I'll never abandon this forum. There is the chance it may pick up again.
I wanted to counter some lies being said about me and this place at a sewer of a domain named FSZ.
You can check out the first post on this entry titled Sing for the Reverend Martin Luther King. That is also one of the new places I can be found blogging.
The other one is DaveFromQueens.com. There I am posting as Prepostericity.
I was also able to get in some diaries at DailyKos as Prepostericity and NoMoreKosHate. At the FreeSpeechZoneBlog, I started as Prepostericity, then became M&NYC, and finished off as socrates. Never did I once use those names as sock puppets. While I believe the use of zombies is ethical, I do not consider it moral to use sock puppets. I see a huge distinction between the two terms. I'm not gonna provide a link to FSZ, because I believe it is one of the worst disinfo pits of them all. So folks will have to google or whatever to find the place.
As for AAANI moving forward, I want to say a few things here, which will enable me to avoid making a post in the admin. section.
I am trying my darndest to not ban anyone. In the old days, the new member SharkGirl would never have lasted beyond her first post. I banned Jazzroc for not debating fair and for his track record of being a troll. May41970 continues to throw me under the bus. Consequently, he has been permanently banned.
Lophofo does not have admin. capabilities at this point for his own protection. It is slow enough here for only one to take care of that. If we pick up again, he will be given mod powers. For those who are members, there is complete free speech. FreeForums has disabled guest posts, so that's why those aren't possible anymore. Members are also able to edit their posts again. I am not allowing posts to be deleted, so if anyone ever removes their content, there will be proof of why threads don't make sense. That is a rare occurence, but I have seen it done, where folks delete all of their posts.
The main reason I have decided to have Lophofo not be a mod/admin. is so if anything strange happens, I will not have to worry if he was involved. It's not that I don't trust him. It just makes sense to have the blame placed on me or outside forces if things go wrong.
I have been saving the forum.
The old rule of zero tolerance for tinfoil has been lifted. But when I see it, I will respond.
I will never alter posts. I'd appreciate if cursing could be kept to a minimum. Perhaps if I see too much of that, I will bleep the bad words. Once in a while I don't mind. Oh yeah, hate speech towards other members will not be tolerated. This will be a safe haven.
I kinda ribbed into SharkGirl a bit. Feel free to not walk on eggshells and come after me if you feel I deserve it. Let's attack the messages, not the messengers. As for public figures, that rule is somewhat modified. Remember this, if it isn't a lie and/or malicious, it isn't libel.
That should do it.
Oh, how I long for better days for America.
