What happened here last night?

Like a lot of the regulars here I've put a great deal of effort into keeping this community viable, the last few days have left me disillusioned.

Polite and honest replies are welcome.

Sly had been editing his posts because we both got into a political argument and he seems to have edited one of his posts where Alex said he wrote the N word. Sly only meant it as an analogy. I didn't see that post so I was lost at what Alex was saying. Then Pepe used the word lynch and Alex thought it was offensive so Pepe posted a lynch photo of a black person and Alex took great offense to that and locked it.

Then it spilled into his other thread "Who wants to be my friend, only say yes if you reply" in The Haven here.

The thread I showed you was unlocked by enviro. Posts may have been getting deleted too by Alex or enviro.

There was a misunderstanding.
Hopefully, things are fine now.
Just be very careful/respectful if you post in that thread again.

And stick to the topic, as Enviro said. :wink:

Ok I see, thanks for summing it up and for the directness.

Ok I hope things are fine now, I would miss the fox and the skunk. :D
Also if I have to get more respectful I'll end up in a straight jacket.

You neglected to say that the picture I posted was a mistake.
You couldn't tell the man was black in the sepia/B&W photo that I posted.

I just Googled and picked something, to make the point I was thinking about "Cowboys and Indians", not racial hatred.
(Am I allowed to say "Cowboys and Indians??? <sigh>)
I did that because of the criticism that I used the word "L****mob".
That is were the cowboy era search was inspired.
We didn't learn American history, back in my day, and it was a cultural misunderstanding.

Talk about a comedy of errors. <sigh> :wink:

People that know me would know that the error wasn't intentional. 8)

My grandma always referred to herself as an Indian, but obviously I can't speak for any other First Nations people about if they find it offensive or not. :nerdy:

He is kinda alright too, :mrgreen: but the chewing gum man isnt as endearing as the fox or the skunk.
