I grew up in a Chicago Bear, Chicago Cubs home,I was always told these teams were the only teams that mattered, well flipping the script, my favorite color was yellow, and the first time I saw the Packers it was on a black and white TV, when a color TV came in the house I saw the perfect opportunity to tick the family off by cheering for my favorite colors and I have been a pain in the rear since, except for the 86 Bears,Yeah I actually cheered for them that year, and I’m not a full traitor from the Windy City I like the Whitesox, and Bulls and Blackhawks..#go figure.
I became a fan as a 10 year old growing up in the Bronx New York less than a mile away from Fordham University. I remember watching Vince Lombardi, Bart Starr, Jimmy Taylor (my favorite player back then) and Paul Hornung lead the team to the championship game against Philadelphia in 1960. Been a fan ever since.
Apparently expressing opinions, answering questions, offering alternate points of view,and poking a little satirical humor is frowned upon in this medium... notedYou are welcome to leave any time. If you struggle with this due to some addictive trait, let me know and I'll assist you by barring your re-entry.
Selective censorship to fit the narrative of only ideas supported by the “chosen few” ( radical political organizations have the same philosophies and certainly cuts across the concepts of Freedom of Speech).....you take yourself too seriously...Time & place. Not every section of the board is viewed with the same tolerance.
This is a private board. Freedom of speech does not apply here. Hence moderators.Selective censorship to fit the narrative of only ideas supported by the “chosen few” ( radical political organizations have the same philosophies and certainly cuts across the concepts of Freedom of Speech).....you take yourself too seriously...
Read it againThankyou....it further supports my original post
That is a very true statement. People have choices.My Favorite paragraph from that article and something all Members should keep in mind:
"So when you find yourself bumping up against the boundaries of behavior in an online community, you might want to consider whether that community is really the right community for you. If so, then you can either adapt your behavior to the code of conduct or you can use persuasive means to try to change the code of conduct. But don’t make cries of “Censorship!” — you gave up that right when you joined."
You missed the point entirely...not surprising
Interaction between people is enriched when dialogue is open. It is stunted when suppressed.
You've shown your stripes.... repress and threaten those who don’t support your narrative or support your position...clearly demonstrated.
The mean fact that you are attempting to pull a “Perry Mason” is humorous.
Of course you have “rights” to run this site however you wish and use it as an instrument to make you feel superior and important..... have at it....you’re missing the opportunity however to expand your perceptions, have a little fun, learn things, and engage and enjoy banter with people of varying viewpoints. Your posts regarding threats , legalese, and warnings are very narrow and actually are contrary to the “rules” you have incorporated into the/your “club“.
What’s even more funny is what apparently triggered your tirade was a statement I made about “what made me a Packer fan” and I in jest said “ what made me not a Packer fan” after last weeks crap show.... amazing lack of insight and tolerance you exhibit....read my post for what it is... lighten up and please understand this forum is just that .... a forum about a little team in a little sport that has little real consequence in the world.
BTW.... I’ve worked inside the legal profession for 30+ years so lectures about rights and laws is kind of moot
This is a good thread topic that seems to have taken a bad turn, somewhere down the line last spring. As a new member here are my thoughts.Packers are family
