    This one - Study Guide: The Twelve Basic American Principles

    There was no rule broken so far as I can see. I read the rules before I posted the thread. I think that the mod was very short sighted in her assessment. Or just pushing her weight around to demonstrate herself. I think the latter is likely, though, given the tone of her post upon closing the thread. I merely posted links to web pages. I also briefly credited one of the author's statements. Not only that, the post contained links from several different sources in a broad range of relative facts.

    What rule, specifically, did I break? Explain, please.

    Thanks.

    Read the rules about copy and pasting, your OP is outrageous, simply the worst full-on copy and pasting I've ever seen at this forum.

    It's absolutely correct that your thread was closed.

    Also posting this new thread and whining doesn't help.

    Complaining about mod actions is a little bitch move.

    I'm merely asking a question.

    You are breaking a rule simply by starting this thread. Moderation is supposed to be discussed in private messages not on the forum.

    That's why the Skipper always whacked him with his hat.

    So you're saying the skipper should have deleted Gilligan. Great, that's just great.
