When I'm writing this, I'm not arguing or being mean or ridiculous, I'm just stating the truth. But either you should loosen up just a little bit and make exceptions about that "If one part of your post is off-topic, the whole thing is off-topic" rule, or that rule should just be abolished altogether by someone who can. It's ridiculous. I understand about how things shouldn't be off-topic when you post in a thread. But come on, what you just told Maddie in the Youtube Zoey 101 videos thread was going overboard. She wasn't turning it into a "video editing discussion", how can you say that? That wasn't off-topic, that bit (a bit for goodness sakes) she mentioned about editing was about Zoey 101 videos, Maddie makes them you know. So, I just don't understand how you could say that her post right there for mentioning that BIT about editing, a Zoey 101 video no less, was off-topic.
And that TOS violation I got for my post in the Fanfiction thread was a bit too much too. It was one sentence I mentioned about the Seddie kiss, about how I was in a better mood that day, that's all. Everything else was completely and most excellently on-topic, talking about some of the first Zoey 101 fanfics I had read, when I discovered that site. I can see me getting a TOS violation if all I had put down was that one last sentence about the Seddie kiss, I would understand that. But that wasn't the case. If that ONE sentence when everything else was completely on-topic bothered you that much, the least you could have done was edited that one bit out, or told me to edit it out. There was nothing wrong with the rest of that post, it shouldn't have been deleted.
All I'm saying is that I think you could loosen up a bit and make exceptions with that "if one part of your post is off-topic, then the whole thing is off-topic" rule, because unless that rule gets abolished, how can we feel comfortable about posting ANYTHING then, because of how you just called out on Maddie for being "off-topic" in the Zoey 101 videos thread, really makes me wonder. She was not being off-topic, or turning it into a "video editing discussion" thread. I really don't know what else to say about that one, it baffles me.
I'm not going to argue about this one, because I know where I stand. That rule, especially when it comes to just one sentence, or just a bit for goodness sakes, when everything else is on-topic (and this doesn't apply to Maddie because she wasn't even being off-topic) is going overboard. Whoever thought that one up takes the cake.
This might be a "monstrous long" post, but you know, I have things to say. That's all.
