Seriously. That's so weird. Can we password the forum or something if it's that big of an issue? What's the point of having the forum if it can't even be used?!

Re: What is the deal w/ the Sensitive Subjects forum?

It has nothing to do with conversations on procreation or recreational attempts at it. What we are trying to limit is the way some of these topics are brought out. We understand that sensitive subjects are just that but the site owner wants has decided to put a cap on just how *senstitive* the conversations can get.

That's all.

Re: What is the deal w/ the Sensitive Subjects forum?

But mamas are being PM'ed about talking about their recreational s*x lives and being told they can't (the thread I'm talking about was not inappropriate IMO). Which is it?



Juan, I love your avi. Is that a real cat?

Re: What is the deal w/ the Sensitive Subjects forum?

While I totally get that we have to protect any kiddos (under 13 or over 13) that may register on ds and maintain family friendly, I must say that sensitive subjects is an area many of us NEED, really. Life is hard, marriage is hard, talking to family and sometimes even close friends who may come into contact with the DH you are raving mad at isn't an option, kwim? And some details of issues are, well, sensitive.

Many of us can't afford the counseling either, and senstive subjects has allowed many to vent, process, get an idea of how to solve issues and move on, just a little bit healthier.

What are the limitations and rules of the forum (ie, how should posts be worded so that we aren't breaking the rules)?

Did he tell you I threatened him

In all seriousness, this place has evolved for me. When I first joined, I was just a pregnant wife and I was working 40 hrs a week and just shopping for diapers. Now, I'm a WAHM and pregnant again and this is my social outlet most days. I have a few close friends (okay one) see the poster above me . Other than that, I have my mom and MIL which I don't feel comfy talking to about certain things. Life tends to close in on us a little as we take care of our children and some of us need to vent/celebrate/sort things out online. Does that make sense? I don't want to break the rules, but I also think the rules need to be fair for everyone

Mamas are being PMed by moderators about threads that are not along the lines of what we want to be displayed on the site. What are these lines? I will write them below....

I think so, with some awesome photoshop action anything is possible!

The keywords for the guidelines & limitations are "Clean, Mature, Supportive, Sensitive"

We do not want people discussing fantasies or dreamland stuff. If they are talking about sexual experiences then it better be about health related stuff (like pains or other female problems). Posts should be seeking support, specific answers, or a listening ear. We really want to stay away from stories, gossip, and fantasy.

Now, I know that this is debatable and not exactly cut and dry; but, they are guidelines. This is what we are looking for when we moderate the SS forum.

Re: What is the deal w/ the Sensitive Subjects forum?

how can you talk about $#x in a clean way?
i didn't even get to read one of the posts i was referred to before it was deleted. and from what i hear it was TAME. some had posted they were going to try something for the first time. While i don't condone what she did i was curious to hear about her experience....... but the thread about it was deleted before it got to happen.
I think this board along with society is taking censorship too seriously. its an opt in forum. people know what can go on in there if they open it up in front of their kids its their choice and its not like whats written in their is visible by the whole board!

I've also seen things posted on the main boards that in no way should be out there and they weren't deleted. I don't know if they still exist but they did a few months ago......

I know the post you're talking about, and that would have definitely fallen under the "fantasies and dreamland" category that we want to stay away from.

The post was about her plans, and while the actual words may have been tame, the content wasn't and so the mod team decided it was one of the posts that needed to go.

As for other posts that are just out there, the mod/admin team only has so many eyes, so if you notice posts that you feel are misplaced, then you can use the to report them so the mod team can evaluate them and move them if necessary.
