A number of additional posts have been removed from this thread.
Just a few posts after my mod note, a member minimized the feelings of some posters who are unhappy with the changes coming to the Court of Angels.
I specifically gave examples of posts that treated the opposite opinion in that way and indicated that they were not appropriate.
A few posts later, another member who felt affected by that post, explained in detail their reaction, and criticized some aspects of the original poster's words.
Policing other members, calling them out in public and telling every reader who passes by that they were (to quote my note) "wrong, wrong, wrong", isn't allowed. Nor is applauding a post that contains such statements. So, if you +"1'd", "Bingo'd", "Here here'd!!", "This'd", "Good Post'd", "Bam'd", or "I agree'd" this reaction post, I apologize, but your posts were removed, too.
What to do when you find a post that disregards our rules or the direction of staff? Use your rep, if you think it appropriate. Then, use the "report post" thread at the bottom left of every post. Let the mods handle it. It never, ever is your job to take an enforcement role in our public forums.
We understand that this is a subject that nearly everybody on this site has a heart-felt opinion on and passions have been running high since our community got word of it.

Thanks for your understanding and your serious consideration of what ignoring our requests could do to the survival of this important thread, going forward.
