I have been off sick and did not know of Jennara's locked thread until now. I am truly sorry you feel that there is a 'clique' type environment here. I can honestly say that it is no ones intention to 'favour' a member. Having said that, some peoples personalities just *click* and friendships are formed, through repeated contact, both here on the board and through personal emails- sometimes phone calls even.
This does not mean that we disregard the feelings of members who dont post as often etc- all members are equally important to HW and your issues, questions, queries etc should all be met. But there are people who meet here on a daily basis and talk through their problems etc and in that way, we get to know each other alot better. This is not to say that those who post less frequently are of any less worth- not at all.
I have not been a mod long- ive been a member up until the last 2 months or so, and never did I feel that the Mods on this board played favourites. I thought they did a great job of being inclusive and supportive of everyone.
Now to Jennara's thread, i cant say for sure what happened, but as I see it, the thread became off topic and was going round in circles. It became argumentative which was unecessary. Both mods involved (Kitt & Nanners) did their absolute best to respond helpfully and honestly to Jennara. At no time were they disrespectful. If you dont believe me, re-read the thread, as I did.
Im not certain ive answered your question the best i can, as I am new to being a mod- but i didnt want your post to go unanswered- hopefully other Mods can fill in the gaps that I have left.
All the best-
