    Default Seen. Why closed?

    Seenbad. With all respect, the thread about the uni guy was closed because you said there was nowhere to go with it.

    I respectfully disagree.

    Can you give us your reasons for this because I honestly thought a debate about the value of dissenting voices could have been interesting to read and I was looking forward to joining in the debate.

    Surely it wasn't because it had the potential to become a flame fest?

    Dave vs Sam?

    With respect. (Don't know how else to get the point across)

    Fuck, I've seen threads where people have said nuke the whole middle east because they hate, and I've joined in, against my better judgement, even though I know the person who said this has no brain and argument has no merit with a shellfish.

    They were not closed.

    yet.................

    Voicing an opinion is a fundamental right in a democracy. (or used to be)
    And yes, I know this is just a little message board but I like it here.....

    Just seems a little strange.

    Maybe opinions that do not fit....etc

    Whatever. I just had a question.

    voivod summed it up nicely in two words, but I'll elaborate.

    I've been around a while man, I know when something has jumped the shark from discerning, all aspects, all sides discussion to shit throwing. When the name calling and telling others that their mother was choking on their dick, I'd say the plot is pretty much lost. You can try to get it back from there, but rarely does it happen.

    Look past the mod and ask the posters why they have to go there. Tell Zorba and FORD how much you would have liked to discuss that topic further and that you don't appreciate that bullshit because you come bringing actual discussion, not yo-momma crap.

    It is a shame that the thread needed to be closed, as I found it to be an intriguing subject.

    Yet I'd point out that we did try a discussion on this subject a couple of years ago (we lost it in the first major hack), yet it too degenerated into mindlessness whilst involving a fellow named "outstrung" or something of the like.

    The net result was more heat than light. There are some very clever and astute minds around here. Sadly the personal feelings held by some against others tend to derail things at times, and instead of a coffee klatch one get's a steel cage match.

    I beg to differ. Clearly, Zorba started the shitfest. Did I throw it right back in his face? Damn right I did. Which ain't a surprise to anyone who's been at this board for any length of time.

    However, I suspect other motivations here. It's funny how the thread was NOT closed immediately after the so called "shitfest", but only after I posted the testimony of a German survivior of the Third Reich who pointed out the very real parallels between the Chimpministration and Hitler. To me, it seems that someone might have been more uncomfortable with that reality being posted than they were with the "shitfest" of several hours before.

    Of course there is a slight chance I could be wrong. In which case someone would merely delete the "shitfest" posts and restore the rest of the thread for discussion.

    I doubt that someone was afraid of the very real comparisons of the Weimar Republic and America in 2001-present being pointed out or discussed, as the notion has been around for years.

    I honestly believe it was closed for the reasons seen stated. I highly doubt he has a subversive agenda towards certain posters, nor do I believe he has his lips wrapped around our President's pecker.

    And with that particular mental image, I'll stop.

    Puh-lease. I honestly didn't even read it. I got as far as you telling zorba his mom was chocking on your dick and had seen enough. I really don't read the garbage you link or post. I really don't need to after 6 years of reading. As for timing, dude, I have a lot of posts, but I really don't live on here. When I am on here, I'm doing very important shit, like trying to manage the fantasy NBA league. I check in on Non once in a while, but not often enough to nail up coffins the moment subjects turn.

    Your paranoia and suspicions leak over in to your real life I guess.

    Of course there is a slight chance I could be wrong. In which case someone would merely delete the "shitfest" posts and restore the rest of the thread for discussion.
    Fuck that. If you want to talk about all that shit, go for it. If you want to keep the discussion active, it's up to you. You having the inability to keep it civil shouldn't translate in to me having do "clean up" work in the threads you venture in to. I'll close that shit down every time rather than do all that. So I'm lazy and you're an asshole. Where does that leave us? Well, this lazy mod puts it back on to you. I'm just going to lock it up every single time. *Click* Done. End of problem as far as I'm concerned. If you want to discuss it, fine. Discuss it. If you fly off the handle in to FORD land, people shouldn't address that with me, they should address it with you. I'm just going to click.

    I don't think that is the case. If it were, I would think he would have deleted the post and then closed the thread.

    Oh there has been deletions, but our policy basically is not to. I think common sense prevails here. Spam= outta here. There was a bunch of complete shit once with FabShadow *shivers* that crudied up the pic thread = outta here. There was also an anal explosion from a quaint japanese gal where I honestly believe there was some sort of motoized pump spraying something that resembled the squirts from her anal oriface. ....we kept that one. Kidding.

    Threads getting runined to bickering, I'll just lock it.
