You're comparing apples and oranges. That's a topic, this is a product. I think you've been told if there is an opposing product on this
particular issue, in which they (the 3 Amigos) feel it fits into the genre of the board and also helps to fund this community - they'll put it up.
I understand that sales of a DVD can spur a lot of revenue, but are the best interests of the ATS community as a whole in perspective here?
I'm sure you aren't the person to decide the best interest of the community. That I'm certain of. Aren't you the dude that when you were a
moderator told me to shut up posting because my posts were too Anti-Bush? You sent me a whole series of u2us in which you jumped my # and told me to
stop posting because I called him an idiot and you were getting sick of my anti-Bush comments.
Yeah - why don't you pick what's best for the community.
Here's a thought. Maybe what's best for the community is what keeps this community together without requiring cash out-lays of the members.
There's a thought.
Would you feel better if they ran a few GOP ads? Or maybe you'd feel better if your good buddy came back and stomped the crap out of anybody that
hinted at having an unbiased opinion on the Israeli/Palestinian issue...maybe that's what you think would be best for this community.
Honestly, this is the first time that I have doubted the leadership of the Three Amigos, and that's why I wanted to post this here, instead of
submitting a complaint. I wanted to have this issue open for discussion for all who support, oppose, and are neutral on this. Also, this venue allows
for the staff to interact directly with the board as a whole, versus on just a person-to-person manner.
But it's not the first time your judgment has been doubted. And I call BS on why you posted it here instead of the complaint forum. You keep
repeating this drivel of your doubts about the 3 Amigos' judgment, but the majority of your posts so far have centered on the fact that this product
being sold (just like date ads and Phoenix online university) is is contradiction to YOUR position. If it was "buy your own Bush chia-pet" ad, we
wouldn't even know you were still a member.
I feel exactly the same way about political movies, as well.
And this is where you really show your ignorance. Being anti-Vietnam war versus pro-Vietnam war is not a political stance. Being anti-Iraq war
versus pro-Iraq war is not a political stance. Being for a "policy" or against a "policy" is not a political stance. It is a stance on a policy
- not politics. You want to paint every one who disagrees with you as a "liberal" or maybe "anti-American???" Bullcrap. No, not just bullcrap -
stuff it! You are wrong, in too many ways to enumerate.
And now live with this post - it's my opinion. You had yours, now I have mine.
EDIT: Said "emails" meant "u2us"...corrected.
