Had I not have been suspended for giving my views on the PIF, I would have already sent you the 360 for the highest yearly account
But I don't know who next is gonna get mad at my conservative views. It's gonna be awhile before I give a dime
I'm not sure what to think about this reply.
A few remarks.
If you like this forum, want to keep it going, and can spare some money, you donate some, or become a premium member. You don't have to.
About people getting mad at your remarks: I have not read them, so I do not know if that suspension was justified. And now in retrospect I do not want to know.
But this forum is about a hobby for most of us. For some it is their profession. The object of this forum is to have the hobbyists enjoy their hobby.
So the rules are set so people can enjoy this forum without being confronted with unpleasant posts.
It is no problem if you find someone an A-hole. But you can't say it on this forum.
It is no problem if you have conservative views, but if they have nothing to do with fountainpens, do not vent them here. Same goes for left-wing, religious, race-related or sexual opinions.
And if it does have something to do with fountainpens, write in such a way as not to hurt someones feelings. And remember that we are a global community. What you find acceptable language, someone across the globe might be offended. by (sometimes because they are not native speakers and do not understand a pun or joke)
There have been members who like to have a strong discussion and did not find the possibilities for that here in this forum. They went elsewhere, and have opened another forum where it is okay to jeer and whine etc. Nice for them.
But if they come here they should "behave".
If you feel at home in this environment, enjoy yourself here.
