Thanks for your comments, i guess i just dont have enough time to provide the counter point to every post i read. Of course the counter points are
very valuable, and they do reassue one that not everyone is anti-whatever, it just seems the general tone of the site needs a bit more moderation. For
example, people often forget to post their sources, or to even wink in their direction. This is a fantastic site, and i agree with freedom of speech
completely. However, this is not a sounding board for peoples opinions, it is a site designed for discussion on the paranormal. Too many, and
regretfully i mean a majority of posts, are politically motivated these day, and it is sad, because this was a great site. Im not dissing the mods, or
even the posters, but to see how a site can offer the same subject matter, but without the political bias of each poster being displayed why not take
a look at forteantimes.com which im sure a lot of you are familiar with. It does not have to be this way. Freedom of speech is great, and i will die
for anybody's right to say what they want, but maybe some self sensorship may make this site a lot better. A considered argument, regardless of who
it is rallied against, is a great thing. It is what this site used to be about. But, as i said in my previous post, the 'Obabma is gay/Islam is a
bloody religion' posts are just rants. Can we not, as a community, excercies a bit of intellectualism?
I do love this site, but please, when you are posting, dont just rant. If we are really 'investigating' then consider what you are trying to say.
For me, and the thousands of reader who have an element of curiosity (and dare i say intelligence) these one sided post are becoming the norm, and
very boring. Frankly they are putting me off. And OK, I know i can just leave, but I thought i would just voice what i thought before i did. I know i
am not alone...
