just kidding. If ur talking about Xcali and 40 they have been having heated debates about finances. I think they must each be retired accountants or something. Each has been name calling, but coco sounds kinda mild to me

I've posted about this before, and unfortunately some will continue with the juvenile antics. When reading the posts where people do this, my reading stops when I hit it. Both sides, regardless....

I am fine with not allowing the name calling, I am a mod on a forum with zero tolerance for calling other members names, it makes the forum a much nicer place. That does not include organizations or public figures. I have a theory about why the conservatives are so sensitive to calling Fox "news" Faux. You can refer to any other news organization any way you want and no one, as far as I know even notices. But call it Faux and the conservobots on the other forum are hitting the report button. Anyway, calling fellow members names is far different than calling an organization or public figures some other term.

No, I don't think it is. I view calling it Faux news in the same as mutilating Obama's name, or calling Republicans Repugnicans, Democrats Demorats.

It's childish and unnecessary.

Sure it is, you are correct. But calling other members names is a much more personally offensive atmoshpere that runs thin skinned members off. Yea, I completely agree with you. It is childish, and I am one of the worse offenders when it comes to Fox, I have to concentrate not to spell it with an x.

which nobody says jack about except within threads and then nothing comes of it. it's like I'm going against the 1st amendment if it's the other side, but when libs do it it's a big deal. and the names TC is complaining about aren't that bad. teabilly reference was a joke throw back to a former member, and it was refreshing to see it given back (also when Az was here) but you see what happened to him.
TC probably doesn't use name calling but neither do our republican friends here see any thing wrong with the snides pointed at libs and dems. Like calling Mikeyy Mickey and referring to someone as feminine who is clearly male.
It takes precedent from commentators like Rush Limbaugh who played the Boll Weevil Song when he talked about Jessie Jackson and people who listen to him say he's just being funny but whenever I turn around and call him Brush Lintball I know it drives some of those folks crazy.
And call Obama whatever but reference to the drug store cowboy or Dubya will send them into a spin.
In conclusion I think the anti Obama crowd is mighty thin skinned while the pro Obama crowd has been through the trenches and has become tough.
All in all I don't want a completely censored forum.
\but that's just one opinion.
