It seems to be working at present, so yeah, can't disagree.

Nice of you to let those of us that have joined know that you think we're pathetic. Some of us can self-monitor, but occassionally it is nice not to have to. I quite enjoy being able to tell the odd off colour joke or use an expletive to describe how I'm feeling about something without being jumped on by moderators.

Marigold didn't anywhere in her post say that members of the NC were pathetic.

Indeed. Its a huge stretch from what Marigold said to take it as that kind of insult.

All of a sudden I'm more coming round to Bodgers 'us and them' theory. Come on guys, chill out. Or I'm sure that more people will start wondering whether Bodger was right.

This discussion is nothing about the Naughty Corner, at it's root it is about people trying to impose their personal values on other people.

Meant to put a wink after the first sentence, but missed it. But in response:

-the inference by several people has been that the NC is there because people can't self-monitor
- people who can't self-monitor are pathetic
- ergo NC members are pathetic

pretty easy train of thought to follow.

'People' eh? Trying to impose their pesonal values. Well, thats 'people' told.

Bodgers post wasn't unreasonable. I didn't agree with him, I still don't agree with him. I don't see any 'people' trying to impose their values on anyone else, and I don't like your implication. Be specific with your implication or, please, don't make it, because a generic 'people' comment like that comes very, very badly.

Bodger suggested something that while most of us didn't agree with, wasn't unreasonable, and it wasn't a rudely made suggestion. Can't we just leave it at that?

People seem to be forgetting that the first rule of NC is that you can't talk about anyone who isn't a member of NC.

So the one thing it certainly isn't is a place where an inclusive club and talk about the non members, that doesn't happen, at all.

My comment wasn't made to Bodger, but in general terms in that people seem to have a problem with swearing and silly jokes, and having fun, but don't seem to be able to let others just get on with it, without making a huge fuss.

In the interests of balance I also think that people who get the vapours at the sight of certain four-letter words are a bit pathetic .

I seem to recall a rather extensive debate where you made your views on that quite clear. Only one that generates steam (from my ears) is Pope and I get moderated in the main forum for making my views on that one known.
