Because the responses were in bad taste

Typical, anytime anything good gets going it gets shut down. God forbid we had a community where you could speak openly about things going on.

IMO, if it was my community, I wouldn't have a problem funding local charter guys with my donation to go help in disaster areas. I would rather see them make a living during the off-season than the CEO's of charity organizations.

Still plenty of mess to clean up in the other threads. Maybe F bombs are now okay topside?

I'm sure Capt. Nate telling everyone here to go F themselves might be considered in poor taste considering,, people here donated to him. I mean, on any other normal thread telling us and THT to go F themselves would be a fun thing

In this case it was just trying to stop a lynch mob.

I would suggest reading both threads before they somehow disappear. Some pretty revealing stuff in them. Will be interesting if the d-bag ever shows up around here again.

The "collateral negative comments" comment is what got my attention. What collateral? It looked pretty direct to me.

The trick is to not have any fun, be bland and boring and then you can have an epic thread not get locked. I believe Internet Brands could screw up a wet dream.

The Mods did reply to me - It was closed because it digressed into personal attacks with no redeeming value. Which it did

Maybe not redeeming value - but some value.

Guy comes on here asking for money.

I'll probably get rebuked for this but something about a guy grandstanding around on Facebook for publicity when thousands of people with true servant hearts are volunteering every day doing what is needed really irks me. Best case scenario he solicited donations to fund his personal "play hero" trip.
