There have been some members that have complained that their free speech is restricted on this site. While it is true that you can take your soapbox to the public square and say what ever you want as long as it does not violate standards.( vulgarity obsene and a few others). But when you are not in public things change .
Consider the case of the liberal darling hero Whoopi Goldberg . She insulted Jews one day and was quickly removed from the show and punished. The libs were crying FREE SPEECH loudly but the punishment continued and there was even consideration to fire her! Her free speech became restricted when she accepted a job on an entity that she didn’t own.
I don’t own CF… so therefore I must abide by their community standards
So Bob and RBF if you want absolute free speech on this site that bad just get your funds together and buy the current ownership out!
That’s my hospital. I’m a full benefit veteran - thank you taxpayers - and I have heard and read Private Ralph’ story many times. He gave all that he had out of love for his fellow man. I salute his photo every time I walk thru the doors
Just curious, and on a serious note, what would you do with the site if you owned it? Banding me, Bob, and anyone with a different opinion is obviously first thing…, But seriously, other than that, what would you do with it?
I would require the primary focus to be on fishing. I would not immediately ban you but you would be given an opportunity to become more pleasant and cordial If you disagreed of course I would ban you forever. No site out there needs a heckler
About 3 or 4 mornings most weeks I have breakfast in a little hole in the wall place with 6 or 7 men sometimes 1 very intelligent woman. some Dems. Some non affiliated and a few republicans. We would never discredit each other with dirt from the past or vilify, belittle-or insult each other… we enjoy our discussions and when one is missing we miss him With this in mind I would require that all members become accountable.to the point That we know to whom we are speaking. This would promote civility. I have no problem with a civil respectful person with a differing viewpoint we get back what we give. I can already anticipate what your reply will be But perhaps you could see another’s point if view. I mean look we know that you are a never trumper but do you have to beat everyone on the head about it every day?
Do you really think Bobs rude attitude and silly photos and cartoons and repetitiousness help this site? I am quite friendly with 2 merchants that have advertised here and they know who you and Bob are and desire to spend their advertising $$$$ in a more friendly setting . If my money was on the line there would be steps taken to keep anyone from fouling the atmosphere here.
Soo, then why do you act like you hate Dems here so much… How would your Dem buddies feel if they read the garbage you post here?
Why don’t you ask Bay to quit posting misinformation frequently, and yes Bay does try to influence what people think and call people names… You and I both know why you don’t call him out… Simply because you believe the same crap too…
Geez, the Drumpf loyalist and the victim mentality… Oh, the MSM is after us, fake news, blah blah blah…
Almost forgot, I asked you a simple question, and you come back this all this other crap… Again, what would you do with this site SPECIFICALLY if you owned it… Fishing is obvious… If you don’t understand my question, then say so, I’ll clarify if needed…
As I expected total bull crap from you. Everyone here read where I offered to to extend an olive branch to you and Bob and basically you both spat on it. . I’m not the one that starts posts with Haha laughing at their fellow members. I don’t care if you are a Dem or what ever but if one is rude , irritating , heckling and obnoxious they get it back. No one likes to hear someone try to ram their view down their throat.No one likes to be insulted and ridiculed which is your stock in trade But it’s easy to do when you are hiding behind a keyboard
I challenge you to try a kinder approach for a few weeks and see how it is received. I seriously doubt you can do it Because creating a disturbance and issues is your sick entertainment , but if you can , I’m pretty sure your treatment and respect would improve
All lies. Your apologies were in fact insults. I pmed you when I was on at trip to N C passing near fort mill and you replied to keep on moving. “ this is a nice community we keep riff raff like you out. Keep moving”. I challenge you to post the actual insult riddled apology’s both for all to see and expose your cowardly lies. You don’t have the guts to post the actual words you typed. Everyone here knows what you are. No man would accept an apology that reversed into a further insult
