Thanks for voicing your concern and for your well thought out post. You clearly have a strong interest in what is happening in the StartupNation community forums and we are grateful to you for that.
It is an exciting and rewarding endeavor to open up a forum for members to connect, learn from and mentor others. We are extremely proud of the manner in which the StartupNation community reaches out to and supports one another. The smarts, wisdom, experience and just plain old being nice to one another that goes on here every day is a joy to behold.
We do receive messages every day from community members who express concerns about specific posts. The `Report abuse` button is available on every single member post. We review each abuse report and assess the post using the Community Forum Posting & Private Messaging Guidelines
. Some of the posts are in clear violation. Some are clearly not in violation. And some walk the line between the two. It can be a challenge to make the call on those but we do so with the spirit of the stated goal in the guidelines:
The StartupNation forums & Private Messaging are a place for people to connect, learn from and mentor others.
We understand that at times some members may not agree with the assessments that we make. We must, however, make the call and trust that the StartupNation community is a more valuable resource due to our diligence.
By all means continue to let us know how you feel. Offer your praise, critique, suggestions & feedback. We`ll continue to do our very best to make StartupNation the best it can be.
Cheering for your great success,
