No on time out.
 

I don't want to question the moderation or policies here.  This site is one of my favorite places on the internet, and I think the careful moderation is a big of that by setting the tone and keeping things civil.

I also agree that it's not cool to call people names because you're grumpy.  And really, if you allow yourself to become angry over things people say on the internet, you're going to have a hard life in 2021.

However, she did start this thread to talk about whatever it was that got her riled up.  It's too bad that she didn't have a chance to explain her issue a bit more fully and clearly.  Maybe she'll come back after the time out.

I've been here since '08 and it has consistently been the best moderated and best behaved of all the forums I've been on. 
Props to the Moderators but it is also a reflection of the Members as well.

Im sure all us Mods  appreciate your sentiment  
As of late   our job has been  pretty much  just routine  cleanup
Fixing pictures,  removing double topics and posts
Its great not to be a  baby sitter. 
Bill , our fearless leader has  upgraded software and  protocol  changes behind the scenes 
that has caught damn near all the spammer / robots  before they get to Steve and I.
Adding to this the quality of  our membership  , Life is good !!!!
Gone are the days of  swooping down and  wacking 1 to 20  spammers a day 
Thanks to Bill
To all our   US members   A Happy Memorial Day

Thanks to all those that run this site, and to those that visit it. To me it's a great down to earth and no nonsense informational site. That said, keystrokes can always be misinterpreted, as can spoken words or body language. I just try to not read to much into them and go with it, and not get my plugs fouled.  Peace out.....

I see she's online now. Once time out is over she'll have full posting privileges as long as she remains civil with no hard feelings. Everyone can make a mistake and should be able to correct it then move on.

I can see why she might get ticked off about the woman’s junk drawer comment, and how she and 650Ed could misunderstand each other in the engine block discussion. It is a shame that it blew up and I hope she will come back and understand that she is still welcome here.
I, too, appreciate the general civility here and how well the moderators handle matters.
