So do you. I agree that generally the board as it is is okay, but they are too quick to pull the trigger on anything involving homosexuals. I mean even a joke that is pretty tame gets pulled. Same thing when it comes to blacks. God forbid you make a crack around here. PC liberals' idea of having a sense of humor is Garrisson Keilor (sp?) or Bill Russell ... GAG!<quoted text>
You're exactly right in your conclusion.
The sad thing is Bob makes some good points, sometimes, and I usually read his posts despite the extreme radical right-wing stance. The Dispatch has a tough call on some of his stuff, for sure, but it's their forum and they'll delete him as they see fit.
If he, or we, don't like it, guess we'll go somewhere else. Myself, I think the Dispatch strikes a good balance in an awkward situation of deciding what to permit. That's part of the reason I like this board so much.
But the fact remains that if they put the screws to this board, then it becomes just more lame drivel like everything else out there. Right now is a nice mix. The Dispatch gives the official communist party version, the hooligans like me tell them what we really think. That's what makes this interesting - kind of like talk radio.
