Having been banned and moderated and deleted a good number of times in these WGT forums . I have seen political statements not as harsh as those deleted from these pages before .
Hence my observation below .
There are subjects and opinions that are just not to be touched or crossed here
That does not mean that I am in favor of censorship . I have always believed that everyone has the right to their own opinion .
There have been some very political conversations in our CC forum . I used to encourage that as well . Thinking we were all adults enough to handle a conversation .
Surprisingly on a couple of occasions . There were some that could not handle that others had strong view points the other way . And felt they could not belong to the same CC as some that felt as they did . And some have left over that . There were others that also believed as they did and do not have a problem being friends with and playing virtual golf with the other guys .
But every once in a while that will happen . I try now to not discuss politics in the CC forum . But it is still allowed .
One unfortunate situation occurred once . Where a very active and popular player . Invited another player .
The invite was declined , with the message " I don't play with Republicans . "
The guy told me about it . Would not tell me who had done it . I still don't know .
But he eventually left . For other reasons .
But I don't promote that kind of talk . But there was nothing I could do about it .
It takes all types . I do my best to respect everyone .
There is no degrading or insulting ever happening in our CC .
The only forum I have ever seen the extreme degree of degenerates that we have in WGT is here .
There is no other forum anywhere that would allow even one mention of the content spoken here .
