    1) Why would the mods delete a topic as opposed to closing it?

    2) Why would a topic be closed to begin with?

    3) Why would a topic be deleted?

    4) What about "Freedom of Speech"?

    5) What about the amendments?

    What are you babbling about now? No one responded to one of your stupid Sammy hate threads, which is all you ever post here? Cry me a river dude. Nobody has deleted your freaking thread, we've got better things to do.

    There's a variety of reasons. People start fighting, and the topic itself becomes just a flame fest. Sometime I close things I think are stupid. Remember your cheese picture? That was fucking dumb, so I closed it.

    3) Why would a topic be deleted?
    Didn't you just ask a variation on this?

    4) What about "Freedom of Speech"?
    You ignorant bitch. You're not guaranteed any freedom of speech here. Ask the assholes who've been banned about it.

    5) What about the amendments?
    The amendments to what, dumbass?

    SW...I explained why I closed your poll about Sammy's weight. No one responded to it positively and it didn't contribute anything substantial to the ongoing debates here. You started that poll to dog Sammy and piss people off...no other reason.

    Pics of scat, farm animals getting it on with humans, Gary... The usual suspects. Really, you know why there's an option to delete threads. Acting like you don't know is disingenuous.

    2) Why would a topic be closed to begin with?
    How are these for examples?

    Dude, you like to stir shit. That's your act. Fine. But don't whine when your shit-stirring topics are closed. Cause and effect; simple as that.

    We get that you don't like Sam. And, increasingly, neither do I. But every post you make doesn't have to revolve around beating the hell out of him and his fans. It's as annoying as it is obsessive.

    3) Why would a topic be deleted?
    See the answer to question #1.

    4) What about "Freedom of Speech"?

    5) What about the amendments?
    LOL! What about violins? [img]graemlins/cry.gif[/img]

    I made a similarly embarrassing mistake back when I first showed up VHLinks. I posted in some thread, said something like "that's how we do things here in America."

    It was Goo who responded, pointing out to me that this is the WORLD WIDE WEB.

    Your questioning "freedom of speech" and "amendments" is nonsensical. Like Brew Crew mentioned, you agreed to be moderated when you registered here. It's part of the gig. If people could post anything they wanted, there'd be no need for moderators. The board would be a total, useless mess.

    It's ridiculous that you'd even try to spin this into some "equal rights" issue. You haven't been abused. Implying that you have been is lame.

    There are exceptions, but it's been my experience that for the most part, the guys that cause problems are always the ones to whine about "rights" and "freedom of speech," as if they've been stripped of the freedom to whine about however they've supposedly been wronged.

    Think about it - If "rights" were commonly abused, do you think this thread would still be opened? If not (*gasp!*) deleted? LOL.

    Check out this next thread from about the 16th post onward; it should give you a greater perspective...

    http://www.vhforums.com/vhlforum/ult...;f=10;t=001123

    If after that thread you still don't get it, it must be because you choose not to.

    Sammy, MANY PEOPLE have had topics closed you doorknob, so get over it already! We close topics here if there is a need to. You have no proof OF ANY topics deleted, so until you can prove to me beyond a shadow of a doubt that one is missing, I suggest you keep quiet on this, and stop with the accusatory bullshit. I've just about had enough of you anyway.

    You have never contributed one positive thing to this board, you are a complete arrogant ass, and I am not tolerating you anymore.

    By the way, the US Bill of Rights are not relevant on this site, this is not the US, this is the internet. The laws of this site are subject to what the site owner wants them to be, and until you start paying the bills Sam, you have no say in what the rules are. Your ability to post here is a privilege not a right. We give people the freedom to express themselves, and if you don't believe that, then get lost already. There are limits to everything.

    When you start asking questions that aren't rude and obnoxious, you will get REAL answers from me.

    My question in this thread was rude and obnoxious?

    Can't prove a thread is deleted if it's not there anymore!

    This topic is closed (pardon the pun [img]tongue.gif[/img] ) as far as I'm concerned.

    There was no need to call me names.

    If you're trying to get a straight and honest answer from anyone, don't resort to tell them to "open their fuckin' eyes". People don't take too kindly to that.

    You've obviously felt like MikeL had no right in answering you in the way he did. You know why you come here and post the things you do. Like Brett said, it's just to start shit.

    Here's some words of wisdom from someone you think is a bit paunchy...

    "You can't feel love (ie: RESPECT) if you take it. You can only feel love (ie: RESPECT) when you give it."

    How 'bout that? Ol' Sammy Hagar just might be onto something there.

    You want people to take you seriously and answer you with a little respect? Do the same toward them and possibly do it first. Act like an adult and earn their respect. Show us how big of a man you can be instead of resorting to 5th grade tactics and poking fun of someone's weight.

    REAL mature there, Sam.

    Nice cop-out answer bud. Let me help you out then. What post of yours was deleted? What forum was it in? What was it about? When did you post it?

    This topic is closed (pardon the pun [img]tongue.gif[/img] ) as far as I'm concerned.
    Closed until the next time you get your panties in a bind because nobody takes part in your 24-hour Sam bash fest.

    There was no need to call me names.
    Yeah there was, and until your attitude changes, there still is.

    I'll make you happy and not post here for awhile.
