    Default Censorship

    Why is it that ever time someone post something about Barack Hussein Obama the post gets locked. This my friends is how the media works.Forum boards are a form of media and if the person or persons that run them don't agree with your views they will censor them. just my two cents. I mean no disrespect to anyone on this board. I am just expressing my view. Just one more thing Its called the white house.

    Ron,

    The threads are not being locked because someone has posted something about Obama. The threads are being locked because some users cannot abide by Chris' numerous requests to use RTF as the resource it can and deserves to be and stop personal attacks/insults, racial comments and/or statements that could lead to litigation involving RTF. These types of posts should not be a part of RTF's culture.

    Sprint,

    I think that in posting your two cents, you may have lost count. I think you meant to write that "every time" something gets posted about Obama, it gets locked. Is that what you meant to say?

    Let's clarify that and then we can move forward.

    If your question is not rhetorical, but actually desires a response from the administrator doing most of the thread locking, I'll gladly give one.

    Thanks,
