This is a thread dedicated to all that have been blocked but wish to respond to comments in a thread that they cannot post on. The process is very simple. Indicate the thread title on which you have been blocked and then post your comment. Since I have never, ever blocked anyone all lumberjocks are free to use this portal to freedom of speech. Spelling errors are ok and never commented on by me.

I’m guessing the last thread was closed because of some of my wording. This is a cleaned up version of the previous thread.

DKV,

Have you ever asked anyone to leave your house because you didn’t like what they said?

Have you walked away from someone at a party that had a foul mouth (A hand plane term)?

Not gone back to someone’s house that you couldn’t get a long with?

In all of those cases you have a way to not hear things you dislike, you are blocking them. Why can’t we do that here?

I think this is a sillier post than normal for you. This website is like someone’s house, they get to set the rules, not you. Would you like people coming to your house and telling you what to do or how to live? I suspect your would find a way to not have to hear them if you didn’t like the message.

Very property rights minded on this one Rob. I fully agree.
(yes, haha, that is a philosophical jab since you seem to despise Anarcho-Capitalists yet you sound just like one.)
Good Lord, we have to laugh at each other.
I dont think i have been blocked yet. Theres always hope.

Despise is too strong, I find it to be naive. No offence meant! I believe in single payer health care and that is a utopian dream at this point as well.

Maybe we should turn this into a “Banned Topics” thread. Just saying. Ridged, grammar, SS. there was another that got locked out. Heading of the thread “Only thick skinned may enter”, or the same written in Latin for a bit of Dante flare.

SirIrb, your command of the English language is quite refreshing. Keep it up. Maybe the fuss budgets will self destruct.
I was blocked once by mistake. Contacted the blocker and got it fixed ‘cause I’d never blasted him. He apologized. All is well.

Ahem, Dante spoke Italian. In fact he is credited with formalizing what is now Italian. That is according to my Italian teache. Cosa significativa? Me no know.

The members of this community have the option to block members. We are not going to bypass that feature by creating threads to rehash it all. Thank you for understanding.
