Be Careful What U Say!!!

5 posts in this topic

I see that the 1st amendment does not apply here. In a forum of what seemed educated and passionate people its obvious we're only allowed to express our opinions if they don't differ with the site moderators point of view. I did not use profanity, I was not racist, nor did I violate any of the terms of any agreement, nor the rules of this forum. I was blocked from posting, my tapatalk disabled along with being called names by this person. I like this forum and find it relaxing to read the daily musings of a sport I love. I guess I need to step in line and be forced to agree with him. I was wrong. Apple products are the best. They will raise humanity to a newly evolved status in the hierarchy of life and make us universally supreme. In fact I'm gonna go out and buy an overpriced iPad right now so I can sit in a cafe, look cool, and create a new account because I'm sure this one will be banned.. that will teach me a lesson iacus.

Before you spout off about the 1st amendment you ought to try reading it.  This forum is not Congress nor, applying the judicial extensions of the 14th amendment, is it a state.  You have no right to anything when you are a guest of someone, as you are a guest of iacas here.  Lose the entitlement mentality and grow up.  And take a civics course, if you are going to whine about amendments.

I always have to laugh when people post about, "rights" on this forum.  You have no rights.  This is not a democracy.  Im not trying to be smart or funny either, Im being completely honest.  The above is what Iacas has stated time and time again.  TST is his baby and if you dont like it theres plenty of other golf forums out there.

Amendment is just an analogy, I never asked for an uprising. Pointing out the fact how childish it is to kick someone out of a sand box because I don't like his toys. If he acted this way in real life I'm sure I'd have fun going toe to toe. Just silly things people do when the hide behind a computer. I'm mocking this dictatorship, which happens to be a PUBLIC forum.

You were blocked from one thread because you had nothing to offer to that thread. That thread, btw, had absolutely nothing to do with golf. You'll note that others disagreed with me in that thread and have not suffered.

In case anyone's wondering, he's referring to his post(s) in http://thesandtrap.com/t/63337/iphone-case-i-made/ which included brilliant insights like " I hare to hate, but I despise Apple."

You're complaining about not being able to post about why you hate Apple in a thread in which a long-time member and supporter of the site posted a cool case, and then we were discussing antenna issues, and you posted some bizarre anti-Apple haterboy rant... in a golf forum.

This site is not a dictatorship, not even close. We ban and delete fewer posts than virtually any other forum out there. The one over-riding rule of the forum is that you act like an adult, and your haterboy post didn't rise to that level, AND it was off topic in a thread that was already not golf-related.

I've owned a forum - and participated on them - long enough to know where your continued behavior in that thread was going to lead.

Unfortunately, I could have also probably predicted this one too. If you have a problem, PM me. Posting publicly is not the way to go about it properly. Enjoy your one-week timeout. I've got better things to do.

      Oh, good Lord! I can't believe that you entered such a completely off the mark reply! I thought you had some smarts. Valuable eyeballs? There are no such things! There are only eyeballs. Advertising rates are established on "number of impressions", in other words the number of people who see your ad. The only "value" established for those "eyeballs" is what age they are, what demographic they belong to. If you're seeking to market to a particular demographic, you might pay more to place an ad on "this" show rather than "that" show. And who said anything about "left and right"? You did! You used the phrase "industry supported research", which is a code phrase of the left to indicate research that is suspect! When have you ever heard "Entertainment Industry supported research", or "Actor supported research" in reply! And please don't try to tell me that government sponsored research is as pure as the wind driven snow. I've just realized that you may be confining your remarks to the field of physics. In that realm, they might be valid. Besides you, me, and a couple of guys behind the tree, who the hell cares? I'm referring more to "agendized" science, like climatology, nutrition, and prescription drugs. As for blind funding, that doesn't mean throwing money at any bunch of yahoos who cook up some hare brained scheme. All it means is that the people who are doing the research don't know where the money is.coming from. So they don't know who is buttering their bread! Let's face it, scientists are people, and they need to make a living. There was a line from "The Big Bang Theory" that, while fictional, makes real world sense. In one episode another physicist, Barry Kripke, is asked why he's still studying string theory. He says, "Hey, I study a theory that can't be proven, I apply for grants, and I spend the money on booze and broads!"
    • "Swing Machine Golf" by Paul Wilson
      I will apologize in advance if this post winds up being long. I went out for my first round of golf in 2015, shot a 110, went home, put my clubs on Craigslist, sold them within a day and decided to quit the game. I had been playing for 25 years but only felt I was getting worse. Then, while planning a summer trip to Las Vegas I stumbled upon Paul Wilson's golf videos. I watched a few and couldn't believe how simple he made the golf swing look. I picked up an extra driver from my garage, started trying to swing free and easy and went to the range 2-3 times a week to see if this method would really work. My first time out I shot 97. The second was a 92. The next was an 85. Then, I booked a pair of lessons with Wilson during my vacation. Long story short, Paul Wilson's teaching methods kept me from quitting the game. My handicap is down to an 11, and I am scheduled for two more lessons with him in July so I can confirm somebody who reads this forum is a Wilson disciple. While he can get pretty technical when describing his approach for me it's pretty simple - turn to the top, start the downswing with the lower body and let my arms swing loosely. I expect to break 80 for the first time in my life by the end of the year.               One more thing, which has been noted previously in this thread - if I get off track I immediately go to YouTube, que up a couple of Paul's videos and know exactly what I'm doing wrong. His web site is an incredible resource for me, and I assume it's the same for many others.
    • Muirfield Out of Open Rota, Denies Women Membership
      I was under the impression that Cypress Point had been removed from the "Crosby Clambake" simply because the membership at that course didn't like the idea of the general public trampling on their hallowed turf.  Part of that reasoning might be based simply upon the notion of exclusivity and status; on the other hand, the environment around the course is somewhat fragile and having thousands of golf fans moving around that delicate seaside plant life and sand dunes would not be good for it. You can't tell me that most of the pros who play in the AT&T ProAm don't try and pull whatever strings they have at their disposal to play a round at Cypress during the weekend or weekdays before the AT&T event given the spectacular design and the chance to play a relatively well-preserved MacKenzie design. So even now that Cypress Point has female members I don't believe we can expect that we will ever see it on the AT&T course rota again.
    • Carry-on one Driver golf club in airplane? US and to Eurpoe?
      Thanks, Iacas. I will carry on one Driver with me without  any packaging.  I will have to pass through security check and X-ray scanning. By the way, my flight will be from Toronto Pearson airport to EU, so I hope Canada will have the same regulation as US since they are part of NA (North America). I will let you know if I will get into any trouble.  (I will not do practice swing inside the plane, but I may try while I wait around boarding area. ) Thanks!      
    • 2016 Mets World Championship Thread
      This kind of makes me laugh. I heard the Cleveland Indians GM interviewed on radio before a series with KC. Turns out he's a big friend of the Royals GM. He said the Royals Gm told him that his players were joking with him about how full of themselves the NY media was. They would ask the Royals players "Have you ever seen a pitching staff like the Mets?" The Royals players would answer, "Yes! Every time we play the Indians, Tigers, White Sox, or Twins! We're used to seeing good pitching!"
