Of course, they ostracize any poster who disagrees with their arrogance. Case in point, the comments by this “banned” Dreamie.

Thanks, and you are welcome. Lately, most of their discussions are reserved for their chat room, and they have ‘sanitized’ their comments. Their posts used to be very vulgar, as well as racist; not exactly exemplifying "good moral character."

Same here. They are sooooo welcoming.

Interesting, and hopefully I won't get "flagged to a mod" by one of you for this comment, but:

You don't think the opposite holds true here?

How come this forum is so "anti" dominated? Only what like 2 posters here that offer a differentiating view are still here over the last 3 years? While the antis hold this ground solid with taking maybe 2 bans?

Honestly I try to offer an unbiased perspective and I still get dinged by Mods here, not blaming them but it does seem like the "antis" flag posts that offer even the least bit of confrontation.

Remember the great poster Crisp444? How the core of you antagonized him for being "too young to have an opinion"...yet I don't remember any of you being banned for that and there should have been heads rolling.

For the record, I have never “flagged” a pro-illegal poster for comments I have received, even the blatant personal attacks. However, I have reported obvious pro-illegal trolls. I don’t believe any pro-illegal has been banned simply for expressing an opposing view, unlike DAP and similar forums. They ban posters even if you are polite and simply express an opinion. As a matter of fact, it is against TOS at DAP to disagree with their stance on illegal immigration.

Edit: I have also reported offensive comments made by anti-illegal posters.

I am a very polite poster, yet all of my warnings and infractions come from this forum. And, I have seen other very polite posters on the differing side that do get banned in the long run..."pro_logic" was one.

Why post here at all?

Well I better leave this thread before it goes too off-topic and someone flags me.

Tow quick notes here:

#1: many of the anti's who were out-and-out racists and/or tend to embellish things (i.e. 20-40 million illegals vs. ca. 10-12 million) are no longer here.

#2: most of the pro illegal types were derogatory Trolls with the notable exception of you most of the time, zacatacana, and 1-2 others.

You know, I have thought the same on our side. I have seen some pro posters in here who IMO should have been banned but they weren't. I have taken my licks by the moderator in here and rightly so. I just know when I have crossed the line and try not to cross it anymore.

Perhaps the reason that you see more anti's remain in here is because they tend to remain more civil? I think many pro's know that they don't have any viable arguments so there is no point in debating what they know is the truth anyway. They tend to hang out in forums and blogs where they can high five each other and where the moderators aren't fair but biased instead towards any opinion of an anti. That has been my experience anyway.

I do remember you accusing me of being someone who was banned before and that simply wasn't true.

Sorry for replying to the off topic remarks but the truth needs to be told.

Wasn't it you and Benicar et al that teamed up on Crisp444? Who was a remarkable poster by the way, but you forced him out with your condescending ways.
