I came back a few days later and to my surprise, I received several more comments on my previous post about navigating friendships in a tense political climate. As I mentioned in my original post, I was uninterested in discussing politics, but more about how people are navigating relationships when there’s an ideological divide. I’m disheartened to see that in a peaceful forum, under a category called Share Your Truth, that I’ve been silenced. I was looking for a helpful dialogue and it is upsetting to see that this too, is now being turned ugly. Whoever reported it, I assume you don’t agree with my post because I mentioned being on the more liberal side of things though I made clear that I didn’t want to have political arguments. I think it is sad that a post like mine can’t simply exist without being reported. If you don’t like it, move on. There was nothing inappropriate about it.September 25, 2020 at 1:33 pm #367243anitaParticipant
I agree with you, there was nothing inappropriate about your previous thread. I am sorry that a member (who, I do not know) reported it as inappropriate.

Thank you Anita. I’m just worried now that I’ll be banned from this forum or something. I really enjoy coming here, not just to ask my own questions but to read and comment on other posts as well. It’s frustrating that my post was flagged and I hope it doesn’t have some other consequence now. 🙁September 25, 2020 at 1:46 pm #367248anitaParticipant
I don’t see any reason why you will be banned from this forum, none whatsoever. I am sorry that your thread was reported, my posts there to you were reported as well. It never feels good when that happens. If you want to contact the owner of this website on the matter, you can go to the top to HOME and click CONTACT underneath.

I too really enjoyed this site, it was a forum to explore the deeper meaning of life and seek some guidance on life’s struggles. I am not political, over the years I have discovered that any political views I had were flawed, however democracy is better than the alternative. I admire individuals from any political persuasion who put them selves forward as democratically elected candidates, as to do so exposes them to ridicule, harassment and even worse. I felt this site was a politics free zone, however when I read your post and the replies I saw a political consensus, in this case liberal , so I pressed the report icon. I felt guilty and re-read your post and saw it’s true intent and thus responded with my view on not demonising you’re neighbour and that politicians are a reflection of who collectively we are at a given time. Someone then reported my post and your posting thread was blocked for further comment , that is why I started a new thread.
I have been harassed by a regular contributor on this site. I wrote about a deep emotional issue in my life, as with most emotions they defy logic. This contributor called me lier and assassinated my character. I asked that my personal postings be removed and now I am very cautious on this site, my advise don’t trust everyone who contributors on this site as some are charlatans pretending to care, when really they are feeding their own ego….. be careful on this site is my advice.
wishing you joy and good health

Time moves on and what was an important issue back then is nothing now …. that is the beauty of time
