*** Deleted by me.

I had a 'talk' with Sangathor about this and cleared the air with him regarding what had chapped my ass. So I am deleting this post as to not continue the comments and create any issues or hard feelings with other members.

I read Dave's post below as well as Frankenstiens - and although we may disagree about governing content in an "Anything Goes" thread...that's also one of the best things about this site -and the reason why many stay. Again - I am NOT arguing for a thong thread or naked ladies...I never looked and wouldn't - I have that upstairs.

A big AMEN!! Serve me up another, Bartender. Oviously I agree with you. There was a thread locked here recently were a guy was looking for a some info about the Warrior. The only response he got was "Do a search". Well, I don't think the search feature is all that great. You can spend hours looking thru them and never find the answer you are looking for. It has never been helpful for me. I am sure others will say that it is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

I agree with most of what you are saying Bartender. In many subjects where censorship is involved the minority rules the majority. We cater to the "victums" too often in my opinion. We are scared to offend anyone even if it is only one. But,I do the same thing at my business. I jump through my ass for hundreds of personality types and people of other cultures trying not to offend any of them. I like the rewards of the income. I think my extra efforts have paid off for me really well financially. This site is property and the owner(s) can do with it how they see fit. Freedom of speech doesn't apply in here. This isn't the public street. This is business. If hosting companies or site supporters or sponsors or advertisers bail out because of content, the site will fail. Money talks. The paying customers make the business. These are the people that will be heard first. I could be a site supporter, I like this site for the most part, but there are enough things like the locking/deleting and censorship and some other things that keep my money in my pocket. Not long ago I read about how this site got its start. Censorship in the delphi forum seemed to be a part of it. As well as not accepting suggestions from the members and dictating with a "high and mighty" attitude. Those were not the only reasons but good enough ones I think.

Careful there sqeeky about complaining about the search. I got my wrist slapped once because I said somthing along the same lines about the search doesn't always get it. Of course to be fair alot of people make 500 threads asking the same old question over and over again and that probably contributes to the ton of crap to one ounce of useful information ratio that you usualy get with the search function imo. All in all the Mods are striking a pretty good balance here so lets try to cut them a little slack.

Im not sure if Im in the majority or not. In regards to the thong thread I didnt see the offending pics that shut it down but I have seen the multiple warnings about content over the years. I think if it were true Delphi censorship it would have been locked much sooner. Most of us are adults, but our kids have access to this site too

Try Labusas.org lots of smack talk, cursing, nekkid chicks, full penetration on occasion, bigots, Bush supporters and lots of characters.....and once in a while motorcycle talk...lol

I'm not one for censorship for the sake of weilding power or protecting the "smart people" from the stupid but this is Carknee's "house" and he does have a set of defined rules that we all have to stick to. We're also lucky enough to have people that care enough to put in some serious hours reading just about every thread and monitoring everything that's going on...all without any compensation at all, so please respect their positions.

That being said: I don't think there are any rules anywhere that would justify the locking of the "sad, Sad Day...thong thread locked", unless of course someone posted something pornographic in that particular thread or something that "went against the rules". I view the roles of the moderators that they should be non-partisan and thet it is not their place to impose their partcular personal values upon thier job, but it is thier job to enforce and uphold the written rules set forth regarding the use of this web site.

Ok...lock her up now...lol

Wonderful, another I hate the moderators topic. Just what we've needed. We haven't had one of those in a few months.

Thanks Sammy.

And for all you cynics, notice it's still not locked.

I personally don't mind that some of the threads are locked. Truth is, some of them need it. What I have a problem with is when a thread gets locked, or people get bent out of shape when someone feels the "search" forum wasn't used properly. I realize it's frustrating sometimes when the same questions get asked over and over, but sometimes it actually helps to look at certain topics from a different perspective. I have benefited greatly from some of the different perspectives that are brought out when the same topic is posted more than once. Another thing to consider is that there may actually be new information available about a specific topic since the last thread about that topic. If we simply respond by saying, "do a search", we may actually miss out on this new information. Just a thought. Thanks for listening.

I thought this site was about motorcycles and modifications, specifically the Warrior[?][?][?] I didn't realize it was a site where you post pictures about thongs, lingerie and half naked women.

Not that I have anything against these things. I love women and looking at them as much as the next red-blooded american guy. However, if I want to check stuff like this out, I will do it on other sites that are dedicated to that type of thing.

I dont mean to sound like a d*<k, but I actually like this site for what it is: a no nonsense website where I can find information and talk to others about an interest I really enjoy (motorcycles) without it being flooded with a bunch of off topic subjects.

That's it Sammy you're on my "list"....lol

Sang-no hate here, you guys all do a great job and a HUGE thanks needs to go out to all of the moderators for "keeping the ship on course".

Although I honestly didn't look at the boobies or thong threads, I'd hope that the guys who posted pornographic did it just because they were stupid and didn't read the rules, if they did it maliciously or repeatedly after being warned, they should have had their accounts suspended.

Just put in the rules that guys can't talk about locked threads anymore.

Dave-I agree that there are better places to check out chicks and this site is all about our fav bike the Warrior, but it also is about virtual "hanging out" with our buddies and shooting the $&*# with them. I've been here since the first week or so and feel like I kinda know everybody, I wouldn't want to BS anywhere else. Talking Warriors is fun but it's nice to just chill out too....you know what I mean?

The "Anything Goes" section is supposed to be about off topic subjects, right?

Sangathor - per my PM to you - feel free to lock this up. I don't want to get people off track so as I said earlier to you, I deleted the original post.

You guys make some good points...but I want it clear that this isn't about thongs, naked ladies, chicks, boobs, or anything else in that category. I could care less. Own yourself and take responsibility...meaning, talk, write, have fun - obey the rules - we are here to hang out.

GO LIONS.

I think thats the purpose of a "anything goes" section - u know its not bike related - so if your looking for "on topic post" info then stick in the forums that are warrior related (GD and TI forums)and dont bother with "off topic" post. I like the anything goes on boards - lets ya have some fun and see others are intrested in, it be p*rn, computers, rc cars or what not lets ya get to know them better and joke around. I think the members here are very good about where to post what in what forum.

Nice to read not everyone has an issue with the Moderator's..........

Incase some of you bent out of shape folks have not "Read" the "Forum Rules" you might want to spend a few minutes doing so.........It might clear up a few unclear questions with some pretty darn clear answers.
