When I was in 4th grade, I had a keychain that read, "Everybody has the right to be stupid, but you're abusing the privilege."

I'm still protesting the illegal banning of Raw Rice....
who was the greatest thread starter in the history of ISH....
these suburban morons were light years behind his vision for the website..
If these fools would have only listened to him...
some hot chicks would be using this message board...
And that is precisely what these lame juicey fruits are afraid of....

You realize the right to free speech only means you have the right to say what you want without fear of arrest. No one says you have the right to spout out at the mouth without being kicked out of a private community.

I'm in protest of getting banned also, & I also dont like it when my comments or threads get erased. It almost seems like you cant remotely disagree with anyone on here without having someone complain about your post. I understand that some things are not appropriate but why is it that if I disagree with a LeBron dunk not being as good as every one else is making it out to be, my comment gets erased? I have also wondered if the Mods erase certain things they disagreed with just because they themselves are fans of the team that a comment is being posted about.

I think that with anything you have to have a balance of opinions in order to make the discussion a valid one. I just wished some of y'all just quit complaining to the Mods for stuff that is'nt even worth their time reviewing!!!

Actually, if you follow the forum guidelines that have been defined by this site, I doubt you would ever get banned. Did you consider that as an option?

Yes I have read and followed the forum guidelines and I myself have only been banned once but why do certain post get erased???

The "Guidelines Thread" says stuff like "CONTRIBUTE INTELLIGENT, THOUGHTFUL POSTS TO THIS BOARD" and
"BE NICE TO PEOPLE. BE FRIENDLY AND COOL"
. I agree with stuff like that but what the Mods and Posters have to understand is that being friendly is interpreted by the person on the receiving end of it, in other words, what I think is friendly others may not. Y'all have to understand that we all come from different cultures here and we all like to get our points across in different ways.

Jeff can ban you simply if he just hates you, get over it. He is reasonable so there is no point to this thread.

Good point. When someone enters my house I expect them to tongue-bath my boots. Lots of people don't and it gets pretty frustrating. I've had to choke one of my neighbors at least four times over it. And the bastard will still ask to borrow my hammer afterwards. One day I'm going to "lend" it to his forehead.

question to the thread starter>>

why do you keep coming back? you get banned, you aren't convinced on why, and most importantly no one seems to respect you on this board. so why bother to come back?
