BS in the Boz world.

Did anyone ask Axel if he was insulted?

Or better yet should I have been insulted by AMSís post earlier today that stated all Republicans were either Racist, Rich or Religious? Iím not Rich or Religious, but I am a Republican, so is AMS saying Iím racist?

Of course AMS shouldnít be suspended, but Bob shouldnít have been either.

Or about the amount of time it takes you to get from NYC to AC on a bus.



Well, it certainly feels that way sometimes

Personal insults require a person to be named.

If you say short fat people are obnoxious well I am short and overweight and probably will feel offended, but thats not an insult you directed at me personally.

I don't think EB was calling anyone racist. He quoted the comment and called the comment "racist" in a facetious manner.
I will continue toeing the line though and not get further into this subject.😀

I disagree, if I say anyone who ever rides a bus is obviously a child molester, I think you would be offended and know it was intended toward you. And rightfully so.

Obviously I donít think that and I hope it isnít taken that way. But my point is there are ways of insulting other members that may within the rules but are obviously personal insults.

To be fair you have a point.

In the recent thread about the card counting doc Inside the Edge I got excoriated when Axel made a comment about APs going in disguise to casinos. There was similar wording to attacks on my mask wearing and I did respond as if it was directed towards me.

Nonetheless when I insult Republicans please take it as. a whole and not directed to you personally

Why does this forum keep turning lemonade into pee?

Start with a nice thank you, within one page name-calling.

3 days. Personal insult.

For the record, I did not want Bob suspended, I didnt ask for that, I didn't even think it was possible. It was clearly a joke all around. I didn't take his comment as an insult whatsoever. I took his comment as him showing how if someone says something like that, they will be labeled by some people as a racists even when its a innocent joke. I am certain that's what Bob was doing, and he was joking with his comment. As to why I put a smiley face after what I said. Perhaps there was a misunderstanding and someone thought I took it as an insult(I ABSOLUTELY DID NOT!!). I ask that you reconsider the 3 day suspension since the intent was obviously not to call me a racist, but to show how that comment could be labeled as racist by some snowflakes. I have no doubt some people pretend they think it is.

BBB, under normal circumstances I think a suspension is the right call if someone is calling people racists. But, not in a situation where I think it's clearly banter and trying to make a point. Let's not let this be another "did you beat your wife lately" situation.

Not anymore. Mike changed that rule, if a group of people are insulted then it is suspension worthy.

Ain't that the truth.

Hmmm, let me try to understand this, a member can post "AssholeWolf" and not be suspended, but someone can reply to AxelWolf's post with the following comment: "Racist..", and get suspended.

Maybe EB should have posted the following instead: "racistWolf" (disclaimer: I do not have any reason to believe that AxelWolf is a racist and would never call him that).

I agree with Boz's earlier post about members here calling Trump supporters "racist". I am a Trump supporter, I am not a racist and I do find it insulting.

PS. I do NOT believe that either EB or happahero were purposely insulting Axel
