While the "Screw you guys, I'm going home!" approach to a "discussion" can be a pretty childish one, I must concede that I wouldn't really feel welcome in a forum anymore if even that forums mods disagreed with me to the point that they used their powers to manipulate my posts. I'm sad to see Rich go, because I don't really fall squarely on either side of the political spectrum, so it was nice to see people arguing both sides of each argument. Conservatives were already in short supply around here (the original point of this thread, n'est-ce pas?), so the loss of one of the most - if not the most - vocal conservatives on here is disappointing.
