Bart we have had this conversation over and over before.....


So here i go... again.


Without wanting to sound rude.... but you seem to have a problem. Everytime someone criticizes US foreign policy..... you take it to mean that we are bashing Americans... and bashing YOU personally.... Using this logic.... any American citizen who hates Bush is also "un-patriotic"....


Sorry to inform you... but YOUR government is not the population.....


In similiar fashion... anyone who criticizes the Australian government does not mean they are anti- Australian.... In fact.. i support any criticism of it.


It is EVERYONES RIGHT to be critical of their elected officials.....


Next point i want to get across.....


...Again.. Thunderdome was made to discuss "other" topics...... Unfortunately the discussion turns to stupidity.. and instead of "discussion", there are the usual rants about "wiping out" a certain race or religion as its deemed to be... inhuman.


Define the enemy as animals.... so that we may define ourselves as human....


Sorry... but since several of those posts inferred a "jihad" against... the so-called "enemy"... This makes the poster no better then they are....


Lowering yourself to their standand means your no better then they are....


As has been said.. over and over and over.... I dont care who you are......any references to inciting violence... hatred ... etc... will be deleted... end of story.


Inciting hatred in this country is illegal..... this includes WEB PAGES.


If you seem to think i am picking on "Americans" then your sadly mistaken... I am deleting posts which DO NOT BELONG HERE....


Keep the abusive language up... and guess what will happen....???


Its not just your posts i was referring too either Bart..... since you seem to take it personally. But i have deleted other peoples post too you know....


This goes for everyone one here....


We are 100% snafu....

Sam,you got a BAAAAAD case of 'MOD GOD'fever.Your especially full of piss and vinegar becuase you just got back from the Easternats .I've seen in the past where one dig at Bush turned into a huge Anti American bash on here.I dislike Bush as well and feel he's done a sorry ass job as The United States President.Theres much more to the war than Bush's future oil deals,Theres many other countries who have thier icky hands in the cookie jar called 'Iraq' as well.And as for ...and guess what will happen,Unless I get an email to tone down from Peter Barton himself I don't see how you can ban people on here.So don't 'threaten me'Also its no secret you dislike Americans but hey thats your right to.

Hey Bart did you notice that after Sammy threatened to cut off our heads he peppered his response with his own "political" opinions? I think he bashed America. again.


I think he tried to put other words, his own, into our mouths.


I think we should forgive him. And he us.


Thunderdome will never be the same.

RWMFP, I understand your point about discussing, but what crosses the line of "discussion"? I agree about inciting hatred, a post saying "Kill Muslims, Sign Up Here" would be wrong, but if someone posted something like "I hate Muslims, they should all be killed", why not treat it as an opinion and give others a chance to challenge it? "Okay, back up your opinion that they should be killed, any more than any other nutty religious group should be killed". "Thunderdome" in Max 3 was an anarchic free for all, shouldn't its namesake be the same? If it's Peter's wish not to cross any lines on the entire site, that's the final word, but if he's open to negotiation, how about approaching him with this idea: have the "General" board be for both Max and non-Max related general conversation, no offensive material or comments whatsoever, and "Thunderdome" can be the no-holds-barred, let's step outside, check your feelings at the door and pick up your brass knuckles talk....put a strong warning on the tag under the "Thunderdome" board title to warn the easily offended, and stress that the opinions offered are only those of the posters themselves. And when it degenerates into stupidity, I believe most members just pass on it, and it dies. The arseholes make themselves known, and they get short play here. Also, I loved the pics and tales from Easternats, just didn't feel any need to post anything on the threads, so don't take lack of posts on a thread as ho-hum, honest Image.


Dave, I would add one condition to your scenario: the "country" of the USA is actually the Northern Americans and the Southern Americans, who hate each other. But a foreign power has deemed the USA one country, so the two must get along. And I hope, when you say, "The Americans think that's okay", you mean our politicians, who, with few exceptions, are craven scumbags at best' and our less-informed citizenry. Rest assured, not all of us want to rule the world, we know we have enough crap right here on our own porch.


Bart, I agree with you (in your response to Dave). That's kind of what I meant earlier in the thread, when I said we're all full of crap. There's lots of stuff we could be working on, if our pols really cared about people.

""Unless I get an email to tone down from Peter Barton himself I don't see how you can ban people on here."""


Well Bart.... Its this simple..... Doug and I are the Mods... Peter made us the mods.... we represent the owner of the message board...... You will never get an email from him... as WE... Doug and myself are here to do it for HIM....


This is the concept of having Moderators.....


Redd4 As was siad before..... discuss whatever you like..... post how much you hate what ever race or religion.... however that line WAS crossed AGAIN when the posters started chanting for the deaths of a certain group of people.....


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It is this simple.... If people dont like to adhere to the rules.... They can go and start their own forum....... and waste their own time and money.


Since obviously a few people seem to think its a free for all..... and no-one gives the owner of the website any consideration.... or credit for setting this up for the fans.


We are 100% snafu....

No before you can BAN someone on here you must discuss it with the H.N.I.C which is Peter Barton.Also since DOUG is ALSO a mod it must be a UNANIMOUS decision.So we'll NEVER get an email from Peter eh?and if DOUG TOO is a mod,how come he's not trying to stomp a mudhole in my ASS like YOUR doing Sam? is THIS how its going to be??I've been on here 6 godamned years plus I too was a member on Petes other forums as well.and you'd up and BAN me for speaking my mind??While I agree that some of my rhetoric is a bit salty but jeezus ,thats no call for threatening to BAN me.So now we must 'Tip Toe' & 'walk on eggshells'around here now becuase what we say may get us banned??Thunderdome is a FREE FOR ALL.one persons opinion is like ones cornshoot,EVEYONE HAS ONE,unless they were born deformed or had a horrible accident involving fireworks being put where they shouldn't be.

There you go again Bart....


Please cut and paste where i siad anyone was going to ban YOU....


And for your information.. I have spoken to Doug online.... and... shock horror.. in person too..... And oddly enough.. he agreed .


Thunderdome IS NOT a free for all.... The one simple rule is no inciting hatred.... or calling for the death of someone.....


This is A SIMPLE RULE........


If your too bored with the forum Bart... and feel the need to have this same conversation over and over every 12months or so.... then people do begin to wonder dont they....


There is no more to discuss on this topic.....


Learn to deal with it..... its that simple.
