We've decided to lift the moratorium on political and hot-button/controversial topics in Miscellaneous. However, there are some stipulations.
Can we edit rules post #1 so I don't only read three posts down and start screaming at T'Bonz for this:
Politics and hot button stuff do NOT belong in Misc.
I realize some of the reason it has drifted here is because a poster can't post in TNZ and so is bringing it here and his "friends" are following him to make trouble.
Knock it the fuck off. It stops now, or I will stop it. If that includes tossing posters off the board, so be it.
You have TNZ. Play your games there. Keep it out of the other forums. As for the poster in question, you lost TNZ privileges due to your behavior. You are NOT to do that shit in other forums. Got it?
Now, I do believe this post from Bonz should be addressed, and should set alarms screaming in everyones head, but I'm willing, grudgingly, to let it go by. (for now)
But it's a rules post. Surely we can't expect people to read the whole thread to pick up on a rule that was modified 34 posts in?
I like you, and it's cute how you roll in every once in a while like a bad case of the flu to shake up the system, but this situation was resolved and moved on from months ago. As you already CLEARLY know from having participated in and creating several political or hot button topics, the moratorium has been lifted, so please drop the Rebel Alliance bit.
No one else has seemed to have a problem with this topic in the past few months, and I don't think it's unreasonable to read all of four whole posts down from the top.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
