Why even make a thread... why not either tell us what it is.... I mean if you;re screwed anyway?
Wait until it's resolved and then give us a full report when you're back.... if it's not so serious?
This just seems like game playing and drama making for the sake of it.
If you're sick or something then this isn't the best way to tell people...
Yea me too... but not that way... rather like my post above getting declared "bad manners" without actually using any prohibited words or saying
anything offensive. Seems innuendo is enough to get penalized these dayz... unless you own the site or the forum or the content of the
conversations... then you can abuse anyone anyway you please.
While I don't agree with the mods, etc, who play "fast and loose" with the rules, there was message enough in the OP for those who, like the bible
says, "have ears to listen and eyes to hear".
Thanks - though the mods, etc aren't to blame... sure they're conceivably "complicit" - and they've even had lawyers add to the rules to CYA.
However, without them and their efforts there wouldn't even be this conversation
. And even better - they're willing to discuss their
interpretations and why they felt all those rules were needed (mostly distribution, advertizing, liability, and laws).
But the end result on the dialog and sharing of the truth is truly stifling... just like the OP - point to a "waffen ss march" to imply what was
meant. As happened in my post - the time is fast approaching when even IMPLYING things will become prohibited... another law, another rule, its... an
INCREMENTAL FASCISM. And like the quote from Evie in V for Vendetta:
"Artists use lies to illuminate the truth, politicians use lies to cover it up."
The artists were sent to the death camps even before the Jews... before that their works got defaced, destroyed, and removed from public view.
[if its not clear, my post is about the state of the USA, and not against ATS or its mods ... where unexpected actions are more 'symptomatic' of the
