I missed the issue as business is booming and this type of childish 'play' on a real estate network venue is not what gets my attention. Glad I missed it!

If you want to discuss your political bent, preferences and proclivities on Active Rain, you are digging in the wrong sandbox.

Some posts of recent memory have not only nothing to do with real estate but stray into the world of conflicting political opinion which benefits no one.

Clay, your complaint is based upon your perception. I have asked questions that were deleted and rightfully so due to content...not to prove self-righteousness or to censor.

 

Most likely your demands will go unfulfilled.

Clay, It's important when you make an accusation to get your facts straight. 

The photo wasn't anonymously changed.  ARMS stated in the comment stream that editorial license had been taken and the photo exchanged.  You were offended by the Trump photo, and my option was to leave it as is, delete the comment or attempt to inject some levity into the situation.
I chose the last option. 

You want to be offended further, that is your choice.

I don't worry about whether ARMS is trustworthy, or "woke". They playfully replaced The Donald's photo with a horse's mouth (I'm sure, partly due to your complaint) in an effort to be funny and even-handed, and you're ready to tar and feather them.

More important things to concern ourselves with.

Those who want to get all up in ARMS drawers, how's your business? 
Focus on what you want, quit bashing those who keep this site alive and if they did not, the whole thing goes away.

ARMS is not anonymous. You didn't call the comment out, I did by calling the member a jackass.

We've got people here that just constantly want to poke a stick at something just for the fun of it.

.

Then there are others that just want to start a fight & play both sides of the fence.

I am an advocate of discussion, exchanges, conversation and dialog and find it all fascinating, profitable and easy to do. However, it does take a minimum "two" and that is where the effort is needed i.e. all sides agree or not. In the absence of "agreement" to come together, ground rules are necessary and are the exception. Your request is in play. Let's see what happens...

If you don't like the way a business is operated. don't patronize that business.  This method of "voting" has served customers well for quite some time.  There are plenty of other real estate forums online.  Surely, you can find one that meets your needs.

Making a general statement here - not specific to ARMS.

Repeat for those that may feel inclined to jump on this and react to something that is not being said.  Shocking I know, but it happens. 

*  People with the keys have a certain level of "power" over those who do not have the keys.  

*  An open microphone or camera provides a means to be heard regardless of what the message is, or how truthful the message is conveyed.

Not that's what I call funny!!!

Hey, I've been in the AR penaly box so often I lost count.
It their sandbox. Be a big boy and understand that.  The one who owns the sandbox can ask if you been Covid shot, make you agree to TOS and TOU conditiiions.
Your agenda to pursue the SHAMING andd HUMLIATION of a ARMS member is transparent. Perhaps beign more CREATIVE in your counter offensive would be more entertaining for us all. After all, if you get 'silenced' as I have been so often, you will be out of play, not able to be heard by those you think you can influence on AR.
One of the things I love about about writing is when the effort causes someone to reveaL one of their big fat emotional buttons. When that happens the button needs to be whacked.
Censorship in a country where EVERYTHING is censored is an emotional button that will send one to the nut house.
It's their sandbox. And you AGREED to play by their rules, just like the very profession in which you are engaged requires a similar conformity.

I created this question because of the behavior of ARMS reps that seem to believe they can change a members post without consequence. If INTEGRITY AND HONESTY is important in Real Estate, is it not important here in the Rain?

As helpful as ARMS can be, to overstep their own guidelines and insert their PERSONAL issues as a form of Censorship and then laugh about it shows that ARMS representatives feel entitled and above reproach.

Is this the first step in the downward spiral of Active Rain when individual within the Support staff shows themselves to be untrustworthy and an attempt to be woke?
