I have been just a reader for a long time, and have watched all the drama that has been going on the past several days.
and where if this led to debate I would probably have been banned myself for doing so.!!!!
I believe you have already debated and argued with someone for several days to the point of insulting just like that person, so shouldn't you ban yourself then?
She certainly wasn't in the right for being rude or whatever, but she did make some valid points on how this forum is moderated. As a standby who doesn't contribute or know anyone I do see unfairness in many posts with different members.
I would suggest if I may bringing someone in from another place to be a moderator, therefore they have no one way beliefs, nor do they 'know' anyone so there would be no one accusing of unfairness.
You have given a lot to this thread and continue to, but I don't think you or anyone who has such stern beliefs in one way should be moderator. People are allowed to disagree with you and your beliefs, and that doesn't make them wrong because its not written in stone somewhere. I don't think she ended up disagreeing correctly, but I have seen you numerous times pretty much tell someone they are wrong for voicing their opinion that doesn't mesh well with yours. This is a healing place, everyone is different and has had different experiences.
I do think its a shame that such drama unfolds, because you and that other member have very different backgrounds but both seem to have a lot of knowledge and could probably work together and help others instead of being at eachother's throats.
And going back to another post you made, something about you saying gathering up troops was bad and to refrain from it, then why use the word "defeat" and "lose face" in your response; defeat of what? A battle perhaps? An argument? A debate? You called upon the entire forum to pretty much take sides, and judging by the responses they too interpreted it like I did.
The particular member also made some good points as well that many members seemed to agree with. I don't really think she was attacking you or even trying to.
