RE: Vote on Natal Charts
I was sitting back for a while not saying anything cos I was interested in what opinions people would have and what kind of consensus would be built.

I didn't want to see this devolve into the next big forum drama (too late for that.)

Way I see it when it comes to moderation. People get pissed when you act as a moderator. People get pissed when you don't act as a moderator. Win win huh!
If we do take action, what precedent does that set given the way people have been acting up to get to this point?

I voted "don't give a shit."

Filox posted honestly and framed it within the context of science. He genuinely sought a scientific perspective on the astrological prediction.
In science we ask questions all the time and use observations to confirm or deny that stuff.

Say the thread was moved... What then? What's the next step?
Move more threads? If you want to get right down to it there are allot of threads that could be moved around. Who determines what gets moved and to where?

From what I've seen, forums that get heavy handed with moderation piss more people off than if things are mostly left alone. Most people are well-intentioned and voluntarily put things in the right place. I can assure you that Filox was well intentioned when he posted and he doesn't deserve this kind of uproar over something so small.

So, I'm thinking about starting a tta pharmacy to sell high quality happy pills, etc. Maybe some Cialis and weed for Erx . I think a drug cocktail for Chas. Maybe viagra and valium or xanax for a pleasant, relaxing boner.
An online pharmacy built into this forum would be a roaring success.

Past my bedtime. Nighty nite.

Nah, I don't need pharmaceuticals.

Just making a point and having some fun doing it. Thumbsup

Guess everyone has been told...

Free speech means don't disagree...got it...noted...good to be clear on the rules.
