Color me gone

Folks, I went ahead and re-opened this thread. With the absence of OTDE, I understand that y'all were just venting and y'all were doing it in a reasonable and civilized manner. I thought it was quite constructive as well and could give the new owners a feel for what you want. Just realize this is not a free ticket to attack this forum. Keep the spirit of the thread going if you wish.

And I want to personally thank the folks that defended my actions and said nice things about me. And I want to personally thank every single poster in this thread for keeping it civil and constructive.

As Keith said in a different thread, our NUMBER ONE reason for starting this forum was because of the OVERmoderation of T&T. *As you could imagine, Marin and I can talk ad nasueum(Moarin more nauseum than I...j/k Marin) about aviation and sometimes we did and we would get our knuckles whacked with a ruler.

*And for the record, I did not mischieviously try to change anybody's words. *That was not the intent or the issue. *What Carey wrote was degrading to the site and instead of just deleting it, I thought I would have a little fun and thought Carey might have a sense of humor. *He obviously didn't when it came to this. *I likely could have just deleted it and not said anything and nobody would have known. *But it has always been my policy that if I delete something to PM the poster and let them know why so we don't have recurring issues.

That's all I got!

As you were,

John

Mee too, Cary. I've gotten a lot of value out of your postings. Can't you just kick the cat and stay? Works for me every time.

Well, some (including myself) consider that word to be offensive.* You should be able to express yourself without using offensive words.

As for the forum moderators "censoring" posts, they own*the forum or are designated by the owners to moderate it.* They have a right to decide what can be posted and what cannot, just as*anyone else has the right to decide what can be said and done in their own homes.* Anyone who doesn't like the conditions on being a member and posting can and should take their thoughts elsewhere.*

RE: Color me gone

OK, OK, OK!!! - - > SO LET'S GET TO THE POINT... To All Of This Thread; And, To Other Threads Since OTDE Was Closed!

Is OTDE Going to Reopen? OR, Is it Not?

If So... When?

I ask these pertinent, needing to be answered questions... because:

It appears clearly obvious that many contributors (btw, you can see how low key I and others have remained during OTDEs hopefully temporary vacation) to this forum, myself included, seek to have access to a seldom (if ever and only for unusual*needs) monitored OTDE section.* For those with the desire/gutspa to frequent and/or post intelligent copy in OTDE... more power to them.* For those who do not appreciate conversations, threads, posts, debates, arguments, i.e. general circumstances that develop inside OTDE - - > then Simply Stay Out and enjoy the rest of TF.* It is just that simple!* I like other TF sections too, and do not bleed OTDE topics into the other sections.* So, I will be in and out of OTDE as I expect most if not all other OTDE contributors will also.

Being that OTDE circumstances have been well hashed over, and, that we are intelligent, seafaring adults... I herein make a motion to reopen OTDE!* Who seconds me?* And, who thirds, fourths, and fifths this motion?* *
Please Open OTDE - - > Thank You, Art

*I don't really care one way or the other about the OTDE section BUT...how can you be a proponent of such a thread topic yet say something so incongruous? *Seems to go completely against OTDE's intent and the vociferous argument here of its unmonitored status.

Seriously????? the WORD Nazi is now offensive???

Not "now", *it always has been.* I had friends who were the only ones in their families to excape the Nazis in Germany in WW II.* Ask them if it's offensive.

Just so you know -

I was banned at the new owners site -Cruisers Forum - for a post that consisted of the single sentence -

"Wow! That was fast!"

It was in response to a mod changing a post not made by me, in a thread I had not posted in. I was just comenting on how quick the mods were.

Twitchy trigger fingers. See if this survives.

Hey,careful with the Nazi stuff, my grandfather was killed at one of the concentration camps. He got drunk and fell off the guard tower. Lets see how funny this is. Open OTDE and keep this stuff where it belongs, we all need a place to vent with our boating Buds, agreeing to disagree.BB

I guess we could joke about lynchings too.* Probably no black people on here.* Who else can we be insensitive to?* How ignorant can we get?

Read OTDE, a few minutes perusing almost any thread will pretty much answer your question.
