Can the staff or policy of the SDMB be criticized without fear of reprisal? How Kelli’s innocuous thread was considered a disruption is a mystery. It was plainly obvious that she did not “have problems with the posts”, but was concerned about and was criticizing policy inconsistencies that quite a few people agreed with. She questioned authority (and I use the term loosely), and was shut down. The Melin affair, an internal one, pales to this. If anything, her thread was inappropriate in the Pit due to the lack of discord and the civility of the posts. This thread is about this meassage board.
I take “Don’t do it again” to be a warning, but I wish to hear about the ‘or else’ so I can be duly warned myself.
