I shot this in a PM to the Admin who locked it. JT doesn't like me anyways, so I don't care if I piss himoff! biggrin.gif
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Nice.

Whether it was a Admin group decision or not, doesn't matter. It has been done.

http://www.thirdgen.org/techboard/problems...re-changed.html

While I do agree a couple of the posts were getting out of hand of DISCUSSION politely, I do disagree with GOD being hidden & the thread being locked.

While the site may be company owned, it isn't a business. It is in PUBLIC DOMAIN. Ownership does not make something private.

I guess we should all throw our money away? It has GOD printed on it.

And, while yes, I AM religous (Methodist), I DO believe in the one true GOD above. I will defend the use & fightthe censorship of the WORD on TGO....

To defend the use of the WORD, I will say this...It is up to the person that hears it, to define it. My guess is, Satanists think of Satan as THEIR god. Worshipers of Allah think of him as god. There are lots of "gods".......by the word.

By censoring it, TGO has brought it to the front. How many complaints of his sig did TGO get, on the use of the word GOD? I'd bet zero.

Would my daughter's name be censored in a sig. Her name is Trinity. You know, as in Father, Son, Holy Ghost...

Hmm, I wonder if they bleep out also the word Allah?
If not, then I'd attack them even more viciously. They can't ban ONE religious word over another! lol.gif
Damn hypocrites. smile.gif

Cranford, I'd say leave them alone. Some people just need to make themselves feel powerful and they have their own ways that we won't understand.
Aren't you glad that our board isn't so messed up? smile.gif

It's obvious they did it in an attempt to avoid conflict. I don't have a problem with the admins' decision. TGO is owned by a company, as you stated, and they can do with it as they want.

I agree, Matt, but the funny thing is that they censor SO MANY words that sometimes it's hard to read a post, not knowing what was bleeped out.
And again, just out of curiosity, does anyone want to test if they bleep out "Allah"? lol.gif

TGO seems pretty fuckd up these days they do a lot of censorship. Members should just start putting God Bless at the end of everything they say and if they start fucking with the name God shoot them another name for the Creator.

Allah = God...its just in Arabic, the language of the prophets. The same God as Christianity and Judaism The God of Abraham, Issac, David, Jesus, etc..

I am new to the boards. I have been a member on TGO for a few years, but never post (same user name). I had a 91 RS a few years back.

I saw that thread the other day. I thought it was strange that it could be in the title but not in the signature. Maybe they will re-think the issue.

I don't like their board very much, unless I am looking for some technical inforamtion. That pause for the advertisement before you can see the threads is very annoying. Maybe being a national board, it does not seem as friendly as others.

I think, if you are NOT logged in (i.e. visiting as Anonymous), TGO shows advertisements and such. Some boards just show an ad after EVERY post, some boards actually force a pause in the page load where they show a "message from the sponsor" and then show you the thread etc. There are numerous ways to force annoying ads onto people. Afterall, that's why TGO was bought in the first place, to make money from ads. Many boards have suffered the same changeover.

I stand with the TGO staff on this one.

They have rules, they have filters, and the guy started a ruckus. His thread was locked, and even after attacking the site he was not banned, so I don't see a problem

A TGO is not public domain, public domain is pictures, books, movies, art that are for free use by the public. TGO is a tech depository, a place for people to discuss cars, it is no form "the peoples". Yes, people are the whole reason its around, and the sole place that all the information is gathered, but if TGO decides to shut the doors, thats their call, and all those people's work will disappear.

That said,,,,,

Arn't you glad we don't have shitty rules wink.gif

OK.....The cencorship hasbeen lifted. I know this because I added it to my sig, no ***.

What I DO notice though...My PM to the Moderator has been DELETED. That means a Mod on TGO went into MY PMs & deleted it. I certainly didn't!
