    Yep this. Unfortunately some take a thread off topic and it ends up being a flame fest so it gets locked or deleted.
    Anything I post may be my opinion and not the law... you are responsible to do your own verification.

    Blackstone (1753-1765) maintains that "the law holds that it is better that ten guilty persons escape than that one innocent suffer."

    If anything, the owners of this site(John and Mike)are VERY lenient with the rules and sparing of their ban hammer.

    Start your own forumsand let's see how long it is before you have to start writing rules andusing your ban hammer. Because either that will happen, or you won't and your site will stagnate or die because the 5-10% of utterly unpleasantpeople will drive off many or mostof the others.

    This. And then some.

    John and Mike do more than pay lip service to rights, even on their own private property!

    However, they would be fools to never put their foot down. There is a lot of OT on this forum, which I think is actually largely good, but every so often some trash needs to get taken out.

    No worries. I don't think you reached a line ofdisrespect. It's ok to have an opinion that not everyone agrees with. Lord knows I've spouted some.

    After what's been going on in the last month or so, I'm surprised they haven't locked the Mich forum altogether for a cool down month or so.

    Not nearly as clever as sprinerXDacp's choice of words.
