The excuses people sometimes give for their actions can be very strange indeed, and often hide motives that they would prefer did not come to light.
For example, a fellow Moderator at the website 'Gods4Suckers' recently removed two of my posts concerning an American Congressman without having first contacting me directly to indicate that their sensibilities had been offended by them, and then went on to rebuke me publicly in the relevant thread for posting pornography on the site. Apart from demonstrating that person's lack of courtesy towards a fellow Mod., not to mention their rather strange view of what constitutes 'pornography', their actions are indicative of either a remarkable double standard or evidence of a more underhand motive.
My reasons for arriving at that conclusion are simple: apparently it was OK for me to write hundreds of posts in a similar vein about George W Bush, all and sundry public religious figures, or to ridicule the various theists or fundamental Xtians who were brave enough to visit the site from time to time, but as soon as I mocked a cherished Democratic Congressmen my two posts had to be removed without so much as a 'by your leave', or without an reference to me apart from a rather snide public accusation from the other Mod., that I had somehow befouled the site with pornography.
However, since no one had so much as complained about any of my other hundreds of comments regarding persons other than the Democratic Congressman in question, far less actually having removed any of them without reference to me in the past, despite their similar content, it indicates rather strongly that something else was afoot - particularly as the other Mod., regularly maligned public figures either she did not like or who's policies she did not agree with.
Now it matters not one whit to me whether my two posts regarding the Democratic Congressman were removed, per se, and I can ignore the remarkable lack of courtesy to me by a fellow Mod., and quondam friend, but it was quite clear to me that if my comments regarding the Congressman were 'beyond the pale' then those I had made about everyone else were equally so, and therefore they also merited deletion.
Accordingly, I spent some time last night deleting hundreds of comments of mine that I had the power to do as a Mod., before resigning from 'Gods4Suckers', but that still left an even greater number that I was unable to delete personally, though I have formally requested that everything I ever posted on that site be removed. I have been assured by another Mod., that she will personally remove all of those posts of mine, but whether that happens remains to be seen.
In the meantime, I wish to make it clear to everyone that I completely dissociate myself from the 'Gods4Suckers' site, and that I am not responsible for any posts that remain there which bear the pseudonym 'The Old Git'.
Finally, there are a number of people at 'Gods4Suckers' to whom I wish 'all the best'; I hope you know who you are, for I certainly do.
It was fun whilst it lasted.
