Wow, I really don't think DarkOz should have been suspended for posting that video.



Mike was in a mood, obviously..... I think I can only find a few thousand more 'political' statements that did not result in a suspension....
Frankly, I'm not sure what definition of political that video falls under....

Apparently it's been reversed because here I am.

Perhaps Wizard will weigh in.

I cannot remember anytime in WOV a suspension was reversed.

Anyone know of any in the past?

At any rate thanks to Axel and Soopoo for support.

Last thing I thought was it was political. I think all sides can agree against police brutality.

And this was a direct video of a newsworthy incident so no room for the usual what happened that we didn't see.

The video didn't go to guilty or innocent. If that guy had been an axe murderer there was no call to just sit on his neck after the threat was over until he asphyxiated

At any rate, while I am back the thread appears closed so let's not discuss it here either

Again thanks guys

(Now the irony to find out my suspension being lifted was a mistake????)

Posting that video and making that thread not expecting it to not get political is like opening your gas cap and checking the level with a lit match and expecting to not kill yourself. DT is there for that kind of thread.

Well at least you agree it wasn't political

It just had the potential to get political.

That in itself should not be a marker for what is a political thread.

If so, then most every COVID-19 thread is suspect.

Truthfully I think you and I could have kept to a discussion without mentioning true politics. Again we kind of are managing on the Covid threads.

Sorry you don't feel that way

um.. why post such a heavy subject here in a gambling forum? DT might be a better place to post it?
and what do you think threads about white cop with unarmed handcuffed dead black suspect would deteriorate into?

also, were you actually banned?
or did Mike update the list but forgot to ban you? (usually, it's the other way around)

Reversals and reduced suspensions happen all the time.

I honestly don't have a presence at DT.

No account. I don't even go visit.

Oh, my bad.

First time for me.

I think I have been suspended more in the last five months than the entire decade since I joined
