OPEN LETTER TO ADMIN! Where are you? Why have you let this go this far? I re member well the many times you shut KP topics down for less than this! If you are no longer in charge, please tell us who is, so situations like this are stopped. I doubt that I am the only one who is sick to my stomach by now. Yes, I know, I do n't have to read it, and actually, I don't, beyond a few words or title. PLEASE, STOP IT NOW.

I just don't read them. I pick and choose what I want to read

I do the same. I’m in charge of what I chose to read. Simple. I don’t need administration making that decision for me.

I guess the point I am trying to make is it doesn't belong here, and there is more every day. Yes, the Titles alone stop me. I fear for the life (?) of our wonderful forum.

It's the choice we have in life...read it or not...this list is open enough for everyone to voice their opinion in the proper sections. If these posts are bothering people, isn't it simple enough to go into your settings and shut down the setting that closets all that you hate?...I don't belong to all the sections as I'm not interested in say "machine knitting", but I'm sure not going to yell at the people who do belong to that section. It's so simple..I don't get why you're yelling at Admin for something you don't want to read.

I have concluded that you just like upsetting yourself. It's a free country, have at it!

Looking at the date you joined, we are both originals and have been thru the KP wars and we, and KP have survived, but this seems to trouble me, as you can tell. Can you tell me, if I, also ignore it, it will go away? Don't understand "grownup"..assuming we both are, but that's not important..KP surviving is.

I choose to read the political posts. I like to hear the differing opinions from all countries. As long as the discussion stays civil it can be very educational. When it turns sour, I back out and go read another topic. I can do it all by myself. I don't need admin's help.

I happen to know A so was not yelling. That would bother me if it were not funny.

Some of these statements are so dangerously vile. I was new to KP and actually read and replied. The response was so vicious and yet rather humorous because it was awkward, weird. Those telling this woman to grow up aren't actually being honest with themselves or others. New KP'ers may be stepping into a very messy situation with rude, even threatening remarks being made toward them on these topics. I think you need to grow up RookieRetiree and admit that New KP might be quite vulnerable. Those who have been on KP awhile know better. If one reads a topic and are just wondering what is this topic all about because they're new then discover threats and vile, strange responses. They may even disagree with the main topic writer and then find themselves being threatened as happened to myself when I was new to KP. I dropped that topic and made sure I never again wandered into THOSE topics. Is it necessary to learn the hard way? Do any of you have vulnerable people in your lives? Wouldn't it be best to protect new KP'ers instead of forcing them to learn the hard way?

hildy3 isn't alone in thinking these topics get vicious and strange. Admin needs to remember new to KP members are vulnerable. I wish there was a way to highlight inappropriate topics.

I agree it is a simple matter to read the title, well, for the most part and select what we want to see or read. I just wish members would put their posts in the proper sections. Then it would be simple to unsubscribe to a section we aren't interested in. Maybe there should be a section opened titled, "Free For all" or maybe, "Duke it Out" I know people in the USA would understand the meaning. I'm sure people in other parts of the world have similiar expressions.
Is this a good idea? What do you think?
