  • A Note to Fllawdog

    In your Topic, "A note to our new members", you make the statement, "America, by far, is the greatest country there is. We're not perfect, but damn we're good" and then you use your position to close the topic.

    I would remind you that there is life outside of America and that many of your "New Members" come from countries that they would regard as being the greatest.

    I for one, regard Australia as the greatest country there is, but I usually keep that opinion to myself and not go beating my chest in a public forum to people who are from other countries.

    And that, my friend is your opinion. This is mine. I love America and I'm not ready for it to end up in the hands of those that the topic was directed towards. If you took offense to my statement, sorry, but I'm not apologizing for making it.

      I love America...

      ..but if I had the opportunity to go anywhere in the world it would probably be Germany.

      That's where the christmas tree came from you know.

          I think the guys point was that Fl locked the thread after his reply.

          edit:
          But I wouldn't apologize either.

            Ozcop,

            Although I'm not a moderator on this particular forum, I am on staff here. And speaking as a staff member I want to tell you something:

            Lawdogs remarks were not intended to bash anyone else. However we did go through a period of time here about a year and a half to two years ago when we had some folks who were bashing America pretty bad. In fact we wound up have a real pizzing contest between an Australian and some of our members from the US.

            I can tell you that this is NOT going to be tolerated again. As I said, no one was bashing anyone with Lawdogs post.

            We can and do BAN members when they start bashing. We went for months before, trying to smooth things over. It did not work, and some members got banned. Other just got angry and left.

            Again, it just is NOT GOING TO BE TOLERATED. I know that you were not doing any bashing in your post here, so don't misunderstand me. I just want this on record as being what our stance is.

            We appreciate our members from ALL OVER THE WORLD. We want them to feel free to express their opinions, as long as it does NOT deteriorate into name calling, bashing and general pizzing contests.

              The new members I was adressing that post to were hell bent on trying to tell us how great a country this would be under anarchy, socialism and communism. My post was done as a result of trying to put out fires in several topics at the same time as well as PM's and e-mails.

              There are two things that hold an extreme amount of passion with me...my chosen career and my country. I would hope you or anyone else feels that same way about your country.

              My post wasn't intended to start a chest thumping contest with members from other countries but rather to say that I, as an American, am not ready to see this country go to hell in a hand basket.

                    Isn't though, it's great!

                    Well I don't own a porsche but I do own a Jaguar. and nope don't drink beer, that must be a guy thing, huh?

                    Lady's like myself don't drink beer, especially while decorating the christmas tree on a six foot ladder.

                    But I have been known to use beer in making bread.
