what does everyone think of the below? (there's my question - now you don't have a reason to close or lock my thread).
bishop's thread is gone
The problem with this forum
okay here's what the moderators of this site need to do:
a) stop bullying posters when they present an opposing view. no one should be forced to explain their beliefs - especially when the request is made in an argumentative, discouraging, and demeaning manner.
b) stop closing and locking threads that don't fit your needs - such as mine and that of countless others - bishop's for example. so long as we're not posting provocative or pervasive materials, there should be no reason for our voices to be muted by 3 individuals - the moderators (andrea mostly).
c) let people say what they want. the moderators censure this site like we're living in china.
d) the moderators need to back off and chill out. your job is not to censure the site to fit your needs but to ensure no one gets hurt or illegal activity takes place on this site. and from the nature of the posts that you've targeted to date since i've recently joined this site, i don't believe they've fit any of those description.
i'm sure this post too will be closed or locked down for some capricious reasons that one of you moderators will conjure - like you closed my other thread b/c i wasn't asking a question? since when did every thread have to be about a question? can't we just express our views - whether they're positive or negative?
by the way, i will keep posting this until changes are made. so, don't bother locking or closing it. and if my id is "banned" i'll simply make a new one. this authoritative regime needs to end. this site needs to be a public modem of free speech.
