So after months of not being able to share my opinion on DNA INFO ive decided to join every block ..

    Bienvenidos Lisa.

  • Oh hello

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    Hahaha...I know nothing. Welcome.

  • Lol ..

  • It seems like if someone shares something on here that the mediator doesn't like they get kicked off..is that true

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    It's sporadic...just try not to let people suck you onto their miserable online vortex...a lot like Dnainfo that way...haha.

    Its true. I had my post and account deleted recently for just asking questions. Its naked censorship. But if you like an echo chamber that reaffirms you bias then you are in the right place.

    @RPforlife - Welcome to the neighborhood.

    It is not a matter of the moderator not liking something. It is a matter of adhering to the rules of the site. This is not a public forum, as much as some want to talk about censorship. As long as you are reasonable with other members, even if you do not agree with one another, then you certainly will have no issues.

  • Lisa, it’s hit or miss. One time there was a street cleaning day from 9a-3pm. I came home from the airport at 8pm that evening (I was nowhere near the street during that time that day of the week and hadn’t been in the neighborhood period days before it). I grab a spot that still was open. Go upstairs and go to sleep.

    I wake up and go to my car at 7:30am and i had a nasty note written on my window that the city had to clean around my car because I refused to move it and they expect to see me cleaning that area of the street by the day’s end. I called in late, went back inside, printed up a bunch of letters and slid them under doors telling them to out themselves and where to find me because I demanded an apology based on their false claims. I sought out the person here everyday for 7 days, each post less confrontational than the previous. Most didn’t last an hour.

    Sometimes the rules don’t matter. People assess your tone and you are screwed. They determine you violated the rules when in a court of law they couldn’t possibly prove you did. Good luck. Speak your mind over here. I’m all for it.

  • Kisse Mad Scientist

    Brian, if you kept re-posting the same personal issue every day, it was likely removed as spam which is against the site rules.

  • First one should have never been deleted or the second. I didn’t care about 3-7 because obviously I was making a statement. We’ll see how she does. She knows and has read the rules by now.

    This place is super uptight though. No ifs, ands, or buts about it

  • Which I also suspected and makes sense

  • This comment has been removed by EveryBlock staff.
  • Also perplexing is that some comments that are blatant violations remain posted,even after being reported, while others are removed almost immediately.

  • Welcome, BTW.

  • Rob

    Be the change you seek Maggie.

  • I'll try Rob. Hey, how do you get a post removed within seconds, anyway,Rob? Is there a special way to report a violation that brings urgency to the situation? Is there a kind of 911 way to report violations?

  • Jeffrey Littleton Sheridan Park Neighbors Administrator

    There is one way that might work better Maggie...DM me.

  • Will do!

  • headsup not available

    how do people get reinstated -
    Is this site controlled by Comcast?
    where does freedom of speech come into play?
    frankly this site has me paranoid -

    Seriously, lotta snowflakes on this site (not directed towards anyone reading this). Unless someone uses profanity or calls someone a name that wouldn’t be said on your local news, threatens harm, there’s no reason to report anyone. There is way too much of that over here. Wasn’t like that in the old days. Everyone just needs to take a deep breath.

  • Well said mute. And for goodness sake let’s not scare off Lisa. We need a stronger posting presence on EB. If she brings the heat, we need her onboard. Period. Let’s get this place going again.

  • Live From Rogers Park

    @Rob Henry Kissinger once said that "even paranoiacs have real enemies" and some people are legitimately terrified by that even though, in many cases, it is based on an underlying disorder. Harsh moderation, as Wazzy commented, can be a contributing factor and those poor people need our empathy and compassionate understanding.
