phil_of_ed created  
phil_of_ed it is.  I wrote up a blurb about philosophy of education and included educational psychology and pedagogy, so check it out and suggest any changes before things start rolling ...

I would like to ask that in the future, that you not join a community in order to argue that it's not necessary and to promote an alternative community of yours instead. It just seems to me that it violates basic rules of decorum...

Dude, "decorum"?? get laid or something; I joined crit_ped because I am interested in some of it's philosophical origins but I didn't join it to trample on your community. If you actually took time check the posting dates, I joined crit_ped first, talked to some people about education in general, and created phil_of_ed afterwards. So the timeline makes it obvious that I saw a broader community base. You somehow think I just flew in to "steal" members, which is just weird, seeing how we've been here for months in relative silence.

So ban me if you want. That'd be rather typical of your moderation style -- and some queer and feminist seminars.

I apologize if I sounded rude. A lot of communities require that you ask permission from the moderators before promoting communities. And I guess I took your effort to expand the scope to be an attack on myself, which was not true.

I have not banned anyone from this community - including a member who joined specifically to attack the community and the values for which it stands. I deleted one or two of his comments that I felt were out of line -- read Stanley Fish's "There's No Such Thing as Free Speech and it's a good thing too" -- if you want to have a sense about why I don't think it's a violation of "free speech" and progressive values to occasionally restrict some forms of speech that's getting out of hand.

Hi there,

Given the low level of activity in phil_of_ed, I wanted to invite you to continue to participate in this community as well.
