Racism not tolerated, fair enough, its racist and thats bad. Personal attacks are not tolerated*, fair enough, its personal and thats bad. Swearing not tolerated, fair enough, thats swearing and thats bad. Death threats are not tolerated, fair enough, they're death threats and they are bad.

General harmless chat, in a miscellaneous section of a forum - not tolerated?

Bad spelling and grammar, is of course tolerated, if we cant understand your opinion it makes no difference to us. Along with countless jumbled word threads.

*Exception of dandoc2.

I am a tolerant person, but I just cannot tolerate the intolerant!:p

Hi t0mm,
depends on what the "harmless chitchat" was. What you may regard as harmless, others may not. The mods have to try and walk the middle line on this. Its difficult for them, dammed if they do, dammed if they don't.

If your comments are more "radical" than the normal then maybe for that topic you need to find a forum that is more accepting of your views.
Cheers

Erm, tOmm?

Has someone upset you then?

In most cases it's not the way that it's said but the way that it's taken...

and then there are some people that just like the chance to complain.

We don't have free speech. What ever gave you that idea ?

Not really sure what tomm is referring to... but it may be the thread which was 9 months old, which a spammer bumped... and I removed his post, and therefore had to remove any follow up posts from regular members??

It would really help if people actually explained what they were ranting about before going off on a rant :p Contrary to popular belief, mods are not psychic robots.

Hi Emma, Nice Avatar.

Is he upset because LIKE ME his post was removed without being informed?
Or was I just unlucky.
(sorry cant give you details of my post cos it's been removed!!)

I just removed everybody's after the spammers. Realise we don't delete posts for fun, sometimes posts have to be deleted for consistency in a thread, for example, those quoting the original removed post, and then those referring to those deleted posts etc etc...so I'm expected to PM all... not really going to happen...

I didn't realise this was a ranting thread, I thought t0mm had started this thread so that people can execute their free speech and keep it all nice and tidy in one ickle place.
Guess I'll just have to execute my opinions somewhere else.....................

ETYMOLOGY: 15c in obsolete sense 'to suffocate'.


OR

Gag:
colloq noun a joke or trick, especially as used by a professional comic. verb (gagged, gagging) intrans to tell jokes.

Im confused:?

Sorry Emma, didn't make it clear.
My post had nothing to do with any other thread.

It was a list of reduced items that I posted and had removed (By whom I will never know) with no communication whatever. Most rude!
I just hope that this was the exception and not a new rule.
