My 2 cents...............
I guess I missed the bulk of what was said before the thread got deleted. I'm not really all that interested in reading it anyways. However, I'm kind of confused why anyone would call for a ban on racist remarks considering all the other BS that is plastered all over this site?
I've seen everything from physical threats to accusations of child molestation on this site. Newbies getting reamed, sometimes with very little provocation. And everything above a 10 second car is slow. Blah Blah. To call for a ban for racists comments made by some random provincial rube is beyond me. In context of every other acerbic remark made on this site a ban on racists remarks is a cavalier approach.
I guess I don't understand what is and what is not acceptable on this site? From a spectators point of view, it is all one big double standard and a bit cliquish. On most sites any physical threats result in a permaban. On this site it is almost a daily theme. Someone gets bent about a comment about their car and 3 pages later there are call outs. I think that is ridiculous and those people deserve a temporary ban. I cannot for the life of me figure out why anyone cares about what other people think about their vehicle or themselves. The lack of self-esteem and maturity on this site is overwhelming at times. Politics is a divisive subject, but it does not always have to bring out the worst in people. People need to get over themselves and realize the illusion of anonymity (even people who use a proxy) on the internet is just that, an illusion. The perceived idea of anonymity is the reason people act like belligerent dolts on the internet.
Another thing that is ridiculous and is getting really old is the "sick fuck" banter been Paladin, gpamp, and black01gt. It would be nice to get through one political thread without seeing the ad hominem attacks. I don't know what the real story behind that situation is, but I think it should be taken to PM's.
it was not a problem to bring money to his house at 10pm.so why is it a problem to call and bitch.it wasnt a problem when we were all sitting around smoking pot together.yes i said it we all were smoking pot together.what now stupid.
