The rules still apply to the general discussion forum.

I wanted to repost this before the thread it was in got deleted.

Let us not forget, everything Hitler did was legal" Dr Martin Luther King jr.

Just because you can do something, post on a board for example, doesn't make everything you do acceptable.

You can wave the flag and hide behind it all you want to...but when you intentionally disrupt the other members then you risk losing you right to post.

Boo Hoo, my constitutional rights were denied.

If you cause trouble...time and time again...after being asked to be polite...follow a few simple rules of decorum...tone it down...then you forfeit your right to express yourself in that forum.

The members here censor them self's, except for one or two, and they're gone.

I think the rules are simple. Be nice. Follow that one rule and we will all get along great. We all are individuals and we all have our thoughts, ideas and opinions. As long as we are nice I don't see any reason for anyone to be banned or deleted. In fact if we all followed that one rule we wouldn't need moderators.

Just throwing this out there. But this is the general discussion board, you can talk about anything as long as you follow the rules and guidelines? I'm just curious to know the answer to that. Without censorship.


We've talked about all kinds of stuff here, and its been interesting and fun.

My post above mentions some of the things that have happened in the past from one user who is no longer allowed to post.

Its less about content, except for foul language, and more about respecting the rights of others.

We share this board.

It is a dammed if you do dammed if you don't for the moderators. Captain Tony was a cheeky Merry Prankster the alter ego ButterCup was obscene; and, although you could ignore his obscene threads, like I did, and, chime in on the cheeky ones, as I did, I can see the moderators' point of view.

Dammed if you do, dammed if you don't. Mission Impossible.

Oh yeah, just to clarify this a little.

Posting in a forum is a privilege, not a right.

Kind of like driving for example. You can drive anywhere you want, but if you don't follow the rules of the road they revoke your privilege to drive.

i feel bad for the dude.

at first i thought he was just an immature type...

now i feel like there is actually some kind of mental illness and/or repressed issues lingering.

he did have moments of lucidity.
who else is gonna bring you, a broken arrow?

I completely agree. If these interactions are indeed symptoms of a downward spiral I hope someone who actually knows him can do some helpful intervention.

To bad but there seems to be some deep seated issues.

Cry for attention through multiple threads at once.

Obsession with feces,

inability to follow the simplest rules.

Constantly spouting gibberish.

Its like there were some childhood development issues.

So I guess I was wrong about buttercup, I'm such a sucker. So did he start with the offensive stuff later that night?
