Default Got a ban from the children (mods) at CF

Well it happened yesterday I got a 6 month ban for merely typing out the truth.

I learned many decades ago the old stereotypes about many blacks are true. One is give them a little power and they will act like there king shit. Well at CF they gave a bunch of power to a new crew that is basically one way in regards to posting. Their way or the highway. They do not like something even if its true it they call it racist and issue bans.

Was involved in a thread yesterday and one poster made a comment about blacks not able to run a city. My reply was why stop there they cannot run villages, towns, county's, states, countries not just cities. Now this has been proved out way too many times, just read the paper or watch the news its no big secret.

Millennium sent a couple IMs and the forum enforcer sent a ban for 6 months for a post that got me one demerit.(1 point)

Since the spoiled kid squad took over, a forum in decline has gone downhill at a much faster pace. I have made a point up to now of not cross-firing between the two Corvette forums. To me what happened at one forum there it stood.

Guess I made a good kill for Millennium to put on his resume as I was a almost 19 year poster. I sold my last Vette a few years ago and find I spend much less time on the forums due to that.

I really do not spend much time on these forums, it shows me on all day most times but I only check in when I'm not too busy, as I mostly use the computer to keep track of my portfolio.

I spend much more of my free time under a different screen name with a well run gun forum.

I haven't been back there since my one-day ban in December 2022.

They simply cannot handle hearing the truth. It's a wonder they can even look at themselves in the mirror.

Was there mainly for technical information on C5's. Last few years as value dropped all the knowledgeable people vanished from the forum. I see the moronic, non- mechanical answers to known issues that I can imagine. While I still bounce through there, it's getting less and less as time passes. The endless BS issues with my ZO6 have me pretty set on getting rid of it next time it's running again anyway.

I still post over there, but only informational posts with no direct challenges to democrat lies to avoid another ban.

It used to be a hoot challenging the sheep when it was an open discussion forum.

I'll probably never sell my C6. I still visit the forum and post very little anymore, specially in PRC.

You'd think they would be in a better mood with this being their month and all.

In psychology there is this effect of characteristic salience. When you remind someone that they have a certain characteristic, they will subconsciously become more of the qualities they associate with that characteristic.

In one study, they gave identical math quizzes to randomized groups of women. The proctor in one group commented on how they were all women. Another group had it pointed out that they were all Asians. The scores from the groups who had their awareness raised to their female gender were lower than the scores from the groups who were reminded they were Asian. People internalize the stigma that women are bad at math, Asians are good at math.

In other words, remind black people that being black is a characteristic of their existence, you'll basically get black people being hyperblack for a month, for better or for worse (definitely worse)

Well I gotta say, in the current climate over there, you HAD to know that one wasn’t going to go over well…..

I still enjoy posting over there, and here. I’ve just learned to tamper down my posts there, it just aint the anything goes place it was 5-10 years ago.

If I want to say something controversial and not hold back, I just say it here. Pretty simple really…..

I just got a month for posting politics in off topic. I don't even remember what I posted. I probably forgot that I was in ot. Bunch of DEI hires just proving the stereotype, I guess.
