Okay, I've just read (well, skimmed) through fifteen pages of posts about what we can't talk about here, and I just have two questions:
1. DottyG, what's left to talk about?
2. VorFemme, just how would one go about putting a diaper on a snake? They don't have legs, so I don't see any way to hold it in place.
There are lots of things left to talk about if done in a respectful way. The above question wasn't very polite considering Dotty is trying to do a service to new people here.
Well, I read through fifteen pages of "don'ts," and I'm still confused.
What are you confused about?
It's a folder that was made as a courtesy for newcomers. It lets them know that these topics (look at the OP, as DottyG suggested) are "Hot Topics", meaning they have either been done to death or are very contentious.
It doesn't say you can't post about them, or that you are not allowed to post about them. Although, it might be wise to perform a search and see if you can find your answers in a previous thread about the topic before starting a new one. That's a general forum rule anyway though.
Also, it would seem that there is still plenty to talk about here, the popularity of the forum is a testament to that.
DottyG went to quite a bit of work to make that list. Thank you for that, Dotty!
Edited to add: CR, while you may not have meant it to, I also thought your "question" to Dotty was less than polite. I'm sure you didn't mean it that way but some clarification would be nice.
