Resignation

My Fellow Members,

With regrets, I am offering my resignation from this site. Regardless of which presidential candidate wins, I have a major problem with my thread about the candidates being abused. First, a Moderator locked it. Then, an Admin moved it to the Black Hole. Whatever happened to free speech? Not to worry, though, Obama will kiss our enemies.

This message was approved by RB.

Re: Resignation

hmmm, well it's too bad we have to lose an OG over it. I'm sure it was because of the hostile tone that inevitably cropped up (as political "discussion" often denigrates into...), although i didn't see that overflow into other threads.
as i've often espoused, fiery discussion is much more productive and entertaining than mumbling contradiction.

Re: Resignation

rick-roll em!

whilst entertaining and to some degree enlightening (although I still consider myself mr. knowitall) we probably weren't making a dent in the overall political consciousness anyways. Then again, I've always sensed that many more people read these threads and never post, so you never know...:P

anyways, i don't think it's enough of a knicker twister to quit the site. stick around and annoy them sumore.

Re: Resignation

I'm just curious, if you've resigned why are you still locking threads?

Re: Resignation

I don't really care. I was about to post in the other thread that I felt it was useful because some people can't access the black hole.

I just find it a little odd that you go around decrying the suppression of free speech while locking a thread you and only you deem "pointless".

Re: Resignation

there is no freedom of speech anywhere when you have whiny cry babies that need to get their way. Its nothing but down hill.
