What thread is this all about? If we cannot check it out, then we don't know what we think about whatever happened.
A number of threads... If it was not a pattern I would not have posted my observation...

right wingers are warned or their threads are simply closed when they get out of line while left wingers are banned without notice or explanation.


And its all fine and good to recognize that nobody fits perfectly into any one box... but lets not pretend the labels arent meaningful just so we can all feel special...

Has nothing to do with feeling special.

If I said I was conservative (without context) what are some of the things I might hear:

I watch Fox News and am duped by them.
I hate the poor.
I am racist
I would not vote for Obama because he is black.
I hate women.
I want to take away women's rights.
I kiss at the feet of the wealthy.
I believe corporations are more important than people.
I am Christian
I believe in Creation
I don't care about the environment
I cannot think for myself
I hang on Rush's every word.

Those are the things, among many others that many people would assume and say about me. Pretty much any political article on the internet generates that kind of labeling.

I am a conservative and none of those things apply to me.

It has nothing to do with feeling special, it has to do with the wrongheaded nature of labeling.

Well, I think it's more whatever the moderators don't like. My views on alpha and women being beta are conservative and it causes me to get banned often.

I'll call the bull**** flag on this right here and now. If you are referring to your two bans, both were for disrespectful comments to the OP of threads involving marital issues and not any political discussions at all. I would point out to you the number 2. Clear enough?

As far as the liberal vs. conservative threads, well when you've been a mod long enough you realize these will go in circles forever so the only thing I really care about is that it remains civil. Your statements are bogus.

I wasnt referring to my bans at all. If I was this would have all been in a pm... And I got a different answer from the site owner about my second ban than the one you just gave, maybe look into it before posting non-sense. Maybe when banning people in the future, give them a clear explanation for WHY they have been banned...

If my statements werent true then there would be at least 3 more people who should have been banned for disrespectful, uncivil behavior last week.

Use the report feature. And yes I did see yours from the 13th and 15th. None warranted action.

Maybe it depends on the mod.

Looks like the TAM member relocation program struck again. Poor guy.
