    If your post is an attempt to school me may I suggest you reread my original post starting this very topic. To save you having to go find it I am reposting it here for you. Please note the red highlighted areas:

    The "Pet Peeve" topic was for the most part a good natured exchange of pet peeves. With a few guys chastising one for some LA bashing it got little off track. But "BOOM!" that gets locked down pretty quick.

    On the other hand we can have people in here reeking havoc with personal attacks and the constant use of profanity with repeated reports of that activity go unanswered for days or even weeks at times.

    YES, I understand they own this site. YES, I understand they can do as they please. But being the suspicious guy that I am I can't help but wonder if the post count has more to do with something getting locked down than the activity. These sites run on post count, they sell advertising based on post count, and obviously controversial topics increase post count. I believe sometimes topics only get shut down when enough of the regulars that keep this site alive say ENOUGH ALREADY, shut this down.

    Merry Christmas...
    I hope you had a Merry Christmas.

    Crazy, but that's how it goes
    Millions of people living as foes
    Maybe it's not too late
    To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

    The F-word is possibly the most versatlie word in the English languauge. It can express pleasure, pain, shock, surprise, anger, resignation, joy, frustration, disgust, a friendly greeting, and so much more.

    I concur!!!!

    While the use of the F-Bomb it is frowned upon on the fireground.... sometimes it has to be used for emphasis in conjunction with the evacuation signal!

    you think this thread from the webteam is applicable as much today as it was when it was first posted? http://www.firehouse.com/forums/t40228/ (The Forums & Moderation (and In Moderation))
    If my basic HazMat training has taught me nothing else, it's that if you see a glowing green monkey running away from something, follow that monkey!
