Freedom of speech!

Postby Michelin » Thu, 13 Jul 2006 9:49 am

How much freedom of speech does one have on this forum?

I call on all forumers to participate in this debate.

For example do you think it is all right to say that this forum sucks, as some of the moderators are real jerks?

Or say "freedom to the forumers! Kick out the mentally deranged moderators" (we’ll keep the good ones of course).

What is your take on this?

I don't think your posts will be deleted for saying the forum sucks. I would however question why you are here if that's what you think??? This is a FREE forum provided for you and the moderators/owners are free to do what they please. If you're not happy go elsewhere or start your own

No, it doesn't mean that at all.

It's just a coincidence probably. :P :cool:

and a reasonable one! (Deepinaharta Cardiff is a lady furiously reloading the page, getting "Error 404 Not Found" and having nothing else to do!)

Keepers Of The Logged IP Addresses, what say you?

anyway, to respond to the OP, I've always said what I wanted to here and have not had a problem with what I've posted

my take is that you're not interested in a debate at all but have a personal axe to grind.

Why you are asking this question as one of your very first posts on the forum - Are you for real or do you just feel like causing trouble. Troll comes to mind.

BTW I have never banned anyone - I just like to have a go at them.

And yes I have been described as a jerk on accassion but that comes with the territory baby :twisted:

This is a pretty funny thread. Yes, deepinheartacardiff there is probably is an angry lady. Heck, all over sing there are are prob about 50 disappointed people. Nevertheless, my two cents on this is that EADG, you are lucky - you never stepped over that invisible line. My former name did - and had no idea there was a line - and Singapore's version of Big Brother killed the name - and you know what? I didn't like it - so now i spend my time elsewhere - or with my children...
