Nothing you can do to stop it.
Unfortunately not. It is a sign that "Idiocracy" has arrived.

Yes sir, that is exactly my point. You enjoy the privilege of typing coarse words. When I type those same words, in no more confrontational manner than you, my posts get deleted and never make it the same screen that you are allowed to splash them on. Bias.
I second that.

I cannot post "F**k" without asteriks. Rose_NoHo, X-Box and certain other "more equal" posters can.

I've told you several times that your posts come across as angry; as though you're always looking for confrontation and fights.
THAT is why, I believe, you may have been banned.
Whenever I've typed in coarse language, I am alerted by the TOIX system that my words may be offensive. All I do hit the "post comment" tab a second time and my post is created--blue words and all.
And I fail to see how a f**ked-up show of bias can be missed.

And this how it goes, when I omit the asterisks:

Be polite. Inappropriate posts may be removed by the moderator.
Although I had to edit it, for the post to go through, see? No confrontation here, but, without the asterisks, not gonna go through. So, please save your gentle chidings for someone else. We know bias when we see it.

It was post # 190448. It was deleted. If Rose_NoHo or X-Box posted it, it wouldn't have been deleted.

19054 was deleted. I typed out f**k. Everyone has seen the more equal posters use the full uncensored word with impunity.

Gosh, it must be pretty bad to feel that your rights are being quashed. We gay people wouldn't know ANYTHING about that.

Seems the worm has turned...

Look, there are thousands of people using TOPIX at any one point during the day. Do you really think a moderator is following your specific posts? I doubt it.

My guess is that you've hacked off so many people in this forum that they routinely report your posts as being offensive. That's why you get banned.

It's not bias from the site moderators. It's just some folks who do a drive-by hit on your postings.

It comes with the territory.

I, personally, don't report people; unless they threaten violence. And that's happened a couple of times.

When I lived in Greeneville, TN and started "mouthing off" (i.e.: expressing my support for LGBT issues), a couple of people found out my identity, which wasn't hard to do in a small town.

They made physical threats against me; involving spikes if I'm not mistaken. It got a little creepy.

But I'm a big guy--6'5", 250#s. I don't scare easily. I've taken a baseball bat to the back of the head a few times. And I won't even get into the number of balls being slammed into my face (it's joke).

I have never reported anyone, I figure if you cant take what you dish out... then one should not be posting.

But then I donít blame you for the personal threats issue, I would report that too.

Gezzz you are taller than I am.. Im only 6'3" LOL

I used to let things people say pass in silence, but as I grew older I realized that silence is consent. I do not consent to this unequal bias, so if saying what is right is "mouthing off" then I will stop when they do.

Old Swiftboater Bill uses a picture of a tombstone with my name on it as his avatar. It's cool with Topix.
