Ok...here is my two cents worth in all of this mess. I have read the threads that have been posted here lately. I am very disturbed by what I have seen. I love this forum and the people that post here.

What bothers me is the attention these posts receive. We are all adults here (mostly anyway) and we should act that way. It seems like there are people seeking attention with these threads that are posted (IMHO) in haste. I thought the thread on freedom of speach was finished. Many said they would not reply again and here it is still active. I am very disappointed and ashamed.

That is all I have to say on this matter.

Agreed.

I am done with it, I've offended people, made a fool of myself, I am ashamed of mine and other's behavior, I am done.

To the members of Passions, I apologize for my part in the whole ordeal. Like Doreen said early in the thread- let's just agree to disagree.

Thinking is just what a great many people think they are doing when they are merely rearranging their predjudices.

Due to the views of some members to cease attacks on 84 and DE, I have made the decision to start pruning threads that contain such. JP...I hope that you can understand my reasoning here...sometimes personal is not the same as important.

umm Marilyn... I hate to be a stickler, (well not really, I love it, but that's beside the point!) But... you are paying attention to them, AND posting a new topic which will recieve more attention!

I'm glad you brought this up Marilyn..I haven't responded to any sort of post, but I certainly believe your viewpoint and too wish that we could act more like adults.

Yes Chris my friend. I also accomplished what I set out to do. There are some that felt the shame intended by this post and refrained from more nonsense. Some people need a kick in the pants to begin to use their brains. I am sure you know this...lol.
