I was led to believe that people could post and express whatever they wanted here on SF so long as it didn't break any forum rules. My sig doesn't break any forum rules. Further, there are threads on this forum that discuss sex while smoking pot, threads that have pics of some pretty dicey things that others might find disturbing, etc...yet none of those are censored.
On top of that...isn't that the whole point of the "ignore" function? I mean, if my sig doesn't sit right with you, I wholly support your right to put me on ignore and enjoy this forum without having to see it. But refusing to use the ignore button and trying to have admin force me to augment my expression is ignorant and activist in nature. You're trying to inhibit my expression at my expense when you could easily just put me on ignore.
The truth is:
1.) my sig breaks no rules..
2.) my sig portrays drug use...and it's not the only portrayal of drug use on this forum. Why is mine so...relevant to you?
3.) once people forgo the "ignore" function and start clamoring to have things removed or prohibited on the grounds that it disturbs them, it's a pendulum that can swing the other way, too....do you want people enforcing their prohibitions on you?
4.) This is the very illustration of intolerance.
5.) This is exactly what the other pic in my sig is talking about. It's really, and I mean really simple-minded and dictatorial.
So for some reason, for some members of SF, putting on ignore just isn't good enough...for some reason, they need to have my sig altered to make their universe a bearable place to be. Get a grip, get a life, and go fuck a catcus. I have a funny feeling this has a lot more to do with who's sig that is, rather than the sig itself.....
Want my sig gone? Have me banned.
