It would seem OK. They are having a good day today.

But please, let's not stray from the point of the thread -- it is not to question or talk about the Moderators. It is simply to offer a suggestion that I feel would enhance my understanding of how to remain in good standing on TOTV.

So nice to get an explanation – you made me feel like an adult. I think many/some, well at the least I, would love to understand more about participating in TOTV. There are times I understand why a thread is closed. But there have been many other times where I scratched my head and re-read the posts, thinking, “Ok, if I were Moderator Queen-For-A-Day, why would I close this?” and was unable to posit an answer. So, my suggestion would be to include a reason, whenever possible, as the above quoted moderator did. Some suggestions off the top-of-my-head (but I’m sure there are many better suggestions).

Personal Attack - Thread Closed
Political – Thread Closed
Too far off Topic – Thread Closed
No longer helpful – Thread Closed
Timeliness has expired – Thread Closed
Lack of interest – Thread Closed
Inflammatory - Thread Closed
Uncivil - Thread Closed
Because I'm the Mommy or Because I said so - Thread Closed

etc., etc.

I would also love to get a PM whenever my personal post is removed. Sometimes I don’t get it. Sometimes I do – LOL like the time I posted to a classified ad for a large, outdoor Pink Flamingo, asking the seller to please don’t sell it here since I wouldn’t want to live next to one. HaHa – What was I thinking? So happy that post was removed faster than you can say Jiminy Cricket.

Anyway, the Forum does say . . . Suggestion Box. Thanks.
I like everything about you.

I saw the one-liner this morning and thought it was a troll. The Moderator was right on it.

There was no question as to the OP's intent, and the mods...also knew it immediately.

Some threads go off track in an interesting way.
IMHO this is a perfect example of a thread that has gone off track, and become uncivil.
