    Naive? Henh, well, now, I haven''t ever been accused of being that. Reactionary, maybe, but I take my right as a citizen of this nation seriously - very seriously.

    The way I see it, the government is doing enough to snuff out "other" points of views - therefore, it makes no sense at all that "we", here, should be so eager to do the same.

    Don't worry. The gummint will get around to us.

      Sadly, work takes precedence, so... CT section stays.
      Sam said I was a challenge.

        We'll be okay when the biggest controversy we are hiding in the basement is whether to like the pink, or the blue, My Little Pony.

          Duster, Internet forums are private property. The people with the keys to the server can restrict your "rights" as much as they want, regardless of what it says in the 1st Amendment. That's not a threat, just a reminder that politicizing the discussion won't accomplish anything.

            Whoa, the ground just opened up in Site and Forum Suggestions and I almost fell into deep cyberspace. Just managed to catch an edge and pull myself up on the other side of the crack, and now I'm here in CT: should it stay or should it go?

              I am against wearing Rose Colored Glasses on this forum!

              I agree, but not to leave out the many that are between the A's and S's.

              Really... I would rather these people log in and see that we are REAL people with real opinions on matters that extend beyond our sport than to think that we do not look like any other cross-section of our culture.
              Gudt point hombre!
              Also, if any of these, excuse me, "power trippers" keep on reading this stuff, they would see that there are times when these issues are resolved and we sometimes end up on a positive note. (sometimes )
              If they only saw peaches and cream they prolly wouldn't believe us and then we'd be really be up shit creek without a paddle.
              I would be willing to bet that there are some good relationships that have grown as a result of this section of the forum.

                btw- I didn't name this thread or put it here.
                That was done by some one else.
                When moving someone's thread and renaming it, I'd suggest the moderator make an initial post saying they have done so and why.
                It sure feels like someone who isn't even a moderator sure has power to pull strings.
                (That's my opinion. But I'm already anticipating a scathing, though veiled, attack in response.)

                  No, I did. It was veering far off of "Site & Forum Suggestions." And the last couple of postings in that thread will also probably be moved soon.

                    I jumped the gun. That certainly seemed like a reasonable response.
                    Thank you.

                      By the way, as far as I know there's no way to "insert" a new first post in a moved thread. If there was, we'd do it. As it is, the person who created the first posting (in the collection of posts that got moved) ends up as the "author" of the new thread.

                      I suppose we could edit the first post with a little note saying "moved from here" and include a link back to the original thread... we may have even done that once or twice.

                        If you don't know how to do it, then it probably can't be done.
                        That note idea could alleviate some confusion at times.
                        The way you named it may have made it appear I was stirring up a new round of trouble on my own, not entering a conversation in progress.
                        All part of my growth effort to be less mean-spirited, though no less annoying.
