    An old tired Horse called the Lounge

    Since the decision of the moderators, the Lounge has become a stale place where threads get started and then are bound to die abruptly very likely because they end up delving in the very issues that have been prohibited.

    This sanitation in addition to being offensive to people who like to express their thoughts and feelings has made the Lounge now, more than ever, a grotesque distortion of what it was before.
    I wonder if it has passed in the moderator's mind to just shoot the animal out of its misery and give it back its dignity.

    The lounge is/was a black eye for this forum.

    Are you so desperate to talk politics that this is the only place for you to do it?

    Yeah.

    It was fascinating to share opinions with people who share a common interest. There are no other forums where we could discuss these issues with people we know like this.

    The little old ladies who got their undergarments in a wad over the lounge could simply ignore it. And the occasional stark raving mad asshole could get banned, just like the trolls who hawk sneakers and iPods elsewhere on this site.

    It's all for naught anyway. The Fairness Doctrine will shut down dissent and the IRS will soon tax the for sale section retroactively, forcing the site's owners into bankruptcy.

    I honestly don't get it! There were only a handfull of you guys going at each other - how hard can it be to create your own little political chatroom? Why do you have to do this here?

    And why do you feel the need to police it? Isn't that kind of strange?

    We did over at Yahoo, but it ain't the same. It's sort of a pain to leave here go there and then come back. Believe it or not, some of my favorite people here were the ones I had "heated" discussions with. You can learn a lot about a person's character especially when you don't agree.

    Though the environs were a bit lewd, crude, and rude at times, a visit here used to be a great sociological experience. Now all we can do is compare black and chrome cameras!

    we should post the entire "Lounge" into this thread: post "Something Dead"

    Fantasy post:"Black model versus Woody"
    "my faux wood-grain Wista camera just got beat out by a sexy black model"

    (oh, soooo easily taken out of context... any takers? )

    while we are ridiculing the forum, we could at least have a wee bit of fun (Jabberwocky)

    ...and, why do people sense the need to tell others where they should talk, when the moderators have already nutured the rhetoric here? sheesh, get a life...

    That's "neutered" not "nurtured", right?
