While I have enjoyed reading here, I have never felt comfortable posting because I have seen the gang mentality in action here when one goes against the grain.
I have lurked here for probably over a year at least and have seen so much that has made me bite my tongue. I have seen posts deleted because the authors views didn't coincide with the moderators and things to that effect.
I have seen people banned for differing views, especially if one doesn't follow lock-step and love Bush and Christianity.
I could hold back no more, and apologize if I have offended anyone. I'm just calling it like I see it.
Oh Yeah, Looking forward to Matt's next fight. Go Matt!
I know what you're talking about but it's not entirely true. I go against the grain quite often and they don't attack me. You can voice your own, differing opinions. You just can't do it in an attacking sort of way. That's when the "gang" gets defensive. Give it a try. I think you'll be fine.
