Re: The Ongoing Slanging Match - NOT KITESURFING
- Whoa !! This Cully dude really has a problem!
Not because he does not like some of the posts,but because he
believes that half of everyone else feels like him!
What a boring person !
What a boring World he wants us all to live in!
Because he doesn't like what some people say,he believes they should
not say it !
Hey,Cully,its quite easy to start a forum,the instructions are at the
top of the page.Why don't you start your own little
moderated,sanitary,censored forum? You could take all the other
boring,self righteous anal retentives with you. You should be able to
get plenty of members.About four,at least !

the ARC guys started an ARC group and it is outstanding. No flames,
no hostility, all good fun and info. ( EXCEPT FOR A BRIEF VISIT BY A
RETAILER DOWN UNDER! ) Some folks like the censorship you
describe. Not me. Regardless how I disagree, i feel like everyone
has the freedom of speech. I belong to 5 different groups. This is
where you go to get flamed!
