Your name change is appreciated, not just by me but also by all those struggling to read the site on tiny screens!

Please avoid political asides in the tax forum

The chat forum is open to whatever kind of political stuff people want to post, but the members have indicated that the tax forum should be free of political comments. That includes the types of things you had in your latest post on the Estate Technicality discussion, which I would refer to as "political asides" - not the main point of your post, but a little extra flourish.

Since the comments didn't seem to me to be integral to your point, which was a response to Crow's joking around, and since the comments themselves may have led people to add political responses to the tax discussion, I've edited your post a bit. I tried not to take away the meat, just the sprigs of parsley that might have led the discussion off track.

Please let me know if you have questions about this.

And by the way, thanks for changing your user name from the other longer one. I get a little chuckle every time I see your new name. That's ten letters, for sure!

Thanks for the Drake expertise!

Bob, appreciate your post on my 4562 question. Where are you in Carolina? I'm in Chesapeake, VA--both daughters went to college in NC though. Just curious. Thanks again! AnchormanAnchorman 15:06, 5 February 2013 (UTC)

I'm sorry you don't see the difference

You made a political aside in a tax discussion on the tax forum, where it's supposed to be a politics-free zone, and the tax question at hand was still active. I had two choices:

  1. Move the discussion to chat, and screw over the OP because you couldn't follow community guidelines, or
  2. Edit your side comments, that had nothing to do with the topic and the removal of which didn't seem to me to take away from the main point you were making.

Neither choice is a good one. I chose option 2 over screwing the innocent party. I also left you a note about it, and if you objected to me choosing to favor the innocent party over a side thought on your part, I don't recall hearing about it at the time. I'll check back, and add another note here if I find I am incorrect.

In the situation at hand today, the discussion is outside the tax forum, and I just read the posts you found offensive for the first time a few hours ago, after a 12-hour workday. I thought I had time to actually eat dinner and spend some time with my family before coming back and moving the discussion. Which, by the way, I said WOULD happen. Not that I'd "consider" it. I am SO So sorry that I didn't drop everything, stop my life, to make you feel better. And I'm sorry none of the other volunteers saw this, or perhaps they did and they didn't agree with you. I happen to agree with you (that the post is too political to be anywhere but in the chat forum), and you are pissing all over me. Thanks.

Trillium 03:42, 24 May 2013 (UTC) - edited to add the parenthetical in the last line, and the PS

PS: I added a bit of info to the ATX discussion about when editing might happen vs moving. Moving to Chat is the default action, but sometimes with the milder political stuff on the tax forum, especially when politics doesn't seem to have been the primary impetus for posting, we might try an edit as a proactive move; that's simply an attempt to avoid any sidetracking of the discussion, if possible.

End of the forum

You may have heard by now that the Tax Almanac ( ) web site forum is permanently closing its doors effective June 1. Perhaps you have seen the pink bombshell “Important Service Announcement” when logging in.

Long-time TA user ChrisV2 has volunteered to set up a new website where TA users may continue the discussion. The site is up and running now and has an active base of contributors.

We invite you to take a look and join your fellow TA refugees.
