    Good. Thank you all. Your responses have more than answered my question. I now have a pretty good sense of what to expect when I post on this site and what the moderators consider actionable violations of the TOS. I know it's not polite to walk into a new social space and begin poking at the rules right away, but I'd heard from numerous people what a hate-filled site this was (and of course have read the hate-filled posts with my own eyeballs) so I figured being less than 100% polite wouldn't raise any eyebrows. I wanted to know if hate was literally ALL that this site was about, if it was some kind of machine that lured in unsuspecting fragile little Morrissey fans and chewed them up and spat them out. I feel unchewed so far, but who knows, it could happen yet. My main interest is in posting about shows, sharing photos and impressions with others who attend (and those who can't but are genuinely interested in hearing). I'm hopeful that there are enough sane and sincere people to hold a worthwhile after-show exchange, but I guess we'll just see...

    KS brought up a good point about registered posters that negatively rate posts. My question is if you block a registered poster can that also block their ratings of your posts? That way you aren't bothered by their opinion of your posts. This may already be the case, but interested to know.

    These are very good suggestions. I still would like to rename the rating buttons though.

    You know things that morrissey would say like or song titles.

    Imagine buttons like
    Vile, subspecies, kiss me, disappointed, bulbous salutation(in a good way) etc.

    Please tell me this can be done.

    If wishes and buts were candies and nuts everyday would be Christmas. I heard this saying once.

    I think we have to try and take this one step at a time. A lot has been put out there to digest. Let's not be gluttonous with our desire for change. Measured, careful steps are what is called for here. No need to step on any toes or bite the hand that feeds us. It is a call to arms, or thoughts, or emoticons.

    Time is on our side because we are the righteous, the just, true to our beliefs in the knowledge that what we espouse is undeniable, unquestionable and factual beyond reproach. Now is our time. We have earned the right to have our voices heard...nay...acted upon!

    Let the weak attempt to deny those with the will, strength and fortitude to stand and fight for their convictions. We are the few, the proud, the registered posters who are willing to fall on our swords to try and make the necessary changes that are essential to improving this site for those who post today and those yet to come.

    There's no guarantees in life. Write what you want to write and be happy with it. But if you are going to hang, you're gonna need some thicker skin.

    No that's not possible at this time but I'll look around to see if someone made a mod to make that happen.

    that would result in nobody reading KS posts. maybe she should rethink her request.

    Ketamine Sun, can I ask you why you feel the rating system is more or less important too you?
    I feel you are annoyed and dislike it when your posts are being rated off topic, redundant or disliked? I understand your arguments and it would be a good thing to change them but you give the none-entities to much praise by bringing it up.

    You seem to have your own take on all things Moz and I quite like your posts.
    They are from very different view points and many times surprising.
    You do also have a certain confidence and humor that may be overseen by most of the anonymous trollers that rate your posts negative. Why would you care about what they say?
    And, last but not least, a certain amount of negative rated posts mean you hit a nerve.
    Meaning there was substance and impact in what you were posting.
    Cheers

    you are the only one who seems inhibited by the rankings. nobody else seems to give a fuck about how they are ranked. maybe some therapy is in order?
    :sleeping:

    face it, you are quite redundant, just about every single post is the same yadiyadiyada.:banned:

    Give it some time. :brows:
    In the mean time, stop hitting your head against the wall. ;)
    I am worried about your health.
    Get a nice refreshing shower and after that a nice glass of red wine.
    With some cheese. :D
    OMG, why did I say that?! :squiffy:

    maybe establish a KS subform at the OFF TOPIC forum, so she can commiserate with herself 24/7 without fear of an off topic rating.:drama:

    end the drama for the rest of the readers.:couplekiss:

    Thus completing the circle-jerk echo chamber of a 'safe space' where the delusional Cult Casualties can carry on with their fantasy that reality has not intruded on their bizarre ritual worship of the tin-pot tosspot Morrissey. This is the increasing direction of the interwebz, where once people accepted they would have to risk exposure to alien views, the bedwetters such as KS now demand their asinine narcissism be shielded from challenge by consensual reality. It would be a very fitting end to a site that once championed Free Speech to construct 'walled gardens' where The List gyrate in ever-decreasing circles towards oblivion, oblivious of the fact that the vast majority of rational observers see them as mentally deluded victims of a gross charlatan snake-oil singer. Morrissey's wealth has cushioned him in a padded cell of arse-licking enablers who have signally failed to alert him to the fact that he is now a beclowned asshole. I guess it makes total sense that his dwindling deluded admirers be given similar kid-glove treatment in lieu of psychiatric support.

    LOL!
