    Yup. I’ve had a comment moderated or two plus I’ve been officially and unofficially scolded. The only thing I don’t really like is that there is no way to appeal a scolding and/or moderated comment.

    @LeonardLady:  oh lord. This is not going to end well. But I vaguely recall being moderated for snark at one point. To be fair- I was snarky to someone who was clearly the forbidden T word.

    @LeonardLady:  lol I remember that thread. I thought it was rather funny!

    I don’t think I’ve been flagged or moderated before. Do they send a message? If so, no, I haven’t been moderated.

    @LeonardLady:  There has only been one time when I have legitimately disagreed with a mod’s decision to scold me and moderate my post. If I could have appealed, I absolutely would have. I would’ve fought tooth and nail just for the principal of it.

    ETA: I’ve never flagged someone. I think everyone should voice their opinion even if it isn’t popular.

    I have had a thread closed by a moderator before. I assume that means it was flagged by someone.

    @LeonardLady:  Yep, once. I posted a pic of my moissy ring in an all yellow room & somebody had the balls to say “Ahh, I see the green everybody is talking about in moissanite.” & then tried to pretend she was complimenting me lol. I had a few choice things to say, we both flagged each other, but my comment was the only one modified by the mods… booooo!

    Here’s the pic btw. I don’t think the ring looks green, just yellow, but it is a J color in an all yellow room & I was wearing a green work shirt, soo… Regardless, who SAYS something about it? RUDE.

    @LeonardLady:  yeah, but people aren’t going to listen to the “play nice” request— especially the ones who are often flagged. I put this thread in the same category as the one you started to laugh about your hairy fingers one being shut down– it’s meant in good fun but isn’t going to be viewed well by the mods and is an easy target for people who want to REALLY complain.

    I have been flagged/moderated.  Honestly, I’m at a point where if I can’t be honest because the OP is only looking for praise or affirmation, I don’t even bother responding.  It’s not worth my time or energy to give an opinion when I’m going to be flagged for being snarky or mean.  

    I find that some people are way too thin-skinned on here.
