> Dr. Bob has asked me to announce a couple of changes in policy. He'll update the FAQ when he gets a chance.
> Dr. Bob has decided that posts in violation of the spirit of the civility guidelines are not in keeping with the goals of the site. In the future, Dr. Bob and the deputies will be able to ask posters to follow the spirit of the civility guidelines and these requests will have equal weight to a Please Be Civil. So those posts that are technically civil, but that are perhaps not respectful or sensitive, will no longer be allowed. Dr. Bob recognizes that "tough love" or "provocation" can be supportive. But he also believes that not all types of support are appropriate on Babble.
I think I *get that*.... in speaking of a particular specific, uh, issue, I would think a sensitivity or respect violation could be found as assessed by some. In light of the following by Dr. Bob:
Are we still able to discuss a behavior issue that as a participant here we feel falls under problems with the site? or is that silenced for public discussion?
