offended me.)

I'm no English major, but these statements are both subjective expressions of being offended.(IMO) If the above option had been made clear to KK I'd be willing to bet she would have changed her syntax rather than being blocked. (although I certainly can't speak for her) It's just a shame that it has come to this type of hair splitting, when there are good people being run off these boards when they seem especially to need them. The sometimes micro inspection of certain posts, while completely ignoring obvious infractions is a bit maddening. Would'nt it make sense & save time to focus on the blatant posting violations & let the more ambiguous ones slide? I just feel the administration might better serve this sight (which hopefully is important) with less attention to minutia. This issue has been hashed & rehashed. I think it will continue to haunt these boards untill there is some type of civility policy reform or there is no one left here but a bunch of "Stepford" posters.
Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts on this. You are as insightful as you are gracious.
