Don McLean was right, bye, bye miss American Pie, the day the music dies. The music has died!
I got the breeze in my hair, the sun is setting slowly and I’m turning blue, why? It’s over! Our way of life is setting and it ain’t pretty or sublime. We just have to survive the next couple of years!
Covered my butt, I do like it here. It certainly has changed. I’ve been here a few years, been there done that. Sometimes have to fight in a different arena. We could all just swear allegiance to socialism and be done with it!?!? I’m at a complete loss! Taking it one sunrise to the next!
Guess we’re going to have to ask ourselves, where do we stand?

I’d suggest maybe take a couple deep breaths and try to calm down. The First Amendment doesn’t protect us here — that’s about what the government is prohibited to do. We are essentially visitors in somebody else’s living room here at USCCA — forum participants don’t pick the rules of behavior, the owner does.
If a participant flags a post, or the (usually silent/absent) moderators pick it up on their own, it’s USCCA who decides whether their Community Standards are being observed or ignored, not the person who felt there was some transgression. That’s how a private forum works. Hosts are responsible for the chaos of the party and can make their own rules — some will set a high bar for civil behavior, others pretty low. Guests are expected to follow house rules, not make them or ignore them.
If I flag a problem for the good of the order, and a response is declined — I shrug and carry on. Not my house; not my problem. If I’m notified that I’ve bent or broken a community rule, I adjust my behavior or I change where I hang out. Happy guest fits in; unhappy guest goes home.

Welcome to the club, sir. One of mine was flagged yesterday because I simply quoted a post and replied “Best response EVER!”. The original post is still in place at the top of the thread. How 'bout them apples?
There’s an old Army saying that really good NCOs will all get demoted at least once or twice in their career.
Don’t let it bother you too much if someone takes offense once in a while. As long as you’re not being a jerk, it’s their problem, not yours.
Schmidt’s beer is offensive to people of good taste. That’s why!
Well said and thank you. Hooah!
This is one of the reasons I typically limit my practice to the Louisville/Jefferson County Metro and several of the surrounding counties. I know the judges and the prosecutors and have developed good working relationships with most of them. Not to say that I never leave these counties, but I am hesitant to do so because it is typically not in the best interest of the client.
