This thread and sub-forum is not a place for discussing politics and in particular Birtherism. Do not derail this thread or suspensions will be handed out.

Radical centrists are interesting beasts, to say the least.
Well,you did delete my significantly longer, more well explained posts. That one you left was just an addendum to make a point through exaggeration.

- I can't delete anything; I'm not a mod.
- Agree to disagree about "well explained" but agree on "significantly longer."

But, just so I'm not misrepresenting you here, is it your claim that the post I quoted was the only one in this thread in which you exaggerated? Or only exaggerated intentionally?

Re: Houston, We Have A Problem...

Moderators have been a topic in the thread and I know from another thread - Users should be able to ignore mods who poo-post.... that we cannot block or ignore Moderator's posts I will ask:

What is the reason a DVD talk mod would post this in the Blankets in movie theater? thread?

Re: Houston, We Have A Problem...

Allow me to pull back the curtain just slightly and point out that a couple years ago that post would have been a variation on "Thanks, Obama!" I am not actually upset about blankets in theaters, nor do I blame Trump for this phenomenon.

Furthermore in this post I am not actually upset that David Hasselhoff did not play Nick Fury in the MCU, nor do I blame Obama for it:

Maybe you should.

Spoiler:
J/K. You should blame Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch.

Since the Trump election, Groucho stopped being Groucho though, and is this whiny anti-Trumper who cries when conservatives don't jump in to defend Trump when he beckons and is obsessed with Obama's tan suit. So this post in the blanket thread was a troll post not any sort of classic Groucho humor. I want the old Groucho back too, but that wasn't it.

Re: Houston, We Have A Problem...

To be fair, I’ve moved on from Obama’s tan suit and am now obsessed with the “terrorist fist jab”.

In the current atmosphere of politics forum that you know is way different and so much has changed since the "thanks obama" era, you could have restrained your impulses. You're a mod. We even talked about political posts being planted elsewhere. I don't initiate anything with "Trump" outside of politics due to the distractive stigma of today's politics (unless the discussion has already gone that way and I put in my thoughts).

You saying it's ok for myself and other's to do what you did? If so, fine. We'll drop it but I am sure I would be notified my post was unwarranted.

So don't do it. Many look up to you as a role model, and some of us are still wanting to.

I respect your opinion too, and always appreciate your willingness to jump balls out into conversations. Most of the other more conservative posters are all snowflakey now imho.
