And For That Reason. I Am Out
04/15/19 at 10:42:12
 
Recently I took a short vacation from posting on this Forum due to my dissatisfaction over the Moderator continuing to post threads of cartoons which is pushing other Political Messages off of the first page.  I guess I expected things to be different after the vacation but I should have known.  Yesterday on the Sports Board I posted a message about the Stupid Cartoons and Wayne replies "If you don't like then, don't read them".  I don't read them and that is the problem.  Everytime a Stupid Cartoon thread is started it takes up the space of a Conservative worded post, which is the whole idea of this forum.  There are less and less worded messages to read.  Is it too much to ask to have only three or four threads.  The Moderators bump other posts to different boards but leave the cartoons.  Yesterday on the Sports Board, I made a comment about Stupid Cartoons.  Nate Byrd tells me  "I hope this is not going to go back to the re-complaining about toons again.  You know what that cost you last time."  We can't even complain here without threats.  Nothing happened to me last time, I only left because I was tired of not seeing threads with words conveying a thought.  At least half of the threads are Stupid Cartoons.  I guess Nate Byrds comment on my Stupid Cartoon remark was a stop complaining or I will ban you from the board.  This board is only a shell of when I joined it in 2009.  As they say on Shark Tank, "For that reason I am Out."  Good Bye.

Sorry to hear this, BUT, there is NO reason anyone has to go into a link with a joke.  I ignore a lot of things that I may not like, so be it.  I'm sure your welcome back anytime you decide to come back in.  Wink

The Moderators bump other posts to different boards


Which doesn't happen all that often, a post being moved to a more appropriate themed board.  And they were valid decisions.
Most others are spliced because a couple of posters don't seem to take the time to check to see if that post is there already.

Yesterday on the Sports Board, I made a comment about Stupid Cartoons.  Nate Byrd tells me  "I hope this is not going to go back to the re-complaining about toons again.  You know what that cost you last time."  We can't even complain here without threats. 


No one made any threats.

And last time it appeared comments made about the toons resulted in more positive remarks to have them remain.  They are political cartoons.  Sports posts are not.  And I don't care if Trump likes Tiger Woods.  It was still a sports post nonetheless.
If you were not allowed to complain here, the post would have been removed.

You remind me of a time way back, when I went to complain about someone in a group I was in.  The others agreed they didn't care for the actions of that one guy.  So when I asked them why they didn't do something about him, they said to me...'it's not bothering 'us', it's bothering 'you.'  Wink
I guess they knew 'acceptance is the answer to all their problems'.

Now you're being melodramatic.   Roll Eyes
No one said anything about banning you. Please stop putting words in my mouth.  You are not qualified to do so.
I merely pointed out that your whining the previous two times cost you to decide not to post anymore.   And your inference the last time, that you would probably be banned was incorrect as well.  You didn't get banned, did you?  Or would you have preferred to have been, to play the martyr.

CF has always been pretty much the same.   Posters come and go.   Posters move, some posters have passed on.  Not sure how existing posters who ARE enjoying themselves here feel about being considered a 'shell' of what it used to be.  Huh

But if that's your own personal perception and there is no further enjoyment in it for you, then maybe it is best you do leave.  If you wish me to cancel your id out, let me know.

This all had to do with you needlessly interjecting on this post that had been rightfully moved and had little to nothing to do with the post at hand.

The decision you chose to make was from your own fruition.

Not sure why you're confusing an Y with an A (as those letter keys are not even close, but it's Nyte_Byrd, not Nate_Byrd.

Now you made me log on when I didn't want to.  Wink No reason to leave. The threads don't bother me. Just wait until they sink down the page if you don't like them, then post.

I have other reasons why I'm not posting but far be it that Wayne or Byrd would be the cause of it.

Take a break or at best don't make proclamations of leaving. Take it from someone who knows. I did that once and to this day I still have to put up with digs from other posters about it (no not on this board).

Think it over. Smiley

I normally don’t click on thread bynpeiple threatening to quit the board. I also dont click on the “cartoon threads” unless I want to. There are many threads that I do not comment on.  It because I don’t agree or have a problem with the subject under discussion. Sometimes I just want to read what others are saying. If I have something I want to add I add it. If not, I move on.

Further I am a free speech abosolutist unless someone is calling for violence. All that said, I don’t have a problem with the funny threads. There is a lot of terrible things going on out there and sometimes it’s good to have a laugh and let it be. It does mean we are not concerned.

You complain about not having threads with what you deem to be substance. Well, why don’t you start these threads. Why don’t you lead the way in making the kinds of comments you wish to read and let the other members have at it? Maybe they will be interested and maybe they won’t.  Dont stew about it just be the example.

We conservatives have a tendency to complain. We need to stop complaining AND DO SOMETHING.

Mack ... I agree with you almost all the time.

Having said that, I wonder what this is REALLY all about.  If you are piszed about cartoons ... get over it.  There have been at least two times when I had no clue what the cartoon was about and I asked about it.  One time the reply was "humor".  I'm still having my stupid attack because I saw no humor ... so what.  The 10,000 other cartoons came across loud and clear … and they were/are great.

I also comprehend the concept of individual differences.  That is why in the opening sentence I said the word "almost".  It seems a pity that you are entering a period of self-imposed exile.  I shall miss your perspective … but as is a common phrase … "Don't let the door …"

Bigmck -- I'm surprised you find cartoons so aggravating.  You've always struck me as a level headed poster.  (Did someone drop an "aggravation" pill in your beer?) Grin

When it comes to posting something (I think) humorous, if it fits politics, I post it here.  I seldom post "funnies" n the entertainment site.

Seems strange you would let this bother you so much you'd quit over it. 
Well, we'll miss your posts.  I hope you decide to ignore the aggravations and come back again.

Peace, bro!

Some times I look at the cartoon threads, but I don’t see where they are restricting threads with “Conservative worded” content.
Seems to me if it bothers you so much, maybe it IS time to move on. Huh
