I didn't look down ...

... to notice the eggshells scattered liberally across the floor of this forum.  Apparently they are there though, because in this forum of ADULTS, threads apparently get locked when a word or a phrase in found in a post that makes some people nervous.

I cannot understand this hyper sensitivity. Words mean things

If you call someone a "mechanic" no one is offended, but referring to that same individual as a "grease monkey" is somehow offensive.

There are proper English words to describe everything, and there are derogatory words also found in the English language that describe the same things, but somehow those words are deemed to be offensive in this politically correct world.

Prostitute. Working girl.  Concubine.  Mistress.  Okay
H___r. W___e.  NOT okay.

Lawyer. Attorney. Counselor. Okay
Ambulance chaser.  Shark.  NOT okay.

Homosexual. Gay. Queer. Lesbian. Okay.
F___t.  C__k s___r. C___t m___r.  NOT okay.

The list goes on.

So I am puzzled as to WHY a thread was locked after I used proper, factual, accurate, descriptive and non-offensive words to describe the previous President.

I did not call him a n___r, or a f___t, or a sand n___r, or a rug m___y, or anything that could be deemed to be offensive.

So, my bad!  I did not see the eggshells strewn generously across the floor of this forum.  I shall tread more gingerly moving forward.  Undecided

I do not know what post(s) being locked you are referring to.

I see only one recently and the reason was not because of anything you posted.  Admin had his reasons.  It's not always about you or any one person.

If your interpretation of ADULTS on a forum where posters are
free to use slur words (which Admin also has a reason to filter certain cuss words out), then I can only suggest you go to fora that allow such free for all language.

To be honest, and based on your comments, it sounds more like you are the one being hyper sensitive.

You did offer one good suggestion, that being you tread lightly in the future.  Making inferences that posters here do anything
'liberally' is not going to get points with anyone here.

If the conditions here are not meeting with your approval, feel
free to take leave then.   CF has always dealt with posters who go to other forums to whine how they were treated on CF.

CF is not for everyone.

Whoa!  The conditions here DO meet with my approval, and that is why I was surprised to see the thread locked only a minute after I posted a reply.   Naturally, I assumed it was locked because of something I wrote.

I have ZERO interest in dragging this forum down into the gutter.  It is one of the few remaining GOOD forums on the Net!

Perhaps it was just timing?  Maybe I am a bit on edge about being censored so often (USUALLY by the Left)

Why was that thread locked?  Do we get to know what triggered the lock, so we can be wary of it in the future?  Will it be UNlocked?  I was enjoying the conversation.

I do not usually employ the language of the street vernacular in my posts, but sometimes, a well chosen word most succinctly conveys the proper message and emotion.

Okay, as long as I didn't trigger the lock, we are good.  I've been in Facebook jail so many times for ticking off the liberals that I am now the person who decides how to arrange the furniture and what color to paint the walls  Grin  I don't walk on eggshells very well, but I DO know how to maintain a civil tongue.

Now who is overly sensitive?  Liberally is one of many words that means the same thing in that context. 

The guy (Generously / haphazardly / casually / carelessly / thoughtlessly / liberally) scattered papers around the room.

It has nothing to do with BEING a "liberal."  Wink

I saw that, Wayne.  That is completely reasonable, but "pending review" only a minute or two after I replied tended to make me believe it was MY reply you were reviewing.

Sorry for the confusion on MY part.

Hugs, everyone!  HUGS!

Thanks for understanding and it is appreciated.

As I noted on that particular post, the NCO forum is not readable
to non-members.  Admin had moved the post to NCO for that reason, so nothing would be misunderstood by liberal readers that Conservatives are the ones initiating violence.  Admin, like many others believe it is liberals who always seem to intiate needless violence.  The post was moved back to the News forum in error, and Admin removed it back to NCO.  The post was locked so nothing more would be posted to it.  It was not due to your posted reply.  It was just coincidence that you were the last reply on the post.  Sorry for any misunderstanding.   Smiley

   I think you guys are chatting about the "civil war" thread.  That's sort of a question.
   It ran for a bit and then, as said above, needed further consideration.  That's all I got out of the topic being locked and moved.  Nothing seemed out of the ordinary to me.
