Ok, just to be sure I did my homework.
I had a factual question about copyrights and/or trademarks, so I posted it here:
But JillGat saw fit to move it here:
Now, this perplexes me given that I find stuff like ‘Ask the black woman’, which would cover the “less than cosmic” part and ‘Which ‘bike’ should I buy’(incidentally, OP by JillGat) and ‘How many sex partners?’, both which cover the "poll"ing part. So far so good. But over in GQ, I find things like (Which car should I buy?(polling?), 'How the hell do you whistle?(this is cosmic?) and ‘What does this Klingon phrase mean?’(not cosmic, polling and should be in the ‘Cafe’). These are random samples - not the rare example. So what do I do to clear up my confused little brain? Well, I could e-mail the mod who moved it… or, better idea, since there is a forum specially for this (as pointed out to me by Eutychus55 and Manhattan):
I can get an answer and help other boarders not to make the same mistake - if there was one. So I post this, “A question for JillGat”. Straight, to the point, right? I explained my confusion in a clear, thoughtful and polite way. The only problem is JillGat doesn’t answer, no one can speak for her so the question drops off the current board.
Meanwhile, back over in IMHO, my original question flounders because people in this forum don’t respond well to these kinds of factual questions. (To his credit, Reality Chuck took a swing at it, which I appreciate (though he did sound a tad condecending), but apparently doesn’t understand the nuances of this as opposed to straight writing.)
Now I understand that Mods give us their free time and they can’t get to everything. I also appreciate the job they are doing. But, this has been on the boards for a couple of days and I would like some kind of response. It’s not like I’m calling anyone an asshole or that I’m a constant problem on these boards. I try to post appropiately and abide by the ‘don’t be a jerk rule’. Just asking for a little consideration.
I would really like some ‘factual’ feedback on my original thread, and since as cazzle put it, JG probably just skimmed it (inaverdentantly missing the real question), I’m asking that she re-examine it and please move it to the proper forum. Could any Mod either bring this up to JillGat or address it yourselves?
P.S. I notice during composing this thread, cliffy offered some good advice, still there might be others with different experiences/ opinions/ info so I believe my request is still valid.
