Travis: if you have ANY thoughts regarding the post I have just made, please keep them to yourself whatever they are and on whichever side of the issue of suicide.

If you don't want to have something you post addressed, then you shouldn't post it. This is a publicly accessed forum and replying to each other is what is done here.

My only thought on the post you just made was "it sure is nice to see that you have a softer side."

I'm just not going to lose any sleep over some convicted drug dealer taking his own life.

Sure Mark was facing some jail time but why kill yourself over 6 months in the county jail? 25 years to life, I can understand that. Was he maybe facing his 3rd strike?

If you don't want to have something you post addressed, then you shouldn't post it. This is a publicly accessed forum and replying to each other is what is done here.

When I posted about my friend who had committed suicide and then asked you to keep any thoughts about my post to yourself I had two thoughts about the way you might respond to it.

1) was the way you did respond.
2) was with a smart aleck remark aimed at my friend being gay and/or having committed suicide.

The first one strikes the right note in that posting and replying is what the forum is about, however there are exceptions that occur. It has been seen more than once that if a post doesn't meet your approval (for whatever reasons, logical or not) it gets deleted. I have even seen other peoples posts that you have edited. I saw them both before and after the edits and couldn't comprehend why the editing took place.

The second reason I cited just above came as a result of having seen over the last two years your comments about both blacks and gays which were "cloaked" in "humor". Quite often you say "just kidding" at the end of your statements. There is a fairly prevalent thought that when someone says something there is at least a "degree" of actual intent contained no matter what "just kidding" kind of statement might be attached.

If there is one Constitutional amendment I admire it is that of free speech, but I do realize that gatekeepers tamper with it on a regular basis in all kinds of media. Doesn't mean I have to sanction it.

My request that you not comment on my gay friend's suicide was aimed at not having a stranger make any kind of disparaging remark either about suicide or sexual proclivity, but your response gave me an opportunity to speak in a broader sense, and for that, well, thanks!

You're starting to sound like Jodi Arias's attorney the way you're twisting things out of proportion. What's next MovieMan, are you going to start telling people that I kick puppies too?

I only delete things that are disruptive to the forum. I have only deleted a hand full of posts in the past 4 months, most of which were spam, posted in the wrong category, disruptive, sexually provocative or contained inappropriate language.

I have never said anything negative about black or gay people and it really bothers me that you would even suggest that.

If you did kick puppies, yes, I would tell people that. [/b]

And of course that is a matter of opinion and each and everyone of us is entitled to an opinion. Most of us just can't do anything about it.

No, you have never called someone a N***** or a F******, but your innuendo cloaked in humor (imo) is there and even other members here have commented on it in the past.

Just as teachers, law enforcement, religious figures and others are expected to answer to a higher standard than "Joe Six-pack" one might expect that a figurehead of any organization would be called upon to do the same. Of course I could be wrong about that; I have been wrong before.

I do believe you have me mixed up with Travis.

You must be confused and taking something you read out of context.

I've been called worse...LOL   Just for the record, I don't actually kick puppies. I know that there are some people out there who don't understand sarcasm, so I just wanted to be clear before someone emails me saying "that's so mean, how could you do that to those sweet little animals." 

Besides, the puppy kicker is an essential part of the team.  ;D
