Excellent blog SnS.
I think you may have found the solution to end the madness when you said:
I'm taking control of my blogs...I don't need a moderator...if someone wants to argue or stir up shit...I will delete their post. Seriously.......we shouldn't have a moderator here "babysitting" adults people. It's time we all start acting like adults.
In fact I had just put the following as a comment on another blog but should have known that someone smarter than me would have beat me to it. Had I read yours first I could have saved my myself a lot of typing.
I have seen some blogs that are in compliance with the rules that disappeared and the blogs author then complained or asked why, after it did nothing violate anything. Though their blog was compliant they allowed the comments to develop into a free for all. I have seen several comments lately that the blog’s author can delete individual comments. I think comments become part of the overall blog and if the author did not keep the comments compliant that may have been why it was deleted. Just my thoughts
