Ok calm down guys I was only kidding. See Bert, see what happens when you take away a mans boobies???
And while I was replying to this thread my lovely daughter found a permanent marker... all over her, the Lay Z Boy, carpet and numerous other things, in about 30 seconds.
No boobies, bad things happen! Its begun...
Im sending you the cleaning bill

Bert, is there anyway we can talk about this...
At least some disclosure of the decision making process?

It's about choice sir and the confines one finds themselves to choose.

Moreover it is the lack of information to make an informative choice and it's foregoing of any formal narrative to parties private or public.

In short.... respect if you please.

Too many good people on this forum to care about "T&A" being pulled or politics and religion. Look at what we have done on this site! Bought Ken a bike, Raised money for cancer fight, swaped and give needed parts, freely given unlimited information, eh have seen death and life. I love this forum. It is like a home to me. So now its a little cleaner. Big whoop. My brothers are still here and memories of friends lost haunt these pages. I guess I am defensive of the XLFthat has given me 6 years almost here. Lots of laughs, arguements, and tears. So I back Bert with what he chooses to do, he still runs the best forum I have been a part of. Peace, love, and motor oil.

Just doesn't make any sense to me. It was like a private club which really had no public access. I understand the offensive avatar part because avatars are "public". It is true this is "Bert's playground and he can do what he wants" but the lame reasons bother me. I didn't like the PR forum so shortly after joining I removed myself from it. Problem solved. Just don't make sense. But hey, maybe I am the oddball here ... won't be the first time.
Count me in your oddball group. But its the way most things work now days. The few will not be satisfied until the many are forced/legislated/litigated to think and or act as they do.

I sometimes get offended here and elsewhere but my offense does not trump your opinion. Thomas Jefferson said it best and it can be applied to things other than religion.

Ahhh a Rush fan. A song I often bring up in "equality" political discussions
Many of their songs have a political narrative..........a narrative I agree with.

I was gone for awhile also, have seen everything from subtle to blatant racism. Things seem to be going in the right direction, imo, so I paid up and came back. I have no problems whatsoever with rules, as long as they are equally and fairly enforced.

the lack of respect some folks have shown to Bert about this issue is very sad.

I equate this to asking somebody if you can ride their bike, and if they say no you, throw a hissy fit.
