Why Was That Deleted?
July 6, 2002 | happytobealive

Posted on 07/06/2002 3:32:36 PM PDT by happytobealive

Re: Men vs. Women post of a few minutes ago.

This was generating a huge response, which seems to indicate that it was an important topic.

Why isn't the reasoning for deletions made clear so that we know the ground rules better and can try and persuade the moderators when they seem to error?

I call them "Saturday classics". If you back a ways you'll see lots of moose-cheese-sister stuff on Saturdays last winter.

Nah, she's trying to imply that someone said that to her on the "marriage strike" thread.

Let's see... it sure sounds like misogyny when some moron can't come up with a better answer than 'You sound like an American woman who can't get a date.'

There've been quite a few personal barbs thrown in that thread, but I think if you look through it, you'll find that almost every barb thrown by a male is in response to a similar comment made by a woman. I cannot count on one hand how many times some female poster entered the thread and, apparently without reading the article, decided that "all you men" were "whining". I called 2 of them on it, they did not reply.

Yeah, there is a bit more treachery there than need be, but I suspect that more than a handful of the male posters have been raked over the coals in divorce court. I've seen it happen to some close friends which is why I choose to remain single. YMMV, of course.

"...what women see in George W is that he is a REAL MAN. He stands by his word, he loves his wife and family, he doesn't speak badly about people, and he doesn't whine if he doesn't get his way"

LOL....exactly why I've always said that "I LOVE this man. If we both weren't already married, I'd propose!"

He has a lot of qualities I find attractive in my own husband. I would like to add that STRENGTH, honesty and integrity are qualities they both share. IMO those qualities are very important.

However, I doubt the president has ever had to pound someone when doubling as security as well as being the ambulance driver at a concert, or had to pound someone in his capacity as bouncer, but the way GW conducted the pounding of the Taliban makes it seem they have THAT trait in common as well.

REAL men...gotta love 'em!

If I remember correctly, Tennessee_Bob had some legitimate gripes in that other thread. I don't think he (or anybody else for that matter) was expressing a "pure hatred" for women. BTW, I'm just speculating here but I suspect that thread you posted was deleted because you accused everybody in that thread of expressing "pure hatred" for women, which is an inflammatory accusation and just not true. I think the unfairness of the court system with respect to divorce and custody issues is fair game for discussion. It seems that any women can walk into a police station and destroy the life of her husband with a single false accusation of abuse. But God help the men who might have something to say about it in a public forum like this. Why they must be "women haters" according to you.

I've known you here for quite a while and I've never locked horns with you before. Your threads before today always seemed reasonable to me and I actually enjoy reading them. Evidently you have a hair across your you-know-what with this issue though! Though I admit, I also have a hair across my you-know-what with this issue because I have seen so many male friends and family members devastated by vindictive women. One close friend still cannot see his kids unsupervised by social workers (who treat him like a criminal), all this because his wife claims he slammed the door shut on her foot during an argument and swore at her in front of the kids.

I'm not saying that all the men are blameless in divorce. But to have a man denied access to his children because a door got slammed on his wife's foot? (He admits to slamming the door and swearing in anger but says she was ten feet away from the door when he slammed it.) This is just not right. For what it's worth, the argument that precipitated the slamming of the door was that the wife (after kicking him out of the house) refused to let him come into the house to pick some personal items up. Had she simply gotten him the stuff he wanted (which she had no use for), he would have left quietly. The wife was just looking to provoke a confrontation so she would have a reason to take out a restraining order against him and thus gain leverage in court. This happens all the time.

BTW, I know there are two sides to every story. But I know this side is true because I was the one who drove him to the house to get his stuff. I never saw him enter the house at anytime. He simply slammed the door, yelled a little, and got back in the car.

Anyone who knew what T Bob has been through would think he is woman bashing when they read it, esp. if they turn a blind eye to the truth or go into something with their own agenda, or with their defenses up, and I think that is the case here, which is why the view of what Bob said on antoher thread was interpreted wrongly. And even if one didn't know, they can at least read and interpret it properly.

In other news, maybe this has something to do with it.

Guess who got the farm, the furniture, the electronics, the expensive crystal, the stocks?

You need to sue your divorce lawyer for malpractice. I live in Ohio too, and I can't figure out how you came out on the losing end so badly.

I pushed the HazMat button on the Nazi thread. What a brain-dead pinwheel that guy was. The thread went away before I could point out to Mr. Beanhead that Jesus WAS a Jew. Oh well. Those "Christian" Nazis never figured that one out.

Actually when I started the thread I said " I don't want to paint the men here with a broad brush, because I know and have met several who respect and cherish women. I am just asking for the same respect for the rest of us. That FR has gotten out of hand with the woman bashing and we need to step back and look at ourselves and what we are posting "

Then I posted several links to threads that really socked it to women, and several that said that American women are trash and to get a mail order bride because they are easier to control.

I thank you for your kind words, I do watch what I post because I am not man bashing, I am asking for kindness. I don't see how that is degrading to men. We have all been burned, heck, I have been burned, but I don't hold it against all men. I learn from my bad situations and go on.

I try to consider the people on this forum as a step above average. Maybe I expect too much. I just get disappointed when it turned into a schoolyard. I just wish that people could be more mature.
