i'm shocked

well some how i got banned from the Shop Forum too. i can only assume it was something i said to describe the tone of another post which i believed to be derogatory toward the other posters of the thread (i was not among them until my apparent infraction). i was very careful not to attack him.....only his post.

i must assume, then, that i was part of the problem. I've read many of these threads since the original sinners against the "coventant" were banned.

i'm not, what some would say, of the same political denomination as the primary offenders. i'm not sure if that puts light on the mystery. oh well, asi es la vida....

I'm nonplussed. I'd offer some pithy responses, but apathy hath overtaken me to the point of crippling ennui.

I had a post removed from the very same thread. Oh well, if you were banned you must be very, very bad. [:D]

Banned from the shop = welcome here. Political leanings be damned.

RE: i'm shocked

i should have been prepared for the possibility of being banned from a forum that would, for no apparent reason, delete the Martin Luther King thread when they deleted the political threads.

if memory serves, the MLK thread was honoring the civil rights movement and the sacrifices of the participants. how is that contraversial?

well, thanks for the welcome guys/gals. i'll most likely lurk for a while before posting stuff. -AZ-

RE: i'm shocked

Well, I'll admit I thought you were jes commin over here to taunt us exiled morons, but your story appears to check out. Strange policy over there. Can't quite explain it. Despite popular fallacy, there is no singular political denomination around here, so post away if you like. Tain't no one gonna stop ya.

Perhaps they're going for sheer body count.
