Did MBShop buy this place out while we slept?

This is the only last join we can cuss, fart, and rip each other a new one freely. What the hell happened? When did the censorship start? Or did Carl Rove move in? MBWorld is almost as bad as MBShop. They ban people with a drop of the hat, and most guys there are under-aged self righteous conservative nut jobs who think being a Republican is some kind of status symbol.

Just to see what happens.
Why?

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

What's different? Have you been censored? If so, you may want to lodge a complaint with the management.

The contents of that thread have been worked into a new upcoming 'Hamsters for Dummies' book. The thread was removed in the interest of copyright protection. Fret not, the check is in the mail.

Actually there seems to be a lot of discussion devoted to controlling topics, decorum, and even diction lately. I am not sure if there is something being done and I am missing it, which could be the case as, or if there is a lot of whining about nothing going on, or if it is all aimed at new moderators or something else. But the subject of moderators and censorship seems to be right behind politics now. What gives? Jim

An OT mod asked some folks to tone it down a tad, and his request was met with a "lot of whining about nothing going on", as you say.
