While Philip does have the right to run his forum anyway he wants, apparently he does not understand the definition of freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is the right to express ones ideas or opinions, with the following exceptions: libel, slander, obscenity and incitement to commit a crime, without fear of censorship. Yes, Joe may have used obscenity in his posts but he did not use it without provocation or just for the sake of using it. How does making a statement that freedom of speech is not allowed contribute to creating a positive, welcoming environment for the forum? According to Philips own statement nearly every member of the site should have been banned by now for simply making a post and expressing an opinion or idea. I understand the policy of not allowing political, war, or religious topics to keep arguments at a minimum and I also understand that there should be some level of respect and civility among members but a discussion forum cannot exist without allowing members to speak their minds or express their opinions and ideas even if they disagree with each other. Once you start down this path of instilling fear in members that they may be punished for anything they say where does it end?

I hardly ever go to RS that much anymore cause of the attitudes some have over there. But to lock a thread that was started pretty much for fun for Joe, and for Phillip to post what he did, RS can go to hell for all I care. Josh said it best when he said where does it end. One thing that seperates TIG from any other site is the team we have here that is very leniant when it comes to matters like this. With hopes that it will eventually die down on its own, but when it doesnt, then they step in. We do try to be a self mod forum, but the actual mods do styep in when its called for and do it publically, most of the time. But if RS is going to become like the Third Reich and want to stop every damn thing thats said over there, I have no use for it anymore. If I want to be censored, Ill move to Russia.

I will say that there are a few members of rs that i will not miss over here at tig. Kind of a relief to shed off a few of the specific dooshbags by just hanging over here...

I've just been made aware of the issues with Joe Y's posting that caused him to be suspended for month. I've also seen the diatribe that followed.

Stop it now.

I'm getting ready to lock that thread down. Do not start any further discussion on this topic.....

I would like seeing us starting 100 threads about this topic at once......each member of TIG (or JY-supporters)....LOL

While I'm generally a rabblerouser, and I think that the idea of a slew of threads all appearing at once, and the admin/mod crew over there going ban-annas on everyone posting is mischievously beautiful. BUT I am friends with some of those same people and don't want to put them in the middle of this any more than they are. I also don't want any of my friends doing something that could cost them missing out on items in the classifieds or sales from their own for sale threads, because they're banned. I accept the fact that THIS situation is complete and utter bullshit. It's not a case of me knowing better and goading the troll on. He made comments that I couldn't ignore, comments that are far more deep seatedly hateful than me using a modified swear word in a response to him. Regardless of what happens, once the ban is over, I will NOT be an active poster on RS. I may have an active acct, but I'll only use it to buy/sell, anyone that has questions can visit me here.

Do as you will, and the support is more than appreciated. Just think before you act please.

Cheers
Joe

I really respect what Joe just wrote. He's looking out for his friends, just like his friends were looking out for him. I'm in your corner buddy : )

Hey Joe, I don't have the pleasure of knowing you yet. But, having followed this thread it's great to see how the community has rallied round to offer their support. You are clearly highly thought of & it will be great to see more of you here!

What a messed up situation. I've been out of the loop for a while, so I've just finished reading the "Free Joe" thread over there.

Joe, you are totally right. For all the reasons that have been discussed before.

And the scariest part of all of this has been the comments by Phil that have come to light. It really bothers me that the tone he took has been a "I'm the parent, you're all the children" type of response. The whole point of the damn forum is to discuss, and argue, and agree, and disagree, and get pissed off, and make amends, and do all of the things that humans do.

Why the hell would I want to there if it's just a vanilla, Stepford Wives situation, where every post is "please and thank you."

I'm seriously considering ending my account there. I don't want to be a minion in a dictatorship.

Joe just wanted to let you know I'm with you on the principal of the issue. Phillip's comments made me sign up here today along with talking with Seth.

I was unhappy the bootleg question threads got shut down as fast as they did. I'd like to know what would happen if someone who has a legit bootleg question came on and asked it over the next few days. Would they be shut down and given a warning?? i think I'll be done with posting on RS after this.

Nice to see some new members drop in here. It can only add to our knowlage base here. Welcome everyone.

-Call most people who aren't from the USA untrustworthy - we recommend you not do that
-Call someone a Dbag for blantantly posting in the wrong section - 1 month ban

-Someone rips you off 1500 bucks
-You better not give the rest of the community all of the relevant information to ensure it doesn't happen again.

I'm still waiting for my ban for telling a mod over there to shove his smilie up his ass. Very inconsistent enforcing of the rules. But that was my point.
