As sad as this looks morally, being 102 is not easy. I am sure this landlord of 30 years knows something about this woman's condition that we do not. An assisted living option may be out there for her. I am certain she will not be left homeless on the street, if she was, the entire country should know about it, and be ashamed.
No, the child should not continue to receive abuse from the teacher over this. That would be beyond unprofessional. The parent has every right to voice his concerns about his child's education. You do not call a child's attempt at math sad and pathetic. If the child is struggling, then he needs more help. If it's a focus thing, there are other ways to work with a child that doesn't involve put downs.
Hopefully the child is able to switch to a different classroom and end the year in a better learning environment.
Here’s what you don’t see that makes this possibility somewhat flawed, for lack of better words: let’s say that we give users the ability to delete their threads.. that means they’re also deleting the posts of anyone who posted in their thread. Say Jimmy John makes a thread with a reasonable title, that wouldn’t make you think twice.. but in the thread, Jimmy John, Sally Sue, and Timmy T-Bone decide to exchange nudes, post their phone numbers, and start a live chat. And then Jimmy John deletes the thread, so it’s as if nothing happened, right? Now, in addition to normal moderation, we’re having to double moderate all of these potential deleted threads, etc. It’s a much more chaotic system, that allows for the potential of so much more to get by. It would absolutely make this site less safe, in my opinion.
Also, to my knowledge, there’s no way to add restrictions like that. One could argue that maybe have it set that you need a certain number of posts to be able to do so, and while that could be a possibility, it would be a bit wonky with how the setup works, and honestly, it’s not just new members who pull that kind of shit.
It is set so that if you own a group, you have limited ‘moderation powers’ there, including the deletion and such, and I think that that’s enough for the purpose of Zocialized forums. As was said, you can always ask a staff member to delete for you as we’ll (reasonably- don’t come asking us to delete 500 posts or something) happily do so for you. You can also always edit the post out.
If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to send me a PM.
You bring up a good point. I think it might be a bit excessive to make it completely public (nor would I know a good way to go about that), but I think if you've been communicating with someone who was then banned, you should be able to approach a senior staff member and ask if you have any reason to be concerned. We could discuss it privately from there. On our end, I can't think of a good way to reach any and all impacted people in cases where there may be reason for concern.
