I don't have strong feelings about BLM - be it the government bureau or the socio/political agenda.
I don't have strong feelings about mayonnaise.
I do have strong feelings about censorship. Cloud

Low tide, your statement about censorship is kind of funny here on the site it happens a lot. As in deleted posts bye the elite few who has problems seeing others views, and does not have the ability to digest the issues as stated, you do not have to agree but do not hide bye the delete button. just saying.

Yep. Censorship is rampant. That's what I was saying using less words so that some would not find my opinion offensive and flag it. I'd better get back to gluing glitter on sea shells before I offend someone. Catching dogfish at the point -life is good! Happy New Year! Cow

I know what you mean lowtide. In the good old days of this board, the regulars (and Will) would not have put up with the antics of some of the new members who think they own the board and wrote the TOS. The flagging feature was fine when left with trustworthy people and monitored for abuses. Now, it is a tool to silence those who the snowflakes disagree with.

Like society today, I guess it is too difficult for these to ignore and (figuratively) turn the page; they don't have the self control or maturity to do that, so they silence all differing views. They are obsessed with identifying, branding and deleting whoever they consider "trolls."
Pathetic. It will be the demise of this board.

It's usually J4yDubs, Lazslo, judyk, dandjw2, and Whaler9818. Send them a quick thank you note for keeping the board nice and tidy.

Nope, not me. I agree with izzymcgee. It was definitely fishing. Trolls are gonna troll...

But I do appreciate the thank you notes.

Nice and tidy as long as it reflects their views. Umbrella

For the record I have never used the flag. One of the tenents of my generation was freedom of speech.I have been in disagreements over the years about various issues on this board and for the most part they have been civil, adult, and educational. In some cases have made me reassess my position. Unfortunately over the years this board has gained a few newer members that believe it is acceptable to become rude, vulgar, personal, immature when they disagree. I don't flag them, I either ignore them or respond. But I don't blame others who do flag them.

I don’t know how I could have flagged a post that I just now read. Nor would I flag a thread about an upcoming beach trip, or one about fishing.
Much like Robert, it’s the posts that become personal or insulting, attacking a poster rather than discussing the topic that disturb me.

Saw a Duke's commercial last night in the Miami/OSU game. Tag line was "It's got Twang".

Oops! Crystal trophy slips off base during locker room celebration.

Happened at a golf tournament several years ago. Winner didn't know the trophy was two pieces. I think he caught it before it shattered.

Make you own mayo, not that difficult and you can flavor it with what ever you want, Dukes is o.k. no miracle whip if we buy mayo it is Hellman's. The dukes is like crispy cream and Piggly wiggly a southern thing. good but nothing worth bragging about.
