I have tried to avoid this conclusion for a long time but I no longer can. It is no longer possible to have ANY political or topical discussion without it descending into nasty flame wars. It's really a shame because I think the community here is a god one to discuss serious issues with. But every single thread is hijacked by flamers. Every single one. So I am departing the Whipping Post, possibly forever.

Politics is a touchy subject. i know I get upset and frustrated and say things I wish I hadn't. If your too good for the rest of us fine. I wont apologize for longing for a peaceful, better world.

Can't say as I'm going to apologize for wanting a better world either. I figure we probably all do but we're looking at different sides of the same coin sometimes.

I had a simple thread about Walter Cronkite's death that gina had to interject her "end times" garbage into.

Par for the course.

That thread really did disintigrate in a hurry didn't it. And I thought we had a good one going there.

It was a nice sharing of memories until our resident Nostradumbass joined in.

Sometimes at work while driving on a long stretch of road, I come up with topics to post in The Whipping Post. Then I start to argue with myself as to whether or not Bush was an idiot or Obama isn't really a citizen. The whole trip ends with me calling myself an @$$holle.

Sometimes when I catch myself looking at myself in the mirror, I wink.

I like Gina, I may not agree with 99.9% of her posts, but I can't recall her ever resorting to name calling when someone flames her posts.

I don't want anyone to get the feeling I feel I am being run off. Far from it. It's just that whenever I find an interesting thread sooner or later it starts to get dominated by the same attacks, back and forth, nonsense. I know most forums are like that. I mean you should see the message boards on youtube. But I thought this was different. It is not. At least not in the Whipping Post. The rest of the site is still right as rain. So I'm sure some people enjoy the attack and counter-attack but I do not. That is why I am leaving and for no other reason.

It didn't ever cross my mind you were leaving for any reason than you wanted to go. I know better than that.

No surprise...the WP is dominated by Democrats. It doesn't take long to see that...enter at your own risk

There is no arrogance like Left Wing arrogance.

Interesting posting history you have.

Most of your posts are attacking Otie, the other few I'm the lucky target.

So how many previous names have been banned?

Actually, I can name one, and a recent one at that. We had a really good debate (you'll notice I didn't say discussion) about the Honduran Constitution and why what was done about the removal of the former President was legal.
Different sides put in their opinions, but I don't remember anyone low-blowing (get your mind out of the gutter) someone else in the whole thread.

You're right. The exception that proves the rule. BTW, so you all don't think I'm a hypocrite, I will stay in this one thread which I started to discuss why I am not participating in anymore threads until it too degenerates. See ya.

Oh and btw, very little of what I am talking about has been directed at me. I just don't like reading flame wars at all. I find it boring.

Only the arrogance of the superior Right Wing.....but I think us pinko commies are making a little headway.
