I have not always agreed with the censorship. I have also seen people who were banned, return, so I encourage all who were banned to email MN and work it out (you'll probably wind up better friends for it, and have way more fun on DP, knowing MN).
When I read this thread, I thought MN made some very good points, because it's not that he opposes conspiracy theory, it's that some theory's, especially when it hits so close to a home that you love, and you don't want to leave, even if you do want to leave (as MN is moving) and this has been a very long, hard goodbye, and all this going on while he's at ground zero.. his soul is being tested, he even admitted it was a hard week for him.
If you care about MN, the people who were hurt by the bombing, then show some respect to those who are actually effected by having to remain indoors, and too scared to empty their recycling. Imagine if at this moment an event happened to your next door neighbor.. global news event.. swat is everywhere, you've been notified to remain indoors, you hear helicopters.. see LAO vehicles pulling up.. they want to use your bathroom.. you hear people are dead.. you hear the danger is not over.. and now three days later of this news.. someone is telling you that your neighbor isn't your neighbor, and your neighborhood (one that you LOVE) is anything but what you know it, and none of them have ever been to your neighborhood.. enough becomes enough..
those people who were banned from posting can still read the DP: PLEASE, email MN. This really isn't about you and your conspiracy thoughts or what you contributed to DP.. this is about our friend who is watching his life blow up in his face and people seem to care more about actors and fake blood than their friend who makes all this actually possible, by posting what is hitting too close to home for MN.
If you would rather garden, than by all means.. but if you can put "you" aside, and email your friend MN because you really do love this community, and it's not all about MN, it's just MN is understandably dealing with alot that I KNOW, from your own histories (knowing some of you who have been banned, beyond DP community.. you are my friends, and I don't want to lose you).
((((((MN))))) THANK YOU for the kind words about my brother's passing on the other thread.. I appreciate your understanding, as it is very difficult time (and sometimes I feel just sick, ugly frownie face).. I see what you are going through and I'm speachless, partially because of my own grief.. but I see yours (((MN))) I'm crying with you.. I know you LOVE Boston, I know you hate what is happening, and hate isn't your motovator.. I can hardly imagine the kind of energy wave that has hit you from the terrorist attack (REAL or not).
I'm doing my best to breath deep and count blessings, which you are included, as with those who you have taken a breather from the DP. I don't know what I can do to mediate, but I hope we all remain the disfunctional family I love, for years to come.
