Dear Max: I very much deplore your strong language regarding Wordsmith.Bad mouthing him won't help us a bit. We don't know what Keiva was able to present as a defense. Perhaps he was able to use some form of legal intimidation. And there is still room for hope that when Jackie gets back, she may be able to act again, without being over-ruled.

I stand by every carefully chosen word in my post.

And I wish you weren't so right, but you are. I do hope that, as the tale unfolds, we learn that things aren't quite as bad as they seem. Right now they seem pretty bad.

DEar Max: I seriously question your judgement in choice of words. We are here as guests of Wordsmith's and not entitled to question, or criticize in offensive terms his decidions, the bases of which we cannot know. Your remarks are intemperate, and in very bad taste. Let us not have a flame war about this.

This certainly is grim; hate threatens to eclipse all else. It was always destined to end as such I suppose, like some ethereal dream, a Bach fugue, a divine stroll at dusk. All things race to an end sooner than one might like. And so I guess the sun beds down over this haven. This wayward child, nutured so arduously, has been accosted, solicited for petty and pathetic gain. This woe will only strengthen my resolve though. The hateful toil has given us a common and discernable enemy, know him well. But join now, unanimously in smothering the voice of destruction with melodious song of love. Can you hear that tune? It's like a big middle finger with a careless smile behind it looking beyond the now to new shores, and the promise of the infinite.

Excuse me, do I understand that some of you are operating under the illusion that this board is some kind of free speech democracy? If so, you are wrong. We are here under the whim of the creator of this board - anu - it is his board and we are his guests. Did some of you think otherwise? I think that by the nature of this setup that it was hoped that grown men and women by way of their intellect and wit, would find a way to police the disruptive amongst them.
Apparently not, some of you act and seem afraid that one monkey, keiva, single-handedly, can somehow stop the whole awad show. Did some of you skip Sunday School the day they read that part about loving your enemies?
I don't and I didn't.

Self-righteously yours,
Milo Washington.

the whim of the creator of this board

And if the whim of the creator of this board is to be the victim of the threat of a frivolous but expensive and time-consuming lawsuit?

Yes, i am a guest.. and as such, i am free to leave.

i might be directed to love my enemies, but no where does it say i have to go out of my way to associate with them.

i don't want to be threatened.. i feel i will be, sooner or later. so i don't want to be here.
