As explained in a couple of posts already, this is a public forum and so just because you start a thread, you do not 'own' it. That means that whilst you can request for text only or memes only, you cannot admonish others or condemn them for contributing in a different manner.

There is enough (somewhat unnecessary) regimentation on this forum already, which includes deletion or moving of posts because per the ppl in power, these posts are found to be off topic. Forum members, excellent at Astrology, have left this forum solely because of such over-regimentation. E.g. Julia Karmic Astrology.

Trying to impose (even more) 'rules' makes a thread lose its appeal because now i have to function/contribute the way you want me to. And why? It reduces the chance of a good discourse. If one can read a text, one can also glean the msg. from a meme. If you don't like memes or find somebody is overdoing it, move on. The thread What are you learning from Covid is full of memes, but not a single one from, but I just skip the many repeats of memes with the same msg. or respond to that msg.

Some of the memes that have been posted on previous threads were so large in size that it obstructed the flow to such an extent to make the threads unreadable.

There are contributions; and, there are deliberate distractions, some repeated identically over and over, that make no contributions.

I liked Julia, and was sorry when she left.

Special demands and no distractions can be had on private forums. This is a public forum - teaches one tolerance and the art to ignore those that one feels 'deliberately distracted by'. I do it every time I visit my What are you learning from Covid thread

On this thread, no one's being restricted from sharing their own thoughts, quoting those of others, or sharing links to charts, graphs, pictures, articles, cartoons, and photo-shopped caricatures.

No one should be restricted from sharing in any manner they want to, as long as following the forum rules. Nothing else applies and no one has the right to restrict anyone and tell them how they are to post. If you find somebody's contribution "gibberish", you have the choice to ignore it and move on. You canNOT tell others - what is or isn't allowed and that they cannot post pics or memes. This is not your private thread. Full stop. If you want to continue trying to justify feel free. I have nothing more to add.

Your opening posts is an instruction through the choice of words. Sorry David, I am not going to agree here, simply because it is not right and you do not own this thread on a public forum.

Any forbidden words? Any restrictions on trolling?

In the Trad forum, no advocating for including the Outermosts?
In the Mod forum, no denigrating including the Outermosts?

All Capital letters is considered shouting, and shouting a random thought is unnecessary in a random discussion.

If all Capital letters is like shouting, then:


Screamemeing is like....overdoing things.

I like the idea of one thread where people can come in and talk without having to weed through dozens of Jup memes monopolizing the thread.

I like memes. I like words. There is room for a meme free. There is room for memes only. And everything in between.

UK, cute soul mate! Close proximity. Have fun sister!

Re: Random Thoughts, strictly Text

Thanks Opal. I saw him at the shop and thought he was really cute and had not seen him around before. Then a couple of weeks later right outside the livingroom window I saw him get out of a car then a couple of weeks after that I saw him by his car again, I assumed he was visiting somebody nearby. But this time I wrote on a post it note my number and Ďcall me í and walked casually by and placed it under his window wiper.

Next day he messages my number and asks who I am and I pretend he was parked in my space and he said he wonít park there again and what car do I drive and I say well I donít drive and he said why did you message me then and I said just making conversation lol. Ahwuay, turns out he moved a couple of doors down about 3 months ago and we have some mutual friends. He continued to message me and add me on fb but Iím waiting until I get my hair done to reply again (lockdown hair).

If he's into you, he's probably working out (lockdown physique).

Cold Fusion, if they are intertwined, how would you describe the difference between an easy and hard aspect?

I think any aspect can produce either the positive and/or negative aspect of one another.

So it depends on the person and not the aspect or planet etc at all?
