@ossobuco,
Go ahead, isolate yourselves.

You have had, as a group, and often individually, a lot of respect.

Stupid to leave.

@ossobuco,
Marco isn't about to remain on any site that allows any type of racism.

@Keith424,
Allows? 99.9% of the members participating here (particularly the sites originator) are agasinst racism.

OTOH, I've seen tons of respect and support for both guys here.

@Keith424,
That's certainly his judgment to make.

I don't think anyone wants him to be here if he doesn't want to be here.

@Keith424,
That, I guess, is the key factor, allowing some flying racism in posts.

Last thing I'd do is to try to say what the site owner thinks - but from observation over a lot of time, he expects stupidity to be argued with well.

@ossobuco,
I'd say confidently that RG is against racism.
That is not speaking FOR him at all (don't know whether or not your comment is directed to me.)
However, he has stated fairly often that he supports free speech.

@ossobuco,
And it's his site so he can do as he pleases with it. Many won't feel the same especially those whom have experienced racism snd bigotry in their daily lives,

@Keith424,
Not intending this as a debate...but...many here have experienced racism and bigotry. It's not like it's all that rare.

It has been my experience that the nature of this forum has been to encourage free speech. Sometimes in such fora, there are voices one would rather not hear. Hence the ignore feature and just plain scrolling past unpleasantness. If someone leaves due to some perception of racism, then a gross misunderstanding of how the forum free speech operates has occured.

Getting back to the subject, it would be a shame to see them go. Whatever works for them is good.

@Ragman,
No, not directed to you.
It would be hilarious/sad to think RG is for racism.
But newbodies don't just always get it, the free speech.

@Keith424,
You don't know this guy at all.

You are putting your own take on him, which is almost funny.

@ossobuco,
Obviously many don't feel the same. About 30 I know alone.

@ossobuco,
You found a website where a lot of people like you, and some don't.

You are going to leave because some who don't like you say ugly ****.

You want ugly **** edited out by monitors.

This isn't practical or wise.


On the other hand, I guess none of us who have liked you matter a wit, you are doing a big toss, we are just figments.
This is fairly irritating.

@Keith424,
What do you know of the owner's life experience?

~~~

In any case, it doesn't matter. They have chosen to leave - that is their right.

There is a group of people that will miss Morgan.

The majority of the members of the site would have not have ever heard of him or seen his postings.

While it's regrettable that 2 or 10 or 20 people decided not to post here anymore, it's a blip in the overall life of the site.

@Ragman,
I agree with Ragman, you are supposing none of us have dealt with bigotry.

@hawkeye10,
Written by JCboy as of 11/13:

"I wasn’t going to post this but it just doesn’t seem right to just take off and leave without saying goodbye to a lot of you who have been very kind to me over the years but Marco and I have decided not to return to the forum.

We live in a small community where everyone knows everyone and their business. Ever since I started that DUI thread pretty much everyone in the community lurks here and that’s not always a good thing.

I’ve been here for six years, I use to only post a few times a year so who knows I just may show up someday to say hello to all of you, you’ve been very kind to me over the years and I thank you.
"

Funny thing is I see nothing written about racism and bigotry.

Pinocchio: your nose is growing. Laughing
