    see, that's not personally attacking.

    That's observing behavior and commenting on the bahavior.

    Attacking would be directly commenting on you as a person. Seriously. Stop baiting people in these threads to strong arm your view that political threads should not be allowed.

    You warned me not to troll, and I took your warning, so I have decided to add my opinion to these threads rather than troll.

    I still dont understand how my opinion is still considered "trolling"

    Is it personal attacks if a person feels they are being insulted?

    Im not baiting anyone, I dont even have that view about political threads anymore, I thought about it alot last night, and came to the conclusion that political threads are a good thing for the board and that I would rather voice my opinion on the rather than try to get them shut down. So I do that and everyone jumps all over me.

    The crying emoticon represents my agreeance with Johnny Footstool in that it is sad that the schiavo case is bigger news than this, and my second post is simply my opinion.

    are some people's opinions not welcome here?

    When you use the same single emoticon method to express your opinion as you did when you were "trolling," it's difficult... no, impossible to discern a difference. Personally, I would welcome the change you describe.

    From the announcement at the top of the public board:
    If you do not think you can handle these discussions without breaking the rules, then I would strongly suggest you do not post in that forum, as the punishment system above will be strictly enforced. Bans will NOT be overturned, as has occassionally happened in the past.

    Why don't we just start a Cbus thread so we can talk about craig and his opinions there and we could talk about the subject of the post here?

    That is unless we all want Cbus to get his way and have us all sit here and talk about anything but the post that started the thread.

    I agree that a President should say something at a time of any significant national tragedy. Reagan did it. Clinton was very good at it, saying he could "feel" others' "pain". Whether or not Clinton really felt someone else's pain can be debated of course, but it seemed to make people feel better to hear him say it. It is just part of the ceremonial part of the job.

    As much as I hate to take Cbus' side, it's not fair to tell him to stay away. There are a lot of people on these threads that can get away with saying things, that aren't appropriate, but because they say it in a more tactful way, they are allowed to get away with it. Just because Cbus comes right out and says it, he shouldn't be ganged up on.

    Hey, I tried to stay on subject, someone else took off in another direction.
