Tony has since apologized for locking your own thread. I have been there too before, doesn't feel too good.
I was never opposed to what you were saying, I think I made that clear.
Having been around HW longer than you, I knew what started out as an innocent thread on your behalf, wouldn't take long till it turned into an ugly session. Seen that a time or two.
I quote the rule #11, not against you or your initial thread, but to everyone that was starting to jump into the fray. If a moderator had been handy at the time, they would have done the same thing. I was a moderator here for a short period of time, and its hard to make those kind of decisions like Tony exercised.
I wish we could include religious and political subjects, because they can indeed impact the general subject of PC, and express the kind of men that we really are, apart from our cancer. But based on events that have happened in HW in the past, it would be chaos and get out of hand so fast.
If people could learn to be tolerant, and respect those of all faiths, or no faiths at all, it could be done in a civil manner. But again, this place belongs to Peter, a great guy, and these are his rules, and we either abide by them, or we can choose not to be here. The moderators have the unpleasant duty of allowing all the leeway they can, on these rules, yet still enforce them according to the spirit of the owner here.
Do I think you did or write anything wrong or troublesome in your original thread? Nope, nada, nyet, non. But its not my site.
