Just as I expected, my 600/450 post was deleted after 20 hours and 147 recommendations, "due to profanity". The profanities were quotes from messages by posters on the PA board that were allowed to stand as posted, but were found to be a no-no when referencing them. So let's try this again, with some euphemisms in place of the offending words.

"No kidding. I'd just measured it and that's what it is: 600/450 and rising

Why? Because after 28 hours and 65 recommendations, my "Miss Cameltoe Universe" post was deleted with a stern reminder about adhering to "community standards".

Mind you, these are the same community standards that supports both a "Christian Fools" and an "Atheist Fools" board, and pay lip service to open discussions, debate and opinions, whose net result are "Bush is a rectum!" type of posts adorning the top of the "Best of" list on a daily basis: high standards indeed.

But it also appears to be a standard that tacitly accepts solitary shouts of displeasure by namby-pamby misfits, mama's boys and moral fanatics lurking behind keyboards in the dark, dingy ratholes of back-alley apartments, and passively submit to their whiny wishes by deleting any post supposedly ruffling their delicate feathers.

It's OK to say that the President eats excreta, the Pope is an alternate life-style nazi and the U.S. is a terrorist state, but let a singular wrinkle appear on a bikini bottom, and the displeasure of one suddenly overrules the enjoyment of the rest. How in hell can you adhere to a standard this vague?


P.S. I want my 147 recs back.
