I hope it is appropriate for m e to share a few thoughts here;-

I really hope that previous thread wasn't locked JUST because I found some of the comments insensitive and inappropriate.

If that is the case and that was the only reason the thread was locked, then I am surprised. I have a higher opinion of the moderators and believe that they lock threads because of a certain 'tone' of the conversation, the use of words such as 'ugly' and 'arrogant', and the "I know/speak the truth and you are wrong' attitude. I was rather hoping that the moderators locked the previous thread because they could see how some of us were concerned by the direction of the conversation rather than because we had got involved.

If threads are locked because one person finds some opinions insensitive, then the right to freedom of speech and opinion is under question. Freedom of speech has to encompass both the good and the bad, the compliments and the objections and has to allow direct response and not just generalised counter-opinion.

As for Elijah reading these comments. In my personal opinion, and speaking only on behalf of myself, I should imagine that he tolerates comments about her dress sense, aware that fashion sense and style is a very personal, idiosyncratic choice.

However, I imagine that he finds comments such as 'his girlfriend is manly' or 'he can do better' as being quite insulting and hurtful. He may realise that this might happen regardless of who he is dating but I am sure he still finds them upsetting.

I hope I have not spoken out of turn here and I seek only to express my personal opinion. If anyone feels that, in expressing my personal opinion, I am potentially enflaming this conversation, I would be grateful if they would briefly say so here and I will cease my involvement. I would not wish to be the cause of another locked thread.

you havent enflamed anything honey, i think some people take personal offense to odd comments. i cant remember who wrote what on that thread but i wasnt bothered by any of them. best forgotten about now, every one has an opinion at the end of the day and you cant please everyone. im way to relaxed of a person to get in a frett about posts and stuff. xxxx



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Due to the recent and continuing unrest on A&F, which resulted in conflicts, this thread will be locked indefinitely. Please read HERE for further clarification on the matter.

Thank you.
