And kindly note that I didn't delete your post, as I understand that it was an honest oversight in judgment. No big deal, but that's as far as it goes. However, the rest of your post is absurd. Let me disabuse you of your patently incorrect notions.[b said:Quote[/b] ]I read the forum rules before making my post, and believed that I was within the requirements to post as I did.
Unlike big government, we DON'T have too many rules, and if you weren't so busy promoting your own ego, you'd accept the very valid point being made that we don't want a free classified ad section to be turned into an auction site. If you want to insist on "how you prefer to do business", then I equally have a right to insist on what I permit on this site. Furthermore, again unlike big government, this is a private forum where I set the standard of behavior because it's a private concern.[b said:Quote[/b] ]So just like big government, you all feel the need to make me do this a certain way.
And you contributed how much, exactly, that gives you the right to pontificate?[b said:Quote[/b] ]And here it was not long back, you were begging for support from the forum users so this place could stay afloat.
Apparrently it escaped your observation that WaltherForums has grown by leaps and bounds because we DON'T have too many rules, or have deal with childish nonsense like this. We're not shrinking members, we're growing.[b said:Quote[/b] ]You know, for wanting more people to get this site used more, you all have a strange knack for bullying people into leaving it.
Our first amendment rights to free speech do not pertain to private venues, where the owner can set the standard of conduct, can enforce his own rules and sanction whom he wishes. But with free speech comes also the responsibility to know when to keep your mouth shut, and cut your losses.[b said:Quote[/b] ]Yeah, I'll bet you delete this post. How's that for free speech?
No, you're not going to get an award for the most views. But you do get the award for being the biggest jerk. As of now, this thread is locked.[b said:Quote[/b] (shootalot @ Sep. 20 2005,00:24)]I should get an award for starting the 'most viewed thread'. Anyone know of a thread in here that has more replies/viewings? KEEP IT ALIVE!!
