    Just wondering...I had a buddy say he tried to post here a few weeks ago and he got a message saying the moderator had to approve it first. It never posted. His username is KMC8910. Can anybody validate any of this for me?

    Users with under 10 posts require approval to post links. And some of those posts get missed and not approved.

    I approved the post.

    right, I honestly don't understand how the GOP is still a viable party when they are so utterly exclusionary.
    it's quite a testament to how many closeted racist/bigots there are in this country.

    I think it's more of a case as they view it as the rich 1% is the popular crowd they dream of being a part of just like they did when they were in high school with all the popular kids that would shit on them, but they didn't care.

    Few people can stand on their own two feet and think for themselves. Everyone else follows the GOP.

    Equating forcing beliefs onto others with that of public prayer.
    It's like I'm watching stupidity dry.

    My last post was blocked in the funny picture topic. My buddy tried to post and though it was approved it never made it here or maybe it was deleted like my last post before anybody saw it.

    Hey...it's not my forum. I can do the same thing at my forum and have. The difference is when I do it, it is because somebody broke the clearly stated rules. I also usually allow the post to stand minus any cuss words in it and I notify the person who made the post that I have edited, or moved, or deleted the post and why. I have also only "not let" one person into my forum based on prior things I heard about that person at all of the many other forums I frequent. I researched when and why that person was banned and decided not to let them join my forum when they tried to based on their reputation proceeding them.

    I have tried to have fair discussions with each of you and have really enjoyed my stay here on these forums over all of these years. I will take my own unspoken advice though and watch to see if the manipulation of my posts continues and those of my friends. If they do, I'll walk away quietly from here still knowing that I gained more than I lost by coming here so long ago.

    Now, I'd like to know if any of you experienced this before here. Listening to all of the religion hating, conservative hating discussions here I was wondering what your views were about free speech and when it needs to be silenced. I'm assuming you think there is a time for that. I'm betting the liberals here have never had their responses blocked or deleted here. Do you know of people trying to post who can't? I hope this response gets past the censors to you folks.

    I've been silenced once before on one other forum in the past but it was only in regards to one post I made there. That topic got locked. That is an interesting sensation: to be blocked from communicating. I am though of the belief that the person who did the work to buy this space, build it up and apply rights to staff members has every single right they want on their forum! Lock people out. Ban them. Whatever. It is your place and your right! God Bless This Whole Thing And Everybody Involved With It" Now say it like Cartman: I love you guys! Oh...and staying on topic I'll say vote conservative. Thank you!

    Quit blabbering on about things you don't even know about. Nobody is willfully trying to prevent your friend from posting here.

    If you go to his profile here and click on "Statistics" and then click on "Find all posts by kmc8910" then you will find his post. It is there and it is the only post he has made.

    Nobody broke the rules and nobody thinks they did. Haarg approved the post when you mentioned it was there. This is all part of an anti-spam system we have installed in the forum. There is no conspiracy. :tinfoil3:

    oh wow, thanks for pointing that out Brizz.
    I'm not sure how I missed it but I completely passed it over. and it's many pages back, I wonder how that happened. had I seen it I would have replied because it's pretty god damn outrageous...

    he quoted me when I said something about how easy it was to vote in the 2008 election once McCain chose Sarah Palin as his running mate. and his response was this:
    if this is Hermskii's good buddy and this is the best he can come up with then it really says a lot about him, Hermskii, and the place they live.
    because that's fucking asinine. the above post is littered with willful ignorance and putrid, old, regurgitated GOP attack-points that are so far outside reality they would be funny if they weren't downright sad.

    Obama is not a Marxist.
    Obama is not a Socialist.
    he doesn't even "lean" that way. not even close.
    his actual, implemented policies are clearly more Centrist Democratic than anything. most of his own supporters don't believe he has been Liberal enough.
    even the true Socialists do not consider Obama a Socialist. there's not a single American Socialist party that supports Obama. not the SPUSA, not the ASP, not the DSA, not the SPA, not any of them.

    the fact that - 4 years later - you would still attempt to call Obama a Marxist/Socialist simply reveals your profound stupidity; either by choice or because (most likely) it runs in the family. it is utterly absurd and anyone who knows even the most rudimentary dick-squat about politics and competing economic systems recognizes this.

    Obama is not a Saul Alinsky "disciple" either.
    what does that even mean? Alinsky has no disciples. he was nobody's prophet or savior. he was a brilliant man who empowered poor people and the lower working class in order that they might have more/fair representation in our nations politics than they had before he came along.

    William F. Buckley (Republican Conservative) has said that Alinsky was "very close to being an organizational genius."
    Adam Brandon (Tea Party Conservative) said that "his tactics, when it comes to grass-roots organizing, are incredibly effective."
    Dick Armey (former House Republican Majority Leader) gives copies of Alinsky's book Rules for Radicals to Tea Party leaders.

    Saul Alinsky was a recipient of the Pacem in Terris Award.
    who else is has earned this award?
    John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King Jr, Sargent Shriver, Dorothy Day, George Kennan, Jim Wallis, and César Chávez... among others.

    oh but that must be some kind of Evil Socialist award right?
    nah, it's a Catholic-based peace award that has been presented to at least as many Conservatives as Liberals for "their achievements in peace and justice, not only in their country but in the world."

    hmm, sounds like Jesus Christ would be proud... if he existed... and if the people who claim to follow him would do so with actions more than just words.

    so you have no problem listing all of Senator McCain's achievements in life while ignoring his follies.
    but when you mention Joe Biden (whose name you seem to have misspelled...) you skip right over everything he has accomplished in turn.

    Senator Biden has substantial foreign policy experience (more than McCain/Palin combined) dating at least as far back as the Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty of 79'. he was one of the senior ranking members of both the Judiciary and Foreign Relations Committees. he has been incredibly successful as a representative for Delaware; testament to the number of times he has been re-elected consecutively.

    also, he never turned his back on his constituents by QUITTING HIS JOB IN THE MIDDLE OF HIS JOB like your precious Sarah Cunt Palin stepping down as Governor before her term was even finished.

    :lol: so Obama "completely wrecked" the economy and US law?
    care to explain?

    maybe Herm will try to field that one for you :rolleyes:

    ...then again, it's clear that you 2 are equally misinformed.
    no wonder you're friends.

    A. I am all for free speech. I can't think of a situation in which I would want to "silence" freedom of speech or the press. as such, your assumption (like most of your rhetoric concerning Liberals) is horribly out of touch with reality.

    B. there are no censors on this forum except for sexual and/or graphic violent content. no one has tried to block you or your friend from posting. "Liberal" posters do not have any more freedom than Conservative posters. you obviously haven't been on this forum long enough to notice that there are plenty of vocal Right-wing types.

    it's actually pretty balanced in that regard.

    and hey, next time you see your friend, remind him what moron he is and how bad he made you look by spouting that baseless nonsense.
    thanks.

    I haven't read this post yet but I will tonight. Until then I'll say I searched for my buddy's post for days and it never appeared as I pointed out even after haarg said it was there. It is there now. Thank you again for that haarg. The other post I made is still nowhere to be found. Tell me, what am I supposed to think is happening here?

    If an apology on my part is in order for mentioning what I thought based on evidence that supported it....well....I'l have to consider that. My post were being removed and my friends looked to be getting removed as well. Neat how nobody else saw his post yet I'm a loon for suggesting such treachery? LOL. I can't wait to read this late tonight when I get home from WORK! Thank you to all who helped to clear this up for me in the event I was mistaken.
