    More censorship BS?

    Jesus... It's the "Censorship Olympics" around here lately and everyone wants to hand this place the gold medal.

    I'd usually fly off the handle right about now, but I'll *try* and play this one cool. ....

    Brett lets all kinds of views fly here on the links. Period.

    The retarded notion that he's censoring anyone, is just that - RETARDED.

    hitch, I've seen your stuff at the army and you're a funny guy. You make me laugh.

    But this thread is a joke that ISN'T funny.

    You're wrong.

    I don't even know why you posted this, here. Anyone who doesn't like this place can GLADLY leave. No one's keeping anyone hostage.

    You and Brett had a disagreement at the army. You should have kept it there.

    Having said that, the best point I can make that speaks to the FACT that Brett is open-minded and fair as hell, is this :

    Even after having read this thread, you won't be banned by him, and your posts and threads won't be deleted by him.

    He's had much worse posted about him than this and he's left it up.

    There was a thread a while back entitled, "Fuck Brett" and he didn't even close it.

    To give you a little perspective, if the thread had been called, "Fuck Down In Flames" I would not only have closed it, but I would have hopped on a plane, and headed to the poster's residence...

    (But that's just me. )

    You're in the wrong. I don't quite know how to explain just how nutty your argument is.

    I don't even know if I should have written this much, in the defense of someone who doesn't need defending...

    Whatever... This is not a democracy. No one's freedom of speech is being abused. This is the internet. Some websites have guidelines and this is one of them. The enforcement of the guidelines is handled by the Moderators, etc, etc., etc... You get the idea...

    And, by the way, your stance towards POJO's supposed censorship was equally as off-base. He did what he felt he needed to do at the army, and more power to him.

    Again, all that needs to be said is this : If you don't like how this place is run, you're always free to never come back.

    The choice is always your own.

    Now, how censored is that?

    Down in Flames:

    #1, thanks for responding. I appreciate everything you had to say.

    #2, I hope that brett is what you say he is. It's alot like the interview I read with Ed about "Live without a net" , he said basically, he went back and overdubbed alot of the guitar work. He said that sammy "left everything as it was". That's why I love Sam. And Dave. No Apologies.

    #3. You read 2 posts of 80. You don't know why it was pulled or what all the other people posted in between. Why post at all? If Pojo had a problem with me, just take MY posts out. Unfair to anyone who takes time to read or post.

    I think Brett is a cool guy. His site is not stupid, or is yours. I just want to know I am not wasting my time posting. It's a big FUCK YOU to all that posted on the topic. Believe me, I have all 3 pages saved, it was not worth scrapping.

    Thanks again dude for your insight...

    hitch, since you seem genuine in the belief that you were wronged in the thread you're speaking of, could you explain how Brett is at fault in any way?

    Because that's where I get lost. Maybe you disagreed with his points within the thread, but to jump to the conclusion that he advocates censorship is just not true.

    Threads get closed and deleted through the best judgment of the Moderators. I know that I haven't read the pages you mentioned, but just from experience I'd be willing to guess that something told POJO to close the thread.

    It was a judgment call.

    I don't know what the specific beef you have with Brett (or POJO, for that matter) is, but neither one is a fan of censorship.

    If they close threads, there's always a legitimate reason as to why they do so.

    Well, I'll close this. After all, I'm the resident tyrant so it seems of late

    Seriously though -
    Whatever happened at the Army, belongs at the army. Simple as that From what I can see the major beef was pojo's removing of a subject - at the army. It's something you are gonna have to take up with Pojo and the gang - over there.

    If you have a problem with the way THIS site is run, post something in feedback forum.

    Hitch maybe you need a little help understanding this.

    I HAVE NO AFFILIATION WITH THE DLR ARMY. I just post there like everyone else. How the Sarge, POJO, BrownSound1, Hain, WARF choose to run their site is their business.

    You obviously are under the impression that I deleted your silly thread over there, which is preposterous, I have no control over that site at all. How the hell have I censored you?? And where? I think you are an ignorant piece of trash, but that's beside the point and has nothing to do with censorship. I would have left your moronic posts up at the Army if I had any say, and force you to look at your idiotic statements forever.

    You're a very sad and strange guy Hitch, I honestly feel bad for you and hope that taking your anger out here keeps you from terrorizing the real world. Please keep DLR Army discussions where they are, ON THE DLR ARMY. Thank you.
