In other words, they're trying to keep this board friendly. If you can post in a friendly manner, no doubt your posts will stand. Spitting hatred and venom doesn't go over big around here.


Ahhh! Dissention is a form of marketing (“It's a floor wax!” “No it isn't, it's a dessert.”) and, as in my post to Twitty saying more razzmatazz is needed, a means to increase the hoopla surrounding The Feste Carpe diem.

Time now to splash this across TMF in banner headlines:

'Posts zapped at Feste as tempers flare. Film at eleven. Planet Xeenu becomes repository of spitted hatred and venom.'

'Un-named poster says that un-named Feste nominee is un-nameable for the Award. Unidentifiable film at eleven.'

'Can the Feste be saved from being lost in a haze of smut? Phlegm at eleven.'

And what could be my favorite:

Susan Lucci threatens TMFTwitty with beating if her man Michael is shut out of The Feste Award. Fists at eleven.'

Whatever, that there's dissention is not a bad thing even though this here isn't PA, or, as I call it, 'The Land of Grayed-Out Posts'. When I found that one nominee was a gray person I shrugged. Life is full of surprises. Life is also full of prizes also but not all get them.

As for this dissenting poster these words: if you write in such a manner that this board expects. i.e., with some literati leaning, your posts won't be pulled. You could have said, “If you're going to give him a berth, make it a wide one,” and everyone would understand.

Saying %^#$&)(@#_$)_@ isn't the way.
