You should use the word "screw" instead of f-bombs... Mark probably doesn't care about your sorry excuse for any political posts, period. :D So, why bother? I just got another one removed tonight, although I was pointing out the general stupidity of the political agenda shooting itself in the foot. Oh well...

BTW, one of my posts that explained my whole issue got deleted by the prudes before I could even refresh this topic. Wow, they are quick, the Prudes! :D Arb, I think it was a reply to your post that got me riled up. Anyway, its a slow nite with nothing moving much so what do you do!

This was the post that got deleted. Thx to advice from arb, pls translate the word *screw* to your personal favorite f-bomb. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Let me just say that I do not take myself or my beliefs very seriously because I know they will change with time. So no personal affront taken. The issue here is that there was posts made that were in no obvious discord with common sense. I had posted a topic from onion.com about bernanke which had the work *screw* in a humorous piece and the post got deleted. The piece had far more relevance to this forum than say sophia loren but got deleted. If you cannot differentiate between the word *screw* used in anger and in satire obviously there are some serious issues with common culture today. The other post was about public schools and how a lack of responsibility on part of the parents ends in vilification of the system while it continues to work for immigrants. I can't imagine why it would deleted [except if you are unable to emotionally handle the argument]. Its a point of view with facts in favor of it, deal with it if you can. Generally, right or wrong, I have noticed that the admins are prudes for the lack of a better word, which unfortunately is not conducive for a more enriched conversation. Let me guess, this post will get deleted even though there is nothing offensive here. Prudes I said!

I think Mark legitimately does not want to become a political target and attract that kind of attention on this board, even if everyone polarizes and attacks each other, it wouldn't really matter. But if the board is called a political propaganda place, it will bring all sorts of outside attention and I am sure Mark has no intention to deal with those...

Although what I posted was pretty funny, imho. :D

I have some really great stuff that I can't post here or where my clients might see it because it would be inappropriate.
Sometimes I'll PM it to friends who might appreciate it or email it to them.
But I can't post it here without offending 90% of everybody, which is 15% more than usual.
I got a million of 'em! :lol:

So the post on the Bernank sitting in a bar getting sloshed and spilling his guts got deleted. Too bad. A classic. Will, you're not celebrating your recent success and imitating Bennie are you? :lol:
