I love the \"freedom of speech\" argument. Hey, buddy, what happens on this site is up to the descretion of the owners. You have the freedom to either post and suffer the consequences or walk away. They have the right, as owners, to edit ignorance on their site. It\'s just that easy. Like if you were to walk up into my business and start spouting off about the Falcons. Yeah, you have the right to speech, but don\'t question why I kick your ass to the curb afterwards.

Haven\'t I heard this somewhere before?

There\'s a slight difference in the argument made here and the argument you\'re referring to.

The argument here is that a person should have the right to say whatever he wants on this board. The defense is easy - this is privately owned and operated, and the content can be controlled by the moderators empowered by the owners.

The argument you refer to was more along the lines of, I\'m a moderator and thus free to make comments about you (and other people). If you don\'t like it, leave.

In the second case, the individual moderator is breaching the generally accepted rules of the board promulgated by the owners and moderators in unison. He is in essence operating with imunity b/c of his title where other \'normal\' members are held to a higher standard. Ultimately, the owner can allow whatever he wants. Still, there\'s a difference b/w banning certain content outright to support the purpose of the site, and allowing one moderator to operate with imunity in ways that violate the spirit of the rules.

Does that clear things up for you?

Not at all. What seems to have your panties in a wad is that I think you have an agenda. I have thought that (and stated that) for nearly three years...and WELL before I became a Moderator. You and Gator use the Moderator argument as a means to an end -- but it\'s failed miserably, and, based on YOUR recent comments as a \"Moderator\" (among one\'s made prior to that time) I suspect it will continue to fail mostly because you and Gator have done as much and likely more of what you accuse me of than nearly anyone else here. I don\'t call you names or attack you in the same manner that you and those you support attack me. I have the right to say you have an agenda...period. Once again you miss the WHOLE point while you try and focus on ME.

Again, your buddies (and you) are every bit as guilty (and in some cases even more so) of everything you have accused me of and yet you fail to mention them...to you this is all about me. Looks like you\'ll just have to get on over it I guess.

This is Gator\'s little band wagon that he slowed down long enough for you to jump on. You accuse me of \"personal attacks\" right? Lets see...in the last week you have accused me of being \"Brooks\' Lover\" and have called me \"Casper\" on numerous occasions. Is this what you consider to be acceptable behavior from a MODERATOR?

Now, in the same time frame have I called you any names? No. Have I said one word about you being anyone\'s \"lover\"? No. Have I accused you of having an agenda? You BETCHA! I\'m I allowed to do that, moderator or not? Uh Huh. Is name calling against the rules. Why, yes sir it is.

I accuse you of having at least ONE agenda, but likely more than that lately. That\'s allowed much to your dismay; however, technically, the \"lover\" and \"Casper\" comments you\'ve made recently are not. I see it all in good fun -- and always have -- you seem to have a real problem. I say oh well. If you don\'t want your statements commented on better not post \'em.

Ah, I see your angle here. OK. Two can play. I guess I can\'t call you an idiot, but I CAN say that you really don\'t know anything about anything. I can\'t say that YOU are stupid, but I can say that everything you said in your post is stupid. I can\'t call you a liar, but I can saying you\'re lying. That\'s the way we want to play it? OK, fair enough.

You can make any assumptions you want. If you think your opinion really matters that much then go right ahead. If, on the other hand you and Gator want this place to be steril then start another one of your little polls. Do you deny making the \"lover\" comment or the \"casper\" comment? Funny how you skirt that. You\'ve BEEN skirting that for a few days now. You have accused me, time and again, long ago and recently, of having said things I haven\'t said. There is a recent thread where you made such statements where I\'m still waiting on a response -- for you to prove what you say is true -- but you\'ve skirted that one too. Typical.

Based on your recent attacks on me you are already quite familiar with the rules -- you just wanted them to apply ONLY to me. 08 has a history of takin pot shots at me as I do to him, yet you seem to only want to acknowledge my posts. Gator has a history of flaming people -- even got banned for it -- and yet I have NEVER seen you call him on it. In fact, you defend both of the afore mentioned posters regularly. This is hypocritical don\'t you think?

You and BlandandBlue spar regularly with comments about being gay and sisters and such. Do I step in? No. I spar regularly with 08 and you are there at every turn -- especially lately. Why? I say the \"why\" is your most recent agenda...and I\'d bet I\'m right.

See, it\'s not just my comments where YOU are concerned, but it\'s my comments where 08, Gator, and others are concerned. In the last month you have, all of a sudden, become the protector of what you, on one hand, call fair play, and, on the other hand, do yourself.

Hypocritical to be sure.

Not at all. In fact, I told you I was going to do it before I did it. I argued with you and tried to make your actions clear to you. You denied it. So I told you that I would act towards you the same way that you act towards Gator, 08, and myself. I\'m not trying to sanction you, I\'m trying to hold you to the same standard everyone else is held to. You didn\'t want to do that, so I treat you the same way you treat a few of us. You\'re right that my comments are directed at you. You\'re right that they\'re attacks - how do you like it?

In any case, say whatever you want. I\'m just not going to let your TRANSPARENT arguments and uneducated or uninformed attacks go unchecked. Happy posting.

Then by all means continue to break the rules you whine so much about, and I\'ll grin from ear to ear each and every time I am provided with an oppurtunity to edit your posts.

Maybe after a while we can count the number of edits and see who wins. Wanna? I\'m already up 2-0.
