A slightly more appropriate place for the individual wanting a link showing the FBI considered cash purchases being a suspicious activity.

Finally found a reliable lame stream link.

Another place that struck us as odd to be on an FBI watch list, a tattoo shop.

"We see our share of the unusual," said Jim Lockhart.

Lockhart admits his Inksters Tattoo in North Palm Beach is a place with some odd customers, but not necessarily terrorists.

"The things that they have on their watch list like, people coming in to spend cash. We are primarily a cash business. Changing of apperances. We do work with the fettish community and a change of appearance happens all the time anyways," said Lockhart.

Popped into the thread to see how it was going. I was about to type "What a bunch of children," but then realized that it would be an insult to children everywhere.

All of you: Quit justifying being a jerk with your 'You're not the boss of ME' and similar.

You disgust me, the bunch of you. No wonder the parliamentary system is so screwed up if this is the type of people they're trying to govern. No wonder our children look at the adults around them with disgust.

Around and around and around, never going anywhere, just the same crap.

I'd say 'GROW UP', but obviously it isn't a case of developmental delay, but just a case of 'ignoramus terminus'.

I'm terminating my relationship with this forum: it embarrasses me to be seen in this company.

I think in keeping with the Mayors wishes posters should not call other members demeaning names. It is against the agreed policy of Ehmac when members sign up.

I believe many of the posts, posted today Saturday May 5th, are inappropriate and do not belong in this thread. They derailed a discussion of politics with a discussion of names, political correctness and censorship. I feel they belong in another thread where people are going around and around about names and such; "Why do people disrespect names of individuals?"

I shall not resort to demeaning comments of that thread. I have my opinions on some of the motives of the posters in that thread, but shall remain silent for the present, but that's just me.

To me, this illustrates why I don't think members should directly hold other members accountable... it would work if people responded by saying "Sorry, my bad" and fixing the issue and carrying on, but it doesn't work that way. People start justifying their choices and it turns into an on-thread argument that (possibly) creates more animosity than it reduces.

Better IMO to take the issue to a moderator and have them deal with it, because it avoids this.

And no, I do not consider it censorship... this is a privately owned website, whose owner can decide whatever he likes. After all, curse words are changed to ****s around here as it is, and I haven't heard anyone scream censorship over that. From what I've seen, everyone here is competent enough in their use of language to adequately express disrespect without using silly names or nicknames.

But on a side note, every time I see someone use OGL I keep thinking of the OLG (Ontario Lottery and Gaming commission) which confuses me every time. (You'd think I'd learn.)

Provided the mods exercise impartiality, keep their enforcement to the ehMac rules of conduct and keep their personal biases of subject or poster out of it.

Well yes. But I'm willing to trust the moderators to do so. And if something goes badly I'm also willing to trust the moderators to own up and make amends.

You're assuming that statement to be obvious, but in my experience that is seldom the case.

Also...a lot of times I have a hard time keeping up with youz...it would have to be some mod's full time job to keep some of you in line.

I've definitely been on forums where that's not the case. And hey, I got sick of it and stopped going there along with a whole bunch of other people.

I don't expect perfection, but if things seem at least reasonable, I'm okay. In any case, I haven't exactly found ehMax to be a tyrant.

As for full-time job, that's why I think a system that's user-reported, but mod-enforced might work.... though automating a few things like changing 'Fiberal' to 'Liberal' and 'Harpo' to 'Harper' might help.

Anyway, I'll also stop derailing this thread now.
