Very subtle !!
I could post a Free Speech thread, no wait, that's not allowed either.
Orthodox liberal opinions are always welcome.
Could be change is coming
Well, we know it will in D.C. but looks fairly ominous in SE as well.
Change is good
If it goes with consistency
"Change is the hobgoblin of little
The secret to protecting one's free speech
is to say all you want about what another has said but without additional personal commentary about the person who said it. It's that simple.
More like saying what someone else is willing/wants to hear.
No, Steven has a point...
One can express an idea without making a personal comment about the person you are addressing. It is just that simple.
Of course, maintaining the same identity over the years goes to proving one's credibility too... DuckMan
Have you ever tried it?
Do you want me to post a link to refute your comment ?
If I was prone to baiting
to bad? your actions belay your words
Since you are the number one offender here by far when it comes to making it personal instead of addressing the issues.
You mean offender towards you, right ?
And yet, I can show examples where I have been more than sincere and polite to you. Can you show the same where it was directed towards me?
Didn't think so. To bad?
That was real smart.
Maybe I 'll just let others you've started your little fights with answer. You do it all the time.
It is TRUE that you get personal quicker and more often than not. I've called you on it several times. Surely you are not so delusional that you don't recognize that?
I think that call that...
I think they refer to that tactic as "asked and answered" on TV court drama shows.
So, self-edit? Self censor?
That's not free speech.
Anyway, I neither require nor expect free speech at SE. They are not bound to honor free speech. But a little fairness and balance would be nice.
About fairness and balance
I might complain if I felt I'd an made an honest mistake and received harsh treatment. But, if I knew I was stepping over the line and did so anyway knowing of the potential consequences, I could have no gripe about whether I got the max and felt that someone else got off easier. As for showing favoritisms here...maybe I'm numb in some part of the brain but I've not really noticed it. It wouldn't be much concern anyway. What I have noticed is that a lot more slack has been given around here of late. In fact, it often seems either no one's watching or they're exercising considerable restraint. Life ain't that bad when you've got a place to spout off knowing you're not burning your own bridge when you do so.
Of course there will be change. Wait a while, I wouldn't be surprised if some people say that a lot of the attacks on Palin's kids never happened. Reminds me of the old Soviet Union and things like photos sometimes. Poof! What official? No such person.
