    rumors are flying like crazy but if I divulge who told me what I can be banned--right now it might be a good way to find out the truth here and who is spreading BS. Prohibiting private speech also prohibits free speech.

    Not to be rude, but is there any part of "private" that has escaped you? Seriously? Conversations shouldn't begin with "please don't post this in any open forum".

    I don't think they are that private with some people. Everyone knows that there are sudden mood changes, they become must more sensitive to everything, could snap at the smallest thing; nothing men do is right, etc.

    Doesn't sound too private to me.

    True, but the same happens in real life, you learn who you can talk to and who you can't. It's happened to me here too.

    It seems to me that anything that is titled "Private Messages" are private by definition and were meant to be private.

    :dunno:

    Unless you get a release from your source it will have to remain in PM. (That doesn't mean you can't generate some PM's of your own ya know!)

    Not a chance in hell you'd be banned for stepping up and naming names - but I'd do it via PM to Jim and Jim only.

    I'm Asking you...no PLEADING with you to tell Jim who the source of the BS is. Seriously, for the sake of the board, dillo.

    The source of the BS is the arguing by the higher ups and the ensuing silence---nature abhors a vaacum so itr gets filled up with assumptions and guesses----the mods and the admin or whoevr needs to come clean or the guessing will go on---your just asking for it by YOUR silence
