Oh I don't know... you almost have to admire how often Cutter can write insulting posts on a fairly regular basis without them being deleted. I mean you guys deleted one of mine when I quoted a post and then simply said, "The irony..."

If you have an issue with a moderation decision then you're welcome to reach out and ask for an explanation. Your post was likely removed because it quoted another with removed content.

In terms of removing other posts, we're not allowed to remove posts that we dislike, we go by the forum guidelines and often discuss these things internally as subjective judgment is involved. I'll bring up your concerns with Blue and JD.

Reach out how? I reported that comment, I think it's so obviously unacceptable that it didn't need to break any of the short list of rules (although rules #2 and #6 are arguable). I was going to comment that I could come up with something truly objectionable that technically didn't break any of those rules but that's redundant. Cutter already did.

Cutter should have been banned long ago.

It's impossible to express how distasteful and disappointing this comment is.

And I agree with the mods that it isn't rule breaking. Not that anyone asked me.

The quoted post was not removed. I would not have had an objection if that was the case. It was quite some time ago (months, if not years) and I'm not particularly worried about it -- just simply remember it. And yes, I am familiar with the guidelines. Hence my compliment to Cutter for his ability to walk right up to the line consistently, rarely crossing it, although I suspect there would be some disagreement about that.
I will say that I've seen Cutter cross that line quite a few times and Blue has slapped him down for it over the years. He's been particularly hellbent on toeing it lately though, so I would assume that it's a quantity issue here and not so much an inconsistency issue with moderation. At this point, every time I see Cutter's name on a post I simply expect the worst hot take imaginable and if he doesn't reach it I'll just be pleasantly surprised.

I don't know without seeing the context but fair enough. Anyways we're careful to separate our personal feelings about posters and their opinions from the forum guidelines. I was expressing my personal feelings about his post but it was ultimately not at an actionable one at this time. Blue is very good about listening to feedback though and I appreciate where you're coming from.

You are correct, but money is only part of it. The real issue is keeping the poors in their (our) place and preventing them (us) from dictating any employment terms.

they were doing exactly what you would've done you soulless idiot. they were confronting what they thought was an active shooter with whatever they had in hand. yes technically he was defending himself; more importantly the situation never would've arisen if he'd never been there with an illegal weapon. still hurts my head they didn't stick him with at least an illegal weapons charge.

Your statement implies that if it was rabid conservatives that tried to kill you, you wouldn't blast on them and let them kill you.

It doesn't matter whether that child drove 5 miles or 55, crossing the state line is crossing the state line.
Glad to know it was for work, did that job guarding a parking lot and murdering people come w/health insurance?
You pick the flimsiest hills to lean on.

You seem to really cling to this technicality that he lives right on the state border and has to cross it to go to work. Have you actually looked at this on a map? Try googling "Antioch, Illinois, to Kenosha, Wisconsin"

This has already been discussed in detail in court where he was found not guilty, I recommend you just read up on what really happened.

To be in possession of a weapon that didn't belong to him, purchased in-state by a 3rd party, while he is residing out-of-state...I mean...you can argue the 'across state lines' issue till you're blue in the face, it doesn't change the fact that he lied about his reasoning for being there, he was treated absolutely differently because of his 'position' in society, and was given a very softball criminal court case because he 'killed bad men' while simultaneously proving the reasoning why we need stricter Federal regulations on gun ownership.
