Mr. Nystrom, tear down this thread!

The DP has been wondrously free of wacko and off-topic threads of late. I can only assume that someone behind the scenes is being vigilant. I also haven't seen any threads, like this one, commenting on Daily Paul policy.

I like Michael's freedom microcosm experiment..

...I find that if I don't comment on post's relating to the Loch Ness monster...they just go away. It's sort of like what's going on over in the middle east...if you don't antagonize them, they eat themselves.
I only came to this conclusion after trying to actively rout them...an exercise in futility.

I like to think of the DP as clearing house for current events, where, with a few ground rules, most of the frivolous stuff gets weeded out naturally...a place where Jive and Liberty Belle can both be heard. Just sayin'.

yes

compliments to the site. Most of the wacko nutter crap is gone and hopefully for good.

Jive..start your own forum

totally 'on topic' to YOUR approved ideas. How bout that? Until then...this is NOT your forum. Respect the communtiy as it is or create your own.

Sorry, I'm suddenly not in a mood to "be nice"

My post was a compliment.

My post was a compliment. Michael had indicated he was going to do something, and I thought he had and that it was working.

Unless the posting guidelines have changed very recently, it says that things Ron Paul would not endorse are unwelcome. Michael wrote good posting guidelines. As long as the site has "Paul" in the URL, I believe the guidelines are appropriate.

Not sure why you think RP would have anything against...

...exploring energy alternatives.

At any rate, please see Michael's letter on the "Donate" tab...in particular, the part under 'And what is the Daily Paul?' where he explains why he allows discussion of the kinds of topics that you find objectionable.

Ron Paul endorses free speech

and a healthy exchange of ideas . I love Ron Paul..he is the most influential person in my life. I think he would be okay with me and what I choose to post. If you want more of a pure Ron Paul forum as you interpret him.... then go to campaign for liberty or email him and ask his approval for every thought and idea you have ....to make sure it is just like his before you post. I believe he would be the first to tell you to get real.

We all have differing ways of

We all have differing ways of going about things. For example, I never use the word "you" in internet discussions. Dr. Paul has taught me to steadfastly keep the discussion focused on the merits and not on people.

I am sorry that I upset you. Oops. There's that word.

Perhaps you could aspire to avoid using the word "wacko"...

...in internet discussions as well.

Whew!

So glad to see you are still here, LB!!!

I'm not either.

"The DP has been wondrously free of wacko and off-topic threads of late. I can only assume that someone behind the scenes is being vigilant." Maybe all of the wacko's, of which I am proud to be one, will just all go away and make the viligants happy that they are free from those who like to try to understand life and the world as a whole, and like to learn and love others different than themselves.

Oh, Yeah!

I love you and value your input and yes, I'll fight for it!

Reminds me of

Yosemite Sam "Back Off"just kidding around,Don't be mad at me please!I am on your side!

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Oh, I'm not mad at you

we just need a little clarification as to what DP is. If you want a pure Ron Paul political forum go to campaign for liberty! If you want free expression..go to DailyPaul. I love this place !!No ...it's not perfect and neither is anyone here...that's why I love it !!!It's real and I have been here over two years...I get mad, I get inspired, informed, motivated, I get frustrated, I get heard, I get ignored and I still keep coming back.

Yep , I think that`s why we all are here.

For exchange of ideas and free expression.

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.

Thank you for setting me straight

I just wanted to make sure,At times I see people take things wrong only to find out that it was not me they were talking about.so they had it right and I had it wrong.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Ditto that.

Thank you, Liberty Belle, for saying what needed to be said.

Someone took that off quick!

I was just getting ready to ask if they had a little anger issue?

Bravo, Jive_Dadsen!

It's nice to see a forum free from "wacko and off-topic threads."

You know, things like the Bilderberg Group, TriLateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, blowback from covert CIA interventions, vote fraud, etc...

Yes, it's nice to politely discuss the differences between a Republican and a Democrat.

...let it not be said that we did nothing.

Thanks, Belle!

And thank you for all that you do - you are truely an inspiration. But as for the changes Michael has made to the site, I'm not sure that I'm on board with that, yet. I guess time will tell. But, thanks to YOU for making me feel welcome. :)

Whats going on here?

I don't understand the OP or your post above! Sorry, maybe I am off ...can you help tell me what this is supposed to be about? No cryptic messages or foggy messages please.

At first I thought

he was commending the moderators and Michael for keeping it real and on topic,Then he posted comment below and now I think he may have been sarcastic,Not sure?
Mine was just making note of how things can be ironic as far as subjects go.I also am glad to be rid of the Celtic Witch thread.

Jive? What are you talking about?

What has you so upset? There is nothing for me to go on here!!

I'm not upset. I am glad to

I'm not upset. I am glad to see the Daily Paul not swamped with wacko threads, divisive and off-topic stuff. The "Tear down this thread" part is just a bit of irony, or so I thought. Threads about Daily Paul policy are off-topic. So I asked Michael to remove this very thread. I thought I was being cute. Guess not. I'll go away until I have something useful to post.
