Hey, you're right. When I do give my digs, they are subtle. As opposed to the pure venom that is far too often tolerated by the mods here.
However I truly believe that Scott is an intelligent people, and I would appreciate that he put some water in hiw wine.
I have read several Scott's comments about the frenchs this last time, totally out of context, and I am getting fed up with them.
And I am almost sure that you would tell someone who is PERSONALLY fed up with someone on a personal level to take it to personal messages.
If my comment offended Scott, I am sorry and I apologize in advance, but I a m tired about this french baiting.
Sure and some of us are tired of personal insults from a multitude of people on here. If I had a dime for every personal insult I got from Shawn, giant, faust, bunge and a few others, I would be as rich as giant claims to be. (See.. subtle...)
Normaly I don't like to discuss with other people of members, but your comment Trumptam obliged to do so.
Now for the conservative persecution, that's your own opinion and you are entitled of it. Let's just say that we think here otherwise, and your victimhood whin will not give you a special status.
It's not an opinion. It is factual. It is almost impossible to get a thread on a liberal topic locked on here. Even when they clearly have started off with nothing but an attempt to bait and insult.
This is every thread started and locked in PO.
Let me show you a flipflop - SDW2001
Our Jewish Media Lies to Us - Hassan
Ali Dashti: Re Irshad Manji - Ghost Killa
Both Parties Suck - Fellowship
Bush has a magic time machine - Trumptman
Pick a Candidate - Trumptman
Bikes Against Bush - xterra48
Prevention without preemption - NaplesX
Now I would toss out Hassan and Ghost Killa from being representitive of either side since I believe those threads basically both revolve around Mika and either baiting him to come out, or him revealing who he is to others.
Other than that we have locked threads by SDW2001, myself, and NaplesX. Fellowship's thread was locked when people went nuts over him saying he was going to vote for Bush. So it started out neutral but when he showed some conservatism, it ended up locked.
I would consider xterra's thread a legitimate left leaning thread that was locked.
By my math that shows 5:1 on conservative threads being locked to liberal ones. BTW, this ratio is much better than it was in AO. There it was even worse. When we do as Faust asks and compare the sample in reference to the actual percentages of people who are libeal and conservative here it just becomes ridiculous. I mean most liberal vs. conservative polls here show up as about 80% liberal and about 20% conservative. So being one fifth of the population, we end up with 500% more threads locked? If it were representative, it would be about 20 liberal threads locked for every five conservative, instead it is ONE.
So no, it isn't just my imagination.
