yes, I figured that was part of the problem. I addressed that issue in my PM to her. You've probably seen my thread. It is not a politically oriented thread and is very small and mostly technically focused on inflation and the economy and stocks. My thread was never competition to anyone. I told her that the only reason I redirected was to take things that would potentially be offensive to her off her thread, so I wouldn't violate her rules. She will never believe this, but that was my only agenda. Her reaction was all out of proportion and was exactly the kind of thing I'd expect from a liberal. I mean, it's like I dropped a piece of food on her kitchen floor and she pulled a nuke on me. It was all out of proportion to an honest mistake of mine. In fact, I shouldn't call it a mistake, because I did nothing wrong. I was just trying to do the polite thing. That reaction from her was truly bizarre enough, but then she went wacko on GZ and a bunch of other people who pointed out to her that I did nothing wrong. I've only seen that kind of behavior on the extreme leftwing lib threads. She demanded absolute conformity of thought and loyalty to herself even as she was acting in a demonstrably wrong and infantile way for no discernible reason.

I think why all this matters now is that many of us are really tired of the threats, censorship, and bullying of conservatives on these threads and out in the real world. We pride ourselves on being free and independent and we don't like anyone trying to be our master, whether it is a leftwing Socialist or rightwing bully. So the reactions are justifiably more visceral.

Honey Bee was wrong to do what she did to both GZ and to me and to the several others who she tried to bully into silence or conformity. If she would apologize to all of us, starting with GZ, then maybe Humpty Dumpty could be put back together. But how likely is that?
