OK, Mods, I am asking for an explanation...
Edited on Tue Oct-09-07 01:01 AM by TomInTib
I, being tragically computer-challenged, am not aware of any other option by which to inquire...

Why was this:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

moved to the Lounge?

I have never posted a single thing in the Lounge (at least that I am able to remember), and I truly believed it should be in GD.

Frankly speaking, I think that the denizens of GD would be more appreciative of a post along those lines than would be the Lounge dwellers.

Any logical, rational explanation would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Tom

on edit:
just send it to my Inbox, this is not a pissing contest.

1. Uhhh,....
Is everyone asleep?

So is this the time window when we just get crazy?

But seriously, Mods, I want to know and understand the reasoning behind that decision.

I am not yet so old that I cannot learn a new way to play.

Again, I thank you for any light you can shine on this.

Tom

2. I'm not asleep...
I'm also not a moderator, so I can't answer this one.
Try here: If you feel a moderator has acted inappropriately, please contact a site administrator (Skinner, EarlG, or elad). The site administrators will decide what response is appropriate, if any. http://www.democraticunderground.com/forums/moderators....

How's Nina doing? If she needs some help interpreting lab reports, let me know. Goes for you too, by the way. :)

4. If I had intended to post it in the Lounge, I would have done so.
I am way too old to participate in Lounge activity.

And I am not very comical.

So I will remain content to fuck around in GD.

Comfort level, you know.

5. You typed "old" but I read "mature".
Is that what you meant?

There are older folks than you who post on the Lounge. It is there for non-political topics, and I think a hot dog recipe applies.

8. Doesn't work for me.
Life can be weird like that.

Doesn't do any good, trying to figure it out.

It is what it is.

And the Lounge is far beyond me.

It is what it is.

14. My life is My Life...
I call my own shots.

And that's a fine place to be.

And "you aren't who you are"?

Following camp, Laurier?


Yeah, I got tired of being me and I became someone else.

Big effing deal.


We all live on the same round ball.

Actually, folks such as you and I are dancing on the head of a needle.

10. I am in total agreement.

Hey, Lounge lizards, get on with your bad selves, but I just don't visit there. If a moderator moves my post to the lounge they might just as well have moved it to Knitting and the Alpaca Community or something equally as random.

I'd rather they lock it than moving things hither and thither.

11. This is the first time I have laughed out loud in days...
Thank you, canetoad.

I have been through the Valley of Misery in the last week or two.

I really needed that.

No shit.

16. Lounge? What is this lounge of which you speak?
Perhaps we should ALL head over there, and start some shit.

Just kiddin', lounge folks. Really. Just yankin' your chain.

No, really.

But maybe not.

But I am.
