You had one thread closed and then you go and start another one and here comes good ole notrees dipping in with something totally off topic.

I've not seen any good information on the AK forum when it comes to politics; it turns into lengthy arguments and name calling the minute someone disagrees. One side thinks their right and so does the other side and then one side will try to force their beliefs thinking everyone else is wrong; hmmm, makes me think I'm back in junior high school. There is a big difference in debating and in what goes on most of the time when politics comes into the picture.

Palin is gone....I figured once she was gone this would stop but it hasn't. And if anyone thinks they are being accused of being jealous of Palin then that's on them. It's actually more of an obsession and some kind of strange hatred for her going on which I just don't get. I don't see her as any kind of a threat in the political world.

Have you talked to the mod/s as to why those threads were closed? Because whether someone complained or not, they got out-of-hand.
Lets get something straight.....the points above, pat attempted to make, are pure fiction

Pat....when ya read posts it helps to comprehend what you read....just say'in

She was towing a large cargo trailer and written in the dirt on the back of the trailer was "Montana or Bust"

Now thats progress ain't it...

I mean, there are threats and that's a different story, but name calling?
Hm, maybe you deserve some of it...

( "you" in general, the discussion participants )


And your point is ? ? The point is "why" are the threads being closed....

If you have a problem with what he's posted, take it up with him, please. And please note that I don't attempt to hold you responsible for whatever one of your "friends" post.


Well it can be clearly seen that "notrees" hijacked the topic off by posting the healthcare video. This can't be denied. And if I have a problem with him or anyone else I have no problem letting them know. I'm not holding you responsible for what a friend of yours wrote...but lamblast him for veering off topic which may get the thread closed...who knows.


[QUOTE=Metlakatla;10362036]In the past I have done so and have since realized the absolute futility of that. By the same token, I've been called just about every name in the book on this forum, had personally identifying information posted by a psycho ***** and got no response when I reported the post and had to DM the moderator about it before anything was done. There are still posts here slamming my son that I reported that were never removed and still exist here but God forbid someone should breathe in the wrong octave towards a friend of a mod. I've also been followed to another forum by a moderator where people were comparing notes about CD; that was about as lame as it gets. Seems that the reporting option only works for some people.[/quote]

I don't recall ever seeing personal info about you posted or about your son being slammed; both of those should have obviously been addressed. I have contacted a mod but it was because I made a comparison to "my" post being deleted which was basically the same as what some others were. As far as I'm concerned, fair is fair, but doesn't always work that way. It does appear some are good buddies with the mod/s. I've had many of my posts deleted but anymore I take it with a grain of salt.

"You" hijacked the thread with the health care mess.

If I'm not mistaking, Ms. Pats point is not so much that Notrees (and others) introduce politics into your threads, but more so that whenever it happens, the thread blows up and some people cant or wont see how it got started to begin with.

...my apologies Ms. Pat if I am off base.
You are exactly right TB.....the point I was "trying" to put across, but some want to argue just for the sake of arguing.
