    Recently, an Obama thread was locked because Asguard said that all 'attacks' on Obama be lumped in as posts with Sandy's 'I hate Obama thread'. I like Obama better than the other candidates, but not more than free speech. We don't need to move into an area of cordoned-off 'protest zones' like under the Bush. Unless this policy is consistent across the board, (ie, a single thread each for attacks against all candidates or issues) it smacks of censorship and I strongly oppose it. Plus, to lump what may be viable criticisms under a thread title of 'I hate...' is strongly pejorative and unfairly discrediting - not to mention severely lowers the level of discourse.

    Lord, you haven't been here in a while. Sandy has been spamming the forum with her I hate Obama threads. In each and everyone of them she repeated the same talking points. The forum was becoming to cluttered with her redundant threads. The mod was just doing his job..correctly

    I can see the merit in all attacks of one type (criticism about one issue) being relegated to one thread, but not criticism or notes of different topics. Besides, the locked thread in question wasn't even begun by Sandy.

    Assguard will close a thread if he disagrees with it strongly enough. He will delete your posts if he disagrees with them enough. He closed my "Chinese Cr@p" thread because I tried to keep it on topic.

    He allows people to troll my threads and then closes them. He participates in personal attacks against me.

    I don't hate Obama. I despise what he stands for. He is a deceptive abomination.

    What on earth is a deceptive abomination? Is it an abomination which is not really an abomination but a blessing in disguise ?

    Deceptive is dishonest, deceiving...
    Abomination is just a horrendous, freak show, loathsome, disgusting, vile POS.

    No. I don't hate him. I hate/despise his behavior.

    What would you say to Obama if given a one-on-one meeting with him?

    But you said he is a deceptive abomination, not his behaviour is deceptive and an abomination..

    "God help you."

    This thread is about censorship. If you want to discuss Obama we should take it to PM or another thread, huh?

    I mean both. I'm not usually into name-calling a person I don't like but he deserves it. He is vile.

    Mod Note: Sorry, if you want to complain about Asguard, do so through PM or in the "Site Feedback" forum.

    Thread moved to "Site Feedback" forum.

    Hillyer:

    Never mind the political content of your thread. You again posted just a link, with no commentary, no question - in short, no point of discussion.

    For that reason, it was fine to close it.

    James. R...everything matters in this world. "Whatever" is wrong way to address issues we all hold so dearly to our hearts...
