    Default To my friends from the "other" board

    I have chosen to no longer participate in the "other" board I would explain it over there, but I would be banned.

    I was banned for 1 day for calling out a moderator, I posted a thread titled "Why do the Vanderpols Hate Jesus" Vwaggs, a mod over there seemed to think that I was god bashing, and he locked my thread. I sent him this PM:

    Simply interjecting your personal feelings really undermines you position as moderator, censorship is an unruly beast, and when abused it can only serve to promote disinformation and fascist control over media.

    You should really reconsider your decision I realize these forums are privately owned, but as long as they are advertised as a free exchange of information, censorship should only be applied in the most extreme of circumstances, where legal implications could jeopardize the existence of this type of communication. I believe that these forums represent a future of media, that is very targeted, and very effective. Right now we are literally laying the groundwork for a future in communications, do you really want to jeopardize it's integrity?

    I doubt a just god would want it that way.

    sincerely,

    They decided to unlock the thread, but banned me(temporary) and gave me some kind of infraction -10 points because, I posted the foreposted PM in the Oak Harbor Forum, for everyone to read.

    That's the story,
    I wish them no harm, I just want to be able to be honest and post the truth, I want to be able to challenge people and let the readers decide.

    To those that have Pm'd me
    thank you very much for your concern.

    Sounds rather familiar. I got banned for a few days for calling out the owner when he turned a thread, on the Yellow forum, into his political views. I wonder if referring to him as the "Grand Wizard" had anything to do with it? Got a nasty e-mail from him too plus a couple of others. Funny how the word filter didn't filter out his words. Haven't been back since.

    Hey, can we start an "otherboard" bashing thread?

    We have more people that bolted from that site, and the idiot little tin-horn dictator that runs it. I personally got banned for life at least twice from there. If you hear from Jeff, give him the finger for me.

    Default Re: To my friends from the "other" board

    I still visit on occasion, but they have been few and far between.. I really don't feel right knocking someone else's forum just I would hope they were not knockin' this one. "Do unto others as you would hope they do unto you" is kinda the way I see it and I try to live it the best I can (when possible although that is not always the case),, it may not be the best way but I do get a good nite's sleep more often than not..

    We're happy to have each and every one of you here. We're more than familiar with what happened there and I just want you to know it won't happen here.

    RedRollingRoadblock, There's no need to bash. The amount of members seeing what's happening there and deciding to join us is satisfaction enough.

    snortin nortin, they have already made plenty of attempts to knock us there but we're not gonna lower ourselves to that level. It's just not worth it.

    Oh, I don't want to bash him, exactly...just poke him with a sharp stick once in a while! Every so often I sign up under a different name, and ridicule his extreme far right positions. Now he's trying to get people as paid members. Who'd pay to be a part of that freak-fest? The best revenge I could hope for is for either Obama to be reelected, or another Democrat wins.
