I am commited as ever to freedom of speech. Yet each and every one of us owns their own site. Most bloggers will honor basic frredom of expression to disagree. A clear point in matter is that vulgarity is not freedom of speech but an abuse of speach. Thus people being called the N word or gays being called the familiar f word is not acceptable.
Posters should not post more then the actual blog host as a rule. Nobody complains about real spirited debate on topic. Thus I have zero problem with Rob or Justin advocating their side of an issue on the rare post on gay themes. Most of the time I tend to agree with them to a certain extent.
However having a board filled with the same posts over and over is not freedom of speech it is abuse of speech. Since banning John Brown he has taken to the creation of a site that depicts me as a pedophile. I join the ranks of Dr Yeagley, Michelle Malkin and others in having more then one parody site. The real crime is that the satire is so lame. There are many posts to be satired on this site but satiring a post on a gay bashing crime was more odd then funny. However, Brown has no skill and Hank Snow has never been known for creativity or wit. Snow is known to have the intellectual capacity of your average sea sponge on his best days.
The bottom line is that as this blog and others grow we should expect attacks. The posting of Ducky is not an attack but an on topic dissent and we support the right of dissent. However I disagree because of............... is another animal the the ranings about Muslimgoblins and head coffins.
Uptown is a special case and is banned due to his own promise. We hold posters to their word and Uptown is no exception. Uptown sets the standard of stupidity everywhere he goes. He has posted and interacted with me for three years and still hasn't figured out the difference between a Cold War Liberal, a conservative or liberterian. We do not post on race here as blacks are Americans. Unlike Veggietown many blacks serve their country each and every day. They do not sit around with the attitude this country owes them X,Y or Z. They work hard for their families like any other Americans. Nor do I look down on low wage earners who struggle. My friend Jerome works more then one job and does the best he can every day. Jerome does so as an American just the same as you and I. Uptown has always been more Red then black. When dealing with Uptown think Frankfurt School clown too lazy to read the text.
Genuine posters are always welcome but as our community grows one should expect satire and nut jobs like Brown to target this site and some of yours.
Mr Beamish in 08, Ducky hiding from Elmer, 167 a ratings dud, Uptown now classified as genetically altered produce and John Brown to a mental health facility nearest home.
