If not, what's the difference from me not reading political posts and you not reading all of my posts? I do not see your rationale at all.<br><br>_______<br>
Woah... showing your teeth?<br><br>A long time ago, I was posting in both forums when things got a little wonky at MacCentral. I can't remember what exactly was happening (maybe a sockpuppet episode or some other nonsense) and I commented on it here. I was warned by another member, not about my participation here, but by a member concerned about creating acrimony between the two forums given that several people posted in both. I never forgot that.<br><br>No one can begrudge you for wanting to take a stake in this place and protect its integrity, but it sounds in your writing like you need to deal with your problems directly with the people you are talking to. Why begrudge MacCentral when nearly all of us once posted there?<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
I am talking about the integrated political banter that seemed to creep into many of the posts...that was not a rare occurrence. If MC would of kept their political forum, it probably would have been a bit different. However, IMO, MacCentral was not a fun place to visit. <br><br><br>_______<br>
It seems a little strange that you are taking exception with me for only saying that I understand how people would be offended. What's the problem with trying to see it someone else's way?<br><br>-- Cee Bee Double-U
this is insane isn't it?<br><br>anyway, my crypt is ROT13. with all the mischaracterizations you've endured you may as well endure that. i AM sorry. smilie.<br><br><br><br>"in times of peace the warlike man attacks himself."<br><br>[color:red]Libertarian Communist</font color=red>

I'm loving every minute of this thread ...you have no idea how funny it is to me to see people arguing over such trivial things. <br><br>People are offended by my disinterest in politics?? Does that not sound a bit crazy to you? <br><br>zweisoft<br>
I totally agree with you.<br><br>I get along fine with most everyone here and even more so since I don't have to deal with the political stuff.<br><br>The thing I don't like is when someone starts a thread that is right on the edge of a political post and then it spills into politics. I see politics on TV, read it in the paper, and hear it in real life. When I come here to MacMinute, I want to talk Macs or whatever else, except for politics and religion.<br><br><br><br>my photos
