I realise that my language was not the best in my first post, but I do not think it's fair to remove it, or the next one.

Why have my post been censored, while those who only preach negativity are allowed to remain.

Strapped For Cash is, and has been a very helpful, informative, and friendly forum member to myself, and many others, and I feel he has been almost bullied into leaving the forum, by antagonistic and negative posting my certain members. 

I did hope he would refrain from entering into debates, which were only posted to bait him, but unfortunately his views are so strongly held, he could not resist.

I'm upset that this has been allowed to happen by WHF, as it was obvious to me that the thread started by Cloverleaf was a deliberate attempt to provoke Strapped.

Though I do not agree with all of Strapped's political views, I respect him as person, and support him as a decent human being, 

I too do not wish to contribute to a forum that allows decent people to be provoked and baited in such a way.

WHF, you have my permission to forward my email address to Strapped for Cash. Strapped, please keep in touch.

And to gel, Ben, BB and others, it's been nice talking to you, and thanks for the help.

[note from mods - your post was unpublished for severe profanity; no need for that, whatever the provocation. Thread has been locked and statement clearly made re starting threads of this nature. Now, who wants to discuss music or movies instead, hey? Hope to see you back soon]

Include TVs in that, and strapped and BBB would be a good answer. Whereas everybody's favourite lucky charm persistently posts merely to antagonise. I sympathise with the mods as I know you don't wish to or be seen to stifle debate, but I agree with BBB that the OP of that thread had one purpose, and the comment it attracted made a pretty poor advert for anyone stumbling across WHF. It is a sad day when cloverleaf, who deserves all the profanity that I can imagine, continues to post here, whilst strapped and BBB do not.

 

Anyway, would the mods mind passing my email address to both BBB and strapped please in order that if they wish to they can get in touch with me. I for one would like to hear how their TV travails progress over the next few months.

Censorship is always sinister.

You know who you are. Shame.

RE: Strapped For Cash

Life's too short for petty fights. The main purpose of the forum is to discuss AV & Hi Fi, so I don't know why should Strapped or BBB quit the forum in protest. This isn't a political platform. Quitting in protest for actives or cables is more understandable.  Wink

Don't go BBB, I'm sure the member in question won't be around for much longer if he continues down the same route.  Cheers for the help and advice and chats if this is it.  I am Thegelman on AVForums it would be good to stay in touch with you and Strapped.  You just do a search for my name and can contact me through being a member.

 

Cheers Gel.

I always thought that a majority of posters on this site were grown adults, but it appears not. It's like a bunch of kids throwing their toys about just because they can't tolerate others point of views. You may not like what Cloverleaf and others said but they are entitled to a point of view. All of the foul language was posted by the so called do gooders who have quit the site, well good riddance if you can't tolerate all points of view. Besides you didn't have to get involved in the thread at all did you.

Why should anybody have to tolerate intolerance? Your entire viewpoint is based on not tolerating the views and lifestyles of others and yet you think your right to be heard should be respected over and above everyone elses (if this is not your actual viewpoint then I apologise, but you're defending Cloverleaf and his side of the argument so I'm making an assumption you agree with him).

This. With bells.

I agree with every word SFC wrote in his last post, and congratulate him on his patience. Had I kept mine, however, it would have made no difference; when a bigot is right, they are right.
