You can only agree, even if you don't agree? If that's the case, why have an OT section?

Is this board going the way of a companion board where the Mods openly attack members?

I agree... Supporting evidence is required as well as a suitable backstory before we can engage in productive discourse.

Or failing that... a simple explanation. :shrug:

Ah, I think he's talking about the Oliver North thread that was first closed and then posts deleted (including his, I'm guessing).

Glad I missed that one then...


and I think this falls into the realm of questioning moderation and talking about politics, both of which aren't allowed here. So this thread is utterly useless.

Indeed. I'm sure we all agreed to forum policies when we signed up...

I think the forum policies pretty much dictate that we don't talk about [politicians]. No matter how much it pains us to keep quiet.

Mod Edit: Fixed the political commentary... (tom)

Edited by Tom Robertson, 17 March 2010 - 08:53 PM.
redacted political commentary (instead of deleting the whole post.)

Exactly, making a positive post about a high profile political and historical figure would be considered "politics" It goes both ways.

I disagree. The post was about an experience the poster's son had about the man. It made no references to his (Mr. North's) personal or professional character.

Based on the thread you are refuring to I am allowed to attach a photo of my child greeting a person convicted of heinous felonies while working for a politician, but nobody is allowed to disagree with this relationship? Doesn't sound fair because all people are supposed to follow all the laws. That statement isn't political, racial, sexual etc.

If you are looking for a no-holds-barred forum to express your opinions, May I suggest 4chan.org ? Be prepared though, I express fair warning and emphasize the "no-holds-barred" aspect.

C'mon guys. Let us stick to the topic at hand. Even threads in the OT have to remain somewhat on their topic.

Also, I have edited a few posts trying to sneak in political commentary while discussion political commentary. I almost deleted them entirely (I should have, actually), yet I felt with a bit of editing I could leave the salient parts. Don't complain in public--send a moderator a note if you disagree.
