Can we get a poll on what regular members think i the new rules?  

1.   Like

2.  Dislike

3.  Its no fun not being able to call each other names?

I think it was entertaining to watch Straw meltdown over the new rules.

True.   Actually - I like the new rules.  Less posting overall - but it maintains some order and discipline.

What are the new rules? I was aware of only one - the no name calling one.

and I'm in favor of that rule.

No name calling, baiting, stalking, or trolling.

would be better if they simply said no personal insults.

Ironically enough, if less posting is the result of the new rule(s), then you are the one most affected by it. In other words, the same effect could have been achieved if you simply decided to post less.

I see the virtue in both approaches, which is why I think we ought to alternate between the two from time to time. We can even sync up our rules with the political season, either creating a flurry of getbig verbal violence during an election OR forcing civility during the election and having a free-for-all offseason, depending upon our preference(s).

Like I was the only one.

Whether you were the only one or not is irrelevant. If you had decided to voluntarily stop posting, the volume of posts on this board would have fallen dramatically. That's an indisputable fact. You were, single-handedly, responsible for a very large volume of posts (arguably, the largest) on a day to day basis.

Now couple that with the fact that the vast majority of your posts lacked any substance, being mindless copy-paste jobs, while the rest were nothing more than attacks on Obama and those who were were challenging your positions or attempting to debate you.

The result would have been that if you simply stopped posting, the volume of posts would have gone down, the amount of personal insults would have gone down and the average quality of posts would have gone up.

I have a problem with censorship and if someone is a racist moron I dont need someone telling me a sanitized and "acceptable" way of telling them so.

I also have an issue with enforcement being selective and arbitrary

This board took care of itself just fine prior to the change

Fuck the new rules.

This board ( just like this country) has become so pussified its pathetic.

This is getbig.com-- not the church ladies muffin club.

I'm sure that morbidly obese moderator Hugo Chavez has his stubby fingerprints all over this one.

Who decided upon these new rules?

By the way, everyone that's posted in this thread is a homosexual and I've had improper relations with all of your dead moms' cold vaginas.



Wait a minute....

Regarding internet censorship just ask yourself, What should a free man do?

After all.....
