It's political in the same way West Wing is political, for entertainment purposes only.
But hey whatever makes you feel empowered.
And oh yeah, this is probably about the 3rd time I've EVER stepped into this forum on p.com so Yeah I SHOULD be quite familiar with the rules.
Fairly obvious that this was ONLY moved for the "defeat Obama" thing, can't have that on the cafe, but had I said defeat Romney.. yeah it would have stayed.
But the fact is there's more political discussion in folks signatures than in my entire first post, but whatever. No wonder this site is dying.
Defeat Romney would have not stayed in the Cafe. I apologize if I confused you with someone else that frequently visits the political forum.
We are not on a power trip, we have reasons for our rules, most people understand that. If someone starts a discussion about a political statement in a signature it will be moved here.
We are quite aware of the gibberish about our liberalism, as it pertains to moderation. I often read columns and articles from all over and read the comment sections when they have them.
What is said on here is rather mild compared to what you read on other sites. You don't see them deleting comments of those with differing political views because it makes people uncomfortable. I am sure that they do make certain things invisible when it comes to over the top personal attacks that are off topic.
(your remarks about the moderation were a personal attack on a moderator by the way)
I would not be surprised if they didn't get the same backlash of poor me you removed my comments because I am a democrat, liberal, conservative.
Quite honestly I don't mind being criticized for being inline with more popular mainstream media. I think it is just because people feel they have access to us that they dish up the criticism and try to force us to be what they want us to be.
It's really not much of a discussion after 10 or so people say ditto.
This is not a message board were freedom of speech applies only to those that agree or all act the same way. We only ask that the discussion go on in appropriate forums and quite honestly that is not cause for you or anyone else to get so upset.
