It seems that my last blog on gay marriage wasn't closed because a flame war was developing, like my first one.

People started talking about how religion was impacting this issue, and then the topic was closed!

It appears that the topic was closed just for discussing touchy subjects!

I don't think we were getting violent, and last I checked the internet has free speech. We weren't insulting anyone, so why was the topic closed?

I understand why my first blog on gay marriage was closed because it had turned into a nuclear flamewar... but there was no reason for this one to be closed.

Do one of the mods here have something against gays and/or discussing religous topics? Whatever the reason, please explain why you closed the topic!

Does that not teach you a lesson? Stop making racist and homophobic threads. Create one more and you better bet your ass that I'll be there to report it.

You, chrisman01, are officially added to my shitlist.txt on my desktop.

Last I checked this was a private forum and the owners have the right to control what content they want on it.

So it's his fault people on this forum can't keep a discussion civil?

Veho, bro. It's his fault for creating a topic that was bound to be a flamewar in the first place. When it comes to religion, and sexual orinatations, you should know not to post it on a public forum with 200,000+ members of all religions and sexual orientations.

Well aren't we all human, at least the conversation a lot more open-minded then that rich Scientology actor who didn't want to explain about some bullshit that Xenu a internation galactic alien put humans inside volcanoes before the earth was formed!

Hmm lets see.

Make thread that start a massive flame war, mod closes thread and asks you not to make another.

You make a second thread.

Mod closes second thread as you didn't respect his wishes.

You make a third thread asking why the second was closed.

.......infinity?

No mods said ANYTHING. I just logged in and saw the thread was gone.

Same thing for the second thread. No mods said anything to me, no mods warned me, nothing.

The second one didn't develop into a flamewar, most people that posted were actually keeping it civil! Strange but true!

-------

Also, how am I being a drama queen if I just want to know what happened?

WHY do you hate me? You always slam me in the threads I start, but I have never done anything to provoke you, at least not intentionally.

If I did somehow provoke you, I'm sorry. I'm just researching public opinion on current issues, so I am NOT trying to attack ANYONE here!

I'm just saying that it's pathetic that a handful of touchy pissy trolls can ruin any possibility of ever having a normal discussion on certain subjects, and that that handful of trolls holds the rest of the forum by the scrotum.

I give Veho +1 for this one, its very rare you can find controversial topics without a flamewar. Usually the flamewar starts when a strong dislike towards something becomes a goal. Then back and forth, rabble rabble rabble rabble...

Funny this original post by the mod answers all your questions.

"Because many of you lack the ability to post anything constructive I've hidden all (3 pages worth of) posts made here and locked this thread. Sorry for the others but it's the easiest way of stopping this getting out of control. I ask that the OP doesn't re-open this thread."

And Brian117, just because you are offended by it and feel the need to jam report every time you see something potentially homophobic doesn't mean the world has to go by your wishes. If you don't like the threads, kindly STFU and let others discuss.

When the mod did that, I did not recieve any notification or anything.

In fact, the thread had completely vanished from my profile page, thus I thought the thread had been completely deleted...

sorry Dice, if I had received some sort of notification, message, something, I wouldn't have made a new thread...

Well Dice's reply was not exactly hard to spot, considering your second thread was directly above your first.

Maybe next time you should consider just PMing a member of staff when something like this happens for an explanation, threads aren't just shut down for no reason. And it helps to avoid all this sort of nonsense.

I'm sorry, but that thread wouldn't of gone far by any means. You got to admit that at least. It was full of homophobic Jamaican people saying they are a "gay hating country" and all Gays should die. You call that normal discussion?

I am only offended by the people who make the posts saying all Gays should die, burn, not get married, turn straight, should not adopt, etc.

And even if I don't like the threads, I have the right to post what I want to defend it. You think I wanted to read all the nasty comments on the first thread? Of course not.
