I tend not to go on political threads. It's not like you are going to change anyone's mind. Most seem to be like a drunken couple fighting. You just wish they would hurry up and divorce, or shag. I did once post a thread in the Lake that was political in nature, for which I was punted for a week. The funny thing is, it was about a vile Australian politician who would be anonymous to all but about 10 people in the Lake (Mr Potato Head). I just wanted to post as I was angry, and it was my way of lashing out and letting my feelings known. At the end of the day, that post said more about me than anyone else. I wouldn't be a Mod for quids. There is no doubt they are inconsistent in their adjudication. There are some members who get away with more than others. Some posts that might be pulled aren't. They have their favourites who they just ignore no matter what they say. I have generally been happy with that, as I think some members need more latitude. I saw a lot of what JF posted that led to his suspension. He was very angry and vocal in the Coronavirus thread. I agreed with his point of view and frustration. You would go back to the thread later and there was two pages less, as JF's posts and replies had been chopped. In the end JF reminded me of the boy who keeps being naughtier and naughtier, goading the parents until he gets a smack. I saw the changed signature. Then he was gone. I was lucky enough to jump on when Romeo made his appearance. It was fun. If the kids don't muck around whilst the teachers are out of the school room, then the world has become a sad place. The thread was always going to be axed. It was the next bit that made me sad. I posted the next day on the 'For those of you who have read my stories' thread that I felt like I was at the Moonlight Motel. I think Bosstralian and Ann and some others jumped on with their enjoyment of the previous day and the current sadness they were feeling. JF was never mentioned in the comments I saw. Next time I go back all JF threads seemed to be gone. That made me sad. I hadn't seen any criticism, just people expressing their feelings. I don't know JF outside of GL. I don't even know him that well on GL, though I have interacted with him plenty of times. I have not read his books and probably won't. What I value about him is that he lives a different life from me, and he provides me with a window into that life. It is the diversity of opinion and experience that I value from everyone. It makes your world bigger. Will you change my opinion, probably not. But I want to be opened up to what other people in other parts are thinking. Your feelings. Your experiences. I don't want an echo chamber. I already know what I think. I am still a member of GL but they won't be getting the big donation I gave last time. As for names, I love This Hard Land. Stay hard, stay hungry, stay alive. Cheers Kent Guitar .
