They just up and nuke shit....jus sayin
O wouldnt work for ya anyway.
You bet I can explain it. If that leads you to think like that, then it is pure speculation. No it had nothing to do with the thread. Is there some rule that you have to do that? Yes, black as in “African American”. They named themselves that, not me. What I was referring to is there was just about as many blacks as there are non-English speaking Mexicans here. As used for comparison. The blacks here out number the whites roughly 2 to 1. So that would make for a lot of Mexicans, wouldn’t it?So Forkin, in the "Don't Hire Mexicans Thread" you posted.
I went to Wally World and I couldn't tell if it looked more like Africa or Mexico
Explain that on to us would you.
To the rest of us, it leads us to believe that you just don't like to be around anyone that's not of your race. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that kind of comment had nothing to do to a thread debating "illegal immigrant problems". That statement had more of an intolerance of other races besides your own. I would presume that by the mention of "Africa", you were refering to Black folks. The debate was towards Hispanic undocumented labor. What did the mention of "Africa or Black folks" have anything to do with the previously mentioned debate other than your intolerance to be around them as well as Hispanics or "Mexicans" as you put it. Enlighten us would you.......
What are you trying to do? Pull the race card on me? Nice try at making me look racist.

The continuation of a series of threads revolving around the subject of racism have no upside on these forums. They always turn out badly and someone is always pissed off and there are many who dislike the content even being present. The content just isn't what pb was created for (boating and fun stuff). The bottom line is no matter how much you debate with someone about the subject of racism on the internet, nothing in the world changes because of it. Just a few members become polarized and angry posting about it and it serves no meaningful purpose and the forum in general gets a bad rap for allowing it. I think it is a subject that is a hair trigger for many and is best left to forums that thrive on these types of very controversial and hot button subjects.
The main thread that I locked and moved was getting out of control and disrespectful between members (not acceptable) even following my initial warning. The other threads that spawned (which is typical) are viewed by moderators as continuations of the same topic, thus they get killed also because we do not want the content just continuing from thread to thread. If we did, we would not lock the first one. I always find it interesting that folks just start another thread after something obviously got locked by a moderator due to inappropriate content of some sort. There are many forums out there where if members ignore a moderator they are just flat out banned. We don't do that here but conversely we expect our members to respect the moderator's warnings and handling of threads. We rarely edit or delete anything either unless it is slanderous or highly offensive in nature, hence the threads get locked for viewing and filed away in the archives of gws. My whole point is when a topic or thread is killed, it should be a warning in and of itself that the content should not be continued in a new thread. That, I am guessing is Info's reason for killing it.

I fully understand your message here Mike. But it's like you said, it gives the forum a bad wrap. However, it is always the same heads always posting controversial posts (to put that lightly) when any kind of this debate arises. Yet, these guys are allowed to continue. I have some serious conflict in continuing to support PB magazine as a result. I along with several other board members find it highly disrespectful. If you compare my post count here to RDP and even RC who probably gets 2% of the traffic this place sees, you will see that it's much higher there. I know you don't own the boards here Mike and I'm not expecting anything from this conversation, but I will say that what is allowed here, is fairly unwelcoming to some folks. I think we can both agree that this a problem. If I was an advertising customer, I would not feel good about paying for your services after reading some of these threads. Those are my .02
there are very many people angry with todays society. therfore they speak their minds...
is there anything wrong with that?
if people are so mad about it, maybe the Political Rhetoric section should be removed.
after all... this is a BOAT FORUM!!!
