I don't mind the term "tinfoil hat wearers" being thrown at conspiracy theorists so that should be okay, too.
Tin foil hat is almost always a derogatory term. Itís used as a different way to tell someone they are crazy. So you might itís okay, but it is definitely not.

Being that this forum deals with things other people think are crazy, itís a term that gets tossed around a lot. In order to keep this forum a safer place, I donít want it to be used.

End of conversation.

I will make a judgement call on Ostrich People when I see it used.

I really do try to be fair, but I have to walk that line between people who may be overly sensitive and those who think itís fun to upset people.

Why does there seem to be fewer threads in this sub-forum now?

We usually have an uptick in October, but then a lull for the holidays.

Umm, it only says you're the mod when a person is signed in.

Oh, how I hate the passive aggressive Umm's posters add when they try to school someone.

The person was signed in or wouldn't be able to post. The poster was signed in when asking, 'Are you the moderator?' so the response given by Tallysmom was spot on.

The bold printed name is a dead giveaway too. Does her name show as bold when not signed in?
