Apology

I posted a political cartoon that has evidently been pulled. It was pretty offensive - which was the point of posting it, but I can see how some people might have been so offended that they reported it. Or perhaps it was some kind of copyright issue. If it is the former, then I definitely apologize. If it was the latter, then I apologize for that as well.

I think it more likely you had some sort of fumble.
I can't see how the mods would not have dropped you a line to explain their actions.
Unless one of the "secret" mods who's normally afraid of this side of the forum stumbled across it by accident...

Actually the mods do not always tell you when something is pulled.... 2nd there is no reason to worry Ted.
Although I have sometimes found your posts/threads loquacious I have never found your posts offensive.
Sometimes "we" post stuff that not everyone gets. Long ago I remember bfd and others protesting humorously about having their. . . drum roll """ post pulled""" It is a badge of honor sometimes me thinks.
We can not always echo the party line comrade *(:>* And there is definitely a party line imho

De nada... our loyal and helpful mods save me from myself every now and then. I have no issues with their sense of public propriety.

There are times we do not filter what we think or write as well as one would think.big grin smiley

Ted - I checked the pulled post pile in the back room and there is no sign of any post of yours being removed. Not sure if the glitch was on your end or the forums. but there was no post pulled that I see. Please feel free to repost.

Is this the post? It's recent and with a political cartoon.

Whenever it appears that an image has disappeared, it's best to wait to be sure whatever off-site host you are using hasn't hiccuped, before panicking.

Boy, I hope not. I don't see anything there that would warrant removing it.

It is, however, a treat in this forum to have civil discourse, real concerns for others' issues and quite a number of us who openly acknowledge our quick typing. I don't mean this to be directed at the cartoon - that is not even remotely offensive, IMO. We disagree with passion, but it is surprisingly tempered with personal respect here.

No apology required. I should probably apologize a few times myself. devil smiley

I'd be interested in seeing that cartoon.

How was that? I find him to be an interesting speaker. He's really smart. But I saw him at the library, not when he was doing "This Filthy World".

I HATED John Waters for this little clip... back when I used to smoke, sitting through a 2 hour movie was hell and Waters didn't help much :-)

Ack. I've been away for a few days camping with my son and a friend and then I check back here and GGD nailed it. That is the cartoon I was thinking was gone. Being the dummy I am, I was thinking that I had started a new thread with a post linking to the cartoon, so when I went to look for the thread and didn't see it, I just jumped to the conclusion that it got yanked (hidden). Duh!

Next time, before posting a dramatic mea culpa, you should first do an Advanced Search on your name to see if it shows up on the list of your posts.

Doing the search is a good idea.
