Welcome to Librarium Online!
UN-BELIVABLE! THIS is something im going to have to loose my cool about.
Political threads banned, ONE WEEK after they were allowed again!
Listen, Americans, what do you do in real life when some one critisizes you? You punch them on the shoulder say "Haha, good one dog face.." and reply with an equally personal slander. Why? Because THATS how we show comaradarie.
How many times did you scrape your knee and have your mom tell you "Oh, stop crying and walk it off"? I can't even count the times that happened.
Its simply embarrasing to be known as the Rough Tough Gun taoting Barbarians, only to have my fellow Americans say "hey, that could possibly be interpreted as offensive to americans. My fealings are hurt".
BE THE PROUD TOUGH RUGGED INDIVIDUALISTIC PEOPLES THAT HAVE WON THE TITTLE "MOST POWERFULL NATION OF THE WORLD"!
Shiver, man...you missed the whole point that was flung into the air and crashed down like a flaming ball of pantyhose.
give it a rest. Phobos did not ban political posting for good. he stopped them pending some mod stuff.
Sorry that we all cant be Billy Bad Butt like yourself.
wait and see what evolves and we will go from there.
wWWwwAaaaAAgggGGGhHHHhhh!!!! = DeAth
I am fully to blame for the current situation. I saw what I believed was a situation that I shouldn't have to put up with.
The situation between Phobos and myself has been resolved to my satisfaction.
The whole disruption of the political topics forum I see as a seperate issue. Somehow it got lumped in with my last thread.
I suspect the political topics debate between the moderators was already going on behind the scenes prior to my gripe thread.
With that said I apologize to all the members this has adversely affected, moderator or otherwise.
Well, if you want to talk politics with me (as I don't take offense that easily) feel free to PM me. I rather enjoy talking politics.

I know this is way off topic, but it just evoked a hilarious image in my head.
I just saw lots of small "far side'ish" kids running around with flame throwers in a pit.
On a more serious note, as much as I love politics, I dont think a warhammer site is the best place for them.

I like a good verbal scrum as much as the next person but I have to agree with Undie that this is probably not the place for it. If it does rear it's ugly head again I will with a slight tinge of regret abstain from it.
I hear voices...and they don't like you!
They were banned for the time for a very good reason, because like mentioned they are flame pits for people who obivously are wrong (thats a joke/truth comment about them). They were just aruging back and forth back and forth about whos right repeating the same thing. (o and I spam?) Now youve already started people coming on about the subject of politics and now this thread might turn into one itselfs and than the universe will implode!
To make it short dude, I see your point, people deserve a speech but look at your posts your saying that basicly american is the best place in the world? Now I'm not saying they arnt powerful (o you have also won some other titles to) I'm just saying that because your not taking other peoples veiws into concideration other people will post there views unknowingly not taking your view either, now you got to guys aruging whos better, than the whole thing because a "flame pit" and thats partialy why (I think) they have been banned (dont know how long, ugluk said a week, go look up at his post)
Now please don't try to spam me, I am taking everyones point of veiw.
O and uberloz it aint your fault, its most peoples fault and mine to. We have created this world but now we must fix it, we must rid it of its problem. <grabs a gun> rid it of humans... [/coolmusicinsert] Also uglok, calling someone a Billy bad butt aint gonna solve anything but you have a point :blink:
Now can't we all just get along?
VERY well said valhallan , i believe the reason for the banning of it is because of , and listen to this one please , the rite to free speech is one of the greatest rites we have the privilage of having , these political threads ( not all but most ) go against this rite , telling people whats right or wrong is how you go about saying things , in conclusion , i agree with valhallan , political discusions are invitations into " flame pits " .
- Mojo -
P.S , that post was IMO , because i tend to live strongly by that rite .

You guys all make good points.
Honestly I don't get why people can't just chill.
I can't believe it when I see someone feeling threatened by someone else on the other end of a computer who thinks something different. They are probably not even in the same country as you, you will never meet each other, and if either of you was in a position of power great enough to actually change the world in accordance with your opinions you wouldn't have enough time to be posting on a Warhammer forum. You wouldn't even have time to play Warhammer you'd be in too many meetings!
So why does a difference of opinion even matter? So what if someone says your country is crap? Does them saying that actually change anything? Of course not!
Why can't people just think to themselves "Wow, that guy is misinformed. Oh well, none of my business."
If you really want to change someone's mind flatter them and use reasonable arguments, and whatever you do don't tell them they are entirely wrong. Everyone believes what they do for a reason, and if their reason is "because my government said so" they should be treated with especial care because they have obviously never critically analyzed the situation before.
My guess is these people don't really want to change other's minds through discussion. They want to insult others in a consequence free environment. This means they are nothing but bullies. Why be scared of a bully who cannot see or touch you? Why even acknowledge their existence? It's pointless.
It is a pity we can't talk politics because I think wargamers are usually historically aware intelligent people and now I can't hear any of your opinions because some people are afraid of others being different fom them. If you can't talk politics in a mature way it means you are terrified of the unknown.
Thanks, sorry about the long post.
