Well when I read this post, uncomfortable didn't come to mind actually Ron as much as unpatriotic, disrespectful, racist, inaccurate, hateful, and bordering on defamation, not to mention in very poor taste. Was it because it was Barack Obama, the future president, no, was it because it joked about his color, yes! I immediately went to Membership Agreement and didn't find an infraction in those five rules but on reading the legal stuff below I thought I had, and here is what that said"
"You agree, through your use of this service, that you will not use PipTalk Poetry Forums to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, or otherwise violative of any law." I figures it was in violation of that alone, if we didn't have a rule in place to govern racial slurs.
Now with this link you have provided I see that I am allowed to not like something posted, or someone can dislike something I post, as long as it is within the guidelines. If I am governed by those six rules then no I can't find any "rule" that has been violated except this:
"Think before you post and make darn sure you can be as proud of your words in five years as you were when you wrote them. You are creating a legacy and should treat it as such."
Just be thankful this post was not about the Irish See my point?
