Rob at 007 Posted July 25, 2022 Share Posted July 25, 2022 First thing to remind everyone are the rules of the B'Hive forum: For the first time since we launched this dynamic and exciting forum 6 months ago, we had to remove an entire thread. The initial post was an eye opener, and it was allowed, and the dialog was great with solid references and links to more information by we who were brave enough to speak up at first. A few seasoned members let it alone, with wisdom, but a few others with valid knowledge and real experience were willing to banter hoping to open minds and provide a valid discussion where others might land here and find what they were looking for. Everybody involved are highly respected members of this online community. Yet, the dialog ventured away from our goal as a Baconian forum and it was obvious some members and visitors were feeling offended, the professionalism and objectivity of the discussion was raising concerns with several viewers. It was hard for some members to not feel they were being attacked on a very serious level, without any provocation. Ultimately as multiple complaints were being made, we took action. Sad that we got to that point, but it has always been expected. And it will happen again. We hope all members involved will still be active and eager participants and contributors to this forum, but we do need to maintain respect and objectivity here on all matters. Politics, Religion, Conspiracy Theories, etc., are sensitive areas. Baconians come from a world-wide range of ideas and even in small sections it is rare that two Baconians will agree on everything. In fact, that is unlikely. And that is something that has held we Baconians back for decades when trying to stand up to Strats who have a single focused claim (Willy Shakie), and Oxies who appears to be a "club" of Loonies making up a reality for their Oxen (gassy) guy. We Baconians do not need to agree on everything, but keeping the dialog on-topic about Bacon and respectful to anyone who reads the forum is KEY. We can and will disagree, and we should discuss ideas when we do. But as true Baconians, we need to listen and learn, with RESPECT at all times, or at least as much as possible. Thank you to those who spoke up to Flag content and contact us with concerns. We are a community, and appreciate that. Yet we are and have been very open to a vast scope of ideas and will always be. As long as nobody feels there are being attacked for what they believe. 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
