Get your attention?

I will be the last person to support censorship, but There IS a difference between censorship and standing up for respecting the beliefs or non-beliefs of others on a PRIVATE message board!
Let's just say that I practice Budhism or Mormonism or Catholocism or American Indian or some Tribe in Africa or Athiest or New Science Church or Islamic or Hinduism or Jewish or Paganism or etc etc etc.......
KICKS................
Believe it or not we don't all worship much less worship the same GOD or GODS.
I live in a place that is DOMINATED by a certain religious group that controls every aspect of life in the WHOLE state. No seperation of CHURCH AND STATE.
I get so sick and tired of people pushing this crap on me. I believe what I believe in and I doubt if anyone could change my mind by going door to door and preaching to me or doing it on a MOTORCYCLE CHAT BOARD!!!!!!
I have seen this on many posts and frankly I am SICK AND TIRED OF SEEING IT!!!!!
I am not RIPPING on you or anyone else that does the religion thing but there is a time and a place for it!NOT HERE!
maybe here>>>>>>> http://chat.msn.com/find.msnw?cat=RL
or here.... http://chat.yahoo.co...1&.v=1600043463
or here...... http://www.resourceh...om/bib_chat.htm
or here...... http://www.spiritweb...pirit/chat.html
BILL-----the MODERATOR
can we maybe censor the foul language AND the other stuff (religion) that is found offensive?
Afterall not all of us find the pitboard humor offensive but the religious stuff "IS"
and to others
the Pitboard is offensive but the religious stuff is NOT!
Either way the bottom line is that the pitboard is only offensive if you have an ounce of filthiness in your brain!
otherwise it should either humor you or not bother you! Maybe it may make you
HOT and BOTHERED!!!!!!!!!!!LOL
I think most of us are just askin to have the religious stuff CHILLED OUT.
Don't take offense to this please, it is just that like I said I am subjected to this stuff EVERYDAY and am fed up to my gils with it.

hope i didn't offend anyone but I am sure that a lot of Thumpers feel the same way but are afraid of speaking out about it.

G4,
I could not disagree with a word you said...

....also along the lines of censorship.....I wish that every post that contained the words HONDA or CR450 would be deleted, especially when followed by something like YAMAHA sucks. I am not one bit against Honda, hey my last bike was a CR250, but I am sick of people posting stuff about a bike they praise but have not ever even sat on.....I know this might open up a can of worms but I have been quiet about this for quite awhile. The internet is huge - go start the CR450F page and dog on Yamaha all you want, but keep the YZ426 page open for the ones who love them....

Uh oh!! Here we go!! Bring it on!! I agree with G4. My personal beleifs are that there is no higher being. Criticize me all you like. My belies how ever are mine and they aren't set in stone. I don't mind speaking about religion in the proper setting. (TT is not in my opinion the proper setting) When someone can give me some evidence that shows of a higher being my beleifs may change. But, after 5 years of college with lots of non-major realted science coarses on cosmos and the beginning of time, as well as Darwin theorys I have formed my own beliefs.
In short I 100% back freedom of speech, choice, and everything else that America stands for and supports. I just don't think that TT is the proper place and I for one don't think it should be here. TT isn't my forum though, I'm just a member that participates in it and enjoys it. I know that I don't have to read everything but I do and I'm allowed to voice my own opinion. I think Kicks... has every right to say what he has to. I just don't feel this is the right place to littearlly preach about it. In short say your peace and we'll read it and take it as we think it should be taken. Sorry for babling on. I just feel that G4 has a valid opinion and support him as a fellow member of the best forum online!!!

Haro,
I totally agree with you. I'm going to laugh when all of those guys sell their YZ and buy the new Honda. "Wow that's a nice bike, too bad it's nothing like what Hughes rides!" "Wanna race? come on, my bikes 3 years old? What are you worried my Yamaha will beat your Honda? I hope it doesn't break cause then you will need to deal with that Honda customer service that you praise so much."
HEHEHEHE

Do you ride a HARO bike? If so, you should sell it and buy a Mongoose or a GT oh wait better yet a cannondale!! :)

Amen G4!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am tired of it too - religion always thrown in my face. And to all of you would be CRF450 owners " Can you get your checkbooks out now to offer some redemption to your salvation, while you receive a face full of roost from the big bad blue"

Sorry guys,
I am not a profesional writer so you'll have to excuse the internet shorthand and poor sentence structure!
It is just that this subject in particular gets me HOT!
When someone complains about something that is claimed to be offensive to them but have the gaul and lack of open-mindedness to see that the way they were trying to express their feelings about the offensive subject to others ONLY TO BE SO CLOSED MINDED that they failed to see that they in turn OFENDED the offensive party!
We call this HYPOCRITICISM!!!
SORRY AGAIN
Maybe we could all meet in a religion chat room and discuss this subject but for now I am going to my Thumpers bedroom and grabbin' a MILLER (or 2) and VROOOOM VROOOOM til 1430 today when this cast comes off.
Ps
if the cast isn't off I need to buy or trade for ONE size 12 right side MX boot that my cast will fit into..!!!!!!!!!LOL
or maybe just a little duct tape over the toes will work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SCHWEWWWWW!!!!!!!!

I agree on this preaching crap, but I also feel the pic that G4 posted is not appropriate for this site. Lets get back to Bike jokes, stories, sugestions, dogging on each other in fun and stuff like that. G4, you could have worded a story or thought just as funny and not as offensive. Leave Sex and God for other forums.

Not quite sure what pix you are talking about that was offensive.
There have been only 2 pix posted by me.
One was of my Hurricane for sale.
The others was of my 6mo old daughter sitting on my bike.
I hope no one found these offensive!!LOL
You must have me confused with someone else.
g4racing not G-Man
Although I DO find the pitboard pix hillarious but maybe not appropriate for here.......BUT it WAS labled RATED "R"

No comment.
I don't want to discuss religion on THIS board.
But I can say that I do think that Motorcycles should be included in
"THE OLYMPICS"

G4Racing,
I am totally sorry for posting your name and not G-Man. I was refering to G-mans post. Althought the girl with the board doesn't really bother me, I feel it was unappropriate for this site as is the preaching..

One again, Sorry G4Racing.

Hey G-man! I just tried to find your post about the perfect day and I can't find it? Was it removed? If so that is absolute bullshit!!! I can't think of anything that gets me more worked up than religion and censorship! I don't normally spread my beliefs to others but just to prove my point that everyone has different beliefs I will.

ORGANIZED RELIGION- Crap. an outlet for people who don't have anything else to hold on to.

GOD- Who knows. The only thing I know exists for sure is life. So lets celebrate it in it's many forms.

CENSORSHIP- Crap. Who's to say what's offensive. Not me, not you so save it!

PRAYERS- Don't waste them on me. I've got my own deal goin on and it doesn't involve you or your god.

SEX- Good.

BEER-Good.

DIRTBIKING- Excellent. The best!

Sorry to rant but just remember that while you find someone offensive, someone else finds you offensive too. You don't agree with me?? I don't give a crap! Let's hang out and drink beer anyway! or juice or whatever else it is that you drink. G-mans post was funny and I'm pissed that it's gone. I mean come on, a blowjob after a great ride? Tell me what's better than that??

Peace out. I must go pray to my rubber chicken. Bastards.

Wow the post did disappear. One thing about this forum is, it isn't open. Someone does run it and it's up to that someone (moderator) to put allow what ever they want and not allow what ever they want. I disagree with this but I can't do anything about it since I don't run this forum. I also know that this is the best forum in my opinion so I'm not going to up and jump ship because the moderator deleted a thread. Sorry but DRN doesn't have nearly the info that interests me there as TT. If anyone wants to read what the original thread started as email me cause I got a copy of it since it was pretty funny. I changed the girls name to my liking though.

Man, this is just like an encounter group!
Sort of theraputic to get all these feelings out, eh guys! LOL. For about the third time I'll state again and echo most of your replys. The religious stuff is best left to other forums, I didn't see anything wrong with G-Man's censored post, and let's get back to discussing the big blue thumpers!!!

01 TT-R125L (my son's)

<font color="navy">Hell, I don't really care what anybody posts. If I don't like it, I'll ignore it. No big deal.

To everyone:
<h2>Do one thing for me; keep the throttle pinned! :)</h2>

I think if we all just do that, we'll be the happiest people alive. :D
