I understand RW wanting to shut his thread down, and Mike has the choice not to show tact in how that was done. As contentious as it may seem to our fellow ex British colony brothers, Cuz had become an unlikely community of decidedly unlike minded people. To suggest we can find other places on the internet to air our differences shows either profound ignorance, or total disregard for what Cuz means to the members who occupied it.
There is a fine line between passion and aggression, and we all know that line was crossed more than a few times. Lets face it though, we all came to Cuz with our own political opinion and agenda, including RW and Mike, so it's actually astonishing it didn't implode inside of a week. I believe the glue that held it together was our shared love Datsuns. As big a dick I thought someone was for talking shit about this issue or that, I knew he couldn't be all bad because he had a Dat, and usually a build thread to go with it. I'm active on other political forums, but they're either like minded people preaching to each other, or it's a total mess. As F'ed up as our media is, it's no surprise our country is divided. I defy anyone to show me any site where this level of difference can coexist and debate current political events. In all reality, we've invested a great deal of trust in each other to be able to do that. More important, I think what's happening on Cuz is exactly what this country needs.
Again, if Mike and RW feel it needs to be shut down, that's their decision and I'll live with it. I don't give a shit if Ratsun isn't a democracy though, shutting down the most active thread on your site without notice or explanation isn't strong or honorable, it's weak sauce.
Nobody but me asked for Cuz to be shutdown Ron..
Pm me and I’m happy to provide my reasons; please leave Mike out of the equation; despite my (at times) publically and private dislike of some of his decisions, he’s acted with integrity, pragmatism, and a sense of doing the right thing, and I fully support his actions to honour, what was from me, a very humble and heartfelt request.
If people are that bummed out about Cuz being locked, start your own similar thread!
Boy ! Did the two of you screw this up ! SHE was after her ex boy friend as of the latest guesstimates . Don't you fools have access to the latest news [as screwed up as it is] ? Even the nightly news in [of all places] Los Angeles has the full details . Wake up and look somewhere else than the screwed up "real news" idiots on the internet !
^^^ Well put Mike, I rest my case!
It appears to me that the average American citizen just doesn’t get it.
I’m at the point now (not that anyone on Ratsun will give a fuck) of doing a Smoke and disappearing.
Twenty seven thousand + posts........ and still........ by everyone.
Anyone who wants to converse with me; send me a pm.
I’ll be asking Datsun Mike to lock this thread; anyone who wants to revive it; off you go!
Our NSA, your DSB. Minuteman ballistic missile, USArmy ABM testing, Military weather satellite programs [helped your remote wild fire detection program], NASA Comsat experiment satellite, USNavy Commsats that outlive its replacement by 20 years, and missile launch detection programs. We may well have crossed paths! I have a print out of the farewell to Woomera joint site.
I was at Woomera in 1988.
We (along with the South Australian tactical Police) drank the Eldo hotel dry (of all its beer anyway).
Very young pup I was in those days.
The Murican subsidised mess on the base was a blast!
Ratwagon speaks of paraphrasing and there it is...
No where did I say none. Part of...
Yeah, there was always antics before... but everybody brought their skeletons out for this whole different world of cray cray.
My blast wasn't with any one other than OP. I get it; he gets it.
And until RDub and I square off again...Y'all have fun until this thread gets merged with Cuz.
The fact that you even think you are capable of playing in the same league as me just proves what a dillusional wannabe you really are!
For the record, I didn't like Hillary. I just don't like Trump a lot more. Lesser of two evils. As for my departure, I got tired of assholes dragging up the election just to stir the pot at every possible moment. In every possible thread. As for Diego's personal views that came to light during that time, I don't care for them, and I don't have a very high opinion of him. I'll be civil and leave it at that. The only reason I even saw this thread was someone else sent me a link for it. I'm on lunch and very soon going back to not caring a whit what happens on Ratsun. I have lots of other more important things to attend to.
If you read this, my post was not in any way meant to demean or belittle you and I sincerely apologise if it came across that way!
I can tell you out-right, Matt is far from snowflake. Nor is he bent that Hillary didn't make office.
First paragraph of your thread...name calling. This is part of the divisiveness brought to this country since October 2016.
And Matt was aware enough to know better. Than he gets crushed, here, for speaking of it. Shame.
And you don't even live here.
And KO got called out for doing the same thing but from the other end.
He said. She said. Right or left. Shouldn't matter. Why drop hate when there doesn't need to be? Anywhere.
Make America great? I've got an idea. Stop being a dick. Every one of us. From the poorest of Dreamers all the way to the faucet at the swamp.
Woh gato, chill.
I’ve got the world of respect for Matt, specially after some motivation he gave me to get my health back on track.
I posted what I did, not to rag on him, but based on what I thought may have been correct.
Wanna reread what you posted and have a good think about it ?
