A funny thing happened on the way to FOO.....

Off topic chit chat? NO.....It is about more liberals snuffing out your opinions!
My posts,which were tame with no vulgarity or anger were moved to Politics and Religion.
SO, when I go there....what do you know...I AM NOT ALLOWED IN THERE.
Just responded to comments and linked a video and had an opinion.....
But some admin in their mom's basement feels like they have some authority and took my stuff down and moved it.
How about talking to me about it...........Oh wait, that is not the Democratic way.
Hope some people read this before it gets taken down........c'mon admins, let it ride for awhile to see what kind of feedback...
if you don't, then you might as well put your tail between your legs and walk away.

You can say ass.

You can't be a dick to the mods though. You're challenging them to a gun fight when you bought a butter knife. But I guess you knew that coming in to this, and we'll all watch the documentary about your last stand 20 years from now.

that can't be true, you can't get in there until some delay after you get an account. And the delay isn't a week.

You DO understand that this is a BIKE FORUM, meant for discussion about bicycles and bike related stuff.

Foo, P&R and some other places are just here for entertainment, and the mods can do any damn thing they like. This is a commercial site... your freedom to rant goes only as far as the mods are willing to put up with you.

You wanna yell at the world, rent a billboard, go on FB or twitter (oh, they have standards too), write your local paper.

But remember, this IS a bike forum first... anything else is gravy.

Have a nice day.

A democratic way on a forum? Pshaw.

Forums are private property and are ruled by their owners and agents. Take your freedom of speech dreams to city hall, the state capitol, or Washington D.C.

I love it when people come into FOO (my original stomping grounds) and slams my team...

You know.. two things..no three..

1. This is a cycling site
2. P and R is permission only and if you asked, you would be allowed since you qualify, just like all the others who asked.
3. I'm Democratic
4. My mom passed away and we dont have a basement in her house, it's three stories UP.
5. There ARE other places and you are free to leave or we can help you
6. Oh wait. There were more than three....

Ha, I was sent packing out of one of our lowest local dive bars for looking underage at 32, even after presenting valid ID!

It's a tad frustrating that I was able to participate in a discussion in Foo that is now moved to P&R, where I'm not allowed.
But agree that the O/P is underarmed for the opponent he's facing.

Is Trollheim a real place ? You have to request membership like P&R ?

This thread is fake news. I'm going to bump it every time I feel like taking a crap on Trump.
