    Apparently according to Patters the "moderator" who implies two things by the following


    That use of "bubba", will get one an infraction, even though said use by a Senator garnered no widespread negative reaction and

    That it's okay to say "nigga" if another poster says "bubba".


    Please clarify Patters - it's difficult to keep abreast of all the changing rules in this forum even when one has the guideline "whatever upsets a rightwinger will not be tolerated" to use for guidance. :rolleyes:

    next time you need to make a point .. leave me out of it.
    Your use of my name to prove a point in a post I had nothing to do with is over the line.

    "Bubba" is a term that has been used in this forum for a long time.
    Mostly by NEM who is no longer here.
    A "Bubba" is a southern redneck ... who are quite proud of being rednecks.

    As for the other term ... it has no business being used anywhere.

    but I am not the mod ... so who cares that you are crying like a child right now?

    MORE USES OF BUBBA

    Well mods ... is "Bubba" an approved word or an infraction word.

    let's have a trial with the word. It's a rather rude word but what will we do now have an approved list of words we can use and words we can't ... Is the forum the Republic of China?

    If someone is offended by bubba, then it's offensive, of course. Is it a term that warrants an infraction, I don't think so. Does 'nigga' warrant an infraction. Yes. Does everything that warrants an infraction get one? No. Why? Because sometimes people get rude, and it doesn't seem like the one who is being provoked should be the only one penalized. If I keep calling McCain a senile old slob, and finally a rightie calls me a name, I sort of had it coming. Sometimes I don't spend the time figuring out the exact evolution of the insulting posts, so it's best to see if people calm down. I don't think it's the job of the moderator to feed the divisions that are already in this forum. Moderation requires, well, a degree of moderation.
