Ok, interesting choice of words, but I don't agree with the "cleaner, calmer" claims for an internet forum. I'd like to take a moment and "dust,
polish, and shine" my posting, please.. Silliness, am sorry.
Here it is:
The Doomsday Policy
Nice start, gets everyone thinking on the correct note.. Reminds me of this topic www.abovetopsecret.com...
The gist of my post here is to ask you why? Obviously you've shown that you have put a lot of time into your entire post, and thats defiantly
Creating a specific location for such postings and conversations is ok, but the out right call that you make for "punishments" is insane, and
Let me ask you this, do you ever go to the grocery store? Do you ever read the tabloid covers as you wait to pay for your groceries? How about like,
Or, ever walk by a book store and get slammed with a news paper stand just before you get to the book store? I mean you are going to buy a book, not a
news paper.. so why is this news paper being placed in front of you?
By your logic above, anything "You" don't agree with in regards to verbiage and timeliness, needs to be cast aside and "cleaned up, made calmer,
banned, deleted, moved"... I forget the rest. I smell a type of censorship in the making..
My understanding is that everyone has something to tell, truth, lies, stories... blah blah blah, as the Reader
it is Your
to filter the incoming info.. Like Dates, or Times... Use your "filters" to read the message openly instead of focusing on one
aspect. Many times the message can be good, but with the wrong time frames, does that mean everything else should be cast aside? No...
Same thing here.. only, I don't want "Your" filtered view.. I have my own filters thank you. Please allow me to access every view point and see
it for what it is.. Am curious though about these other people who support your "filtered" view being placed upon us. It seems odd..
Although, I do ask.. Are you scared of reading all possibilities? or scared of your own fears over what might happen? Or is it just "control
tendencies" pushing this?
Or did someone once force you to read something you didn't want to? Am confused, please help.
fyi, Filters = Your Brain.
