Also seems to me the moderator needs to loosen his belt up a notch.  If it becomes to much of a chore for him, I feel reasonably confident several of us forum members would pitch in and purchase the site from him.

The moderator doesn’t own the site, Dennis and Sally do and BJ stated numerous times it’s a family friendly site, it’s as if the Meisners invited us in to their home. In the 23 years I’ve been on here the last couple have been on par with the actions around the world sniping and arguing.

I have not read it lately. It's all available other places, I see no reason for it here as it only makes it harder for BJ to rein in .

I think in the past the foul language and risqué nature of the mostly copied and pasted Farcebook memes has been the end of the various joke threads (my opinion) There were several today that dealt with the racial equalities that have been in the news lately. That takes the thread down a different path than normal jokes and irregardless of whether or not it offends you or me it could offend someone. That isn’t needed here. I’ve met BJ in person multiple times. He calls it how he sees it, which is exactly what he is asked to do. If the moderator sees it as over the line then that’s how it is. Being here is a privilege after all. Being a moderator is generally thankless but someone has to do it.

Reminds me of when Gomer Pyle and Duke Slater screwed up, the whole platoon suffered.

You mean when Duke usually talked Gomer into doing something that if in any way it could go wrong, it would and make Sgt. Carter even more angry than normal??   😄

I can still hear Sgt. Carter saying "Pyle, you lame brain, you idiot, you numb skull! MOVE MOVE MOVE!"

I don’t even have FB.  If I add something it was sent to me by someone else and that’s normally 2-4weeks after everyone in the world already saw it. I did not mean that to be a jab at anyone. I dont take offense very easily.

I was going to post this on the joke thread but I guess I can share it here. I took this picture today. Something looked a little different. Then I realized it’s plywood. The guy did a good job. If I was in Pennsylvania I might think it could be MTO’s handy work.

Your talking tailgate right? I can see guys doing that the darn things are expensive, I have two locks on mine, one so the gate can’t be slid out and run with and a locking handle, my gate is perfect as it comes out for 6 months of the year when the camper is on.

It's not a matter of "if you can't handle it and don't want it we'll take it off your hands"

It's THEIR PROPERTY! And therefore their rules, plain and simple. It doesn't come down to "if you can't stomach it, you have a problem". They don't WANT TO stomach it because they don't like it. That's all the reason a moderator needs. Don't like it? Create a website of your own and everyone wins. You could even call it BuzzFeed and just fill it with time wasting half funny reposted memes and slideshow clickbait!

This website is private property, they make the rules and we abide them. It makes zero difference what they are. Again, not complicated.

 

Further, just because someone can "stomach" something, or doesn't get offended themselves, doesn't mean they have to deal with it. A little tact, judgement, and discretion is all that's asked. It's ponderous how that doesn't sink in.

I can tell you that if it were my forum and people didn't follow my rules, it wouldn't be just the content that's removed, but the whole account. I've been impressed with the moderators patience.

^^^This is what gets me, the ass kissing, it is so obvious.  Have some respect for yourself 

Me? Not a bit. I just can't stand rudeness.

As you know I have been limiting my time on social media including this site. Therefore I have not read the joke thread for some time as it cuts into my meagre time reading the quality posts and obviously the most desperate of all porn.

Red tractor Porn 🤣🤣🤣🤣

 

But even though I  haven't read the posts at the end of the day the rules is the rules and we should abide by them or face the consequences.

And I am the first to admit that I may have bent the rules in the past.

The joke thread was the first thing I checked daily and then I moved on.

I hope it comes back but unsure all can follow the rules.

I'm sure I violated them, or could be accused of it, in someones opinion?

Posterior kissers can be spotted from a long distance.  Rudeness, please this is a talk forum not a Miss Congeniality contest.

If I were kissing anyone's backside, wouldn't there be something in it for me? I've never met the forum owners or moderators (or nearly any users from this forum) and I get nothing out of taking anyone's side. Check your premises.

There’s a certain generation of forum users that have no idea how a forum generates revenue , 

are not on any other forums so they don’t know edicate, 

are so thin skinned that they shouldn’t even be on a forum,

Are not as wise as they think they are , 

must be living in moms basement, 

should be living in moms basement , 

are more concerned about finding a spelling error then the topic itself, 

proud as finding a baby in a basket floating in a river when they find a  spelling  error , 

sitting with their fingers on the keyboard ready to pounce on the band wagon about something they weren’t asked about, 

dont have a life outside the WWW 

watched a U-tube  2  minute poorly done  documentary  and now their an expert. 

And just plain should stay off the Internet but they wont so you just have to learn to read between the lines and ignore certain members.
