+++Perhaps, if you want to effect a real democracy, allow a vote to see how many people want to keep The Asshole here, or at least to see what they think could be done with the forum, otherwise this is not a democracy where we can vote and affect how the forum is run, but rather one where the webmaster maintains democracy by not allowing anyone to come to a democratic decision regarding "forum matters" and therefore would be a highly limited democracy.
+++****You must have gone to college on a scholarship. You say things that astound you and think you´ve made a compelling point. What you call freedom and demcoracy, especially in the realm of ideas and writings, is nothing more than some one person deciding what is proper and correct. I tell you I will not be that person.
First of all, my college is not of interest here. And I do not try to make myself sound compelling, this is just the way I speak. If you prefer to take the side of someone who insults people rather than someone who checks out the environment before expressing his views, just because you like the idea of yelling out every personal feeling one has, I verily disagree with you.
As for democracy, the US Constitution was not made for the American people, but for businesses, it was written with double-meanings, so it could benefit businesses in the name of "citizens." George Washington is the 14th president of the United States, but the first president of the Constitution. There were 13 presidents before him, yet how many americans know that? They don't, yet they continue to defend the constitution, when they do not know the first thing about the true aspects of it.
