First ammendment..Gone?

Yesterday there was a post by John praising decent people, today it`s gone. Since when did PC become more important than the 1st ammendment? This really gets me in an uproar.Since when did a welfare cheating, drug dealing, child pimping, piece of garbage`s feelings become more important than the truth and the right to speak it?

Steve... great post...but be careful...my post was pulled because it raised some sensibilities.....only by one moderator...I don't want to make waves. and I do agree that this is a fishing board and I have been invloved for many years and see both points of view..... but it got under one moderators skin... a new recent moderator........but thanks for this one you posted....John

Slinger -

It had nothing to do with the "first amendment" believe me. It had to do with ettiquette and appropriate material, very much in line with the rules of the forum we all signed up for and also presevation of the unwritten ones that are the magic of this place.

Try dropping a few PMs to people first please when you want to question such actions, or else come right out and question our integrity. Either way it only makes more work for those who take responsibilities to keep things in check.

thanks

Hmmmmmmmmm......
This is an open forum..... this is where the action should be questioned.
I don't know or understand what the undertone is relating to this post.
But on face value, I very much enjoyed that first thread. I thought it to be very timely for today's society. I also didn't see anything pointed or malicious in it. The personal stories told of "Heros" were fantastic. (I could recollect a few personal heros growing up). Also it was great counterpoint to the usual topics of hooks, feathers & travel.

I just don't understand why it was moderated.
?????????????????????????????????????????????????? ????????????????????

Sorry if this ruffles the feathers again ..... but "my" heros taught me to question authority. (70's kid)

Steve cause this is where that thread was going:

"Since when did a welfare cheating, drug dealing, child pimping, piece of garbage`s feelings become more important than the truth and the right to speak it?"

Being young I too can understand Sean's probelms with that post. I got a feeling of us younger folks being singled out.

I do not think John meant it to be taken as it was by some but the way the thread was going was turing into a flame fest and it had nothing to do with fishing. I was glad to see it go.

Just my 2cents.

Juro,

More work for the mods? Seems like a weak argument all around to me.

It should have just been moved to the Open Forum . I really enjoyed that thread and reminded me to toast my grandfather, a WWII vet, who is no longer with us as of a few months ago.

It is a shame you guys just don't get it how this drives people away from your "magic" site.

With all due respect, it's not me who doesn't get it. I will copy and paste the entire thread to you privately. If you care to set things right, please make an appropriate comment to the group after you read it all.

regards,
Juro

What makes you think anyone has a right to free speech on a non-government run or backed board? Private boards = private rules. To the best of my knowledge, that is what the U.S. Constitution provides.
