Oh good god. Okay. Here's an exercise in censorship. This isn't even all that funny, but I know the posters here will appreciate this whole thing. I was BANNED from the nbc.com message boards for posting the following in the Passions forum: |
"What was Sheridan wearing today? With her black striped top, short black skirt, black stockings and black go-go boots, she looked like a British streetwalker, circa 1969."
That's the comment that got me banned. I previously got a "warning" for stating something to the effect that "Lindsay Hartley may be joining her hubby soon on the unemployment line."
But don't pity me--as far as I'm concerned, it is a badge of honor to be booted out of a place for such a totally frivolous comment. I know they have a rule on there that says you cannot mock the actors. I wasn't. I was mocking Sheridan's clothes, not Mackenzie's integrity! Notice the kinds of threads in that forum. They're pointless. It's all "Team Theresa," "Team Lancy," etc. There's even a "Team Jesus" thread in there. They're all so glib; meaningless. really. That's probably because they end up censoring all the interesting posters (like me, :lol: snicker!).
I believe that that kind of overzealous moderation is a sickness that is taking over the internet. I know I'm a newbie here, but if the mods here ever think I'm out of line, just tell me like a human being and don't cite rules that are too general in the first place. (Rest assured; I believe the guidelines in this particular forum are not offensive to we lovers of Freedom of Speech).
