    I know "politics" is a taboo topic around here...but dammit, this is simple justice.
    I'm American and I see a US flag at the top of this page.
    If saying "Hell ya" to justice is against the rules...so be it!
    Hell ya!

    I'm puzzled too. I've seen no offensive type of postings. Why close them?

    Robert,
    I see nothing in the guidelines that you just posted that pertains to the threads you closed.

    I didn't see anybody suggesting how we should respond. They were just reporting the facts not their opinions. IMHO.

    This retaliation situation cannot be discussed
    without people interjecting their own personal
    opinions.
    I prefer this not be discussed in the forum and
    will most likely opt to ban such discussion.

    I originated one of the threads. I posted that as I was in this very forum when the breaking news came in. But I can understand the owners motives, any discussion of this kind is likely to degenerate very quickly. After all, this forum is not limited to just americans - I am not one myself.

    I had to work all day and was looking forward to getting home and seeing other HTF members' thoughts on the strikes. I figured something was up as soon as I entered the AHL and didn't see any threads on the topic. But, Ron is right - I can see how easily discussion on this topic could get out of hand. Ah well, no biggie...
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.
