I can understand how dozens of "OMG Natasha" posts can be annoying but is it really that big of a deal? However, I don't think that the other side should also not feel limited to what they want to say either in response to the thread, "for example, all this Natasha fanaticism is making me annoyed with her presence in the Prada campaign," or whatever.
Monitoring what people are allowed to post has gone too far and although I do see the reasoning in it, such rules are ultimately a negative force because they limit personal expression and inspiration.
I post on another board that has at least as much traffic as TFS and people can post almost anything they want (except for spam, spoilers, porn and stuff) and people do often flame each other, but overall the atmosphere is so much better. I understand that there needs to be some rules (like how it was in 2006 when I first joined TFS) but it has just gone to far.
Another incident that reminds me of this (although it is not about models): Recently a thread in the "Rumor has it" forum was locked because none of the mods wanted to monitor it any longer. It is a thread I never post in or care to read, however, the incident still really bothered me. That just doesn't seem right to me. Any thread, anywhere, at any time could be closed using that reasoning. And really what is the big deal about it needed to be monitored. If none of the mods want to monitor it, can't they just let it be. The conversation (just like the conversation in the Prada campaign thread) isn't hurting anyone. And if it is contained to a certain thread, I don't see how it is disruptive to the rest of the board.
I so agree with you. I think language is also a barrier. For people who's not from English speaking country, It's quite hard to write my opinion in English. So I just wrote simple short sentences. I wanted to write long, constructive paragraph but I can't cause my english is limited.
I heard in many other forum that tFS has too strict rule, I hate to admit it, but I think it's quite right. Maybe tFS is the most complete archive forum, but please, don't make members fear to write comments.
also, this is fashion, why take it so seriously? It should be fun and free.
