    Do you think I, or any other conservative, would get away with any of the following quotes...? These are all taken letter-by-letter (cut 'n paste) from posts written by Nem over the past few days:

    "Go kill another marine, I am getting fed up with sh!thole Americans like you."

    "What a fu kk ing pity that there are so many,"

    "YOUR ENTIRE POST IS THE BIGGEST BUNCH OF BULLSH!T i HAVE EVER SEEN COME OUT OF YOUR HEAD."

    "and let American of the evil natuire of this ignorant mutha fkkr."

    "Dont give me the Clinton bullsh!t cause yu are so friggin off base with that one it is laughable."

    "This man is the biggest Piece of Sh!~it that has ever held the office of the Presidency."

    "If my words offend anyone, thats too friggin bad"

    "I see. Wlhem mediamatters backs up everything they print with documentation, tapes, videos, dates, times, locations and names, that is bullsh!t, according to you."

    Seriously, there's absolutely no reason for him to still be here. All he does is slam unprovoked insult after unprovoked insult at people.

    Oh, I see. So someone's a "sissy" because they want to take part in intelligent (but still passionate) debate over political issues without being constantly subjected to venom, vulgar language (deliberately misspelled to get around the filters) and hatred...?

    Interesting definition of "sissy" you got there, Pujo. You'll make a darn fine moderator someday..!!

    Hey, none other than your friend Pujo said it perfectly in another post when he responded to you...

    "I could believe (your "I don't know" answer) if you didn't have such strong opinions on everything else."

    Wow. talk about the pot and the kettle...

    I don't really care what people call me but with NEM doing it all the time, the place is at risk of dropping to the lowest common denominator (NEM) and just becoming a bunch of back and forth namecalling.

    I'd put your body of work up against anyone's. I know I've called you a few names (like SOM "Stupid Old Man") simply because I get sick of your B.S. insults but your body of work in this area stands alone. SOM.

    Am I an expert on those subjects..? Nope. But I certainly know a heck of a lot more about those things than you do... Sorry if this upsets you so much...

    YOU don't see me start threads like you do, challenge to nem, why are the moderators afraid of nem, and other poster rant threads.
    Your favorite word to use is hypocrite. Look at the titles of your threads and read what your saying.

    Good God, man, are you blind..?!? Did you just, like, totally not see the post I made that started this all, showing how much you spew venom, hatred and vulgarities and any and all who dare to disagree with you...?

    Harry Boy does the same thing, so does Turd, I've been guilty of a few personal attacks, even both moderators sometimes go over the line. You should either complain about the level of discourse here in general, or just deal with it (and recognize that your hands aren't 100% clean either). Personally, I think this board is pretty close to an internet cesspool, but it's not any one person's fault...

    Nobody's hands here are 100% clean - including mine. But I don't see anybody doing so much by way of venom, hatred and vulgarities as nem.

    Harry Boy, my friend... sometimes I actually think NEM and Harry are two seperate personalities of one person, like Golem and Smigel.

    NOBODY'S AFRAID OF THE BIG BAD NEM!!

    When NEM has crossed the line both Patters and I have repremanded him. Neither of us believe in asking for banishment, so we rarely, do it, and even so in the end the call is Ian's because it is his board.

    NEM was banned a few years ago, and it was completely boring around here, I had to PM NEM just to get through the day! I find now that I can't make it through the day without seeing what half baked idea he has thrown out there. NEM's been around longer than all of us, and he does have decent imput over at the football board (aside from his Bush like hatred of Charlie). NEM is like that crazy old uncle that we all have, he sits in the corner and takes pot shots at everyone in the family, we all claim that we are embarrsssed by him, but in the end, it just wouldn't be the same without him!

    Plus who could hate this face?????

    [​IMG]

    Pujo is right about the level of insults being thrown back and forth, we should all try and restrain ourselves! I'm very busy at work, so I'm not able to check the boards everyday, but I can only assume that the rhetoric will dwindle greatly once the season starts, if you don't already check out the General talk section, it is much less hostile there.

    And now to move everyone thoughts to another direction.....

    I give you Miss ARGENTINA:

    Is everyone happy now?

    You listed at most a couple of personal attacks. The rest of the examples you provided are not. NEM is no worse than others here who also express their views in antagonistic ways.

    Oh, OK. So a "couple of personal attacks" is fine then. Got'cha.
    Sorry, but I just don't see that level of vulgarity coming from any other poster. The profanity filters exist for a reason, don't they...?

    Aw, come on Patters--NEM is worse than anyone else. I can say this because I generally agree with his opinions, but rarely with his language. He's a screamer. Screamers have a problem--how do they escalate?

    That said, my feeling toward NEM is similar to the feeling I have toward my adolescent son, even though I think NEM and I are about the same age. I have a bemused tolerance for him, mostly because I think he can't help himself.

    But you have to get a feeling for his language--and translate it into normal English. For instance, if NEM says, "I HATE GEORGE BUSH!!!" what a normal person with the same feeling would say is, "I'm uncomfortable with many of Bush's decisions." These phrases have exactly the same meaning, but one has been NEMized.

    Once upon a time, there was a movie critic for one of the New York newspapers who loved every movie he saw and said so. For awhile, I thought he simply couldn't be trusted. You couldn't know, from his reviews, which movies to see and which to avoid.

    But gradually, I realized that he had his own language. If he merely "loved" a movie, that actually mean it wasn't worth seeing. If he thought it was "fantastic," that meant it was ok. If he said "This is one of the best movies I've seen this year," that meant it was fairly good. Etc.

    The same goes for NEM. I agree that it's a bother to have to translate his words back into normal English, but it's necessary if you want to understand what he really means. He doesn't feel things any more passionately than the rest of us. He doesn't dislike Bush more than I do, for instance, but he talks funny.

    I haven't been posting in this section long, but it seems to me that NEM is who he is and the best way to deal with him is to speak normal English back to him, responding not to his actual words, but to a reasonable translation of them.

    Should he be banned? Naw. No need. Let him scream. He's entertaining, unless you make the mistake of taking him at face value.

    The only problem that I have with NEM is when he posts political crap on the football forum.

    Over here, if I want to get involved with him I do it because I choose to. Even if I do it because he pissed me off or if I just want to screw with him, I do it because I choose to.

    I'd much rather see him do his political thing, as misguided and wacky as it it, over here and not on the football forum.

    He once said on the football forum that I had a vandetta againts him (sound familar?). I don't and never have.

    Let him do his thing over here. If you don't like it, leave this forum. OR, put him on your ignore list (Mikey is on mine).

    TC starts in 8 days. After that I doubt if I post over here or rarely if at all. I hope that NEM and everyone else will refrain from posting political stuff on the football forum.

    FOOTBALL IS JUST 8 DAYS AWAY!! :rocker:

    Harry, I agree, you don't launch personal attacks; but to some you are rude and vulgar. (Let's face it, you've certainly alluded to Bill Clinton in vulgar terms.) We have no rules in this forum about the tone of people's posts. We could have a rule that says, "All posts must be polite," but that would kill the forum. I like you and NEM for pulling no punches, telling it with heart. I think it adds something to the forum, and I think a lot of people enjoy responding to your posts and NEMs.

    Thank you Patters, yes, poor Billy Blue Dress, every so often I am forced to allude to Billy in "vulgar terms" how can anyone not do it, just thinking of Billy brings up "VULGAR", (cigars, phone sex, dead cats, rape, oral sex,) only God and Billy know what else this guy has done, the girls still say he's cute when he bites his lip though :rocker:

    Nems a whacko but I like him, I bet Bush would like him too if he got to know him.

    ....not to mention the frequent references equating homosexuality to paedophilia.

    I have a number of people on my ignore list. I think it is a great solution. They get to say what they want and I don't have to read it. Everyone is happy.
