Well, since Peter Fonda has nothing to do with Vegas or gambling, I assume the "New Rule" is not being enforced in this thread and, as such:



The discussion had relented that non-political and non-divisive posts were not verbottten.

I get that was a peter fonda tweet but maybe u wanna think twice about posting it here




Why should I rethink that? This thread is discussing Peter Fonda's life - what he Tweeted was part of his life

His Tweet should not be divisive at all -- unless, of course, someone agrees with the proposition he makes therein

Political, provocative and controversial, and profane.

3 days. Should be longer for multiple rule-breaks, but I'm giving you a chance to catch up on rule changes.

Not sure what your point was in posting this, AOS. You had to have known better. Quoting someone else is no excuse for the content.

I think it was Stephen Kings The Long Walk where one of the contestants kept deliberately breaking the rules just to see how far he could safely push it.

I have to wonder what would have resulted had this been a discussion about Kathy Griffin. I can only imagine that the pic of her with (name redacted in order to comply with Ministry censorship) bleeding head in her hand. There is just so much controversial material provided by these cretins in Hollywood. Kind of hard to discuss them at all. Thread should be closed in order to maintain safespace standards.

You can politard up any subject. E.g most public figures have said something political. Wgaf.

Hopefully the politards can contain themselves. It might even be beneficial to be forced to act like a normal person.

Otherwise I can see the wiz going with the letter of the law.

If you’re not insulting members here with the politards reference, than who are you referring to?
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?

Can we all just get along by telling fictional stories about the death of cars and AP?

It's a term carried over from 2+2, where they implemented a similar policy.

They do have subforums just for politarding, but it is mostly contained to those.
