're going through. It's disappointing to me, after having just discovered this forum a short time ago.
