For All Those Who Don't Like Political Debate

If you don't like political discussion, and don't want to get involved in them, I have a suggestion for you: DON'T! And don't go posturing to the rest of us to shut up, and stop discussing political subjects.

The beauty of this forum, is you can pick and choose what you want to discuss. But it's pointless and childless to tell the rest of us, no matter what our political tendancies, to cease and desist. As long as we remain within forum rules, anything can be discussed.

So again, if you don't want to discuss politics, that's great, but please, don't tell the rest of us we can't. Thank you.

Ok F-A-L-C-O-N,

you want to discuss politics, that's just fine. But dont discuss them in a thread that specifically asks NOT to discuss politics.

Respect others opinions, then others will respect yours.

DLKAPA:

Perhaps you should become a Paying First Class Member as Falcon84 before you can tell other people what NOT to discuss on this board.

I am a non-paying member as yourself, but I don't go around telling other people what should and what shouldn't be discussed.

Just my 2 cents...

Oooh you don't have a real argument so you have to go against the college kid who can't afford a first class membership. Wow you sure showed your maturity with that one. btw in case you didn't know, I PAID 25 bucks to get this username, so the argument that I'm on as a freebie is out the door too.

Falcon84 is 100% right in my book. People need to learn that the Internet is about sharing information, not about censoring information.

Hey Falcon. If people don't like political debates, who ar you to tell them to get over it? Come on now.

Hey KROC, I'm not telling them to get over anything, only that if they do not want to enter into political debate, they should just stay away from said threads. That's not dictating to them what they do on here, merely common sense. DLKAPA was outright suggesting that no one talk politics, and that's dictating to the rest of us what we should do.

Again, there are a myriad of threads on here that do not deal with politics. Pick something out from those you like, and run with it, but please do not tell the rest of us to stop discussing politics.

Unfortunately, many threads that have nothing to do with politics get hijacked and become political. Hell, you could post a thread about how you love chocolate-chip brownies and by reply #16, some froth-mouthed conservative is screaming something about the evils of Kerry and liberals.

For political topics, I agree. Fair game.

LHMark makes a great point Falcon. You're good buddy RSmith can't make a post anywhere withough spewing the evils of Bush, or B757300 about Kerry. A thread about Superman dying gets hijacked by RSmith. Come on now.

KROC, first don't suppose Rsmith is my "good buddy". I think he's a lunatic of the left surely as B757300 is a lunatic of the right. He takes things way over the line, which is why you never see me defend the guy. And I don't see any post of his on the Superman thread, so I assume it was deleted, and if he did what you say-of which I have no doubt he did-it was deleted and rightly so.

But if you're going to lump me in with him, I suggest you think twice about it. I'm not in his class.  Smile

Every now and then Falcon is right on. This message board is becoming just like the US (the United States of the Offended). The beauty of this media is that the user has the ultimate choice. If you don't like something don't read it.

If you oppose political discussions, don't click on threads that include the words, Bush, Cheney, Edwards, Kerry, or Iraq on them. Simple.

AA61Hvy also adds entertainment value to the site with descriptions of his homoerotic infatuation with KROC. They're like two lovers denying their forbidden love.

???? Where did I say that? I suspect you have some kind of inferiority complex due to you age, which I BTW did not check before I posted as I believe it is irrelevant.

"Wow you sure showed your maturity with that one"

I never intended to 'show my maturity' to you nor anyone else, kid.



Aa61hvy:

"Being a veteran member, I have just as much right to suggest something as someone who pays first class prices."

True, yet there is a slight difference between suggesting what not to talk about and openly calling for and end to all political debates on a.net.


N6376m:

"Schoenorama -

My remarks weren't aimed at AA61Hvy. I have no intention whatsoever to 'get involved' with AA61Hvy. I'll leave that to KROC  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Falcon,

Shut up. You post more than Scotty and don't really make any more sense than he does. Most of us paid money to be here so we can bitch about the moronic threads you beat off all over as much as we want. I hope you enjoyed the debate Friday, I was doing other things, as were many other people who are just sick of politics. I understand that you cream your jeans every time Bush messes up a word or Kerry tells us he won 3 purple hearts but can't you go vent about this crap somewhere else? probably 75% of the people actively reading this message board couldn't care less about the election.

Captoveur, it's amazing this obsession you have with me. I don't understand it, nor do I particularly care, but it's getting pretty obsessive.

And it's funny you, or anyone else, tells anyone else to shut up on here.

As for the rest of your childish thread, it doesn't even deserve to be commented on, although deletion of it might be in order. You've obviously got a problem with me, and guess what? I really don't care. I'll keep posting on here as often or as little as I want, and maybe I'll do it just to piss you off.

What's really funny is you say you're sick of politics, when you're one of the main flamers on the right. Does the word "hypocrite" sound about right?

Show me a political thread where I posted anything of any substance within say, the last month.

But, while we are discussing hypocracy.

http://www.airliners.net/discussions/non_aviation/read.main/633827/6/

Seriously man, it is 10am where you are and you are already spamming A.net. I am here because I am killing time before a class, you are here all day and all night every day. Don't you have a job? A family? A dog? Something?

Just shows the lack of maturity on your side of the fence, people speak out about being sick of hearing you preach from the soapbox and you tell them to shut up. I think telling the political cheerleaders to shut their pie-hole is free speech at its finest.

Faclon,

please do not tell the rest of us to stop discussing politics.

Crikey dude, did he hurt your feelings by doing that? You need to lighten up man. You're being hypocritical. If you don't want people to tell you what to post, then don't tell them the same thing, which is the way I see it in this thread. And for Christ's sake, if you don't want to hear it, just ignore it. It just sounds like you're being so whiny in this thread. I'm sure you're not like this in person...are you?
