Exclamation "censored!!!"

Hi,

I just wanted to thank...
Kostamojen
Imprezinator
Gambit-(no he wasn't exagerating! 30 in 20min!)
Adrian128-(Crazy Kiwi's!)
Greg I
&
WRX PILOT-(Yeah, he does talk funny!)
for responding so well to my harmless post about a Kiwi's opinion on the new WRX. From my point of view eneryone handled my post just fine and there wasn't any reason to do otherwise. I did my best to use direct "quotes" and try to explain the accent he had because I knew that if I simply said that he hated it people would take it wrong and get pissed off. If you all had the chance to actually hear him talk about it, you would all be holding your sides in laughter!

At first he laughed a little about the i-club, saying things like "Oh, get a LIFE PEOPLE!". But the more I showed him of the club, the more he got into it, and he REALLY thought it was cool that I was putting what he said on the board! "HAHA! I'm FAMOUS!" -he said. He's pretty much computer illiterate.

I'm still trying to figure out why my post was locked. I look at some of the other posts that are alive and strong that have MUCH more abrasive (non-subaru related) material in them than my friends very harmless & comical outburst of opinion when I pulled a new Impreza photo up on the computer. I wonder what he will think of the i-club when he see's that his opinion was "censored".

I guess we all just have to keep in mind that this is Imprezer's forum and he can moderate it the way he wants.

#6. Vulgar profanity is prohibited on the message board.

Does this explain it all?

It doesn't matter if you are quoting your friend or Joseph Stalin. No means no and I will keep it that way.

I don't know why it was locked myself.. I thought it was quite funny..a few tongue in cheek remarks..but nothing nasty. Us Aussies and Kiwis always have enjoyed some sort of friendly rivalry and ribbing, and the sheep thing is an in joke between us.. oh well

Hear Hear !! That Kiwi post was hilarious...I guess I got lucky and read it just before it was censored !! (Doh!)

Loved that bit about wanking it up !! Maybe that means I can call all the car guys I know wankers !!

I will agree though, that the post had to be taken in the right context for it to be funny...which it was (honest!!) I'm still laughing..!

Oh well...censorship happens 'eh !!

What the F***? Censorship Happens? Censorship may have been acceptable in Stalinist Regiems, but its not ok in Democratic Nations. For ANYONE who says "censoship happens - accept it and move on," thanks for giving up on Democracy and MOVE YOUR A** TO CHINA.

SubieRacer/Victoracer,

You are now banned from i Club for trolling, violating rules and using false/dual names on this message board.

So, in order for you to post agian on the i Club, YOU will have to move to China. If you want to further fight for your rights, please e-mail me.

Hey victoracer,

We live in a republic, not a democracy. Get a dictionary or political science book before cracking on the upper management.

This is a privately operated web site. The owners and operators of said site have the pull to do whatever they want, whenever they want. Isn't that partially what living in the land of the free is all about?

I thought the post was funny. I didn't find it vulgar, but I guess some people could.
