    Report, but no response

    Hello,

    Recently, I have reported two posts that have insinuated that people of religion are insane or irrational. They did not come right out and say it, but they both stated that non-religious in particular were either sane or rational.

    As I said, I have reported both of them, but nothing has happened. I believe that the forum CoC does not allow this type of behavior, but perhaps I am simply misreading it.

    I will link to the post in question if you want me to, but I would rather not right now so as not to point fingers at a specific person.

    I have replied via PM as follows:

    Thank you for responding.

    But the forum CoC says to "be respectful to all members at all times. Insinuating that a certain group is either insane or irrational does not show respect. Is that not true, or am I simply misreading the CoC?

    There are times when it is just as irrational to expect others to ALWAYS say EVERYTHING in a way that YOU prefer (emphasis is for comprehension, not to convey emotion). What I am trying to say gently is that you are over-reacting.

    Re: Report, but no response

    Sorry...I just realized that we are having this conversation in the Resolution Center. I originally thought I read your post in the staff's Reported Post forum, which is why I replied via PM both times and copied/pasted here. My mistake.

    Same reply, but if I had it to do over again, it would be formatted more appropriately, as a direct response instead of as a note for staff to know I am dealing with the issue.





    Doh!

    Re: Report, but no response

    Then I will leave it at that.

    I still personally believe that I am right according to the CoC, but I will not argue it any longer.

    Thank you for your time.
