Why do we have to go through the admin. to change our usernames?
I do understand to a point, for keeping things from getting out of hand with inappropriate text, and I agree with that part, but, I don't agree that we need to wait for the change and the eye over our shoulder in this accelerated www. There are programs out there to filter out and work with the feeds and to keep things lined up right. And, why is it that way; that we need to be monitored here in Instructibles concerning our user-names. We are supposed to have intelligent enough caps on that make us decent people; being that we already have the capacity to be productive members in society, inventive and resourceful, helpful, and competitive for all purposes in research and creating stuff that is new, or old stuff revisited.
Is this site that bad? When someone gets inappropriate with things, they have to have outside correction, and then they get watched for avoidance of any future haps because of past haps.
This scenario seems to be the case here too, as with countless other sites; but all members get affected through blanket rules brought on by the ones who would show their colors in the lack of their morals.
I would ask all who would otherwise give no caring thoughts and understanding on how you would present yourselves on the internet or in the life around you; please rethink how you would put yourself out there for others to see and read about, talk to or have accounts with. The way you look and appear to people who don't want their site trashed with that type of garbage of inappropriateness, is going to make Admins make blanket rules to counter-battle it, thus affecting all users, and creating the atmosphere of distrust in the site among the users ~vs~ the admins.
I also wish you well in your future for making good choices that affect you and many who you don't even know in this world that would otherwise experience unfortunate reasoning and control factors as a result of the ugliness that has to be cleaned up...
We are all a part of the community in this world, we need to respect ourselves more by carrying a good set of morals and using them ( I don't mean get bigger egos, or fine tune so we can lash back when confronted by our own garbage output). You would be amazed at how different your lives would be, along with the people around you. You'll gain much more respect than you have now; trust me, I know it from my own changes to become a better person.
Start with a smile to some one, It would make people feel happy and smile back; present yourselves with discretion and respectfulness, you should see changes quickly...much respect and trust is to be gained... (c-:
