  • free-speech weekend has ended

    (with a bonus of an extra half-day thrown in today)

    That forum is now closed for another year.

    Serious thanks to everyone who participated. We had some very good, adult conversations, with only one yahoo earning a ban.

    Wow! He must have been really, really bad! I missed FSW, up in the mountains backpacking.

      It was quite as gh said. Very good discussions, generally quite civil.

        Have you moved any of those threads into Things not Track and Field?

          Polevaultpower's breastfeeding thread has been moved there.

            4-5 threads got transferred I believe (including one which lasted not very long before being bounced back).

              Wouldn't it be funny if our country was run this way? ''Free-speech weekend'' :roll: We'd be communists. :lol:

                Ironic that this forum exists only during a busy part of the summer, rather than doldrums of fall and winter. Could have it during Thanksgiving (thanks for Free Speech?) and relieve some of the ennui of the off-season!

                  Not to mention roast turkey, my least favorite popular meal :twisted:

                    I missed what yahoo was bounced but, despite my unintentional more than customary involvement, I am glad this destructive forum is over for another year. Even civil discourse leaves a lingering negative effect... If this is supposed to be a non-political, non-religious forum, it should be a non-political, non-religious forum.

                        You have it all wrong. I think lonewolf is now rueing the fact that he 'knows' you again. :wink:

                        edit: Ah wait, I see your 8-) - icon, I almost missed that nuance. So now you're just trying to kiss up? :mrgreen:

                          If you have ever had the pleasure of meeting this crotchety old . . . er . . . sweet middle-aged man, as I have, you'd want to stay on his good side too. He has swag! He randomly gave me one of his Tex Rlys Officials polo. I wear it all the time!!!

                            At the risk of stepping over the politics line, I must observe that communists have no monopoly on the governmental repression of free speech.

                              Sweet, yes, middle aged only in the eyes of the 160 year olds among us. :?
                              That shirt must be getting threadbare. I will bring a replacement next time our paths cross..
                              You can frame that one for your classroom wall, next to the picture of GW Bush.
