Discussion Starter #1
Yesterday somebody posted a thread titled something like "I must be a Socialist- Gas Thread." It was still here as of this morning, and was still a civil discussion. It's gone now. I looked in the OTE and the Hotbox, thinking the Mods might have moved it, but it's not there either.

Did the thread get out of hand and get pulled? Like I said, the last time I looked it was still civil and educational, but I do know that threads like that can go south quickly.

SORRY...

I pulled it because of the (quite frequent) hostile PM's I was starting to receive. I have pulled several threads after a few days, because various wacko's on this forum get so personally agitated. It's just easier for me to pull the damn thing vs. getting all wound up.

In this case, it wasn't even meant to be a serious thread...

I thought my line about giving "Hugo" my business down the street would be humerous. :shrug: Guess not.

Seems people no longer have a sense of humor aboout anything. Everything must be a personal attack, racism, etc. and that seems to justify going from a friendly conversation to DefCon 3 in 2 nanoseconds

I do a lot of reading and not much posting because I see a lot of people getting jumped on after some pretty mild statements. That's unfortunate. Looks like Rodney King wasn't so far off after all...

I found the hard way about a nut case on this board when he started sending threatening letters to my home even though I list my address no where on the net.

This person as threatened to ride out from Texas and do harm to my family and I. Luckily this person was convinced to stay home.

Oh my goodness, that is hard to understand.

No matter who gives an opinion on anything political here, what possible real life difference could it make?

Sorry for the problems you had.

It's funny how we all espouse freedom until someone's opinion doesn't square with ours -- then the threats start.

I would think it would be easier to pull their membership to the board. Doesn't the Terms of Service indicate that the 'humorless unintelligent umbrageous wacko' are not allowed? The least you could do is change their user status as reported in their postings to 'Wacko' as a matter of policy. If they do not post ever, then I am sorry, they are not an 'active' member and their influence should be reflected.

What you really need to do is STOP GIVING WACKOs any power, once they taste it, they abuse it. You opened the door Gary, the noise will only increase ...

There has been times on this board that things offends me, I either quit reading the thread, or personally block specific users; not once have I sent an email to the sysop(s) in complaint. Why should these simple rules and actions be any different for folks that are emotionally stunted?

(shshshsh, while you are at it, could you remove the members that don't know how to spell?)

It's sad that you had to do that, but after reading some on the posts on your thread, I'm not suprised that you were getting nasty pm's from some members on this board. There are clearly some wacko's on this board.

I wish this person would threaten me. I have a few friends that will be more than happy to speak Texan with him, namely Smith, Wesson and Baretta !!!!

Didn't Obama say he was gonna fix that?

Maybe we'll get that after we all get our Unicorns?

Having been on this forum for several years, I can say I have noticed that the members seem to be much more on edge over the past 2 & 1/2 years. I know I am.

Thought you might have deleted it because of the request you put in there that some person s*** your d*** because you didn't like his gas prices...was pretty crude even for a Gold Wing board.
