I just got a message stating that the post I created yesterday (inquiring about the controversy going on regarding a popular artists possibly taking advantage of a couple people) was flagged for being inappropriate.
I will be the first to admit and apologize if I am called out. I am just finding it interesting that this post was flagged as inappropriate. I was given the opportunity to edit it.
I went to the post and there is nothing to edit, it was respectful.
There were many replies to the post, they came from different opinions and angels, no one was being disrespectful. The guidelines for this forum were not being violated and I specifically wrote in my post that the intention was to share information.
As artists working in the same community I think it is important we know and understand what is going on, we also have collectors who have a right to understand what is going on.
Respectfully discussing this issue is key to that. Aside from that people were interested. Some of us have been around longer than others and could shed some light both positive and negative.
I don’t have a problem being told I crossed a line but honestly this feels like a few people in support of this artist may have flagged the post (correct me if I am wrong). If you are the artist in question it would have been a good opportunity to quietly observe some feedback from you community.
If you are in support by all means support but don’t censor a conversation. There is a difference between “inappropriate” and “I don’t want people talking about this”.
Feel free to PM me if you had issue with that post that I am not seeing and understanding and I will be more than happy to have that discussion.
Censorship is not cool.
They pulled it and sent me a message. The thread still exists but my original post starting the thread was banned. I was given the opportunity to edit it and repost but if it was flagged again it would go to BB admin.
I am guessing the people who flagged it simply do not want the discussion and assumed the whole thread would be gone. I could be wrong.
It was a post about inquiring about S. Maxwell,
I didn’t see anything wrong with your post.
I saw nothing with the post either. Nobody was arguing in it either so I dont see why it would be closed down other than possibly for the reason you stated
There was nothing inappropriate. It was actually went better than I thought! Lol
That’s odd. I didn’t think it was inappropriate.
Maybe contact an admin and ask what exactly you did wrong?
Hmm I never saw it that I can remember must have been pulled before I could read it.
I don’t think the post was innapropriate and everyone was being respectful, much more so than on Facebook.
I think it’s important to talk about these issues in a calm, respectful manner. Censoring the issue just gives gossip and rumours more power. From what I was able to gather, both artist and buyer had their part to play.
Not at all inappropriate to me. Some people are easily offended.
You are saying
“I went to the post and there is nothing to edit, it was respectful.”
I had a chance to read through the posts and here is what I see:
Yes, you and everyone were very respectful in giving their opinions regarding the two people involved, is it possible the title could present the problem? How hurtful it could be to that person or someone who cares about her, to see her name as a topic title. Feels “drama-ish”.
Please, I am not attacking you @Gabriell, but for an outsider looking in it appears the title could make people think you are trying to create drama/trouble, even though many of us know you are not or is that your intention.( I try to see both sides of situations now). Maybe find a new way to title it?
I missed the post but imagine I will not have the opportunity to read or reply as it has been removed. I have always found your post to be enlightening, supportive, and helpful thus far and am sure this was taken out of context.
I hear you…I would totally be willing to change the title if you think it could be seen as hurtful, and it wasn’t my intention. Thank you for addressing that in such a kind way, I appreciate it.
*I changed it"
Nothing wrong or defamatory with what you wrote. All it takes is one person flagging a post and BB will block it. I’m all for having respectful conversations about things going on in this community. It would be interesting to know why it was flagged though. How else are we going to know what offends if we aren’t enlightened by the people who stop the posts?
Thank you and I feel the same way.
These two people made it very public inviting people to discuss it.
Seriously, I couldn’t find anything wrong with any posts or any derogatory remarks. The title was all I could think of that might have been the reason for the flag. I have never found your discussions to be anything other than respectful, this one no different.
I am sad for you it was flagged but don’t change it, you weren’t hurtful. I am trying to be less blunt sounding, more diplomatic and caring.
bless your heart, Gina. I wish I could hug you. Thank you
I’ve read the whole thread last night and didn’t feel that it was disrespectful to any parties.
And to me, as to someone who is not active with social medias and don’t have any Instagram or Twitter accounts, at least it was educational about what is going in reborn community.
@Gabriell Gina, your post was well written and respectful, as always.
I have only read a little about that drama on the FB pages. I didn’t flag the post, but do feel that it served no purpose in bringing it to the forum(although I did PM a member and tell her that there was some drama related to Shaylen posted on her FB page). It may be insightful to those that aren’t part of those groups and haven’t had a chance to read about it, but not really beneficial to this group. I feel it only hurt the reputation of those artists by posting yet another topic about it.
I could read the replies but not see what the actual post said just the headline.
I didn’t see anything wrong with your post, Gina
