Second, I did close 2 of them because I thought they got a little out of hand.
Here was my explaination to Warlord:
"..some users were making some very racist comments and using ethnic slurs. I thought it was unappropriate and decided it was best to delete those posts and close the topic. I've been very leinent with letting people post what they want about this tragedy, because I'm all for free speech and think that something like this should be discussed openly. However, I do have a problem with racism, which may offend other users; and in those cases, I think it may be best for the community if I censor some posts. I hope you understand."
If anyone has a problem with my actions, please let me know, and why; and I'll definately listen and try to work something out
I don't like to think of this as "Randy's board," I like to think of it as "our" board. I'm not a dictator. I think everyone should have a say in wat goes on here. Just because I run and host the board, doesn't mean you can't give me ideas, suggestions, comments, etc... I will listen
However, there may be times when i have to do something becasue it will benefit the community here, even though that may piss some of you off.
Si, I know you weren't accusing me of this, i just wanted to get this in the open
My hats off to Randy, this board is "all of ours"...when you start getting posts like that, you make enemies of people on the forum that were a day before your friends. Trust me, I have feeling welling up inside of me that I want to let everyone know also...but try to be considerate of other people on the board.
