Sentence on Romes will be announced shortly.

Meanwhile, forum management is discussing a change in rules to get back to a focus on Vegas and gambling.

Other people we need to worry about as they are less than 1-2% of the population and abnormal.

Supermodels
Playmate model body types
Geniuses
Artistic and musical prodigies
Olympic capable gold medalists with an overabundance of fast twitch or slow twitch muscle fibers
Guys over 6-8 making millions with an inflatable ball.

etc.,

Like when left handers were punished, there's always some stupid idea out there to punish people who are at most annoying to you rather than actually dangerous.



I dont think AP's make up 1/10 of one percent of the population.

I am part of such a scorned minority

It's to bad that peoples thoughts are so programmed that there can't be a topic like Bob started here. I think this thread has the potential to illuminate and educate.

Ams blocked the thread right away or so he says, that is sad because I think he may have had the experience and certainly the intelligence to discuss this topic in an adult and possibly civil manner.

My take on more than 80% of AMS posts is that they all include a slightly disguised insult, and he has been given time out occasionally for it, but also I've witnessed Babs instant defense of anything remotely insulting to AMS. It's possible he has her on speed PM? Whatever, they're handling that. But then I notice Once dear leaps in and warns and threatens against straying to close the insult line. Is everyone that pitifully sensitive? Is that what your work of love and respect for free speech has come to?

I've had gay friends longer than twice the time AMS has been alive. A friend of ours who is a Dyke just left after staying with us for two weeks, [she is also an excellent cook].

I remember years ago some mayor of San Francisco retorted when someone remarked that SF was known for having many homosexuals that live there, he said "yes we do have many gay people" but we also have a lot of other things of interest.

I'm sorry to see you shut down this thread, for whatever reason you feel the need, [if you do]. I don't see it as prejudice or racist, maybe others have to? IDK, but if members here don't give this a chance to be discussed openly and maturely, that is as homophobic as anything I can think of, when we are afraid to even say the word. It must not appear to you Wizard, that there has been a direct insult, or you would have dealt with it, as would OD, or whoever's on duty. I think by not giving it a chance, you are reducing LBG's to that being the entirety of their existence. We all are, more than our sexuality.

We have moderators standing at the ready to do what they feel is necessary, extra warnings have already been given. What is everyone afraid of?



I agree with this.

The problem is this thread was started from a comment that gays are degenerative to the human race.

You cant start an illuminating and constructive conversation that is insult free with such a comment.

As to the comment itself, there was not even given any credence to it. I can only assume Maxpens thoughts are homosexuals are degenerative because they conduct sex that does not result in procreation.

1) homosexuals can have children. I know quite a few that engaged in straight sex for that purpose, both male and female. Its a choice to do so that nothing prohibits them from making.

2) by that definition I am certain that every straight male on this forum has had degenerative sex.

Masturbation.

Oral sex (about as much the wrong hole as any gay male uses)

Anal with the opposite sex (wrong degenerative hole again)

Using birth control.

Romes should not be suspended, he is completely correct. This thread has no place here, some of the comments that were already posted in the discussion thread that ended with this thread being created were disgustingly homophobic. I donít come to this site for homophobic bullshit.

Iíve blocked all the political threads already because I donít come to a gambling forum for that crap. I knew this thread wouldnít bring anything but arguing and suspensions.

Mike suspend Romes if you must but I wonít be back as long as heís suspended and honestly if heís suspended I might not be back for a while after that. This forum used to be about something interesting and it has been reduced to the lefts and rights shitting all over each other.

So this is the society we live in now.

New member: Hi. I'm Gay. I love
being Gay and I love you knowing
I'm Gay, But unless you're Gay
yourself, you can't talk about it,
discuss it, acknowledge it any
way. If you do, you're a bigot
and a homophobe.

Because this is what it's come
down to. If you don't want it
discussed, shut up about it.
Quit telling people you're
sexual preferences. I've never
ever had a another man tell
me, hey, I like to have sex with
women. Why do you think that
is. Because it's NONE OF MY
BUSINESS. For the life of me,
I don't understand why so many
Gay people have to make their
Gayness my issue too.

A mod (Mike?} said in a thread
that was being hijacked to
start a Gay thread, so I started
one. And now everybody is
upset. What's been said here
that's wrong or offensive. Please
point it out.

I have a feeling if they make too much of a change the forum won't be very active. As I said before, people come for the gambling and the math, but they stay for the drama(and various other things of course). You can look at some other gambling forums , once you take away some of the most prominent troublemakers the form practically dies.

The only thing I can really see working in this situation is there being a rule about starting controversial threads, and then punishing the offenders. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind Bob started this thread with the intention of causing controversy.

Personally, I think they should have some kind of locked section where you need a password in order to view it and post. Something you have to opt-in with a disclaimer to participate. They could have more relaxed rules. I would also make it so not just a random new member can sign up for it. I would make it to where you had to be a member here for x amount of time and posts.

But I didn't enjoy it, any of those
times. Well, maybe just a little.
And I would never do it again,
unless of course the opportunity
presents itself.

That those men are secure in their
sexuality and don't need to announce
it? You are correct.
