Mini Meltdown on themat.com again
« on: September 03, 2009, 02:17:15 pm »
they're deleting stuff, ostensibly in an indescriminate manner

over on themat again.

first it was V's threads linking TOM articles. then it was all of V's posts on other threads too. (mind you V was at the top of the All-Time list on their boards).

now they cut several other threads including one as innocuous as "Which is Better the '08 Hawkeyes or the '09 Hawkeyes'.

then the deleted a 'Hey why did you deleted that thread'

now there's another thread discussing free speech, which i assume will be deleted before you get a chance to go check it out.

what's the dealio?

those posters should just come into the light that is TOM!

We should FLOOD that place with invites to TOM... just like we did when we "worded" them to death. Every post we make should include a TOM invite and we should keep posting them no matter how many they delete!

Are you talking about Virgil Earp Du?  I saw that and I never saw that screen name here so I was pretty confused.  I just guessed it was a regular that uses a different name over there.  Wait a minute they deleted all of V's posts or they banned him from themat.com?  That's insane!  He has never posted out of line things and your right he was number 9 or 10 on the most posts list.

EDIT: They did delete his posts.  Unbelievable.

They like Veritas about as much as the Left likes Fox News I guess.  :wink:

I'm wondering who'll ban me first.  :roll:I think 3 or 4 of those guys will cause you problems.

Bog, you are safe even though you are a total dipsh!t.  I give it maybe another week before I am banned for good although I haven't cussed anyone out in a while.  I must be slipping.

You slipped in to the deep end long ago imho. Your opinion has also never meant much to me as you should be aware . Feel free to cuss me out anytime you feel like it. :lol:

That's perfectly fine since your opinion doesn't mean anything to 99% of the population.  I don't even know why I bother.  It's mostly just entertainment for me.

I'm going to make a run through there and see what's happening today ... maybe throw out a few "invites" as well.
