The title indicated what the thread was about, that being how to respond to someone who constantly thinks you want to hear the rants.
I didn't see the thread in question, but can I ask a favor?
It sounds like it might have been a really interesting thread that might have been helpful (if I'm interpreting what you're describing correctly). Instead of venting here (
) about the fairness of it all, could you just restart the thread with a different title, so it stays within the limits set by the mods and still allows discussion of the topic?
It seems like you're spending more time arguing this issue of the title instead of just starting a new thread with a more acceptable title! The mods said the topic was ok, so just go with that and name it something different! Problem solved.
Now we all know that putting "vent" or "rant" in the title isn't allowed. Whether we understood the rules as that before doesn't matter. We know that now. We learned a lesson here about the running of the place and can tailor our actions from now on accordingly.
