    Default A trollop is not necessarily a bitch.

    A trollop is more like a slut or whore. There are good natured trollops.

    I find it funny that a site with so many so called progressive thinkers are mad about a little foul language.

    This site is moderated, not censored.

    The use of word "bitch" clearly depends on the context; its indiscriminate use would not be appropriate.

    The forum rules and policies are often worked out in the course of discussions in the Moderators Forum, so some responses could be adjusted.

    I find that the moderator's effort if frequently under appreciated.

    After reading Kliqs post in the Sarah Palin thread Im wondering what peoples opinion is of their posts being edited by a moderator. I for one would prefer a complete deletion and a PM telling me why. I feel that if a post is edited it changes the meaning of your post but it is still under your name.

    That would be difficult considering the number of forum members, plus it would be self defeating. The whole point of editing a post is so the general membership doesn't have to deal with poor postings from others.

    Yeah, do you think we have moderator-assistants to engage in dialogue with forum members over deleting a few words from their posts?

    And track down and remove all the spam?

    And answer PMs from forum members requesting we edit or delete the posts of other forum members?

    Im pretty sure I was asking the opinions of regular members what they thought of moderators editing their posts.

    And since we are the ones that have to do this work, we shouldn't respond?

    Well yes because i wanted to know how the general population of this forum felt about it.

    Since you have responded we might as well discuss it. May I ask when moderators began to edit posts, Im pretty sure it wasnt done when I joined the forum (2004)

    See above. The answer is the same.

    You'll just have to filter out the moderator-responses from the general-population responses.
