I just wanted to point out that a society, whether big or small, can be influenced by what media they have available to them. Perhaps somebody says something to the contrary of somebody that is in power. Should their words be stricken from the record in order to lead the recipient of said media down a preconceived path?

In a free society, people SHOULD have more than one source of information. The truly wise will use everything at their disposal... those that have closed minds, or are partisan, only use those sources that support their own views. :twisted:

Welcome back, beat...

:twisted:

Thanks for the welcome Stripey. I like to think that people should be able to voice any opinion they may have in a free society. And I think all should be free to do so.

Where has this thread been moved to anyways?

Edit: Ahh...Its in the media section. I suppose I was speaking of the media. This media here I guess. :wink:

It sure as hell didn't belong in the INTRODUCE YOURSELF forum. :roll:

THINK before you post as to where your rant is best suited. A mod or I will move any post if it's not in the appropriate forum. That has nothing to do with free speech, either. It's called thinking before you hit the submit button.

Very powerful words indeed. I will try to remember to think about what you would think is appropriate before posting again. Thanks in advance for your understanding of my feeble brain spasms.

Watch out, its a long way to fall of that high horse of yours.... :shock:

hmmmmm...that could almost be perceived as a threat. I'll let it go this time, beat...but you would do well to heed Stripey's words. He's giving you good advice...and he was too polite to refer to your misspelling of the word "off." :roll:

Think about many things before you come back to make more of your "slash and run" posts....beat.

From that avatar of his, beat's definitely a CHICKEN! AND he's got his feathers in a mighty tight wad because he's been told he has to follow the rules, and he's whining because his original post, the one that started this thread, was moved from the INTRODUCE YOURSELF forum... [smilie=to funny.gif]

Any bird with half a brain would know that a discussion about media goes in the MEDIA forum! :laughing5:

1. Personal Attacks and Bigoted Statements that are deliberately insulting, obscene, and/or suggest physical harm to another member or guest of this board. You will have NO warning if it is determined by both mods and administrators that the statements were made with malice. You will be banned.


Ive lost my gumption to show you that you are a hypocrite. I guess Ill stop wasting my time.

No insults were rendered, beat...I'm just calling it like it is.

Do you deny that your avatar is a man dressed up in a chicken suit?

Do you deny that the suit contains feathers?

Do you deny that your original post wasn't better suited for the media forum?

What about the guideline below do you not understand?
Quote:
Off-topic posts. These may be moved to a more appropriate thread and/or forum at the discretion of the moderators or the administrators.


I don't really care if your feathery y-fronts are in a wad. I don't really care that they have been since some folks that you don't particularly like at this board are now in a position to make you and your conservative-lite friends adhere to a few reasonable rules. You've not been asked to become a part of this tight, friendly group, and that also sticks in your beak.

That's definitely not going to change....so don't post anymore threats, and don't post anymore squawks. As I said before, heed Stripey's advice. You'll feel better when your y-fronts loosen up.

DO.g's is entitled to his opinion about any of your friends, beat. We all know who they are.

As to your personal complaint about him, what part of the last post in the locked INSULTS thread of the CHIT-CHAT forum do you not understand?

Your post has been deleted, beat, because you're ranting about a moderator and the administrator in open forum. That's against the guidelines.

I refer you to the last post I made [url=http://tvnewslies.org/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=6054]HERE.
